Two things influence the structural formation of any given cannabis plant: genetics and environment. The plant’s genetic makeup, also called a genotype, acts as a blueprint for growth: it allows a spectrum of physical possibilities, but it is up to the environment to induce these characteristics. The physical expression of a genotype is referred to as a phenotype, which is simply defined as the traits that the environment pulls out from the plant’s genetic code. Everything from color, shape, smell, and resin production are affected by the environment. – Cannabis Genotypes and Phenotypes: What Makes a Strain Unique? By leafly

Are local seeds any good?

The short answer – yes, local seeds are just as good, if not better than international seeds at a 3rd of the price and available immediately.
The long answer – Seeds are normally brought into the country illegally and reproduced with the exact same genetics, just under a different breeder’s name. So you won’t have the bragging rights of claiming it’s from “Sensi Seeds” or “Green House Seed Company bru..”, but the look of the bud, taste and effect will be the same. Local breeders also cross breed international with international or international with local strains (Same selective breeding process as international award winning breeders) to produce unique strains with unique characteristics that they can claim as their own.
Personally we advise to support local breeders as South African cannabis seeds are just as good as international seeds – Not only will you be helping to create local jobs, you will be getting excellent genetics.
