Cannabis seeds grow into male or female plants. The female plants produce smokable buds while male plants do not. For this reason most growers want female plants only.
Feminized seeds make growing cannabis even easier, as there’s no need to remove male plants. Feminized seeds grow in the same conditions as regular seeds.
Feminized seeds are bred to contain no male chromosomes, which ensures that every plant grown from a feminized seed will flower as a female and be able to produce the crop of resinous buds sought by most growers. For gardeners who require a quick and easy cultivation process, feminized seeds are the ideal choice.
Regular cannabis seeds produce plants which are male or female. Though males must be weeded out, females are stable, robust and ideal for cloning.
When growing cannabis from seed, the natural ratio of females to males is around two-to-one (66% female). When planning a grow, it is best to assume that half of the seeds started will turn out female and germinate extra seeds to account for the males that will be discarded early in flowering.
