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 Breeding – Part 3”
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.

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.

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?”
