i dont know but i want some
All I EVER hear about on ANY site or forum or seed site is this was crossed with that. I was wondering.... has there been any kind of marijuana plant that has been genetically modified, that is... not a hybrid. Genetically modified implies that the genes from one organism have been spliced into the genes of another. Are we playing god with this technology? Or would we get God Bud? Maybe a plant that can withstand strong freezes? Has anyone done it (Lowrider Strain)? Is this an idea that is looked down upon in the stoner culture ? Am I asking the wrong questions and soon be brought in by the man? I understand marijuana is illegal in the US where a majority of this kind of research is done . What do you think??? ....and where can I get some?
looking back at this i realize that my comparison of the lowryder strain and genetically modified cannabis has no backing. Ruderalis is a distinct characteristic that was breed with more potent pot strains to get the thc levels back where they should be. I do still think that it's possible for cannabis to be genticaly modified and that it should be looked into... like corn has been for years now.

Hi guys first post, been lerkin' here for a few months and learned alot so thanks for all the great info everyone.
Anyway, what we have is mixing strains of cannabis to produce the desired results. This is not genetic modification. This is selctive breeding and has been going on for thousands of years with many diffrent animals and plants.
Genetic modification or geneticly enginered plants and animals do exist and the scientists say its perfectly safe, but they say alot of things. They have crossed Goat with spider, monkey with jellyfish and potato with cockroach amungst other things.
I feel this is playing God, I just don't think we are ready to be fooling around with such things. They could cause alergic reactions and pollen is hard to control. Such as Aventis' Starlink corn which was never intended for human consumption and yet the strain has spread and contaminated the worlds corn supply. Even after they destroyed the GE corn (GE = Geneticly enginered). I just don't think these guys know as much as they think they do. Just because we can do a thing does not nessisaraly mean we must do a thing.
That being said there is alot we can learn from GE plants and animals. I just don't think we need to be to hasty.
maybe they could use that stem cell research shit on pot? is that even possible? im fucking stoned man im trying to think of how to do this. I love kush
so you are basically asking if tere has been a weed plant that has had it's gene's changed or altered to make it do desired things? i def. believe there is some of that going around in labratories, do u guys kno what love bugs are? they were a genetically engineered bug that wuz made in a university of florida lab and now are all over florida in the spring, so i kind of think it is playing god and we have to be careful b4 we end up crossing weed with our overused ipod and it takes over the world............
one genetic engineering i would be intersted in would be changing the characteristics of tryhomes to act as spores (like shrooms), so we could grow 100 THC plants! (patent pending)
Aight u rest in the e bushes, ima rob the e 7/11 so we can pay 4 a e bus ticket BUT I CAN GUARANTEE U WE ARE GETTING OUT ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what? grow a giant trichrome???? I think thats enough pot for me tonight i better pass out on that one.
marijuana is a beautiful plant and is fine the way it is. I know a Kush man will understand.
Sinsemilla deserves to be free, just like any other plant or tree
saw a show the other day on discovery about them bringing back the dinosaours with today technologie, they have allready figures out how to genetically modify an ostrage into a feloca raptor .. i was trippin ,fuck have we came along way, think how fast technologie is going and the future!
they can do amazing things with weed if they wanted too..
