Response to Mnemosyne (Reply #21)

44. Sorry. I thought you were focussed only on the immediate impact

on the existing crop. The long term viability of the strain would only be effected if you used the seeds from the cross pollination.

The genetics of the weed at that time would not be altered. The only thing to be altered would be the transfer of growth from THC production to seed production thus reducing the quantities of THC and producing seedy weed.

You could even take cuttings from the cross pollinated pot plants and the genetics would remain pretty much constant. (Obviously the seeds created by the cross would be worthless.) The next crop created from those cuttings would produce basically the same quality pot as the original pot plants had the potential to have.

My apologies for not understanding your question completely.
