Original Breeders League (“OBL”) has signed a letter of intent with Segra International Corp. (“Segra”) to explore a collaboration regarding plant micropropagation (also known as ‘tissue culture’). According to this letter of intent, OBL will negotiate a service contract with Segra for micropropagation services. Under the proposed service contract Segra would transition a set of existing cannabis cultivars from OBL’s proprietary genetic portfolio into tissue culture for genetic preservation and production via micropropagation. This portfolio includes valuable high CBD, full spectrum cultivars. Through select production partnerships in the industry, OBL aims to standardize the availability of high CBD, full spectrum products globally. OBL is currently partnered in various cannabis and industrial hemp projects for both breeding and cultivation throughout California and the world.

“Original Breeders League is currently developing projects with a footprint that spans across six different countries. For the first time in history, with our partnership with Segra and their advanced tissue culture technology, we are able to offer our partners and clients access to clean, fortified and stabilized cannabis and hemp genetics” said Priscilla P. Agoncillo, OBL CEO and co-founder.
