Finding Genetics For Your Plants
Of course, purchasing cannabis seed is no simpler than buying a packet of standard marigold or tomato seeds. It can take weeks, even months, to locate the perfect seed that will produce the desired plant. However, quality cannabis seed is hard to find, expensive and can produce unwelcome uninvited male plants come flowering time.
So how do you get access to high-quality cannabis seeds? You could buy from an underground cannabis seed dealer. Some of these people may have exclusive rights to supply you with a specific cannabis seed recipe. These dealers can also tell you where they source their products, so there’s no question of artificial sources influencing the colour, taste and strength of the end product.
Other growers buy cannabis seed from companies who specialise in it. For example, Green Mountain grows only their own genetics. While other growers buy from seed catalogues from various companies that they know have exclusive rights to supply the cannabis plant with essential traits. They will usually only be allowed to source a limited amount of certain characteristics, but the buyer can be rest assured that they are getting an uncontrived product.
Many female plants are kept by breeders for the sole purpose of producing large numbers of uninvited seeds. The process for feminizing cannabis seed is very simple. When a female cannabis plant is removed during the process of pollination, the male plant will continue to produce pollen. This pollen contains the necessary traits to make it reproduce itself and attract the needed bees.
Popular cannabis seeds used for feminization include Brandywine hemp seed, Canada black (canola), Cannabonghi and Lemon Datura. All of these plants are plant-based, meaning they grow natively in regions where cannabis is grown, such as Canada, the United States or Mexico. While each of these plants may be feminized through cross-breeding, it is more likely that the feminization process occurs when a plant-based hybrid is crossbred with an animal-based hybrid. For instance, Brandywine hemp seeds and Brandywine canola are often crossing to create Brandywine cannabis seeds.
There are many reasons why farmers choose to use these hybrid plants to produce cannabis plants. One reason is that it is more cost-effective than starting a new plant-based farm from scratch, especially in today’s economy. Many farmers who grow cannabis and marijuana plants do so because it is cheaper and allows for greater profit margins. By breeding two weed clones, two weed seeds and one hybrid plant, the resulting plant will often have all the necessary traits to produce its own crops.
When trying to decide which seeds you want to use to transform your plants into marijuana buds, keep in mind the type of crop you’re attempting to grow. Not all plants can grow with certain strains of cannabis seeds, so it is important to research the potential plants before you begin collecting the seeds. Some types of cannabis are hardier than others, making them less desirable for some marijuana strains. The most popular types of cannabis seeds used to produce feminized plants are African Violets and Croatian Pineapple. These are considered to be feminized through hybridization through crossbreeding with male plants.
Before starting your collection of cannabis seeds, be sure to research the genetics of the plants you are planning to harvest. If you collect seeds from a reputable breeder, they will be able to provide you with quality genetics. Remember to check with your local seed nursery to ensure they have the types of cannabis seeds you are looking for. Also, be sure to buy only from a reputable retailer. While buying in bulk can save you money on the purchase price, it may also end up costing you more by having to deal with re-selling products at retail costs. Good luck growing!
