Regular Cannabis Seeds!
Regular cannabis seeds (Regs) is the term applied to non-feminized seeds that produce either male or female cannabis plants, in a natural ratio. That being said, Regs are not really suitable for a direct seed-to-harvest crop, because there won’t be only female plants and, as said before, only female plants will produce flowers (buds). Regular Seeds are mostly used to breed new cannabis cultivars (strains) or for the selection of mother-plants for cloning purposes. For a homogeneous harvest with all your desired phenotype requirements, regular cannabis seeds are recommended for the selection process of a female motherplant. If you want to bypass the selection process and the identification of males and females in the pre-flowering phase, and just grow directly from seed to harvest, you should consider feminized cannabis seeds or autoflowerering cannabis seeds.
When regular seeds are grown they produce both male and female cannabis plants, by removing the male plants early in the flowering-phase you can assure that fertilization does not occur. If you leave the male plants, fertilization will certainly occur because pollen (produced by the males) will end up on the female flowers, this is called open-pollination and the result is a seed crop. Regular seeds are an excellent choice for first-time or novice botanists, they just require a few more steps in the cultivation-process.
Regular seeds as a singular strain can also be ‘fused’ with other strains to create new strains. Combining two strong strains produced from regular seeds can lead to new hybrid strains with more desirable characteristics (like: bigger yields, complex terpene profiles, faster trichome development etc.) whilst maintaining the potency from the original strains, making this a popular choice for ‘experienced growers’ and cannabis breeders.
