male only cannabis seeds

The first signs of flowers or pollen sacs emerge at the nodes—the points at which the branches meet the main stem. Female flowers will emerge as tiny buds with small white hairs, while pollen sacs are round, hairless pods.

Outdoor plants are also more susceptible to pests and fungal diseases.

Outdoor plants are more susceptible to overwatering during rainy weather. Place them inside a greenhouse or under a temporary shelter to prevent root rot from taking hold.

Temperature & humidity

Cannabis is a dioecious species, meaning it produces separate male and female plants. Because female cannabis plants grow the best bud, this led to the creation and popularisation of feminized seeds—strains engineered to produce females 99.99% of the time.

Growing outdoors leaves your plants exposed to the elements. They’ll have the chance to soak up the sun, but you can’t control heat waves, storms, floods, and droughts.

Many beginner growers tend to overwater their plants by caring a bit too much! Start out low and gradually increase the amount of water you give as your plants grow.

Once you’ve grown out the males and females you want to breed, it’s time to make the cross. Use these simple steps to do so.

You might not get much of a high from smoking male plant material, but power comes in numbers. By processing male plants to make hash and concentrates, you’ll condense a small number of cannabinoids into a potent extract. You can make hash by sifting dried plant material, but you should know: you’ll need a lot of it to make the endeavour worthwhile.

Many hobby growers use one single feminized strain, or base their entire grow on essentially identical clones.

Don’t use males that grow especially fast or tall. Most of the time, these plants may be lacking when it comes to the quality of their bud.

TO USE THEM AS MULCH

If you have a rather large garden, you can potentially locate a dedicated space for your male plants. Keep them as far from your females as you can. You can further help reduce the risk of accidental pollination by planting sunflowers to create a natural barrier between your males and females. This allows you to cultivate incredible, smokable cannabis, without having to toss your male plants in fear of accidental pollination.

Eliminate those male plants with an airy bud structure and keep those with dense and tightly-packed buds to ensure good yields.

The females produce fibre that is rough, which is more suited to making things like canvas and other types of rough textile.

You don’t always need to smoke cannabis to get some good use out of your plants. Cannabis plants have various natural defences, including their aromatic terpenes, which are great pest repellents. Cannabis really is an excellent companion plant. A few strategically placed male plants between your veggies may be all that’s needed to keep them pest free, without having to use potentially harmful pesticides!
