Mieko Hester-Perez, Cannabis Science's newest Strategic Advisory Board appointee, released an iOS app geared for autism patients and families today with the full support of Cannabis Science. The Joey Network, which can be downloaded on the iTunes store or at this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-joey-network/id1077881348?mt=8 contains valuable research for alternative autism treatments like cannabis. Mieko initially gained influence as an alternative autism treatment pioneer when she brought the success of her son Joey's cannabis treatment public. Joey has seen great success in reducing his autism symptoms by using cannabis-based treatments. Due to her experience with her son, she has become an expert in such treatment and decided to use her new app as an outlet for her knowledge to benefit others in similar situations.
It can be difficult for autism patients and families to find cutting-edge research and to weed out fact from fiction. The Joey Network app puts the latest research and jargon into simple terms that anyone can understand, and it allows users to interact with one another and with knowledgable moderators when they need support. Following the iOS launch, releases are expected on other major platforms like Android after valuable feedback from patients is collected. This app will benefit Cannabis Science by allowing the company to disseminate its research to more patients, and Cannabis Science's involvement will help Mieko by providing a wider initial audience for testing purposes.
