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

Less scrupulous breeders might breed two random female plants together and sell the resulting seeds as a new strain without any testing. In this second case, you don’t know what to expect, and neither does the breeder.

Breeder choice is important!

“Sinsemilla” means “no seeds.” Sinsemilla is the highest quality and most potent of all buds

Unfortunately, some cannabis seed breeders are more trustworthy than others. The great ones have created stabilized strains that have been bred over several generations to produce a consistent product without any problems with plant sex.

Seed Banks & Breeders

What’s most important, whether you get feminized seeds or not, is to get your seeds from a breeder who has a reputation for producing quality genetics. That is the best thing you can do for any strain to ensure a smooth grow. With a great breeder, you have a very low risk of running into any sex or gender problems.

Is it True that Feminized Seeds Sometimes Cause Hermies? Yes!

If the breeder hasn’t tested their strains extensively in many situations, they won’t know whether their seeds tend to hermie or not. If they have carelessly bred plants that have a tendency to herm, then it’s really likely that at least some of the resulting seeds will have the same problem.

Male Pollen Sac

I found 10+ seeds in my weed – These seeds will give you a 50/50 chance of female/male plants. Usually these seeds occur from male plant fertilization. If you have the time and knowledge, grow them! Make sure you look out for those nanners as you get into flowering. Nanners are male pollen sacks that look like little bananas!

Before You Buy

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.
