Oregon State University launches largest, most comprehensive hemp research center in the nation

By Heidi Happonen, 541-737-9180, heidi.happonen@oregonstate.edu

Oregon State University officials announced plans today (Thursday, June 13) to launch the nation’s largest research center devoted to the study of hemp, and announced that OSU will begin certifying hemp seed for planting in Oregon.

The Global Hemp Innovation Center will be based in OSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences with research taking place across the state and world. Currently, there are more than 40 OSU faculty representing 19 academic disciplines engaged in hemp research, teaching and extension services. The center will serve as a research hub connecting faculty and researchers engaged in plant research, food innovation, pharmacy, public health, public policy, business and engineering.

Hemp has the potential to become a major agricultural commodity in the United States and abroad with hemp plant fiber being used in manufactured products, including clothing, construction materials and packaging. Meanwhile, hemp seed oil is being investigated for use in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, foods and nutraceuticals. For example, hemp has a long tradition of use in treating ailments by eastern medicine.

Alan Sams, dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences, said the OSU center will be the world’s most comprehensive resource for the study of hemp.

“Our faculty are already recognized internationally as the go-to experts for hemp research,” Sams said. “The launch of this center signifies our commitment to continue to build upon that established expertise and grow our impact across the state, the nation and globally.”

Oregon State’s decision to launch the new hemp center follows Congress’ adoption of the 2018 Farm Bill that removed hemp from the list of controlled drug substances and initiated the creation of a framework for hemp to become a fully legalized commodity in the future.

“Hemp has incredible potential across several industries and sectors, including in food and health products and as a fiber commodity in many products,” Sams said. “We believe that Oregon State University is uniquely positioned to serve the global need for research-based understanding of hemp as a crop and for its use in new products.”

According to the Brightfield Group, an analytics firm that tracks the cannabis industry, the hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) market is expected to grow from $618 million in 2018 to $22 billion by 2022.

OSU already is a go-to partner with Oregon agriculture. The university collaborates with the Oregon Department of Agriculture and various state commodity commissions to certify seeds for as many as 48 agricultural commodities grown in Oregon.

As it launches its seed certification services for hemp, the seeds will be for use by farmers that are registered by the state. Oregon State will be the only university in the nation presently to certify hemp seed.

At this time, only state departments of agriculture in Colorado, North Dakota and Tennessee certify hemp seed for use in those states.

By the end of June, OSU researchers will plant the university’s third crop of hemp plants at 10 university experiment stations located in different climates and soil conditions throughout Oregon. Up to eight plots of hemp totaling no more than five acres will be planted at each experiment station. Hemp material will be harvested as the plants are flowering and will be provided to OSU researchers for study. No pollen or seeds will be produced from this year’s research crop.

Jay Noller, professor of crop and soil science at OSU, will serve as director and lead researcher for the new center.

“We want to understand how to efficiently and sustainably grow hemp for seeds, for hemp fiber materials that can be used in textiles and construction materials, including as an alternate to gravel in concrete, for hemp essential oils that have popular health and wellness uses, and for hemp grain for use in foods and feed. Multi-use hemp is what we are excited about globally.”

Noller said OSU’s hemp research center will have a global impact.

“It’s tempting to think of growing hemp to both build your house and treat disease,” Noller added. “I also like to remind people that hemp food is highly nutritious.”

Noller said Oregon State researchers are working with faculty at universities in Europe and China to explore the propagation and uses of hemp. Meanwhile, Oregon State will host in Corvallis a National Academies of Sciences symposium on hemp in the coming months.

OSU is well-situated to provide research, teaching, and outreach and engagement associated with hemp, Noller said. “We have incredible alignment between our research community, the university’s experiment stations and the OSU Extension Service to engage in strong basic research, applied research and scholarly teaching.

“We have very few agencies nationally involved in understanding the agricultural, economic assessment and public health benefits of hemp. Oregon’s location on the 45thparallel is optimal for hemp growth and a unique hemp germplasm – the genetic material used for breeding – was developed in the state over the past several decades.”

Noller said the engagement of 40 OSU faculty, 19 academic disciplines,10 university experiment stations and the OSU Extension Service will combine to make Oregon State’s hemp research effort the nation’s largest.

Beginning in 1936, the federal government prohibited the propagation of hemp plants. Oregon authorized hemp cultivation in 2009, but the Oregon of Department of Agriculture did not license its first hemp grower until 2015. Just three years later, Oregon ranked third in the United States in licensed hemp acres planted behind Montana and Colorado. The 2018 farm bill decriminalized propagation of hemp, and it is anticipated that over the next year the federal government will have a framework in place to commercially produce and utilize hemp grown in the U.S.

