That being said, it’s important to take all these factors into consideration when you begin your garden so that you know what kind of strain is most suitable for you. Landrace and heirloom seeds for example, have been cultivated for centuries and have traits specific to adapting to their native environment. On the other hand, when growing indoors you may want to find a strain that is less pungent, smaller in size and more pest resilient. It is for this reason that you should have a good idea about how you intend to grow your garden before you chose your seeds.
Nowadays, cultivators are able to select desired characteristics of growth, appearance and effect. This can be really useful in finding a strain that’s right for you and your needs.
The main external factors influencing the strength of your bud are: Location (e.g. indoor vs outdoor), growing medium (e.g. soil or hydroponics), nutrient levels, light source, temperature & humidity and carbon dioxide levels.
Genetics also affect the strength of the plant. Genetics are what holds all the information about the plant. How much THC and CBD it produces, how it smells and tastes and how it grows. Cannabis displays a mix of traits from their parent strains just like humans.
Although there are many methods of growing cannabis, they all come with a different set of pros and cons . for example, if you wanted to grow your plant under some of the UVB spectrum, you would either have to find a nice mountain close to the equator or purchase some UVB emitting LEDs. Both of these methods have problems; LED lights are rather expensive, and walking up a mountain to grow your bud will also leave you feeling pretty low on energy.
Determining the strength of cannabis is not always straight forward, once you have have chosen which strain you would like to use, there are also a number of factors which will affect the THC content of the bud.
Stable genetics produce predictable features passed down from parent strains, whereas unstable genetics can often give the offspring unpredictable features which can be difficult to manage.
