Breeders’ rights and the preservation of cannabis cultivars – Part 2

Strainly‘s goal is to foster the preservation of cannabis genetics and phenotypes with an inclusive community spirit. Breeding is the manifestation of passion, creativity and hard work. Breeders should find achievement and reward in playing a key role in the conservation and evolution of the plant. Cannabis Intellectual Property is becoming a sensitive topic among breeders.

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!

In this month’s article, Nicholas and Jason share their knowledge about terpenes, their role and connection with cannabinoids.
