- Each time you use a cannabis product, select your desired goal using Jointly app’s companion tool. Jointly lists the most common goals: relaxation, stress relief, anxiety reduction, improving sleep, recovery, managing pain, enjoying social experiences, focusing, stimulating creativity, escaping, replacing drinking, and enhancing intimacy. You can also select your own “other” goal if those provided don’t suit you. After selecting your goal (you can choose up to 3), you complete your usage report and product rating. You can view your ratings for each product and goal to see which products and brands and methods are working for you consistently, and which are not. As you submit more reports, you return frequently to your in-app Learning Center to discover actions you can take to improve your results, and also to discover products that may be more effective for your goals.
- In a usage report, the Jointly app asks you questions related to your cannabis session, such as your hydration level at time of use, the time you waited between sessions, your diet and the dose you ingested. These are factors that are known or suspected to impact the quality of your cannabis experience. As you submit more reports, themes develop that provide you with helpful guidance on how to improve your experience. A product rating is a component of the usage report. You contribute a product rating to the community when you rate your success at achieving your desired goal(s) for that particular cannabis product and session, on a scale from 1 to 10. Each report you submit on Jointly is a building block. As you lay more blocks into the foundation, the value and usefulness of your own in-app Learning Center grows.
- There are three ways to begin a new report:
- From the home screen, touch “Create Report”
- From any product screen, touch “Begin Report”
- From your Favorites list, select your product and touch “Begin Report”
- To create a report, follow the steps. You record:
- the product you used
- your goals for that session
- how well the product helped you achieve those goals
- and then you record various factors that may impact the quality of your experience, like dose, diet, hydration, and exercise
To get the best results from Jointly, create a report after each session.
- Each report takes less than one minute to complete
- If you wish to delete or change one of your ratings, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make it happen.
- You can view your ratings in the in-app Learning Center by selecting the “Learn” button on Jointly’s home screen. When you arrive in the Learning Center, simply select the “View the products you’ve rated” as well as the desired goal(s) for which you like to view your ratings. Your ratings will be visible via the “My Ratings” tab, beginning with the products that you rated most effective for each of your desired goal(s).
- You can discover actions you can take in the in-app Learning Center. Select the “Learn” button on Jointly’s home screen. When you arrive in the Learning Center, simply select “Discover how to improve your results.” The actions that you can take to improve your cannabis experience are listed in order of their potential impact on your results. You can see how your results are impacted by the time of day, the time you wait between sessions, your level of hunger, hydration, and more. Touch each one to see how that particular factor is impacting your results.
- You can discover how to find your optimal dose in the in-app Learning Center. From your “My Ratings” screen, touch any product you have rated. Then, touch the goal you rated it for. There you can see how your ratings have varied by dose, and also view ratings by dose for other people like you, and for the community in general.
