RYAH Group Inc. (CSE: RYAH) to Deliver Solutions for Clinicians Examining Cannabis Efficacy in Cancer Treatment

  • Multiple ongoing studies are researching the relationship between medical cannabis and cancer treatment
  • The viability of clinical studies within the sector is hampered by lack of exact measurement of a patient’s intake
  • RYAH Group intends to resolve this issue with the launch of it’s proprietary RYAH Smart Dry Herb Inhaler
  • The company successfully delivered on its first Inhaler order in May 2021, and announced that they had received a follow-on order in November 2021

In 1980, The United States National Cancer Institute (“NCI”) began experimental distribution of a novel drug called Marinol, an oral form of THC (the primary active ingredient in cannabis), to cancer patients in San Francisco ( Just over a decade later, the city of San Francisco celebrated the passing of Proposition P in 1991, a revolutionary bill that legalized the use of medical cannabis within the city limits. There’s an abundance of evidence supporting the use of medical cannabis to treat cancer symptoms. Now, rather than just treating symptoms, science has begun to ask, “could cannabis be used to treat cancer itself”? 

A recognized leader in volume management technology for plant-based medicine, RYAH Group (CSE: RYAH) is in the middle of the action. RYAH develops innovative IoT products that capture powerful data insights and is on a mission to to transform patient care using big data and AI to reshape understanding and uses of plant-based medicines. The company’s robust artificial intelligence platform aggregates and correlates HIPAA-compliant patient data, which then helps doctors and patients personalize plant-based treatments to better predict treatment outcomes. Little wonder that RYAH devices and data are being used by a rapidly growing number of participants in plant-based clinical trials around the world.

While clinical research into the relationship between medical cannabis consumption and cancer treatment is in the very early stages, initial studies have shown that THC and other cannabinoids bind to the endocannabinoid receptors on cancer cells, thereby interrupting the cell’s ability to signal. With limited intracellular signals, the studies have witnessed increased cancer cell apoptosis, reduced proliferation, migration, and metastasis (

Two key constraints that have limited the viability of cannabis studies within an oncological setting are the highly variable nature of the cannabis plant and traditional methods of cannabis consumption that make patient intake challenging to measure. 

The RYAH Group intends to resolve this issue with the launch of their proprietary RYAH Smart Dry Herb Inhaler. The product is the first dry-herb inhaler that tracks and controls how much is inhaled, providing consistent and predictable results. The inhaler connects with the RYAH Health App, which features stat-tracking and presets for temperatures and measurements, all of which can be customized to individual needs and doctor recommendations. Moreover, the device also permits a post-session review mechanism that collects session data, an essential requirement for any clinical study.

In June 2021, the RYAH Group announced that it had completed its first shipment of RYAH Smart Dry Herb Inhalers, which included delivery of approximately 10,000 RYAH Cartridges and QR codes, to an international clinic undertaking one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive clinical trials in plant-based medicine ( In early November, the company announced that it had received a separate, follow-on order for its proprietary Inhaler product from the same company (

While it is far too early for patients to forego traditional oncological treatments in favor of standalone medical cannabis therapy, clinical trials worldwide seek to discern the relationship between medical cannabis consumption and cancer treatment. 

While the trials currently lie at a relatively nascent stage, RYAH Group and its diverse and proprietary volume control and management device portfolio are playing their part in what may, one day, turn out to be a genuinely revolutionary medical breakthrough.
