With oddly random strain nomenclature such as “Trainwreck, Pineapple Express, AK-47, Chemdawg, and Black Mamba,” all of which are likely to be found on many shelves across the nation, medical and recreational smokers are both hopeful that a new cannabis genome project will bring about a larger understanding of the genetics put away in today’s cannabis strains.
From California to Colorado … Washington to Oregon, the descriptive labels on medical cannabis’s plastic bottles are usually seriously misrepresenting the strain they contain. As the thought of medical cannabis becomes more widely accepted and would-be politicians search for votes within the reform movement, the confusing parameters of today’s naming conventions are leaving many consumers not knowing what they are getting. This results in “Indica-dominant hybrids being labeled as Sativa-dominant strains and vice versa.”
As most in our world are as of now mindful of, there are three particular species inside of the cannabis family – Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis. Be that as it may, on account of the modern hybridization process of crossbreeding distinctive strains for their particular impacts or phenotypes, the strain’s definitive name is all the more frequently taking into account its potential for showcasing than its particular hereditary qualities. In any case, that is about to change on account of Mowgli Holmes, a microbiologist at Columbia University who will endeavor to outline whole cannabis genome.
“Once his DNA map is complete, it will give growers a better way to understand their horticulture and consumers a better way to understand their product,” Newsweek’s Winston Ross states.
With a specific end goal to finish this huge assignment, Holmes’ entangled and tedious examination will include investigating tests of cannabis accumulated from around the world and all through history. With more than 1,500 of the 2,000 gathered cannabis tests already in the system that plots out cannabis DNA, consumers and cultivators alike will soon have a vastly improved comprehension of what they’re inhaling and developing.
