Why we do it
ALPHA-CAT believes that it is imperative to introduce a high-quality system for better production and usage of medical cannabis. There is currently an exponential growth in interest for medical cannabis from patients, doctors, industrial concerns and governments. Many countries have allowed cannabis for medicinal use but most of them have a lack of quality control. The re-introduction of cannabis as a medicine necessitates the introduction of a quality and safety-control management system.
So far cannabis has been used therapeutically for its THC content and we are only just starting to study and discover the benefits of CBD. However many other cannabinoids also have potential medicinal value. Which cannabinoids are present? How to titrate the dosage? How to produce a stable, reliable and consistent product? What are the therapeutic differences between various strains of cannabis? What are their precise concentrations?
ALPHA-CAT addresses all of these issues by providing potency testing, safety screening and quality certification standards for legal cannabis production. Our goal is to understand mechanisms inside the plant that determine the levels of the active constituents (genetics, terpenoids, cannabinoids…) for better medical application. With our research we want to define and categorise plants and cannabis products according to their medicinal values and create quality production standards for consistent, stable and effective medical cannabis products. We want to help doctors to ascertain the most suitable treatments for their patients’ conditions. Click for more info about medical cannabis.
