Even if you consider yourself a canna-connoisseur, you may be a little unfamiliar with sensimilla. If you’ve never heard of it, don’t worry! We’re breaking down everything there is to know about this type of cannabis.
What is sensimilla?
There is a little dispute when it comes to the exact definition of sensimilla. Most people agree that it is a seedless marijuana flower that’s been carefully tended to, resulting in a nearly perfect bud. However, other people say that it’s a rare, extremely potent cannabis that comes from either Amsterdam or the American South West. One thing everyone can agree on is the name. It comes from the Spanish language and literally translates to ‘without seeds.’ Therefore, a true sensimilla will never contain any seeds in the flower.
Is sensimilla sativa or indica?
Contrary to popular belief, sensimilla is not a specific strain of cannabis. It is neither sativa, indica, or hybrid. Sensimilla is a highly concentrated form of female cannabis flower that has never been exposed to male plants, and can therefore be any strain.
Is sensimilla rare?
Back in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, it was rare to come by this specific type of cannabis flower. But in this day and age, growers have a lot of resources to grow sensimilla. With so many cannabis flowers on the market, growers have to keep up with popular demand for flowers with a high THC content, like sensimilla. Growers typically grow it indoors, in greenhouse conditions with careful watch.
Can anyone grow it?
Anyone can grow sensimilla. The only thing you have to do is to prevent it from being fertilized by a male plant and carefully tend to it. A lot of people want to grow it, since it produces flower with a higher THC content than a regular cannabis flower.
