Sorry ween. I sometimes forget everyone doesn’t use the term yet.I am answering all of these with thoughtfulness.
However I feel a little dumb. Can you please tell me EXACTLY what you mean by "chemovars?"
In botany there’s no such thing as a strain. It simply doesn’t exist in the scientific language. Dr. Ethan Russo, aside from being one of the leading brains studying cannabinoids and cannabis therapeutics, is also passionate about the science of botany, and he’s asked that we stop referring to the plants as “strains” and suggested “chemovar” instead, since each plant is an individual expression of molecules and chemistry.
It’s the same with our push to lose the word “marijuana “, which came to be used as a vehicle of prohibition and division, and replace it with cannabis, the name that the plant had before Aslinger and Hearst went to such extremes to vilify it.
Since I heard Dr. Russo’s talk a couple years back I haven’t been able to call them “strains.”
