Marijuana can only be grown from female cannabis seeds and it is illegal to grow marijuana in the state of Oregon. The higher quality these seeds are, the better your results will be. Female seeds are the only ones that will produce the marijuana flowers, or bud, which contains the highest THC in the plant. Male plants still play a role in fertilization, but male plants are kept separate and should not be grown with females. A male plant can ruin a harvest by “seeding” the females, resulting in bud that has excess seeds and would have otherwise been seedless. Seed free buds are ideal because the seeds are not smoked or consumed. Fertilized buds are entirely unnecessary unless you are using the seeds for a specific purpose.
Today’s most popular strains are often produced in grow labs, where exotic and high demand cannabis strains are grown. Many growers will obtain their seeds from grow labs, in order to get the best strains with the highest THC content.
