LeBlanc CNE began in 2012 when Coleman Whiting asked his father Jerry Whiting for help transitioning from Big Pharma to cannabis to treat his seizure disorder. Father and son embarked on a journey together that resulting in them collecting CBD-rich strains, learning how to make preparations like tinctures, and more.
LeBlanc specializes in CBD-rich cannabis strains as well as landrace (heirloom) strains. We provide growers with seeds and clones, and support breeders in their efforts.
Many medical marijuana patients seek strains with significant amounts of CBD (cannabidiol). A high CBD strain is one with at least 4% CBD. Popular examples include Harlequin, Sour Tsunami #3, The Remedy, Cannatonic and many, many others. LeBlanc CNE has an extensive collection of medical cannabis genetics and has helped many grow these strains themselves.
Jerry is continuing the work Coleman inspired. He does new product development focusing on whole plant extractions. He’s known for his formulations of tinctures, topicals, and edibles. He has a podcast done in conjunction with Pam Dyer of Butterfly Sessions, is a regular speaker at Hempfest and CannaCon, lectures widely, wrote the introduction to Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails and Tonics, and writes software for the cannabis community.
LeBlanc CNE is active in The Cannabis Alliance and works closely with Project CBD abd many others in the cannabis community both locally and nationally.
