Find answers to the most commonly asked questions about cannabis seeds. Top question: What are the differences between feminized, regular, and autoflowering seeds?
Regular seeds have a roughly 50/50 chance of producing male or female plants. Feminized seeds produce only female plants (roughly 99%). Both regular and feminized seeds are photoperiod dependent: they start flowering based on hours of daylight. Autoflowering seeds produce plants that flower automatically at 2-4 weeks old. All autoflowering seeds are feminized and will therefore only produce female plants.
• Growers on a budget
• Growers actively breeding new strains
• Growers with experience who don’t mind sexing cannabis (separating male plants from female plants)
• Experimental growers
• Growers using the cloning technique for genetic preservation
The cannabis strain that’s right for you depends on several factors:
• The size of your grow space
• Whether you grow indoors or outdoors
• The climate of the location if growing outdoors
• The effects you want from the end product
• The flavours and the aroma that the buds produce
Cannabis seeds can last up to 36 months without the germination rate being affected if kept in a cool, dark, dry environment. If conditions remain dark, protected, and refrigerated, seeds can last for up to 10 years but the rate of germination will drop as they get older.
