Pistil

The pistil is are the tiny strands found on a female cannabis plant that looks like hair. The pistil traps pollen because it coated with sticky resin. Different types of cannabis have various pistils but they all serve the same purpose. Pollen spreads to the pistil by rain, wind, birds, and insects.
When the plants are ready to be fertilized, the pistil starts to accumulate male pollen. How the pistils look can be an indicator of the plant’s maturity.
