With a mission to connect, collect and inform, ValidCare will help product suppliers and developers, researchers, clinicians and consumers improve outcomes through collaborative, member-driven platform
Centennial, Colo. – September 10, 2018 – ValidCare today announced it will bring together businesses, research organizations, clinicians and others working in the cannabinoid (CBD)-product community, to improve patient experiences resulting from cannabis-based products. ValidCare provides Insights-as-a-Service, via technology that includes a trusted, secure private network, advanced machine learning, and a proprietary user interface to build shared knowledge and power product development.
The ValidCare global community will study, educate, measure and document the results of CBD treatments, shifting the industry from anecdotal product and consumer information to an outcome-driven knowledge base, which enables the development of more effective products and treatments, and drives better consumer experiences.
ValidCare offers community participants:
• Cross industry collaboration
• Innovative technology with advanced machine learning
• Visibility into aggregated, real-time data on the health benefits of CBD products
• Progress toward standardization of product identification
• The ability to improve the health of humans and animals using CBD products
Lynn Honderd, CEO and Co-founder of Mary’s Medicinals, an organization innovating at the intersection of technology and horticulture, said “What ValidCare is doing is revolutionary and gets us the data we want directly from the consumer.”
“Our business is developing hemp-based products using proprietary processes that yield concentrations of healthy phytocompounds, terpenes, flavonoids, and phytonutrients higher than any other hemp company,” said Tim Gordon, Chief Science Officer, Functional Remedies. “We’re extremely interested in the ValidCare community because it’s the single place where the industry can document direct consumer experiences and outcomes with CBD-based products. We’ll get specifics on the most effective treatments. The ValidCare goal of helping suppliers and manufacturers create the most effective products is fundamental to our business.”
“Our goal is to help suppliers and developers direct their efforts toward the most effective products, helping people and animals using CBD products get relief and live happier, healthier lives,” said Patrick McCarthy, CEO, ValidCare. “The ValidCare user interface, CBD+Me, allows suppliers to connect with health consumers in real-time, gaining visibility to their ongoing experience. The growing data set becomes critical, as product suppliers and developers, researchers, clinicians and product users and their families work together in a collaborative environment, understanding the results of different products and treatments. We’re excited to create this collaborative community, enabling the entire canna-based industry exponential growth.”
With a mission to connect, collect and inform, ValidCare will harness the power of the community to build knowledge that helps suppliers create optimally effective products, clinicians to offer optimized treatment programs, and patients to participate fully in the management of their health.
