Regular cannabis seeds have about a fifty percent chance of appearing as females or males as nature intended. As such, frequent cannabis seeds are quite popular among breeders producing new cannabis strains. Regular cannabis seeds can be found in a variety of forms. These include the “cut,” “harp,” “smoker,” “clove,” “dust” and “joint” forms of cannabis.
The plant material used to develop the cannabis plant, called marijuana, contains a set of chromosomes which are referred to as the chromosomes of origin. Most of the marijuana plant material is male and a small number of chromosomes is female. When breeding for specific qualities desired by growers, regular seeds which have been feminized ones are used.
Cultivators of cannabis plants produce male and female plants from pollen and seed and then cultivate these seeds through pollination. When breeding for specific characteristics desired by the consumer, feminized seeds are produced. In most cases, feminized seeds are crossbred with native species, but breeders sometimes experiment with generating specific traits from non-native plants. In some cases, the resulting hybrid is referred to as a “weed” because it is not herbaceous.
Cultivating feminized cannabis seeds is much like breeding with male plants to create males. Except for the pollen glands, all parts of the plant are female. This allows for greater control over the flowering time of the plant and also allows for extended flower periods during which buds will begin to swell and blossom. This means that more buds are opened up to flower at any given time and the quality of the flowers increases.
There are some disadvantages to using cannabis seeds. One disadvantage is that producing feminized plants is more expensive than breeding a regular seed to produce a regular female. Since the process is more complicated, the final product will cost more than a regular plant and may not necessarily be as good. It also takes more care in the growing process and the plant may not reach its full potential in terms of potency.
Regular seeds contain all of the necessary information necessary for marijuana to grow. The chromosomes from which the plant derives its genetic code are consistent regardless of the gender of the plant. Creating something that has the potential to become illegal requires using genetics that can’t always be tracked back to the original source. This makes regular seeds the first choice for many breeders. They provide controlled breeding that ensures that the plant stays true to the genetic instructions.
Cultivation of the autoflowering cannabis strains is the most difficult part of the breeding process. Many of the top researchers have created hybrid strains that are extremely difficult to cultivate. Some of these strains have even produced plants with high levels of resistance to outside diseases. However, creating the ideal conditions for marijuana cultivation is still difficult, making it difficult to get high-quality results. If an experiment doesn’t work, it is a challenge just to create another version that will.
Autoflowering cannabis strains are also most commonly used for producing high CBD varieties of medication. People who suffer from seizures find relief by combining this medicine with the high-cbd varieties. While high CBD varieties are not available without regular seeds, those who do have access are highly unlikely to notice a difference in their symptoms. When the regular seeds are mixed into regular genetics made with high-cbd, the effect is much like reducing the strength of the medication to make it easier to use. The high-cbd varieties may also be useful for combating inflammation and other ailments that can occur in the body.
