Major Cannabinoid Genotyping
Cannabinoid Genotype Test
A New Revolution In Hemp Genetics Is Here
Want to know which of the primary cannabinoids will be the dominant one produced in your plants? Well, now you can. This test enables you to identify whether a plant contains the genes required to produce CBD, THC and even CBG months before you’d be able to determine the phenotype using potency testing. Yes. You no longer need to wait months to determine the dominant cannabinoid in your plants. Cannabinoid Genotype Testing is an essential time saving tool during early stages of plant growth. It increases the cost-efficiency of growing from seed and helps you more effectively manage your crop space. Cut to the chase and determine the phenotype of your plants long before they’re detectable by eye.
Breeding projects for high CBD varieties (parent and F2 identification)

Pheno-hunts using seeds with unknown cannabinoid dominance
Validation of seed and/or clone lots from a new supplier
Major Cannabinoid Genotype Testing can identify the following types of hemp plants (see graph below):
Type I (Bt/Bt) - Predominantly THC expressing
Type II (Bt/Bd) - Mixed THC/CBD co-expressing
Type III (Bd/Bd) - Predominantly CBD expressing
CBG Dominant Plants (B0/B0) - Predominantly CBG expressing, with minor potential for CBD

Primary Cannabinoid Biosynthesis
However, using a simple genetic marker test we can identify which of these enzymes is present in each of your plants. Additionally, we can also track genetic markers associated with high CBG production depending on the exact parental combinations and goals for your breeding project.
Predictive Power of The B-Locus
Genotype to phenotype relationships. (a) Total potential tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) concentration (% dry mass) in individual plants for which B locus genotype was also determined. The red line indicates 0.3% total potential THC (b) Δ9‐THC concentration by genotype. The red line indicates 0.3% dry weight Δ9‐THC. (c) Total potential THC concentration by genotype. The red line indicates 0.3% dry weight total potential THC. (d) Total potential CBD:THC concentration ratio. All means differ (ANOVA p < 1e‐4).
