Like humans, cannabis plants have either male or female sex. We employ Y chromosome markers to identify male plants as early as the 4-leaf seedling stage. This conveniently allows for the early removal of males to prevent unwanted pollination within flowering rooms. Only unpollinated (sensimilla) females produce appreciable levels of cannabinoids and terpenes within their flowering bodies. Synthase Genetics offers a mail-in Seedling Sex Determination package, which allows cultivators to send seedling tissue samples for rapid Seedling Sex Determination. Mail in Sex Determination starts after October 18th, 2018. Check back then to order your kit and increase your grow efficiency.
By characterizing and understanding the genetic differences between candidate breeding strains, Synthase Genetics designs specific breeding programs to create new custom strains that possess consistent growth characteristics, specific cannabinoid and terpene content, and reliable medicinal effects. Synthase Genetics uses the understanding of cannabis genetics to create custom medically-relevant cannabis. Contact us to set up an appointment and receive a quote for this custom service.
