Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. (CSE:CANN, OTC:HERTF) (“Heritage” or “Company”) announces that it has launched its EndoDNA Test Kit in Canada powered through its partly owned subsidiary Endocanna Health Inc. (“Endocanna”). The EndoDNA test analyzes over 500 genes and more than 550,000 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in the human body, and provides a personalized EndoDecoded report, identifying how an individual’s specific genetic makeup interacts with cannabinoids and terpenes. This custom report will help customers select cannabis with the right cannabinoid profile and assist with choosing formulation, dosage, and best delivery method for their needs.
“With millions of cannabis consumers coming into the new legal market each year, EndoDNA aims to bring confidence through education, and to guide cannabis consumers to an optimal health and wellness experience.” says Len May, Endocanna Health co-founder and CEO. “Everyone has a unique response to THC, CBD and all other cannabinoids; no two people will have the same exact experience. This makes it particularly challenging for new consumers with finding the right product for their specific needs. EndoDNA provides consumers with an alternative to trial and error or crowd-source product selection by scientifically matching an individual’s unique genetic expression with optimal cannabinoid formulations.
Customers will have the option of purchasing an EndoDNA test kit through www.Endodna.ca and submitting a saliva swab for analysis. Alternatively, if a user has as report from other DNA testing services, they make be able to simply upload their raw data and have Endo-DNA provide information surrounding cannabinoids which should work best for them.
