Why Phylos Certified?

Cannabis plants are currently sold under unreliable names (not every “Blue Dream” is the same plant variety), meaning inconsistent experiences for everyone — from farmers to consumers.

Phylos Certified is a public and verified genetic ID based on world-class DNA sequence analysis of individual plant varieties. It allows businesses all along the supply chain to provide science behind their branding.

The end goal is about consistency—from patients in need of reliable medicine to moms looking for a repeatable way to unwind.

Phylos Certified is:

  • A verified genetic location in the Phylos Galaxy Phylos Galaxy
  • A unique seal and public ID
  • A genotype report showing closest genetic relatives, line stability, population profile, identical clones, and more

Gain the trust of your customers and distinguish your brand.

In an increasingly crowded marketplace, growers and breeders are seeking creative ways to differentiate and legitimize their brands. They’re also increasingly learning that genotyping is the first key step to creating a consistent, reliable product. With Phylos Certified, you can feed both of those birds with the same hand.

Make your data open source — or protect your IP.

As a bonus, you can opt in to sharing your sequence data with the Open Cannabis Project – which helps to defend your intellectual property by cataloguing it as prior art. We will never share your data without your permission. It’s your choice—always.
