  • Publication number: 20200202409
    Abstract: A system for categorizing, visualizing, and recommending cannabis products based on objective data of the chemical composition of products is described. This system allows cannabis products to be visualized and compared based on their chemical composition, even by laypeople with little or no knowledge of the underlying objective data. A recommendation system is built upon this which can recommend products for consumption, including a user interface for receiving user input, which includes at least one of demographic data, desired level of psychoactivity, or prior experience with the product, a merchant interface for receiving merchant input, including at least one of general data descriptive of the regulated product, lab data descriptive of the regulated products chemical composition, and user data descriptive of subjective effects of the regulated product on a user; and a decision engine making a recommendation of product according to correlation of the lab data with the user data.

  • Patent number: 10657118
    Abstract: An update basis for updating digital content in a digital medium environment is described. The digital content is updated by incorporating new digital content components from a service provider system, such as a stock content service, to keep the digital content from seeming stale to client device users. The service provider system controls provision of digital content components according to an update basis described in a component request. In part, component requests ask that the service provider system provide digital content components for incorporation with digital content. Component requests also describe a timing basis with which digital content components are to be provided as updates. By way of example, the timing basis may correspond to a time interval (e.g., daily, weekly, monthly, seasonally, times of day, and so on), receiving user input in relation to the digital content (e.g., a navigation input to a web page), and so forth.
