This article will feature the process of cultivation of Cannabis Ruderalis. It is practically an overlooked individual from the cannabis family. Resulting, for a long time there was only curiosity about the specification of this species. No one puts too much attention on the development of this species as they do for others. However, in recent times the growth of cannabis Ruderalis has become a great interest to people. And many have started learning and studying its cultivation process. There’s a lot of benefits and advantages to growing this plant which is easy and productive. Its short life cycle of cultivation makes it very beneficial. People who use medical marijuana should be carefully aware of its uses. Further, awareness should be based on the knowledge provided to people about its different aspects.
Given below information are related to the cultivation of Cannabis Ruderalis or medical marijuana:
Cultivation Ruderalis In Pure form
Back in 1980, the cultivation of the seeds of Cannabis Ruderalis as medical marijuana has also traced the seeds that were first taken into a Seed bank in Amsterdam. This was ideally taken to be able to enhance or make the cultivation process of the cannabis Ruderalis better. This species is very easy to cultivate and they are naturally very hard and resilient to harsh weather conditions. They have a short life cycle and thus if cultivated properly with expertise there is a possibility to harvest 2/3 times a year.
It is also worth mentioning that, the overall content of the primary psychoactive chemical i.e. the THC is less in Ruderalis than the other variants. Therefore, Ruderalis is not at all considered an option for use as a recreational drug. It also has limited use or application for the process of hemp production. Hence the growths of Ruderalis are mainly for medical purposes due to their high content of Cannabidiol.
Cultivating Ruderalis Hybrids
They say that Ruderalis, in its early stages, has autoflowering characteristics. Also, the plants are capable of a stronger form of resistance to pests and diseases hence breeders have an inclination towards them. Hence, allowing a cross between Cannabis Indica with a Ruderalis lets on to form a variant with a high content of the psychoactive component THC. As a result, a cross-compound called Cannabis x intersita Sojak has come out of the Indica and Ruderalis mix. Also, the cultivation of Ruderalis variant can produce a particular strain of Cannabis which has an overall reduction in its growing period. Finally, a cross between Ruderalis and Indica and Sativa forms an autoflowering plant that matures in approximately 10 weeks.
