It’s smaller than indica and sativa, its buds are sparse, and its Latin name literally means “growing among waste.” But this plant, grown in the toughest conditions, produces the most valuable flower. Cannabis ruderalis is the next big thing in weed culture, and The New Amsterdam is happy to tell you why.
Early Dutch botanists slept on ruderalis because it’s incredibly hard to breed. It cannot be grown indoors, its recessive genes don’t show up in most cross-breeds, and it doesn’t produce much flower. But the plant’s low concentration of THC and high concentration of CBD make the growing process well worth the hassle.
Cannabis ruderalis is valuable for patients looking to treat anxiety, epilepsy, and depression. It’s even being used as a form of cancer treatment. We put the most work into the tiniest plant and found the biggest payoff, and we’re proud to share our prize with you.