As of mid-May, Oregon has licensed 1,342 growers to plant 46,219 acres of hemp this year, according to the Oregon Department of Agriculture. That total is nearly six times greater than the 7,808 acres planted in 2018. Nationally, the number of licensed acres devoted to hemp cultivation increased by 204% from 2017 to 2018, according to Vote Hemp, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization.

Both Oregon and OSU have a long history of hemp cultivation and research. The university, then known as Oregon Agricultural College, partnered with scientists in the U.S. Department of Agriculture to host a national hemp research center from the 1880s until 1932.

LOS ANGELES, October 29, 2018/AxisWire/ The B2B cannabis e-commerce solution WAYV, today announced a $5 million seed round led by Craft Ventures, the investment fund created by serial entrepreneur David Sacks. WAYV enables licensed cannabis companies to access a network of hundreds of licensed brands and receive next day delivery – reliably and safely to every corner of California.  The investment will help the company strengthen the WAYV supply chain platform and hire critical resources across key functions.

“As California moves to a regulated and licensed system, there is a long tail of retailers and brands in the industry that need to be connected. The WAYV marketplace provides this critical bridge,” said David Sacks, co-founder and general partner at Craft Ventures.

Launched earlier this year, WAYV technology has already facilitated thousands of orders and delivery for myriad top brands to the majority of California retailers.  In the newly regulated California cannabis market, both retailers and brands saw the immediate benefit of a highly intelligent fulfillment and logistics platform built for the industry.

Our platform catapults the cannabis industry forward with modern technology and a compliant marketplace – already in use by hundreds of brands and distributors,” said Keith McCarty, CEO & co-founder of WAYV.  “WAYV’s marketplace streamlines fulfillment, integrates compliance with payment terms, and provides real-time product tracking. Now, retailers can build long term, trusted relationships with brands.”

New York City – October 26, 2018 /AxisWire/The Green Market Report(GMR), the cannabis industry’s most trusted source for credible in-depth financial and economic reporting, today released its 2018 Cannabis Company Index Q3 Summary Report. The report can be downloaded at GreenMarketReport.com/Reports.

The Green Market Report Cannabis Company Index was on fire in the third quarter of 2018. Cannabis stocks started 2018 in selloff mode. The Index fell 21.9% in the first quarter, but recovered in the second quarter and gained 20%. The Index jumped a whopping 56% during the third quarter.

The second quarter was notable for new public cannabis companies, such as MedMen Enterprises, The Green Organic Dutchman and Green Thumb Industries. The exchanges also stirred up some excitement, as the NASDAQ listed Cronos Group and the New York Stock Exchange welcomed Canopy Growth to its home. It seemed as if that quarter would be hard to top, but in the cannabis industry, records are meant to be broken.

“This quarter was impressive for the gains that cannabis stocks made. Some of these valuations are very rich, but the news cycle over these three months genuinely excited investors” stated Debra Borchardt, CEO of Green Market Report.

The best performing stock in the GMR Index was Isodiol (OTC: ISOLF). It had an astounding third quarter. It was in the bottom five performer list for the second quarter and now it tops the best performer list. Its shares jumped from 38 cents, hit a high of $3.60 in August and then closed out the quarter at $2.89. The company has aligned itself with top athletes as it carves out a niche for addressing sports and it appointed a new CFO.

Axim Biotechnologies (OTC: AXIM) made the worst performing stock list for every quarter so far this year. The stock began the quarter at $3.03 and finished it at $1.85; and it has continued to fall even further in the fourth quarter. Revenues have remained flat and while the losses have been trimmed, it continues to operate at a loss.

Based on acquisitions alone, the GMR Index was forced to remove MedReleaf once the deal with Aurora Cannabis closed. Hiku Brands was also removed from the list following its acquisition by Canopy Growth. In addition, Axim Biotechnologies, Terra Tech Corp. and Namaste Technologies were also removed from the index.

The new additions to the index include Charlotte’s Web (CSE: CWEB), Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY), Green Thumb Industries (CSE: GTII), Sunniva (OTC: SNNVF) and Aleafia Health Inc. (OTC: ALEAF).

“The stock markets continue to welcome more solid cannabis companies” added Borchardt. “As the exchanges also begin to list cannabis companies, the stigma will continue to drop”.

