The Right Autoclave for Tissue Culture Cannabis Production

Tissue culture cannabis micropropagation seems like nothing but win-win-win: Higher productivity (and thus greater profits) in a smaller space with more reliable genetics and heartier plants.  This time lapse video shows three days of tissue culture cannabis growth in the lab: The catch?  In order to get those reliable genetics you need “pharmaceutical-grade cleanliness,” a true … Continue reading “The Right Autoclave for Tissue Culture Cannabis Production”

Tissue Culture Cannabis Propagation Yields True Genetic Clones

As we’ve noted, medical and recreational cannabis suppliers who embrace tissue culture cannabis propagation methods enjoy some stunning operational advantages.  Easily the most significant of these: genetics. Reliable Genetics with Tissue Culture Cannabis Standard plant cloning techniques—while tried and true—are highly susceptible to mutation and genetic drift.  As such, each clone isn’t really necessarily genetically … Continue reading “Tissue Culture Cannabis Propagation Yields True Genetic Clones”

Five Reasons to Consider Tissue Culture Cannabis Production
