Do feminized seeds produce feminized seeds?

The History of Feminized Seeds

Feminized seeds are not unique to the cannabis industry. Cannabis growers began experimenting with feminized seeds in the late 1980s, and breeders began selling these seeds in the late 1990s. Initially, however, feminized seeds proved to be expensive and unreliable. As feminization techniques improved throughout the early 2000s, breeders were able to create stable and reliable seeds that were 99.9 percent female. Today, feminized seeds are widely popular among growers and breeders.


What are Feminized Seeds?

Feminized seeds grow under the same conditions as regular seeds, using the same nutrients and light cycles; however, unlike regular cannabis seeds, feminized seeds are bred to produce all-female plants. In fact, 99.9 percent of feminized seeds are female.



Do Feminized Seeds Produce Feminized Seeds?

Breeders who are unfamiliar with feminized seeds may wonder if plants grown from these seeds will produce all-female offspring. The answer is an ambiguous “yes and no.”


What can Feminized Plants Produce?

Feminized plants can produce feminized seeds through the application of a chemical solution or the use of rodelization to form pollen sacs. All of the resulting offspring will be female.
