It's very small, something ate the most of it. There's one big bud, I'm not sure if it's good to go. Also, the smaller buds kinda look like male ones, but I'm not sure, because it looks like there are trichomes. Another question, can I just harvest the big ones and leave the little ones to grow some more?

I only looked at the first photo but it doesn't look anywhere near ready... Take a magnifying glass and wait for the crystals to start looking foggy... There should be a mix of foggy and amber crystals when its ready...

 

Buds shrink TONS when they have been harvested... I would let that go as long as you can so it fills out a bit... They are going to shrink to nothing and likely pack little to no punch if you pull them now.

Those "male" flowers you speak of, look more like pollinated flowers forming seeds.

Hermaphrodites are common in in feminized seed grown plants next generation.

I didn't even read the part about being male and only looked at the first photo.... I am with Boebs... you have a herm it looks like and I do think he is right about seeds potentially forming... I think it is more likely seeds than male flowers due to the fact that males usually show themselves pretty early on. You see the male flowers long before serious bud production. Though... the bud production isn't all that serious...

 

Sorry for not reading it better from the get go... I go on here at work and the threads don't always get my full attention.

 

When did you plant this and where in the country are you? If this is happening presently, you planted her/it/them/him way too late in the season...

I did plant pretty late. I started it somewhere in may. I'm thinking about not harvesting since usually there's no frost around here. The temperature may drop to zero for a couple of hours on the coldest nights. I'll be leaving the country soon and I won't have time to dry it anyway. This way, if it survives the winter then my friend will be able to harvest it next fall. If I do harvest, it'll have only two leaves left so I guess that lowers the chance of it surviving.

This is the Carlie brown Christmas tree version of bud, I hope it goes as well for you as it did for them.

Don’t forget to sing to it in a circle with your friends.

Honestly I would probably chop it down and quick dry it for a little smoke when the trichs are right... it’s Definitely a hemaphrodite and if it was me I wouldn’t keep the seeds that are forming (big chance they will herm too) and I wouldn’t try to keep it alive either because it will herm again if it manages to reveg and probably be even worse the second time it flowers.

Sorry to say it but I’d cut my losses and smoke what she gave me when she’s ready and try again with different seed next year.
