There are numerous cannabis seeds on the market. Briefly summarised you can divide these into three groups:
If you want to grow cannabis seeds it’s very important that you cultivate female plants. The male plant only produces pollen and when pollinizes other plants they produce ultimately seed, so these aren’t any good. A female plant produces the flower, your buds. So if you want to grow for personal use, you only need to grow female cannabis plants.
The plants from regular cannabis seeds can both be male and female. If you have ordered 10 regular cannabis seeds for instance, you can’t know if the plants will become male or female, most probably male/famale would be 5/5. When they are cultivated in good circumstances, you are more likely to grow female plants.
1) Regular cannabis seeds
We would like to explain the difference between the different type of cannabis seeds.
Feminized cannabis seeds are genetically altered so that they produce female plants in at least 97% of the cases. This forms a great advantage as only female cannabis plants produce flowers. The male cannabis plants don’t produce flowers, contain little THC and can even influence the production of THC of female plants. The female cannabis plant produces considerably more working substances such as THC, CBD, CBG and CBN than a male cannabis plant. Before bringing the seeds on the market, they are first thoroughly tested and further cultivated so that we are sure that our plants are genetically stable and consistent.
Breeders create autoflowering seeds by using Cannabis ruderalis genetics—the subspecies that contains the autoflowering trait.
Do feminized strains tickle your fancy? If so, check out these three top-quality specimens below.
Feminized seeds were created to maximise the chances of germinating female plants. To be precise, the chances of a female emerging are around 99.9%. The odds are in your favour if you’re seeking flowers over pollen sacs!
We know what you’re thinking; how on Earth can a female suddenly grow balls?! Well, there are two different ways to achieve this.
If you want nothing but resinous flowers from your grow, then feminized seeds are for you.
Autoflowering strains get their name from their ability to flower without a change in the light cycle. They are easy to grow, fast to flower, and maintain stealthy sizes.
They’re also ideal if you have limited space. You can still achieve a good yield in a small tent by growing several plants and utilising the sea of green (SOG) method.
