Regular cannabis seeds are completely natural cannabis seeds that have not been chemically altered or genetically modified in any way. They are pure, stable genetics, bred from male and female parents and they produce approximately 50/50 male to female ratio.
Most cannabis growers generally want feminized marijuana seeds, while many breeders and some experienced growers may choose to use regular seeds for specific purposes. Regular cannabis seeds offer the same genetics and can often do a better job of retaining the best features and genetics of each parent plant.
One advantage of these regular cannabis seeds is that once the male plants are removed from the grow (usually a quick and easy process) the remaining females will be strong and very stress-resistant. It is very rare, in fact almost unheard of, for true females to start displaying hermaphroditic tendencies, even towards the end of the flowering period.
So if you are looking for marijuana seeds with the most vigor, hybrid cannabis plants grown from regular seeds are usually much more resilient and tough enough to withstand any fluctuations in the growing environment.
Regular cannabis seeds are totally natural marijuana seeds that have not been chemically altered or genetically modified in any way. They are pure genetics, bred from male and female parents and produce approximately 50% male and 50% female offspring.
Despite the popularity of feminized marijuana seeds, regular seeds are still offered by many breeders. Regular cannabis seeds offer the same genetics at a lower price than their feminized versions and often do a better job of retaining the best features of each parent plant.

For the gardener who enjoys making his own seed stock, regular seeds are a vital part of the process. Male plants can be separated from the females and the pollen collected for later use. Sometimes the pollen will be applied perhaps only to specific female plants. Once pollinated the females will start producing their seeds which can be collected. For the seed-producing grower there is the challenge of selecting the best male and female plants to cross. Of course there is the additional challenge of ensuring that the entire crop is not accidentally pollinated!
When cannabis plants grow seed naturally they produce regular seeds that give rise to roughly 50% male and 50% female offspring. Before Dutch Passion gave the world feminised seed technology in the 1990’s, regular seeds were the only option.
Regular seeds are also frequently planted ‘in faith’ by outdoor growers who are keen to see cannabis successfully re-established in the wild again. These seeds are often planted in small groups in forests and on inaccessible mountain sides with the deliberate intention of allowing cross pollination and seed setting, thereby re-introducing small pockets of natural cannabis plants back in the wild. This idea isn’t as strange as it sounds, in the last century wild-growing cannabis has been systematically eradicated from many areas.
All natural cannabis seeds, how nature made them.
However, regular seeds remain popular with growers who don’t mind producing male cannabis plants, there are many amateur growers who like to produce their own seeds – especially in countries where importing cannabis seeds has been outlawed. For these people there is the double challenge of growing their own stash and the extra challenge of producing some seeds for next years crop.
Today regular seeds are still sold, though they are not as popular as feminised seeds. Regular seeds have gradually become less accepted since private cultivators tend to prefer smaller gardens filled with female-only plants.
Regular seeds are also bought by traditional gardeners who perhaps have never fully adapted to the concept of feminised seed technology, even though it is now a reliable science.
Although regular seeds have become less popular than they used to be they remain an important part of cannabis seed sales.
