Cannabis cultivation

Cannabis is a versatile crop that can grow in many different climates. It's a sun-loving annual plant that thrives under a variety of conditions, depending on the cultivar, hence its common designation of “weed.” Cannabis can be male or female, with reproductive organs. The male staminate (stamen) and female pistillate (pistils) usually occur on different plants. In the presence of a male's pollen, the female will begin to produce seeds. In the rare cases that the sexual traits share a plant, it is known as a hermaphrodite.

Cannabis grown from seed starts with germination, a process through which the seed is “sprouted,” then nurtured in starting material, which can range from soil to rock wool. At this stage, the plant is considered a seedling.

For more uniformity, some cultivators start with clones, which are cuttings from a cannabis “mother plant” that's been kept in a vegetative state. Clones are genetic copies of the mother plant and will exhibit more predictable growth and flowering patterns, as well as cannabinoid and terpene profiles, if grown under the same conditions.
