Newly Public RYAH Medtech Sets Table for Expansion

App, Exclusive, News, Top Story
RYAH Group, Inc. (CSE: RYAH) and its wholly owned subsidiary RYAH Medtech Inc. began trading publicly May 10, 2021 on the Canadian Securities Exchange. The reverse takeover was nearly two years in the making, bringing RYAH’s suite of smart cannabis and plant-based medicine devices (and the accompanying treasure trove of data) to the public markets for the first time.
If there is one thing everyone involved with medical cannabis needs, it’s more data. Solid, factual information from the real world of cannabis treatment will go a long way toward standardizing and documenting what is currently a largely squishy and anecdotal environment. Doctors in location A don’t really know what doctors in location B are discovering. Medical professionals rely on very occasional reports from patients on their experiences using cannabis treatments, and reliable information almost never makes it back to scientists and companies responsible for formulating products.
RYAH is looking to change all of that by creating a feedback loop that provides information to all stakeholders in the world of plant-based medicines. It starts with connected dose-measuring delivery devices like inhalers and vape pens, continues through the RYAH Cloud engine where data is analyzed and parsed, finally informing research, development, and treatment decisions. Let’s take a closer look at the RYAH Medtech business model and see what it has to offer.
Data Feeds the Science of Plant-Based Medicines
Without rigorous scientific examination and experimentation, plant-based medicines in general and cannabis-based medicines in particular have been somewhat relegated to the back rooms patrolled by herbal shamans offering elixirs based on anecdotal evidence of reported success. The industry needs to replace ‘My cousin swears by it!’ with ‘Research indicates…’ To be sure, that research is happening at an ever-increasing pace, with regulations loosening around the globe and capital flowing into the industry.
Still, there are millions of people who rely on cannabis-derived medicine to treat indications as diverse as PTSD, chronic pain, inflammation, seizures, and sleep disorders. These people are often operating in the dark, trying different strains to find just the right mix without much in the way of medical guidance and adjusting dosages without really knowing why or how. Unbeknownst to these patients, individually or as a group, they actually hold the key to figuring out the complicated puzzle of cannabis medicine. The answer lies in gathering their experiences and unifying them into a dataset that is as large as possible so that trends can be identified, treatments can be evaluated, and conclusions can be made and tested.
RYAH has developed one of the world’s largest databases of medical cannabis session information to provide just such a repository of information. The company has also developed a suite of interconnected delivery devices, including patches, inhalers, and pens, to feed even more data into the system. RYAH’s Cloud engine constantly churns the data, producing digestible and actionable information to researchers, cannabis producers, product designers, medical professionals, and patients themselves. The whole ecosystem is designed to maximize the effectiveness of current treatments while enabling the efficient development of the next generation of plant-based medicinal products.
Expansion on Tap
RYAH recently announced a definitive wholesale supply and distribution agreement with Medical Kiwi Ltd., a leading medical cannabis company in New Zealand. Beyond selling and distributing RYAH products throughout the country, the agreement allows the two companies to explore medical device registration there for RYAH’s proprietary delivery devices. If that comes to pass, it would be the first such device registered for medical use in New Zealand.
“Our new partnership with Medical Kiwi Ltd in New Zealand further expands our global clinical and distribution network for plant-based medicine and digital patient care,” said Gregory Wagner, CEO of RYAH Group Inc. and of RYAH Medtech, Inc. “In December 2019, the New Zealand Government passed legislation to improve access to medical cannabis products. Our new relationship with Medical Kiwi presents an opportunity for both parties to drive innovation and to deliver cutting edge plant-based medical solutions in New Zealand.“
Deals such as this are the prototype for RYAH’s growth potential to become a reality. Whether it’s distributors in a new market, research organizations such as universities and pharma companies, or medical cannabis collectives and treatment centers, the reliability of RYAH’s delivery devices combined with the access to large datasets should be of interest to a wide range of potential clients.
With the new public listing, RYAH’s expansion may be picking up steam. Focusing on distribution and clinical trials in European and US markets, along with moves into new markets like the New Zealand arrangement, will go a long way toward growing both the size of the dataset and the company’s top line. The access to public capital markets along with the transparency and validation provided by the pubco listing should only help in RYAH’s quest to inform and advance the plant-based medical community.
