Hermies in Action
Pictures show Hermie Plant (Both Male and Female). Most of you would throw this plant out of your grow area because you do not want it to pollenate the rest of the crop.
Pictures show the Male Flower Pod (Looks like a Yellow banana), with extreme closeup showing even the Very Tiny (about the size of a grain of taclum powder) Pollen in the sack.
Also shows the Female bud, and hairs that were pollenated by itself and the resulting seed sacks.
Does this mean that if you grow marijuana from the seed in your bud it will grow a hermaphrodite too?

Those pollen sacks are open too. Bummer.

Just did a post on this one else where! Do Seeds breed true
"If I understand the question correctly, yes you would have a plant of the same genetic (produced breed true). But you can end up with hermaphrodites like the picture below."
Very unusual but happens sometimes.
This is a plant that has both sexes.
Article taken from: Difference between male and female marijuana and cannabis plants and Hermaphrodite Marijuana Plants
What is a Hermaphrodite plant?
An hermaphrodite, or hermie, is a Marijuana plant of one sex that develops the sexual organs of the other sex. Most commonly, a flowering female Marijuana plant will develop staminate flowers, though the reverse is also true. Primarily male hermaphrodites are not as well recognized only because few growers let their males reach a point of flowering where the pistillate would be expressed.
Hermaphrodites are generally viewed with disfavor. First, they will release pollen and ruin a sinsemelia crop, pollinating themselves and all of the other females in the room. Second, the resulting seeds are worthless, because hermaphrodite parents tend to pass on the tendency to their offspring.
Please note that occassionally specious staminate flowers will appear in the last days of flowering of a female Marijuana plant. These do not drop pollen and their appearance is not considered evidence of deleterious hermaphroditism.
Here's an image of a hermaphrodite, specifically a female Marijuana plant with staminate flowers.

You could collect pollen from it and use it to make feminized seeds with any other female.
