Green Rock Hemp's GeneticsCubed receives a patent for a high-CBC hemp cultivar

Green Rock Hemp Holdings, a vertically integrated grower, processor and marketer of hemp derivatives, is proud to announce that its genetics company, GeneticsCubed, has received a patent on a unique, high-CBC hemp cultivar, C2B. Cannabichromene (CBC) is a trace, high-value cannabinoid with great therapeutic potential, one of the most prominent in medical research. "We developed the C2B strain using selective breeding and high throughput screening to create a distinct hemp genotype that consistently produces elevated levels of CBC," stated GeneticsCubed scientist, Thomas Azwell, PhD. "Medical research has shown CBC's role in healing different physiological processes, such as an anti-inflammatory agent, treatment for neurological disorders, and even hypothermia." "This is a huge achievement and speaks to the power of our vertical and the value it creates for the hemp consumer," stated Joseph Cachey, Chief Executive Officer, Green Rock Hemp Holdings. "Each company under the Green Rock umbrella will play an important role in bringing this strain to fruition, beginning with our genetic innovation, continuing with meticulous propagation and cultivation, and concluding with extraction at our state-of-the-art facility and distribution through our quality consumer brands."

Following its development at GeneticsCubed, the C2B cultivar was sent to Red Dune Seed for propagation and seed production. The resulting seeds are now growing at Mesa Rising Hemp Farm in Green River, Utah, where flower will be harvested in September. Extraction and refinement will take place at Green Rock's ISO 9001:2015-certified extraction facility, Red Mesa Science & Refining, before being sold as a raw material and distributed to end consumers by Enhanced Botanicals.

In collaboration with the University of California-Berkeley, GeneticsCubed has also completed the development of other novel medicinal strains and has additional pending patent applications. "Our family of companies are focused on being good partners dedicated to providing vertical solutions to the industrial hemp community, and these innovations ultimately benefit the end user who needs quality solutions," concluded Cachey.
