What is Cannabis Seeds

When deciding to buy cannabis seeds, choosing the best source is the most important decision a grower makes. While good growing conditions are important, the genetic makeup contained within the seed is the determining factor behind a plant reaching its full potential, whether indoor or outdoor. The genes contained in selectively bred cannabis seeds are the key to a successful crop. Sensi Seeds maintains an extensive and unique collection of cannabis genotypes, making the very best seeds, whether regular, feminized or auto-flowering, available for purchase.

A wide selection of high quality cannabis seeds

Achieve the best possible start by choosing from the wide selection listed here. It includes those used for prescription medicinal cannabis in the Netherlands, as well as many of the most famous and distinctive hybrids in the world. A considerable number of varieties from Sensi Seeds and sister concern The White Label Seed Company have won prizes in international competitions. The true sign of quality, however, is in how many satisfied customers return time and again to buy our seeds, knowing that not only the strain genetics but also the attention to customer service, discreet shipping and professional aftercare are absolute priorities.

From beginners to cannabis experts

All levels of expertise are catered for, whether one has a lifetime of growing experience or is a complete novice armed only with enthusiasm. In either situation, genetics are often the deciding factor in the eventual outcome.

The website category filters enable visitors to easily discover which types are most suitable for their experience level. There is even a selection tailored especially for beginners, featuring the easiest to grow options, many of which are also very affordable. Pack sizes from three up to twenty five seeds per pack for most types is also economically helpful.

Other filters include flowering time, yield, and climate. Advice on everything from germination through cultivation, flowering and harvest can also be found on the Sensi forum, where visitors can share their experiences and ideas. Sensi Seeds aims to also cultivate a cannabis community!

Ten Interesting Facts About Cannabis Seeds

  • There is no visible difference between regular, feminized, or autoflowering cannabis seeds, indica or sativa seeds, and seeds for growing industrial hemp. For this reason, always buy from a reputable seed bank to be assured of authenticity.
  • Most marijuana seeds are around the size of a match-head, but can vary by variety from not much larger than a tomato seed to as big as a small pea. This is not an indication of the size or health of the cannabis plant that will grow from it. Often – but not always – the seeds of sativa plants are smaller than those of indica types.
  • Marijuana seeds contain a near-perfect balance of the essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6 and 9. These are vital to human health and cannot be produced by the body. It is better to eat seeds of hemp rather than cannabis as the former are a lot cheaper, and there is no difference in the EFA content – just the THC content of the plants they produce.
    The oldest known cannabis seeds are 2,700 years old and were found in 2007 in a grave in China. Ancient cannabis bud which would have produced THC, CBD and other cannabinoids, has also been discovered.
  • A single plant can yield hundreds and even over 1000 seeds depending on its size and the efficiency of pollination during flowering. Some hemp strains are bred to enhance this production for when seeds are the primary crop.
  • The best temperature to store your seeds is 5 – 7 degrees centigrade, which is usually the temperature of the door in a domestic refrigerator, handily enough. They should also be kept perfectly dry to avoid both mould and premature germination.
  • In many countries, the possession of cannabis seeds is legal whereas growing them is harshly punished. Many people are forced to buy and preserve their seeds as collectors’ items.
  • Hemp seeds were taken on long sea voyages during the Dutch Golden Age of naval exploration. If stranded, the sailors could use some of the seeds as a nourishing food source and plant the rest, relying on the rapid growth and multiple uses of hemp to fix their ships.
  • Hemp seeds were used in religious rites by the Scythians, the ancient race which gave their name to the scythe thanks to their use of these curve-bladed tools to reap their crops, including hemp.
  • Hemp seeds are a common ingredient in bird food, and there is a urban legend in the UK of someone – usually a grandmother – emptying the bird food bowl at the bottom of the garden and later being arrested for the bushes they were unwittingly growing from their “weed seeds”.

