    I was once in queensland australia and heard a farmer talking about finding dope grafted on to his mango trees could this be true?

    sure why not.More likely somone had a grow bag up there tho.But I believe you could graft it to mango ,wonder if it tasted any different? what a bous snax and ganja on the same tree! cheers hbr

    NOPE. Totally not possible. Mango trees and cannabis comes from 2 different family's so they would not be able to graft. Like wise traits cannot be passed by grafting either.

    A cannabis plant can be grafted onto a hopps plant though. Or another cannabis plant of a different strain(the rest of the plant will grow 1 strain and the grafted section grows another strain they do not mix or give any properties to one another)

    yeah, this is the prevailing wisdom on the subject...but I really wouldnt discount the possibility of herb being able to be grafted to plants outside the cannibaceae (or however thats spelled) family, phyllogenetic relationships are changing almost daily, many plants are related way back, and have evolutionarily diverged...but still maintain many of the same characteristics. Some trials on plants with a similar habit as MJ couldnt hurt, i'll bet SOMETHING would work besides hops. but thats just my two cents.

    I agree with this to some nature. Im sure that there are other plants out there with close enough family relation to cannabis that it could be grafted, I suppose that I should have said that hoppes is the only PROVEN plant to do so right now. I still stand by saying that it isnt possible with a mango tree though, mango trees have a much denser wood/trunk than pot does. generally to graft it has to be a very similar plant both in chararistics as well as the underlying genetic traits. On top of that mango tree branches would have to be fairly small to be able to graft with marijuana. lol

    I ahd a friend cut off the top to some ditchweed and graft a top of a good plant onto that once. it was pointless but he just had heard about grafting and wanted to give it a try.

    haha, we're definitely in agreement about the mango, I just cant see it happening. but...what about something in the cucurbit family?

    Im not sure of any species in that family ca you give examples I can google?
    I think it would have to be a plant that flowers and dies in a warm to cold season like pot does and not live for several years as trees and things like that do.

    What about crossing (Grafting) with Tomato Plant...?
    Maybe the pollen of tomato to marijuana or vise-versa...?
    Possibilities are endless in the world of science.
    But this is always a great subject...

    ^^^ no chance ganj pollen wont pollinate a tomato or any other fruit or vice versa grafting is the sttachment of stems from the same type of plant on the same rootstock i havnt quite got the hang of graftingbut knew a grower years ago with a 4 strain mother plant to keep the numbers down good for the medicinal conosuire ill be interested in any more info pics ect. as i say ive seen 1 but not in a while and cant seem to get them to take well myself

    Intragenetic grafting of cannabis and humulus (hops) is possible (Warmke, Davis 1943, Crombie 1975) since hops and pot are very similar genetically. You will NOT, however, be able to graft hops on a cannabis root stock and get THC in the hops.

    thats why its brilliant for a mother each graft retains its own caracteristica ie a long flower sativa could be grafted next to a short growing indica or whatever if they can be bred they can bve grafted to each other

    no like already stated each graft retains its own genetics you could have a kush, skunk, white widow, ak ect. all on 1 root stock in 1 pot and it is 1 plant for all u lucky bastards with a med card lol
    i was inspired by these The Fruit Salad Tree Company Home Page

    There has never been any evidence, I have read 4 diffrent books on growing and looked all over the internet and you can graft a pot plant/ fruit plant you put it in wont contain traces of thc but the weed still will. Just dosent work. It's like you put a dick on a girl and it's just not gonna work lmao
