Cannapedia Encyclopedia of cannabis strains


Sensimilla is a term used for female cannabis plants that do not contain any seeds. It means they managed to stay unpollinated, thus cannot produce any seeds and their only purpose is to produce flowers – buds.

Being unpollinated, the plants produce more cannabinoids, especially tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which causes physical and psychoactive reaction known as           being “high” or “stoned”, but also other cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN, etc., also terpenoids and other classes of natural substances.


Spanish origin

The term “sensimilla” comes from Spanish and literally means “without seeds”. There is a strong Spanish influence on cannabis growing in California, where the largest amount of cannabis in the whole America is grown. From this state, the term spread throughout the whole cannabis culture and is commonly used to describe any female plant that has grown with no seeds. Such a plant does not have to spend energy on the production of seeds, it just keeps blooming and creating more and more buds – in other words it increases the concentration and quantity of THC and other active compounds.
