Feminized Cannabis Seeds
After first appearing on the weed seed market in the 1990s, feminized seeds have become an instant hit with growers worldwide. As a result, it’s now much more common practice among weed enthusiasts to buy feminized cannabis seeds instead of regular cannabis seeds. This is mostly because few amateurs or casual growers want to deal with male cannabis plants, which can’t be smoked due to their miniscule THC levels. Feminized weed seeds solve this problem, as they produce female plants in 99.9% of cases.
What are feminized seeds?
Feminized seeds are nothing more than a product of genetic engineering and a beautiful fruit of the scientific advancement of the cannabis industry. While traditionally, seeds grow to become either male or female plants, feminized seeds are genetically manipulated in such a way that results in them growing into female cannabis plants only.
If you don’t understand what all the fuss is about when it comes to female cannabis plants and why everybody wants them rather than male cultivars, the answer is simple: only female cannabis plants, when unpollinated, develop so-called sinsemilla, which are the buds people love to smoke and turn into various concentrates and ointments.
Why should you buy feminized cannabis seeds?
While seeds that have been feminized tend to be more expensive than regular cannabis seeds, they’re just too convenient not to buy them. First of all, they free the grower from the need to sex cannabis – a process that takes time and plenty of experience to perfect. If you buy feminized seeds, you don’t need to worry about male plants appearing in your garden and ruining your harvest. You can just sit back and relax!
Despite the difference in price, buying feminized cannabis seeds will actually help you save money. If you choose seeds that are feminized, you won’t have to buy ten or fifteen regular ones in the hopes that at least five of them will grow into females. Instead, just get yourself five feminized seeds and in return, you’ll have five perfect female plants. Simple weed math!
Pros and cons of feminized seeds
Despite providing mostly advantages to growers, feminized cannabis seeds have certain disadvantages as well. Let’s take a look at both the pros and cons of growing feminized cannabis seeds.
Pros of feminized seeds:
- No need to buy extra seeds, as is the case with regular cannabis seeds
- No need to sex the growing plants, hence feminized cannabis seeds save you time
- No risk of accidental pollination of your crop by male cultivars
- Feminized cannabis seeds grow into cannabis plants with the highest cannabinoid content
- Perfect for beginner growers due to the easier cultivation process
Cons of feminized seeds:
- Not suitable for people attempting to breed cannabis
- Feminized cannabis has limited cloning abilities
If you’re a seed collector, there won’t be much of a difference between choosing feminized or another seed type. Just like with Indica, Sativa, and Ruderalis seeds looking the same, in this case, it’s impossible to say what seed type is in front of you based solely on its appearance.
How to germinate feminized marijuana seeds
Seeds that have been feminized are no different from any other cannabis seeds when it comes to germinating them. Herbies always makes sure to store their cannabis seeds in perfect conditions to ensure a quick and easy germination process. Most growers tend to germinate feminized weed seeds using the classic paper towel method, which has been used by generations of cultivators. Here’s what you need to do to germinate female marijuana seeds:
- Place your cannabis seed on a clean paper towel
- Fold the paper towel in half so that it covers the cannabis seed from the top and bottom
- Lightly spray the paper towel with clean water to moisten it
- Place the paper towel with the seed on a clean plate, and cover this with another plate to create an airtight, dark, and safe germination space
- Wait for 1-2 days until the seed germinates (older seeds can take longer, up to a week or even 10 days, so be patient). Make sure the paper towel remains moist.
Where to grow feminized seeds
Feminized cannabis is perfectly suited for growing both indoors and outdoors, and even in greenhouses, so the deciding factor will mostly be your preference, or else conditions outside your control such as the climate or cannabis laws. Growing indoors will help you keep every condition such as temperature, lighting, and humidity under control. On the other hand, growing outdoors is cheaper because we have the sun, the most natural and powerful light source for cannabis. Growing feminized cannabis in a greenhouse will allow you to benefit from sun power as well as prolong the season with controlled temperatures. Greenhouses also tend to be more discreet for growing marijuana than the outdoors.
Recommended temperature and humidity for growing feminized marijuana
When it comes to comfortable living conditions, people and cannabis are very much alike – both prefer moderate climate conditions. Feminized cannabis thrives best in temperatures ranging between 21-24 C (69-75 F). It’s advised to keep plants in this range to avoid cannabis health problems. However, some cannabis plants love to experience “freeze shock” closer to the end of their cycle. Usually, this is done to boost its potency and reveal blue and purple hues. However, before doing so, be sure to read the breeder’s recommendations.
