The only bummer, unless you grow from clones, is that cannabis is wired to produce about 50% male seeds and 50% females. It is just the nature of the beast.
Feminized seeds are super efficient for indoor and outdoor gardeners. Area, time, and resources aren’t being given to plants that will be thrown away two weeks after the 12-12 flip. Similarly, outdoors where a large plant can consume a lot of time and resources in upkeep prior to the autumn show of flowers, feminized plants are also a good way to reduce guerrilla crop pollinating. There’s nothing worse than bush-bashing out to a well-hidden crop only to find a rogue male or two have impregnated every female plant.
Colloidal silver is a distilled water-based solution in which microscopic particles of silver are suspended. The nature of colloids means the particles will never settle out and can’t be removed by normal filtering. Colloidal silver is available commercially, or you can make your own if you want to totally geek out (see how-to section at the end). It has numerous uses as an alternative medicine. For example, it is used to soothe burns, as an antiseptic and digestion stimulant in people, and as a fungal control in horticulture.
Growing from feminized cannabis seeds is a space and resource-efficient way of getting all girls, all the time. Find out how to create your own feminized cannabis with Royal Queen Seeds.
“Applications that reduce the ethylene level in tissues or antagonise the action of ethylene causes the formation of male flowers instead of female ones” — Paraphrase, Byers et al., 1972.
Where there are more distinct differences between the subspecies, however, is in their growth and morphology:
Outdoors, planting your feminized cannabis in an optimal climate and during the right season is pivotal. Why? Because sunlight hours change depending on the season, and your plants need a specific schedule to thrive. To satisfy this need, you will usually want to plant them in spring (when there’s no frost) and harvest in fall.
SATIVA, INDICA, HYBRID, AND RUDERALIS STRAINS
• Indicas grow short and bushy, with wide leaves. They’re often quite robust, and grow in many environments.
There are a few distinct types, or subspecies, of cannabis. The two major categories are sativa and indica, but there are also hybrid and ruderalis strains to consider.
• Those who use cannabis for holistic purposes also choose feminized strains for their pronounced effect. They may find that the THC lifts their mood and helps them wind down in tense situations, or simply takes the edge off whatever symptom they’re dealing with. Users also report that THC helps them achieve a good night’s sleep, along with other benefits.
Captain Redbeard Seeds Captain Redbeard started out in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program in 2006. Trained by a master grower, he spent his early years focusing on patient care and low cost access to organic medicine. Over the years he became a successful grower, always providing clean organic medicine for as many patients as the law allowed. In 2010 he switched gears to producing stable genetics for his fellow growers. Always playing the mad scientist, he has created some of the most interesting crosses and continues to strive for genetic stability while maintaining ease of growing for beginners. All cannabis seeds bred by Captain Redbeard‘s seedbank are geared towards easy growing, potency and yield.
We have been licensed medical marijuana growers in Oregon for over two decades. We have grown over 150 strains and selected the best of Indica, Sativa, Hybrid and CBD. We continue to select the very best plants of each strain for breeding. After many years of breeding, we believe these seeds represent some of the best strains available anywhere.
