Cannabis that grows in the wild is usually hermaphrodite plants. This means they contain the physical traits of males and females. This genetic profile comes as a result of needing to self-populate. Most commercialized plants have hermaphrodite genes bred out of them in a time-saving measure. Quality feminised seeds are incredibly resistant to developing this gene, especially when cultivated in the right conditions. Feminised seeds are created by a grower breeding two female plants together, ensuring their offspring will be female. We achieve this spraying the juvenile flowers with STS (Silver Thiosulfate Solution) to alter their development.

In our case, the developing pollen sacs on the female plant (sprayed with STS) are let to flower ad naturaly used to pollinate the harvestable buds of other female plants in our controlled indoor tents. This results in the seeds developing with just female genes, and greatly reduces the chance of cross polliantion. As male plants can fertilize multiple females, the popularity of feminised seeds continues to significantly aid the future preservation of cannabis strains for generations to come.

Feminised seeds are great for a beginner grower if raised properly. They will produce buds no matter what. There’s no guesswork involved.

FYI — There are different methods to induce a female plant to produce pollen, such as spraying it with a silver solution, rodelization, or using gibberellic acid. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages, depending on the desired outcome and the available resources. Some methods are more reliable and consistent than others, while some may have side effects or risks of producing hermaphrodite plants, which have both male and female characteristics.