As for humidity, the recommended level for feminized marijuana will depend on the plant’s lifecycle stage. Normally, seedlings and cannabis in veg prefer humidity levels around 60%. On the other hand, the flowering stage usually requires air humidity levels of 40-50% to reduce the risk of mold.
Which soil is best to use for growing feminized seeds?
Feminized cannabis plants will feel the best and yield the most in nutrient-rich, light, and well-aerated soil. Store-bought soil mixes are normally well-suited for growing cannabis. However, if you want to give your marijuana plant some special treatment, prepare a home-made mix from the following ingredients:
- 3 parts organic starter soil
- 1 part perlite
- 1 part worm castings
- 64g (2.2oz or 1/2 cup) greensand
- 43g (1.5oz or 1/3 cup) guano
- 64g (2.2oz or 1/2 cup) dolomite lime
Mix everything together and soak it for two days in pure water, keeping the soil mix wet constantly. Make sure your soil is mostly dry before transplanting your plant.
Note: this homemade soil is super nutrient-rich and shouldn’t be used for seeds, seedlings, or clones – keep it for mature plants in the vegetative or flowering stage. If you use autoflowering seeds, this mix can be nutrient-sufficient for the whole cycle.
Lifecycle of female seeds
The lifecycle of feminized cannabis consists of six main parts, which are:
- Germination. The feminized seed pops and becomes a sprout, which is then planted in the soil.
- Seedling. In the soil, the feminized seed becomes a seedling. It will soon shed its husk and grow its first pair of leaves.
- The vegetative stage. This is the period of the weed plant’s most potency and growth. Week by week, it’s going to become bigger and more mature, until it’s finally ready to procreate and grow buds.
- The flowering stage. During this period, which begins when the plant starts receiving 12 or fewer hours of light per day (most female seeds are photoperiod), the feminized plants will stretch a little more. Thanks to feminization, all of them will be female and will form smokable sinsemilla buds.
- Harvest. When trichomes on the buds turn from milky-white to amber, it’s time to harvest your feminized weed! Do it on time to reap the best quality and potency.
- Drying and curing. Freshly harvested buds will need some time in a dark, dry area to rest, amplify the flavors, and make the smoke smooth on your throat.
Required amount of light
With some feminized varieties being autoflowering cannabis, most feminized seeds are still photoperiod, meaning they will need 14-20 hours of light during the vegetative stage and 12 during the flowering stage.
While the sun is a perfect resource of light for growing marijuana, indoor cultivation can yield great harvests under artificial light as well. In perfect conditions, each Watt of light energy will bring you 0.5-1g of bud. Use this equation to count the perfect light wattage for your indoor grow op – yield satisfaction guaranteed!
Nutrients for cannabis
N-P-K: these are three very important letters to anyone who wants to grow pot successfully. They stand for nitrogen. phosphorous, and potassium – the three macronutrients essential for pot, the feminized kind included. It’s also important to know that during the vegetative stage, weed plants require more nitrogen, while during the flowering stage, they become especially hungry for potassium and phosphorous.
Besides N-P-K, feminized cannabis also requires a list of certain micronutrients such as iron, calcium, copper, magnesium, etc. We recommend using cannabis-specific nutrients. These usually come in different packages for the vegetative and flowering stages, guarantee the best results, and are easy to use.
Feminized seed yields
The yield size of feminized seeds is in no way inferior to that of regular seeds. Here, everything is going to vary greatly from plant to plant because of several attributing factors, including:
- Genetics. For bigger harvests, choose a feminized strain that yields more. At Herbies, each feminized marijuana strain comes with a yield estimate.
- Light. This variable directly converts to yield size. The more light your weed plant receives, the bigger yields it will bring. In good growing conditions, 1W = 0.5-1g of bud.
- Nutrients. In order to grow bigger buds, your feminized cannabis plants need to eat well. Make sure to provide all essential nutrients and look out for signs of nutrient deficiencies.
Best female seeds
Honestly, it’s impossible to make a wrong choice of female seeds at Herbies, because they’re handpicked from the world’s top breeders to be the best. However, considering there are easily hundreds of strains, you might find some guidelines helpful. So, when choosing feminized seeds at Herbies:
- Pick Indicas or shorter-sized cannabis strains for growing indoors
- Pick large Sativas for growing outdoors and reaping the biggest harvests
- Pick quicker hybrids or Indicas if you grow outdoors and live in colder regions
- Pick feminized strains with up to 20% THC if you’re an inexperienced toker

Feminized Marijuana Seeds
Feminized marijuana seeds are specifically bred to produce female plants 99% of the time. It is these female plants that produce flowers develop into the glistening, fragrant buds that are then enjoyed by all cannabis enthusiasts. They are what all the hard work effort and dedication are all for.
