The LeafWorks Team

We are a plant genomics company conducting cutting edge research and developing commercial DNA testing services for the cannabis and hemp markets. 

Our research links diverse genotypes to agriculturally important traits to produce a foundational understanding of cannabis and hemp. Unlike other cannabis genomic companies, our research is built upon Certified Reference Material. Certified Reference Material is the scientific standard for all plant genetic identification and an essential prerequisite to produce accurate genetic tests with real meaning in the marketplace. Without Certified Reference Material, data cannot be validated.

Using validated findings, our skilled in-house scientific team converts research into crucial DNA-based services that mitigate risk, maximize transparency and enable modern breeding techniques in the cannabis market so our clients can reach their own business goals with confidence.

At LeafWorks, using science to help others is at the heart of who we are. Our training drives our commitment to better understand and protect the vast array of solutions found in the plant world. Our efforts are focused on building services that ensure consistency, maximize safety, steward sustainability, and honor herbal culture. We are devoted to building a better botanical world.
