During Day 1 of Dumb Question Amnesty Week, we asked submitted and live questions to cannabis geneticist, Anna Schwabe, PhD, about hemp genetics. Many myths were debunked, terminology was clarified, and questions about seeds and cloning were answered. 

Behind-the-scenes episode 36 is now available, featuring plant geneticist and Cannabis researcher, Anna Schwabe PhD!

Anna's PhD work focused on understanding the sources of variation among Cannabis plants. Why do they look different, smell different, etc? And can people actually distinguish these differences organoleptically through smell, sight and taste?

 

Our conversation explored the insights she gained during her research including why she is not ready to retire the indica/sativa vernacular. We also discuss the need of scientists to find better ways to communicate with the public that respects anecdotal reports and experiences while maintaining a critical pursuit of truth.

I hope you enjoy this conversation and I look forward to following up with Anna for more conversations in the future, as this conversation raised many questions and other topics that beg to be explored.

TEE: THIRD EYE EXPERIENCE

Abhi and Anna discuss science, education and Cannabis through a series of relatively short stories

I had the pleasure of chatting with my friend and colleague, Dr. Jonny Lisano about my research on cannabis genetics. We talked about a whole bunch of stuff from genetic consistency and strain classification to potency labeling and testing discrepancies. As Jonny said, we left no stone left unturned...Listen now!
