Frontiers in Cannabis Genetic Testing and Microbial Safety: What On Earth Does This Have To Do With Bitcoin?

Friday September 7th
5:20 PM - 5:45 PM - Peller Estates Ballroom A
Speakers: Kevin McKernan


Cannabis microbiome sequencing has revealed interesting insights into microbial testing regulations. Cannabis endophytes and endofungal bacteria present serious challenges to culture based assessments of microbial risks and more accurate DNA based methods are required to limit clinical liability. To get a complete picture of the cannabis microbiome, we also constructed the most comprehensive Cannabis genome assembly. A blockchain based cannabis genetic registry for more immutable and transparent cannabis safety data tracking will be discussed.
