As the modern Marijuana growers and users need better strains for their medications and satisfaction, different Seed Banks have mass-produced Feminized Seeds which are undoubtedly more potent, more powerful and more preferred strains in the present times. However, as this sudden change happens, the Marijuana communities have seen the good and bad sides of this big story.
Here are the advantages and disadvantages of growing your Feminized Marijuana Seeds.
Defining the Seed of the Moment
As we all know, Feminized Seeds are the newest seeds that came from effective genetic changes applied by the scientists who invented this strain during the 70s and 80s.
This bold scientific invention has been a breakthrough for the Cannabis Industry regardless of what is happening around the world during those times, especially in the United States, Middle East, Vietnam, the Soviet Union, Africa, and the looming Asian Crisis.
As the growers found effective ways to make the regular seeds successfully turn to feminized seeds, the Cannabis Industry, particularly those included in the Medical Cannabis sector, have enjoyed Cannabinoid-rich flowers that offer their much-awaited flavors and effects.
However, this genetic modification pursues the female plants to have male pollens for seed reproduction. Different scientific laboratories have been offered to make a Feminized Marijuana Seed purely independent, in terms of pollination but they all fail- and this is due to the genetic structure of different genders that must be mixed, to satisfy their shortcomings.
Your Advantages with the Feminized Seeds
Feminized Seeds are friendly for the new growers
Feminized seeds are easy to grow, compared with the regular seeds that are also out in the market. Some Cannabis Users do not fully know this ability of Feminized seeds because this genetic milestone for the Marijuana Industry has been suppressed during the early years, to avoid panic buying with the seeds that are easier to nourish and grow.
When planting these seeds, Feminized plants will not need you to check its male parts that may slow down its growth because the male chromosomes which build up the male properties of each plant, is simply nowhere to be found. The plant’s genetic composition is a perfect 100% coming from female genes.
As the plants grow, they even create bigger buds and better flowers which the growers are seeking after for. These flowers have different qualities depending on the strains they are designed to. With this property, the feminized seeds suddenly became a big hit for the new growers of the year 2000 onwards.
Feminized Seeds are responsible for growing that much-awaited flowers and buds
Yes, and the male seeds have nothing to do with its growth, aside from slowing it down or infesting the rest of its system, that’s why they should be cut off.
Feminized seeds are in-charge of creating spaces for the future flowers of your Marijuana Strains that are tremendously special and essential. It is in flowers that you can check the strain’s abilities with its smell, composition and flower size.
On the other hand, all feminized plants create better buds than those plants of 50/50 Chromosomes. It has been proven that feminized buds can create higher concentrations of chemicals due to their unregulated growth with time. They also do not experience stressful situations such as compromising the male’s regulation and physical contact with humans because they have to cut off the male parts.
With this powerful property of all feminized seeds, growers have priced them higher than the regular seeds.
Feminized Seeds can be more potent than the regular and autoflowering seeds
Studies show that a Feminized Plant can store more THC content than a regular or autoflowering plant and this is because of their genetic make-up. Feminized Plants are designed to create and create terpenes for the plant’s protection against the external environment by creating the resinous coats.
Meanwhile, the regular seeds are known to promote terpene development while focusing on pollination and creation of seeds by the female part, to be triggered by the male segments.
On the other hand, autoflowering plants cannot sustain more potent THC or CBD volumes due to their automatic cycles, only to be stopped if cut forcibly by its grower or withered over a long time.
They are more preferred by a growing number of users
Because of its potency, a feminized strain can have higher chances of attracting the public’s attention. As we know, the majority of users are going after the potency and cerebral effects, which may not be done by the other plants existing in our time.
Despite its higher price, they are still considered as must-be-planted seeds by the other expert users. Among all of the users that we can encounter nowadays, it is the senior groups who can recommend to you the best of the most that you can ever get and experience.
After all, the veteran users always aim the best for their younger broods and to experience this greatness, an older must recommend the usage of a feminized seed to them. Indeed, you have to save the best for the last.
Your Disadvantages with them
Feminized Seeds are more expensive than the regular ones
Since they are the backbone of the Marijuana Industry, the regular seeds are the most affordable of all seeds available in the present times. The commercial price regular seeds serve as the standard of other seeds’ price. However, the regular seeds may have different price, depending on the strains that they have, which is also applied with the Feminized Seeds.
The regular seeds are the first to be sold through grams, pieces, and sacks. There are accounts in the earlier times that the seeds of Hemp Plants, a relative of Marijuana Plants, are being sold per sacks due to its abundance in the forests. The African Slaves during the Colonial Period have sustained wide access with the regular plants despite them being penniless when they arrived in the places where they were forced to labor.
The format of pricing with the regular seeds in the Western Countries has been adopted by the rest of the world, with the worth heavily relying on the quality of the seeds, the strains, and its possible potency.
Feminized Seeds are more sensitive than the other races
After all, these seeds that were produced from the careful and detailed ways of genetic manipulation, have also its downside. One of which is that they are too sensitive.
You will prefer not to touch them at all times during their flowering cycle because it will badly affect the quality of their flowers and buds in the future. It will also hurt their system, making it work with not the same perfection anymore. Every stress that you will apply on them means lesser highs for you, lighter effect and weaker medicinal treatment.
If I were you, I will just disregard the temptation of touching the feminized plants every single day. Just let them grow and things will perfectly fall into places, just like how they did trial and errors during those years of the invention for feminizing the seeds.
- It’s the regular seeds, not the feminized ones, who are the most stable among the seed genders or variations
No questions asked they are the strongest, most able, most enduring, most flexible and the most resistant to any kinds of weather. The regular seeds will not be called regular if they cannot function as the standard to what other Marijuana strains should do.
These regular seeds are more immune to any weather changes because they are intact and complete in body systems, unlike the feminized strains who are already female at all, with missing parts for stronger system against the external factors and interference.
The regular seeds can also withstand kinds of stress, depending on the extent of the stress that they will face. Unlike the feminized seeds, the regular seeds can keep its quality despite being shaken physically or faced with a sudden change of weather conditions in the area where it grows. However, like the feminized seeds, the regular ones will be affected, especially their potency, if any of these changes will prevail over the area where they are growing.
They cannot reproduce seeds
They can dominate the world with their best-kept qualities and abilities, but one cannot deny that a feminized seed cannot reproduce a seed from its own. At the end of the day, when you need to develop seeds to further create Cannabis Seeds, you will need the male seeds. Whether you like it or not, that is simply how nature dictates us of our important individual roles for the balance of life.
The same applies to these plants who almost have all of the privileges that a beautiful Cannabis Plant can have. They may be considered as the most enhanced plant race of all time, but they cannot reproduce on their own, and they will still need the male seeds for the continuity of life.
