The cannabis seed is ovular in shape, about the size of a peppercorn, pointy on both ends, and has a ridge that runs longitudinally from tip to tip on only one side. When seeds germinate, this ridge widens up. The rounded side is the one opposite. Although undeveloped and unfertilized seeds are often smaller in size and sometimes have an off-white appearance, the body of the seed is brown. The body of a marijuana seed is patterned or striped, most frequently with light brown specks, however certain cannabis cultivars might have red or yellow markings. All cells that will eventually differentiate into leaves, roots, and stems are found in plant embryos, which are enclosed within seeds. The pericarp is the outer covering that surrounds embryos, which are found inside the reproductive organs. The cotyledons, which emerge from the seed as the first leaves, and the radicle, which matures into the major root, are essential parts of the plant embryo. A specific structure known as a root cap shields the plant's growing tips once the seed germinates and starts to develop into a mature plant.
