UConn Today ran an article about Associate Professor Jessica Lubell‘s research in the cultivation of hemp for medical purposes. The article said that Lubell, a member of the plant science and landscape architecture faculty, developed a way to maximize the production of Cannabis sativa female flowers, which produce significantly higher quantities of cannabinoids than male flowers.
UConn Today said that UConn will continue to operate the Extension Center in its current building on the former Torrington Campus rent-free through at least 2028. See also ctpost and Hartford Courant.
