I’ve seen some growers get impressive results with bagseed, but overall results seem to be hit or miss. Plants can grow in odd ways and often either the yields or quality isn’t as expected. The problem is that seeds often don’t “breed true” to the buds that they came from. That is why many growers either stick to clones (which are exactly the same as the “mother” plant) or purchase seeds of a stabilized strain from a trustworthy breeder, where each of the plants will grow the way you expect, and buds more consistently have the smell, yield and potency they’re supposed to.
What does it mean to find seeds in your marijuana buds? Is it something to be worried about?
There’s a seed in my bud!
Are seeds good to grow?
Seeds are the result of pollination. That means the seedy cannabis buds (which come from a female plant) may have come into contact with pollen from a male plant. Therefore, it’s possible the grower didn’t identify and remove all the male plants before the released pollen. It’s also possible that the plant self-pollinated (sometimes called herming) which is often the result of plant stress during the budding phase but can also be caused by genetics.
If it’s very seedy the buds may not feel as potent, though a few seeds here and there won’t make much difference in potency. The main problem with seedy weed is that you are getting less smokeable bud for the amount of total mass there. If it is seedless, you will get a lot more bang for your buck. Seedless bud (sinsemilla) is considered to be the highest quality and most potent type of weed.
It should be dark and relatively hard. Very pale or white seeds, that can be easily crushed between the fingers, usually won’t sprout. However, I have been surprised to find some very flimsy seeds sprout and produce amazing plants (we aren’t breeding them for hard seeds after all) so when in doubt, I highly recommend doing the true test to see if the seed is viable – try to germinate the seed and see if it sprouts!
Upon smoking the cured buds, sweeter flavours of lemon will signal the beginning of the relaxing effects to come. With a THC percentage of 12%, this is the ideal strain for those seeking a mild high in the evening. You can savour all the characteristics of this cultivar without being overwhelmed by intense psychoactivity.
When growing autoflowering cannabis plants, there is somewhat of an expectation that they will be easy to grow. While this is often the case, few auto strains match the ease of cultivation and yield potential of Easy Bud.
Maintaining similarities to Royal Dwarf, but with a few genetic differences, Easy Bud is a superb indica-dominant strain. Combining robust ruderalis genetics with strong indica strains, Easy Bud can be grown nearly anywhere—indoors, outdoors, in a greenhouse, on the windowsill, you name it!
A Favourite Among Guerrilla Growers
Of course, a major reason for this adaptability is Easy Bud’s short stature. Averaging heights between 50–60cm indoors, calling this plant squat is a bit of an understatement. All the same, after just 9–10 weeks post-germination, you’ll crop ample yields up to 325g/m² indoors and up to 80g/plant outdoors.
Easy Bud is of course recommended for the novice grower, as well as those looking to crop multiple harvests of tasty Easy Bud buds per season. Even still, the impatient cultivator will be pleased by how quickly the strain races to harvest, providing aromas of herbaceous Skunk in the final weeks of flowering.
Sometimes, growing cannabis doesn’t need to be that complicated. Give Easy Bud a go, and you’ll learn just how simple it is to grow this hardy specimen.
