Cannabis breeder and plant scientist specializing in Horticultural Production doing studies at the University of Minnesota. A life long plant enthusiast trained in traditional North American, Lakota Sioux and Ayurvedic herbal medicine. Herbal medicine utilizes the secondary metabolisms of plants to foster good health. These constituents often amount to terpenes, tannins and specialized secretions, which are produced in most plants as part of a natural process to protect growth in midst of adverse conditions (weather, pests) or promote the next phase of growth (seeding, pollination). Understanding what internal and external mechanisms that drive these processes from seed to flower, is paramount in successful horticultural production.

About the talk

Plant breeding has been practiced for thousands of years for a variety of purposes. Through selective breeding, we can influence many aspects of hemp plants. In particular, breeding can influence cannabinoid concentration, terpene yield and profile, and organoleptic properties like smell and appearance. Selective breeding can also be used to design hybrid cultivars that possess desired properties from different plants, just like dog breeders have attempted with the labradoodle. In this panel, we examine the current reasoning and methodologies behind the breeding of hemp plants, and take a look towards what the future holds for this age-old practice.
