Feminized Cannabis Seeds

Feminized cannabis seeds are designed to produce female cannabis plants. These plants will only produce potent quality buds thus feminized seeds are perfect for those who are looking into harvesting seedless buds.

Most North American weed cultivators are growing with feminized seeds—cannabis seeds that only produce female plants. By using modern feminization technologies to produce female seeds, modern breeders like Dagga Seeds can ensure female genetics with a nearly 100% success rate.

Male vs. Female Cannabis Plants

Weed plants that are pollinated with traditional cannabis breeding techniques can produce both male or female seeds. These are referred to as ‘regular weed seeds’ and, as in most instances, they will produce an even split between the two sexes. That means weed growers starting with regular seeds have about a 50/50 chance of yielding a female plant from each seed.

Why Grow From Feminized Cannabis Seeds?

There are a few advantages to starting your cannabis grow with feminized seeds. This takes away all the guesswork of how many seeds to sprout to get a full grow room. Feminized weed seeds enhance the growing process, saving time, space and money. Since most jurisdictions that allow home growing weed restrict the number of plants, so using feminized seeds can be critical for medical marijuana patients to keep their supply topped up.

How Are Cannabis Seeds Feminized?

There is more than one technique that can produce feminized seeds. One old-school method is to stress out a female weed plant by interrupting its light cycle during flowering. While that method does works to an extent, the most used method among cannabis seed breeders is to use colloidal silver or silver thiosulphate solution. This method makes it possible to produce all-female seeds without changing the genetics of the strain.

Both solutions are a blend of distilled water and fine silver particles, and they work relatively in the same way. The silver suspended in the solution stops the production of ethylene, a hormone involved in flowering. The result of spraying the nodes of the plant is a female plant that produces male pollen sacs. Since those pollen sacs are growing on a plant with only female genetics, female genetics are all that is passed on to its seeds. When those flowers pollinate any other female plant (one untreated by silver), the resulting seeds are 99% certain to be female.

Using a silver thiosulphate solution results in seeds that will produce female weed plants nearly 100% of the time, and Dagga Seeds breeders have found this solution to be the most effective way to maintain the stability of the strain genetics for future generations.

Growing weed seeds at home is legal in an increasing number of states and provinces throughout Canada and the United States. To make starting a home grow easy, growers can start with female seeds for many popular strains from weed seed breeders like Dagga Seeds.
