There is a 50% chance the seed produces a male plant. It can be hard to differentiate male plants from female plants until they are at least 3-4 week old seedlings. You could end up with male plants in a greenhouse full of females. Male plants are usually undesirable unless you are trying to breed new strains or collect pollen for future use (“pollen banking”).
Advantages of regular seeds
Feminized seeds are more expensive than regular seeds. They would not be suitable for anyone hoping to collect pollen or breed new strains.
Advantages of autoflowering seeds
The plants produced by autoflowering seeds are often characterized by flowers with very low THC content. These seeds produce small plants, so they may not be a good option if you are trying to produce large quantities of buds.
The main drawback to growing from seed is there is no guarantee as to what you’ll end up with—if you buy a regular pack of cannabis seeds, it will be a mix of males and females. You’ll need to sex them out (more below) to identify the males and get rid of them, because you don’t want your females producing seeds.
Once cannabis seeds are mature, the female plant begins to die, and seeds are either dropped to the ground where they grow into new cannabis plants next spring, or the seeds are harvested for processing into seed oil or food products, or stored so they can be sown in the ground later and become the next generation of plants.
Pros and cons of using cannabis clones
Even if your seed sprouts fast and grows vigorously, it still has roughly a 50/50 chance of being female and producing buds, instead of turning out to be a male.
Sexing marijuana plants can be a time-consuming process, and if you don’t catch males, there is a risk that even one males can pollinate your entire crop, causing all of your female weed plants to produce seeds.
Cannabis is grown from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Seeds carry genetic information from two parent plants and can express many different combinations of traits: some from the mother, some from the father, and some traits from both.
It is mostly used as medical marijuana because it has a lot of healing properties. Users say that you will feel the textbook health benefits and when you use it, you will feel relaxed, euphoric, and maybe a little bit sleepy.
It takes about two and a half months for the plant to be ready for harvest and from one of it you can get between 300 and 500 grams of marijuana.
It is three-quarters Indica and one-quarter Sativa and from one herb you will get as much as 600 grams of marijuana. It takes about three months for the plant to grow and there are two versions of this strain.
It is mostly Sativa, so when you use it you will feel energized, happy, and full of energy. It takes a little bit more than two months for the type to be fully grown and the THC level is less than 20%.
The THC levels of this herb are about 20%, so even though the name suggests otherwise, it is not the strongest plant you can find on the market. However, these seeds are probably the easiest ones to grow this year, and that is why it is one of the most common plants you can find out there.
It is said that this strain has one of the most specific flavors and that it is something everyone should try at least once in their lives. It has a spicy taste with some smoky notes that make the whole experience even better.
You don’t have to bother about finding the perfect space as well, because this strain can grow both inside and out. Once you plant it, you will get about 500 grams from one fully grown herb.