Feminized Seeds

Feminized cannabis seeds are bred to contain no male chromosomes, thus ensuring that every plant grown from them will flower as a female and be able to produce the crop of resinous buds sought by most growers.

Why choose feminized seeds?

For gardeners who require a quick and easy growing and flowering process, these seeds are the ideal choice. Some medicinal cannabis users may be deterred from cultivating their own supply because of the perceived difficulty of growing, or of identifying the different sexes and removing males early in the blooming period. If this process is too long delayed,

the males will fertilize the females, leading to a disappointing harvest of seeded bud with a lower amount of trichomes. Just one male plant is capable of fertilizing a large number of ladies. This is the last thing that most gardeners desire, especially those growing for medicinal reasons. Feminized, or ‘fem’, varieties offer a simple solution to these issues, as there is no

need to spend time during their first days in flower checking for males, nor energy removing and destroying them once they are identified.

What are feminized seeds?

People who are new to the world of indica and sativa may also have only a vague idea that there are different sexes of this

versatile plant. Seeds that occur naturally are gained from simply allowing a male to fertilize a female, and the resulting seeds will in turn produce both masculine and feminine offspring. There is no reliable way of telling which one will grow into which sex of plant, short of actually growing them. It is therefore traditional to germinate more regular seeds than one intends to grow (often twice as many) to allow for the removal of males. With feminized seeds, gardeners decide how many bushes they want, germinate that number of seeds, then simply grow, flower and reap their rewards. With the introduction of these new cannabis seeds, cultivation became easier than ever before!

How is it possible to create feminized seeds?

Every cannabis plant has the innate ability to grow the reproductive organs of the opposite sex as a survival mechanism. This ability, which is not unique to cannabis in the plant kingdom and has even been observed in some species of frogs, is one of the factors that enabled it to successfully proliferate in climates all around the world, adapting and surviving even in hostile conditions. It is not unknown for male plants to produce feminine flowers, making it possible for the plant to self-pollinate, produce seeds and ensure the survival of the species for another generation. However it is far more common for a female plant to     produce male flowers for the same purpose. This fantastic survival trait is not only useful for the plant, but has now been turned to the advantage of people who wish to grow it.

Rather than being produced from male spore meeting female flower, feminized seeds are the result of forcing a female plant to produce pollen and then using this to fertilize another female. The resulting seeds lack male chromosomes, so when they are grown out, each plant will produce female flowers and growth characteristics. It is important to note that when this technique was in its infancy, a breed chosen to create male pollen usually had a genetic background that was prone to produce hermaphrodites anyway. These were easier to trigger into growing the distinctive banana-shaped male reproductive organs. Unfortunately they could also pass on their marked hermaphrodite tendencies to their offspring. Nowadays, significant advances in feminized cannabis seed breeding has solved this problem with new techniques for coaxing even the most reluctantly hermaphroditic variety into a yield of the fertile yellow dust.

Feminized seeds or female seeds?

It should be noted that seeds in this category are technically not female seeds, as the biological definition rests on them having a full complement of genetics. Some seedbanks declare that they stock ‘100% female’ seeds, but we consider this to be both scientifically inaccurate, and misleading, since they are not truly female. It is also for this reason they are seldom recommended as a good source for a mother plant. The process by which mothers have their life-cycle prolonged, and the constant low-grade stress caused by removing cuttings, is best withstood by regular females which are more resilient when kept under these conditions. Crossing naturally male cannabis plants with feminized ones should result in a yield of seed-bearing flowers, but the resulting offspring will have the same roughly 55% feminine, 45% masculine ratio as seeds created in the regular way, and there is no real advantage to doing this. However, there is little difference in aroma, flavour, resin production, THC level, THC to CBD ratio and so on, between a regular and ‘fem’ variety.

This category collects every feminized seed-strain available from the White Label Seed Company and Sensi Seeds. The filters can be used to easily view them according to the size of yield, flowering time, height gain, price, indica, sativa or hybrid content, indoor or outdoor growth suitability, whether it has won a cannabis cup, and so forth. Some of the most famous names, such as White Widow, Master Kush and different types of Skunk and Haze, can be found here.

