Hemp can either be male or female as well as marijuana. Although they look nearly identical, male and female plants have differences. Male hemp forms small round pollen sacs while small pear-shaped nodes begin to form in female hemp’s internodes. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Interestedinhemp 0 Questions 42 Answers 0 Best Answers 86 Points View Profile Interestedinhemp 2020-07-02T15:32:14-04:00Added an answer on July 2, 2020 at 3:32 pm There is a lot of misinformation about Hemp plants being only a certain sex. There are actually both male and female Hemp plants. The female Hemp plants are the ones that grow and go on to be harvested and used in many products at the end of the season. The male Hemp plants actually die off allowing the female plants to flourish. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Cleverclogs 0 Questions 204 Answers 0 Best Answers 414 Points View Profile Cleverclogs 2020-06-27T19:20:00-04:00Added an answer on June 27, 2020 at 7:20 pm Hemp plants can be both male or female. However, because female plants live longer than their male counterparts; it is often the female plants that are harvested. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-06-26T22:58:06-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 10:58 pm Male hemp plants typically die off much earlier than the female plants, which are what we grow and harvest. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-05-03T20:19:24-04:00Added an answer on May 3, 2020 at 8:19 pm No, this is a common misconception among new hemp or marijuana growers thinking male is hemp and weed is the female version of the cannabis plant. The male plants usually die off quickly after pollination, leaving the female plant of each to grow and be cultivated for various purposes. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
