ABSTRACT: Cannabis sativa L. (Cannabaceae) is one of the earliest known cultivated plants and is important in the global economy today as a licit and an illicit crop. Molecular markers distinguishing licit and illicit cultivars have forensic utility, but no direct comparison of hemp and marijuana amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) has been made to date. Genetic variation was surveyed in three populations of fiber hemp and a potent cultivar of marijuana using AFLP markers. Ten primer… Expand
Differentiation between fiber and drug types of hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) from a collection of wild and domesticated accessions
Accessions of wild and domesticated hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) originating from Colombia, Mexico, California, Bolivia, Thailand, Afghanistan, Serbia, Hungary, south Africa and different regions ofExpand
Inter simple sequence repeats separate efficiently hemp from marijuana (Cannabis sativa L.)
TLDR
To identify the genetic relatedness of the seized samples and to separate drug and hemp type plants, Inter Simple Sequence Repeats were employed for analysis based on single plant material (SET1) and bulked samples of them (SET2). Expand
Assessing Genetic Diversity in Cannabis sativa Using Molecular Approaches
TLDR
Using ISSR markers, it is shown that distinct DNA banding patterns can allow for the initial discrimination between many of the strains tested, and provide an insight into the possible genetic relationships among strains. Expand
Genetic structure of Cannabis sativa var. indica cultivars based on genomic SSR (gSSR) markers: Implications for breeding and germplasm management
TLDR
This results represent the first comprehensive study of intra-varietal diversity in C. sativa var. Expand
Differentiation of Cannabis subspecies by THCA synthase gene analysis using RFLP.
TLDR
An algorithm for the fast and accurate forensic analysis of samples suspected to be marijuana was constructed, answering the question if an analyzed sample is capable of producing THC in concentrations higher than 0.3%. Expand
Comparative Genetic Structure of Cannabis sativa Including Federally Produced, Wild Collected, and Cultivated Samples
TLDR
Although the sample size was small, “research grade marijuana” provided for research is genetically distinct from most retail drug-type Cannabis that patients and patrons are consuming. Expand
Characterization of new chloroplast markers to determine biogeographical origin and crop type of Cannabis sativa
TLDR
This project seeks to exploit sequence variations in C. sativa chloroplast DNA to allow genetic determination of biogeographic origin, discrimination between marijuana and hemp, and association between cases for C.sativa samples. Expand
Genetic individualization of Cannabis sativa by a short tandem repeat multiplex system
TLDR
This is the first study to report a single-reaction sixplex and apply it to the analysis of almost 100 cannabis samples of known geographic origin and detect 29 alleles averaging 4.8 alleles per loci. Expand
Genetic Diversity of Cannabis sativa L.Based on AFLP Analysis
  • Yang Ming
  • Biology
  • 2012
TLDR
This study analyzed genetic diversity of cannabis populations in molecular level, provided scientific evidence for the protection of seeds,breeding, evolution study of industrial hemp, and indicated that rich genetic diversity among 13 cannabis populations. Expand
Gene duplication and divergence affecting drug content in Cannabis sativa.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis suggests a history of duplication and divergence affecting drug content, and the diversity of THCA and CBDA synthase sequences observed in the mapping population, the position of enzyme coding loci on the map, and patterns of expression suggest multiple linked loci. Expand

Genetic diversity of Cannabis sativa germplasm based on RAPD markers
TLDR
RAPD markers provide a powerful tool for the investigation of genetic variation in cultivars/accessions of hemp and Variability within the two cultivars ‘Carmagnola’ and ‘Fibranova1’ was shown, suggesting good possibilities for long–term selection work. Expand
Comparison of Hemp Varieties Using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Markers
TLDR
The correlations among the molecular data and the genetic structure of the different cultivars and the consequences in relation to variety discrimination in hemp are discussed. Expand
Isolation of microsatellite markers in Cannabis sativa L. (marijuana)
TLDR
15 variable microsatellite loci in Cannabis sativa have utility for characterizing genetic diversity in cultivated and naturalized Cannabis populations and significant genetic differentiation was found between accessions. Expand
Tetrahydrocannabinol levels in hemp (cannabis sativa) germplasm resources
TLDR
This study surveyed THC levels of 167 accessions grown in southern Ontario, making this the largest survey to date of germplasm intended for breeding in North America, and found forty-three percent of these had THC levels ≥0.3% and are unsuitable for hemp development in NorthAmerica. Expand
A chemotaxonomic analysis of cannabinoid variation in Cannabis (Cannabaceae).
TLDR
A two-species concept of Cannabis is supported by the determined frequencies of B(D) and B(T) in sample populations of 157 Cannabis accessions determined from CBD and THC banding patterns, visualized by starch gel electrophoresis. Expand
Application of AFLP for the detection of sex-specific markers in hemp
TLDR
The abundant number of potential markers for the male sex, their complete cosegregation with male plants and the absence of marker for the female sex support the presence of a male sex chromosome in hemp. Expand
Short tandem repeat (STR) DNA markers are hypervariable and informative in Cannabis sativa: implications for forensic investigations.
TLDR
The findings demonstrate the promise of cannabis STR markers to provide information on: (1) agronomic type, (2) the geographical origin of drug seizures, and (3) evidence of conspiracy in production of clonally propagate drug crops. Expand
A simple DNA extraction method for marijuana samples used in amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis.
TLDR
The QIAGEN plant DNeasy method was simple, efficient, and reproducible for processing small quantities of marijuana into DNA and able to generate reproducible amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) profiles. Expand
Sex-linked AFLP markers indicate a pseudoautosomal region in hemp (Cannabis sativa L.)
TLDR
The recombination analysis led to the conclusion that there is a pseudoautosomal region (PAR) on the sex chromosomes, allowing recombination between the X and the Y chromosome. Expand
Analysis of the wild potato germplasm of the series Acaulia with AFLPs: implications for ex situ conservation
TLDR
AFLP analysis appeared to be an efficient method to verify taxonomic classification and to identify redundancies in the wild germplasm of the series Acaulia, and no consistent relationship between geographic distance and genetic diversity was revealed. Expand
