Did you know hemp is distinct from many other crops in that it’s dioecious, having separate male and female flowers on separate male and female plants. Interested to learn more about hemp genetics?
Check out this informative 30-minute interview — https://youtu.be/yX1_2ar9lCU — with Wendy Mosher, CEO of New West Genetics (www.newwestgenetics.com). Their team of scientists systematically studies the genomes (DNA sequences) of hemp plants to identify traits most valuable for farmers, then tests them in the field to develop custom hemp seeds with multiple cannabinoids and high germination rates. I hosted this lively Zoom interview with Qs from the audience on May 14th.