/Feminized Marijuana Seeds 10 2 Feminized Marijuana Seeds https://www.marijuana-seeds.nl/feminized-seeds 2
What are feminized seeds?
Of the many different types of seeds available, it is important to understand exactly what feminized means.
Feminized seeds contain two female (x) chromosomes with no male (Y) chromosomes guaranteeing female plants which produce THC-rich flowers.
Let’s look into this in more detail: Only female cannabis plants produce high levels of THC, other cannabinoids, and terpenes. Marijuana is a Dioecious plant, which means – there are separate male plants and female plants, not both. Some other species of plant have both male and female reproductive parts in the same plant, this is NOT how marijuana plants work. That means that even though male weed plants will still produce very small levels of THC, they won’t be as potent or tasty as female plants.
In addition, male plants produce pollen that, if it lands on a female, makes it produce seeds, which we all know is a red flag for lower-quality weed. Why, because once it’s pollinated all the plant’s energy goes into making seeds, not big fat sticky buds. When you’re buying seeds, you’ll often see ‘feminized’ seeds or regular seeds. If the seeds are regular, they can end up growing into females or males. This increases your risk of male plants pollinating your females and ruining the entire crop overall.
How are marijuana seeds feminized?
Since female plants don’t naturally produce the pollen that’s necessary for breeding, there are specific techniques that breeders will implement to force female plants to pollinate other females.
By repeatedly spraying a female cannabis plant with colloidal silver, you force it to produce pollen sacks that only have female chromosomes in the pollen. This single-sex pollen is then used to cross-pollinate another female plant-producing seeds that can only grow into female plants. That’s because there is no male genetics involved anywhere in the breeding process.
Can a female plant produce seeds without a male?
If you are looking to create seeds from your female plants, either for breeding out to keep the genetic line, it is important to know if it is possible. A female plant can produce seeds without a male if a part of the plant is forced to create pollen using colloidal silver. This pollen can then pollinate the rest of the plant (or other females) to then grow seeds.
In addition, female plants can produce seeds without a male if they are ‘hermied out’. This term refers to plants transforming into hermaphrodites, or plants that are both male and female. Hermaphrodite plants often appear due to some type of stress. For instance, if your environment becomes too hot and stays too hot for too long, or, stresses like light cycle changes (due to no electricity or timer issues), cold temperatures, etc. can cause your female plants to hermie and produce seeds.
However making seeds from hermies means that there is a much higher chance of the offspring also showing hermie tendencies. This is bad news if you want high-quality, seed-free buds.
Do feminized seeds look different?
Unfortunately, there’s no reliable way to identify female seeds from male seeds by appearance alone.
What are the best feminized seeds?
The best feminized seeds will be those that produce high yields and high levels of cannabinoids, along with overall high-quality plants. These qualities tend to come from reliable, long-standing genetic lines that are produced by well-established breeders or seed banks.
What are the pros of feminized seeds?
While you might already suspect the advantages of feminized seeds, let’s review the exact pros you can expect:
Better Quality Plants
– Feminized seeds from MSNL are stable and are only made with high-quality genetic lines, proven for their strength and vigour.
– When sowing regular seeds, you run the risk of bringing a male plant into your crops, which could be contained in a small space. Doing so puts you at risk of pollinating your female plants and negatively affecting your entire harvest.
– When you grow female plants exclusively, you’re using the most of the space you have, rather than wasting area and resources on plants that don’t produce as high-quality results.
– Growing your own weed to avoid paying high prices for it takes time, effort, and labor. So, you’ll want the yields to be as bountiful as possible. When well cared for, with feminized seeds you’re guaranteed a female plant that produces its maximum number of flowers.
What are the cons of feminized seeds?
They don’t produce more seeds
– If you’re trying to breed your own marijuana strain, then you’re going to need pollen to make seeds. In that case, feminized seeds aren’t right for you since they’ll only produce female plants that don’t contain any pollen.
Can you use feminized seeds for a mother plant?
A mother plant refers to a female plant that’s kept in veg to continually take clones from. As soon as your feminized seeds produce a plant that’s large enough, you can take cuttings off of it and make those into a mother plant. Or, avoid photoperiod light cycles to keep it in veg to serve as a mother plant. It is entirely possible to use feminized seeds to grow a healthy adult plant that you can then use as a mother to take clones off.
