Cannabis Breeding: How are New Strains Created?

When you see our list of strains on HighClub or visit the Leafly Strain Database, you'll quickly realize that there's a treasure trove of strains available out there.

When we breed two strains, we get hybrid strains. When cannabis breeders embark on combining strains, their main mission is to strengthen or purify strains or to combine the traits of strains. They also do this to enhance aroma potency, or to increase yields among many other reasons. Before growing and breeding cannabis, you first need to know the origin of your seeds and what they were crossed with. If seed sellers can't give you with the genetic information of the...

7 Common Mistakes when Making Cannabis Edibles

For many years, I made cannabis edibles at home. Even if I made several mistakes along the way, I was able to create a final outcome that was good enough to do the job. Little did I know that I could improve my edibles massively if I made a few tweaks to the preparation process. While this improved the flavour and consistency of the product, it also saved me lots of time and money. All I needed to do was to listen to a real pro. A few months ago, I attended a cooking class dubbed, "puff, pass and bake," led by chef Torrin Panico. He was instrumental in teaching us how to cook cannabis oil, showing us the missteps that most people make along the way. Once I understood how decarboxylation and infusion work, I...

13 Reasons Marijuana is Better than Alcohol

13 reasons marijuana is better than alcohol When it comes to weed, I’m considered a late bloomer. I hadn't tried pot until my last years in college when I made the decision to ditch alcohol for marijuana. Back then, I would always get in trouble when drinking alcohol. It would entail anything from picking up massive fights with my roommate to battling headache inducing hangovers and it became clear that alcohol wasn't just the right stimulant for me. Before long, I found myself picking weed over alcohol every time I had a chance to make the choice. Just like me, there are many other people who have ditched alcohol completely after having tried weed. In 1977, a study found that 24% of Americans said they had smoked weed at least once in their lives. In 2013, that number...
