can dank weed have seeds

Seeds are the result of pollination. That means the seedy cannabis buds (which come from a female plant) may have come into contact with pollen from a male plant. Therefore, it’s possible the grower didn’t identify and remove all the male plants before the released pollen. It’s also possible that the plant self-pollinated (sometimes called herming) which is often the result of plant stress during the budding phase but can also be caused by genetics.

Finding Seeds in Good Weed… What?

What does it mean to find seeds in your marijuana buds? Is it something to be worried about?

Hopefully, you’re reading this before you’ve blazed on some bad-quality cannabis. We hope you’re not standing in front of your computer with an empty bowl, wondering why the weed didn’t hit. Whether you’re still in time to use this knowledge or not, your low-quality cannabis joints and bowls are a thing of the past. We’re here to teach you how to become an absolute pro when visually assessing your bud.

Good genetics is a key factor in obtaining quality bud, but growing the flower is only half the job. The rest of the effort must come from the grower after the harvest. The same happens with trimming. When you see that the buds are too leafy, they weren’t cared for properly. Leaves don’t get you high. So apart from paying more than what you’re actually going to smoke, it shows carelessness. Don’t buy your weed from someone who doesn’t care about it.

Average weed. Mid or mids is one of few terms for weed that’s not quite top of the line but it’s not awful either. It’s average, the C-student of bud. Beaster is another slang term in this quality category.

As the slang researcher Jonathan Green has been quoted saying, there are a variety of reasons for slang—drug-related or otherwise. Slang terms for weed typically fall into five main categories: products of criminalization, non-English language, weed culture, quality, and quantity.

High-quality weed. Some terms for high-quality weed include top-shelf, loud, chronic, kind, headies, fire, or piff. Dank is also a popular term for top-notch cannabis that has a rich smell of damp earth.
