Our goal is to become the leader in premium, certified organic cannabis by focusing on the Research and Development of state-of-the-art agricultural practices and micro-propagation.

AGRICULTURAL INTELLIGENCE

TGOD's genetic breeding and refinement cultivates novel strains, including cannabinoids, terpenes and disease-resistant strains. Our Research & Development of these traits help expand clinical trials in both the domestic and international markets. Because science rules.

MICRO-PROPAGATION

Micro-propagation - the process that uses plant tissue culture to grow larger stock, allows us to plant clean, standardized organic cannabis that grows equally, consistently and free of harmful bacteria that may carry from the mother plant.
