The Science of Cannabis: The Genetics of Cannabis Breeds

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday February 8

6:00 PM  –  7:30 PM

There is a rich informal taxonomy of Cannabis strains with exotic and evocative names.  How do these breeds reflect the genetic relationships among different strains, and how do those genetic relationships reflect the chemical properties of the specific plants?  This is critical information for the commercialization of cannabis, and there is an active private sector investigation into the murky genetics of cannabis.
