Basic Breeding Terminology
Three types based on cannabinoids. CBD Dominant | CBD:THC | THC Dominant
The genetic composition of the plant that defines its type of growth.
The visible physical characteristics and traits of the plant.
P1 & P2 refer to the two different male and female Parent Plants (P1 x P2 = F1)
F1 is the First Fillial Generation produced by the Parent Plants (F1 x F1 = F2)
S1 is a Self Pollinated female plant, where the plant produces a male flower.
BX is backross to earlier generations of the same plant, either a parent or clone
Phenoptypical Characteristics and Traits
Colour, Height, Sex, Shape, Smell, Size, and Structure are the most common phenotypical variations.
Effects of Environment on Plants
Location of where a plant is grown compared to where it was native can sometimes make it seem that they are two completely different cultivars, even though they came from the same parents. Environmental differences can be drastic and affect things such as colour, flavour, resin production, size, and smell. This is a combination of variation between climates and the soil food web.
