Both substances are a blend of water and fine silver particles, and they work in largely the same fashion. The silver solution impedes the production of ethylene, a hormone involved in flowering. The result is a female plant, but one that produces male flowers with pollen sacs. Since those pollen sacs develop on a plant with only female genetics, female genetics are all they carry. When those flowers pollinate another female plant (one untreated by silver solutions), the resulting seeds are nearly certain to be female.
That efficiency is key for medical cannabis patients and hobby growers. Since most cannabis regulations limit plant counts, growers cultivating a small crop of cannabis for personal use want to ensure they’re getting the most out of their grow.
If you have more questions about strains or seeds, keep digging through Leafly’s resources.

How Are Cannabis Seeds Feminized?
Traditionally, the solution to this has been an inelegant one, with many cultivators planting at least twice as many seeds as they hope to harvest with the assumption that about half of them will be useless. However big a harvest you’re looking for, using regular seeds means you’ll have to plant twice that many seeds.

“In our search to find new genetics, Kannabia paired us with their feminized Russian Doll seeds,” say growers at Canada’s BlueSky Organics. “Every seed germinated, and now that we are in the late vegetative stage, these plants have an extremely hardy trunk preparing themselves for some massive buds.”
These highly sought after female marijuana (Cannabis, weed) seeds give growers full control over their operations helping eradicate any potential variations in phenotype and ensure only the finest buds are produced. Our range of feminized marijuana (Cannabis, weed) seeds is extensive and developed by our breeders to offer a variety of seeds for all tastes. They consist of Indica, Sativa and hybrid photoperiod and autoflowering genetics which contain Cannabis Cup Winners, Blue, Purple and Cheese strains amongst an array of other weed seed varieties.
Female producing feminized strains, developed specifically for indoor setups.
High quality feminized Indica strains, known for their powerful sedative stone.
The hardier of the cannabis strains, outdoor strains grow tall and produce big yields.
Feminized marijuana (Cannabis, Weed) seeds are specifically bred to produce 99% female plants. It is these female plants that produce flowers which over the course of the flowering stage develop into the glistening, fragrant buds that are dried, smoked and used to medicate. They are the pot of green gold at the end of the growing cycle rainbow.
The connoisseurs choice, offering soaring, cerebral highs and uplifting stones.
In recent years the evolution of weed seed production has allowed MSNL breeders to develop some of the finest feminized seed genetics available. By isolating and removing the male hormone our female cannabis seeds produce 99.9% female plants, allowing growers to increase the speed of production and range of strains they can produce at a given time. Although not always the case, it is generally the male plant that growers try to avoid as it the males which can cross pollinate, fertilizing the female plants in your setup. This leads to a lower quality final product that often leaves buds riddled with seeds.
The average time from seed to harvest is around 3.5 months, but this varies according to the flowering time of your strain, and when you choose to make the switch from veg to bloom.
The subspecies does, however, influence characteristics such as leaf shape, plant size, and total flowering time:
Growers and cannabis users of all stripes love feminized cannabis seeds for several reasons:
