Where and How Hemp is Grown Matters
Seed breeders, hemp growers, and extraction labs all play a critical role in determining a CBD product's quality and efficacy.
Hemp cultivation takes more than planting a seed in the ground and hoping you get cannabinoid-rich plants. Soil, seeds, spacing, and harvest time are just a few factors that will make or break a crop. The quality of the harvest will lead to new cannabinoid and hemp strain discoveries that could reveal medical breakthroughs.
It starts with the seed breeder—the person responsible for composing hemp strains that will target specific therapeutic results when consuming CBD. Cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoid compounds make up the mix, which causes different reactions depending on the combination.
We still have a lot to learn about plant strains and the combinations available to us.
Little research and data exist in the cannabis industry today. But, a small group of universities have come together to change that. Universities are searching for the best growing and extraction practices for maintaining allowed THC levels while producing CBD rich hemp plants that may result in medical cures.
