  • Abstract Four crosses were made between Cannabis plants with “pure” CBD and THC chemotypes. The F1 plants obtained were self-fertilised to produce F2s. Chemotypical distributions were analysed by gas-chromatography. A segregation analysis of the different F2 progenies obtained showed that chemotype, estimated as CBD/THC ratio, behaves as a qualitative character, and a model for a single locus B, with two co-dominant alleles, B D and B T is described. The CBD/THC ratios in the F1 offsprings were… CONTINUE READING
