VANCOUVER (PRWEB) July 18, 2019
Canadian entrepreneur Dr. Tyler Wish and National Access Cannabis Corp. (“NAC”) (TSXV: META) today announced the official launch of NACBio (“NACBio” or the “Company”), a cannabis intelligence company that is committed to becoming the gold-standard for real world cannabis insights.
The Company’s intelligence platform is utilizing modern data intelligence capabilities and information derived from large cohorts of cannabis users to provide cannabis product companies with data-driven insights for product development; and to offer cannabis retailers, medical providers, and consumers with evidence-based recommendations for selecting the best products.
Tyler Wish, CEO of NACBio commented, “One of the core challenges faced by both cannabis product companies and consumers today is a lack of precision and consistency in the product/customer experience. Variation in human biology, cannabis products, and consumer preferences can lead to a wide range of end-user experiences. We have assembled the NACBio intelligence platform to empower the next generation of cannabis innovation by enabling industry and consumers to gain a much deeper and data-driven understanding of the relationship between cannabis, human biology, and outcomes. In addition to our strategic relationship with NAC, we are in active discussions with other leading cannabis companies to form an industry intelligence consortium, to both contribute to, and benefit from NACBio’s intelligence platform.”
"Today we celebrate the public launch of NAC Bio Inc., a data intelligence company dedicated to supporting the commercialization of next-generation cannabis products to better meet the needs of patients and consumers," said Mark Goliger, CEO of NAC. “With 30 currently licensed locations in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, NAC has successfully assisted tens of thousands of Canadians with secure, safe and responsible access to legal recreational cannabis in Canada.”
“Under Dr. Tyler Wish's guidance, NACBio will utilize cutting-edge technologies and approaches from the domains of data-science, genomics and digital health to better understand how cannabis works and is used by patients and customers in the real world, leveraging NAC’s robust and growing data set as well as information from several cannabis industry partners throughout the value chain. Over time, the NACBio intelligence platform, is expected to both enhance outcomes for patients and consumers while providing NAC and its partners with critical market insights that provide a competitive advantage, empower innovation, and drive future growth.”
