The Importance Of Cannabis Genetics

When growing marijuana, the genetics of a strain may be one of the most important factors in deciding whether you have a chronic Grade A or secondary strain so you can't pay anyone to smoke.

Genetic engineering how and why

For cultivation, Michigan marijuana genetics will make a major contribution to determining plant size, color, strength, resistance to pests and fungi, smell, taste, yield and overall production of cannabinoids and terpenes.

All these traits vary from line to line based on the genotype or genetic code that frames the attributes of the line. This code is then expressed in terms of the strain phenotype or physical manifestation of the strain genotype. 

It is equally important if you smoke. Understanding genetics will help you decide which strain will produce the effect you want. There are still purebred strains that are sure to survive for decades. 

Most of the lines we know today are strategically hybridized to create new strains and improve previous strains with the most desired properties. What is the basis of genetics and why is it important to reproduce and smoke?

As the number of cultivators increased, so did strain hybridization. The unique strain that produces high levels of cannabinoids, terpenes and in any production is the holy grail of producers.
