cannabis s1 seeds

Our beloved marijuana strains are produced using several different breeding methods. Check out the terminology used to describe the unique genetics of different cannabis varieties.

Poly-hybrids derive from mixing completely different hybrids with each other. For example, Master Kush and Durban Poison produce offspring called F1(A); AK-47 and White Widow produce an offspring called F1(B). When F1(A) and F1(B) have a lovechild, it will be coined as a poly-hybrid.

Breeding cannabis is a complicated art that can be performed in plenty of ways. Here, we describe the common terms surrounding various cannabis genetics and how they came to be. We decided to keep it short and concise, as all the scientific minutiae can be very complex.

Backcrossing refers to taking a hybrid strain and breeding it back with the original parent. For example, a male Chocolope and a female Jack Herer develop an F1 hybrid. When this F1 hybrid is hybridised with the original female Jack Herer, the resulting strain will be coined as BX1. When this BX1 gets backcrossed again with the original female Jack Herer, it will be coined as BX2, and so on. The genetics of the original female strain can be retained by keeping the plant in the vegetative stage as a mother, keeping the cuttings as clones or using tissue culture propagation.

F2, or “second-generation hybrid,” is the second generation of seeds that are produced after your F1 cannabis seeds have flowered and had the chance to breed with its brother and sister plants of the same generation. Two F1 strains that have been bred together create the F2 seed hybrids, two F2 strains that are bred create F3 seed hybrids, and so on.

Female plants can produce S1 seeds through a process called “selfing”. Selfing is a chemically-induced process by breeders that causes female plants a certain amount of stress, resulting in them producing male flowers. These male flowers will then produce pollen, which pollinates the rest of the plant through self-pollination. Female plants that have self-pollinated will then produce what is known as stable S1 seeds, or seeds that have been “selfed”.

The Difference Between F1 And F2

F1 simply stands for “first-generation hybrid,” or the first generation of offspring from your initial mother and father plants. F1 cannabis seeds are the first generation of seeds produced from initial pollination. These are considered to be the most stable of hybrid seeds, as they haven’t yet been crossed with another breed of cannabis. This subsequent generation is what’s referred to as F2.

Backcrossing in cannabis breeding is the process of taking an F1 hybrid strain and breeding it with the original parent plant. The genetics of the F1 strain are crossed with the parent plant’s genetics, and the resulting seeds are referred to as BX1. Backcrossing cannabis plants is essentially how to stabilize a strain – in other words, how to preserve and guarantee certain desired traits that are shown in a particular plant.

Cannabis breeding is usually a step left for experienced growers, so let’s start with the basics first. Cannabis seeds are bred when a male cannabis plant of one strain pollinates a female cannabis plant of a different strain. The genetics of the male plant are then crossed with the genetics of a female plant, producing seeds of what we refer to as a hybrid strain. To do this, you’ll need to set up a pollination chamber away from your other plants so there is no cross-pollination occurring. Your male plant will be guaranteed to pollinate the female plant, which will continue producing buds but will also be producing seeds as well.

One thing I learned about making colloidal silver. There’s a lot of superstition in that area. I’m hoping UC Davis’s new marijuana department will clear up some of the marijuana controversies.

I’m experimenting with making S1 seeds, mostly just because I’m an autistic nerd and want to know how. I have no plans to sell any (which is illegal in Cal.).

Thus he’s FULL of seeds. Not only that, but the first plant that made the huge burst of pollen, has done it again and again and again. I’m going to have to sweep up that floor. Meanwhile, the plant I forced to make pollen grew some flowers anyway, and she’s pollinated herself.

But, it doesn’t get a yellow/brown color like they say. Just go for that, works fine without measuring it.

That sucker is still alive today, 2 months past it’s predicted lifespan. It’s making so much pollen that I don’t even collect it. Looks to me like she might even pollinate a few of the flower hairs she’s managed to grow along with the really old pollen sacs. We’ll see. That would be a free S1.

In the case of colloidal silver, it DOES NOT harm the plant, if you follow good directions for making it (like on this forum).

Produced no pollen in the time I expected. So I ditched it to another room, not wanting to kill it.
