About the talk

The cannabis industry is currently facing a land grab for intellectual property surrounding prized cannabis varietals. The process of going through the patent office can be both time consuming and costly and there is no guarantee a patent will issue unless what is submitted is truly novel. Furthermore, the illegality of cannabis in many countries and lack of knowledge in this arena for patent examiners only further compounds this complex issue. In the absence of a clear path for obtaining IP surrounding cannabis cultivars alternative approaches are gaining momentum. This presentation will discuss one such alternative method for protecting the work of cannabis breeders that utilizes a combination of DNA sequencing and blockchain technology as a mechanism for demonstrating prior art.

Thank you for the intro Adam and thank you Concentration 2019 and Terpenes and Testing for having me to discuss and what I feel is a really important topic today. I'm going to be discussing the intersection of two different subjects here that seemingly unrelated blockchain technology and genetics and how using these two we can protect your cannabis intellectual property for the do whoop. This is a little fast right and disclosure. I'm a cannabis scientist. I have not a lot expert nor am I a patent attorney

So please if you are interested in learning more about the laws surrounding intellectual property, please consult the appropriate Authority because I am not one and secondly, medicinal genomics Doug cell DNA sequencing service called strain to seek, and the service is used by cultivators to get genetic insights about the cultivar as well as serve as a defense mechanism for overeating pads by demonstrating prior art Oh man, that's a thing. Is that a little finicky? Sorry about that so I can start off with a definition of intellectual property. So the world intellectual property

organization defines IP of creation of the Mind desert inventions artistic Works images things like trademarks that are used in Commerce is protected by law. So that's why it's helpful when you are a Creator or inventor of something to file for this IP it because this way you can get financial recognition or recognition or financial benefit from what you've created and when we strike the right balance between innovators and a creator and
