Male and Female Plants
Just like in real life our Plants come in female or male varieties and both have a unique role. When brought together during breeding they will create new strains. You can also find an in-game tutorial here.
Male Plants may not seem important but without their precious pollen farmers would not be able to grow seeds for free and create new strains. If you are lucky and get a male don't be disappointed because when you harvest you will receive pollen enough pollen to pollinate two female plants.
As previously mentioned, when you harvest a male plant you will receive enough pollen for two female plants. During the budding/flowering stage of a female plant you will be able to pollinate. Just go to your farm and click on pollinate, choose which plot to pollinate, which pollen to use and click submit. Wait about a week and you will receive seeds.
Females can produce seeds when pollinated or buds when left unpollinated. In order to get seeds just use the method described above and pollinate one of your female plants.
Once you harvest a pollinated plant you will receive two seeds which carry the traits of the mother and father (buds and pollen). These seeds can then be planted on an available plot, saved or sold on the market(coming soon).
Why would you want to make hybridized seeds? One idea I have is to recreate the hybrids currently available in real life. For example, if I want to produce Blue Dream I will want to grow the strains in its lineage first and then crossing them to get the final result. You can find the lineage of cannabis plants by using seedfinder.eu which has a large database of cannabis family trees.
Congratulations! You are now on your way to creating your first hybrid Cannabis strain!
