Ask yourself a few questions to decide if it’s worth the time and energy to grow the seed.
Cannabis can be either male or female—also called “dioecious”—but only females produce the buds we all know and love. For reproduction, males have pollen sacs and pollinate females, causing female flowers to produce seeds.
For a seed to be viable, it must be mature enough to have a completely formed genetic blueprint, and it must be strong enough to germinate and pop through its hard casing and sprout its crucial taproot.
Was the seed found in good weed?
Another drawback to clones is they can take on negative traits from the mother plant as well. If the mother has a disease, attracts pests, or grows weak branches, its clones will probably have the same issues.
These are referred to as “bagseeds” and whether or not you can grow one will depend on where it came from.
If growing male and female cannabis seeds, they’ll start to show their sex organs, or “pre-flowers,” after 8-10 weeks from germination.
If cannabis is legal in your state, you can buy seeds or clones from a local dispensary, or online through various seed banks.
