This is one of the Wasp Mimic Moths or Clearwing Moths in the family Sesiidae. We believe we have identified it as a Strawberry Crown Moth, Synanthedon bibionipennis, thanks to images on BugGuide. Were there strawberry plants nearby? According to BugGuide: “Larvae bore in the roots near the crown or in the stems near the base of various species in the Rose family (Fragaria, Rosa, Rubus, Potentilla). Considered to be a pest of strawberries. Adults take nectar from many different flowers.” Since Cannabis is not in the Rose family Rosaceae, we suspect your plant is safe from this Strawberry Crown Moth.
