Cultivators nowadays are capable of choosing the desired characteristics of appearance, growth, and effect of cannabis. This proves to be very helpful in finding the strain for you and your needs.
Locating the strength of cannabis is not that simple and easy as, once you choose which strain you want to use, you also need to keep in mind that the factors which affect the THC content of the bud.
The main external factors that influence your bud’s strength include temperature and humidity, light source, nutrient levels, location (indoor or outdoor), carbon dioxide levels and the growing medium (hydroponics or soil).
Another factor is genetics, which also affects the strength of the plant, as it holds all the information about the plant. The way it smells and tastes, how it grows and how much CBD and THC it produces. Surprisingly just like humans, cannabis reflects a mixture of traits from their parent strain.
Stable genetics have predictable features that are passed down by the parent strains. The unstable genetics, on the other hand, reflect unpredictable features, passed down by the parent strain which can be difficult to manage.
You cannot just randomly select cannabis to grow in your garden. You need to know first what kind is most suitable for you. For centuries, heirloom and landrace seeds have been cultivated and their traits are specifically adaptive to their native environment. Whereas, the ones that are grown indoors, they are smaller in size, have are less pungent and more pest resilient.
That is why before choosing the seed, you should have a good, clear idea of the way you intend to grow in your garden. Here are the 5 most talked about cannabis stains that you should try.
