friend found sativa plants - some questions...
    #266685 - 08/17/09 07:13 PM (9 years, 9 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.

I have read up on this already.  From the wikipedia article on hemp:

Quote:

wikipedia said:
Hemp (from Old English h├Žnep, see cannabis (etymology)) is the common name for plants of the entire genus Cannabis, although the term is often used to refer only to Cannabis strains cultivated for industrial (non-drug) use.





According to this hemp is cannabis.  It is a strain with low THC.  All the pictures I have found look just like sativa.  Is there a visible difference that you know of?  Searching is not turning up any difference aside from THC content.

SpaceMonkey, thanks for your help with that.  I have already looked up the difference between sativa and indica.  My friend has found what appear to be sativa.  The question is whether it is a good strain of sativa or not (or if it is just hemp and thus not a good sativa) and if there is a way to tell that by looking at them.  Any idea about that?

grmiR and backintheriver, why try making up the stuff about poison?  I searched google and there are no references at all to this being done.  Growers are not dumb enough to contaminate their own plants.  Anyways if you read the extra info in this thread it really seems like this is not a grow and may just be hemp.  Do you know how to tell the difference between hemp strains and good sativa strains?

You know I dont know much about the subject but... Karma is a bitch and you can do what you like. I just think what you are planning to do is a bad idea. If this is someones grow and I have seen grows right under peoples noses before they might watch for people snooping around so be careful.

Okay stop calling it Sativa...you're driving me crazy.
Technically you're right because the genus is cannabis sativa, but when we talk about it, sativa refers to something different.  What it means to growers and smokers is like what was said before: tall, spindly, with long narrow leaves, as opposed to indica which is a squat broad leafed plant.
Read this.

So you wouldn't say "Do you know how to tell the difference between hemp strains and good sativa strains?"

You could just say "How do you tell the difference between hemp and psychoactive cannabis plants"
I cannot stress enough that calling it "sativa" as opposed to just pot, weed, cannabis, ganj, or chronic, makes you appear as though you have no idea what you're talking about, even if you do.

Finally: Nobody here is going to help you because there is a chance, albeit a small one, that this is somebody's grow.  No matter how much info you provide to the contrary, there is still a chance.  Ultimately, you have to make the choice, and you will have to do the research to find the answers you're looking for with regard to harvest readiness, psychoactivity, etc.
Sorry. 
If you or your friend decide to grow though, come on back and we'll be glad to help you out.

Why does this drive you crazy?  It as a strain of sativa.  It is definitely not Indica.  That much is for sure.  It is the tall, spindly, etc.  I'm sorry for asking non-grow questions here.  I thought they were enough grow-related but I can see why you want to protect someone else's grow if that's what you think this is.

I agree that it is highly illogical.  It really surprised me.  If it's not sativa then what is it?  Is there something else that looks pretty much exactly like all the sativa pictures on wikipedia, grow forums, etc?  I'm sure you guys won't have a problem pointing this much out to me if it might be something else, but it sure looks exactly like all these pictures on the net.  Males and females.  Following the cycle of growth described by wikipedia.  The males are flowering with their leaves starting to turning yellow right now.

here are some assumptions that are likely true:

true smokable weed will have a stronger smell when u rub the bud between your fingers

trichome production should be greater

hemp is known to be tall and skinny with not so much thick buds (so wait til later this month to see how much it fattens up)

thats how I would judge it... either way as long as its not someones grow taking a small bud to sample would save you the trouble of harvesting something useless

if the soil at the base of the plant is noticeably richer and darker than most of the dirt around it, this is probably someone elses grow. Its bad bad BAD karma to steal someone elses work and some people will shoot you on site so be careful and dont steal

If you found somebodies grow they are new at growing and your going to fuck-up their first grow. (I don't think that's the cases)

If hundreds of people a day can see these plants and nobody has fucked with them yet there is a reason, (I'm guessing hemp or some plant that looks like pot)

Smoking strains are not gonna just adapt to the area and appear year after year where there are hundreds of people that can see them.

