A calyx (sometimes called a bract) is part of a female cannabis flower (picture and diagram). What we think of as cannabis “buds” or “flowers” are actually a collection of “calyxes” crowded together and on top of each other. If we weren’tharvesting them for their psychoactive effects, calyxes would become the homes to any seeds your plant produces after being pollinated.
