RELEAF APP PROVIDES RESOURCES FOR MEDICAL CANNABIS PATIENTS TO RECEIVE CERTIFICATIONS, COACHING, AND CONSULTATIONS

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania /AxisWire/ – Releaf App, the real-time data collection tool providing patients, businesses, and medical professionals with efficacy insights regarding their use of cannabis as-a-medicine, has introduced a new app update to provide patients and app users with the ability to book appointments with certified doctors, health coaches, and wellness consultants across the United States and Canada.

The Releaf App is a free app available for download in the Apple Store or on Google Play. The new “Book a Consultation” feature gives patients and app users direct access to doctors and medical cannabis coaches who are certified and available on-demand for appointment bookings virtually, or physically depending on the user’s state or region. With this new feature, patients can compare different cannabis certification groups and seamlessly engage with medical cannabis professionals who can directly consult with app users based on locality.

Leading telemedicine companies like Heally are partnered with Releaf App to provide patients with advice, guidance, and certifications from medical professionals in states like California, New York, Maryland, Florida, Ohio, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and across Canada. For patients or app users in other areas of the United States and Canada, Heally’s certified doctors can also provide general consultations and health coaching that does not result in a recommendation or patient certification.

“I am thrilled that Releaf users will be able to connect with Heally’s certified doctors, right from the app,” said Greg Rovner, CEO of Heally. “With so many new and exciting cannabis products entering the market, it makes sense to provide customers with accurate medical information and real-time advice to ensure they’re buying the right products for their needs. This partnership will undoubtedly drive better outcomes for cannabis patients.”

Releaf App CEO, Franco Brockelman, plans to make additional telemedicine partners and geographic territories available through the app within the coming weeks. “Releaf App continues to be the best free tool for patients to track, learn from, and improve their use of medical cannabis and we’re now developing new in-app solutions to further empower patients to more confidently approach cannabis as medicine,” says Brockelman. “Heally shares our patient-focused approach and has a similar mission to improve cannabis healthcare, so it made a lot of sense to form this partnership and expand the services and support we each provide patients”.

Releaf App plans to announce additional app updates in 2019 aimed at closing the data-feedback loop that exists between grower-processors and licensed producers, retail operators, healthcare professionals, caregivers, and cannabis consumers. Download the Releaf App in the Apple Store or on Google Play today. If you are interested in being a Releaf Affiliate contact the Releaf App team at contact@releafapp.com.

RELEAF APP SUBMITS ANONYMOUS PATIENT REPORTED TREATMENT OUTCOMES TO THE STATE MEDICAL BOARD OF OHIO AS EVIDENCE TO EXPAND MEDICAL CANNABIS QUALIFYING CONDITION LIST

Columbus, OH – January 29, 2019 /AxisWire/ Releaf App – a real time data collection tool that aggregates treatment outcome and product effectiveness information relative to cannabis efficacy – and the National Cannabis Industry Association of Ohio – Ohio’s cannabis industry trade association – submitted a data report to the State Medical Board of Ohio as evidence supporting the use of medical cannabis as a viable treatment option for certain new qualifying conditions under Ohio’s medical cannabis program.

Releaf App provided data insights regarding the efficacy of cannabis used as a medicine to achieve symptom relief for patients suffering from Anxiety, Depression, and Insomnia. Data collected was self-reported information that Releaf App users have submitted over a two-year period while using various cannabis products to help manage their health condition. Patients track their cannabis dosing, product effectiveness, administration methods, and symptom relief outcomes using Releaf App to generate a “Medical Cannabis Efficacy Report”, which healthcare professionals, cannabis dispensary operators, caregivers, and the patients themselves use to make more informed treatment decisions.

In the Medical Cannabis Efficacy Report submitted to the State Medical Board of Ohio, “Anxiety” received the most individual sessions recorded by patients, with a treatment success rate of 67.18% (2nd highest). “Depression” was the next most tracked symptom, with the best treatment success rate of 67.54%. Individuals tracking “Depression” in Releaf App also reported that cannabis had the greatest impact on decreasing the severity of their “depression”, with an average of three deduction levels (on a ten-point scale) per session.  67.29% of patients reported medical marijuana as effective in treating insomnia.

“Using the data to help caregivers and patients make more informed decisions has been our goal since the beginning.” Says Franco Brockelman, CEO/Co-Founder of Releaf App. “We’re excited to work with NCIAO to show how this data can be used by the State Medical Board of Ohio to expand patient access to medical cannabis across the state.”

Releaf App’s data has already been published through two separate studies with the University of New Mexico. The first study, published in Medicines Journal, represents the plants ability to provide relief to those suffering from insomnia. The second publication, found in Frontiers, indicates the medical benefits of THC in providing relief for several symptoms.

“As Ohio considers expanding its qualifying conditions list, we are excited to team up with Releaf App and offer the State Medical Board of Ohio quality observational data reported by medical marijuana patients,” said Thomas Rosenberger, Executive Director of NCIAO.  “Releaf App has been an invaluable resource in demonstrating the efficacy of medical marijuana for treating serious medical conditions such as anxiety, depression and insomnia.”
