Growers can avoid spending weeks nurturing plants with only a 50% chance of expressing as female and maximize the space and plant count in their gardens by using feminized seeds from suppliers like Kannabia. These specially-treated seeds increase the probability of producing a female plant to 99%.
That efficiency is key for medical cannabis patients and hobby growers. Since most cannabis regulations limit plant counts, growers cultivating a small crop of cannabis for personal use want to ensure they’re getting the most out of their grow.

Why Grow From Feminized Cannabis Seeds?

This article is sponsored by Kannabia Seed Company, an award-winning cannabis seed company headquartered in Spain. Using only the highest quality genetics on the market, their grower-oriented approach has made cannabis cultivation simple and satisfying for growers of all skill levels for years.
Cannabis plants that are pollinated naturally or with traditional breeding techniques can produce both male or female seeds. These are known as regular seeds and, as in most species, they occur with about an even split between the two sexes. That means cannabis cultivators starting with standard seeds have about a 50% chance of yielding a female plant from each one.
Treating plants with a silver thiosulphate solution results in seeds that will produce feminized plants nearly 100% of the time, and Kannabia’s breeders have found this method to be the most effective way to maintain the stability of the seeds and future feminized plants.
These highly sought after female marijuana (Cannabis, weed) seeds give growers full control over their operations helping eradicate any potential variations in phenotype and ensure only the finest buds are produced. Our range of feminized marijuana (Cannabis, weed) seeds is extensive and developed by our breeders to offer a variety of seeds for all tastes. They consist of Indica, Sativa and hybrid photoperiod and autoflowering genetics which contain Cannabis Cup Winners, Blue, Purple and Cheese strains amongst an array of other weed seed varieties.
Female producing feminized strains, developed specifically for indoor setups.
Feminized marijuana (Cannabis, Weed) seeds are specifically bred to produce 99% female plants. It is these female plants that produce flowers which over the course of the flowering stage develop into the glistening, fragrant buds that are dried, smoked and used to medicate. They are the pot of green gold at the end of the growing cycle rainbow.
In recent years the evolution of weed seed production has allowed MSNL breeders to develop some of the finest feminized seed genetics available. By isolating and removing the male hormone our female cannabis seeds produce 99.9% female plants, allowing growers to increase the speed of production and range of strains they can produce at a given time. Although not always the case, it is generally the male plant that growers try to avoid as it the males which can cross pollinate, fertilizing the female plants in your setup. This leads to a lower quality final product that often leaves buds riddled with seeds.
The hardier of the cannabis strains, outdoor strains grow tall and produce big yields.

The creation and evolution of Feminized cannabis seeds have been one of the defining moments in the expansion of the cannabis market over the last few decades.
Wild cannabis plants are typically hermaphrodites, meaning they carry the physical traits of both sexes. This is done as an emergency response to the lack of either sex in a certain crop and also allows for self-pollination. This dioecious trait has been bred-out of most contemporary, commercialized plants, in order to manipulate the cultivation process and save time by removing the need to sex plants. Good quality feminized strains on the commercial market are all but resistant to becoming hermaphrodites, particularly if grown in proper conditions.
Because male plants can fertilise many females, the popularity of feminized seeds continues to significantly aid the future preservation of cannabis strains for generations to come.
Before feminized seeds were introduced to the market, regular seeds were the norm. These were typically made up of 50% male and 50% female seeds. This was often a source of frustration for growers who were forced to double the number of seedlings in order to ensure a satisfactory number of female plants for future cultivation.
The creation of feminized cannabis seeds meant that the inconvenience of male plants, particularly their size, was no longer a concern.
Today. Feminized seeds are bred in a way that enables them to develop and flower as female plants only. Their breeding process eliminates virtually all male chromosomes; the probability of female plants growing is 99.9%.
