Are Terpenes a Younger Sibling or a Superhero?

Key contribution from Nicholas Demski, Staff Writer at Terpenes and Testing Magazine

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?”

GET NOTICED !! Maximizing your visibility with minimum effort

At Strainly, we believe in diversity. We live in a diverse community, we think diversity equals creativity and therefore new possibilities. When it comes to cannabis genetics, diversity of cultivars empowers patients, breeders and growers. This article introduces our solutions and plans to get noticed by the Strainly community…

Properly germinating your cannabis seeds

Key contribution from Radicle Technologies’ team.

Strainly‘s goal is to foster the preservation of cannabis phenotypes, which indeed means, under the form of seeds (or “beans”). Seeds are essential to genetic preservation, and successfully germinating seeds is integral to long term preservation… This month, we are thrilled to have the team at Radicle Technologies, share their knowledge with our members. They’ll try to cover the different ways to germinate your magic beans and explain the Pros and Cons associated with each method, so that you can decide what’s the best option for you…

Strainly‘s goal is to foster the preservation of cannabis phenotypes, which indeed means, under the form of seeds (or “beans”). Seeds are essential to genetic preservation, and keeping your seeds safe and viable is material to preservation success. When it comes to making seeds travel, risks of destruction increase dramatically. In this article, we’ll give you basic guidance about storing and… shipping seeds so that they make it safe to destination

Cloning cannabis: growing weed without seeds

Strainly‘s goal is to foster the preservation of cannabis phenotypes, which sometimes means, under the form of clones (or “cuts”). Clones are incredibly important to the facilitation of genetic preservation, but successfully cloning a cannabis plant requires following a few important steps, that we’ll try to cover in this article. The process of cloning can be a controversial one, as there is a variety of methods you can use. Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, or simply paraphrase the already existing knowledge on the topic, we’ll try to aggregate a handful of the many available sources within this article, thus allowing you to get the basics, do your homework and plan your cloning project a bit before jumping in.

A few options to ship clones

Strainly‘s goal is to foster the preservation of clean cultivars, which sometimes mean, under the form of clones (or “cuts”). Clones are incredibly important to the facilitation of genetic preservation, but providing clones to someone located dozens of miles away (or more!), requires a bit of imagination… It’s not always widely known across the community, but there are different ways of providing clones to a patient or caregiver without necessarily meeting in person. In this article, we’ll describe different options (from the cheap DIY to the purpose-designed container) allowing clones to travel on their own to destination.

Inspecting clones for pests and pathogens

Clones are incredibly important to the facilitation of genetic preservation, but all too often they can also be a source vector for pests and pathogens. Because Strainly‘s goal is to foster the preservation of clean cultivars, we are pleased to have Russell Pace, President of the Cannabis Horticultural Association, share his knowledge with our members in this article. Russell will try to cover the main pests and pathogens you should be aware of and also some symptoms associated with those diseases.
