What is a Cannabis Cultivar?
A cannabis cultivar, strain, or variety, refers to a specific cultivated type of the cannabis plant. The term “cultivar” emphasizes the fact that these cannabis varieties are products of careful cultivation and selective breeding. Just like any other plant breed, cannabis cultivars can be thought of as distinct genetic lineages within the cannabis species. Desired characteristics include:
- Growth Traits
In the world of cannabis, there are countless varieties available, each with its unique combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other chemical compounds that contribute to its effects and therapeutic properties. These variations in chemical composition give rise to different flavors, aromas, and overall experiences when consumed.
Sativa, Indica, and Hybrids are three distinct categories of cannabis strains that offer unique characteristics and effects. Understanding the differences between these varieties can help individuals make informed decisions when weighing up their options.
- Sativa – Sativa strains are known for their energizing and uplifting effects. These strains are often associated with increased creativity, focus, and sociability. Sativa plants typically have taller and thinner structures with narrow leaves. They are commonly used during the daytime to promote productivity and enhance mood.
- Indica – Indica strains are recognized for their calming and relaxing properties. They are often chosen to alleviate stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Indica plants tend to be shorter and bushier with broader leaves. They are frequently utilized in the evening or before bed to induce a sense of tranquility and aid in sleep.
- Hybrid – Hybrid strains combine the characteristics of both Sativa and Indica varieties. These strains are bred by crossing different cannabis plants to create a blend of effects. Hybrid strains can vary greatly in their dominant traits, offering a wide range of possibilities for users. Some hybrids lean more towards Sativa, providing an uplifted and focused experience, while others lean more towards Indica, delivering a more relaxed and sedating effect.
How Does Crossing Cannabis Strains Work?
When breeders create new cannabis cultivars, they carefully select parent plants with desired traits and crossbreed them to produce offspring with those desirable characteristics. (1) Through repeated breeding and selection, specific traits become more pronounced, resulting in a stable and consistent cultivar.
Two different cannabis plants with desired characteristics are chosen as parent plants. During the crossbreeding process, pollen from the male plant is used to fertilize the female plant’s flowers. This process, known as cross-pollination, allows the genetic material from the male plant to combine with the genetic material of the female plant. As a result, the offspring inherits a combination of traits from both parent plants.
About Exotic Flower
Exotic cannabis flowers encompass a wide range of cultivars that have been selectively bred to possess specific characteristics. These cultivars may exhibit vibrant colors, unique aromas, and exceptional flavors that set them apart from more common cannabis varieties. The cultivation process for these specialty cannabis blossoms often involves meticulous care, attention to detail, and specialized techniques to optimize their growth and development.
One of the key features of exotic cannabis flowers is their unique terpene profile. Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in cannabis that contribute to its distinct aroma and flavor. Each strain has its own combination of terpenes, which not only enhance the overall sensory experience but also contribute to the potential therapeutic benefits. (2) Some common terpenes found in exotic cannabis flowers include myrcene, limonene, pinene, and caryophyllene, each offering different effects ranging from relaxation and stress relief to increased focus and creativity.

Which Exotic Strain is Right for Me?
Exploring the world of exotic cannabis flower can be an exciting journey for those seeking new experiences and potential therapeutic benefits. For recreational users, exotic cannabis flowers offer a pleasurable and enjoyable experience. The effects can vary greatly depending on the strain, with some providing a euphoric and uplifting sensation, while others induce relaxation and tranquility. The wide array of flavors and aromas, ranging from fruity and citrusy to earthy and floral, adds another layer of enjoyment to the experience.
When selecting a strain, it is important to consider not only the Sativa-Indica ratio but also the THC content, CBD levels, and terpene profiles. THC is the psychoactive compound responsible for the euphoric feeling associated with cannabis, while CBD offers potential therapeutic benefits without the intoxicating effects.
