We are often asked if female marijuana seeds increase the risk of hermaphrodite weed plants. Feminized seeds are produced by inducing a female parent to produce pollen. This means there will be hermaphroditism in the seed’s genetic history. Happily, it doesn’t mean female cannabis seeds are hermaphroditic by default. They only become susceptible to hermaphroditism when exposed to severe stress. Avoiding stress is vital when cultivating marijuana from feminized cannabis seeds.
Feminized seeds are specially bred to eliminate male chromosomes, so they produce only female plants rather than male and female marijuana plants. Cannabis growers cultivating cannabis plants for smokeable buds prefer feminized cannabis seeds because only female weed plants produce the cannabinoid-rich flowers that consumers enjoy.
Feminized weed seeds can be grown in either indoor or outdoor environments. You’re essentially applying the same principles as growing cannabis from regular seeds. The significant difference is that with feminized strains, there’s no need to identify the plant’s gender. Feminised marijuana seeds are 95 – 99% guaranteed to be female. Separating male plants is therefore no longer a problem.
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.
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%.
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.
The creation of feminized cannabis seeds meant that the inconvenience of male plants, particularly their size, was no longer a concern.
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.
