41. Perhaps I should clarify

The inherent quality of the THC from the pot plant would remain constant.

However, due to the cross pollination from hemp the pot plant would be fertilized thus creating potentially a ratty harvest of very seedy pot. And since the pot has been fertilized the pot plant shifts it's energy to seed production rather than THC.

Yes the pot will still have potent THC but the concentrations of the THC will be greatly diminished due to the seed production. So basically if a pot crop got heavily dusted with hemp pollen the pot crop's overall quality, usability and value would be severely diminished.

My point was only from the immediate crop being ruined and not the long term viability of the pot strain as long as seeds created by the cross were not used.

It's not a dilution of the genetics of the pot plant but rather an altering of it's growth function from THC production to seeds that is the main problem with growing the two related plant species in close proximity of one another.
