Medicann have been actively breeding marijuana varieties for over 18 years. The selection and breeding of high grade medicinal strains is at the core of our organisation and our dedicated breeding team are constantly striving to increase potency, yield and medicinal benefits for all.
New strains take many years to get off the ground, seed breeding and selection of the seed takes time, especially if you want to get it right.
It is vital that our breeders have a constant dialogue with our product development and caregivers in order to determine the direction of a breeding programme. Of course, it is the feedback and knowledge of our patrons which ultimately determine what we breed, and their collaboration has been and still is vital.
Further plant breeding combines an element of science, inspiration and creativity. Medicann’s dedicated MMJ breeders use their understanding of a wide variety of botanical knowledge, as well as the genus cannabis plant.
Another exciting positive about our breeders is their keen sense of commitment to the breeding programs, using their knowledge and intuition to continually develop new understandings relating to the world of cannabis genetics.
Here at Medicann, a breeding programme usually starts with screening a wide range of existing cultivars, and land race strains looking for plants with desirable characteristics. Individual plants showing certain desirable phenotypes are selected and then pollinated, this process is repeated over and over until a stable form of the phenotype that is required has been bred. It is a very long process and can take years before a new variety is released.
We at Medicann live eat and breathe medicinal Marijuana, we know the plant can ease so much suffering throughout the globe and we know for a fact that currently only the surface has been scratched as to the true potential of healing that the genus Cannabis has to offer mankind.
