Tikun-Olam Cannabis Israeli firm asserted that it has created CGF, cannabis fingerprinting technology, a program that can track and identify marijuana strains according to their genetic structure.
The organization added that the CGF program focuses on setting a parameter in regards to strain identification; thus, boosting the genetic stability and minimizing deviation ranges in marijuana crops’ active ingredients.
Tikun –Olam also said that the program may trigger the improvement in the protocol of registering marijuana varieties, offering more protection of intellectual property rights. That would assist legislators around the planet who’ve struggled with matters such as breeder’s branding, patents and rights. It pointed out the CGF program will play a crucial role in seed bank management.
The Israeli also said that the system enables farmers to characterize marijuana DNA via plucked leaves without disturbing the plant. It can assist producers to keep stable cannabis operations through identifying contaminated genetics, thanks to its three-year development.
It further asserted that the system has tested thousands of crops since it’s development.
The company disclosed that the program diagnoses various distinct sequences and plant’s genome according to several subsequent genetic technologies which are part of the plant throughout its life cycle. To get a genetic cannabis fingerprint, producers need to submit leaves to a CGF-equipped facility for analysis.
Geneticist Shalmon Assaf, the system’s developer, said CGF is the cannabis world’s holy grail and regards it as the exclusive and only standard that independently and completely characterizes every weed strain. The Plant Metabolism Lab at MIGAL Galilee Research Institute offered technical aid during CGF’s development.
Currently, marijuana’s crop identity is determined according to biological standards such as plant color, rod diameter, height, profiles of active substance components and other characteristics. However, aspects such as fertilizers, growing methods and lighting can influence several plant components.
