Genetic Sequencing of a Cannabis Strain
Genetic sequencing of a cannabis strain creates a proof of existence timestamp used to order the phylogenetic tree for cannabis strains that share the same strain name. First to file on the blockchain (database) with a StrainSEEK timestamp will seed the phylogenetic tree for a given redundant strain name.
The blockchain is an open, immutable and stable public ledger for any transaction and ideal for the cannabis phylogenetic tree that everyone can see and contribute to. Metadata such as strain originator, terpene and cannabinoid profiles can also be submitted to populate the blockchain with relevant meta information. As this database grows, a distributed consensus on the proper nomenclature for the genetics on display will emerge.
