Cannabis Germplasm 101: Panel Discussion

Ellis Smith, with American Cannabis Company, and Dr. Mitch Day, Scientist and Entrepreneur, hosted a panel of experts to discuss germplasm and micropropagation within the cannabis industry.

As a renowned subject matter expert on micropropagation and genetic analysis, Dr. Mitch Day knows there’s an unsolved problem in the cannabis industry: a significant lack of public germplasm repositories. Day believes cultivators can benefit from micropropagation with disease-resistant cloning and large-scale cultivar storage for advanced breeding programs. In this webcast, Day discusses the benefits, challenges, and importance of germplasm with cannabis industry experts Dylan Wilks, founder and CTO of Orange Photonics, as well as Dr. Max Jones, Assistant Professor at the University of Guelph, Gosling Research Institute for Plant Preservation.
