    This review is from: The Cannabis Breeder’s Bible: The Definitive Guide to Marijuana Genetics, Cannabis Botany and Creating Strains for the Seed Market (Paperback)
    This is what you’d have to call almost a ‘dangerous’ book, if there can be such a thing because it mixes some correct information (plus commercial photos from seed co’s) with other information which is totally wrong (call it a Trump-ism if you like).
    The information on breeding is pretty basic in terms of actual physical guidelines, gives no actual examples/study-cases of breeding and is fundamentally flawed in many ways in its discussion of genetics.
    However possibly the most important topic of all in the book (i.e. how cannabinoids are formed in the plant and thus inherited) is totally screwed up by the inclusion of an incorrect diagram of cannabinoid biosynthesis on page 204 showing CBG->CBD->THC, while in actual fact it is two separate (but GENETICALLY COMPETING) pathways: CBG-acid -> CBD-acid and CBG-acid -> THC-acid that occur in Cannabis plants. The book also states incorrect information about THCV based on outdated assumptions of its pharmacology stating “THCV…is psychoactive, but the onset is quick and the duration is short”, while in fact THCV is interestingly a CB1 antagonist at low doses, but changes into a CB1 agonist at higher doses! Also no mention is made of the heredity of THCV-acid (which parallels THC-acid).
    Interestingly below the incorrect diagram of cannabinoid biosynthesis is the laughable statement about THC in cannabis: “Unusual samples taken have recorded above 50%…”, which if you didn’t know is physically impossible for unprepared/unmanicured cannabis material.
    Not surprisingly I recommend not to buy this book.

    I was really expecting more from this book. It wasn’t until I finished reading did I notice the book was published in 2005, a lot has happened to Cannabis since then, so therefore the information is dated. If you took biology in high school or college then you are already familiar with half of the text in the book. As an emerging breeder I am trying to educate myself, my girlfriend warned me that I probably knew more than this book had to offer, I doubted her but she was right. I though that I could learn some more specific stuff from an experienced breeder but the fact is although the author is a scholar educated in genetic biology he lacks the experience in breeding Cannabis. It’s evident the more in depth knowledge comes from others sources or references. I found myself disagreeing with the book many times, even about things that are “proven” or taught in school like punnet squares which consume >25% of pages in a this book. If your an old schooler who only knows about strains like skunk#1 or NL#5 you might enjoy this book.

    I’d also like to mention this book focuses a lot on selfing and hermie breeding, which is a subject that a responsible breeder would avoid completely. As well the basis of the book lacks culture, so much of this material is focused on seed banks and breeders from the U.K., but the true culture lies in the hands of growers on the west coast, its clear the author lacks culture. Greg Green is just an author with too much on his hands. This book is not worth more than $5 plus the artwork is extremely novice and confusing.

    All the tables in the kindle version are too messed up to use. Since the book is laid out in a way the tables are needed to understand what he is saying this makes book worthless.
