Hummers Love Hemp!
Because the Indian hemp plant is dioecious in nature, and even in rare moments ‘hermaphrodite’, the array of genetic combinatorial potentials to create forward as true breeding traits is truly astronomical in the Cannabis plant.
If you were able to line up the entire genetic lettering of either gamete, or if you could unwind and line up the entire cannabis genome side by side from one complete achene, you would find a dizzying compliment of alleles to choose amongst the ten separate, yet interchangeably ‘sticky' chromosomes.
It is a fact of science that genes can and do jump from one chromosome to the other, and to create a plant that expresses true bred anthocyanin (blue flowers) is not an easy task to perform botanically.
So, it is the colors first that attract the hummers, and then secondarily, the science behind the expression.
Here, in the subject picture, you have a sativa-indica dominant medicinal expression of the Cannabacaea family of plants.
Sativas, as landraces, have been grown primarily around the equatorial belts for millennia.
If you look closely, you can even see the emergence of the cannabis flower buds, or #cannabuds in this picture, as well as the crystal trichomes that carry the medicine of the plant.
My guess is that the subject plant is a juvenile female, one that is currently emerging into full blossom, waiting as most if not all other female plants and creatures on this planet are, to be fertilized by a male of the species in order to produce seeds and embryos that represent the next generation.
We as humans have a certain affinity towards this plant, having consumed its seeds, along with our avian friends, for thousands and thousands of years.
The seeds of the hemp plant, as nature and the birds do know, have the highest Omega 6 to Omega 3 complimentary ratio of any plant based oil on our planet.
Hence, you may ask me why this is a ‘pretty' plant.
My answer is “because it is!”
And, further, I am in no position to argue with our dwindling songbird population here in North America (Mexico, the United States, and Canada).
Take away their hemp plants…and, you take away their natural source of seeds for food.
We once and still do have a treaty on the books here in America that protects our avian friends from acts of extinction.
Now, if the US Congress possesses plenary powers to legislate for the protection of the public domain, then the US Congress has to take into consideration all possibile accounts for such protection, including the protection of our migratory songbirds and the source of their birdseed, the widespread Indian hemp plant.
"It is, therefore, the responsibility of the US Congress to protect these natural guardians against hostile insects, which if not held in check would result in the inevitable destruction of all legacy prairie and primal forest lands."~ Louis Marshall, before the US Supreme Court upholding the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 in Missouri v. Holland, 252 U.S. 416 (1920)
Now, comes Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., a Civil War veteran, then a US Federal Supreme Court Justice, writing for the court majority stating…
"The case before us must be considered in light of our whole experience as a nation, and not merely in light of what was said a hundred years ago."
"The only question is whether the destruction of the Indian hemp plant is forbidden by some invisible radiation emanating from the general terms of the 10th Amendment.”
"We must consider what this country has become, when deciding what that amendment has reserved."
"I see nothing in the Constitution of the United States that compels the Federal government to sit by while a food supply vital to our national songbird population is cut off, and in that latent process thus detroy our nation’s supply of valuable Indian hemp plant!”
"We, therefore, by our acquiescence denigrate the ability of our avian friends to protect our forests from insects, and our national and state crops from voracious borers and caterpillars!"
"It is not sufficient to rely upon the States to protect our songbirds and their hemp plants, and to ensure a wholesome, productive and fruitful life for both species, bird and plant."
"Such reliance is vain."
"Were it otherwise, the question then bcomes whether or not the United States is forbidden to act in the songbird and the hemp plant’s best interests."
"It is my express hope and desire that we as citizens wake up and once again give back to our songbirds, the plant that was given to them by our creator."
"The birds will not mind if we grow the Indian hemp plant once again in this country, I assure you.”
"And, we as a society will be much better off taking care of the plant as good husbands, rather than destroying the plant as we have so insidiously promoted and done in this generation, and in generations now past."
"Please aid our cause."
"Every day in and day out throughout our entire fifty states plants, birds, and people do suffer because of Cannabis prohibition (especially in California, Colorado, and the State of Washington)."
"And, throughout all of the geographical flashpoints in our nation’s struggle to legalize the Indian hemp plant for household consumption there exists many people, plants and birds that do suffer grieviously that require your help.”
"Therefore, give of yourself and of your financial support generously."
"A mind once stretch’d by a new idea never regains it’s original dimensions."~ Steve Jobs, 1955 - 2011
