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:





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.

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...





this gave me a chuckle. it seems highly illogical to have "sativas" as you say growing wild near a development for years unnoticed you would think in years past someone found it. you are on someones plot or its the relative of the straw berry plant that i dont remember the name of

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.
