US (SC): A new research based, cannabis not-for-profit coalition to benefit growers

The Hemp Mine is partnering with Clemson University to create the Cannabis Research Coalition (CRC), a not-for-profit organization that focuses on cannabis horticultural research.

The Cannabis Research Coalition is a professional group dedicated to cannabis research. Dr. Allison Justice & The Hemp Mine have partnered with Dr. Jim Faust’s Flowering Physiology Laboratory at Clemson University to address the cultivation and post-harvest issues that challenge today’s cannabis industry.

“This is an exciting time for the cannabis industry. As most states now have cannabis production, the time to come together to push this industry forward with solid research and science,” said Allison
Justice, PhD., Founder & CEO of The Hemp Mine.

"Our mission is to partner with cannabis-industry stakeholders to advance the exploration of the cannabis plant and implement science-based research to develop the techniques required to create a sustainable, efficient, and profitable industry."

"Our approach is to combine the resources of stakeholders—individuals and businesses—to fund research that provides practical answers to the questions that limit our success as an industry."

"The cooperative research model, whereby members benefit from the pooled resources of an entire group, has driven horticulture and greenhouse research for decades. Cooperative research allows you to be at the cutting edge of science-based research for a fraction of the actual cost. By partnering with colleagues, collaborators, and sometimes competitors, you can stay at the forefront of production know-how."

“We are at an unprecedented time in the history of plant science where we have an incredibly valuable plant for which there is almost zero scientific research. The opportunities to improve production methods with solid data are vast. It is truly a unique and exciting time to be a horticultural scientist,” stated Jim Faust, PhD., Clemson
University Flowering Physiology Laboratory.

Coalition Kickoff
The CRC will be having its first virtual meeting on January 7, 2022 to discuss membership, answer questions and give a sneak peak of projects already underway. For questions or to join the mailing list, please contact
