Description

There is a rich informal taxonomy of Cannabis strains with exotic and evocative names. How do these breeds reflect the genetic relationships among different strains, and how do those genetic relationships reflect the chemical properties of the specific plants? This is critical information for the commercialization of cannabis, and there is an active private sector investigation into the murky genetics of cannabis.
