Monthly Update – September Highlights

Raising the Bar: From Hemp Fields to Beer Taps

Canna Advisors serves on the New West Genetics board, a company striving to advance the genetics behind producing industrial hemp. Aside from optimizing the fiber, seed, oil, and cannabinoid content of hemp plants, New West is also working on a special project for a well known craft brewery to produce hemp with a powerful terpene profile. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that are found in all plants, but can be especially pungent in cannabis. In the near future, this majestic hemp plant could appear in Colorado’s craft brewing scene!

New West Genetics Looks to the Future

This summer, Canna Advisors co-founders Jay and Diane Czarkowski visited a promising company in northern Colorado, New West Genetics.
