Dr. Daniela Vergara – CU Boulder/ Agricultural Genomics Foundation
Daniela will talk about her genomic research on Cannabis, and some of her results. There will also be some talk on “sativa” vs “indica” groupings, which are kinda nonsense according to her findings.
Our results suggest, that because of recombination (the biological process where genes are “shuffled”) traits such as leaf shape, or the plant’s height, have nothing to do with the number of cannabinoids produce. Therefore, you can have a tall plant with broad leaves with high THC or a short plant with narrow leaves and also high THC.
