Sample populations of 157 Cannabis accessions of diverse geographic origin were surveyed for allozyme variation at 17 gene loci. The frequencies of 52 alleles were subjected to principal components analysis. A scatter plot revealed two major groups of accessions. The sativa gene pool includes fiber/seed landraces from Europe, Asia Minor, and Central Asia, and ruderal populations from Eastern Europe. The indica gene pool includes fiber/seed landraces from eastern Asia, narrow-leafleted drug… Expand

Latitudinal Adaptation and Genetic Insights Into the Origins of Cannabis sativa L.
TLDR
Molecular evidence reveals for the first time that the low latitude haplogroup (Haplogroup L) is the earliest divergent lineage, implying that Cannabis is probably originated in low latitude region. Expand
A Multivariate Analysis of Allozyme Variation in 93 Cannabis Accessions from the VIR Germplasm Collection
TLDR
The Vavilov Institute in Russia maintains the world's largest collection of Cannabis sativa hemp germplasm through periodic seed regeneration through periodic Seed regeneration, which shows little tendency for the accessions to cluster according to country of origin or their assignment to eco-geographical groups. Expand
A Combined Analysis of Agronomic Traits and Allozyme Allele Frequencies for 69 Cannabis Accessions
TLDR
Southern and eastern Asian hemp (fiber/seed) accessions group apart from hemp accessions from Europe, Asia Minor, and central Asia and had significantly higher levels of THC and lower levels of CBD, wider leaflets relative to their length, longer xylem fibers, and lower bast fiber content. Expand
Assessment of Genetic Diversity and Population Structure in Iranian Cannabis Germplasm
TLDR
This investigation has explored the use of Genotyping-By-Sequencing (GBS) in Iranian cannabis and found some strong signal to define some locations as population according to fineSTRUCTURE analyses, however, single nucleotide variant analysis uncovered a relatively moderate level of variation among Iranian cannabis. 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
A classification of endangered high-THC cannabis (Cannabis sativa subsp. indica) domesticates and their wild relatives
TLDR
The classification presented here circumscribes and names four taxa of Cannabis that represent critically endangered reservoirs of germplasm from which modern cannabinoid strains originated, and which are in urgent need of conservation. Expand
Cannabis Domestication, Breeding History, Present-day Genetic Diversity, and Future Prospects
TLDR
The great majority of drug Cannabis cultivars are now completely domesticated, and thus are entirely dependent on humans for their survival. Expand
Potentials and Challenges of Genomics for Breeding Cannabis Cultivars
TLDR
The main advances in the genomic field of this species are resumed and a discriminant and polymorphic panel of SSR markers are provided as a valuable tool for future marker assisted breeding programs. Expand
Genomic and Chemical Diversity in Cannabis
TLDR
A combined analysis of population genomic and trait variation informs the understanding of the potential uses of different genetic variants for medicine and agriculture, providing valuable insights and tools for a rapidly emerging, valuable legal industry. 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
Patterns of diversity in Cannabis
SummaryA Cannabis germplasm collection was evaluated for traits relevant to the use of hemp as an arable source of paper pulp. The traits were related to stem yield and quality, psychoactive potency,Expand
RAPD analysis distinguishes Cannabis sativa samples from different sources
Abstract Samples of the seeds and seedlings of Cannabis sativa , and its dried leaves and flowerheads (marijuana), could be reliably distinguished by RAPD-PCR (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA usingExpand
LEAF VARIATION AMONG CANNABIS SPECIES FROM A CONTROLLED GARDEN
The genus Cannabis has had a long association with man and contains considerable variation in growth form, achene size, and chemical content. The variation has taxonomically been variouslyExpand
Genetics of Plant Isozymes
TLDR
The discovery in many populations of relatively high levels of polymorphism at isozyme loci has forced a major reconsideration of evolutionary theory. Expand
CANNABIS: AN EXAMPLE OF TAXONOMIC NEGLECT
TLDR
There can be no progress in unravelling the taxonomic complexities in the genus until the biology of the wild populations is investigated, because of the extraordinary plasticity and variability of cultivated cannabis. Expand

Isozymes and the Analysis of Genetic Structure in Plant Populations
TLDR
Genetic variation in plant populations is distributed nonrandomly, with marked genetic differences occurring over short distances, like the plants themselves, genes and genotypes tend to be clumped. Expand

TLDR
Cannabis has been associated with man since very early times, yet, surprisingly, little is known about its comparative wood anatomy, except for details of seedling anatomy and floral structure. Expand
