Although the process of feminization of cannabis seeds is known since the 70's, it was not until 1998 that Dutch Passion began its studies with commercial feminized seeds. Since then, numerous banks have started producing feminised marijuana seeds, offering a wide range of feminised genetics worldwide.
The feminisation process of seeds
The process of getting feminized cannabis seeds starts by getting pure female plants. Female plants can be distinguished pure because they don´t show hermaphrodite traits even when submitted to stress by changing their photoperiod or environmental/feeding conditions.
The second step in the process of feminization is getting the pure female to reproduce with itself. Although pure female plants have no male flowers, these can be achieved by using certain plant hormones or salts.
In a relatively short period of time, many feminised varieties have appeared on the market ensuring only females, which are mostly preferred by novice growers.
Here you have a selection of top quality feminised seeds.
