Stagnant

Motionless air or water - for healthy cannabis growth, water must drain and not become stagnant as well as you need good air circulation.

Stamen

The cannabis male floral organ, bearing the anther, which produces pollen to fertilize female flowers.

Staminate

Male, pollen-producing flower having stamens but no pistils.

Steamroller

A cylindrical pipe usually made from glass that is open on both ends with the bowl extending from the top near one end. The smoker covers one end with her hand while filling the pipe with smoke, then removes her hand to clear the chamber.

Sterilize

To make super clean by removing dirt, germs, and bacteria; disinfect pruning tools to avoid spreading disease.

Stigma

The tip of the cannabis flower's pistil, which receives the pollen.

Stipule

One of a pair of small, leaf-like appendages found at the base of the leaf-stalk of many cannabis plants.

Stomata

The tiny holes can be found on the underside of the cannabis leaf (and just about every other plant). They’re called 'stomata' and they require a microscope or at least a magnifying glass to see. Small mouth-like or nose-like openings on leaf underside, responsible for transpiration and many other life functions - the millions of stomata must be kept very clean to function properly.

Stoned

If you haven't figured it out by now, being stoned is a euphoric sensation you experience following the consumption of cannabis. It is a result of the cannabis plant's many psychoactive components, though mainly Tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC). It is certainly possible to get uncomfortably stoned, but nobody has ever died from it.

Stoner Film

Stoner film is a subgenre of comedy films that revolve around the use of cannabis. Generally, cannabis use is one of the main themes and inspires much of the plot and they are often representative of cannabis culture.
