Synopsis

In this book, you will learn about cannabis from its fundamental unit, in other words, what identifies it and gives it these important characteristics, making it a unique species, based on its genetic material or the information present in the plant's genes. This network of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid), controls all the processes of defense, nutrition, and communication of cannabis, and at the same time produces wonderful molecules such as phenylpropanoids, cannabinoids, and terpenes, which offer us important medicinal properties.

New sequencing technologies have allowed a deeper study of the Cannabis genome and thanks to this, more important proteins for the plant are now known, as well as the biological pathways where they act, allowing plant species to be genetically modified, providing great benefits for crops. 

Additionally, genetic engineering is transforming agricultural techniques, being a useful alternative in monitoring the stages of cultivation, also, these advances are revolutionizing the understanding of pharmacogenetics, which is how our body assimilates cannabis-based medicines.

If you are interested in learning more about the extraordinary world of cannabis genetics, we invite you to enjoy this audiobook that Pharmacology University brings to you.
