Apple to allow cannabis-related apps in its App Store

Usage of apps for assisting with medicinal cannabis now possible on iPhones

Apple has recently made a decision to allow cannabis-centred apps on the app store.

The new policy states that “licensed and otherwise legal cannabis dispensaries” are now able to work with Apple.

This decision will potentially have an impact on the doctor-patient relationship, assisting doctors in finding the right dosages, as well as tracking effects and adverse events.

A number of studies have examined the current landscape of mobile applications used for medical purposes.

While Apple’s decision signals incremental acceptance, apps for medical purposes need to adhere to high standards to earn the trust of healthcare professionals and patients alike.
