female marijuana plant has a few seeds

this is how some seeds companies produce female seeds, by over maturing a plant until it produces pollen

as long as its only just a few seeds i wouldn’t worry about it
its quite normal for a plant to make a few seeds when they are fully mature
they may throw a few narnas that you can see, or just make a few seeds you find when you open some of the buds
the amount of seed produced should be very low, i would not call these hermi’s

a hermi will make a huge amount of seeds and will show both male and female flowers pretty early on during growth

i have noticed myself lower popcorn shitty buds are more likely to throw a few seeds
i think this could be because these lower buds seem to mature too fast because they get less light, by the time you harvest
these lower buds can be over mature full of brown pistils and some seeds

a hermi will make a huge amount of seeds and will show both male and female flowers pretty early on during growth

i think many people do not grow enough plants or mature them long enough to notice that more often than not, a plant/strain will make a seed or two
this is normal

Among the early signs that your female has been pollinated is that her bracts become larger. Bracts are small, leaf-like structures that protect the female’s reproductive parts. These are the sites from which the flowering buds appear. Do not confuse the bracts with calyxes.

Male plants won’t show hairs at these nodes, but will develop little sacs of pollen. These pollen sacs will look like little balls. These balls can appear on their own or in clusters, depending how far into the pre-flowering stage the plant is. At some later stage of growth, the pollen sacs will burst open, spilling the pollen and possibly pollinating your females.

HOW TO AVOID POLLINATION OF YOUR FEMALE PLANTS

A good test to see whether the bracts have swollen is to take a pair of tweezers, grab one bract, and open it up. If there is a seed inside, you have a pollinated plant.

The typical cannabis grower normally doesn’t have a reason to keep males, and will want to get rid of them as soon as they are spotted. Cannabis breeders, on the other hand, may want to keep males along with their crop of female plants. In such cases, the breeder will normally separate the sexes to avoid any accidental pollination. They may grow females in one tent and males in another. When grown outdoors, such as in a garden, the males are often kept in the most remote corner of their growing area, as far from the females as possible. Even then, because of the wind carrying around the pollen, there is always some risk of accidental pollination.

Spotting male cannabis plants and pollinated females early can save you from investing further time and effort into an entire growing season that will be for naught. Most of the time, the best course of action is to get rid of the males along with your pollinated ladies and just start a new grow.
