Caps or Stems: Which is more potent?
The anchor of this event is our potency testing competition which is the first and only of its kind. Here at Oakland Hyphae, we’ve collected data from some of the best cultivators in the world, with results released to the public on 4/20. Our goal is to spark deabte and inspire informed conversation backed by science.
No fluff, just results.
"We have been running potency tests so we can answer common questions and have smarter conversations on fungi medicine."
