regular weed without seeds

Growing indoors gives cultivators much more control over the grow space. You’ll be able to control light schedules at the click of a button and monitor watering to the nearest drop. Temperature and humidity can be modified using fans, heaters, and humidifiers.

Allow the pollen to work its magic for three hours. The fertilised flowers will now begin the process of forming seeds. Gently spray down the fertilised buds with water to remove excess pollen.

Germination

Compost tea isn’t the only plant-nourishing formula you can make at home. Try making your own super soil that delivers everything your plants need on command.

It’s possible to tell them apart before plants are mature enough to reproduce. Plants will start to reveal their sex at the tail-end of the vegetative phase.

Cannabis is a dioecious species, meaning it produces separate male and female plants. Because female cannabis plants grow the best bud, this led to the creation and popularisation of feminized seeds—strains engineered to produce females 99.99% of the time.

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

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.

What causes seeds?

I’ve seen some growers get impressive results with bagseed, but overall results seem to be hit or miss. Plants can grow in odd ways and often either the yields or quality isn’t as expected. The problem is that seeds often don’t “breed true” to the buds that they came from. That is why many growers either stick to clones (which are exactly the same as the “mother” plant) or purchase seeds of a stabilized strain from a trustworthy breeder, where each of the plants will grow the way you expect, and buds more consistently have the smell, yield and potency they’re supposed to.

If it’s very seedy the buds may not feel as potent, though a few seeds here and there won’t make much difference in potency. The main problem with seedy weed is that you are getting less smokeable bud for the amount of total mass there. If it is seedless, you will get a lot more bang for your buck. Seedless bud (sinsemilla) is considered to be the highest quality and most potent type of weed.

There’s a seed in my bud!
