While we are also working on feminized seeds, most of what we produce at Greenpoint are regular marijuana seeds. When germinated, regular marijuana seeds produce about 50% female and 50% male plants. Female plants are desired for their high resin, terpene, and cannabinoid production as well as large floral clusters. When you smoke cannabis or marijuana, you are smoking flowers from a female plant.
If these flowers have seeds in them, it means that a male plant was present among the females during the flowering growth stage. Male plants produce much lower quantities of resin, terpenes, cannabinoids, and flowers compared to females. Instead, males produce pollen, which is used to fertilize a female flower. If a female is pollinated by a male plant, she will produce flowers full of seeds that are less than ideal for smoking or otherwise consuming. This is why commercial grow rooms only grow female plants–seeds are extremely undesirable in high quality marijuana or cannabis flowers.
The resulting seeds will possess 50% DNA from each parent, just like you! This means that in order to produce high quality seeds, both parents must be of exceptional quality. A breeder could be using excellent females, but the male pollen donor must have desirable attributes as well. Since male plants do not produce flowers the same way that females do, it is much more difficult to determine if a male plant will be a desirable breeder or not.
In reality, the only way to know if a male plant is worth breeding with is by test-growing his offspring, and seeing if they display desirable traits. If a male plant consistently produces high quality progeny, then he is obviously a desirable breeder. If he is inconsistent or consistently produces undesirable plants, then he should not be used for breeding.
This makes marijuana breeding a laborious process requiring patience, diligence and integrity. At Greenpoint, we have all of the above, and only sell regular seeds that have parents with proven and verified genetic value after rigorous testing.
