Hybrid weed, Cannabis breeding and growing is an area that has evolve over the decades. Firstly, Marijuana prohibition change the way that cannabis breeders and growers conduct their research and work. Secondly, There were notorious strains of marijuana such as the original Skunk Number 1 that were too pungent in smell.
Firstly, During a time of heighten prohibition amid the early seventies through the mid-eighties, the scent of Skunk Bud alone was enough to get somebody bust in a grow. Secondly, You could smell it for blocks away from where it was being grown. Thirdly, In order to combat the smell, the skunk bud was breed with other strains of marijuana to leave the potency but take away the pungency of the aroma. Further, This type of crossbreeding is what gave birth to hybrids.
Firstly, Now there is a difference between a hybrid and a phenotype. secondly, A phenotype will start off as a particular strain but end up being something completely different. Thirdly, A great example of phenotypes would be Exodus Cheese AKA UK cheese. Further, It originally start off as a Skunk seed but when it finish growing it was Skunk no more. It gave birth to a phenotype called U.K. Cheese. Hybrid cannabis strains are create by crossing two or more strains together in hopes of creating the perfect strain of marijuana.
