Lineage carries significant weight for genetics. Having the lineage helps growers like myself predict what to expect from any given strain. This also helps prevent imposters and breeders from scamming the community. Like anything with a pedigree- breeding a decent quality strain takes time, research, a little luck, and patience. Tracking lineage helps recognize the breeders that have invested in their genetics.

It all goes back to the original breeders. These are the legends. If a breeder creates a new stable hybrid I fully expect to know what the parents are. Almost all strains have been improved by the breeder for earlier flowering times , more trikes. Smell has been bred out. So has couch lock potency.

More than 20 years ago I grew a strain that exploded with an alcohol,fuel skunk aroma. You could not finish a joint with out needing to ly down. I loved the stuff. High Times got all pissy complaining about being too high. Then the breeders bred out the potent aroma . The breeders concentrated on high THC and ignored , eliminated most of the cannabinoids , terpenes and alcohol s. We are now beginning to understand what we lost. Things are looking up.

This is very important. How can one compare accurate results with one another without this knowledge.
