Both Industrial Hemp and Cannabis can be bred to be more productive and more medicinal. Genomic information can be a helpful tool here. Sequencing of THC, CBD, CBC, and other genes in the cannabinoid and terpene synthesis pathways are be shown to be predictive of Cannabinoid expression and in our understanding of the medicinal components of the plant.
Below is an annotation of Drug and Fiber Strain Genotypes of THC Synthase compared to CBD Synthase from Kojoma et al.
Below one can see many SNPs in this novel strain aligning with genotypes and chemotypes of previously studied cultivar.
