Canadian Licensed Producer of premium cannabis products The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF) today announced that it has hired Deron Caplan as its director of plant science. Dr. Caplan is the first person in North America to earn a doctorate in philosophy with research focused on cannabis production, earning his degree from the University of Guelph in August 2018. He has written numerous scientific journal articles on cannabis and was the primary author of the first peer-reviewed paper on indoor cannabis production published in North America. Dr. Caplan has provided expert commentary on cannabis for a variety of national media outlets and has testified on cannabis production before the Canadian Senate’s Standing Committee on Agriculture and Forestry. He is an expert on growing, fertilization, propagation and irrigation management techniques and protocols for cannabis production under a controlled environment and he, along with his academic advisors while earning his doctorate, invented four growing substrates specifically formulated and tested for cannabis production. “Flowr is focused on producing premium quality cannabis at scale with industry-leading efficiency and that requires remaining a leader in both cultivation techniques and genetics,” FLWR Co-Founder Tom Flow stated in the news release. “We believe that adding Deron to our existing team and alliance with Hawthorne Canada strengthens our position at the forefront of understanding the tools and techniques needed to grow great cannabis.”
