Currently the way the cannabis industry uses the term F1 hybrid is wrong. An F1 hybrid (or filial 1 hybrid) is the first filial generation of offspring of distinctly different parental inbred types. Cross-pollination involving two true-breeding, or homozygous, parents, result in an F1 generation that are homozygous and consistent in seed form. There are very few, if any, true F1 hybrids in cannabis because every modern variety is heterozygous (highly variable). The Phylos genotype test can detect the level of homozygosity or “true breeding” status in a particular genotype. So far there are no completely homozygous varieties out of the thousands of unique genotypes we have tested on the galaxy. Who will be the first to develop two individual and distinct homozygous varieties and cross breed them in cannabis has yet to be seen.

My proposal, which is up for discussion, is as follows.
I’d love to see alternative proposals!
One that was offered was “LB1” to designate line bred, although I believe that “P” still makes more sense as it can stand for polyhybrid or population hybrid, both are accurate for what is being done. “H” is another, probably better, option with it standing for hybrid in regard to cannabis breeding.
