Aside from producing cannabis through seeds, or sexual reproduction, you can also reproduce the plant through cloning, or asexual reproduction. A clone is a cutting that is genetically identical to the plant it was taken from—that plant is known as the “mother.”
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the chemical components—known collectively as cannabinoids—found in the cannabis plant. Over the years, humans have selected plants for high-THC content, making cannabis with high levels of CBD rare. The genetic pathways through which THC is synthesized by the plant are different than those for CBD production.
What are feminized cannabis seeds?
You can also minimize headaches and avoid the hassle of seed germination and sexing plants by starting with clones.
Immature seeds tend to be light in color and have a soft outer shell.
Finding a cannabis seed in your stash is not ideal, but we’ve all been there before. Although much less common than it once was, it still happens. Sometimes you’ll notice one when grinding down some flower, or you’ll see one pop, spark, and crackle from the heat of a lit bowl.
However, space isn’t usually an issue outdoors. Growers can cultivate tall and productive plants that provide bigger yields.
The amount of water you give will also depend on the size of your container. Use these figures to administer the right amount of water for your pot size:
Indoors or outdoors?
If possible, change your clothes before entering the female grow space. Any lingering pollen could accidentally fertilise unselected plants.
It’s also critical to learn how to water your plant properly. Too much water can cause root rot, and too little can result in nutrient uptake issues.
Likewise, cross a regular male with a high-THC or high-CBD strain to boost cannabinoid levels.
