The overall consensus is that smoking marijuana seeds are not harmful to your health. If you want to know if you “can” smoke marijuana seeds, then the answer is yes, you can, but there is little to nothing to be gained from it.
When busting your bud up, take a moment to pick them out, and all should be well. That said, there’s no need to hit the panic button if the odd one sneaks past your initial scan and gets ingested.
Marijuana seeds contain none of the psychoactive properties of cannabis, so if getting high is your main objective, ‘option B’ may have to be deployed. Not only are marijuana seeds devoid of THC, but smoking them along with the rest of your cannabis material will create a less than ideal flavour and aroma, and may cause a bit of a scare, as seeds tend to pop and crackle suddenly when exposed to extreme heat.

If the male is not removed in a timely fashion your female plants could become pollinated and start growing seeds. These seeds are part of the natural process and can be used to start a new grow. Careful, 50% of them will be males! Did you also know that cannabis seeds are a superfood? You can survive by eating just seeds!
This doesn’t mean it is bad for your health but we advise against smoking seeds. Please remove them as you see them – you may find them crushed up in your grinder! The presence of seeds does mean that the total mass of smokable weed is compromised with decreased cannabinoid content and quite a few unwanted seeds. Think about it this way: If you purchase an ounce of cannabis and it comes filled with seeds, you are paying for the seeds which are less desirable than the cannabis flower that you were expecting.

The buds should be fat, dense, and hard to squeeze. When you’re able to look at the buds up close, you want to see if any seeds, stems, or leaves are easily identified. Beyond that you want to examine the color. The verdant nature of the bud is indicative of how healthy it is. Basically the richer the green color, the healthier the plant. This green is also a representation of how well treated the plant was before it reached you. If the curing and the drying process was conducted appropriately it will maintain its rich, green color. Cannabis of lower quality tends to be a dull green, or even brown.
Having some seeds in the mix doesn’t mean your weed is bad. However, if your buds have a lot of seeds in them it might not be as potent as it could be. The potency can be significantly reduced as the plant’s energy is working towards reproduction and producing seeds instead of just the flower, cannabinoids (CBD, THC), trichome and terpene goodness.
If you have had these thoughts, then you are not alone! Most marijuana consumers at some point in their weed consumption journey start to wonder if it is safe to smoke cannabis seeds.
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.
Smoking cannabis seeds
The bottom line is that it is not a good idea to smoke your weed seeds.
If you cannot be bothered to come up with unique and interesting ideas for what to do with your cannabis seeds, then consider selling them to others to make a quick buck.
The long answer is that there is no good reason for you to smoke cannabis seeds unless you are looking forward to getting a headache afterwards.
