The difference between male and female seeds is important for growers. To get big harvests of smokable buds, you want only female plants. Male plants, on the other hand, can cause a lot of problems as they will pollinate the female flowers, which makes the buds produce seeds. While some people argue for the usefulness of male cannabis plants, most growers are primarily interested in big, seed-free flowers from female plants.
Buying seeds directly from a brick-and-mortar shop gives you the benefit of being able to talk to an expert before making your purchase. Make sure the dispensary you’re buying from has employees who are experienced with the growing process.
For the last 50 years of cannabis cultivation, crossbreeding has been the name of the game. As a result, there’s virtually no such thing as a pure indica or sativa anymore. Every seed you’ll consider purchasing is probably a hybrid. Classifying a particular cultivar or strain as indica or sativa usually means that its genetic makeup tends more toward one side or the other of the indica-sativa spectrum.
Regular marijuana seeds, feminized seeds, or autoflowering seeds?
Buying online may be the simplest way to purchase cannabis seeds. Online retailers often have a larger selection and may provide more detailed information than smaller brick-and-mortar stores.
When you buy regular seeds, some will grow up to produce male plants and others will grow into female plants. Therefore, growing regular cannabis seeds requires you to pay close attention to the sex of each plant so you can get rid of any males that sprout. Male marijuana plants produce fewer, smaller, less-potent flowers, and therefore will not give you much to smoke. Even worse, males will pollinate your female plants and cause them to produce low-quality buds that are full of seeds. If you plant regular seeds, plan to buy more than you might actually need, as a higher percentage of these weed seeds will produce male plants.
Another question to ask yourself is whether you want to be an indoor grower or an outdoor grower.
When you’ve decided which strain to grow, do a bit of research to familiarize yourself with the unique cultivation needs of that strain. While there are general guidelines for growing any type of cannabis, each strain has its own specific needs. Some strains do better in specific parts of the world or climates. Growing a strain that is well-suited to your climate will make it easier on you and the plants while giving you better odds of a successful harvest. If you aren’t certain what strain you want to grow, you can always give mixed packs of seeds a try, though it may be difficult to replicate any successes.
Despite the rise in advanced, specifically bred female genetics, the popularity of regular cannabis seeds has remained strong amongst enthusiasts. The pure genetics are highly sought by growers looking for greater flexibility in their gardens and increased value for money. Until recent years growers had no choice but use regular seeds however the introduction of feminized seeds has seen many seed breeders neglect the regular strain category.
and in recent years have concentrated our efforts on producing regular only strains in an effort to maintain genetic heritage. It is this commitment to breeding that allows MSNL to offer one of the largest catalogues of regular marijuana seeds.

Regular marijuana seeds, AKA un-sexed marijuana seeds, can be germinated into both male andfemale cannabis plants (offspring). The seeds are produced when a male plant pollenates a female plant. Regular seeds produce approximately 50% female and 50% male offspring. The female offspring produce flowers that are cured into bud and the male offspring produce pollen sacs that scatter pollen into the surrounding environment. The pollen from the male is blown by the wind, or transported by a breeder, to a nearby female cannabis plant’s stigmas at which point the female is pollinated and will produce flowers containing seeds. Growers will often separate the male plants from the female plants to avoid a crop of seedy flowers. One major reason growers want their yields seed-free is because people usually don’t want to smoke seeds. For breeders, however, there are many advantages of producing both female and male offspring. One advantage is the opportunity for experimentation with physical characteristics. Some breeders and expert growers buy regular seeds and germinate 5-10 seeds at a time to observe multiple expressions of a particular strain’s genetics (phenotype) in order to select the plant whose phenotype fits their breeding goals.
