Plants similar to cannabis

According to the company’s experts here are many flora in nature that are similar to cannabis in appearance. Hops (Hamulus) also belong to the same family as marijuana. The largest growing areas for these plants are in the temperate northern hemisphere and in tropical and subtropical climates around the equator. Both plant species have alternate or supronate leaf structures, and fertilization of female plants by pollen from male plants is accomplished by wind or insects.

Historical digression
Like many plant species similar to hemp in species or class, hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years. Historians believe that the earliest varieties of hemp grew in Iran. They then spread to Eurasia and the Americas, to cooler climates, where they acquired new properties valuable to growers. The utilitarian usefulness of cannabis was already known in the 3000s B.C. The plant’s tough, wear-resistant fibers were used to make very strong fabric. Later, in the centuries of colonization, all ships for long-distance voyages were equipped with hemp ropes.

Of course, from a historical perspective, cannabis can be compared to cotton or nettle, for example (sewing cloth). For growers, however, the plants of interest are quite different.

Grover interest

Lupine or wolfsbane. It comes in both annuals and perennials. The flowering bushes are very reminiscent of the cannabis sativa variety with its powerful central cola and thin, carved leaves. These plants also enrich the soil with nitrogen, which is very important for cannabis. Apart from that they are simply beautiful to look at. Any outdoorsy grower would easily hide their bed in these gorgeous multi-colored flowers. They are excellent drought tolerant and can reach 1.5 m in height.

Pinecone. This is the choice of those who prefer to grow Indica. The bushes and leaves are very similar in shape to the Indica varieties. It is found in the south of Russia. It is used as an ornamental plant. Also an important plus – repellent flies and other pests, so that the hemp has nothing to fear. Interesting fact: castor oil plant is poisonous and toxic. It is from it (the fruit) that the poisonous substance, ricin, is derived. This is an option for the front garden, as it is difficult to find in the wild because of its poisonous abilities. The grower himself should also be careful.

Hemp nettle. Has a similar bush structure characteristic of Indica – lush and short. The leaves are more like Sativa. If the plant is solitary, as an adult it resembles male hemp with dust pouches.

Twiglet lamb’s ear (meadowsweet lamb’s-eye). The plant got its name because the leaves are shaped like a palm (hand) with fingers spread apart. This does not prevent them to be similar to the leaves of indica varieties of cannabis. The bushes also have flowering internodes and large inflorescences on the tops of the plants, which are one-to-one with colas.

Nirgundi (Chinese twig). Shrubs resemble lupine or cannabis in structure. Leaves with 5 and 7 lobes, resinous inflorescences in the internodes are also present. The fragrant shrub grows large enough to camouflage a bed of cannabis. It is native to India, China and the Philippines, so it will do well in temperate and subtropical climates.

Motherwort five-lobed. A perennial plant with opposite lobed leaves and flowering internodes. When flowering in appearance resembles a bush with a main central cola. Suitable for masking purple cannabis varieties, as the inflorescences have a beautiful purple or violet color.

Nettle Dicot. This plant is considered not only a great camouflage and protection (because it burns). It needs the same conditions for its comfortable existence: moisture, loose and acidic soil, temperature, etc. It grows everywhere in temperate latitudes without being perplexing or curious. It can stretch more than 1 m in height, and during flowering it resembles a hemp bush with a major large central bark.
