Cannabis ruderalis is a low-THC, hardy subspecies of cannabis known for its autoflowering properties and resilience in harsh environments.

Cannabis ruderalis is a subspecies of the cannabis plant characterized by its small size, autoflowering ability, and low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content. It is known for its resilience and ability to grow in harsh conditions.

Differences between Cannabis Ruderalis, Indica, and Sativa

Cannabis Ruderalis is small, usually grows between 1 to 2.5 feet tall, and has a short lifecycle. It autoflowers based on age rather than light cycles and contains lower THC levels but higher CBD levels compared to other subspecies.

Cannabis Indica is a short, bushy plant with wide leaves and high THC content. It is known for its sedative effects and is often used for relaxation and sleep aid.

Cannabis Sativa is a tall, thin plant with narrow leaves and high THC content. It produces uplifting and energizing effects, often used for daytime activities and creativity.

Origin of Cannabis Ruderalis

Cannabis ruderalis originates from Central and Eastern Europe, particularly in regions like Russia and the Himalayas. It thrives in harsh climates and short growing seasons.

Cannabis ruderalis was crossed with sativa and indica genetics to produce autoflower cannabis seeds. These strains can grow on constant light cycles of 18 hours per day which along with their fast flowering times and compact size has made them the ideal cannabis plant to grow indoors.
