hey percy growers, just wanted to ask how they work out the ratio of a strain when they say 70/30 sativa/indica or a 50/50. do they guess or is there an actual science behind it?

many thanks mc.

@mcgrower yep, twisted has it right. It’s based on how they think it feels. It’s not out of the question for them to call one pheno full indica and another pheno to be considered a hybrid. It’s all about how the genes express themselves.

@twisted1 ohh. that has disappointed me, i was hoping it was through the ratio of strains that they bred with. lol well thats good to know though as i wont always look at that as an indicator but more ther strains that have been bred and what they show, cheeers dude.

That is disappointing.  Explains why i saw landrace sativas spec'd at 70 - 90 %.  Seems pretty off base.
