Putting breeders in control is a core element of our DNA. In this article, we’ll try to explain the various distribution approaches breeders can take, and explore how Strainly can help them.Read more “How seeds make their way from breeders to growers?”
You now know how and why canna-biodiversity is at stake. In our Breeder’s Rights and the Preservation of Cannabis trilogy, we exposed the mechanisms potentially threatening this biodiversity and introduced alternative concepts, such as open source. In Open Source Breeding – Part 2, we gave you some options to start open sourcing your genetics. We have done our best to gather information and initiate a movement. Now, it’s your turn to make change happen…Read more “Open Source Cannabis Breeding – Part 3”
In case you had missed it, Strainly allows you to offer genetics under the form of tissue cultures. While seeds and clones have been quite common starting material among growers, micro propagation is usually less familiar. Fortunately, William Roberts, Researcher / Agronomist at Dark Heart Nursery, is sharing his knowledge with us in this article. William has been with Dark Heart Nursery for 7 years and tissue culturing cannabis since 2014! Happy reading…Read more “Cannabis Tissue Culture: Present and Future”
Canna-biodiversity is a very important cause if you ask us at Strainly. In our Breeder’s Rights and the Preservation of Cannabis trilogy, we exposed the mechanisms potentially threatening this biodiversity and introduced alternative concepts, such as open source. In Open Source Breeding – Part 1, we explained the principles of collaborative economy and open innovation through copyleft. In this article we’ll give you tools to apply the theory.
Do we need to remind you? Our goal at Strainly is to foster the preservation of cannabis genetics and phenotypes with an inclusive community spirit. In our Breeder’s Rights and the Preservation of Cannabis trilogy, we exposed the mechanisms potentially threatening cannabis biodiversity and started exploring alternative approaches. In this article we’ll get even more concrete about the ways to prevent corporate takeover from happening.
When we designed Strainly, a key functionality that quickly appeared as a “must have” was to allow users to search cultivars based on cannabinoids… AND terpenes! While most people usually focus on THC… and CBD concentrations, there are other components in cannabis. As Nicholas and Jason from the editorial team at Terpenes and Testing Magazine would put, “there is a certain discrepancy between terpenes’ notoriety and usefulness”. In this month’s article, Nicholas and Jason share their knowledge about terpenes, their role and connection with cannabinoids. Hopefully, you’ll learn a few things about terpenes and pay attention to them when hunting cultivars on Strainly… Read more “Are Terpenes a Younger Sibling or a Superhero?”
Being a social platform and a community is by definition inclusive. Strainly serves all growers and breeders complying with their local regulations. Indeed Cannabis Licensed Producers are part of this community. This article is an ode to OLCC and i502 producers.
