Cannabis seeds are available in four primary categories: regular, feminized, autoflowering, and CBD. Each type features its own unique advantages and disadvantages and appeals to different cultivators depending on their goals. If you’re looking to enter the world of breeding—or perhaps you want genetically sturdy clones—then regular seeds are the way to go. You’ll want to start off with feminized seeds if your only aim is a canopy full of colas. These seeds minimise the chances of a male turning up in the growing room.

If you want to harvest in as little time as possible, autoflowering seeds fit the bill. CBD strains offer a wide range of benefits and provide a clear-headed effect without a high. Let’s take a dive into each of these four types of cannabis seeds. We’ll explore the pros and cons of each variety, whether they’re right for you, and the best strains in each category. Regular cannabis seeds have a 50% chance of emerging as either males or females —just as nature intended. Because they produce males, regular seeds are popular among breeders creating new strains. Males produce pollen that breeders use to fertilise female flowers, creating the next generation of seeds. Regular seeds are available in many different forms.

You’ll find indica-dominant, sativa-dominant, high-THC, and high-CBD varieties. PROS CONS Required for breeding and creating new strains Can be unpredictable; germinating seeds is a gamble regarding sex Even chance of producing male and female plants Visual perception motor disabilities Produce vigorous cuttings ideal for making healthy clones Accidental males in the grow room can lead to the fertilisation of flowers Breeders can create a pollen bank using male plants Requires growers to set up separate grow tents or greenhouses for male and female plants Wide variety of different strains available—both classic and modern genetics - PROS CONS Required for breeding and creating new strains Can be unpredictable; germinating seeds is a gamble regarding sex Even chance of producing male and female plants Visual perception motor disabilities Produce vigorous cuttings ideal for making healthy clones Accidental males in the grow room can lead to the fertilisation of flowers Breeders can create a pollen bank using male plants Requires growers to set up separate grow tents or greenhouses for male and female plants Wide variety of different strains available—both classic and modern genetics - HOW ARE REGULAR GENETICS MADE? They are the result of how cannabis emerged in nature. Purebred regular genetics stem all the way back to landrace ancestors found all over the world, from the mountains of India to the beaches of Jamaica. Breeders have also created regular hybrids by combining the genetics of two different subspecies. This results in a progeny that expresses the traits of both parent strains. If you want an even mix of male and female plants, then regular cannabis seeds are for you. Having both sexes at your disposal will enable you to create your own strains. You'll be able to select plants with the traits you like and use them to create your own customised varieties. You can modify anything—the terpene profile, cannabinoid content, productivity, and size. You’ll also want to grow out regular seeds if you plan on taking cuttings. Cloning will allow you to skip the germination phase and create an exact genetic copy of a selected plant. Only regular plants produce fully viable and vigorous clones.

Feminized seeds were created to maximise the chances of germinating female plants. To be precise, the chances of a female emerging are around 99.9%. The odds are in your favour if you’re seeking flowers over pollen sacs!

PROS CONS Almost guaranteed to produce female plants Aren’t suitable for breeding purposes Eliminate the 50:50 genetic gamble Produce less viable clones; growers need to start from seed in most cases Ideal for growers looking for nothing but dank buds Can sometimes turn into hermaphrodites due to bad genetics or environmental stress Streamline the growing process and are cost-effective - P R OS CONS Almost guaranteed to produce female plants Aren’t suitable for breeding purposes Eliminate the 50:50 genetic gamble Produce less viable clones; growers need to start from seed in most cases Ideal for growers looking for nothing but dank buds Can sometimes turn into hermaphrodites due to bad genetics or environmental stress Streamline the growing process and are cost-effective - HOW ARE FEMINIZED GENETICS MADE? Feminized genetics are made by essentially crossing one female with another. Breeders use two techniques to force female plants to produce pollen. They then fertilise another female, whose flowers produce a generation of feminized seeds. We know what you’re thinking; how on Earth can a female suddenly grow balls?! Well, there are two different ways to achieve this. By stopping the production of ethylene levels in plant tissues, breeders can force female plants to produce pollen sacs. Various chemical agents can be used to catalyse this process—colloidal silver being the safest option. The second method involves relying on nature's deep desire to procreate. If female cannabis plants are left unfertilised, they sometimes take matters into their own hands.

Occasionally, they’ll flip sexes in an attempt to fertilise themselves. They produce oddly shaped pollen-producing structures known descriptively as “bananas”. Breeders collect this “female pollen” and use it to fertilise female flowers to produce feminized seeds.
