    Cannabis genetic testing

    I had a bean in the last order that was not what it was supposed to be. That said, it turned out to be a favorite. I would like to have it tested to determine what strain it is, if that is possible. Anyone else gone down this road? What did you find, who does it, how much $ was it, can they test from a dried sample. And how the heck is one supposed to ship it across state lines with out committing a felony (US)? My search turned up many hits, and many look sketchy. Anyone with information or guidance in this type of endeavor please chime in.
    Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

    I'd like to do that too. I got a critical purple haze growing that looks like its suffering from dwarfism ...not short per se but overall if you compared it to humans it would be classified as a midget/dwarf. out of 3 seeds only 2 popped one looks like she's starting out just fine, the other, which popped 6 weeks ago, is the one that looks way too odd.
    I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.

      Comparing a small cannabis plant to small humans being a midget/dwarf... Can I try some of what you got?

    A DNA test should tell or at least in the ball park. I would think under $100? How important to you to know? Visit Dark Heart Nursery. They have a good lab. if they can't help, maybe steer you in the right direction.
