Study to reveal the health benefits of cannabis products and their relation to sexual health

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 24, 2018) – RISE Life Science Corp. (CSE: RLSC) (formerly Luminor Medical Technologies Inc.) (the “Company” and/or “RISE”) today announced that it has commissioned a longitudinal study to investigate sexual function and health concerns, and, how cannabis products designed for sexual enhancement and health affect sexual behaviors and performance. The RISE Report on Cannabis and Sexual Health and Wellness (the “RISE Study”) will be significant in its long-term open-ended focus, overall scope, and the value of the data it is designed to capture.

Dr. Regina Nelson, a behavioral scientist and one of America’s leading cannabis educators, will lead the study. Dr. Nelson is supported in these efforts by Dr. Christopher J. Smith, a social science expert, and Dr. Jon Ross, a healthcare and public policy expert.

“As cannabis evolves into widespread medical and mainstream commercial use, the benefits of cannabis products and their relation to sexual health are particularly important to every stakeholder, from public health officials to companies making cannabis-based products, and especially for the general consumer.” commented Dr. Nelson, study designer and principal researcher.

“To date, no scholarly investigation of the physiological connection between cannabis and sexual health has ever been undertaken at this scale. This study presents the opportunity to expand our collective knowledge, increase our understanding, and create a critically important data set regarding sexual behaviour, health, and wellness.”

“We are investing in this study because it is central to the ongoing development of consumer products that individuals and couples believe in and actually want to use,” said Anton Mattadeen CEO of RISE Life Science. “The proprietary data generated by this study will not only add necessary information to the subject of sexual health, it will also inform RISE of the best possible product development decisions to meet the needs of our customers, provide us with a competitive advantage in the marketplace, and help us remain right in the middle of this important conversation with our expanding consumer community.”

The Study — Key Facts:

  • Clear Purpose: This is a long-term observational study collecting quantitative and qualitative data, exploring cannabis usage as an aid for sexual performance and collection of experiential data related to the use of RISE sexual health and wellness products;
  • No Gender Bias: We will look at specific differences in effect across genders, as our study will extend beyond heterosexual participants;
  • Real User Experiences: In addition to clinical and statistical data, the RISE Study will collect consumer stories and experiences;
  • Important Observations: The study will focus on many critical areas in need of review:

o    Emotional and physical satisfaction with and without a partnered sexual relationship;
o    Satisfaction with sexual health and function;
o    The importance of sex, sexual function and health to quality-of-life; and
o    How introducing novel cannabis products designed for sexual enhancement and health affect sexual experiences.

  • Usage Mode Profiles: Research will range beyond smoking and vaping and include other important forms of consumption such as oral sprays, oils, concentrates, edibles and topical solutions.
  • Anonymity and Security: Given the topic and increasing privacy concerns, we are protecting personally identifiable information by simply not collecting it at all. This is a strictly anonymous study, with rich profile data and outcomes directly related to cannabis product use.

The study is expected to initially enroll approximately 200 participants during its beta test phase starting in the spring of 2018, with the official study launch tentatively scheduled for September of 2018. As the study continues to expand over time, the long-term goal is to engage with thousands of participants.
