Regular Seed Vs Feminized Seed

regular seed

Regular seeds produce both male and female plants, although they have a much smaller chance of becoming hermaphrodites than feminized seed. However, growers must be careful to eliminate male plants early and focus their energy on the desired crop.

Many growers ask why Sensi Seeds continues to offer regular seed despite the popularity of feminized strains. Here are a few reasons we believe that regular seed is still worth growing:

Stable Genetics

Stable cannabis seeds provide growers with genetics that display a predictable level of consistency in terms of phenotype characteristics. These characteristics can include potency, flowering time, and flavour profile. Stable strains are popular among commercial growers and breeders who want to reproduce their cultivars with the same results every grow.

Breeding stable marijuana strains requires a lot of patience and careful selection. To produce stable strains, breeders first select string and healthy mother plants with the traits they seek in a new cultivar. These mother plants are then crossed with a male that displays the desired traits in order to create a F1 hybrid.

The F1 hybrids are then inbred with each other in a process known as backcrossing to create an F2 generation. This process is very labour intensive and can take up to 12 generations to achieve robust stability. The breeding cycle continues to produce the desired results until the strain is considered stable.


While the relatively recent developments of feminized and autoflowering seeds have their advantages, regular seed is still the choice of many experienced growers. When pheno hunting, working with regular seeds is the best way to get a large selection of plants that are genetically intact and worth keeping in your garden. Every plant will differ in growth pattern, development of leaves and stems, aroma, yield, resistance to pests, terpene profile, THC/CBD ratio, and more.

Using regular seeds for breeding can take a lot of time and effort to produce stable offspring, but it is well worth the investment. And since you don’t have to worry about identifying and removing males, cultivating regular seeds is much easier than with feminized or autoflowering seeds.

Less Risk of Male Blooms

Regular cannabis seeds operate exactly how nature intended, meaning there is a 50% chance that each plant will be either male or female. This may seem like a gamble, but weed breeders appreciate the fact that working with regular seed allows them to create the ultimate mother plants that will produce superior clones.

The only downside is that growers will need to spend more time sexing their plants and eliminating male blooms before they flower, which can be tedious. However, if growers fail to eliminate the male flowers, the pollen will pollinate their female plants and result in far lower yields than would otherwise be possible.

This is especially true if the grower stresses their plant with techniques such as topping, fimming, or lollypopping. These stressors can lead to the plant becoming hermaphrodite and producing male flowers that will eventually pollinate the female plants and reduce overall yields. However, this risk is significantly lessened with feminized seeds.

Genetic Diversity

Regular seeds contain both male and female chromosomes (XX) so they can produce either male or female flowers. Feminized seed only contains female chromosomes and will only produce female plants, whereas regular seeds can produce either a hermaphrodite or male plant.

QTL analysis for seed weight and seed number per fruit identifies eight QTL spread across chromosomes 1–5, with the largest one explaining 15% of variation. There is no significant correlation between seed size and seed number per fruit, suggesting that the traits are controlled by independent genetic factors.

Within-site average pairwise Euclidean distance matrices for the MAGIC lines were used to estimate genetic diversity, as this metric is straightforward, requires minimal assumptions and has demonstrated good agreement with more complex metrics. The data demonstrate that, for both H. sericea and H. teretifolia, seedling subsamples at site PT were essentially isogenic and sampling from additional mother plants did not increase genetic diversity. However, seedling subsamples at sites CR and SP exhibited greater genetic diversity when sampling from two or four maternal lines.

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.
