Marijuana Seeds

Cannabis is grown from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Seeds carry genetic information from two parent plants that can be expressed in numerous different combinations, some like the mother, some like the father, and many presenting various traits from both. Generally, commercial cannabis producers will plant many seeds of one strain and choose the best plant. They will then take clones from that individual plant to get consistent genetics for mass production.

What are cannabis seeds?

Cannabis can be either male or female—also called “dioecious”—but only females produce the buds we all know and love. However, for reproduction, the flower of a female plant must be pollinated by a male plant, after which the female flower produces seeds.

Once the seeds are mature, the female plant begins to die, and seeds are either dropped to the ground where they germinate and grow into new cannabis plants the next spring, or they are harvested for processing into seed oil, food products, or to be sown to become the next generation of plants.

To get the buds you find in medical and recreational stores, female cannabis plants are grown in an environment without males—or the males are removed from the area before they release pollen—so that the females don’t create seeds. This high-potency marijuana is traditionally known as “sinsemilla,” meaning “seedless.”

Where can I buy cannabis seeds?

Cannabis seeds can be found on numerous online seedbanks, but note that it is illegal to bring seeds into the US and Customs will seize any cannabis seeds that they find in packages or on a person. In legal and medical states, you may purchase seeds at a dispensary.

Regular Marijuana seeds means a mixture of male and female seeds. These are avaible with varying proportions. Male plants have to be removed or planted separately in order to avoid pollination. However, if you are planning to breed new seeds, the male plants are essential.

Feminized seeds only grow into female plants with resin carrying buds. This will directly result in a higher yield of the home grown Cannabis. These seeds are best suited if the cultivator wants to skip the removal of the male plants and is only interested in breeding resin-carrying buds.

If you want to simplify the cultivation even more, you should opt for autoflowering Marijuana seeds. These will reach florescence independent from altering lighting cycles – which a usually a core requirement. Furthermore, these species need less cultivation time and are hence earlier ready for the harvest.
