variety or cultivar?

i'm wondering if the MJ "varieties" are really "cultivars"

I'd say the varieties are hybrids of the cultivars going back to actual land race strains

some varieties are.  Like the original cheese plant was a cultivar of a skunk#1 cross.  The same is likely true of anything that's only available through a cutting

ya cultivar just means its been bred or artificially selected for certain characteristics. this means any strain is a cultivar.

actually a cultivar is an exceptional specimen of either a species or hybrid, and they are usually "named"

again, no.  A cultivar would be an exceptional plant (example) of the strain.  Say like a really nice "skunk #1" plant could become a cultivar and get named something like "skunk#1 'cheeze'"


Also, a cultivar can only be propagated through cuttings, because even selfing a plant will produce numerous variations; and being that there are strains available through seed, they couldn't be cultivars

anyway im not sure you have an understanding what it actually is which is fine. everything there is pretty wrong and i you just read a definition in a textbook if you have one or just on the net you will see how you dont have a grasp of what it is. anyway no worries man!

seeds most def can be clutivars infact that is the case most of the time. suggesting canola and wheat do not have commercial cultivars is silly because they have to be clone only. im not sure where you got your info from.
