The legend about marijuana
Do you know about cannabis? Do you know how the cannabis you smoke is collected and processed every time? Do you know exactly what cannabis looks like? Why can some cannabis be smoked and some can be used to make sacks?
I believe that most of my colleagues have a general impression, but it is difficult to say clearly.
When I was in college, I was not very clear every time I swallowed the clouds with my roommates, but I have heard a few mysterious and elusive claims.
“The method of collecting marijuana is very particular. During the summer and autumn seasons, it will be very hot for a month. The farmer who grows this will find a virgin about 19 years old, give her a lot of water, and let her be completely naked. The body is running in the hemp field. The girl runs constantly against the sun. The sweat from her body is mixed with the oil of hemp and sticks to her body. After the sun goes down, the farmer will use a spatula to follow the girl’s smooth and delicate skin Scrape the dust, sweat and hemp oil into clumps from her wonderful body. Then dry these soft and fragrant clods to become the hemp we smoke now. “This is a very impressive one. statement.
“Marijuana is the soil scraped from cannabis leaves.” “Marijuana is chopped cannabis leaves.” This is the saying I’ve heard the most.
In fact, the marijuana we smoke is not as simple as most people think. Please allow me to speak slowly from beginning to end.
Interpreting cannabis from a biological perspective
Cannabis is a plant, in biology, it is classified as Angiosperm, Dicotyledon, Urtica, Moraceae, Cannabis. It is an annual herb, mostly dioecious, but also monoecious.
Simply put, marijuana is a low plant with roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. It has no wooden structure and looks like most green low-flowered weeds with leaves. Cannabis has a natural life span of only one year. It reproduces through pollen, germinates in spring, blooms in late summer, sets seeds in fall, and wilts in late fall or early winter.
Gender of cannabis plant
Cannabis is divided into two sexes, and the appearance of females and males is more distinct.
Male marijuana is a male marijuana. Compared with the female, the stem is thick and the leaves are sparse, and the appearance looks taller and wider. The obvious feature is that when the male plant is about to mature, the male plant will grow small green bumps at the junction of the stem and the branches. The technical term is called calyx.
This thing is the green skin outside the bud just before it blooms. However, male cannabis does not bloom and only bears the calyx. The calyx will produce pollen. When the calyx is mature, it will open a small opening (the male calyx of some cannabis species will open completely), and then spread pollen (which can be understood as flower sperm).
Female marijuana is a female marijuana. Relatively speaking, the stem is thin, the branches are short, the leaves are luxuriant, and the appearance looks short and squat.
Similarly, green calyxes grow at the junction of the branches and stems. The difference is that the top of the female calyx grows white filaments. The technical term is called stigma (also called style. The style and stigma of cannabis seem to have no Obvious differentiation, so I think it can be mixed together), the role is to receive the pollen from the male flower, transport it to the ovary, and then complete the fertilization. After the female plant enters the flowering period (sexually mature), the calyx will bloom and grow flowers.
I haven’t heard of it for viewing. I feel that if this thing is planted, it will look scary. And our fuel is the flower of the female plant and the leaves around the flower (the whole female cannabis plant is directly ground up as fuel without special attention).
After the hemp has bloomed a lot of flowers, we harvest the flowers of the female hemp and the leaves near the flowers, dry them, and then grind them into powder, which is our fuel. (The timing of harvesting, drying methods, grinding, etc. of cannabis are very particular, which will be explained in detail in the following chapters)
In some cases, there are still androgynous cannabis. The mainstream scientific opinion believes that there are two reasons for this happening in cannabis.
There are calyxes of two sexes on a marijuana plant. The calyx with white silk is female, and the one without white silk is male.
- Inheritance, hemp seeds have gained one more sex chromosome from the previous generation. The general female chromosome is XX, but it also has XXY, that is, a male chromosome Y is added to the plant chromosome. This cannabis plant exhibits the appearance characteristics of a female plant in the initial development, but it is possible to grow male and female calyxes, and then complete self-pollination (self-mating with oneself) to breed seeds. This situation also exists in the human world. Some people have sex chromosomes XXX or XXY, or even XXXY or XXYY. There is a film in the United States, “Pre-Destination”, which was shot on this subject, so we won’t discuss it here.
- Stress, the female fabric has suffered huge or long-term trauma, or is in a harsh environment. When she realizes that she cannot mate with the male plant, she will grow a calyx with a pollen sac, the male calyx, to complete self-pollination. (Female coyotes also have penis and false testicles)
The flowers bloom early, and the stress responses of plants are varied
The above is the description of the shape of cannabis, because different origins and varieties have different heights, colors, and differences in male and female shapes, and even very different. Many marijuana growers will reject male marijuana and hermaphrodite marijuana, but life is equal and beautiful. Regardless of plants or animals, being kind and respecting life is a noble virtue.
One leaf and one bodhi, one flower and one world
