Regular seeds are the way cannabis emerged in nature. They have a 50% chance of producing male plants, which growers remove from their gardens because a single male plant can pollinate an entire crop and ruin their harvest.
Nevertheless, for gardeners who like to create their own strains by crossing plants with desirable traits, regular seed is essential. They’re also easier to breed.
They are cheaper
Regular seeds offer a variety of advantages for cultivation. They are cheaper than feminized or autoflowering seeds and offer better genetic diversity. They are also easy to breed, which allows growers to create their own cultivars. These benefits make regular seed an excellent choice for growers who want to get the most out of their plants.
Feminized and autoflowering seeds require more extensive breeding work than regular seeds, which reflects in their price. These factors, combined with the popularity of a particular strain, can affect seed prices.
The SSSC regular seed collection is curated with the best parent genetics, providing growers with the highest-quality cannabis seeds. This collection includes Dutch Passion regular seeds, which have been carefully bred for decades. These regular seeds are perfect for those looking to avoid the hassle of sexing and produce seedless buds. Their citrus flavors will awaken your senses and delight your palate. Their high THC content will give you a cerebral buzz that soothes the mind and body.
They are easier to grow
Unlike feminized seeds that guarantee female plants, regular seed produces both male and female plants. This means that growers must identify and remove male plants to prevent them from pollinating the female plants. This can be time consuming and requires expertise, but it is worth the effort to preserve desirable genetic traits.
Alternatively, breeders can create hybrids using the best male and female plants. This allows them to select the desired traits and produce new strains that are suited to their growing environment and personal preferences. Moreover, hybrids are more cost-effective than feminized seeds.
When it comes to growing, regular seeds provide a more natural experience. Instead of using feminized seeds, growers can cultivate their own plants from cuttings and harvest the best specimens to produce quality buds. This method also provides a higher yield and more consistent results than feminized seeds. Moreover, it reduces the need for chemicals that can damage the plant and harm the consumer.
They are more stable
Regular seeds provide greater genetic stability for those who wish to create new strains or take healthy clones. They also produce a heavy yield for the first harvest and are good for combining with other strains to create hybrids. The resulting plants are stronger and more potent than those grown from feminized seeds.
Unlike feminized seeds, which guarantee female plants, regular seeds may produce both male and female cannabis plants. This makes identifying and removing the males a bit more challenging, but is easy with proper observation and knowledge.
This is important because pollinated buds are less potent and have a harsher smoke than non-pollinated ones. The grower can easily solve this issue by separating the male plants and applying pollen to the females at an early stage in the flowering process. This way, the resulting offspring will be pure and strong. This is why regular seed is still popular among hobbyists who wish to breed their own strains of cannabis.
They are easier to breed
Regular seed gives growers the option to breed their plants and create new strains. This is possible because non-feminized seeds can produce both male and female plants that produce pollen. This makes them ideal for those who want to experiment with crossbreeding. In fact, some of the best strains were originally bred from regular seeds and have remained that way through many generations.
However, growing regular seeds requires more work because it takes more time to weed out the male plants. This can be frustrating for novice growers and breeders who prefer to work with only female plants. But, with patience and good observation skills, sexing plants becomes easier with practice. SSSC’s regular cannabis seeds are a great choice for old-school growers who want to cultivate a wide variety of strains. They offer a selection of some of the finest original 1980’s varieties that haven’t been feminized. As a result, the regular seeds will produce both male and female plants that are worth keeping.
