How to identify the sex of your cannabis plant

When we talk about growing cannabis for recreational or medicinal use, we are predominantly focused on the growing of female plants. Cannabis is a dioecious species, which means that the  reproductive organs of the plant occur on separate specimens resulting in distinctly male and female plants. Occasionally both male and female flowers occur on the same plant – these are known as hermaphrodites.   Because of our focus on producing female flowers, identifying males from females and females from hermaphrodites is of utmost importance. If males or hermaphrodites are growing alongside female plants, pollination will occur, causing females to create seeds. Flowers, aka ‘buds’ with plenty of seeds are not good to smoke, they taste bad, are very irritating on the throat, and are usually much lower in potency. This is because making seeds is energy intensive, leaving less energy for producing trichomes.             View this post on Instagram                     💘 Harvesting CPK 💘 i cant wait to try that trim hash.. 🔥🔥🔥 Plant Untopped – 6 Liter pot.
