Fan Leaves

Large, fan-like cannabis leaves - fan leaves are usually low in potency.

Pistillate, ovule, and seed producing cannabis plant.


Feminized plants come from seeds that have been selectively bred to produce only female plants since they produce flowers (which is where most of the cannabinoids are found) and are the only ones that are used to create cannabis products. Feminized seeds are intended to make things easier for growers by eliminating the need to determine the sex of growing plants and remove males early on to prevent fertilization. Generally, feminized seeds produce the same quality of plants as naturally produced seeds.

Feral Cannabis

Feral cannabis (often referred to as 'ditch weed') is wild-growing cannabis generally descended from industrial hemp plants previously cultivated for fiber, with low or negligible amounts of psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC).
