Aside from producing cannabis through seeds, or sexual reproduction, you can also reproduce the plant through cloning, or asexual reproduction. A clone is a cutting that is genetically identical to the plant it was taken from—that plant is known as the “mother.”
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.
What are feminized cannabis seeds?
Remember, once a seed germinates, the real work begins. Sexing, selecting, vegetative growth, flowering, and the eventual harvest all lie ahead.
These are referred to as “bagseeds” and whether or not you can grow one will depend on where it came from.
Seeds found in finished cannabis buds can develop for a number of reasons. For example, a male plant may have accidentally pollinated a flowering female during the growing process. But more commonly, they’re a sign of stress and can be attributed to high temperatures during the final stages of flowering or an exaggerated spike in climate or environment.
I’ve seen some growers get impressive results with bagseed, but overall results seem to be hit or miss. Plants can grow in odd ways and often either the yields or quality isn’t as expected. The problem is that seeds often don’t “breed true” to the buds that they came from. That is why many growers either stick to clones (which are exactly the same as the “mother” plant) or purchase seeds of a stabilized strain from a trustworthy breeder, where each of the plants will grow the way you expect, and buds more consistently have the smell, yield and potency they’re supposed to.
There’s a seed in my bud!
If it’s very seedy the buds may not feel as potent, though a few seeds here and there won’t make much difference in potency. The main problem with seedy weed is that you are getting less smokeable bud for the amount of total mass there. If it is seedless, you will get a lot more bang for your buck. Seedless bud (sinsemilla) is considered to be the highest quality and most potent type of weed.
Are seeds good to grow?
What does it mean to find seeds in your marijuana buds? Is it something to be worried about?
Seeds are the result of pollination. That means the seedy cannabis buds (which come from a female plant) may have come into contact with pollen from a male plant. Therefore, it’s possible the grower didn’t identify and remove all the male plants before the released pollen. It’s also possible that the plant self-pollinated (sometimes called herming) which is often the result of plant stress during the budding phase but can also be caused by genetics.
It should be dark and relatively hard. Very pale or white seeds, that can be easily crushed between the fingers, usually won’t sprout. However, I have been surprised to find some very flimsy seeds sprout and produce amazing plants (we aren’t breeding them for hard seeds after all) so when in doubt, I highly recommend doing the true test to see if the seed is viable – try to germinate the seed and see if it sprouts!
Depending on the space you have available you can choose between species that flourish best outdoors or in an enclosed space. Outdoor strands usually grow a lot bigger, thrive best in a natural habitat and are very robust. Indoor seeds are specifically convenient if one does not have a lot of space for the cultivation. Both types germinate particularly well indoors, safe from temperature drops or other environment changes. If you are looking to buy Marijuana for indoor growth, we recommend Big Bud, Amnesia, or White Widow. They are the bestsellers in our online shop. Indoor species like a steady temperature and humidity level and their growth and blooming can easily be influenced by regulating the lighting times.
We offer, among others, the following Cannabis seeds:
Marijuana seeds for indoor and outdoor cultivation
High Supplies Premium Cannabis Seeds are cultivated in the Netherlands. They are hybrids from the breeds Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis. Our Cannabis seed shop is divided into different categories. You can directly search for a breed suited for either indoor or outdoor cultivation or opt for feminized seeds, which, being true to their name, have been modified to grow only female plants. Of course we also offer traditional seeds that develop both male and female plants.
Regular Marijuana seeds means a mixture of male and female seeds. These are avaible with varying proportions. Male plants have to be removed or planted separately in order to avoid pollination. However, if you are planning to breed new seeds, the male plants are essential.
Besides to buying seeds, you can also purchase a complete set of accessories allowing for immediate dissemination.
The seeds were selected according to their first-class germinal performance with particularly high yields, high-level resistance, and adaptability.
