Some of the best feminized seeds strains available today include;
While we would love to support natural breeding techniques, they do not make economic sense. Cannabis cultivators looking to maximize yield would find natural pollination or traditional breeding techniques, wasteful and not beneficial in a commercial sense.
Indoor cultivation allows the grower to control every aspect of the process; environment, light source, nutrients, ventilation, temperature, and irrigation. When you grow indoors, you can closely monitor your plants and farm operations to ensure that you get a high-quality and high-inducing harvest.
What are the Best Feminized Seeds?
When you use natural breeding techniques, cannabis seeds would produce both male and female plants, and what this means is that most often, about 50% of the yield would be male plants which are of no good. Normal cultivation methods oftentimes produce plants that end up being useless and have to be cut out or those in the case of a large percent of male species, cause more havoc by pollinating the flower-bearing female plants, which in turn can lead to the loss of the entire yield.
Our feminized cannabis seeds boast one of the highest germination rates in the industry, they come from only the best genetics, cross-bred to grow into resistant plants with high THC and Yield.
Natural breeding techniques are great, but if you desire to control the yield quality and specific characteristics of your strain, you should consider switching to feminized seeds. The greatest benefit of buying feminized seeds, as we have continued to reiterate, is that they will only produce female plants. There are no male species; as such there are no concerns of pollinated crops and no more wasted time.
As the market for cannabis evolves, so does the science that supports the industry. Today, feminized cannabis seeds are taking center stage in the conversation between growers and seed banks.

Because male plants can fertilise many females, the popularity of feminized seeds continues to significantly aid the future preservation of cannabis strains for generations to come.
Wild cannabis plants are typically hermaphrodites, meaning they carry the physical traits of both sexes. This is done as an emergency response to the lack of either sex in a certain crop and also allows for self-pollination. This dioecious trait has been bred-out of most contemporary, commercialized plants, in order to manipulate the cultivation process and save time by removing the need to sex plants. Good quality feminized strains on the commercial market are all but resistant to becoming hermaphrodites, particularly if grown in proper conditions.
Today. Feminized seeds are bred in a way that enables them to develop and flower as female plants only. Their breeding process eliminates virtually all male chromosomes; the probability of female plants growing is 99.9%.
The creation and evolution of Feminized cannabis seeds have been one of the defining moments in the expansion of the cannabis market over the last few decades.
The creation of feminized cannabis seeds meant that the inconvenience of male plants, particularly their size, was no longer a concern.
Before feminized seeds were introduced to the market, regular seeds were the norm. These were typically made up of 50% male and 50% female seeds. This was often a source of frustration for growers who were forced to double the number of seedlings in order to ensure a satisfactory number of female plants for future cultivation.
For some growers who don’t mind large plant numbers, it’s possible to grow feminised seeds with just 1-2 weeks of vegetative growth (or even none at all!). The result will be a fast ‘Sea Of Green’ harvest of medium size plants which may often have the bulk of their buds on the main bloom.

Growing feminised seeds outdoors is even easier than growing indoors. In the northern hemisphere, feminised seeds are often harvested around October. Often the grower will germinate the feminised seeds indoors. (see the Dutch Passion guide on best ways to germinate cannabis seeds). This gives the seeds the best possible start, and protects the seedlings from the worst of the early season weather while they are at their most vulnerable. After a couple of weeks of indoor cultivation, the seedlings can then be planted outdoors when the weather is warm and the last frost has gone.
