well NOT cannabis, but im sure you knew that
i dont knwo what it is but it seems interesting, does it smell EXACTLY like cannabis, because i personally love the smell myself...
though one cant find a car freshener that smells similar, neither can the average joe afford, monetarily or legally, to have cannibis on hand at all times for the pleasure of scent...
so it may be a nice alternative
Milo, that looks like Russian Thistle to me. Something you would want to keep an eye on and not let it spread.
I've been fighting (both physically and philosophically) english ivy at Marylhurst U. and Mary S. Young Park.
I know Permies have different views on 'invasives'.
For now I vow to control.
Most plants in the hops/cannabis family have separate male and female flowers. Hops cones used for brewing are female flower parts - usually you don't see many male plants around as they mess with hops production.
The phlox family is fairly diverse, and navarettia is not particularly closely related to Phlox
i thought the same thing, it says dry areas so im thinking rock springs area, and north of laramie towards wheatland reservoirs
as well as any localized dry areas - there seems to even be county by county distribution maps on USDA site
We grew a lot of CBD cannabis in our field last year. This year there are many of these sticky, cannabis smelling plants. They are small and have not flowered. Wondered what they were. Especially since we grew CBD in this field. Never have seen anything like it. And haven't grown CBD again.....yet. What is it? Related to the CBD? Oregon....west
Chris got it right. It's a skunkbush. I love the smell of cannabis as well but this is described as having an unpleasant odor. It's an annual, native to Western North America and naturalized elsewhere in the world. Hardy to zones 6-9. It has no known medicinal use that I can find but the seeds can be ground up and used as an edible powder of some sort.
Makes me wonder if cannabis also evolved its scent as a defense mechanism, and if so, how did humans come to actually enjoy the so-called unpleasant odor? By association? Either way, very interesting plant. Thanks for sharing, OP! (All those years ago lol)
