The BLOCKStrain Platform
Trust Begins with Transparency
How it works
Cannabis has already become one of the most heavily tested products by regulatory bodies in Canada and around the world. The industry faces unique challenges that BLOCKStrain was built to address.
Through BLOCKStrain’s platform and lab-testing partners, the process is more efficient, cutting the administrative burden in half and getting products to market faster.
DNA-Based Product Validation
The underlying technology creates a genetic fingerprint that identifies and validates the product. Any participant on the platform, including consumers, can view and track what’s happening with each product from genome to sale.
Intellectual Property Protection
The BLOCKStrain platform protects the intellectual property of growers and breeders. For example, if a craft grower creates a popular strain with unique characteristics, they will be able to protect their intellectual property by registering the strain’s genome with BLOCKStrain.
Data is the key to verification
Clients register by creating an online account with BLOCKStrain, which starts the process. Organizations and independent growers submit seeds, flower and post-extraction product for testing to a registered testing facility, which then submits test results to BLOCKStrain. Pre-existing data of genetic cannabis strains can also be submitted via BLOCKStrain’s verification administrators. The results are added to the user group’s blockchain account. Submissions are entered into BLOCKStrain, and the transaction is completed and recorded.
Each time an item is tested and verified by the network, a Master Strain Affidavit is auto-generated and given a unique “BLOCKStrain Address” along with a traceable QR Code. Producers, patients, and consumers are able to verify the test and can also rate the product, write reviews and share opinions. This detail is stored within BLOCKStrain’s secure technology and, like the test results, cannot be tampered with or modified.
Now you know
BLOCKStrain has developed the most comprehensive, secure and community-driven cannabis genetics archival platform on the market. Cannabis breeders and growers, large and small, can protect and release their varieties into the public domain worry free. Consumers can know exactly what they are buying, building a culture of transparency and trust.
