In the world of cannabis, it’s completely normal to cross two strains in an effort to get the best of both in a single plant. In fact, most of the strains used today are products of such crosses. However, some cannabis seeds manufacturers like to add a little twist to some of the better known strains, to make them more potent, better yielding, or reduce their flowering time, while keeping the looks, the high, and all other characteristics of a strain. That way you can get a plant that looks like a familiar classic, tastes and makes you feel like one, but produces, for example, more buds per plant. XTRM is a designation used by some cannabis seed producers to mark strains whose genetics have been improved on in order for them to achieve larger yields, without sacrificing the traits that make the strain recognizable. This is done by carefully crossing a recognized strain with another, higher yielding strain.
- XTRM strains are better yielding versions of regular strains.
