hawaii marijuana seed laws

Regular cannabis seeds contain a mixture of both female and male marijuana plants.

This means that you can expect at least 50% of the seeds that you purchased to be male marijuana plants, which you will later have to throw away once you identify the gender.

When germinated and planted, cannabis seeds are what grow into a marijuana plant. Marijuana is a type of dioecious, which means it has female and male reproductive organs that are located on separate plants.
