DeBacco, an adjunct plant science instructor, created a unique “choose your own adventure” model for the advanced course that focuses in more detail on growing cannabis successfully. With this model, students can choose to dig deeper on aspects that are of the most interest to them, getting greater insight into certain parts of the process. This will include allowing students to learn how to propagate from seeds or clones, as well as the finer aspects of growing indoors versus outdoors.
Nationally, many states have seen public support for legalization of marijuana, a type of cannabis that contains higher levels of the psychoactive chemical THC. Every ballot initiative involving the legalization or decriminalization of marijuana in the 2020 election passed.
Since the ground-breaking UConn course launched two years ago, public perception and legislation related to cannabis have continued to evolve.
‘Blazing New Ground’
The advanced course will also focus on various other aspects of the cannabis business.
In addition to DeBacco and Berkowitz, other UConn cannabis researchers are putting UConn as the cutting-edge of cannabis innovation. For example, Yi Li, a professor in the Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture,has been developing gene editing technologies for cannabis to manipulate commercially important genes in the plant, and Jessica Lubell-Brand, an associate professor in the Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture, is developing new hemp varieties and methods to improve commercial production.
Berkowitz hopes the expansion of the courses will help pave the way to develop a much larger program to keep up with emerging cannabis activity.
In the introductory class, students are exposed to all aspects of the growing process. The plants, which are different than marijuana because of their low levels of THC, are used as examples for class demonstrations. Even in the online class, students learn about a range of horticultural methods applied to cannabis, such as transplanting, training plants to alter canopy and flower architecture, culling males, pest management, and more.
