Crossbreeding in cannabis involves mating distinct plants for desirable traits, creating hybrids with enhanced characteristics such as potency and flavor.
Techniques include selective breeding, backcrossing, and hybridization. Breeders need genetics knowledge to succeed, track parent and offspring traits, and achieve diversity in strains.
It also tailors strains for medicinal purposes. However, it can introduce variability, necessitating further efforts for consistency in future generations.
