Research

Our research program is bringing together significant expertise at UC Davis, across the UC and internationally to investigate the potential of hemp and cannabis. We are focused on molecular and traditional approaches to genotyping, phenotyping, pre-breeding and breeding for bespoke chemical signatures that may be of value to the pharmaceutical and other industries. We have expertise to address the environmental impact of cannabis and hemp cultivation, particularly water, pest, pathogen and greenhouse gas impacts and can offer advice on minimizing these environmental footprints. Together with colleagues we form a strong interdisciplinary group and welcome enquiries for external agencies who wish to partner with us.
