marijuana without seeds

Today, marijuana users are spoiled by a combination of easy access and extremely high-quality bud. Past generations relied on low-grade schwag illegally smuggled into the country. Today’s cannabis consumers can walk into a dispensary and buy the best weed they can afford.

As a result, very few people risked growing weed in North America and Europe until the 1960s. At that time, breeders walked the famous ‘hippy trail’ and began taking seeds back from Asia.

Nowadays, high THC strains are common, so it is now a question of finding weed with the right aroma and taste.

When Did We First Gain Access to Sinsemilla?

Even so, the old-school Mexican brick, filled with seeds, has been replaced by the high-quality marijuana we call ‘sinsemilla.’

Most of the marijuana smuggled into Europe and North America came from India, Pakistan, Mexico, Thailand, Colombia, and Jamaica. The vast majority of this weed was full of seeds making for a harsh smoking experience and relatively low THC.

Those who lived through the dark days of the 1960s were lucky to get their hands on low-grade Mexican brick weed. However, today, high-quality sinsemilla cannabis is the norm.

Popular strains such as Kush and Skunk have been around since the 1980s. Neville’s Haze was around in the 1970s and is just a single step removed from a landrace. Most experts now agree that there was premium weed 40+ years ago, but hardly anyone was fortunate enough to use it.

Cannabis can be male or female, and in the wild males pollinate females, which then produce seeds. The genetics of both male and female plants are passed down to the seeds, so that when a female plant dies—cannabis is an annual, growing and dying each year—it drops seeds, which grow into new plants the following spring.

Growing cannabis with seeds is beneficial for the natural evolution of the plant. Plants naturally evolved within their environment, picking up traits and characteristics that helped them better survive their environment.

History of sinsemilla

A Spanish term meaning “seedless,” sinsemilla refers to cannabis grown without seeds. In the wild, cannabis grows seeds along with buds so when it dies, it will grow again the following year. Growing sinsemilla cannabis was adopted in the 1960s and ‘70s to produce buds without seeds for consumers, by only growing bud-producing female cannabis plants and not allowing them to get pollinated.

“Sinsemilla is the only way to grow premium cannabis.”

“I only buy sinsemilla flower.”
