Queensland Country Life – James McManagan A group of keen hemp producers, processors and industry supporters shuffled into the Breakfast Creek Hotel in Brisbane on Wednesday night to officially form Queensland’s first representative hemp growers association in what is a major step for the State’s industry. Unofficially known as iHemp Queensland, the body is the […]

When transgenic cannabis seed comes to market, growers will have many more choices of strains to grow. Genetic modification of cannabis will inevitably lead to an increase in variety since more genetic traits are being introduced into the population. Genetic variety decreases based on a decrease in choice on what varieties to cultivate. Thus, stifling […]

During the full crop cycle, flowering is the most important phase in hemp cultivation. Flowering influences and determines both biomass and seed yield in terms of quantity of quality, we have found the most desirable flowering phases are short in duration and even maturity because it favours uniform crop development. Throughout this article I will […]

By James McManagan Queensland Country Life It might not be happening quickly but the cogs ending Australia’s cannabis prohibition are turning – according to one of the country’s largest suppliers of industrial hemp genetics, Hemp Farms Australia. Lauchlan Grout and Harrisson Lee founded the company in 2013 and believe industrial hemp and cannabis is no […]

Throughout this initial piece on the Botany of Cannabis sativa, I summarise botany of our planet as a whole and where cannabis fits in to the early establishment of our plant ecosystem. The plant sciences include genetics, physiology and anatomy, biochemistry ecology, systematics, biogeography, economics, and, of course, biotechnology. With so many sub-disciplines, we can […]

Understanding a plant genome in all it’s totality, the composition, structure and evolution is fundamental to the development of any crop. We dive into the complex genetic structure of both medicinal cannabis and industrial hemp, whilst understanding the evolutionary and domestication history of Cannabis as this remains poorly understood. Simply put, Genomics is the study […]

As critical as it may seem, there is more carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere today than any point in history during the last 80,000 years. The rise of CO2 concentrations are responsible for the depletion in our planet’s ozone layer which has resulted in warming of the earths atmosphere, commonly known as the greenhouse […]

DECEMBER 1, 2020 Caason Group News Caason’s Aileron Pastoral Holdings (APH) has been granted a Class A research licence for the cultivation of low-THC hemp for scientific research under the Northern Territory Government’s Industrial Hemp Act 2019. This research, planned for early 2021, precedes our aim of broadacre cropping production from 2022. Importantly, APH now […]

Plant biotechnology is simply the use of scientific knowledge or discovery to generate useful plants. In the context of genetics and bioinformatics, plant biotechnology often refers to the manipulation of DNA sequences of a plant species in order to produce a more desirable end product. Hemp, whose scientific name is Cannabis sativa, is perhaps the […]
