hemp seeds & leaves

Thu Sep 14 18:49:48 CDT 1995

I sent this message to both TAXACOM and PL-TAXONOMY. I
apologize for cross-postings.
   For a molecular study on Cannabis cultivars, I am looking for
hemp seeds of certain and documented origin. As I am trying to
discriminate among cultivars with different contents of THC, I
would also need some fresh leaves (5-10 g of just collected and
quickly mailed material) of the same variety to extract DNA and
to measure THC from. However, this is not strictly necessary,
because if I receive seeds I can plant them and obtain material,
even if with some month's delay.
   Of course, as you may understand, documented origins and semi-
wild or ethnically used varieties are indispensable for my study.
   I understand that in some countries leaves, and perhaps also
seeds of hemp are restricted material. I can document my and my
institution's official status in any reasonable way.
    As I do not subscribe to this list, please, reply personally to
me (siniscal at vm.cised.unina.it), because I won't see any message
posted to the list.
    Thanking you in advance

                                    Yours sincerely
