Do female marijuana plants produce seeds

Cannabis plants go through two stages of life, the “vegetative” stage and the “flowering stage.”

Marijuana plants should reveal the first signs of their gender within 2-3 weeks after being changed to 12-12.

Otherwise you must wait for the flowering stage

Yet there are good and bad breeders out there, and with good breeders, you have a very low chance of running into cannabis sex problems.

So if you do choose to purchase feminized seeds (or any seeds really), please make sure you get them from a trusted breeder!

The pollen from a hermie plant makes feminized seeds

letting buds over-mature – this is also known as “rodelization;” basically when the plant’s buds have gone past maturity without being pollinated (if the grower waits way too long to harvest), a female plant may make male pollen within its buds as a last ditch effort to pollinate itself and make seeds for the next generation

So only some feminized seeds come from parents with bad genetics, and that’s what’s the grower cares about most.

There are different ways to feminize seeds, but only some methods produce seeds that turn hermie on you.

Conclusion: Feminized seeds from a trustworthy breeder have a low chance of producing hermies, but the odds are much worse with feminized seeds from an untrustworthy source

Feminized seeds are susceptible to becoming hermies themselves when exposed to the same conditions as their female “father” who produced the pollen. But since any plant can be chemically induced to produce pollen, it doesn’t mean that the ability to hermie in a natural environment is passed on to the seeds.
