Marijuana Cultivation/Producing Seeds
Sooner or later every grower is going to want to produce marijuana seeds. Developing a new stable strain is beyond the scope of this discussion and requires the ability to grow hundreds or even thousands of breeding plants. However, just about any grower can manage to preserve some genetics by growing f2 seeds where they have crossed a male and female of the same strain, or can produce a simple cross which would be referred to as strain1xstrain2 for instance white widow crossed with ak-47 would be referred to as a WW x AK-47. You can produce some excellent seed and excellent marijuana this way.
To Feminise or not to Feminise Edit
There are numerous myths surrounding feminized seeds. Feminizing seeds are a bit more work than simply crossing two plants naturally. However it will save you a lot of time in the end. If you make fem seeds properly then there is no increased chance of hermaphrodites and all seeds will be female. This means no wasted time and effort growing males and it means that all your viable seeds produce useful plants. Since roughly half of normal seeds are male this effectively doubles the number of seeds you have.
Feminized seeds are bred to contain no male chromosomes, which will be able to produce the crop of resinous buds sought by most growers. For gardeners who require a quick and easy cultivation process, feminized seeds are the ideal choice. Some medicinal cannabis users may be deterred from growing their own supply because of the perceived difficulty of growing or of identifying the different genders and removing males early in the blooming period. Feminized seed-strains offer a simple solution to these issues, as there is no need to spend time in the first weeks of flowering checking for male plants.
Other times you will have no choice but to produce feminized seed because it will be a female plants genetics that you want to preserve and you won’t have any males. Perhaps you received these genetics via clone or didn’t keep males.
The new thing on the market for commercial Cannabis cultivation are auto-flowering feminized strains. By crossing of the cannabis ruderalis with Sativa and Indica strains many cultivators have created interesting hybrids which boast benefits from both sides of these families.
The first ‘auto-flowering cannabis seed’ which came on the market a few years ago was the Lowryder #1. This was a hybrid between a Cannabis ruderalis, a William’s Wonder and a Northern Lights #2. This strain was marketed by ‘The Joint Doctor’ and was honestly speaking not very impressive. The genetics of the ruderalis was still highly present which caused for a very low yield and little psychoactive effect. Not very attractive.
Auto-flowering cannabis and the easily distributed seed have opened a whole new market in the world of the online grow-shop, making it easy for home growers with shortage of space to grow rewarding cannabis plants in many different varieties. To grow plants indoors, a growing medium (e.g. soil or growing Potting soil, irrigation (water), fertilizer (nutrients), light and atmosphere need to be supplied to the plant.
Auto-flowers have been rising in popularity fast and there are now auto flower growers communities. These Web properties allow users to get information on how to grow these non photo-sensitive plants and what are the best practices when producing and germinating auto-flower seeds.
Selecting Suitable Parents Edit
There are a number of important characteristics when selecting parents. First are you making fem seeds? If you are then both parents will be female. This makes things easier. If not then the best you can do is select a male with characteristics in common with the females you hope to achieve from the seed.
Obviously potency, yield, and psychoactive effects are critical to the selection process. But some other important traits are size, odor, taste, resistance to mold and contaminants, early finishing and consistency.
Collecting and Storing Pollen Edit
In order to collect pollen you simply put down newspaper around the base of the plant. The pollen will fall from the plant onto the newspaper. You can then put this newspaper into a plastic bag and store it in the refrigerator or freeze it. Pollen will keep for a few months in the refrigerator and can be used on the next crop. Filtering the pollen through a silkscreen, drying, and freezing can extend viability for decades. At least one reader indicates success using pollen treated in this manner and stored at -30 c for 17 years. The chance of viability does decrease with time, even in the freezer, so the more fresh the pollen the better. Wrapping the pollen in a layer of aluminum foil and then a layer of plastic should help to protect it from freezer burn. Additionally, oxygen evacuation such as with a heavy gas like nitrogen or vacuum sealing should provide additional assurance of preservation.
