Strange texture

I was hoping someone on here could help me figure this out...
I have one variety that is doing something weird. About 1 out of 5 of this strain is showing this strange leaf texture. These plants have an "angry aura" about them. They just look mad, aggressive, edgy. No other variety on the farm is doing this. And strangely enough, on another farm this strain is doing this as well. These are from seed.
I will now attempt to add pictures- pray for me
i have about 21 of these to experiment on to see if I can correct the problem. Any ideas?

some people have been suggesting it might be a recessive trait or that this is just a genetic thing, but this one is clearly ill to me.
surely someone here has seen this before? The affected plants are also stunted.

Wow! That sure looks different! I would keep it just to see if the bud structure is as different as on the vegging plant shown, and to check out the high which might be unique too. You could call it "The Angry Unicorn" or something like that if you discover it is worthy to keep a cut or make seeds from the plants for your own strain.

They don't like the soil condition they are in and not suited for this type of soil. The areas are lacking enough carbon in the soil for the plants to be happy, How I dealt with this in the past, was load the plots with a lot of leaf mold, in the fall. Too late for that, so for a faster fix now, just use some sugar and sprinkle a little around the plants. It only takes about a 1\4 cup of sugar. Now this is the "important part", after adding the sugar and watering it in, you have add dry hay and mulch heavy around the plants 2 to 4 inch's high. By flowering time your plants will change from mad to glad to being happy again. 😎

I will certainly give the sugar method a try as I said 21 plants to experiment with...
thanks for your input

You can add a table spoon of sugar to a gallon of water and water around the plant. Or you can top dress sprinkling a little around the base of the plant. Its very important to add mulch over the sugar to protect the microbes colonies, so they can break down the carbon fast. Perfect timing too, you have enough time before flowering. Happy gardening 😎
