A Master Breeder has mastery over the cannabis wheel. The wheel being a pie shaped graphic depicting the four components of cannabis which are; Medicinal, Yield, Characteristics and Effects.
Examples of Medicinal are seizure and anti-inflammatory properties.
Yield encompasses the size of the plant and its vigor in different climate zones.
Characteristics are color, taste and smell.
Effects are: sleepy time, creativity, sexual arousal etc. A Master Breeder can with the help of a well stocked seed bank, first design and then create a new strain from the four parts of the cannabis wheel with certainty and deliberation. A Master Breeder calls their shot before they attempt to make it. There is no slop! No guessing. No crossbreeding to see what happens. A Master Breeder knows what is going to happen.
It takes 7 generations minimum and thousands of phenotypes to stabilize a strain so that every seed is an exact duplicate of the parent. It also takes up to five years to stabilize that strain unlike crossbreeding, which takes only months to pick one phenotype to mother clones of which there will be NO seeds.
