Montana Biotech is proud to introduce an at home THC testing kit to the cannabis consuming public. Grow Buddy™ is a THC testing kit a person could use at home to analyze their own medical marijuana for the comparative presence of cannabinoids! Cannabis is a plant that has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties. Now you can test for those cannabinoids at home!
Grow Buddy™ is designed to give maximum results with the minimum of effort. The Grow Buddy™ system is a comparative test made to facilitate the grower, patient, caregiver, or connoisseur to be able to test for cannabinoids at home! Grow Buddy™ was created around a T.L.C. method to help ensure ease of use for ALL ability levels.
The control in this test was ~17% THC by volume… You can tell the size of the dots for Connie Chung (A) and (B) are larger. You can draw you own conclusions!
If you are a patient, you now how hard it is to nail down exactly what strains are best for what, or how to even find the information you need to make those educated decisions. Find a variety/strain YOU like for YOUR condition, test it at home, if it is not already tested, and know what to look for in YOUR medication. Green Crack means very little to a patient who has not used cannabis in their adult lives, but Grow Buddy™ can help that patient know why they like Green Crack for what ails them.
Find/discover varieties or strains that have novel combinations of cannabinoids! Compare relative levels of THC, CBD, CBN, CBC in varieties or strains you know and trust!
Grow Buddy™ will provide an individual the opportunity to select amongst their strains “THE ONE” best suited for further analytical testing by a lab you know and trust. Keep the accuracy of the ever increasing number of potency analysis labs in check! Have an idea of what you have before you spend the TIME and MONEY to get it tested in a lab.
Grow Buddy™ is backed by a potency testing lab with experience in the field of cannabis quality testing. Montana Biotech’s Grow Buddy™ is intended for anyone ready to take their medicine to the next level!
The Grow Buddy™ at home THC testing kit is just $100.00 plus $3.50 for shipping and handling. Order yours today!
Grow Buddy™ is a T.L.C. based method for analyzing cannabis for the presence of THC, CBD, CBN that ANYONE can perform at home! The Test is quick and fun! Ff you have brewed beer, wine, if you consider your self a “good” cook, you can perform a T.L.C. test for THC, CBD, CBN.

The use of Cannabis is illicit in numerous countries and the increasing consumption has led to a multiplication of scientific studies. New methods of planar chromatography such as Automated Multiple Development (AMD) and Optimum Performance Laminar Chromatography (OPLC) techniques can be used as a substitute for the traditional TLC for the identification and quantification of the Indian hemp components. Each method offers its own advantage: high resolution with neither diffusion nor spot stretching for AMD, speed, efficiency and the possibility of working in semi-preparative mode for OPLC.

Plant DNA Collection Kit™
Montana Biotech is proud to introduce the Plant DNA Collection Kit™. This kit has many functions! The small time patient, to the large scale farmer can gain from this kit / service!
In today’s environment of high competition in the medical marijuana industry, a way to distinguish what you have from your competitors is essential! This kit can be used to create a unique genetic profile of your hybrid! This PCR, gel electrophoresis based test can provide you a “picture” of YOUR plants genetic make-up! With this info in hand, it is easier to obtain a trademark on your variety / strain with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Another advantage that can be gained with the Plant DNA Collection Kit™ is TIME! TIME from seed, to clone, to harvest! At some point we all need to start from seed, whether it is starting a new variety / strain, or creating your own hybrid. It would be great to be able to weed the males from the females to increase productivity! This can be obtained with male / female sexing! Male / female sexing is a PCR based test. 1-2 weeks after germination of the seed, KNOW if it’s male or female by its GENES. NO GUESS WORK. By time that seedling is ready for cloning, KNOW that it is a FEMALE, and move on!! Maintain the phenotype without having to re-vegetate the plant, our having unwanted clones reducing cost!

After over 150 applications for trademarks under the U.S. Patent Office’s proposed “Processed plant matter for medicinal purposes, namely medical marijuana” category, the agency has closed the category due to the, shall we say, ridiculous response. The official reason is because the category was redundant with others, such as business names and manufacturing processes.
Many of the applications for trademarks fall under that former category, such as Colorado’s ReLeaf Center and Total Health Concepts, while some were for specific service names, like Nug Source (an ad company). Foods incorporating marijuana were also a big item for trademark patent, including the now infamous “Dr. Canna Cola.”
The well-known Meyer Keegan from Colorado Springs might take the award for largest number of trademarks and patents applied for by a single individual in the now-defunct medical marijuana category. Keegan applied for trademarks on many terms, such as “ganja,” “Maui Waui,” “Bubblegum,” “Island Sweet Skunk,” and other common strains and smoker terms.
Although the category has been stricken, businesses in the medical marijuana and related fields can still apply for patents and trademarks on their business names, proprietary product names, brands, etc. just as any other business does. The removal of the controversial “medical marijuana” category from the Trademark and Patent Office does not preclude these businesses from operating as would any other business in any other industry.
The so-far undecided patents that were filed with the TPO before closure of the category are still being vetted. Most agree that while it was a nice try, most of Keegan’s attempts at claiming ownership of common names will probably fail. So you won’t have to change your business or product names to avoid a lawsuit for using words like “ganja.”

Owner/Lead Researcher of Montana Biotech.
Mr. Lacerenza graduated from R.C.C. (Rogue Community College) with an associates degree in June 2004 after working for 2 years in the physical science department at R.C.C. as a student laboratory technician.
Joe enrolled in the PSPP department of the college of agriculture in their bachelor of science in Plant Biotechnology at Montana State University in 2005. Joe was published twice as the first author in two peer reviewed publications, one in Cereal Chemistry, 2006, and the other in The Oxford Journal of Experimental Botany, 2010.
In 2007 he was awarded the Spirit of Ethanol Award from EPAC (Ethanol Producers And Consumers) for his research in biofuels. Joe worked as a student and research assistant for four years in the PSPP department of the college of agriculture, MSU. His passion for plant biotechnology began when he started experimenting with marijuana cultivation.
Unfortunately, in the U.S. it was hard to discover the true scientific attributes to the plant he always yearned to learn about. For instance, a student could go to school today with the sole intent to go and work with peas, like Mendel once did, but not weed.
