    It's been speculated to be a defense mechanism against herbivores and a shield from harmful UV rays.

    Males produce little thc and don't produce true "buds" as females do but throw tiny, pollinating flowers at leaf joints. Lose the males if you have females too unless you want a sack of seeds in a few months!
