In an article by SeedQuest, they discuss how the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices (AEMPS) has granted the Institute of Agriculture and Food Research and Technology (IRTA) a permit to grow cannabis plants for scientific research.
Since 2019, IRTA, an organization within the CRAG consortium, and the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) have been developing tools for the genetic improvement of cannabis plants in collaboration with Front Range Biosciences. To learn more about this research partnership, read an excerpt from the article below:
"CRAG and IRTA are world class research centers, and we are very pleased with the progress we have made in our breeding program in our collaboration over the last 1.5 years. The authorization granted by AEMPS is an exciting milestone for FRB's continued expansion in Europe", according to Dr. Jonathan Vaught, CEO of Front Range Biosciences. "The continued growth of the medical cannabis industry throughout Europe represents a great opportunity for commercialization of new cannabis varieties and high performance seed for the efficient production of medically relevant cannabinoid ingredients."
