When it comes to marijuana plants, males and females are not equal. With the goal of your growing operation being the production of THC- and cannabinoid-rich buds, males can provide very little help in cultivating the weeds. In fact, they can actually detract from the health of your female, THC-producing plants.
The purpose of the male plant is to produce the pollen that generates seed production in females. However the production of THC in females is greatly reduced once they are pollenated. The plant’s potency is not as strong as it must expel more energy to produce seeds. With that, growers typically segregate males from females and only introduce the two to produce more seeds.
To maximize the seeds produced by each female, scientists now genetically alter female clones to produce as much as 99.9% female seeds. These are called feminized seeds, while those not altered are referred to as regular seeds. Feminized seeds are beneficial to growers because they take the guesswork out of the operation. With regular seeds, you have to identify and remove all male plants from the bunch. For both outdoor and indoor production, this could involve an intensive, laborious, and time-consuming process.
To reach the highest-quality output of potent buds from female plants, choose feminized seeds. Search from our selection of over 30 different types of feminized seeds to find the right fit for your needs.
