If you want six total cannabis plants to harvest for buds and are growing from regular seeds, start with about 4 times as many, or 24 seeds. Some won’t germinate and some will turn out to be males, and then you’ll want to discard down to the six best phenotypes. If growing feminized seeds, you can probably start with about twice as many seeds in this case (about 12); a couple won’t germinate, and then discard down to the six best phenotypes.
Breeders talk about “unstable genetics,” meaning that a seed’s origin is unknown. Make sure that when you buy a packet of seeds that it or the breeder who produced them can list where the seeds came from and how they were crossed and/or backcrossed to get the seed that you hold in your hand. If you can’t get a seed’s history, it could be anything and the result of poor breeding practices.
Even one weed plant can produce a lot of buds come harvest time, so make sure you grow a strain you like. Note strains you enjoy when you pick something up at the dispensary or smoke with friends, and look for seeds of it when you want to start growing.
How many seeds should I buy? Are they all going to survive?
If you buy a packet of regular seeds, they’ll come with a mix of males and females. A lot of cultivators prefer to grow these because they haven’t been backcrossed—essentially inbred—as much as feminized or autoflower seeds. You’ll need to sex out the seeds once their reproductive organs show during the flowering phase and discard the males—because they don’t produce buds and will pollenate females, resulting in seeded flowers.
Feminized and autoflower seeds will cost more because more breeding work was put in to creating them and they take less time for the grower to get buds.
Some strains also take longer to grow than others. Depending on whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors, you may want to grow a quicker marijuana strain if you live in a climate that get cold and wet early in the season. For example, indicas are known for having a shorter flowering time than sativas.
and in recent years have concentrated our efforts on producing regular only strains in an effort to maintain genetic heritage. It is this commitment to breeding that allows MSNL to offer one of the largest catalogues of regular marijuana seeds.
High quality regular Indica strains, known for their powerful sedative stone.
100% pure and chemically un-altered, regular marijuana seeds are bred from a male and female parent and can produce male or female plants. They are some of the purest genetics available and produce approximately 50% male and 50% female offspring.
The hardier of the cannabis strains, outdoor strains grow tall and produce big yields.
Despite the rise in advanced, specifically bred female genetics, the popularity of regular cannabis seeds has remained strong amongst enthusiasts. The pure genetics are highly sought by growers looking for greater flexibility in their gardens and increased value for money. Until recent years growers had no choice but use regular seeds however the introduction of feminized seeds has seen many seed breeders neglect the regular strain category.
We offer the bulk of our award winning genetics in both regular and feminized seeds
The connoisseurs choice, offering soaring, cerebral highs and excellent medical qualities.
Relaxing and deeply sedating. Let the perfume of grapes and berries lull you to sleep.
Just like a bar of chocolate, this pot can make life sweeter.

All hail, the original badass gangsta is here!
Until the 1990’s, regular seeds were the only marijuana seeds available on the market, so growers often participated in time-consuming testing methods to classify the sex of each plant before they could successfully separate male plants from female plants. This process involved a high degree of effort and undesired cross-pollination in an attempt to isolate the sexes. With the introduction of feminization techniques and feminized marijuana seeds in the 90’s, un-sexedmarijuana seeds lost popularity but their value has not decreased at all. The value of regular seeds and their potential to produce male and female plants is massive, primarily because the female marijuana plant produces potent bud and the male marijuana plant produces the pollen necessary for pollinating females, and it’s those pollinated females that produce flowers loaded with seeds. Harvesting your own seeds from pollinated female cannabis plants is where the value lies when you buy regular seeds. The benefit of growing female plants that produce seeds (mother plants) is the potential to save the seeds. Once obtained, you can store the seeds in a dark, dry, cool environment for as long as 3 years. Buy regular, un-sexed, marijuana seeds to take your operation to the next level!
