What Are Regular Cannabis Seeds?

What Are Regular Cannabis Seeds?

Regular seeds are unique because they contain both female and male cannabis genetics, meaning they can grow into both male and female plants. Unlike autoflowering seeds, regular seeds are also photoperiodic, meaning plants will flower based on changes in their light cycle, not based on their age.

What Is the Difference Between Regular and Feminized Cannabis Seeds?

Feminized seeds (and the vast majority of autoflowering seeds) contain only female genetics. This means that they will only grow into female plants. Breeders typically create feminized seeds by purposefully stressing their female plants, causing them to produce their own pollen as a final attempt to reproduce. The breeders then harvest this pollen and use it to pollinate other female plants, resulting in seeds that only contain female genetics and therefore only grow into female plants.

Regular seeds, on the other hand, are created using pollen from male plants to pollinate female flowers. The resulting seeds therefore contain both male and female genetics, and can grow into both male and female plants.

Can Regular Cannabis Seeds Be Autoflowering?

While they are not common, there are regular autoflowering cannabis seeds on the market. These seeds flower automatically once they reach a certain age and can grow into both female or male plants. Two examples of regular auto strains are Big Auto regular and CBD Haze Auto regular, both bred by the team at Top Tao Seeds.

Why Grow Regular Cannabis Seeds?

Why Grow Regular Cannabis Seeds?

Regular seeds seem to have taken a bit of a hiatus, with feminized and autoflowering seeds definitely accounting for the majority of cannabis seed sales. And that begs the question; why would anybody still bother growing regular marijuana seeds?

Well, the short answer is, for breeding and cloning. While the market for regular seeds is definitely more niche, it has far from disappeared. Experienced cannabis breeders rely on regular marijuana seeds for creativity, as they serve as the most natural portal into the world of cannabis genetics and breeding. Only by using regular seeds can breeders have the freedom to really explore the traits of different strains and combine them as they see fit.

While feminized and auto seeds are great solutions for hobby growers who want to harvest their own bud, regular seeds are the top choice for breeders looking to make their mark on cannabis genetics.

Furthermore, regular seeds make for more durable and viable mother plants. This way, you can take clones from a quality pheno and successfully replicate its traits as you please. With feminized seeds, the chances of cloning success are much smaller.
