MMJ Daily: Cutting Costs and Risk with Tissue Culture Micropropagation

“To date, cultivators have largely been dependent on mother plants to produce clones from cuttings. However, this results in inconsistent harvests with diluted and uncontrollable traits,” says Kevin Brooks, CEO of Conception Nurseries, a cannabis micropropagation lab operating in California and Oregon. The company recognized early on how critical healthy, gen zero clones are to cultivators. “Our plants have consistent yields and grow times, and are pest and disease-free as they are created in lab conditions. In addition, we work to save cultivators money by decreasing their dependency on mother rooms so they can free up valuable, licensed real estate. We want to help growers focus on what they do best: growing.”
