Noun | ˈstāmin

The reproductive element characteristic to the male cannabis plant. There are two parts to the stamen — a tubelike filament or stalk and anthers, or pollen sacs, which are located at the end of the filament or stalk and are where pollen is produced and stored until it’s ready to be released for fertilization.


One easy way to determine a plant’s sex is to look for the stamen, which is only found on male cannabis plants.

Stamen start to develop between four and six weeks into the growing cycle — which can help growers identify male cannabis plants.
