Looking at the natural world around us, we’re left awestruck by the sublime forces at work underneath our very feet. And as technology increasingly reveals the beautiful complexity of nature’s structure, it inspires a fresh wave of intellectual curiosity and humanistic purpose — prompting questions like:
What if we could naturally reduce our need for dangerous pesticides…?
What if we could naturally make our pharmaceuticals more effective in lower doses…?
What if we could naturally mitigate the negative side effects of medicinal therapies…?
What if we could naturally grow our plants to target specific health and wellness needs…?
These very questions are the motivation and the mission of Biotech Institute.
To begin to answer these, we turn back to the earth for our inspiration, as nature is always the grand architect. Our aim is simply to use the blueprint more effectively.
Toward that end, Biotech Institute develops groundbreaking, novel, and sustainable therapeutic products by optimizing the naturally occurring resources found within all living organisms.
We achieve this through advanced plant breeding techniques, innovative agricultural technologies, and rigorous application of data analytics and research.
But more importantly, we achieve this through insatiable curiosity, relentless experimentation, and a perspective that failure is simply an invitation to formulate a new hypothesis.
Because the solutions to our health and wellness challenges reside within us and around us. It’s only a matter of uncovering the deeper connections between our bodies and our plants.
Along this journey of discovery — which, to date, has focused on unlocking the “pharmacological treasure trove” that is cannabis — we often generate exciting IP breakthroughs, including:
Type I, Type II, and Type III cannabis chemovars with stable, predictable terpenoid content.
Chemovars designed for improved control of pain, inflammation, convulsion, and anxiety.
Chemovars with reduced adverse events, such as panic, psychosis, and memory impairment.
Encouragingly, many cultivators have already begun to draw from our genetic toolbox to breed safer and more effective material for patients.
Yet these are just stepping stones toward the larger, everevolving vision of coexisting in greater harmony with nature, and utilizing its precious resources to enhance our enduring wellbeing and happiness.
