Our Humulus Japonicus is also called Humulus Kaly. This is Japanese Hops, which has been used for over 20 years in experimental grafting for Cannabis. Compared with regular Beer hops, the Kalyhops grafts well with Cannabis and has been adapted for this specific purpose. You can both graft the Hops onto Cannabis and the other way Cannabis on Hops. The basic idea behind the Grafting project is that Cannabis and Hops are the closest relatives in the Cannabaceae family, thus the high compatibility with the Japanese Hop. Our Breeder Kalyseeds aka Dr Kaly has used these Hops since the early 2000ś and continuously selected plants, which performed well as grafts and rootstocks as well as selected plants according to his vision of the horizontal gene transfer. Horizontal gene transfer is a mechanism where two plants exchange genetic information through contact points such as graftings. This phenomenon has been well documented scientifically and for example, the tobacco industry has used it successfully to create a hybrid of two non-compatible tobacco varieties.
