cannabis without seeds name

If you love cannabis, you’ve probably come across the word sinsemilla. Is sinsemilla some special kind of cannabis? Where does it come from? Read on to find out!

In the past, long before cannabis cultivation in the West was established, cannabis and hash were almost exclusively imported. Dried flowers usually came from Mexico, where cannabis was grown in the wild without the care and tech of today’s grow operations. A lot of the imported “grass” had plenty of seeds in it, so it wasn’t really what one would consider quality bud.

SINSEMILLA: WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

As knowledge spread that seedless cannabis flowers made for a far better product, growers started focusing on producing sinsemilla exclusively, culling male plants as soon as they could. If they required seeds for breeding, they kept the sexes strictly separated and only allowed pollination of select female plants in dedicated areas.

That said, the first interpretation that sinsemilla stands for darn good and very potent weed isn’t so wrong. Indeed, seedless cannabis is more potent, tastes better, and is simply of overall higher quality than weed full of seeds.

If you’re interested in cannabis and cannabis culture (and we have an inkling you may well be…), chances are you’ve come across the word “sinsemilla”. Interestingly enough, there is some confusion among people as to what sinsemilla really means.

A highly potent form of marijuana, in which the end, smokable product contains no seeds.

Sensimilla does not refer to a particular breed or strain of plant. Any female marijuana plant which is prevented from becoming fertilized will produce flowers without seeds. This contributes to a higher THC content in the harvest because none of the buds have had a chance to turn into seeds. This also contributes to the quality and rarity of Sensimilla product because an unfertilized sensi-yeilding plant is unable to reproduce (until fertilized).

The term "Sensimilla" is broken down to translate in Spanish as "without seeds" (sin semilla), however the term was coined and popularized in the context of marijuana culture by California growing regions. (which have strong Spanish/Mexican cultural influence)
