What do male cannabis plants look like?
Cannabis plants can be male or female, but only female plants produce buds. Because of that, most growers try to identify and remove male plants as soon as possible.
So what do male cannabis plants look like? I know a lot of growers dread them but in some cases they can actually be surprisingly beautiful! Male pollen sacs open up and look like flowers 🙂
Here’s a picture gallery of several different male marijuana plants for your reference!

Sometimes when they first start growing in they look like a bunch of grapes
When pollen sacs open up, they look like flowers – well they are flowers in a way, but you know what I mean 🙂
A fully formed male plant – this is what male plants typically look like if you let them grow out
This male-looking plant was covered in pollen sacs in a similar formation as buds. Before this, I’ve never seen a male plant with such little pollen sacs before! I learned this is a female plant that was reversed to make pollen sacs as part of the process of making feminized seeds.
Male plants looking up at the sky! These pollen sacs have turned purple, which sometimes happens with males just like female plants 🙂
