High Grade Hemp Seed, in partnership with Swiss Cannabinoid, has released the new CBG hemp strain in the US, giving farmers a chance at diversifying their crops.
“That’s one of the reasons we decided to work with Swiss Cannabinoid as a true genetics partner. Paving the way in CBG has been a logical next step – both in advancing the agricultural industry and also in improving the availability of CBG products to US consumers.”
Working with several European geneticists and a Swiss pharmaceutical company on trials, he made a breakthrough and established Matterhorn CBG.
Matthias Ghidossi, said: “We chose to focus on CBG due to its powerful efficacy in early trials. Over the past few years, more and more research has been conducted to understand the value of CBG. The early results of clinical testing in Europe are creating a lot of excitement in the fields of science and medicine.”
The potent power of CBG is a hot topic, and American hemp farmers have been anxiously awaiting the release of reliable high-CBG genetics.
While THC and CBD have long been the cannabinoids of focus, researchers and hemp breeders are now teaming up to better understand CBG. Hemp genetics experts are aggressively breeding new strains that deliver high yields of CBG, over other cannabinoids.
In an effort to empower farmers this growing season and lead the industry as a whole, High Grade will be giving away high-quality CBG genetics to ten licensed hemp farmers in the continental United States.
Bodhi Urban, CEO of High Grade Hemp Seed, said: “At High Grade we have focused our breeding program and partnerships to ensure farmers can grow proven, strong and diverse genetics.
The partnership between High Grade Hemp Seed and Swiss Cannabinoid is answering demand with the introduction of Matterhorn CBG, a new boutique European CBG-rich cultivar, available now internationally.
CBD has recently gained attention for its medical properties, now a new CBG hemp strain is available in the United States for farmers.
