What are feminized cannabis seeds?
Feminized marijuana seeds are those that have been genetically manipulated to produce exclusively female plants with large buds. These are the ones that most breeders look for.
Feminized cannabis seeds guarantee the bloom of a female plant since they do not contain male chromosomes.
Marijuana is a dioecious plant as it produces male and female specimens. A male plant can produce pistil flowers (female) and a female plant can produce stamen flowers (male). These cases are not rare for different reasons. Even we can get to find the two types of flowers in the same plant. These would be intersex specimens or commonly called hermaphrodites. This is a characteristic that the plant has for its own survival, to guarantee its reproduction even if there is no plant of the opposite sex nearby.
This circumstance is a great advantage for breeding feminized seeds. Initially, female plants were forced, using different methods generally based on stress, to create male flowers. The problem was that the use of this pollen for the creation of feminized seeds transmitted by genetic inheritance a high percentage of hermaphroditism to their offspring.
The previous problem has now been solved using methods based on the inhibition of ethylene. It is a plant hormone that determines the flowers which the plant must develop. Therefore, when using this type of treatments in female plants, they induce it to produce male flowers with pollen without male chromosomes. When this pollen is used to fertilize female plants, the result is an absolutely female offspring.
Advantages of feminized seeds.
The creation of feminized marijuana seeds meant a real transformation of the cannabis market because of the great advantages they entail.
The cultivation of feminized cannabis seeds guarantees that the plants will flower as females. This makes breeder's life much easier as they do not have to eliminate the males from their cultivation anymore.
In the past, it was necessary to plant about twice more of the seeds that we wanted to cultivate as we knew that we had to do a discrimination later. Nowadays, feminized seeds help us save a lot of time, space and, definitely, money. These are the main reasons why feminized seeds have a great acceptance among the costumers.
In Gea Seeds, we offer a wide strain of feminized cannabis seeds of the best genetics around the world. Only pure females have been used for the production of the seed, guaranteeing a final product of high quality.