However, some growers do believe mother plants should only come from a ‘true’ offspring that’s been made from a male and a female. With the idea that this lends to genetic stability and normality, because, down the line, the plant could be more susceptible to becoming hermaphroditic. Using high-quality feminized seeds from MSNL you will not have to worry about hermie tendencies as our fems are not from hermied parents.
What are feminized photoperiod seeds?
Outside of gender, there are two main classifications of seeds you can grow – autoflowering, and photoperiod. Autoflowering seeds that have been bred with ruderalis genetics, or that bloom automatically without the need for a change in the day/night light cycle.
Where to buy feminized cannabis seeds?
To buy female cannabis seeds, it’s best to find a seed bank you can trust. You’ll be relying on the fact that the cannabis seeds are feminized and not just labelled that way. MSNL, the original seed bank since 1999, is proud to offer long-standing strains and the latest up-and-coming strains from reliable breeders. Plus, all the growing guides and news you’ll need to succeed in growing weed from home. Check out the strains we have for sale now.

How to Choose the Best Feminized Seeds: Buying Guide
Effect and Potency
In case you’re wondering − yes, feminized seed strains are just as potent as regular seeds.
Like standard seeds, their potency also varies widely from one strain to another.
Therefore, to pick a feminized strain with the right potency for you, you should not only check the THC content (anything above 20% is considered potent) − but also whether the strain is 100% Indica or a hybrid.
Indeed, Indica strains are known for their “couch-lock” effect, whereas Sativas (even with higher THC) are generally more uplifting and boost creativity.
Before you buy marijuana seeds online , be sure to check the growing difficulty of the strain you’re eyeing.
While most feminized weed seeds on our list are easy to grow, some are better suited to experienced growers.
Additionally, auto-flowering seeds don’t even require a specific light cycle − which makes them much easier for indoor growing.
Smell & Taste
When it comes to pot seeds, plants come in all sizes and shapes.
While this section is pretty self-explanatory, it’s always good to take a quick look at the smell and aromas of a specific strain before buying cannabis seeds.
Size & Yield
High-quality seeds are popular for different reasons, and while some have an amazing taste, others just give humongous yields and huge THC content.
Therefore, you always have to find a compromise between the three. That said, the more experienced you become, the higher yields you’ll be able to get.
Value for Money
While we did everything to include the best feminized cannabis strains from reputable seed banks − we understand some of you may be on a tight budget.
If that’s the case, we strongly recommend looking for special deals on ILGM, which is known to offer Buy 10 Get 10 Free promos on popular strains.
Things to Know About Feminized Marijuana Seeds − FAQ
What Are Feminized Seeds?
Feminized seeds are bred to eliminate male chromosomes and produce only female cannabis seeds and plants.
Well, simply because buds are only present in female marijuana plants, and they are what smokers are searching for in a cannabis plant.
In other words, male plants don’t produce weed. At all.
Are Feminized Seeds Easy To Grow?
Yes, feminized seeds are easy to grow, because you don’t need to constantly watch them in case a male pollinates your females.
Besides, you also get around 50% extra space as there are no useless male seeds in the mix.
Are Feminized Seeds Better Than Regular Seeds?
Yes, feminized seeds are better than regular seeds because they have zero pollination risk and are easy to maintain.
On the downside, feminized strains cannot be used for breeding − which is why experienced, creative growers still prefer regular seeds.
Which Is Better: Autoflower or Feminized?
Autoflower strains are better than feminized strains if you’re a beginner and you don’t know much about growing cannabis indoors.
Because they don’t require any specific light cycle − in other words, they will give you nice buds with only a minimal setup, and just basic care.
Are Feminized Seeds Good?
Yes, feminized seeds are good! These seeds deliver high potency and are on par with regular seeds for use as mother plants to produce seeds.
Every type of seed has its pros and cons, but feminized marijuana seeds deliver the goods on many fronts.
Will Feminized Seeds Always Be Female?
Yes, feminized seeds will almost always be female, although there is no 100% guarantee. In rare cases, feminized cannabis seeds turn into male plants.
This is why experts advise checking your cannabis plants during growth and formation. If you notice a formation of pollen sacs, the best solution is to remove the cannabis plant before accidentally pollinating and ruining the female plants.
How To Determine If A Cannabis Seed Is Male Or Female?
Unfortunately, you can’t determine if a cannabis seed is male or female.
Once your seeds have turned to plants, however, you can check for pollen sacs that only male plants have.
What Are the Best Seed Banks for Feminized Seeds?
I Love Growing Marijuana (ILGM) is one of the best seed banks for feminized seeds, because of their germination guarantee, free shipping on all orders, and frequent Buy 10 Get 10 deals.
