Cannabis Ruderalis

What Is Ruderalis?

When we speak of a ruderalis plant, we’re talking about the family of marijuana named cannabis ruderalis. This is the scientific name, and it works much the same as cannabis sativa and cannabis indica in identifying a specific subspecies of the plant family. Cannabis ruderalis plants are often found in some of the harshest places in the world. You can usually find these plants in very mountainous or rocky regions, with some of the coolest and wettest climates in the world. Understandably, this doesn’t make a very good climate for marijuana to grow in, so this family of cannabis has become highly specialized. Over time, they’ve evolved to grow in such a way that they’re able to efficiently survive in these conditions. One of the main aspects of this evolution is their flowering behaviour. This is exactly the thing that’s made them so useful in the modern day cannabis industry. Because of the very low daily light hours and bad weather in native ruderalis regions, these plants begin flowering at a certain time during the year. Photoperiod plants will begin flowering once the sun begins to set at an earlier time during the day, but ruderalis plants don’t have time for this. They like to begin flowering well before the end of the growing season in order to ensure their survival. When you apply this to a modern grow operation, it allows the grower to forgo the task of reducing lighting hours to begin their plants’ budding stage.

What’s The Difference Between Ruderalis, Sativa and Indica?

At a glance, the three families of the general cannabis lineage don’t have any glaring differences. In their appearance, they all look relatively similar, with only some minor differences separating them. Cannabis sativa plants tend to grow in a slimmer and more wiry fashion, cannabis indica plants grow stockier and denser in size and in the buds, and cannabis ruderalis plants grow in smaller, lightweight and compact fashion. Where the real differences come in is how to cultivate them, and the effects they’ll give you when it’s all done. In ascending order of temperature ranges, ruderalis seeds will tolerate the lowest temperatures and humidity. Indica seeds will typically not do as well, but they will be better in cooler temperatures than sativa seeds. Sativa seeds are truly the tropical variety, and they demand the highest temperatures and wettest air out of all three. These variations are most apparent in their differing effects when smoked. Ruderalis is typically regarded to provide the least intense high out of the three. Many smokers say that ruderalis doesn’t affect them at all, so you’ll get the strongest effects out of indica and sativa plants. Indica weed will typically give users a more calming, heavy head and body high. Sativa weed gives many smokers a lighter, airy and more buzzing, energetic high. You would typically use indica pot as a strain to relax after a long day of work or sport. Sativa instead gives you a much better smoke to work out or work on a project with, to increase creativity or improve artistic expression.