 

Autoflowering Seeds

Autoflowering cannabis seeds provide an easy harvest of high quality cannabis that can flower without the need to change light cycles or remove males. For these reasons they are also known as Automatic seeds, since much of the work of achieving a crop of unfertilized female flowers has been done before they are even germinated. The simplicity of autoflowering cultivation makes it a highly appealing option for many novice growers. In addition, these strains are a great choice for gardeners in less warm climate areas who wish to grow on open ground, or on a balcony or window ledge, but find themselves restricted by short summers.

The advantages of automatic cannabis seeds

Grown outside, automatic seeds can produce two or more crops in the course of a normal summer. Under lights, ‘autos’ can go from seedling to fully mature plant in as little as 10 weeks. As an added bonus, most are also very hardy and resistant to fungal infections, mould, pests and even frost, due to their extremely robust, northern Eurasian genetic lineage – the Ruderalis – that evolved the ability to flower at will in order to survive. Seeds that automatically flower can be grown indoors, out of doors or in a greenhouse. In addition, all seeds in this category are feminized and from a wide range of genetics, offering different kinds of flavour, aroma and effect.

Yield factors for autoflowering seed strains

In terms of turnover, these seeds are capable of producing reasonably sized yields even with a less intense light source. However, the general rule that the greater the light intensity, the better the results, holds true here too. It should also be remembered that how much these types will give is governed by the final size of the plant – a windowsill crop of virtually dwarf cannabis is never going to produce as much as it would in large pots under high-intensity light. In general, however, the amount of bud eventually gleaned from seeds in this section is favourably comparable with that of regular or feminized seeds from the same variety.

Higher THC levels

This is the first group of varieties to produce superior bud featuring elevated cannabinoid levels without the need for intense light during set, consistent periods of time. Whether using artificial light or sunlight, care and attention was always required in matters of timing the plants’ exposure to it, and ensuring that the hours of darkness really were dark. Light pollution from even minor sources has been known to confuse their internal ‘clocks’ as to whether they are supposed to be vegetating or blooming.

Autoflowering seeds, on the other hand, are able to complete their life cycle regardless of how long the days are, although at least eighteen hours of light will give the best results. Unlike regular seeds, ‘auto’ seeds grow crops that do not need to undergo the usual cycle of 12 hours of light alternating with 12 hours of darkness in order to bloom successfully, whether they are indica, sativa or hybrid. They seem virtually immune to light pollution, tolerating irregular and unpredictable periods of light and darkness with impunity. Outdoor gardeners with short summers can wait until the warmest weeks to cultivate their automatic cannabis seed crop, safe in the knowledge that most of these hours will fuel the flower production, not the vegetation, period.

 

How is cannabis able to flower automatically?

This essential characteristic evolved as a necessity for survival in the harsh, inhospitable areas of central Russia where Cannabis Ruderalis, the original autoflowering strain that bred this almost magical ability, originated. Lacking the longer, warmer summers of the Indian continent or the tropical and equatorial zones where (respectively) Indica and Sativa evolved, their relative did not have the luxury of being able to wait for the change in light cycles that signal the beginning of summer to start flowering – the weather would become cold enough to kill the plants before pollination and seeding could take place. Instead, it had to begin flowering as soon as it was old enough in order to have enough time to complete the reproductive cycle and make new seeds. Breeders immediately saw the advantage of this for other strains, and began breeding seeds with this ability to ‘auto flower’.

Ideal for beginners

Complete novices to the art of gardening who wish to start with cannabis as their first attempt are advised to consider the benefits of autoflowering seeds. The filters can be used to easily view them according to the yield, flowering time, height gain, price, indica or sativa dominance, and so forth. Seeds are available in 5 and 10 seeds per pack sizes, and some kinds can also be bought in 3 per pack and 25 per pack sizes.
