In a recent episode of the Shaping Fire podcast, host Shango Los sat down with Seth Crawford, Ph.D. to discuss his blooming seed business, Oregon CBD. Their goal was to disrupt the hemp extract market by breeding CBD-rich plants derived from medicinal cannabis plants that would replace the low-cannabinoid, low-terpene producing fibrous hemp plants that were being used to make extracts. Through intelligent breeding and use of innovative tools, such as the Medicinal Genomics youPCR™ Plant Screening Platform, Crawford and OregonCBD have been able to do just that.
Very cool! Sometimes you’ve just got to force the change!
