Phenotype Flowers

This post provides a basic understanding of cannabis flower phenotypes and offers some information on the phenotypes cultivated by GrowHealthy. If you’re already a phenotype expert, you may want to skip this one.

What Is A Phenotype? 

First, let’s define the word phenotype. A phenotype, in all things, not just cannabis, is “the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.”1

Cannabis flower phenotypes share the same genetic cross but have varying characteristics resulting from different environmental factors during cultivation, such as light.

GrowHealthy Phenotypes 

Our Master Grower Series™ strain Mandarin Sunset is a great example of a phenotype. This strain crosses Herijuana and Orange Skunk to create a powerful Indica. Our Head of Cultivation selected Mandarin Sunset as his favorite Herijuana x Orange Skunk phenotype because of its superior trichome structure, terpene profile, aroma, and tasting notes. However, GrowHealthy also offers several other Herijuana x Orange Skunk phenotypes including, Citrus Slice, Kinno, Mandelo, and Mikan. All these strains are related to Mandarin Sunset but have unique characteristics and varying cannabinoid content, terpene profile, taste, aroma, and effects.

It is even possible for phenotypes of the same cross to vary by type. For example, GrowHealthy’s Good Dawg is a cross of Good Medicine x Stardawg. One phenotype expresses characteristics of a Balance: Hybrid strain while the other is a Relief: 1:1, which provides an equal 1:1 THC: CBD ratio. 

As a best practice, GrowHealthy will now sell all phenotypes under different names. Labeling phenotypes in this way gives patients more control as they can consistently select the phenotype that provides the best medicinal relief for their symptoms.
