A cultivar is a horticultural term for plants that have been intentionally bred, or cultivated, to produce specific or distinct results.

A cultivar is a type of plant that has been bred to have distinct effects, aromas and appearances, which is achieved by cleverly combining and sculpting the characteristics that they inherit from their ‘parent plants’. In the cannabis industry, sometimes cultivars, or cultivated varieties, are referred to as strains - but this is not a horticultural term.
