Sinsemilla, as we explained, just describes bud without seeds. The word can be used for any type of female cannabis plant that wasn’t fertilised, regardless of the strain. As such, sinsemilla can be either indica or sativa.
Of course. Less seeds means more flowers, more resin, more aroma, and more “oomph” when you’re smoking. The purpose of sinsemilla is to give folks the best cannabis experience. So yes, sinsemilla means it’s time to blaze!
A little later, when indoor cultivation became popular, the separation of male and female cannabis plants became even easier and more commonplace. Growers could simply keep each in a separate grow room or tent to limit the risk of accidental pollination.
CAN YOU SMOKE SINSEMILLA?
Pollinated female cannabis plants spend a lot of their energy on producing seeds. But unless you are a breeder and require the seeds, this is not what you want. Unfertilised females don’t produce seeds, but instead spend energy on producing resin. As such, seedless buds have higher levels of cannabinoids and aromatic substances—they are more potent and will taste better.
If you’re interested in cannabis and cannabis culture (and we have an inkling you may well be…), chances are you’ve come across the word “sinsemilla”. Interestingly enough, there is some confusion among people as to what sinsemilla really means.
The word sinsemilla comes from the Spanish words “sin” (“without”) and “semilla” (“seed”), so it literally translates to “without seeds”. Contrary to what some may think, sinsemilla cannabis does not refer to a specific strain, subtype, or geographic location. The word is simply used to describe seedless cannabis flowers that come from unfertilised female plants.
It is thought that the word sinsemilla was coined in the 1970s, around the time when cultivation started ramping up in the US and Europe. Here it was used to differentiate seedless weed from the poorer stock. As the “new” weed was indeed better and more potent, this gave rise to the misconception of sinsemilla being a different, very strong variety of cannabis.
Remember back in the day when people used to complain about seeds in their bag of brick weed from Mexico? What we were really complaining about is a ton of more free smoke.. Could you imagine someone complaining because they have way too much herb lying around the house? Remember that one seed can wind up being ounces if not pounds of Cannabis. Just because everyone else complains about seeds doesn’t mean it’s an accurate perception on the matter. Consider shifting your perspective on this one. I hope to see some dispensaries influenced by my words here today.

I truly believe us modern stoner’s are spoiled with astronomically potent buds. A bag of pot with a few seeds in it can still produce an adequate high. Just because it has seeds doesn’t mean the herb is going to be low quality either. It will still have the aroma, taste, and desired effects. The truth is that most of us consume far more Cannabis than we need to in order to obtain a satisfactory high. We forget about tolerance, and we forget to consider the level of intoxication we obtained the first time we ever consumed our majestic herb. The lower your tolerance, the more intense the high. Extreme un-natural percentages of THC and other cannabinoids in the plant material is not “vital” as people have been taught.
Finally, another great reason seeded pot isn’t such a bad idea is that it provides the buyer with seeds to grow more. I know this sounds like the capitalist worst nightmare but how many of you enjoyed buying from greedy dirt bags on the street who treated you with disdain in the past because you didn’t have as much money for them as they wanted? If a supplier can do something as kind as give away seeds, that’s the kind of supplier the people want. We also need to consider how the plant feels. Reach out with your empathy and consider the fact that a happy bush is a kinder bush.
Aside from the preservation of organic genetics, we should put ourselves in the cannabis plants shoes. Sinsemilla is basically female plants which are deprived from males. They are not allowed to make love and reproduce. An entire life without being around the opposite sex or being allowed to have sex must be quite a stressful time right? Removing males is simply an unnatural process. Like many other statements in life, people hear “remove the males” and run with it. They fail to give it any additional thought.

Today more than ever, seedless Marijuana is in high demand. There are many reasons though for modern growers and consumers to consider growing, selling, and using seeded varieties too. With such dangers as illegal government raids, and Monsanto’s GMO ( Genetically Engineered Organisms ), a bag full of seeds isn’t sounding like such a bad idea. Why does everything have to be about the capitalism anyway? Preservation of non-gmo or heirloom genetics is worth far more than being excessively over-protective of ones profits. Remember hybrids and gmo’s are not the same, as one is a natural process of reproduction and the other is done in a laboratory.
