    Default cannabis!

    So there I was in the beeyard when I noticed some 'weeds' growing next to one hive. At closer inspection I thought....volunteer cannabis! A few days later I showed them to a more knowledgeable friend. She said 'whatever they are....they aren't cannabis'. Imagine my disap....er....relief.

    That is a good idea to plant your weed by your hives to keep away nosey neighbors, "guard bees." With the variegated leaf it looks very similar. Around here we can just go buy it at the neighborhood pot shop.

    Imo that is a male plant of the mary jane variety.
    Look at where the leaflets part from the stem. See the little "things"? That's the male "junk".
    Let it grow. If it has blue flowers that don't get you a buzz it's vitex.
    Either way you don't want to smoke it.

    Vitex is a tree. https://www.google.com/search?q=vite...HZfIk8Ql-gM%3A

    Leaf is too shiny for cannabis.

    Well, even if its not pot, Vitex was on the "recommended bee plants" list.
    ( along with a bunch of other stuff that my bees ignore!)

    I've had Vitex growing and the bees love it. Here they bloom in summer during the dearth and are covered with every imaginable bee including honey bees.

    Beerz tell Bernie pot is wind pollinated, but they may still collect some pollen and bring it home.

    Would have had me fooled, but yes, the leaves are shiny.

    Better yet - keep the valuables in a beehive.
    If you got any, say, gold coins.
