StateHouse Holdings joins the Cannabis Research Coalition
StateHouse Holdings Inc. joined the Cannabis Research Coalition (CRC), a collaborative research partnership between The Hemp Mine and Clemson University. The partnership will address cannabis cultivation and postharvest challenges.
The CRC partners 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. Using a cooperative research approach, the coalition is able to provide practical answers to the questions that limit the success of the cannabis industry.
StateHouse expects to benefit from the coalition’s cooperative research model because it will provide the Company’s cultivation teams with the tools needed to stay competitive while further enhancing quality. Additionally, StateHouse will have access to exclusive offers from allied trade members; obtain SOPs for production; and participate in monthly and annual conferences and virtual meetings regarding research updates.
“It thrills us to partner with StateHouse, a science-based, California-focused operator with an impressive commercial cultivation facility,” said Allison Justice, founder and CEO of the CRC. “This type of collaboration is exactly what the cannabis industry needs to improve in the areas of quality, efficiency, and sustainability. We look forward to working with Travis Higginbotham, StateHouse’s vice president of cultivation, and his team.”
“We are eager to support the efforts of both Clemson University and The Hemp Mine through participation in the CRC,” said Mr. Higginbotham. “The Clemson Flowering Physiology laboratory, led by Dr. Jim Faust, focuses on very relevant and applied research for multiple other plant-touching markets, and in collaboration with Dr. Justice and The Hemp Mine, will enhance its position as an innovative and science-based thought leader in cannabis research. To remain competitive as growers, we must partner with research institutions and companies who are focused on continuous improvement and constantly challenging what we think we know about this crop.”