Most likely your gonna smoke hemp or some kind of maple.

Enjoy  :rofl2:

LoL, come to Iowa sometime and take a cruise through the country. You can't go 5 miles without seeing pot growing.

In recent years I've had to go out on the Mississippi and plant up islands to stop pollination. The stuff is everywhere here.

I guess I should have read the whole post.

Most of the stuff here I would consider hemp.

Cannabis does grow year after year here even if you don't want it to, but eventually the massive hemp populations here slowly degrade the potency favoring naturally selected genes.

Hemp refers to select sativa strains of cannabis.  Hemp is cannabis.  The dea's own figures are that 98% of cannabis that is pulled up out of the ground is ditchweed, ie not tended to by anyone other than mother nature.  I bet that shit is better than having nothing though.  Personally, I would do something to really figure out if this is someone elses plot.  that should be concern number one.  Just use your judgement.  pick em when you want just let most or all of the pistils darken.  common sense.

Is there anything to back this up? like seriosly ive never heard of anything like this. Would it even be legal to sell something like that??

And Heres my 2cents, from what ive read it does NOT sound like a guerrilla grow or any other type of recreational "grow". It sounds like what you stated, some seeds and what not have been blown around and started to naturally grow there. And i mean if ANYONE were to do a grow they always pull the males. Thats like rule number one. I mean its common sense.
Also where do you live, what state?  is there ANY sign of upkeep on the land the plants or anything?? any growing materials around the site(clippers, empty grow solutions, fertilizer, anything??

So what i would have to say is watch it for a while, see if anyone rolls by besides you guys and if not, have fun! :gethigh:
Plus it would be better for you to take them then the local authorities. If they did that no one would get it! And If this was someone else grow sucks for them. I know i would NEVER grow the precious marijuana right in the open and in the vicinity of males!!
This careless ass deserves to get his plants jacked by a shroomerite!! haha
(I could care less what you guys are going to say bout my response. Im not an ass, just realistic.)

@GoldenCapAttack - no signs of growing materials at all.  I should also state that just down the road there are some more plants growing right next to the Kwik Trip and right next to the Home Depot parking lot. 

For all who criticize me for calling them sativa you make no sense.  They are sativa, not indica and I do know what I'm talking about.  Furthermore, I posted a pic on The Grow Report forum and consensus is that it is sativa and is not just hemp. 

The buds are thickening now and starting to get a bit frosty.  When I rub my fingers on a bud it has a very citrusy kind of smell.  Some of the plants have been harvested so I think others have found them also, but it is way early for harvest so I doubt it is their grow.

yeah, it would seem kinda wierd that people who Don't own the crop would only take 1 or 2 plants. Free weed and they only took a select few??

Let me explain this. You got the reaction you did because 1. you said in your opening post," I have not grown before so I don't know much about it." 2. for a noob that has admittedly said you don't know much about it, to keep using sativa to describe the plants just don't sound right. 3. these are possibly someones grow, so when you say you found a crop, right away you are on the shit end of the stick! Most of us are experienced growers here and have many grows under our belts. Most of us do stealth gardens and sometimes the best place to grow is right under people noses! But hey do what you think is right. Karma has a way of working things out in the end!

im more of STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM SOMEONE ELSE'S CROP AND DONT BE AN ASSHOLE. also the reason two plant may have disappeared is because they were mature and ready to go and you are a noob and cant tell the maturity. i say stay the fuck away and dont steal someones crop. marijuana may be illegal but in my book stealing it is the real crime!!!!!!!!

I'm requesting a lock be thrown down on this thread.
Nothing productive is going to come of it, and the OP's posts on this site are relegated only to THIS THREAD it seems.
Other than being argumentative and mildly (very mildly) entertaining, there is no point to continuing this.
