Before using cannabis, you now have the chance to see how your mind and body might react to the drug.
Endocanna Health launched its Cannabinoid DNA Variant Test, a comprehensive personalized cannabis DNA test. This direct-to-consumer DNA test kit, which was developed by a team of Endocanna scientists, analyzes a person’s unique DNA markers, aligns it with research to predict his or her response to cannabis, and provides scientific recommendations.
How does this test work exactly?
For instance, there are some people with a specific variant in the gene CYP2C9 who may not metabolize tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) well and should thus be careful about consuming edible cannabis products.
The DNA test also screens for genetic variants that are linked to one’s tendency to develop drug dependence, experience higher levels of anxiety, and certain other traits.
In other words, the test allows users to have positive experiences and outcomes from consuming cannabis. It also helps people demystify their marijuana experiences. What’s more, it establishes the drug as a viable solution to alleviate health and wellness issues.
Endocanna Health, which is a biotechnology research company, uses a patent pending algorithm and process in the development of its Cannabinoid DNA Variant Report. The DNA to be used for the test is from a simple saliva swab or from an existing genetic data from other DNA testing services like Ancestry, Family Tree DNA, MyHeritageDNA, and 23andMe.
After the test, consumers can use their personalized reports to check which cannabis products are a perfect match for their specific genetics. There will also be product suggestions from Endocanna, thus providing a full-spectrum experience.
The Endocanna Health DNA test kit is available through the company’s website, as well as with select retailers throughout the United States.
