We hear this question all the time from clients and beginner growers, and the answer is a resounding no. There is simply no way to tell the sex of a cannabis seed just by looking at it.
Immature cannabis seeds, on the other hand, tend to be green and have a soft outer shell that breaks when any kind of pressure is applied to it.
Growing Seeds From A Bag (Bagseed)
The one true method to test the genetic potential of a seed is to simply put it in the soil. It won’t take too long to see the results. This option is best for the hobby home grower who has time and space to spare for a risky project. Growers cultivating cannabis for commercial use likely don’t have the excess time to invest.
If you are still unsure about the quality of your seeds after analysing their appearance and toughness, it’s time to put your lab coat and goggles on. Well, not quite. This test is extremely easy and only has two possible outcomes. Fill up a drinking glass or glass jar with water (preferably spring or distilled) and place your seeds on the surface.
The color and feel of a seed, on the other hand, can tell you a little more about its maturity and, potential to germinate or grow into a healthy seedling.
White Widow is widely regarded as the queen of the ‘White’ family. She has often been used to form other ‘white strains’ or share genetic material with other ‘white’ varieties. Other denominators are that white strains are covered in trichomes, have a high THC level resulting in a powerful high. Popular white strains include Snow White, White Widow and Amnesia Haze x White Widow.
There is a lot of confusion and misinformation online about white weed seeds – from tales of New York White, an albino cannabis purportedly growing in New York sewers to people thinking that white/silvery seeds are a sign of immaturity. The truth is that white weed seeds do exist and are strains derived from White Widow, which was developed from seeds with dominant white pigmentation.
White strains are generally famous for offering smokers a consistently high-quality weed, inducing powerful feelings of relaxation and calm.
Are white weed seeds female?
White weed seeds do not always occur because of a genetic trait, such as albinism. Instead, it can occur as a side effect of cross-breeding strains. Despite their color, white weeds seeds sold by seed banks are entirely healthy and develop in a normal way, offering bountiful harvests if grown in the right conditions. They are not true albino plants, and it is unlikely that albino plants would survive long enough to produce cannabis. Watch out if a strain of weed starts to turn white as this can be a sign of powdery mildew.
Many growers have heard the myth that white weed seeds are not as viable as black or brown seeds and are less likely to germinate. This is entirely untrue. At Weedseedsexpress, we have undertaken numerous germination tests and are completely confident in their quality. In fact, our test revealed that white seeds are more likely to germinate sooner than black seeds which has been confirmed by numerous of other seed banks
There is a lot of uncertainty about white cannabis seeds. We have therefore answered the most frequently asked questions below.
Apart from the white weed seeds we want to go a little deeper into white weed species.
