In an effort to innovate and improve their products, Mendocino Clone Company (MCC) is joining the EMTRI Project, a decentralized cannabis supply chain community.
“We believe that by joining the EMTRI decentralized community, we can provide an additional level of transparency and trust for our clients,” said Jed Davies, CEO of MCC.
What happened: By including EMTRI’s Global Compliance Applications’ blockchain-based solutionMCC seeks to lead nursery members within the ecosystem to certify the authenticity, genetics and batch of each of its mother plants and clones for the 2023 season and beyond.
This movement allows MCC to document the early stages of a cannabis plant’s journey to becoming a premium product for consumers based on gram weight of flowers.
The program assigns each mother plant and its offspring, known as clones, a “batch certificate”—a term coined by Eric Kennedy, a founding member of EMTRI. The certificate, a self-generated smart contract placed on each batch of clones, provides clones with their own unique identification block created by the nursery and linked to the blockchain.

By verifying the authenticity of their clones as well as their genetic lineage through this innovative method, licensed cultivators purchasing cannabis clones from MCC will automatically qualify to unlock EMTRI token rewards. And get higher rates for participating as “truth tellers” in a blockchain project.
“We are excited to be the first in the United States to adopt cutting-edge technology like this in the cannabis industry,” said Scott Zarnes, co-founder of EMTRI Corp. and longtime cultivator. “We believe this has the potential to revolutionize the way the industry operates and we are proud to be leading the charge.”
EMTRI tokens can be swapped for US digital coins by accessing the Uniswap Decentralized Exchange (DEX), resulting in a passive income within the DeFi global system.
Beginning in February the first round of batch certificated clones will be made available with a feature release of MCC’s anticipated “Lemond Lung Slapper,” a first generation seed genetic from breeding partner Mendocino Seed Company.
