Jon Frank is a Soil Doctor. Through soil testing and fertility consultations he fixes soil to help growers achieve nutrient dense food. The same approach to growing nutrient dense foods applies to cannabis. If you meet natures’ requirements for quality, you get a greater potency and spectrum of plant terpenes and cannabinoids. Jon is the owner of International Ag Labs and an experienced product formulator/manufacturer of specialty products selling into the gardening, farming, and cannabis markets.View the profile
Cannabis breeder and plant scientist specializing in Horticultural Production doing studies at the University of Minnesota. A life long plant enthusiast trained in traditional North American, Lakota Sioux and Ayurvedic herbal medicine. Herbal medicine utilizes the secondary metabolisms of plants to foster good health. These constituents often amount to terpenes, tannins and specialized secretions, which are produced in most plants as part of a natural process to protect growth in midst of adverse conditions (weather, pests) or promote the next phase of growth (seeding, pollination). Understanding what internal and external mechanisms that drive these processes from seed to flower, is paramount in successful horticultural production.View the profile
