Cannabis plants are a special kind of plant. From its rich history to its aroma and flavor, cannabis is unlike any other herb you’ll ever encounter. It’s made up of parts that are unique to the species as well as recognizable to other plants. They’re pretty easy to grow and care for, but they have very specific needs. If you know what those needs are, then you can easily maintain a healthy cannabis plant in your own home.
Cannabis plants are what we call dioecious, which means they can either be male or female. Their gender is determined by their genetics, so if you’re growing your own plants, you’ll need to know which one you’re starting with. The males produce pollen and the females produce seeds; the seeds are what you’ll use to grow new plants.
So let’s take a look at what makes this amazing plant so special:
The main part of the plant that we use for smoking or cooking is called the flower. Flowers are tall stalks with many branches and small green leaves, which contain THC and CBD. As you can see from these pictures, flowers are usually bright white or purple in color. The buds of female plants produce seeds, while male plants produce pollen that fertilizes female flowers to make them grow into more marijuana plants.
Leaves are the primary photosynthetic organs of the plant. They make carbohydrates from sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water. Leaves are also the first place to look for signs of nutrient deficiencies, pests or other problems in your grow room. Leaves are also where most of your cannabinoids and terpenes are synthesized. If you want to get high (or just feel good), you should pay attention to them!
Roots are the part of your plant that grows deep into the soil. The roots absorb water and nutrients from the soil and spread out through it to anchor the plant and absorb moisture. Roots are covered by a white root cap, which protects them from damage as they grow through hard surfaces like concrete or rocks.
The stems of a marijuana plant are the main structure that holds the plant together and provides support. They’re what you see in all those pictures on the packaging; long, cylindrical things with little green leaves at their tops. Stems contain the plant’s vascular system, which is responsible for transporting water and nutrients to the rest of the plant. Stems can be round or flat (like a ribbon), skinny or wide, short or tall—there are countless varieties!
A Cannabis Plant is Different From Other Plants
Unlike most plants, cannabis has a unique structure: the female plant produces seed and the male plant produces pollen. A cannabis plant is different from other plants in that it has unique structures.
Cannabis is a dioecious species of flowering herb that includes three distinct groups (subspecies): Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. The best way to understand how these subspecies affect your growing experience is to think about them as different genders—like humans! Male cannabis plants produce pollen which fertilizes females and produces seeds; female cannabis plants produce seeds that become new offspring when they germinate.
In conclusion, it is important to understand that there are many parts to a marijuana plant. It is also important to note that these structures serve different purposes and can be used for different things.
For example, when you smoke cannabis or eat it as food, then the flowers are primarily responsible for providing an enjoyable experience.
On the other hand, when you use cannabis as medicine then stems and leaves play more of an essential role in treating health conditions because they contain more cannabinoids than any other part of the plant!
