When entering the Cannabis cultivation universe for the first time — either for personal or commercial consumption — you come across a variety of jargon that could easily dissuade your motivation to begin your journey in this new and beautifully exciting horticulture. In this article, we demystify one of those terms: Feminized Cannabis seeds. Additionally, we list a few reliable sources to purchase these seeds.
If you are anything like me, then upon hearing the term feminized Cannabis Seeds, your mind is immediately pulled to think these seeds are marginalized and probably make 70% on the yield compared to their male counterparts. Alas, that’s not the case.
Until the 1990s, the cultivation of Cannabis from seed to flower was a game of chance. In that, there was a 50% chance that the seed would grow to become male. To cultivators, that’s a gender reveal party gone wrong. Because male Cannabis plants produce seed pods that pollinate the female plants and dramatically decrease their yields. Moreover, unlike their male counterparts, the female plants produce cannabinoid-rich buds among which are the famous THC & CBD.
So, if you’re looking to get started with cultivating Cannabis, Feminized Cannabis seeds are the way to go; thereby eliminating the game of chance with a 99.999% chance that the seed will grow into a female plant. Below is a list of the top 5 reliable places that ship to the US, Europe, and Canada (not list in any particular order).
