How are different types of weed made?

From Super Silver Haze to Green Gelato to Strawberry Banana Kush. All different strains with their own effect. On the menu of Coffeeshop De Kade alone there are more than thirty types of weed and hash. But how is it possible that there are different kinds of cannabis? 

Most of the cannabis strains you can get today are created through a process called breeding. Cannabis can grow almost anywhere, and nuances have emerged in its growth pattern, like its smell, color and taste over the past thousands of years. Breeding involves crossing certain desirable characteristics with the desirable characteristics of other species. 

The ultimate goal is to combine all desirable characteristics into one new strain. This new variety has a new gene profile that is expressed in a new taste, smell, appearance and specific medicinal effects. This is also called a new genotype. 

Basically, it’s all about trial and error. What happens if you breed an uplifting Green Gelato with a mellow Super Silver Haze? Well, you can try it yourself
