Cannabis Breeding

Let’s talk about sex. Not human sex, but the science of the cannabis plant – how it procreates and how you, the grower, can get involved for fun and profit. There’s no shortage of books covering how to grow your own, but Cannabis Breeding teaches you how to create your own stable, genetically unique lines of cannabis. Cannabis Breeding isn’t just a technical manual, it’s a fresh, energetic take on the genetic history and future of cannabis; not just the plant’s origins and the story of its global spread, but the history of how cannabis, as we know it, got that way. Cannabis genetics continue to change. Cannabis Breeding takes stock of what growers can do to preserve what’s good about the plant, while also chasing what’s new. The book covers material other cultivation manuals don’t, providing a deep but accessible primer on the theory and practice of cannabis breeding that will inform the novice and educate experienced breeders on the latest advancements in technology and methodology.
