What does it mean to find seeds in your marijuana buds? Is it something to be worried about?

Does it mean the weed is bad?
Seedy weed is fine to smoke, though you should remove the seeds if possible (they have no THC and will pop if you smoke them). Unless there are tons of seeds, bud potency is unlikely to be affected.
