Meristem Farms is partnering with Cultivaris, a California-based producer of clean-stock hemp clones from varieties bred and phenotyped by elite growers around the country. Cultivaris employs proprietary non-GMO methods—perfected through decades of experience in horticultural production of ornamental plants—that remove most or all viruses and other pathogens from the mother stock.
These clean-stock clones (‘liners,’ as they are termed in the horticulture industry) are taken from this mother stock to produce young plants with little or no incidence of genetic defects that are otherwise common in the hemp clone industry today, such as hop latent viroid (HpLVd,) hemp streak virus, cannabis cryptic virus (CanCV), tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV) and arabis mosaic virus (ArMV). Farms planting these liners thus enjoy significantly greater yield and quality of flower production, as a result of the relative infrequency or absence of plants sickened by viruses and other pathogens.
