When a cannabis plant is pollinated by a male cannabis flower, regular seeds are produced. Male pollen is normally released from flowering buds and blown by the strong wind (or taken by a knowledgeable hand) until it reaches the receptive stigma in female flowers. Female flowers then consume the pollen, producing an overall effect of cross-pollination in which one or more cannabis species is actually responsible for the pollination of all the flowering buds in a plant’s environment. Cross-pollination increases the probability of having distinct and often different, offspring.
Indica is the most common and potent of the cannabis strains with cross-pollination from indica and sativa being the most prolific. It was initially developed as a herbal remedy for those who suffered certain maladies such as nausea and vomiting. By the 1970s the cannabis cup market began to include strains that exhibited the potential for treating many different illnesses and this made the use of the herb highly desirable. However, the strain was often used as a way to produce a short-term high due to the fact that the resin-triggered release of the acids within the leaves of the cannabis plant is highly addictive and therefore highly sought after in the recreational user community.
cannabis indica seeds and sativa seeds are cross-bred, so the frequent cross-pollination that occurs throughout the developing plant is not possible, thus resulting in a specific genetic structure for each variety. This creates a highly resilient plant that will adapt very well to the outdoors in all types of weather conditions. The leaves and stems are strong and the plant has noticeable flowers that are easy to recognize.
indica and sativa seeds are used primarily in cooking and their flavor is much less powerful than that of regular seeds. The regular seeds are often used to produce higher-end culinary products, including cookies, brownies and hash brownies. Sativa seeds are often used as a source of caffeine in recreational drugs. They produce a strong but steady high upon inhalation. Many users also take regular seeds to help alleviate nausea after consuming large amounts of edibles or to help people cope with withdrawal symptoms after stopping smoking.
The ability to produce large quantities of buds makes it easier for growers to profit from small plots of land. These plots can then be sold to consumers who require the product for personal use or for selling on the black market. Some growers specialize in producing what are known as white widow crops. This produces a smaller amount of buds but they can produce an abundance of high-quality buds. These are typically used for ingestion or smoking by regular users who partake in highly Illegal Drug Sales across the country. Growers of cannabis genetics have to continue to develop strains that will produce high-quality white widow crops, which requires further research in the field.
A major concern among many consumers is finding the best strains of cannabis seeds that are consistent. In general, they are all going to produce a high amount of buds that are of the same size and shape. This can make it a challenge for inexperienced growers to distinguish their crops from others that might be grown at the same site. This is because the plants will all naturally look similar when they are picked, however, when taken outside and dried, they will begin to diverge. Many growers take the time to meticulously observe their crops and find what works the best for them and their customers.
The process of breeding autoflowering cannabis seeds is more complicated than breeding regular cannabis seeds. The plants will need to be picked often during their growing phase and the timing needs to be perfect to ensure that the crop will have consistent growth and flower. In addition, there are environmental considerations that must be taken into account such as harvesting at the right time of year in order to avoid frost and disease. This is why it is important to work with an experienced grower who can guide you through the process.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are available to be harvested frequently, so the flowering time for each variety is known ahead of time. This allows the grower to plan their time accordingly and limit the number of buds that will be produced. Some varieties will produce more than one flower throughout the flowering period of the plant. It is very common for people to harvest several different types at once, depending on the amount of cannabis they wish to grow indoors. The amount that is produced during flowering will be consistent throughout the growing season, so it will be up to the consumer to decide how much they wish to grow indoors.
