One answer “What is feminized seed breeding?

  1. Creating feminized seeds is a process of breeding that is used to create cannabis plants that are guaranteed to be female, meaning they will not produce male flowers or pollens that can lower the quality of the flowers, or fruits, they would produce otherwise. This process is beneficial because it increase the chances of higher yields, better potency, and less stress.

    The goal of creating feminized seeds is to produce female cannabis plants, or plants that will bear flowers that can be used medicinally or recreationally. To do this, the female plant needs to produce pollen, as this is what is typically used for reproduction, yet female cannabis plants typically do not produce pollen.

    To make female cannabis plants to produce pollen, a process known as ‘gibberellic acid’ is used and is considered a very reliable way of producing feminized seeds. Gibberellic acid is a hormone that can be found in plants, and when applied to female cannabis plants it will cause them to produce male flowers with pollen – this pollen can then be used to fertilize another female plant, producing feminized seeds.

    When this pollen is used to fertilize a female cannabis plant, the resulting seeds will be exclusively female, meaning they won’t produce male flowers that could pollinate other female plants and lower your yields.

    Using feminized seeds has a few major advantages. Firstly, it eliminates the need to identify and remove male plants – which would otherwise lower the yields of the final product due to pollination. Secondly, feminized plants are known to be higher in THC levels than regular cannabis plants, with some estimates measuring as much as 20% higher levels of THC. This can be very beneficial if growing cannabis is your goal. Thirdly, by eliminating the need to ensure a ratio of male and female plants, stress levels are reduced as well. Growing cannabis can be a challenging process, and feminized seeds make it much easier.

    These advantages, combined with the fact that feminized seeds can be found for many different strains of cannabis, make them a popular choice for those looking to grow their own marijuana. It is also possible to create feminized seeds for other plants as well, though it is much less common and the process is more difficult.

    Thus feminized seeds are an excellent choice for anyone looking to grow high-quality cannabis with a higher yield potential and higher THC levels. The process of creating feminized seeds, while considered reliable, is a relatively new one and further research is needed to gain a better understanding of the process and its implications.
