This will be a purely clinical talk because all the potheads will still be in bed at this hour. ;-) “Breeding for a budding industry” by Greg Baute
Cannabis has been medically legal in Canada for some time and will soon be legal for everyone. There’s a lot of investment in modern greenhouses to grow product. #NAPB2018
Canada is well-positioned to lead on the research and development side. @anandialabs has a certified chem lab for testing. #NAPB2018
Cannabis is probably one of humanity’s earliest domesticated plants. It’s used for its oil seeds, fiber, and medicinally. (Not to mention recreationally. - ed) #NAPB2018
The fiber type is bred for long, straight fibrous growth while the drug type is grown under a bewildering variety of conditions. Trichome growth is encouraged. #NAPB2018
.@AnandiaLabs has gone to great lengths to import Cannabis germplasm to jumpstart legal breeding efforts. #NAPB2018 Chart showing the VOC profiles of various cannabis varieties.
With most crops we have at least 100 years of rigorous scientific breeding. With Cannabis, breeding efforts have been.....different. #NAPB2018 4 YouTube screens of homemade pot breeding videos
The Cannabis genome assembly is reasonably good.

(There are monecious populations of hemp type.) #NAPB2018
The term “strains” is used rather than “varieties” and he thinks it’s accurate.

Indica is “in da couch”. #NAPB2018
Cannabis seeds go for around $15 a seed right now. #NAPB2018
On the one hand, the Cannabis breeding community publishes pedigrees for their strains. On the other hand, they’re not always accurate or illuminating. #NAPB2018
Growers are sharing clones, labeling isn’t always accurate. You’re often just one cross away from a given strain. #NAPB2018
Because of these breeding practices, the consumer can’t ensure they always get the same product under a given name. @AnandiaLabs is professionalizing the breeding. They’ve got a large facility on Vancouver Island & are building their team. #NAPB2018
