Emerging Trends in Cannabis Science: Plant Molecular Breeding

September 5, 2019| 2:50 pm - 3:30 pm

Modern genome tools and emerging plant-science methods are revolutionizing cannabis domestication, transforming the industry from backyard grows to predictive breeding and precision agriculture. This session will explore how molecular breeding and plant genomics can create high-performance hybrid cannabis seed varieties to produce plants that are optimized for specific medical, health and wellness applications.

You’ll get insights on:

  • The history, progress and current gaps that exist in precision farming for cannabis.
  • Steps that licensed producers can take toward neutralizing and normalizing the phytochemicals found in cannabis flower.
  • The benefits of heterosis and hybrid-seed technology.
