What is the difference between feminized and regular seeds?
Regular seeds are the usual cannabis variety. In order for marijuana experts to set them apart from the “feminized” ones, they classified them as “regular” seed varieties.
Feminized seed are made to guarantee female strains. A lot of growers believe this is a more convenient way to determine the gender of the plant, eliminating the risk of the male plant variety fertilizing the female strains.
Regular marijuana seeds can develop into either female or male plants. There is a 50/50 ratio for this to happen. This is the reason why the regular seeds are packed and sold in 10’s whereas the feminised ones are usually sold in packs of 5. In the end, you will be able to grow the same number of female plants. Additionally, regular seeds have been proven to be more stable than the other type. If the feminised seeds are stressed from light leaks during the process or exposed to too much cold or heat, they may also produce male and female flowers.
It is always the growers’ choice whether they prefer to buy the feminised or the regular seeds. This would depend on their growing area and experienc.
