Protecting your personal information is of utmost importance to us, and we take extreme measures to keep it safe. We are committed to being fully transparent and want to make sure you understand how and where your information is stored, how it’s used and what you can do with it. 

Most importantly, you own your data!  You can export it anytime right from our App to share with your doctor (encouraged!) and you may ask us to have your data promptly deleted at any time.  All data that you enter and track on the Strainprint App is anonymous and kept on servers in Canada only. All communications between our App on your device and our servers is encrypted. This means that no data ever sits on your device. As well, our entire technology platform is privacy compliant in Canada (PIPEDA and PHIPA), the U.S. (HIPAA), and is currently under review for approval in the E.U. (GDPR). These are the highest standards for privacy of health information in these jurisdictions.

Our mission is to advance the scientific understanding of cannabis for medical and therapeutic purposes. To that end, we aggregate and anonymize all data for the purpose of studying real-time, evidence based experiences with cannabis in order to learn how cannabis works and to improve treatment for all patients:

  • We provide free access to our anonymous information to approved academic researchers & clinicians for non-commercial study and peer-reviewed medical publication; and 
  • We sell software subscription access to anonymous information and technology tools for researching that information, as well as internally-designed research reports, to industry organizations so that they can better serve you.
  • We do NOT gather or sell patient names or purchase information.

If you choose to use our App with an optional Activation Code that was given to you, then the organization that gave you the Activation Code may also have access to your data. You can change your mind and withdraw use of any Activation Code at any time. As well, broad location-based information is gathered in our App so that we can deliver back to you only relevant information on products that are available to you in your market. Partial postal or zip code coordinates may be used to compare or understand geographic differences in use.  Lastly, we use industry standard “cookies” on our webpages to optimize your experience with our services.

Our company was founded by patients, and that’s why patients come first to us. If there’s anything further you wish to understand, please see our Privacy Policy, our End User License Agreement and our FAQs If there’s still something you’d like to understand better, please reach us at

Thanks for your time and have a great day,

The Strainprint Team
