This is our range of feminised seeds. These seeds will always grow a female plant, the type of plant which develops flowers (BUDS!). For male plants, you'll have to have a look at our range of regular seeds. - Regular seeds is the term for seeds which are straight from the (non-feminised) plant, thrown into a bag, so to speak. This will be a natural mix of male and female seeds.
There are three methods of growing your own crop of cannabis. Feminine seeds, Male seeds and from cloned plants which are taken from an extract of an existing plant. Each is capable of producing a crop of cannabis for consumption, cloned plants taken from other plants will have their limitations with regards to how good their end product is. The same goes for Male seeds, which whilst more ‘natural’ are limited by nature of their genetics how potent they are. Male plants contain less THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), and do not have the flowers (read: Bud) that signify their potency, they do however have the seeds which pollinate the female plants. The ‘bud’ (sinsemilla) is important as this cannabinoid-rich, these are the potent flowers that we consume when we smoke cannabis.
Feminised Seeds from Amsterdam
Feminised seeds when planted display particular traits that feed into getting the best product, given the right conditions. When you observe a cannabis bud, you will see a knotting of varying parts: the orange hairs (fiery in colour), sugary crystals and chunky knobs wrapped in leaves. If you look at a good batch, you will see all of these elements present.
That bud that you have in your jar or in a little clear grip seal bag, that should be from feminised plants. If it’s not and contains seeds (and sticks), you have what could be a mix of the two sexes or has even come from a hermaphroditic plant.
Feminised plants definitely do not have any seeds, if they do then they are probably a hermaphroditic plants. Hermaphroditic plants are rare plants that exhibit both male and female characteristics, containing both male and female sex organs that allow the plant to pollinate itself during flowering. This is often considered a nuisance to cannabis growers as it spoils the seedless bud growing plants and passes on this hermaphrodite chromosome genetically.
If you’re growing your own crop, you can ensure the sex of your plant by growing clones from the clippings of a female plant (feminised parent strain) or by buying cannabis seeds from a supplier such as the Amsterdam Seed Center. The Amsterdam Seed Center also gives you the opportunity to speak with experts on how to cultivate your crop in the most effective way, giving you advice on the best ‘growing conditions’, ‘fertilisation’, ‘plant feed’, ‘soil management’ and ‘lighting or heat conditions’.
