Some people believe you can see the gender of the strain based on the appearance of the seeds. Well, we can tell you that ain’t possible. Both female and male seeds look exactly the same.

The quality of a seed can be partially assessed by looking at the appearance. However, you have to know what a healthy cannabis seed looks like and that can be difficult. Even for the experienced grower. In this blog we therefore answer various questions such as: what do weed seeds look like and how can you see if a cannabis seed is healthy and viable?

These are referred to as “bagseeds” and whether or not you can grow one will depend on where it came from.

They’re not a perfect match, but Okra seeds are probably a bit closer to SMALL cannabis seeds in terms of overall size, shape, and weight, though they are typically fairly dark in color, nearly black.
