Regular Seeds are seeds which have not been feminized. They may be a cross of a variety of other strains. These can then be fused together to create new strains.
Feminized vs non-feminized seeds
Feminized seeds are becoming more and more popular. They are a great way to avoid the hassle of taming males and saving you a lot of time, money and frustration. If you are looking for a simple, convenient, and fast ride to big yields, feminized marijuana seeds are the way to go.
Some seed companies have jumped on the feminized bandwagon, while others have not. In most cases, you will not see a significant difference between a regular and a feminized strain. That said, a feminized plant can outperform a standard clone in a number of ways.
Feminized seeds come in two varieties: photoperiod and autoflowering. Photoperiod seeds grow vegetatively under 18 hours of daily light, producing leaves and branches. Once the light cycle is reduced to 12 hours, these seeds transition from vegetative to flowering phase.
Autoflowering seeds are a bit different. While these plants begin flowering after a predetermined amount of time, they do not undergo any change in the light cycle. This makes them perfect for beginners and less experienced growers.
Common strains of regular seeds
Regular seeds are the most common type of cannabis seed. They are the result of a natural cross between two plants of the same species. There are many different varieties of regular seeds, and they offer the opportunity to grow and breed your own strains.
For beginners, it’s a better idea to use feminized seeds. Feminized seeds are designed to make cultivation easier. Unlike regular seeds, feminized seeds only produce female plants. This minimizes the chances of males in the growing room. You will also not have to worry about weeding out your male plants.
If you want to grow your own cannabis plants, choosing the right seeds is a vital part of the process. Aside from the quality of the seeds, you’ll also need to consider how you’ll manage your indoor and outdoor growing conditions.
The Genetic Lottery is a book written by behavior geneticist Kathryn Paige Harden. The book is an attempt to demonstrate how behavioral genes affect our lives. But, as is often the case with genetic research, the results are often misunderstood. A lot of people do not realize that genetics play a big part in societal inequalities.
In the book, Harden explores the history of the field of genetics, including how the progenitors of statistics believed in deep hierarchies that amounted to oppression. She also discusses how the statistics and research from them have been weaponized. Her theory is that by ignoring genetic differences, we hinder the progress of science and social development.
Harden’s approach is akin to means testing social welfare with genetic data. Her method of calculating the fitness of a patch of cells is similar to the way we currently use genetics to determine what kind of healthcare system we should implement. However, she does not discuss the importance of implementing universal social programs, which she believes will accomplish her anti-eugenic goal.
