Ruderalis is a low-THC cannabis variety that is originated in Asia, Eastern Europe, and Russia. Ruderalis is primarily selected by breeders for its CBD-rich genetics, it has small and wildflower-like in appearance. Unlike Cannabis sativa and indica, which use light cycles to flower, ruderalis is an “autoflower” plant, which flowers with age but yields a smaller number of flowers compared to other species.
