female hemp seeds

Since the hemp plants chosen for creating the seeds are female to begin with, forced male flowers on these plants will carry almost all X chromosomes and the seeds resulting from a self pollination will be female plants at around at 99% rate.

What Is Feminized Hemp Seed?

Feminized hemp seeds refer to seeds that have been produced from female hemp plants that have been forced or coaxed into producing male flowers utilizing a variety of different methods.

Since the hemp plants chosen for creating the seeds are female to begin with, forced male flowers on these plants will carry almost all X chromosomes and the seeds resulting from a self pollination will be female plants at around at 99% rate.

These feminized seeds will carry a double XX chromosome instead of the standard XY split that results from traditional pollination from a male plant.

How Is Hemp Seed Feminized?

Feminized hemp seeds can be produced in a number of ways:

Most simply, female plants may be left to grow un-pollinated far beyond their natural harvest date, which will then cause many varieties of cannabis to throw out male flowers in response to the stress.

Essentially, as the plant reaches its maturity, and has still not been able to fulfill it’s mission to reproduce and create seeds, it then resorts to whatever measures it has to take to ensure its future generations through self pollination which can include producing its own male flowers.

However not all strains of cannabis will produce male flowers predictably in this fashion, making this process of feminization less feasible on a commercial scale.

A more reliable and commonly used method of creating feminized seed is to apply a solution of gibberellic acid or colloidal silver to select female plants which in turn will also stimulate the production of male flowers.

The pollen produced by these male flowers would in turn be considered feminized pollen and will carry almost 100% female chromosomes. Any female flowers subsequently pollinated with this pollen will produce nearly 100% female offspring utilizing this technique.

Hermaphrodites

This feminization process must be carried out using carefully selected mother plants in order to reduce the prevalence of hermaphroditism in seeds created in this manner.

Cannabis plants will naturally show hermaphroditic traits across various phenotypes, thus seeds produced from plants with hermaphroditic genetic traits beget more hermaphroditic offspring… instead of the desired 99% and above ratio of females plants obtained from proper feminization.

Mother plant selections from proven genetics are crucial for this reason in the creation of stable, predictable, feminized seed stock with a low prevalence of hermaphroditic expressions.

High CBD Industrial Hemp Seeds

“High CBD” feminized hemp seeds are produced simply by selecting high CBD, low THC cultivars of industrial hemp and using one of the above processes in order to produce a feminized seed with the desired genetic profile.

Female hemp seeds
Then you are (almost entirely) sure that you are only cultivating feminine plants. The gender of the plant is determined by two chromosomes, namely the X and Y chromosome. A plant with two X chromosomes becomes feminine and a plant with an X and Y chromosome becomes male. Feminised seeds are made by means of gibberellic acid (a hormone found in plants). Because of this, the feminine plant is forced to produce male flowers. The feminine plant becomes hermaphrodite and this makes it possible to produce seeds that have two chromosomes and are thus feminine.

Feminised cannabis seeds

Feminised cannabis seeds are genetically altered so that they produce feminine plants in at least 95% of the cases. This forms a great advantage as only feminine cannabis plants produce flowers. The male cannabis plants don’t produce flowers, contain little THC and can even influence the production of THC of feminine plants. The feminine cannabis plant produces considerably more working substances such as THC, CBD, CBG and CBN than a male cannabis plant. Suzy Seeds only sells feminised cannabis seeds. Before bringing the seeds on the market, they are first thoroughly tested and further cultivated, so that we are sure that our plants are genetically stable and consistent.

Suzy’s Tip: You can only smoke the flowers of female plants, so only buy feminised seeds.
