With a population of 36 million people, Canada has the potential to become a hotbed for scientific studies related to cannabis.

When we consider the 200 or more bioactive compounds that have been discovered in cannabis, often the more widely understood phytocannabinoids and terpenes tend to steal the spotlight. But these aren’t the only important compounds produced by cannabis.

Scientists are currently in the midst of exploring uncharted territory: The cannabis genome.

The mission is to study how cannabis impacts society, looking at everything from public health and the environment to the economy and the legal system.

Cannabis strains are commonly mislabeled, and strain names often aren't a reliable means of identifying genetic differences between plants.

Christopher Martinez has brought pharmaceutical-grade precision to Florida's first marijuana testing laboratory.
