What does “Phenotype” mean?

The scientific term for biological components of the cannabis plant that determine flavor profile, texture, and several other factors. A plant's traits are inherited from the plants bred to create it, and as such, the result can resemble anything along the spectrum between its parents. This is why some batches of bud look different from others, even when they're the same strain! Having a dedicated mother plant helps with keeping your product as consistent as possible.

Example usage:

“Does the Lemon Haze taste any different to you? It might be a different phenotype than we're used to.”
