Glossary B

Here are some advanced terms you should know for breeding.

Calyx… The whorl of sepals of a flower collectively forms the outer floral envelope or layer of the perianth enclosing and supporting the developing bud; usually green.

Clone… An organism descended asexually from a single ancestor, such as a plant produced by layering or a polyp produced by budding.Pollen… The fine powder like material consisting of pollen grains that is produced by the anthers of seed plants. Potency… The quality or state of being potent. strength/efficacy/effectiveness

Recessive… Tending to go backward or recede. Of or relating to a trait that is expressed only when the determining allele is present in the homozygous condition.

Resin… Trichomes come in three different types, Bulbous, Capitate-Sessile and Capitate-Stalked.THC… Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol & delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol – THC mimics the action of anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced naturally in the body, which binds with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain to produce the ‘high’ associated with marijuana. THC possesses high UV-B(280-315 nm) absorption properties.

We will also discuss CBD and CBN in harvesting. Trichomes… Cannabis resin glands.Vegetation… The process of growth in plants, prior to producing flowers/blooms/fruits

Green Room – Vegetation room or cycle

Bloom Room – Flowering Room or Cycle

Homozygous – An individual possessing (receiving from parents) identical alleles for a trait is said to be homozygous or pure for that trait, e.g. plant with RR alleles is homozygous for the seed shape. A homozygous always breeds true for that trait.

Capitate Stalk-Botany: forming a head like mass or dense cluster, as the flowers of plants in the composite family. Enlarged and globular at the tip.

Dominant – Of, relating to, or being an allele that produces the same phenotypic effect whether inherited with a homozygous or heterozygous allele.  said of an allele which by itself alone will produce a particular phenotype regardless of which other allele may be present on the other matching chromosome of the diploid pair; thus it takes only one copy of the chromosome to cause a dominant trait to be expressed in the phenotype.

Genome – the total genetic information possessed by an individual, a breed or a species.   Below are links to reference material: Glossary A – Terms you should know.
