There are lots of reasons why to pucker up for feminised seeds. Male plants don’t pull their weight as they don’t produce buds. They can even wreck your crops by turning those lovely productive female plants into lazy males. The girls are also preferable as they hold a much higher content of THC, CBD and CBN than male plants.
What do these little ladies do? Feminised seeds are bred to specifically eliminate male chromosomes. Before feminised seeds, cannabis seeds were approximately 50% male and 50% female, which meant growing took a lot more effort and time. Feminised seeds ensure that every plant you grow is going to be female, which means lots of budding leaves. That’s right, those men aren’t necessary! Female cannabis plants naturally produce staminate flowers under stressful conditions (such as weather or light changes) to naturally pollinate themselves, allowing them to survive.
You’re missing out if you haven’t added feminised seeds to your cannabis collection yet. Modern breeders have perfected the feminisation process to create seeds that are stress free. No need to remove male plants and no waiting around. Buy some feminised beauties and you won’t have to get your hands dirty!
If all that hasn’t got you sold, seed banks around the world are quickly replacing their normal cannabis seeds with feminised auto’s. That just proves the demand for these stable genetics are getting higher. Stop wasting time, pick a strain and discover the power and yield of these hybrid seeds.

Growing feminised seeds is fun and easy, since there’s no need to carry out the rather complex male plant identification and removal process that is generally conducted when the flowering of regular strains kicks off.
Our well-known and notable breeder Professor OG, who has spent over 25 years investigating and developing genetics, founded the seed bank Dinafem Seeds in 2005. In that very moment, accompanied by a great instinct and passion, he decided to specialise in feminised seeds, because he saw all the benefits inherent in these seeds and wanted all cannabis lovers to enjoy the new and ground-breaking genetics he had created using quality selected elite clones.
Our feminised seeds keep their parents’ dominating traits and have a homogeneous development that contributes to the crop’s stability. No wonder these requirements are essential for every grower because finding the aroma, the flavour and the effect expected is fundamental.
Feminized seeds or female seeds?
For gardeners who require a quick and easy growing and flowering process, these seeds are the ideal choice.
For gardeners who require a quick and easy growing and flowering process, these seeds are the ideal choice. Some medicinal cannabis users may be deterred from cultivating their own supply because of the perceived difficulty of growing, or of identifying the different sexes and removing males early in the blooming period. If this process is too long delayed,
the males will fertilize the females, leading to a disappointing harvest of seeded bud with a lower amount of trichomes. Just one male plant is capable of fertilizing a large number of ladies. This is the last thing that most gardeners desire, especially those growing for medicinal reasons. Feminized, or ‘fem’, varieties offer a simple solution to these issues, as there is no
need to spend time during their first days in flower checking for males, nor energy removing and destroying them once they are identified.
People who are new to the world of indica and sativa may also have only a vague idea that there are different sexes of this
versatile plant. Seeds that occur naturally are gained from simply allowing a male to fertilize a female, and the resulting seeds will in turn produce both masculine and feminine offspring. There is no reliable way of telling which one will grow into which sex of plant, short of actually growing them. It is therefore traditional to germinate more regular seeds than one intends to grow (often twice as many) to allow for the removal of males. With feminized seeds, gardeners decide how many bushes they want, germinate that number of seeds, then simply grow, flower and reap their rewards. With the introduction of these new cannabis seeds, cultivation became easier than ever before!
Rather than being produced from male spore meeting female flower, feminized seeds are the result of forcing a female plant to produce pollen and then using this to fertilize another female. The resulting seeds lack male chromosomes, so when they are grown out, each plant will produce female flowers and growth characteristics. It is important to note that when this technique was in its infancy, a breed chosen to create male pollen usually had a genetic background that was prone to produce hermaphrodites anyway. These were easier to trigger into growing the distinctive banana-shaped male reproductive organs. Unfortunately they could also pass on their marked hermaphrodite tendencies to their offspring. Nowadays, significant advances in feminized cannabis seed breeding has solved this problem with new techniques for coaxing even the most reluctantly hermaphroditic variety into a yield of the fertile yellow dust.
Feminized cannabis seeds are bred to contain no male chromosomes, so they’ll only grow female plants. That makes these seeds the ideal choice for growers looking for a quick and easy grow. Find your next favourite sativa or indica, THC or CBD strain today, and start growing tomorrow!
