Knowing the Different Cannabis Seeds
Marijuana is something far more complex than a harvest plant. There are very focused methods to properly produce the medicinal crop and it starts with the cannabis seeds. Of course, the plant wouldn’t be as diverse as it was without the knowledge of the different types of seeds. Different marijuana seeds will produce different plants; or no plants at all. Although there are different types, there are also different growing methods that can weigh in on how well the plant will harvest.
First, there is the autoflower seed. Although the technical term is Cannabis Ruderalis, we can probably assume “autoflower” came from the sheer versatility of this seed. These seeds requires no specific light cycle in order for them to start flowering. Meaning, you can plant the autoflower seed basically anywhere and expect to be harvesting in about 8-10 weeks! The downside of autoflowing seeds is the simple fact of not being able to have your cake and eat it too. These seeds usually don’t hold as much THC content. Although that may be looked at as a complete downside, they hold a pretty hefty CBD content which makes these seeds perfect for breeding with potent Indica and sativa strains that would give medical marijuana users the perfect trip.
Another example of cannabis seeds is the feminized seed. Feminized seeds are perfect for growers that don’t breed. These seeds are essential for pollinating into flowers, and not more seeds. Most of the time, a female seed will result in a strong good cannabis plant. Feminized seeds carry a small chance of growing into hermaphrodites but for the most part, these seeds are essential for some succulent and plush buds.
Third, we have the regular marijuana seed. These seeds are the more familiar kind and although they require more attention, it’s what we have come familiar with. These cannabis seeds will eventually need a constant changing light cycle in the start of the flowering stage and it’s important to expect a division of male and female seeds. Besides the fact that they require more intentness, regular seeds will surely satisfy marijuana growers.
