One answer “Feminized seeds vs. regular seeds?

  1. When it comes to growing cannabis, two of the most commonly asked questions are “should I choose feminized seeds or regular seeds?” and “what is the difference between feminized and regular cannabis seeds?”

    The answer to these questions depends largely on what kind of harvests you wish to get out of your garden.

    Regular cannabis plants are the results of natural pollination, usually in a form of self-pollination between female and male plants. During the pollination process, the resulting offspring of a male and a female plants will be split in half resulting in a ratio of male and female plants that is roughly 50/50.

    By and large, the advantage to using regular cannabis seeds is that you get to observe the process of pollination, and you get both male and female plants in your garden. The male plants are important for their potential use as breeding stock, and for their ability to produce pollen when the reproductive cycle begins, thus creating more seeds for the next generation of plants.

    On the other hand, feminized cannabis seeds, are bred in a lab to produce all female plants. This is done by selectively breeding together two female parent plants, which have a high likelihood of producing female offspring. The advantage of growing feminized cannabis seeds is that they almost entirely eliminate the risk of producing male plants, meaning that all of the plants you grow will be female. This can be very useful for outdoor growers who don’t want male plants popping up in the garden and pollinating their female plants.

    Ultimately, the choice between feminized and regular cannabis seeds depends on your own personal preferences, as well as the goals of your cannabis garden. If you’re looking to produce some bred strains or create your own, then regular seeds are likely your best bet. However, if your goal is to get as many female plants as possible, then feminized cannabis seeds may be the way to go. Whichever route you choose, make sure you do plenty of research and make sure you have the right soil, nutrients, and growing environment for your chosen strain before you get started.
