If you have had these thoughts, then you are not alone! Most marijuana consumers at some point in their weed consumption journey start to wonder if it is safe to smoke cannabis seeds.
Does this scenario sound familiar to you?
What to do with cannabis seeds?
You can get creative and use your weed seeds in other ways, but smoking them is a bad idea!
So you’re either a serious cannabis cultivator with a side hustle or occasionally grow marijuana in your backyard to get your hands on high-quality and inexpensive weed for a good smoking session.
It does not matter how tempted you are or how desperate times may get, there are plenty of other things you can do with them!
Marijuana seeds contain none of the psychoactive properties of cannabis, so if getting high is your main objective, ‘option B’ may have to be deployed. Not only are marijuana seeds devoid of THC, but smoking them along with the rest of your cannabis material will create a less than ideal flavour and aroma, and may cause a bit of a scare, as seeds tend to pop and crackle suddenly when exposed to extreme heat.
When busting your bud up, take a moment to pick them out, and all should be well. That said, there’s no need to hit the panic button if the odd one sneaks past your initial scan and gets ingested.
The overall consensus is that smoking marijuana seeds are not harmful to your health. If you want to know if you “can” smoke marijuana seeds, then the answer is yes, you can, but there is little to nothing to be gained from it.

During the vegetative growth phase (when cannabis is maturing into a seedling), the male plants have higher THC concentrates in the leaves. It is only when the female plants mature to the adult stage that they have a higher potency. Female plants are the only sex to create sinsemilla. That is the compound that produces the psychoactive effects in THC.
Did you know that about 80% of plants on the planet are self-pollinating? Cannabis is a highly evolved plant. It is a dioecious species, which means it has separate male and female plants. Cannabis plants have three sexes. There can be male plants and female plants. And occasionally, a strain will produce hermaphrodite plants (both male and female).
Hermaphrodite Cannabis Plants Have It Worse

Full disclosure? Cultivators and dispensaries know that ‘seeded weed’ is a goof up. They know that it still can provide some wellness benefits. However, both the aesthetic and some of the seeded weed side-effects make the product less desirable to patients.
Just because cannabis seeds are not ideal for smoking doesn’t mean that they will go to waste. There are other ways you can repurpose them after you separate or sift them from your bud.
