This seedy weed could mean that the grower didn’t properly identify the male plants. Most growers will remove these plants immediately to ensure that their female plants are not pollinated.
The other option is that the plant has self pollinated. This is rare but that still does happen. This self pollination usually happens when the plant is stressed while undergoing the budding phase but sometimes it can manifest because of genetics or light leak during necessary dark times. This is often referred to as a hermaphrodite plant.
Why This Matters
Low quality pot won’t give you the high you want, but it might give you a headache and some sleepy vibes. This usually has a lot of stems in it, leaves, and even seeds . If you notice that the weight of the weed you’re purchasing is more than you expected it’s not because your dealer is your friend. it’s probably because you have low quality weed with seeds.
If you’re feeling ambitious you can take the seeds out of your pot and try to grow from them. Here are a couple tips for determining whether or not to grow with the seeds you find:
That said, visual cues might not be enough to evaluate your weed 100% but it can help you to conduct at best a preliminary inspection before you buy.
Furthermore, when the pollen that was produced from the male plant touches the white hairs on a female plant’s flower(s), it makes a seed, which shouldn’t be smoked unless you want to get a headache afterward. Unfortunately, marijuana seeds that are found on or within nugs could cause discomfort, which is the opposite of what many people use marijuana for.

However, oftentimes, those seeds fail to germinate, which means that they fail to sprout, as mentioned by Royal Queen Seeds. Also, if the original bud wasn’t that great from the beginning, then why would you want to reproduce that mediocre�strain?
Reasons Why Marijuana Seeds Can Be Found on or Within Cannabis Nugs
Even if you have your mind made up and you want to grow your own plants from the marijuana seeds you found, you must make sure that you have the proper resources and nutrients the plant needs to grow to its full potential, including enough light, water, and space for it to grow. Also, you must make sure that you not only live in an area where marijuana is legal, but you also must get approval from a landlord/owner of an apartment building, condo, and/or townhouse if you live in any of these establishments before growing.
If you smoked bud before that contained marijuana seeds, you may have experienced a headache or felt worse as a result. In general, if you’re sold marijuana that contains seeds, don’t consume it because it won’t be the best experience you can get from the plant. Overall, it’s not uncommon for people to find seeds in their cannabis nugs after buying it off the black market. Heading to a dispensary is probably a better bet.
Also, bud that contains marijuana seeds often contains little to no THC and tastes bad. Couple that with a headache, and nobody wants to have this kind of experience.
