Best Cannabis Cross Strains

Cross-breeding two strains is a bit more complex than just putting the plants together in a candlelit room with some sexy music playing. It's a bit more complex tha that if if you want a stellar cross-strain, although Gregor Mendel's principles of inheritance still applies. Cross-strains or cross-breeds are very common because of the benefits of inheritance. The combination of traits from two different genetics can yield terrific results making a new strain more fruity or more relaxing. The possibilities to create a brand new strain are endless because each new generation of the cross-breed has its own unique characteristics, blended together from it's parents. The difficulty in breeding a great strain requires lots of plants and recognizing desirable traits from the plants in which you want to breed. The process requires so many plants because out of one hundred plants, maybe only five to ten will be worthwhile; meaning they have the desired traits for a successfull cross-breed. An experienced breeder has the intuition to recognize things like vigor, strength, and other traits like taste, smell, and effect. Much like an artist that combines several shades of blue to paint the perfect sky, a breeder knows what desirable traits to breed the perfect cross-strain.

Th more popular cross strains, such as those of Girl Scout Cookie heritage, have found their way to dispensaries commanding higher prices because of their popular traits. Girl Scout Cookies is a combination of OG Kush with Durban Poison. Durban Poison is a very popular landrace that originated in South Africa, specifically around the port of Durban. It happens to be our favorite strain becuase of the intense lemon flavor, the scent is overpowering with citrus. That's because of the high concentration of limonene, a terpene well known for elevated mood and stress relief. It's a sativa, so it's very uplifting, but the best part is how clear the high is. It gives such clear focus that you could write an entire book in one sitting. The origins of OG Kush are rather murky, however, its prevalence is high among most dispensaries. It's become a classic staple, and many cross-breeds contain OG Kush phenotype.
