Breeding

Synonyms:
Cultivation

Cannabis cultivation

Breeding[ˈbriːdɪŋ]

Definition:

In botany, plant breeding is the science of altering a plant’s traits to achieve desirable characteristics. Cannabis cultivators have been crossing cannabis plants to produce the strains we enjoy today.

Breeding cannabis and keeping a good pedigree alive is not a skill experts solely possess. Some growers who have mastered the fundamental principles and achieved high-level cultivating abilities can switch from grower to breeder. It is relatively simple to create F1 seeds and hybrids. Home gardeners generated the majority of the cannabis breeds that have become popular today.
