People who like to enjoy a joint, vaporize or eat edibles owe their pleasure to a female cannabis plant. Because only the female plants produce the coveted buds that are full of cannabinoids like THC. That is why most cannabis growers work with seeds that do not contain male genetics. When you buy feminized seeds, you are 100% sure that all your plants will be females.
If you buy seeds that are not feminized, you have a 50% chance that the plant will become male and as everyone knows, you have to get rid of that as soon as possible. The result of buying not-feminized seeds is that you won’t only lose your money from buying the seeds, but also half of your potential harvest, which is a real shame.
There are many campfire stories about feminized seeds, as well as about hermaphrodites, plants that display both sexes. Both the female and male plants produce flowers, eventough of different nature. Under certain conditions, female plants can produce male flowers and vice versa. This is an unusual survival strategy that allows the cannabis plant to propagate itself, even if it is an annual plant.
This survival strategy starts when the plant is grown in unfavorable growing conditions. She is aware that the chance of survival is very small and that she must take action to save herself. It is less likely that a plant of a different sex is too close for her to fertilize. If this does happen, female plants will develop stamen flowers so that they produce pollen. It also allows them to pollinate their female flowers to produce seeds for the following year.
If your intention is to grow your own plants, to harvest your cannabis yourself, and you are not going to experiment with crossbreeding plants, a male plant is not much use. Of course you can put twice as many seeds in the ground than the number of plants you want, but that is also useless. You should also be able to detect what a male or female plant is so that you can remove them as quickly as possible.
If you are going to grow your plants yourself, you should know that they have to pre-grow before you can let them bloom. The pre-growth serves to make the plants bigger and stronger and until they have grown past their childhood, you will not be able to determine the sex yet.
