The StrainSEEK™ cannabis and hemp strain identification and registration service is the first and only genetics based service to reliably identify cannabis and hemp strains. The StrainSEEK service uses NextGen DNA sequencing and other innovations originally developed by the Medicinal Genomics team for the Human Genome Project. By mapping the unique genetic identity of each strain, growers as well as patients and consumers will have a reliable registration source that accurately identifies plants and their key characteristics.
The Benefits of Registering Your Strain’s Genetics
Command Premium Pricing for Your Strain
A survey of cannabis patients and adult consumers found that nearly half of respondents are willing to pay more for products made with premium strains of marijuana. Cannabis strains that have been genetically sequenced using the StrainSEEK™ Identification and Registration Service can demonstrate a level of confidence and reliability to consumers that can command premium pricing.
Provide Additional Information to Your Comsumers
Each strain you identify and register using the StrainSEEK service will have a unique webpage on Kannapedia.net, which lists the strain’s key characteristics (cannabinoids, terpenoids, etc.) and genetic relationship to other registered strains. A QR code that links to your strain’s Kannapedia page can be used at the point of sale as a way for consumers to access additional information about your strain.
Protect Your Strain from Competition and Corporations
We provide growers with documentation that can be used to protect strains from corporations that may file genetic patents in the future and competitors who may claim to have your strain. We do this by publishing your strain’s unique genetic ID to a disaster-proof web database to establish a timestamped ownership record.
Optimize Your Growing and Breeding Operations
You will receive a genetic report that contains important information about your strain, including its genetic health and closest genetic relatives. Additionally, associations will be made between genetic variations and plant characteristics, allowing you and other cannabis growers to selectively breed plants for certain physical and chemical characteristics.
