How to Tell the Difference Between Male and Female Marijuana Plants

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, September, 28th 2012 by THCFinder

If you are a cannabis grower, knowing how to tell the difference between the male and female marijuana plant is critical because only non-pollinized female marijuana plants will produce THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

 

Males

 

Male marijuana plants are often, but not always, tall with stout stems, sporadic branching and few leaves. Males are usually harvested except those used for breeding, after their sex has been determined, but before the pollen is shed. When harvesting, especially if close to females, cut the marijuana plant off at the base, taking care to shake the male as little as possible. This helps prevent any accidental pollination by an unnoticed, open male flower. When a male enters the stage of flower development, the tips of the branches where a bud would develop will start to grow what looks like a little bud [little balls] but it will have no white hairs coming out of it.

 

Females

 

Female marijuana plants will have no balls and will have small white hairs. It is very important to get rid of male plants on time, as they are unwanted pollen carriers. By the early flowering stage male cannabis, if compared to female's, shows quite a different structure but the characteristic excrescences would be the sex indicator this are called primordia and will emerge by the side of the third or fourth internodes in the main stem. Female marijuana are fully revealed when the characteristic "V" shaped pistils become visible, all this to a close observation. If the female marijuana plant isn't pollenized [if there are no male marijuana plants nearby producing pollen], the flower or buds continue to develop and produce THC. Female marijuana plants which are not pollenized are referred to as sinsemilia [without seeds]. Usually 30 to 50% of the marijuana plants are male.

The Pot Point

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, September, 25th 2012 by THCFinder

What is behind the war on cannabis (both medicinal and recreational) and will marijuana ever be legalized? What are the effects of smoking weed? Where does President Obama stand? John Fugelsang (Political Comedian) led this week's panel on TYT’s  “The Point” to discuss those issues and more with Cornell Reid (Comedian), Dave Brian (Editor - The 420 Times), and Sam Humeid (Owner - Perennial Holistic Wellness Center). Not on the live panel, but providing “points,” were Steve Elliott (Author - "The Little Black Book of Marijuana" and editor of Toke of The Town), and Dr. Igor Grant (Professor of Psychiatry - UC San Diego).

 

It was a great discussion ranging from the history of cannabis and its prohibition to the stigma that still surrounds marijuana to the politics of this controversial, yet healing, plant.

 

Marijuana is permeating every part of our culture. Thanks to the internet, the propaganda that has been used against cannabis for the last 75 years no longer influences like it once did. Information is widely available and the vast majority of the country now favors legalizing medical marijuana in their state.
