We partner with academia and cannabis industry stakeholders to advance the exploration of the cannabis plant and implement science-based research to develop cultivation & post harvest techniques for sustainability, efficiency and profitability.

About : About Us


The Cannabis Research Coalition (CRC), founded by Dr. Allison Justice and Ashley Manning, is a professional group dedicated to advancing cannabis cultivation and post harvest processing. CRC partnered with Clemson University and The Hemp Mine LLC, an industry leader in cannabis genetics and production, to tackle the cultivation and post harvest challenges facing today’s cannabis industry.


Our team brings over 100 years of combined expertise in horticulture, chemistry, plant science, cannabis cultivation, and pharmacology, blending traditional practices with scientific innovation.


Together, we drive scientific discovery, set new standards for the cannabis industry, and foster a sustainable, efficient, and profitable future.

About : Our Values

“We are at an unprecedented time in the history of plant science where we have an incredibly valuable plant for which there is almost zero scientific cultivation research. The opportunities to improve production methods with solid data are vast. It is truly a unique and exciting time to be a horticultural scientist.” 

- Jim Faust, PhD., Clemson University Flowering Physiology Laboratory

About : Text


The CRC combines the resources of cannabis industry stakeholders—including individuals and businesses—to fund academic research that provides practical answers to industry challenges.


Our cooperative research model, inspired by successful horticulture and greenhouse research collaborations, allows members to benefit from pooled resources, gaining access to cutting-edge, science-based research at a fraction of the cost.


By partnering with colleagues, collaborators, and sometimes competitors, our members stay at the forefront of production know-how.
