Speakers

Matthew Indest, PhD
Technical Director of Agronomy and Plant Improvement
Curaleaf
The ownership of proprietary genetics is soon to become an important differentiator in the industry. Some of the more successful companies in the agriculture space (that is, tobacco, fruit) own their genetics and leave it to local operators to grow. In this presentation, Matthew Indest, PhD, Technical Director of Agronomy and Plant Improvement at Curaleaf, will talk about how companies can turn their focus to developing their seed bank and genetics portfolios. He’ll explain why proprietary genetics are important for flower, but even more necessary on the formulation side. He’ll talk about how unique genetics drive both novel products and business profits.

Nick Des Lauriers

Opus Consulting
Taking a deeper dive into terpenes; Knowing the chemical properties of terpenes and the effects of processing cannabis plant material into downstream products can - and should - play a significant role in how you select your genetics.

Oussama Badad, PhD candidate
Co-founder of Growmics Inc and Lead Geneticist
Trilogene seeds
Oussama's presentation is about the history of cannabis genetics, current varieties today, and what the future holds for cannabis. Cutting edge breeding technologies are changing the way breeders work and there is an exciting road ahead to explore all that cannabis has to offer. By leveraging these genomic tools, we can unleash all the benefits from this plant by harnessing the power of nature.
