Feminized seeds vs regular seeds

In the beginning of Sensi Seeds, and therefore the European cannabis seed industry, a seed was a seed. Now, we use the name ‘regular cannabis seeds’ to distinguish the originals from feminized cannabis seeds and autoflowering cannabis seeds. Both of these types are relatively recent developments when you consider that cannabis has been cultivated by humans for thousands of years.

Danich Delight with thc 21-24% and 1-2% cbd is my favorite for +30 years, , Sativa dominant,, Would be nice to se this strain in a compatition with Northeren Light, in grow , yield and thc/cbd.. give it a try and you would be suprised.. Or Libanon wich is growing well in Denmark.. and 5-6 other strains..
If you wanth pictures for late summer/autum let med know..
From a crop grown from regular cannabis seeds, the best female plants are selected to become ‘mothers’ – so called because with loving care, they can produce potentially hundreds of ‘children’ over the space of several years. The clones that are taken from these mother plants are tiny replicas down to the last scrap of genetic material – including their female sex.

The short answer is, you can try. There’s no reason you shouldn’t attempt to breed, or create a mother plant, using feminized cannabis seeds. However, it’s our firm belief that these practices are more likely to succeed using plants grown from regular cannabis seeds.
If you need any strains wich is well adaptet for Scandinavian clima, I have some strains form back in 1980`tees or earlyer, please let me know.. I would love to se `my` strains in your shop, for the bennefit off growers i `Cold` clima..
Regular cannabis seeds are produced when a male cannabis plant pollinates a female cannabis plant. Male pollen is released from ripe pollen sacs and blown by the wind (or carried by the careful hand of a breeder) until it finds the receptive stigmas in female flowers. Pollination results in hundreds, if not thousands, more regular cannabis seeds which will all in turn produce either male or female cannabis plants.

  1. The first is breeding. Selective crossings of one cultivar with another has been taking place since the earliest days of agriculture, with all types of plant life. Sometimes this is to maximise the yield of whatever crop the plant produces which is desired by the people growing it; sometimes it’s just for fun and experimentation.

There are two main purposes for regular cannabis seeds, aside from the usual and most common one of simply growing buds.

The overall answer is simple, and one which anyone familiar with Sensi Seeds will probably have heard before: we want to bring the joy of cannabis to as many people as possible. That’s not limited to simply selling seeds.

The difference between regular, feminized and autoflowering cannabis seeds is more than skin deep, and regular cannabis seeds lend themselves to all kinds of fun for growers who want to experiment. Discover what Sensi Seeds original varieties could bring to you!

Feminized seeds vs regular seeds

These days with the interweb I think you can learn to grow overnight but it still takes a lifetime to become an expert
Currently I have two forms of Peyote Purple. One reg and one fem. The reg measures 22% THC and the fem 17%. Seen this other times with strains like OG Kush and Chem crosses in simple smoke tests where the regs hit harder and smell was louder than them fem. Found Sensi Star to be a fantastic strain as a reg but it’s fem version is a shadow of itself. There’s only been a handful of times where I could directly compare but when I could, the comparison favored the reg.

Personally I can do without the seeds
It’s personal preference I guess

There is no way of identifying a plant without knowing it’s lineage. Even then it’s only as good as it’s source.
Then there are IBL’s= Inbred line, which is a re affirmation of the genetics, inbreeding in plants in order to isolate a certain trait or traits.
this may help to understand, it is lengthy, still breeding your own seeds can save thousands of dollars.
I still buy regular seeds.
Some growers like myself just prefer regular seeds vs fems for the possibility of using the males for breeding and to get a closer resembelence of what the breeder was going for when creating the hybrid. With F1 seeds you get hybrid vigor which can increase the yield and stress tolerance. The method used to create feminized seeds is to artificially introduce stress in order to make the plant produce male pollen sacs. However even though the genetics are 99% of the mother plant i have still found some slight variance among the progeny. However there are upsides to feminized seeds which for most outweigh the downside.

I prefer clones myself. I’ve kept strains alive with mothers for years. Also potbound plants will basically go dormant, they just require water every few days.

Why do people buy regular seeds with possible ratio of males? Is there an advantage to this for the buyer or easier/more of profit for seller? New to the…
