  • Debunking the myths of feminised seeds

    Roll up, roll up, one and all and marvel as we debunk the myths of feminised cannabis seeds! Then, impress your friends with your expert knowledge and put it into practise to become a top collector.

    So, let’s jump right in. Feminised seeds are pretty well established now but started as a niche in the cannabis seed world a few decades ago, with some people thinking they were ‘unnatural’ or even ‘unstable’ genetically. This view came from the idea that they were bred from a number of different strains and genes.

    Myth: Unstable genetics

    Here we are in 2017 and this view is still touted around online, even though it’s totally in the past. Over the years breeders have created fantastic new strains and feminised versions of our favourites which are 100% stable. They are now very much seeds that stand on their own two feet, all benefits included.

    The proof is in the results: feminised seeds are potent, successful in producing only female plants that produce bud (in theory - in the UK you can’t germinate these seeds) and are super resilient to changing weather conditions. A great example of a feminised legend is the Auto White Widow from Dutch Passion. See for yourself.

    Status: Debunked!

    Myth: They’re just for beginners

    Feminised seeds are a lot easier to maintain and care for than regular seeds, because they’ve been bred this way over time. In countries where they can be germinated, the fact they only produce females mean there aren’t any males to cut away, which is hassle, and there’s more space for the plants that you want. Altogether, this saves time and energy and has better results.

    Sure, all of these points make them great for beginners but they are truly for any seed enthusiast as the quality is spot on and worthy of any collection. Perhaps even better are the feminised seeds that are also autoflowering - like these Northern Light seeds from Nirvana - click here for indepth stats.

    Status: Debunked!

    Myth: Poor growth

    Absolutely the most untrue myth of them all! This was sometimes thought back in the day when they were produced in small quantities and never commercially. Really, it came about from the idea that you had the quality in hand, so had to forego the quantity.

    In actual fact, female plants grow faster than males and if you see a plant growing slowly, it’s likely a male you need to cut down. Female plants are proven to mature faster and pollinate themselves, speeding up the whole process, completely turning this view on it’s head.

    Status: Debunked!

    Myth: They’re just a trend

    Nope, they are well and truly here to stay. Hybrids perform better, so why would they go anywhere? Demand only grows and the future is looking good for breeders who put quality feminised seeds on the market. As we look ahead here at ICE Cannabis Seeds, we can only see them growing in popularity; the benefits are too good for them not to. Just ask any top brand - Big Buddha, Sensi Seeds, Greenhouse Seeds - they’re all investing time and energy into hybrids.

    Status: Debunked!
