Year after year, each time they plowed that honkin’ old gray projector cart in…

The Clone Wars

Share

Written by Mowgli Holmes, PhD  Today, most commercially available cannabis is grown from clones rather than seeds. Cloning is the process whereby a grower takes cuttings from a mature plant and roots them, allowing them to grow into new plants that are genetically identical to their “mother” plant. Most important agricultural crops are either grown from seeds or by cloning—but rarely by both methods. It’s yet another curiosity of the…
