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. From the core principles of genetic selection to the bleeding edge of the tech and beyond, everything you need to know is here: - Tissue culture and micropropagation - Analytics-based phenotype hunting - True genetic stabilization and long-term preservation - The shared history of all cannabis "strains" - Autoflower cannabis for seed cultivation Anyone entering the high-stakes world of commercial cannabis quickly discovers the fog of misinformation and secrecy surrounding even the most basic aspects of cannabis breeding. The authors of this book are experienced industry professionals, passionate about dispelling myths and explaining the science behind not-often-discussed techniques.
