About Our CBG Panelists
About Matthias Ghidossi of Swiss Cannabinoid
Founder of Swiss Cannabinoid, Matthias was born in Switzerland and began working in the cannabis industry at a young age. He has a post graduate certificate in horticulture after working around agriculture since a young age. During the late 90s, Matthias worked in the cannabis industry while THC was legalized in Switzerland for a few years, where he worked for some of the largest Swiss producers. In 2015, Matthias decided to begin cannabis breeding with the intention of producing novel non-psychoactive varieties. In 2016, Matthias discovered his first CBG phenotype that has since been tested and developed into Matterhorn CBG. Matthias is currently operating a breeding research program full-time in Switzerland.
