Also known as albinism, variegation is one of the most beautiful mutations of cannabis. This can occur either fully or partially. This mutation results from a plant’s inability to produce chlorophyll. It can occur on leaves, the heads of buds, or can wash out the entire plant in white.

Strangely, one of the two plants will be a normal offspring of both mother and father. The other plant will only be a clone of the mother.

This is a common mutation, particularly in hybrid strains. The plant develops into a truly massive form – much like a tree. These massive cannabis plants look like indicas, but have the height of tropical sativas. This phenotype has one massive stalk that can grow up to 4m high. The plant looks either like a Christmas tree or a candelabra. The leaves are narrow, unlike the wider leaves of landrace sativas. While the plant is absolutely impressive and yields are prodigious, its height is a disadvantage in indoor grows.

Three-seedling polyembryonic seeds have also been reported.

This mutation hails from Australia. A breeder then took advantage of the odd variety by cultivating it into a real “strain” – although the leaf mutation can occur across various strains. This mutation gets its name from the webbed, foot-like leaves that it grows. However, the different looking leaves are just the start of it. Most ducksfoot cannabis grows up to be sativa plants.

Even so, we can always learn new and incredibly curious things from cannabis, thanks to the fact that in this day and age these plants are loved, cultivated and studied by so many people that it never ceases to amaze us.

Another curious mutation is one that causes some plants to develop small secondary buds on the leaves, often at the rachis, where the leaflets meet the leaf stem or petiole, and also on the low branches of the plant and where the secondary branches meet the stem.

On this occasion, we ‘re going to talk about the most curious genetic mutations that can appear in cannabis plants, how to distinguish them from any cultivation errors and so that you can show them to your friends and amaze them as you share a joint.

hello ,im 64 and have grown pot for 48 yrs, i got seeds in 1978 from the kush mountians the seeds were the size of a pencil eraser w pumpkin like ridges around them the plants only reached about 5ft in a full season next to some other strain that were 8-10 ft under same conditions , they had verigated leaves (always) so was not a mutation and turned almost black at maturity i carfully pollenated the most verigated flowers which were white with the male that had the most verigation the result was albino seedlings that had no green and could not photosinthize light so they did not grow i grew the strain untill i was raided and my plants and seed stock were taken while the cops were cutting down my crop they comented that the black plants were not real pot little did they know it was the mythical black ganga indica which most people have never seen or smoked those that did claimed it was laced some even had a convulsion reaction to 1 hit , and passed out early testing done by U.S gov. research on pure indica showed 75-90% thc and thcv content i havent seen any strain close to it again even when judging the cup in Holland many times , strains today have been hybirdized so much they have lost potency not gained it the pure landrace strains we grew back in the 70s an 80s much more potent like everything else you had to be there ,Mel Frank and Ed Rosenthal were there and know the truth , have fun , Aloha
