friend found sativa plants - some questions...
    #266685 - 08/17/09 09:13 PM (7 years, 3 months ago)

I am new here so hello everyone!  I hope this is the right forum for this post.  I have not grown before so I don't know much about it.  Someone I know found a lot of sativa plants growing in the wild.  They have a few questions about this.

1. Is there any way to tell what strain they are?
2. How would one determine when the best time to grab some?  Since they are out and about a microscope to look at trichomes really won't be possible.
3. What would be the best way to dry them?
4. If they wanted to spread some seeds is there anything special that needs to be done to preserve them besides drying the plant?

Thanks!

He said they were "wild" get a clue... if they were grown wild then just cut em down, dry em out, and make some hash out of them.

They may be sprayed with a synthetic poison that can only be deactivated by a chemical only the grower has. be careful. you could die :eek:

My friend doesn't think anyone is watching them.  The males never got pulled and it seems like anyone growing them would pull the males.  My friend thinks they have been growing in this area for years as it is a very good natural habitat for them and they are dispersed in a way that would occur naturally as the seeds blow in the wind.

Anyway, it also sounds like there is more than enough so that a few missing buds wouldn't even be noticed if they are someone's plants. 

I would really like appreciate it if someone is willing to help answer my questions.  I have no bad intentions here.  I'm just a noob and my friend is excited about the big find...

Yea, I'd have to say leave em alone, cannabis doesnt grow wild anymore.

Authorities in the US have taken great measures to ensure that fact.

Besides, based on what friends do guerrilla style, they would know if
someone has been to the crop.

People tend to take paths over and over when they find that stuff,
and the growers know not to (just one example)

Careful, you could piss off the wrong person.

Edit: Oh, and they wouldnt have to pull the males, i mean maybe they
are trying to get some more seeds to plant.

Sry buddy, i cant help you take the buds. besides all the questions ur
asking can be searched easily...

I should add that it is also not likely these are a guerilla grow as they are in a pretty highly visible and high traffic area right next to a suburban paved walking path - only a few feet off the path.

How likely is it that they are sprayed with a chemical?  Is that a common practice by growers?  Seems pretty stupid.  Is there a way to tell if this is the case?

Who would do a guerilla that is so obviously visible from less than 3-4 feet away to probably a hundred people a day going for a walk or jog?  My friend thinks there was a guerilla here 5-10 years ago before the houses and trails went in and the plants naturally spread from that so they are growing wild now.  Does that seem possible?

Welcome to The Growery:gethigh:

As far as the plants go, they may be hemp if they are growing in a clearing or off a road way. I have came across small patches of hemp in areas like i listed. Which is probly why the males are all still there. But if they are not hemp and are indeed cannabis, then let them grow till the first frost if you get frost. Thing is, you said," How would one determine when the best time to grab some?" which makes me also question the your grow your about to "grab" from. But i guess it is what it is. Karma can be a bugger though :shrug:

Is there any way to tell if it is hemp?  I thought hemp is just another name for cannabis strains that have very low THC.  If so, I assume hemp would look just like sativa and you wouldn't know which it was without trying it.  Is that correct?

Nobody has any intention to rip off someone else's grow.  The circumstances (visibility, males there, etc) make it certainly appear pretty unlikely that anyone is tending these plants.  My friend was thinking of "grabbing" some bud that appears to be untended.  It does sound like many here think that is a bad idea though...

Sorry if I offended some of you or came across wrong.  Maybe I should have supplied more info on why this seems like an untended group of plants right from the beginning.

So you think it's a grow and they just didn't pull the males and are taking a chance that they might be discovered and destroyed?

Wow, So many questions.
Hemp is not cannabis. Hemp is pretty much useless for trying to get high.
It has a very minimal to nil amount of THC.
The Growery and Google have a search function and the answers are out there.:smile:

Most people are growers here and have grows out there and hate to see someone come in here asking questions in refereance to possibly being some elses crop. So yes people are really defensive here when it comes to these subjects.

And as far the last question. No, i honestly think it's not cannabis since you and i am assuming your friend are not to familiar with cannabis. It is probly either hemp or some other weed.

Sativas are known for their height and their leggy, often sparse, leaves. Sativas can be anywhere from tall and round like a massive bush, to lean and spindly with a few large colas. The leaves - a trademark of the sativa strain - are long and thin. The odor varies with the particular strain that is growing.

The sativa high is often characterized as uplifting and energetic. The effects of a sativa marijuana are mostly cerebral. They give a feeling of optimism and well - being, as well as providing a good measure of pain relief for certain symptoms. A few pure sativas are also very high in THC content. They are known to have a quite spacey, or hallucinogenic, effect. Sativas are a good choice for daytime smoking.

Indicas are known for their smaller stature. They are relatively short and bushy. Some are compact, others are of a more moderate height. Indicas tend to grow wider and rounder than sativas. Many look like small shrubs. Indicas typically grow out many more smaller side colas.

The indica highs are most often described as a pleasant body buzz. Indicas are great for relaxation, stress relief, and for an overall sense of calm and serenity. Marijuana indicas are also very effective for overall body pain relief, and often used in the treatment of insomnia. They are the late - evening choice of many smokers as an all - night sleep aid. A few pure indica strains are very potent in THC, and will cause the "couchlock" effect, enabling the smoker to simply sit still and enjoy the experience of the smoke.
