Technically, you can crush cannabis seeds into a powdered form and try smoking them. However, does that mean you should? The short answer is no.
Marijuana seeds have little to no THC and CBD content which are the chemical compounds in marijuana flowers and buds that are responsible for having a mind-altering effect on you and getting you buzzed. Additionally, cannabis seeds create sharp crackling and popping sounds when they are smoked, which contributes to an incredibly uncomfortable smoking session. Plus, smoking cannabis seeds and stems will be harsh on your lungs and irritate the body’s airways, even if you are a chronic smoker.
What to do with cannabis seeds?
You can do it so long as you do your research, are responsible, and put in the due effort.
Here are a few things that can be done:
The bottom line is that it is not a good idea to smoke your weed seeds.
If you’re feeling ambitious you can take the seeds out of your pot and try to grow from them. Here are a couple tips for determining whether or not to grow with the seeds you find:
The term sinsemilla is derived from the Spanish words “sin” (meaning “without”) and “semilla” (meaning “seed”) to mean as stated, without seed. This word has been associated with seedless cannabis flower since the 1970’s in North America but there is some evidence of it dating back further to countries like India! To clear up a few myths; sinsemilla is NOT a strain or genetics. It is a female cannabis plant that has not been exposed to male plants (aka not fertilized).
Saving the Seeds
I found 10+ seeds in my weed – These seeds will give you a 50/50 chance of female/male plants. Usually these seeds occur from male plant fertilization. If you have the time and knowledge, grow them! Make sure you look out for those nanners as you get into flowering. Nanners are male pollen sacks that look like little bananas!
This seedy weed could mean that the grower didn’t properly identify the male plants. Most growers will remove these plants immediately to ensure that their female plants are not pollinated.
Growing from home allows you to control many factors, so you can expect higher quality cannabis. If you are able to grow indoors, theres an even lower chance of your cannabis plants getting fertilized, as you would have to have the males in the tent/ grow box with them! When using a Grobo, you never have to worry about male plants being too close to your females.
