There is a lot of uncertainty about white cannabis seeds. We have therefore answered the most frequently asked questions below.
The white color in cannabis occurs in nature occasionally, as a consequence of a double recessive gene responsible for the absence of chlorophyll or because of a genetic mutation of the genes involved in pigmentation.
Are white weed seeds good?
A double recessive gene causes absolutely white plants, although this is extremely rare; and in the second case, the bud or a part of the plant is affected by the mutation. Another possible explanation is the non-conformity between nuclear and chloroplast genomes.
Apart from the white weed seeds we want to go a little deeper into white weed species.
White Widow flowers in 9-10 weeks when grown inside, and is ready for harvest in early October when cultivated outside. Try and leave harvest for as long as possible for better quality weed, with increased strength and a more complex flavor.
In other words, if your seeds are green or light green, you have a problem. Otherwise, no problem!
It’s true that immature seeds will have a low germination rate. So the first step is knowing how to spot the difference between an immature seed and a healthy white seed. Check out this picture for example:
Why Are Some Seeds White?
As you can see in this picture, there are a lot of greenish seeds. (By the way, we found this picture online, these are not our seeds!) These are the seeds that are immature. A lot of times, light green seeds are mistaken for white seeds, and vice versa.
Now it’s time for the million dollar question! Are white seeds the same quality, or are they subpar? The answer might surprise you! From all the tests we’ve done internally, as well as all the tests we’ve seen from our competitors, it turns out that white seeds have the same germination rate and are actually more likely to sprout faster than brown seeds! Because these seeds tend to have a slightly less thick outer shell, it allows the seeds to sprout faster.
