Everything You Need to Know About a Male Pot Plant


Effectively everybody has heard of marijuana. However, some people don’t know a lot about it. They know about marijuana, they know it makes you feel “high,” and maybe they can identify a marijuana leaf on a dorm room poster. Some people use marijuana, of course. Once you do that, you start to learn more about it. That being said, you can partake in marijuana without knowing too much about it, especially if you aren’t buying marijuana yourself, or aren’t going to a quality dispensary to get your marijuana. At this point, you start to learn about different strains: sativas, indicas, and hybrids. The next step? Growing your own pot plants for personal use. Yes, you can grow marijuana at home, and here at Growers Choice Seeds, we recommend that if you have the inclination. You control the whole process and you will save money in the long run. Plus, it’s fun! Once you graduate to growing your own plants, there is, even more, you need to know about marijuana. For example, the difference between a male pot plant and a female pot plant. There are indeed male pot plants and female pot plants, and the distinction definitely matters.

How can you identify a male pot plant?

It can definitely be easier to identify a male pot plant by comparing it to a female pot plant. That’s the case, for example, with height. Male pot plants are taller than their female counterparts. Additionally, male pot plants have thick and sturdy stalks. A male pot plant is going to be robust, while a female pot plant will be slender. You may be able to recognize a third, and study stalk in a male pot plant even without a comparison point. The same is true when it comes to leaves. Female pot plants feature an abundance of leaves, while male pot plants tend to have leaves that are few and far between. A female pot plant will feature translucent hairlike fibers that will likely be white or orange and feature pistils in the shape of a “V,” two things you won’t see on a male pot plant. Now, there is one more definitive way to identify a male pot plant, and it’s the big reason why being able to tell the difference between a male pot plant and a female pot plant is so important.


What does a female pot plant provide you that a male pot plant does not?

For the at-home marijuana grower, there is one striking reason why you want to be able to identify if you have a male pot plant in your midst. Male plants have pollen sacs. Female plants do not. What do female pot plants have? In short, they have buds. Sweet, resinous buds. THC-rich buds. These are only found on female pot plants. A male pot plant does not produce buds. In fact, there is barely any THC in a male pot plant, certainly not at a functional level. THC is the psychoactive element of marijuana. THC is what makes you high. Without those buds, you aren’t getting high off of THC. Now, male pot plants are vital to the marijuana species. After all, those pollen sacs pollinate female plants. Breeders need male pot plants as much as female pot plants. Also, people who are making hemp fiber, but that’s a story for another day. You, though, aren’t a breeder. You are growing marijuana at home. Why? So you can get high! So you can enjoy the psychotropic effects of THC! If you plant a seed and suddenly you are seeing a thick stalk and pollen sacs, you know you have a male pot plant, and you know that pot plant won’t provide you with THC. Personal, at-home marijuana growers need female pot plants, because by and large male pot plants aren’t doing them any good.

Should I be worried that I will grow a male pot plant?

That is a concern for you as an at-home grower because a male pot plant is not going to give you any buds rich in THC. You know what would be great?
