Hi! Thanks for checking out the Get Growing series, sponsored by Growers Choice Cannabis Seeds.

Today we’re going to talk about feminized seeds.

Now, Growers Choice sells only feminized cannabis seeds, and as cannabis gardeners ourselves, we can speak to the great qualities of these special seeds, which save you a step or two in the growing process, and can even save your entire crop from ruin.

First, a bit of background on cannabis gender:

As you know, flora – like humans – have male and female plants or parts and – like humans – the male plants can fertilize the females. While this is a great thing for the Circle of Life, it’s not such good news for your cannabis crop. You see, female cannabis plants are the ones who create bud (males do not), and if your female plant is pollinated by a male plant, your potential flower harvest is basically kaput.

As if Mother Nature knew how many wonderful medical qualities this unique plant would have, she built in a neat little failsafe: if a female cannabis plant is exceedingly stressed, or if it can tell that there are no viable male plants nearby, it can develop the ability to self-pollinate, in order to preserve its line. It is this nifty little skill that makes cannabis perfectly suited to the feminization process.

What is a feminized seed, you may wonder:

If a female plant ends up pollinating or fertilizing itself, there is a 99 percent chance all the seeds produced from this union will be female. The reason is pretty straight-forward: no male interaction equals no X chromosomes that might result in male plants!

“Feminized seeds” are cannabis seeds harvested exclusively from female plants that have created their own seeds. And that’s all that will ever be in your Growers Choice medical-grade glass vial!

So, why should you buy feminized seeds?

When you’re growing cannabis, you have a lot of factors to worry about. You need to make sure your plants germinate, get enough (but not too much) water and nutrients, receive the right amount of light and darkness, and don’t get too cold or too dry. The last thing you need is one more vital point to add to the list.

If you plant regular cannabis seeds, you’ll have to learn to identify male plants at an early stage. You have to watch your crop closely, and weed out the males before they grow old enough to pollinate your female plants.

Problem number one: If you miss a male plant, it could end up fertilizing your whole crop, and all your bud could go to seed. That’s bad.

Problem number two: You have to plant about twice as many cannabis seeds than desired plants, because there’s a good chance you’ll end up pulling half of them. This means money spent on seeds you won’t use, and gaps in your grow room that could have been put to better use making home-grown medicine.

If you buy feminized seeds, you’re 99% guaranteed to avoid both these problems, and with them a lot of potential stress. You’ll end up with a beautiful crop of big, healthy flowers that can ease a whole host of ailments from a sore neck to seizures!

So, guys – if your primary goal is to grow a bunch of all-natural medicine, why would you buy anything but feminized seeds?
