About Us

About Us


Puregene has built one of the largest and most detailed data sets of cannabis characteristics. This, combined with our vast pangenomic sequencing platform and pipeline has allowed us to develop an unprecedented artificial intelligence-driven plant improvement program. Puregene uses predictive breeding instead of genetic modification.

Our approach rapidly guides correct combinations of characteristics to produce varieties tailored to the industries that they will serve. This will fundamentally alter the way in which plants are bred. Puregene’s 20-member R&D team has decoded over 400 individual cannabis characteristics that cover every aspect of its growth, development, and chemical composition. These are the building blocks for a next generation of cannabis with the potential to impact and disrupt myriad industries - pharmaceutical, cosmetic, animal feed, novel food, construction material and many more. On our journey, we aim to advance cannabis by broadly applying our genomic and artificial intelligence-driven approach to fundamentally change plant breeding. Puregene works with partners in Switzerland and globally to employ its cannabis research in support of the changing legal and health frameworks surrounding medical and recreational cannabis, to positively contribute to sustainability, to solve industrial challenges, and to educate the public, industry, and government on the potential of cannabis.

After this short explanation, you will understand the importance of DNA for plant breeding!

We are committed to improve cannabis genetics in the long-term for a positive future of this industry, innovating and developing what customers need and want.

About Us


Transformative, comprehensive research enables us to inspire a new cannabis landscape, to:

Partner with producers to breed financially and environmentally sustainable varieties.

Assist regulators with critical data and provide proper trait licensing services.

Provide consumers with reliable products and medicines, that enhance life and business in countless new ways.

Trait Licensing

To avoid a scenario where your amazing idea, that you have poured your money, time, and life into, is stolen or copied, we have invested extensively into legal protection of our traits and varieties.

Tailored Varieties

Create the exact plant you want with selected traits. Puregene’s technology allows the performance of single trait introgressions into a variety, all the way to building a new stable variety from scratch, based on your particular needs.


The trait diversity of the cannabis species is unprecedented. Through our research, based on meticulously collected data and its evaluation, we initiate necessary change and continue to open new doors to new markets.


Hemp has the potential to disrupt some of the largest global industries and Puregene is on track to harness its full potential through technology.

Our Products – Custom Varieties


Puregene’s offerings are a world first in new variety and cannabinoid development, for the advancement of human and environmental sustainability. By partnering with us, you can benefit from Puregene’s unique technology pipeline that harnesses the predictive power of plant genomics for applications related to most major industries. This technology pipeline uses computational biology and machine learning to predict and assemble traits, and custom “tailor” elite varieties and traits for the global cannabis and hemp market. Because of the countless ways in which these can be applied to ensure significant advancement in industries not considered before, we have most likely already perfected possibilities you haven’t imagined yet.

Our Breeding Platforms

Our Breeding Platforms are undoubtedly superior to other platforms in the market and unique, since all cannabis producers are limited by the genetics they have on hand. So, their businesses are created based on the genetics they receive. Puregene enables breeders and industries to create businesses based on the genetics they want – both now and in the future.
