Grafting Cannabis: Multiple Strains on One Plant

Grafting in the gardening sense simply means taking a donor cutting (branch) from one plant, which is called a Scion. Then attaching this donor limb/Scion to another plant known as the Rootstock.

This is an old practice within the flower and fruiting worlds, yet it seems like an overlooked skill within our community. Odd, especially when you consider some of the most common issues faced by the smaller non-commercial growers. Things such as enforced plant number limitations, or the simple but ever common space restrictions that we all seem to face at one time or another. So in theory utilizing the Grafting technique, we gain the ability to have multiple strains growing off the one mother plant. This, of course, opens up the grower’s world to more choices strain wise, whilst also keeping your plant numbers under any required levels.
