About the talk

The cannabis industry is rife with marketing and branding jargon that might be chic, but these names don't really convey much information. Knowing the genotype of your plants, however, can ensure accurate representation of the cultivar to downstream purchasers, like manufactures and consumers. Whether you're looking to confirm purchased harvest, cultivate a new hybrid, or enhance an existing variety, genetics can provide integral answers.
