Regular Seeds Vs Feminized Seeds

regular seeds

Before feminized seeds emerged regular seeds were the only option for growers. They give rise to roughly 50% male and 50% female offspring.

This means that a few of your plants will be male and will reduce the yield of your crop. Luckily, there are several ways to overcome this.

Stable Genetics

Regular seeds enable growers to take cuttings/clones (asexual reproduction) from plants that express desirable phenotypes such as colour, terpene profiles and growth patterns. While this requires extra work on the part of the grower (weeding out male plants), it is often worth it in terms of quality of harvest and genetic preservation.

Stabilising a strain through plant breeding is a lengthy process that requires patience, capital and time to grow several generations of plants to ensure their genetic stability. Once stable, breeders can then create seed varieties that are uniform in growth, flowering and psychoactive properties. They can also use backcrossing to further stabilise a particular trait by crossing a hybrid of an existing parent with its stable clone and then repeating this process. Examples of this include Apollo 13Bx (TGA Subcool) and Tropimango (Philosopher Seeds). Stabilised strains can then be patented by seed companies and licensed to other growers. This is known as agritech.

No Genetic Modification

If you’re looking for a completely organic growing experience, regular seeds are the way to go. Unlike feminized or autoflowering cannabis seeds, regular seeds have not been genetically modified in any way. They also don’t require a change in the light cycle to shift from vegetation to flowering, like some strains of ruderalis that are used to create feminized seeds.

While feminized cannabis seeds have become increasingly popular, there are still plenty of growers who prefer working with regular seeds. They’re more natural and offer a wider range of possibilities for breeding and discovery.

Typically, a batch of regular seeds will produce a mix of male and female plants. This is what has always happened when cultivating weed with seeds, and is the way that most cannabis has been cultivated for centuries. With a mix of male and female plants, growers can select the strongest, most productive flowers for further breeding. They can also try out blending opposing terpene profiles to create unique cultivars.

Unaltered Plants

While feminized seeds are the preferred option of many growers, regular cannabis seeds still have a significant part of the market. They are the perfect choice for professional breeders who work with a large number of plants to create new strains. As regular seeds produce both male and female plants, they can be used to pollinate hermaphrodite plants to create a wide range of hybrids.

This type of breeding requires a great deal of patience and care. However, it offers the potential to create a completely unique and potent cultivar.

If you choose to use regular seeds, you will need to ensure that all of your plants are female before they flower. This will require a great deal of monitoring and removal of any male plants that develop. This is impractical for a large crop as it will mean wasting some of your growing space, nutrients and light. It is also less efficient than using a feminized seed, as you will have to wait until the plant is fully mature before starting the sexing process.

Lower Price

Some growers choose to work with regular seeds from a financial perspective. If you are a breeder who works with male plants, and collecting their pollen, in order to make cross seeds, the process will be cheaper and more reliable using regular seeds.

Regular seed strains are also preferred by some traditional gardeners who dislike the idea of their crop being feminised. In fact, many old school cultivars that existed prior to the feminisation of cannabis seeds still exist as regular seeds and are very popular with experienced gardeners.

Growing a large number of regular seeds and working through them to find the best mother plant for your next crop is an enjoyable challenge for some. This is often cheaper than a similar sized purchase of feminised seeds and the expense associated with removing 40% of your crop after sexing it. This equates to wasted hydro system space, nutrients and light. It is a cost that can add up when doing a large pheno hunt.

Rastafarianism is an African religion and there is a great deal of people in the world that follow its teachings. In fact, there are even people that have embraced the lifestyle that is closely associated with Rastafarianism in the past such as musician and entertainer Bob Marley and Rastafarian clothing designer Larry Lloyd.

As the name implies, the Rastafarian lifestyle includes wearing clothes and accessories that are made out of beads, feathers, and other natural materials. The clothing in the Rastafarian tradition often includes animal skin, such as a horse's hide. The hair of the Rastafarian man is also usually long.

The lifestyle of Rastafarians is largely based on traditional ways of living in their native countries, as well as the African traditions and rituals that are passed down. Rastafarians have a great deal of respect for the animals that are part of their diet. Most people that follow this type of lifestyle believe that they have a direct link to the animals that they eat. In fact, in some cases, the animals may be eaten during the ceremony that follows the ceremony.

In addition to having a great deal of respect for the animals, Rastafarians also have a great deal of respect for their hobbies and pastimes. They often dress in clothes that are similar to that of the animals that they eat. Rastafarians also have a great deal of respect for the clothing that they wear and the clothing that is used to decorate their home. The color of the clothing and accessories that are worn by Rastafarians is often very similar to that of the animals that they eat.

Although Rastafarians follow a lifestyle that is based on a natural way of life, some of them do have to be in the workplace. For example, many Rastafarians work as musicians or entertainers. In order to do so, the musician may have to give up some of his or her time in order to become successful. In addition, some musicians choose to work for other musicians, such as Bob Marley and the Wailers. However, other musicians choose to work for themselves, like Bob Marley.

Although the Rastafarian lifestyle is different from that of other people, the Rastafarian lifestyle is also a life of peace and harmony. The Rastafarian people live a simple life where they eat animal meat, live in their own homes, and do not engage in much of the materialistic activities of society.
