What does a cannabis strain family look like? Weed strain families are similar to human families in a number of ways. The male pollen fertilizes the female pistils and produces offspring, or seeds that combine both parents’ genes. While modern humans prefer random love matches, cannabis breeders select marijuana mates for traits they want to see in the kids, like pungent aroma and high THC potency. Breeders choose to cross certain marijuana strains (or “crosses”, or “hybrids”) repeatedly, creating large numbers of diverse varieties that share some parents’ genetics.
