Thank you for sharing your story with us, Mary. It's sad when we hear about how regulation makes cannabis inaccessible to those who need it most, but it put a smile on my face to hear how it's helped you make steps towards a healthier life. I can confirm that there are services that take your DNA into consideration, and recommend you a strains. They will send you a swab kit through the mail, which you then mail back. Try searching for "DNA cannabis determine best strain" online, and you should find some.

I have been prescribed medical marijuana by my primary physician.. I have rheumatoid arthritis and PTSD. I use CBD and kratom. MMJ is legal in my state, NJ. However, one must register with the state at a cost of $150.00. Only doctors licensed in MMJ can prescribe it, and they are few and far between, with long waiting lists. Selecting a strain is a hit or miss, and the cost is prohibitive, between $400-1000/month. I am disabled from a spine injury and cannot travel to these doctors. My only income is Social Security. I recently heard there is a new DNA test taken from a swab inside the cheek to determine the appropriate strain for an individual. If they could do this through mail order, that would be wonderful. I am not interested in smoking it, I am 70 years old and have deficits in my hands from RA and spine injury. I would like the edible type. I am on Medicare, which I highly doubt would cover it. I kicked a 20+ year addiction to opioids using CBD and kratom and I believe in using God-given plant medicine.
