We know that our endocannabinoid system plays an incredibly important role in how cannabinoids in cannabis products affect us. But until recently, this idea became more than a fantasy. For years experts have been saying that there should be a way to intricately determine the ideal cannabis strain for each person based on their genetics, and that dream has now become a reality.

Is this for real?

Yes, this is very much a real product that is widely available to the general public, thanks to geneticists and researchers at Endocanna Health. It utilizes each person's DNA footprint to determine with precision which cannabinoid ratios and terpene profiles would be most suitable, and it does all of this with only a small sample of saliva.

How it works

Endocanna Health offers a DNA test kit that can uncover variations in your genetics and match them with perfectly dosed formulations. They can help consumers achieve better outcomes. To begin, you’ll need to order a DNA test kit, and it can take a bit to arrive, but the wait is worth it. Once you receive your kit, all you need to do is log in to your online profile, and take a swab of your saliva. When you’re done, just neatly cap the sample before sending it off to the lab to be tested.


The cost of this DNA test kit depends on what all you have to start with. As an entire package and sample, the test is priced at $199 plus applicable taxes, but if you already have DNA data that can be accessed by Endocanna Health, then you can qualify to receive all of the benefits that we’ve mentioned and then some, for a super affordable $49.95. There is no need to pay for postage, as a pre-paid envelope is part of the deal, so there are no hidden fees or subscriptions that you need to worry about.

What you’ll learn


This DNA test kit can determine the best strains of weed for each individual, and each user upon completion of their genetics test, will receive a complete profile report fill of suggestions that are broken down into several different categories, including:

  • THC side effects
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep
  • Cognitive function
  • Behavior
  • Sleep
  • Digestive
  • Immune system
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Pain, nausea, and neurologic
  • Drug dependency
  • Mood
  • Drug metabolism
  • Fitness
  • Metabolism

So basically, the profile includes all of the information that you’ll need to make an informed decision regarding the perfect strains of weed and cannabis products that might help you to manage issues in your day to day life.

Is it worth it?

Though there is still some debate over the effectiveness of this DNA test kit. However, those who have used it have nothing but great things to say about their experience, and that’s a pretty good indication in what Endocanna Health is doing. It truly seems to work, and the overall price is relatively affordable for the average cannabis consumer, but that’s not all.

This DNA test kit is for life, which means that you only have to take it once to get a birds-eye view into how your body interacts with various elements in cannabis, and that’s pretty amazing. It might not tell us everything that we’d like to know about this wonderful plant, but even if all it does is making picking strains of weed easier, then we’re pretty certain that this fantastic product is more than worth it.
