WHAT ARE FEMINIZED CANNABIS SEEDS?

Feminized cannabis seeds are specifically developed to produce predominantly female cannabis plants. In normal circumstances, cannabis plants have two genders: male and female. Male plants produce pollen, while female plants develop flowers that contain resinous buds.

Feminized seeds are produced by manipulating the genetics of the cannabis plant to produce seeds that will almost exclusively result in female plants. This is usually achieved by subjecting female plants to a stressful environment or treating them with specific chemicals or hormones, such as colloidal silver or gibberellic acid. These treatments induce a response in the plant, causing it to develop male flowers that produce pollen. The pollen is then used to pollinate other female plants.

By manipulating the genetics of the cannabis plant and producing predominantly female plants, growers can reduce the likelihood of male plants and the associated risks. Female plants are valuable in cannabis cultivation as they produce the resinous buds that are rich in cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, which are sought after for their psychoactive and medicinal properties.

Feminized cannabis seeds are popular among both hobby growers and commercial cultivators because they offer an efficient and reliable way to obtain female cannabis plants without the need to worry about removing male plants.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PHOTOPERIOD & FEMINIZED SEEDS

The main difference between photoperiod and feminized cannabis seeds lies in the genetics and characteristics of the plants that grow from these seeds. Here are the key differences:

  • Gender: Photoperiod seeds have the potential to produce both male and female plants, while feminized seeds have been developed to predominantly produce female plants. This means that growers using feminized seeds have a higher likelihood of obtaining female plants capable of producing resinous buds.
  • Light Cycle: Photoperiod plants are sensitive to the length of daylight hours. They begin to flower when the dark period is long enough, usually around 12 hours or less of light per day. Feminized plants, on the other hand, do not require a specific light cycle to enter the flowering phase. They will start to flower automatically after a certain period of growth, regardless of the light schedule.
  • Flexibility: Photoperiod plants offer growers more flexibility and control over the plant’s growth cycle. By adjusting the light schedule, growers can keep photoperiod plants in the vegetative phase for as long as desired before switching to the flowering phase. Feminized plants have a predetermined growth and flowering cycle and have less flexibility in this regard.
