Plants That Look Like Marijuana
Several plants can look like marijuana, with the most common being lamb’s quarters and staghorn sumac. But there are other similar-looking plants as well, including Aloe and Dogbane Hemp. Here are some tips that will help you identify these cannabis lookalikes:
The leaves of lamb’s quarters are heart-shaped, and its stems grow in a way that makes them look like marijuana. However, the plant is edible and can be used as a salad or cooked vegetable. It tastes similar to spinach, but it has less vitamins A and C than spinach. The seeds are also edible when they have dried out after ripening in late summer.
Aloe is a succulent plant with a large, fleshy stem. It has sharp, pointed teeth on its leaves and grows in a clump. Aloe comes from the Aloe genus of flowering plants in the Xanthorrhoeaceae family, which also includes agave and yucca. Aloe flowers are yellow or red and grow on spikes emerging from the center of each leaf rosette. The sap of aloes contains active ingredients that are used as an ingredient in cosmetics products such as moisturizers and sunscreens as well as skin treatments for burns or wounds.
Staghorn sumac is a deciduous shrub or small tree that can grow up to 15 feet tall. It has a red stem, red berries, and white powdery substance on the leaves. The leaves themselves are large and have smooth edges that curve upwards. They have a pale green color in springtime but turn bright red in fall when they change colors. Staghorn sumac grows wild across North America but is most common along the eastern seaboard from Canada to Texas and eastward into Florida.
The plant produces flowers in late spring or summer depending on where it’s growing (in colder climates it blooms later). The flowers are grouped together at the top of each branch in clusters; each cluster contains up to 50 individual flowers which are light yellowish-green with five petals each.
Devil’s tobacco is a type of poisonous plant that grows in the tropical regions of Asia and Africa. It has small white flowers, which look like they have green leaves attached to them. The plant has purple berries on it, but those are actually seeds; most people don’t eat them because it’s so poisonous!
If you’re wondering what this looks like when it’s not covered with soil and dead leaves or stems, here is an image from Google Images:
Hops is a member of the Cannabaceae family and its members are used for making beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages. The plant can be grown as an annual or perennial ground cover in temperate climates where it grows from 15 to 50 feet tall with a vine that can grow up to several hundred feet long. Hops cones are between 1/4 inch and 1 inch in diameter and contain female flowers that produce pollen when pollinated by male flowers on the same plant (which occurs during the summer months).
In addition to the similarities between dogbane hemp and marijuana, there are also some important differences. While both plants belong to the Apocynaceae family, dogbane hemp is a tall, erect plant with purple flowers that grows up to 4 feet in height. It has small leaves with no central vein on its lower side; instead, it has two opposite pairs of veins running along each side of its leaf stalks. It does not have any stamens or pistils (5), but it does have pollen-producing structures called anthers at its tips (6).
Dogbane hemp seeds will germinate after being left outdoors for at least 30 days during warm weather conditions such as summertime temperatures above 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 C) or wintertime temperatures below 40 degrees F (-40 C).
Henbit and Houndstongue Hemp
- Plant with opposite leaves and square stems.
- Plant with small white flowers, where the petals are fused together at their bases into a tube.
Speedwells (Veronica) are a group of flowering plants in the plantain family Plantaginaceae. They are annual or perennial herbaceous plants. They are native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere.
Speedwells (Veronica) have been cultivated as garden flowers since at least 1590 AD and were grown by Shakespeare’s contemporaries. The genus name is derived from the Greek veronikos, meaning “truthful”. Speedwells have been long associated with truth in folklore: they were believed to bloom around St John’s Day (June 24th), when honesty was required for success; if you could pick all four species of speedwell before sunrise on Midsummer Day, you would be granted good luck for a whole year.
