Griffin, The Hemp Mine Sign Genetics Deal

Horticultural broker Griffin has entered into a genetic distribution agreement with The Hemp Mine. The Hemp Mine is based out of South Carolina and is a hemp genetics provider across the United States.

Griffin works with the strongest breeders in the ornamental world, and is bringing the same approach to the hemp arena. This partnership strengthens Griffin’s genetic offer and the technical know-how behind the genetics.

“The Hemp Mine understands our expectations for breeding and genetics partners, their genetics are market-focused and proven by trials, and they bring extensive crop knowledge,” said Tami Van Gaal, CEA division leader for Griffin.

“We believe our partnership with The Hemp Mine brings our customers industry-leading genetic inputs that are important to their success in this young, often dynamic, and sometimes challenging market. We also secure a strong supply chain because The Hemp Mine is partnered with rooting stations that fully understand the young plant market. The rooting stations are true professionals that our customers will know and recognize.”

The partnership allows Griffin to tap into The Hemp Mine’s genetics and gives both companies an expanded geographical footprint.

“The Hemp Mine offers a data-driven, regionally validated and proven genetic portfolio,” said The Hemp Mine’s Travis Higginbotham. “We are excited to partner with Griffin to share these genetics with our mutual customers. Our diverse offerings allow customers to choose hemp with characteristics that fit their program needs. The passion Griffin has for offering superior technical support alongside their live goods gives us confidence that we have chosen the right partner. Together, knowing honesty and transparency on genetic performance should be a given, we will ensure customer success in any region in the U.S.”
