This is a very in depth read.
Cimmerian
There are other books that are designed for beginners and advanced cannabis cultivators like "The Cannabis Grow Bible" by Greg Green (the same author as this book).
Grass
It is exactly right for anyone who wants to know everything about the marijuana plant.

If you are new to growing then this is not where you want to be going. So you have been warned. There are other books that are designed for beginners and advanced cannabis cultivators like "The Cannabis Grow Bible" by Greg Green (the same author as this book). However if what you want is the science of the cannabis plant from a botanical perspective with information on modern breeding concepts and how the seed/clone industry works, or if you want to expand your cannabis knowledge to the cutting edge then read on.

The book is divided into a number of sections. It starts by introducing us to the cannabis genetics market "an overview of the cannabis strain market" and explains what cannabis seeds and clones are all about and the differences between the two. It then covers the science of breeding "Basic Breeding" and explains the various principles involved. By the end of that chapter you will understand genetics and can apply these models to any living organism. The author then explains how parent plants are used to create multiple strains "Donor Parents, Pollination and Seeds" which clarifies why several strains all have similar parents, for example Kush, Masterkush, Jack Herer, Jack Flash, Blueberry and Flo, before taking about compatibility issues when attempting to breed new strains. You can see all of these different standards in action if you investigate the seed market. This book tells you how they do it. The next section of the book goes into the science of cannabis cells, DNA, evolution and mutations. Here you are shown a number of mutations that seem to occur naturally with the cannabis plant with ways of forcing mutations in the cannabis plant by using mutagens that you can buy from a local gardening store or the chemist.

Format: Paperback
To have gone through this book and come out the other side is a profound experience, like some sort of a futuristic biology class that specialized in the stuff that gets you best baked. I would not hesitate to force any kind of plant lover to gravitate towards this book like it was about a rose bush or an apple tree. It is a progressively deeper and meaningful insight into the world of plants and the humans who care for them. On one page we are getting an illustrated history of the evolution of the cannabis plant and on the next page how to use materials to enhance the genes that make flowers big like they where back in the prehistoric ages. It is unparalleled in the way its advanced scientific information is brought out in a practical and applicable manner to your grow. The best part is that we can have it all now. The fact that Greg Green is a cotemporary makes now the best time to repeat what he is advising because you can do it the same way with the same stuff. The evidence is in the book. Nowhere else, anywhere else, has anything, even remotely addressed the kind of topics in this book, let alone experiment and produce consistent results with them. This kind of detail is avant-garde marijuana research. It is influencing and changing the way cannabis cultivation is done on daily bases.Read more ›

This is one of the best books about the cannabis plant I have read. It is dedicated to the science of the cannabis plant. There is some advanced growing material in here also but the cannabis plant is talked about for nearly 300 pages without getting boring. You will reference this for life.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent resource on cannabis genetic's and how cannabis genetic characteristic's are utilized from the male and female plants.. IT IS NOT FOR THE BEGINNER wanting to learn how to grown cannabis, it is for experienced growers and designed for the advanced grower or anyone interested in cannabis genetic's to create their own variety of cannabis. If you do not have the time to understand how genetic's work nor do not understand basic chemistry about genetic's, this book is not for you. Verl McCown, GG

Over the last few years I have read several publications that covered the topic of growth and harvest. I have also read a plethora of articles on grow room construction and infrastructure for a good grow and a healthy garden.

This said, I have never seen a publication so in-depth and concise in regards to plant biology, genetics and reproduction.

I have had to go back to my old volumes and brush up on my knowledge just to get my mind around the fundamentals of this book. Not for hobbyists!

This is a very professional and easy to understand publication that I would recommend to any serious breeder or ANY flora whatsoever!

grow you good thing. Sadroc 75

Format: Paperback
I bought this book with the hopes of learning something about genetics, and I learned that the author should devote some time to reading "marijuana botany" by Robert Connell Clarke. Unfortunately "The Cannabis Breeders Bible" is not a "definitive guide to marijuana genetics" the book is more like recycled garbage from a bunch of other grow books. It does nothing to explain the real deal with breeding like identifying strains that are compatible and in turn can breed. He puts it in a manner saying all you have to do is find a male and find a female and voila you have seeds. Any good cannabis breeder knows this is not the truth. Anyone looking at this book should just buy "Marijuana Botany" and leave it at that. The Cannabis breeders bible did nothing more than waste my time.
