Nevada Brand Name Marijuana is Closer Than You Think
Nevada Brand Name Marijuana is on its way.
Since medical legalization has come to Nevada, we have heard almost every pseudo-name under the sun when it comes to marijuana: Super Lemon Haze, Chemdawg, Headband, Cheese, UK Cheese, Blue Dream, Glazed Cherries, Gorilla Glue #4, Lemon Jack, Super Silver Haze, LA Confidential, Tangie, and the list goes on and on! When it comes to naming marijuana strains, the past list could go on for days; in the past breeders and growers alike have been able to name their specific flower anything they want at the moment of cultivation, even if it’s not truly what they say it is. Because there’s so much variation in state regulation, until recently what’s considered Lemon Haze in Nevada could be called OG Kush in New York…
Soon the days of creating gimmicky, artificial names for specific strains will all be in the past. Cannabis Business Times recently reported that on August 4, 2015, a marijuana cultivator filed a patent on their own specific strain to make its own true strain. U.S. patent number 9095554 was granted in Las Vegas, Nevada for a strain of cannabis that has a unique genetic makeup and produces significantly high amounts of THC.
What does that mean for all you marijuana smokers? It means that from now on if your favorite medical marijuana dispensary gets in a new batch of Girl Scout Cookies or Durban Poison, it will be very similar if not identical to the same batch of flower you liked 6 months ago. Now, this also brings about the controversy in how the chain of custody will be maintained and what legal actions will be taken if people don’t adhere to the patent laws. Time will tell in regards to those actions, but nonetheless, this is a monumental step in the right direction for the marijuana industry as a whole as we inch closer to true legitimacy.
It’s pretty cool that the industry is starting to build these infrastructures of standards and we are also stoked that our favorite strains will always be there for us in the future, and be consistent. Big strides are being made as a community and we are glad to be a part of keeping that momentum going in the right direction.
