Could pollen from hermaphroditic cannabis flowers fertilize female flowers? It seems to defy what we have long believed, but a team of Canadian researchers has found some intriguing results.<br />
To fully appreciate the significance of the findings, you have to understand basic cannabis reproductive biology.<br />
Cannabis is dioecious, meaning that male and female flowers are usually found on different plants.<br />
Cultivation of cannabis focuses on female plants because the trichomes of unfertilized female flowers synthesize the highest levels of cannabinoids and terpenes.
