Cutting-Edge Hemp (Cannabis) Research

by Sadie Baldwin

Bruce Bugbee and a team of scientists at Utah State University are leveraging their expertise in controlled environments to research best cultivation practices, optimize yield, and enhance the quality of hemp (cannabis) for botanical medicines.

Bruce and his team are optimizing the growth of the plants, extracting and characterizing the cannabinoids, and making CBD oil. Then the research will move to the University of Utah's School of Pharmacology.
