Question Cubing

i was looking at some strains and they were saying that they were cubed i guess they mix 3-4 different strains pollen together to pollinate. what does this due just give the resulting seeds more variety

As I see it, cubing is used to create a larger population to select from. Use?

Not 3-4 different strains. That is what we call uncontrolled breeding or pollen chuking, closet hacker etc. HAHA. Cubing is not a giant orgy.

Cubing is essentially backcrossing. But you use multiple males (of the same genetics). This allows large selection numbers to identify the dominant traits you are looking for. This prevents bottlenecking of the genes, and allows for a greater selection, while at the same time adding in more stability for the line with each successive generation. Once you've done it 4 times, its "cubed".

Check out the history of C-99. Mr. Soul found a seed in a bag of JH, grew it, cubed it, and you have the legend.

Also, cubing can be used as a backup system.
Say you started a breeding project and you think you have found the right siblings to continue on with.
Only to find out later on they didnt turn out to be the best choice.
You can then backcross to the mother and start over again.
Just another way to use cubing.
Just my 2 cents
