The first medical application for cannabis traceability
Uruguay Can Launches The World's First Medical Cannabis Traceability Application Using Blockchain Storage Technology In Partnership With æternity blockchain. The platform makes it possible to map the entire production chain, but also the climatic conditions in which the plant was cultivated and all the stages up to its packaging.
Why is product traceability important?
“This transparency in the field of medical cannabis is a priority because of the obstacles to its export. The main problem is that the amount of cannabinoids the plant needs to have must be stable. Cannabis is a very unstable plant in the sense that, depending on how it was treated during cultivation, it produces a different amount of cannabinoids and therefore its effect is variable in each case.Ms. Sanguinetti, public relations director of æternity global in her interview El Paiss
The concentration of cannabinoids is what makes the product or not to give certain results. The user will be able to access this technology as if it were any other mobile application; however, the creators of the platform qualify it as different from any other application.
Uruguay Can creates a foolproof solution. Documenting the production process in the production line has an unprecedented advantage because it cannot be changed. The developers claim that it is impossible for anyone to hack the system to obtain or modify information. The firm has made an allegory of it. “It remains as tattooed, replicated, encrypted in several places at the same time, unlike centralized mechanisms. This is one of the most important variables in the project. The security offered by traceability will serve to strengthen investor confidence.
The development of this technology was carried out by the Uruguayan company Inmind, who worked on the project for eight months. The tracing system will be deployed from June to July, just in time for the cannabis planting phase in the region. The platform is open source and can be reprogrammed to be applicable to any other culture. Developers just need to adjust the settings to suit the specific strain.
