The male plant bears staminate flowers and the female plant pistillate flowers which eventually develop into the fruit and seeds. In the early herbals the sexes were in fact erroneously assigned, with the plant bearing seeds referred to as seede hempe, male hempe or Cannabis mas and the plant bearing flowers alone referred to as barren hempe, female hempe or Cannabis femina. Occasionally monoecious plants are encountered bearing both male and female flowers; these may arise as a result of special breeding (Small and Cronquist, 1976).
