Bad weed seeds

This is mostly because it’s tough to pinpoint when the seed itself is the actual problem. Most growers will blame themselves for a problem that shows up in their grow long before they assume it’s the seeds.

That being said, sometimes bagseed is all you have, and lots of growers get lucky!

Bag seeds you randomly find in your buds aren’t supposed to be there, so that means that the genetics are a toss-up. Even if the seeds started with good parents, there’s no telling how high or low the quality will be. Unfortunately, the only way to find out is to grow it… Some growers win the genetic lottery, but many others lose out.

The term sinsemilla is derived from the Spanish words “sin” (meaning “without”) and “semilla” (meaning “seed”) to mean as stated, without seed. This word has been associated with seedless cannabis flower since the 1970’s in North America but there is some evidence of it dating back further to countries like India! To clear up a few myths; sinsemilla is NOT a strain or genetics. It’s a female cannabis plant that has not been exposed to male plants (aka not fertilized).

I found 1-3 seeds in my weed We do not suggest growing with these seeds as they come from a stressed genetic background ( hermaphrodite plant).

If you’re going to try growing with seeds, check on their viability first. Seeds that are dark in color are best. Whole dark, mottled seeds are mature and ready to plant, but the lighter, softer or cracked seeds are not as viable for successful germination . The image below is an example of healthy looking cannabis seeds that should be viable.

Why This Matters

The plants that you grow from the seeds you found in your weed might not yield a lot and the quality might not be what you expect. Most people who are growing on a regular basis will use a cutting that has been rooted – otherwise known as a clone. The other seed option is from a mother plant. Some other growers purchase their seeds from a stable strain, providing more consistent results. Still, it can be fun to grow an experiment! We also like eating cannabis seeds as they are a superfood – too bad they are SO expensive!
