According to a release, BLOCKStrain has developed the “first integrated blockchain platform to register and track intellectual property in the cannabis industry.”

It adds: “BLOCKStrain’s technology allows cannabis growers and breeders to identify and secure rights to their intellectual property and also streamlines the administrative process and reduces the costs of genetic and mandatory quality-control testing for legal cannabis. BLOCKStrain’s technology is proprietary, immutable and cryptographically secure, thereby establishing a single-source, accurate, validated and permanent account for cannabis strains from ownership to market.”
