We are a non-profit organization that aims to understand the biology of new and emerging crops with industrial and medical value such as Cannabis and educate the public about the scientific findings. In collaboration with the Cannabis Genomic Research Initiative, we intend to support the farming and medical communities by enhancing the cultivation of these crops in a variety of environments for their use in medicine and industry.
We are forming partnerships with the hemp and marijuana industries and with academic institutions in order to answer basic biological questions about Cannabis currently unknown to science.
Our Research Goals
An Ultra-high density genetic map of Cannabis
History, phylogeny and phylogeography of Cannabis
The hybrid origins of modern Cannabis cultivars
Morphologic differences between Cannabis strains
