The seed is develop inside an achene (dry product that contains a single seed, with the outer shell independent of it) without the albumen, the seed is 3-6 mm long and 2.5-4 mm wide, is oval in shape, and varies in color from brown to grayish, or mottled, it also has a hard pericarp made up of two welded leaflets, the weight of the seed would be between 3 and 60 mg, generally ranging between 15 – 20 mg.
The leaves vary in shape and size according to their position on the stem and the sex of the plant. They are opposite in almost ¾ parts of the stem, until the phyllotaxis change occurs, which coincides with the insertion of the inflorescence, then they become alternate.
The first leaves are webbed and have only one leaflet but as the plant grows the number of these increases.
The male flowers are branched, they have 5 sepals of yellow and/or purple color, a greater number of long lax bracts and form auxiliary panicles. Once the flower matures, they open, leaving 5 stamens with their hanging longitudinal dehiscence binocular anthers that generate a large amount of pollen.
The female flowers are broad-leaved, short and very grouped, simulating the shape of a spike.
On the market there are many ways to present CBD, such as oils, pills, creams, tinctures, etc.
Almost 50% of the world hemp oil market is concentrated in the food and nutritional supplement industry.
Needs of Cultivation
The Optimal temperature for seed germination is 24ºC, although this can occur at temperatures of 0ºC. For germination to occur, a thermal sum of 90ºC is required with a threshold temperature of 0ºC. From the emergence of the plant, the growth and emission of new leaves occurs when they accumulate approximately 22ºC with a threshold temperature of 5, 7ºC
The duration of the hemp development cycle is variable, the first cultivars require between 110 and 130 days from the appearance of the seedlings to the flower, while the very late cultivars require between 160 and 180 days
It has to be cultivated in a deep and very humid soil, because in any circumstance it likes water and humidity. Hemp is suitable for excellent and well-fertilized soils, and adds that it is not sown but in good quality fresh / wet soil, which guarantees that the plant will sprout and that dry land is purposely good quality, juicy, flat and neighboring to river since the hemp seed is one of the seeds that penetrate the earth a lot to attract its substance, leaving it exhausted. That is why there are many of opinion, that this land be sterilized so that it can be planted in the next year, because that is how everything entrusted
