Abstract

The invention provides for a system to track the origin of cannabis products and cannabis derivative products without the need for packaging or labeling through the use of nucleic acid tags. The invention further provides for a method of tracking the origin of cannabis products and cannabis derivative products via the application of nucleic acid tags to cannabis plants.

Claim(s)

1. A system for tracking the origin of cannabis products and cannabis derivative products comprising: a nucleic acid tag; a marking apparatus; and a nucleic acid tag authentication apparatus; and optionally, a digital data repository wherein the marking apparatus and the nucleic acid tag authentication apparatus are configured to digitally communicate with the digital data repository system; and one or more remote user interfaces to the digital data repository.;
10. A method of tracking the origin of cannabis and cannabis derivative products comprising: applying a nucleic acid tag to a cannabis plant to create a nucleic acid tagged cannabis plant, said tag imparting at least one piece of information about the origin of the cannabis plant; processing the nucleic acid tagged cannabis plant to create nucleic acid tagged cannabis products and/or nucleic acid tagged cannabis derivative products; and interrogating a nucleic acid tagged cannabis product and/or cannabis derivative product to ascertain information from the nucleic acid tag; and optionally, querying a digital data repository for information associated with the DNA tag information, thereby ascertaining the origin of the cannabis product and/or cannabis derivative product;
17. A system of applying a taggant to plant material comprising: a spraying chamber including panels defining an interior for receiving plant material; an attachment assembly adapted to secure the plant material within the spraying chamber; a fogging unit in fluid communication with the spraying chamber; an aqueous supply of taggant solution in fluid communication with the fogging unit, the fogging unit producing a mist from the solution without the use of heat; a mist dispersal device disposed adjacent the fogging unit for disbursing mist produced by the fogging unit to coat the plant material with the nucleic acid tag solution; and a processing device for controlling the operations of the fogging unit and mist dispersal device.;
18. A DNA tag comprising an amplicon of a known DNA sequence imparting high-level data produced by PCR, and an oligonucleotide of a known DNA sequence imparting low-level data produced by oligonucleotide synthesis, wherein the amplicon of a known DNA sequence comprises more nucleotides than the oligonucleotide of a known DNA sequence.
