Why Buy Feminized Cannabis Seeds?
In legal regions, feminized cannabis seeds make cultivation a bit easier as you’re getting seeds that grow into female plants – ones with flowering buds. There’s no reason for speculation. A regular seed can just as easily be a male plant, which is used only for breeding but not for cultivating. So, if you’re a hobby grower feminized seeds are best for you!
How Do Feminized Cannabis Seeds Work?
Cannabis that grows in the wild is usually hermaphrodite plants. This means they contain the physical traits of male and female. This genetic profile comes as a result of needing to self-populate. Most commercialized plants have hermaphrodite genes bred out of them in a time-saving measure. Quality feminized seeds are incredibly resistant to developing this gene, especially when cultivated in the correct conditions.
Feminized seeds are created by a grower breeding two female plants together, ensuring their offspring will be female. This is achieved by spraying the juvenile flowers with gibberellic acid or colloidal silver to alter their development.
The pollen sacs are harvested, and the ‘female’ pollen used to harvest buds of another female plant. This results in the seeds developing with just female genes. As male plants can fertilize multiple females, the popularity of feminized seeds continues to significantly aid the future preservation of cannabis strains for generations to come.
Feminized seeds are great for a beginner grower as, if raised properly, they will produce buds no matter what. There’s no guesswork involved.
Reasons to Grow from Feminized Seeds
There are actually many advantages to be had for growers who start their harvest with feminized seeds. Think about it: since you’re removing all the guesswork associated with germinating regular seeds, you are actually saving up quite a bit of time, space and particularly, energy. As a matter of fact, feminized seeds can significantly streamline the growing process.
This improvement in efficiency is not just important to medical cannabis users but also cannabis hobbyists. Majority of cannabis regulations have placed a limit on plant counts – therefore, growers who are cultivating a small harvest for personal use need to absolutely ensure that they’re getting the most ‘bang for the buck’ as far as the grow goes.
Male plants actually do a lot more than simply take up space in your garden. They demand a lot of time and resources for one. And, in gardens where both male and female plants are present, growers are tasked with the cumbersome process of cultivating both plants until their sexes are apparent.
Even though some strains can show early signs of their gender before flowering actually begins, majority of cannabis plants will not express their gender until they start to mature, which comes after the vegetative stage, it might be noted.
The change occurs when the amount of light and dark the plant must receive, changes to a 12-hour light/12-hour dark cycle. In outdoor gardens, this change happens naturally as the seasons change. In a controlled indoor garden, this change must be exerted through timed grow lights.
Once the plants are mature enough, growers must go through the painstaking task of determining their sex and monitoring each and every single plant to ensure that Males are removed before they have a chance to pollinate the females (which can prove disastrous).
By using feminized seeds only, growers no longer have to spend weeks nurturing their plants where there is only a 50% chance of those plants expressing themselves as females. In addition, they can also maximize the space and plant count within their grow space.

The Best Feminised Cannabis Seeds for Beginners
Gelat.OG is the culmination of bringing together two much-in-demand West Coast strains, viz. Gelato and OG Kush. If you are looking for a strain with a deliciously mouth-watering taste, heavy yields, pretty fast flowering and a happy yet potent and relaxing effect – and let’s face it, who isn’t? – then you may well have found your Holy Grail in Gelat.OG.
Gelat.OG grows well both indoors and outdoors. Cultivated indoors, it will grow to a height of between 90 – 120 cm. tall. Producing 500 – 600 gr/m2 in just 55 – 60 days of flowering. Outdoors it is recommended to plant out in at least 50-litre pots or, preferably, directly in the ground. Where it will grow to a height of 220 cm. Harvest time will be in the last days of September, giving it a wide range of cultivability even in higher latitudes where the inclement weather of autumn is yet to make an appearance, with yields of 400 – 600 gr/plant.
White Widow is one of the best-known and still one of the most potent cannabis strains in the world. Originally created in the early 1990s, its release to the coffee shops of Amsterdam was soon met with universal rave reviews. Canna-tourists flocked in their thousands to find out whether all the advance publicity for this white strain was true. It was and remains so today. Bred by crossing a Brazilian sativa strain with a highly resinous South Indian indica, it is named after the plant’s frosty appearance. This makes it white with resin.
Badazz Cookies OG
Badazz Cookies OG is a three-way hybrid comprised of BadAzz, OG Kush and Cookies Kush. Genetically, it is 70% indica and produces high levels of resin and terpenes, making it a great strain from which to make cannabis extracts and concentrates. This is a superb-tasting strain that will have smokers coming back for more and more.
Outdoors these plants can reach a height of up to 300 cm. when planted directly in the ground which gives the roots plenty of room to develop. The yield will be between 600 – 800 gr/plant with harvest in the first half of October in northern latitudes in this environment. Outdoor cultivation should only be attempted in regions where the weather will not cause high humidity and damp levels; otherwise, there is a strong likelihood of the crop being ruined.
