Most of the marijuana pictures below are the result of extensive breeding, and creation of hybrids
by interbreeding of marijuana plants with the desired charateristics. Each generation of plant
builds on the characteristics of it's parents.
This can take many generations to acuire the desired features. Some of the well known Amsterdam seed suppliers are reputed to breed 1000 plants at a time, pick the best 50 plants, breed them with each other, and then starting the process again with another 1000 plants of the new genetic mix.
"Marijuana plants inherit their genetic characteristics from their sets of parents. Natural heredity laws define why offspring inherit different traits from the same parents. These laws assist breeders to forecast the number of offspring that stand to inherit a specific trait. Anybody who is serious about breeding has a good background in the laws of heredity. Itís essential.
Inbreeding establishes a pure breed. A pure breed has consistent chromosomes. That is, the genetic makeup of offspring is relatively uniform. This true or pure breed is necessary so common growth characteristics may be established. If the plants are not a pure breed, it will be impossible to predict the outcome of the hybrid plant. After the 4th to 6th generation of inbreeding, negative characteristics, like low potency, legginess and lack of vigor tend to dominate. Inbreeding is necessary to establish a true breed, but has been shied away from after the strain has been established".
