What are marijuana seeds?
Marijuana (Cannabis) is a plant that can reproduce both sexually and asexually. When we talk of asexual reproduction we are referring to the execution of cuttings or clones of a mother plant.
Cannabis reproduces sexually by seeds. Marijuana is a dioecious plant. That means, it produces male or stamen plants which flowers generate pollen. Marijuana also produces female egg-producing plants which are fertilized with the male pollen. Later on, cannabis seeds will be generated and, in the future, they will form a new specimen, ensuring the survival of the specie.
Each seed of marijuana is composed by the genes of its parents, father and mother. These genes will dictate the characteristics of the future plant: growth pattern, plant shape, smell, taste, effect or the concentration of cannabinoids such as THC or CBD. To guarantee a high quality progeny, the chosen parents must be healthy and strong because of the genetic inheritance.
However, genetic transmission does not make all marijuana seeds produced from some determined parents the same. There are common characteristics but also differences. This is a great advantage in selecting specimens. That is why breeders use sexual reproduction to choose those individuals who, due to their special characteristics, they are interested in preserving and breeding. Generally, cannabis strains are created with the aim of accentuating some characteristics such as yield, taste or the adaptation to a particular cultivation system.
Most marijuana seeds are hybrids made from crosses of the main cannabis families: Indica, Sativa and Rudelaris. However, there are still pure species that have not been crossed with others. These species are known as landraces or purebreds. There are also preserved seeds of strains exclusively crossed between each other, known as IBL (InBrided Line). These strains are very stable and homogeneous and they guarantee very similar specimens.
Generally, cannabis seeds are classified into three main categories:
regular cannabis seeds are those that can produce male and female plants. They are the traditional marijuana seeds. They have certain advantages as being stronger and they are the best choice if you want to have them as mothers. But they also have certain inconveniences such as having to discriminate against males to prevent pollination.
Feminized cannabis seeds are those that produce female plants with resinous buds that are highly appreciated by cannabis consumers. These kind of seeds are obtained by an special treatment, designed to produce only feminized seeds. Generally, a cannabis seed can develop into a male or female plant but a feminized seed will produce a female plant in the 99% of cases. In fact, regular cannabis seeds sometimes have a tendency to produce more male than female plants. So, if you want female plants, buy our feminized seeds.
The automatic or autoflowering seeds are those that allow us to obtain easy harvests in a very short time (2 months). We are able to obtain that incredible results even out of season (offseason). It is because autoflowering plants flourish depending on time instead of depending on light cycles. And what is more, they are very strong and productive plants so they are highly recommended for novice growers or beginners
Marijuana seeds have a different appearance depending on the strain: some are darker, others are whitish and their size are also very different. To know if a seed of cannabis is a good quality one, first of all, we have to take a look at its appearance. Good mature cannabis seeds will be hard and dark or brown with spots. Depending on the strain, the size will vary. For example, indica strains tend to produce large seeds with stripes, and sativa cannabis seeds tend to be smaller, with little markings on the seed casing.
Good quality mature seeds have a vigorous germination and produce strong and robust marijuana plants. On the other hand, if they are whitish, green, cracked or weak, these seeds will be unlikely to germinate or if they do it, will probably produce weak plants. Never forget that, good seeds produce good buds.
However, a good conservation is essential to ensure a high quality product. Seeds must be in a cool, dark and dry place, with a humidity of less than 5% and a temperature that oscillates between 2-10ºC. Seeds over one-year-old, even if they are kept in good conditions, will lose vigor in germination and will become old.
Gea Seeds is a guarantee of quality, since we select all our cannabis seeds that we pack according to their batch number. We ensure the control of the product and the maximum homogeneity of the specimens. Our seeds are kept in optimum conditions: in refrigerators with a 5% of humidity and a temperature of 10ºC. In addition, we continuously renew our stock. We aim to offer the freshest seeds, guaranteeing that have not remained for long periods in our stock. So you can obtain a vigorous germination with all the guarantees.
