Know Your Grow™ Program

Steep Hill uses a unique combination of chemical and genetic tests to help identify qualities before you plant. Using our suite of analytics, we can help growers find top phenotypes. We sex test seedlings as early as the second leaf set to determine if it’s a male; we assess whether seedlings have any unique genetic markers and then use an HPLC to determine THC/CBD ratio. Once the flowers are developed we can test to determine optimum harvest time and then test matured flowers for potency once curing is complete.
