In December of each year, CBT’s five editors chose one story for the annual “List of Favorites”. When considering the articles published in 2019, Andrea Sparr-Jaswa, Science Editor at CBT chose the guest column published in the October 2019 issue entitled Sativa vs. Indica, written by Dr. Curt Livesay, Director of Agronomy Services at Agrios Global. In addition to the article, an informative webinar was co-hosted on October 8, 2019, by Ms. Sparr-Jaswa and Dr. Livesay on the topic of “Sativa vs Indica”, which CBT noted was one off the publishers most successful webinars to date.
Rounding out the 2019 list of favorites were; Vaping-Related Lung Illness chosen by Noelle Skodzinski Editorial Director, Going Public Series chosen by Michelle Simakis, Editor, The Science Void, chosen by Johnathan Katz, Managing Editor, and Diversity and Differentiate, chosen by Brian MacIver, Senior Editor.
Ms. Sparr-Jaswa in summarizing her choice noted, “In this continuation of the conversation around the indica-sativa debate, Director of Agronomy Services at Agrios Global Holdings, Dr. Curtis Livesay, evidences recent research as he makes the case for moving past this conflicted classification system once and for all. Livesay's work was brought to life in a subsequent discussion between the author and CBT in one of the publication’s most successful webinars to date.“ Dr. Livesay’s article can be found at; https://www.cannabisbusinesstimes.com/article/cannabis-business-times-editors-favorite-stories-2019/.
Dr. Livesay notes consumers and cannabis growers alike must understand the implications of characterizing the cultivars that are being sold into the legal market. Retailers must know how to position these products for a consumer and patient base that relies on cannabis businesses for education, guidance, accuracy and, consistency.
