Landrace genetics are grown from seeds which have not been systematically selected and marketed by seed companies or developed by plant breeders. They are not necessarily homogeneous (similar) but they exhibit enough characteristics in common to permit their recognition as a group. A landrace identified with a unique feature and selected for uniformity over a period of time for maintenance of the characteristic features of the population can evolve into a farmers' variety or even a modern cultivar. Conversely, a modern cultivar grown over a time by farmers outdoors that is not maintained as per the principles of normal maintenance breeding can evolve into a landrace.
Original cultivars are those strains which are bred and introduced to the cannabis community that are distinct from other strains of cannabis. Usually, but not always, original cultivars retain those distinct characteristics when breeding with them.
The definition of "landrace" or "original cultivar" will vary in the cannabis world depending on the source. We have tried to come up good defitions for both terms. However, if you feel that these descriptions are inadequate, please feel free to contact us and let us know how and why you think it should be changed.
