Pure sativas are relatively tall reaching as high as 4. Pure indica varieties are shorter and bushier, have wider leaflets. They are often favored by indoor growers for their size. Sativas bloom later than indicas , often taking a month or two longer to mature. The subjective effects of sativas and indicas are said to differ, but the ratio of tetrahydrocannabinol THC to cannabidiol CBD in most named drug varieties of both types is similar averaging about Sativa is known for being a more of a head high, energizing strain where psychoactivity is more common, whereas indica , is known for being more of a body high that helps pain and also used as a sedative.
The informal designation sativa and indica may have various, controversial meanings. Morphologically, the name sativa designates tall plants with narrow leaves, while indica refers to short plants with wide leaves. There is an increasing discussion whether the existing paradigm of the difference between species adequately represents the variability found within the genus Cannabis. There has also been a recent movement  to characterize strains based on their reported subjective effects.
For example, WoahStork has used machine learning algorithms to classify strains into six Distinct Activity groups. In addition to pure indica , sativa , and ruderalis varieties, hybrid varieties with varying ratios of these three types are common. These hybrid varieties exhibit traits from both parental types. There are also commercial crossbred hybrids which contain a mix of both ruderalis, indica or sativa genes, and are usually autoflowering varieties.
These varieties are bred mostly for the medicinal cannabis market, since they are not very appreciated by recreational cannabis users because ruderalis varieties are lower in THC and impart a slightly unpleasant taste. Autoflowering cannabis varieties have the advantage of being discreet due to their small stature.
They also require shorter growing periods, as well as having the additional advantage that they do not rely on a change in the photoperiod to determine when to flower. Breeding requires pollinating a female cannabis plant with male pollen. Although this occurs spontaneously and ubiquitously in nature, the intentional creation of new varieties typically involves selective breeding in a controlled environment.
New Research Shows All Marijuana Strains Basically The Same
When cannabis is cultivated for its psychoactive or medicinal properties, male plants will often be separated from females. This prevents the fertilization of the female plants, either to facilitate sinsemilla flowering or to provide more control over which male is chosen. Pollen produced by the male is caught and stored until it is needed.
When a male plant of one strain pollinates a female of another strain, the seeds will be F1 hybrids of the male and female. These offspring will not be identical to their parents. Instead, they will have characteristics of both parents. Repeated breeding results in certain characteristics appearing with greater regularity.
It is impossible for a hermaphrodite to create any male-only seeds.
A hermaphrodite may create female only seeds and hermaphrodite seeds. Also the female-only seeds may carry the hermaphrodite trait. Hybridization is the process of plants and animals breeding. Natural wind currents help speed up this hybridization process and promotes a positive growth. Some plants produce many seeds while some produce little to none depending on how it is bred.
If seeds are produced traits from both the original parents will be expressed. Due to the large genetic diversity, different geographical climates and environments has caused there to be an wide range of strains and properties. THC is associated with the high part of the plant because it is psychoactive. However, CBD isn't psychoactive and has medicinal properties.
While on the other hand CBD is the component that has a greater medicinal value for people not wanting the high feeling. Both benefit medicinally for patients and can be adjusted to any preferred ratio.
That is why hemp material can not produce any psychoactive effect since it has not gone through its process. In order for there to be genetic stability within a marijuana strain the breeder has to go through selection and breeding, pin pointing the dominant and recessive genes within the two strains being crossed. After analyzing offspring with the preferred traits a breeder is looking for, the breeder will select the preferred traits and continue to breed those offspring to create the desired final product.
Selection is a crucial process for a breeder to create a strain, especially if a client is looking for something with specific plant traits the breeder has to ensure that the hybrid's genetic traits have been closed in enough so unwanted traits aren't expressed in future harvests. In a retail market that is decriminalised such as in The Netherlands , where wholesale production is illegal but prosecutions are not always enforced because of the contradiction of the law that is recognised by the courts,  competition puts pressure on breeders to create increasingly attractive varieties to maintain market share.
Breeders give their strains distinct and memorable names in order to help differentiate them from their competitors' strains, although they may in fact be very similar. Popular strains are incorporated into new hybrids, which often bear a similar name to their parent. Don't have an account yet?
