The two species of the Cannabis genus that are most commonly grown are Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa
Cannabis sativa is an annual herbaceous flowering plant indigenous to eastern Asia but now of cosmopolitan distribution due to widespread cultivation. It has been cultivated throughout recorded history, used as a source of industrial fiber, seed oil, food, recreation, religious and spiritual moods and medicine. Each part of the plant is harvested differently, depending on the purpose of its use. The species was first classified by Carl Linnaeus in 1753. The word “sativa” means things that are cultivated.
Cannabis indica is an annual plant in the Cannabaceae family. It is a putative species of the genus Cannabis. Whether it and Cannabis sativa are truly separate species is a matter of debate. The Cannabis indica plant is cultivated for many purposes; for example, the plant fibers can be converted into cloth. Cannabis indica produces large amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The higher concentrations of THC provide euphoric and intoxicating effects making it popular for use both as a recreational and medicinal drug.
Hybrids In order for there to be genetic stability in a marijuana strain the breeder has to go through selection and breeding, pinpointing the dominant and recessive genes within the two strains being crossed. After analyzing offspring with preferred traits a breeder the breeder will select the preferred traits and continue to breed those offspring to create the desired final product. Selection is a crucial process to create a strain, especially if looking for something with specific 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.
