If you are not new to marijuana, there are high chances that you've heard the term feminized marijuana seeds. The term refers to seeds that do not have the male chromosomes and should produce only female plants.
Feminized seeds are vital in the cannabis industry as they help growers cultivate female plants only, eliminating the tedious process of cross-pollination. Furthermore, having male plants in the field could ruin an entire harvest when the male plants pollinate young female plants' flowers. And when that happens, the entire crop will be full of flowers containing seeds.
The reason breeders having been focused on developing feminized marijuana seeds for all strains is to eliminate the chances of having male plants and having male plants pollinate female plants. They also use feminized seeds to increase production since female cannabis plants produce the flower/bud that is rich in cannabinoids, which the customer is after.
Feminized weed seeds are developed by utilizing several techniques. You can opt to stress your female cannabis plant by interrupting its light cycle during the flowering phase. This process is referred to as rodelization and involves forcing your female plants to remain in the flowering stage for so long that the plant self-pollinates. Then use the pollen from this plant to pollinate other female plants and voila you have feminized seeds. However, this method is not always successful.
You can also develop feminized seeds by spraying your female cannabis plants with colloidal silver while growing and during their transition into the flowering phase. The chemical stimulates the development of pollen sac, which carries female chromosomes. Then use the pollen from the flowers to pollinate regular female flowers. And the pollinated flowers will produce feminized marijuana seeds.
You can also spray a young female plant with silver thiosulfate. The chemical inhibits the production of ethylene, which is vital during the flowering process. Silver thiosulfate encourages the production of pollen, which is used to pollinate regular female plants to produce feminized cannabis seeds.
