Challenges Receiving Strainprint Notification on Samsung S8 / S8+

Samsung has made some changes to the Android operating system on Samsung S8/ S8+ devices that can disrupt notifications within the Strainprint application. This is easy to resolve by following the steps below.

  1. From the home screen of your phone find the Messages app
  2. Click and hold the Messaging app icon until a dialogue box appears above the icon saying “App Info”. Select “App Info”
  3. Scroll down to App Settings and select “Notifications”
  4. Make sure that “Allow Notifications” is enabled
  5. Close the App Info page. You are now setup with notifications
  6. Relaunch Strainprint
How do I add a new strain?

Under ‘Strains’, tap on ‘All Strains’. You will see a grey bar that says, “Can’t find your strain? Add it here.” Once added, this strain will be available exclusively to you but not to the general Strainprint community.

I can’t complete a session.

Go to the ‘Profile’ section, tap ‘Logout’ and close the App. Then reopen the App and sign back in. This will reset the App and enable you to complete your session. All of your previous data will be preserved.

I forgot to input my User or Activation Code when signing up. How can I get the bonus points?

I redeemed for an item, but haven’t received it yet.

My Strainpoints total does not accurately reflect all of the sessions that I’ve recorded.

Strainpoints are only awarded for a maximum of 12 sessions per day. However, you can log as many sessions as you wish.

The App is ‘crashing’ on my device.

Go to the ‘Profile’ section, tap on ‘Logout’ and close the App. Then reopen the App and sign back in. This will most often correct the issue.

How does Strainprint prevent “gaming” and protect validity of the data?

Strainprint has over 20 data algorithms that analyze the data set in real time to eliminate gaming and inappropriate tracking behaviour that would skew results. For example, we gauge annonymous behavioral cues and trends to assess validity of treatment regimens – based on overall sample group behavior. These are smart learning adaptive filtering algorithms. If any one of these data policies is triggered, then the record is removed from the dataset.

How fast can I be up and running with Strainprint?

Base License subscriptions can be live within 48 hours. White-label License subscriptions can be live within 3 weeks (subject to customer availability).

How is Strainprint Data Collected?

What is a “session”?

A session is a medical record of a patient’s state just before or as they medicate compared to their state and emotive effect after an on-set period. The on-set period is based on the chosen ingestion method (eg. 20 minutes for smoke/vape or 1 hour for edibles). A session is only complete after all data is input. Patients must complete their last session before starting a new one. Incomplete (stale) sessions are purged after 36 hours.

Why does the data show ingestion methods not approved in my jurisdiction?

Strainprint does not endorse any ingestion method. Although certain jurisdiction allow for limited ingestion methods, some patients do in fact use methods that are approved and some that aren’t. Strainprint simply provides a useful means for real patients to track ALL of their use from lab-verified strains and products. This is beneficial for all Strainprint users and subscribers.
