This is something I’ve wondered about for a long time. I’m sure anyone reading this has encountered this at some point. Tiny tiny tiny undeveloped seeds in your bud, micro seeds. At least that’s what I call them, although I’d rather them not actually be seeds.
1. if everthing is bad and the plant has a lot of stress. heat,water. the female can turn into male.
2. some breeders say dont do clones from feminized seeds cause microseeds can happen.
Hoping a grower will see this that can shed some light on this. It’s really only a concern when you notice them post grind.
I’ve read where female plants can turn hermaphrodite and produce seeds w out pollination. And where they get pollinated a lil bit late and the grower harvests to save the crop. But I’ve never known for sure.
Sometimes, you grind up your herb, dump it out, and you’ve the smallest little pre seed like things among the flower. Question is are they seeds, or just basically the plants “ovaries”? I’ve heard both. Some strains have these more than others. If you break open the calyx of almost any bud, you will find a small little what would grow to be a seed if pollinated. Sometimes you can see them more if they’re dark and the flower light colored. Usually don’t notice them. And some bud has bigger ones than others.

Within a week or so you should see a seedling begin to grow from the soil.
Germinating cannabis seeds doesn’t always go as planned. Some seeds will be duds. Others will be slow and take longer to sprout. But some will pop quickly and grow rapidly.
Because only female cannabis plants produce buds and you want them to focus all their energy on producing buds and not seeds, it’s important to identify and get rid of male weed plants so they don’t pollinate females. If females are pollinated, it will give you buds filled with seeds, making your weed harsh and unpleasant.
Autoflowers can be started in early spring and will flower during the longest days of summer, taking advantage of high quality light to get bigger yields. Or, if you get a late start in the growing season, you can start autoflowers in May or June and harvest in the fall.
If you don’t like the flavor, effects, or even the look of the bud, then it’s probably not worth growing.
If you’re ready for a more serious approach, make sure you have the space for a proper garden and pop the seeds to see what fruit they bear.