Cannaplexes to be fully operational by Spring, 2019

October 25, 2018, Los Angeles /AxisWire/ California based Dr. Robb Farms announced today that it has broken ground on the first of three new innovative facilities transforming the landscape of cannabis. The clean cannabis company has raised a total $24 million for the development and operation of three independent 45,000-square-foot hybrid indoor cannabis farms within the Coachillin complex. Each of the independent lots will incorporate and license the Dr. Robb Farms proprietary standard operating procedures to ensure best-in-class cultivation practices developed by Dr. Robert Flannery, the first PhD in the United States with the technical training and expertise in commercial cannabis cultivation.

Each hybrid indoor cultivation facility is being built with industrial steel, MgO SIPS panels and a UV-transmitting acrylic roof. Each facility will boast leading production capabilities, producing over 1,100 pounds of premium flower per month. Each facility will be able to produce six complete grow cycles a year via its proprietary controlled environment that allows for temperature and humidity optimization, and supplemental light manipulation while also utilizing the power of natural full spectrum UV derived from the Sun.

“This is a win-win for both operators and consumers as these facilities will enable us to deliver premium product at a great price, says Robert Flannery, Ph.D, founder of Dr. Robb Farms. “The natural UVA and UVB light allows for more complex and complete terpene and cannabinoid production which results in higher quality flower with more sophisticated taste and nose, and we have A.I.-driven micro CO2 injections, integrated pest management, improved water use and operational efficiencies which leads to decreased cost of goods sold (COGS).” he continued.

Coachillin, the most advanced Cannabusiness complex in California, is a 160-acre park with a streamlined regulatory environment. When complete, the complex will feature a testing lab, contract manufacturing facility, visitor center with a dispensary, brewhouse and cannabis tasting room.

About Dr. Robb Farms Dr. Robb Farms is committed to providing quality, pesticide-free cannabis by applying sound scientific methods and good science to create clean medicine. Founded after Dr. Robert Flannery found that no existing products on the market met his high standards for his mom when she was seeking relief while going through cancer treatment, Dr. Robb Farms is dedicated to making products with care, for the people we care about. Today, the Dr. Robb Farms line offers Mom’s Formula, an accurate and safe daily tablet that can be taken orally, and Eagle, a collection of pre-rolls featuring California sun-grown whole flower.

About Dr Robert Flannery Dr. Robert Flannery is the first PhD in the United States with certified technical training and expertise in growing commercial cannabis. He has been a pioneer in the field for nearly two decades, committed to clean production from the start. He utilized his education and years of experience to inform his proprietary growing methods and create the cleanest and highest quality flower for Dr. Robb Farms. Dr. Flannery remains active in the community, serving as a Chair of the Agriculture Committee for the California Cannabis Industry Association, a mentor at Gateway, a startup incubator focused on launching companies in the cannabis industry, and an advisor to the Dean of Agricultural Sciences at UC Davis.

Held from October  11th – 13th at the Marriott City Center in Oakland, CA, the New West Summit is one of the largest gatherings of publicly traded cannabis companies and international investors.

At the conference, Mr. Carlson will be co-hosting the “Public Companies Symposium” track alongside Alan Brochstein of 420 Investor and New Cannabis Ventures.

“Increasing institutional investor participation is critical to propelling the cannabis industry into greater legitimacy in the capital markets, given the current state of affairs of complicated state regulations and the lack of access to more traditional banking and investment,” said Mr. Carlson.  “It’s through symposiums and events like New West Summit, that investors meet, compare ideas, discuss strategy, trade valuable insights and forecasts and truly learn from each other to succeed in this rapidly emerging global market.”

Mr. Carlson’s co-host, Mr. Brochstein, was the first investment professional to devote himself to sharing his observations about the cannabis industry from an investor’s perspective publicly.

Mr. Brochstein is a frequent source to the media, including the NY Times, the Wall Street Journal, Fox Business, and Bloomberg TV.  Alan also regularly contributes columns for Leafly and Forbes.

On October 11, Ms. Salarizadeh will participate in an in-depth panel discussion focused on advertising and marketing within the cannabis industry titled: “It’s Time to Grow Up.  Advertising and Mobile Marketing for the Cannabis Industry.” The panel will discuss best practices for cannabis companies looking to identify and reach their target audiences across a multitude of mediums including print, OTT and mobile while navigating the complicated regulatory environment.

Ms. Salarizadeh commented, “Advertising for the cannabis industry is slowly becoming more mainstream with more and larger publishers now beginning to accept cannabis advertising.