Pollinating a Plant Edit
To pollinate a plant you can brush the pollen on a flower with a cotton swab or you can take the plastic bag, then wrap the flower inside it and shake, trapping the pollen inside for easier transportation. In this way you can selectively pollinate plants and even individual buds and branches.
Male Isolation Edit
A male plant or a plant with male flowers will pollinate your entire crop rendering it seedy. You probably don’t want THAT many seeds so how can you avoid it? Moving the male to another room might work but if that other room shares an air path via ducting or air conditioning then pollen may still find its way. One technique is to construct a male isolation chamber.
A male isolation chamber is simply a transparent container such as a large plastic storage tub turned on its side (available at your local megamart). Get a good sized PC fan that can be powered with pretty much any 12v wall adapter, by splicing together the + (yellow or red on fan, usually dotted on power adapter) and the – wires (black on fan, usually dotted power adapter) just twist with the like wire on the other device and then seal up the connection with electric tape. Then take a filtrate filter and cut out squares that fit the back of the pc fan so that the fan pulls (rather than pushes) air through the filter. Tape several layers of filter to the back of the pc fan so all the air goes through the filter. Now cut a large hole in the top of the plastic container and mount the pc fan over top of it so it pulls air out the box. You can use silicon sealant, latex, whatever you’ve got that gives a good tight seal.
This can be used as is, or you can cut a small intake in the bottom to improve airflow. Pollen won’t be able to escape the intake as long as the fan is moving but you might put filter paper over the intake to protect against fan failures. You can also use grommets to seal holes and run tubing into the chamber in order to water hydroponically from a reservoir outside the chamber. Otherwise you will need to remove the whole chamber to a safe location in order to water the plant or maintain a reservoir kept inside the chamber.
Making Feminized Seed Edit
To make feminized seed you must induce male flowers in a female plant. There is all sorts of information on the Internet about doing this with light stress (light interruptions during flowering) and other forms of stress. The best of the stress techniques is to simply keep the plant in the flowering stage well past ripeness and it will produce a flower (with seed).
Stress techniques will work but whatever genetic weakness caused the plants to produce a male flower under stress will be carried on to the seeds. This means the resulting seeds have a known tendency to produce hermaphrodites. Fortunately, environmental stress is not the only way to produce male flowers in a female plant.
The ideal way to produce feminized seed through hormonal alteration of the plant. By adding or inhibiting plant hormones you can cause the plant to produce male flowers. Because you did not select a plant that produces male flowers under stress there is no genetic predisposition to hermaphroditism in the seed vs plants bred between a male and female parent. There are actually a few ways to do this, the easiest I will list here.
Colloidal Silver (CS) Edit
This is the least expensive and most privacy conscious way to produce fem seed. CS has gotten a bad name because there is so much bad information spread around about its production and concentrations. It doesn’t help that there are those who believe in drinking low concentration colloidal silver for good health and there is information mixed in about how to produce that low concentration food grade product. Follow the information here and you will consistently produce effective CS and know how to apply it to get consistent results.
Simply construct a generator using a 9-12 v power supply (DC output, if it says AC then its no good) that can deliver at least 250ma (most wall wart type power supplies work, batteries are not recommended since their output varies over time). The supply will have a positive and negative lead, attach silver to each lead (contrary to Internet rumors, you aren’t drinking this so cheap 925(92.5%) Stirling silver is more than pure enough. You can expose the leads by clipping off the round plug at the end and splitting the wires, one will be positive and the other negative just like any old battery. Submerge both leads about 2-3 inches apart in a glass of distilled water (roughly 8 oz). Let this run for 8-24 hrs (until the liquid reads 12-15 ppm) and when you return the liquid will be a purple or silver hue and there may be some precipitate on the bottom.
This liquid is called colloidal silver. It is nothing more or less than fine particles of silver suspended in water so it is a completely natural solution. It is safe to handle without any special precautions. [ citation needed ] The silver inhibits female flowering hormones in cannabis and so the result is that male flowering hormone dominates and male flowers are produced.
To use the silver, spray on a plant or branch three days prior to switching the lights to 12/12 and continue spraying every three days until you see the first male flowers. Repeated applications after the first flowers appear may result in more male flowers and therefore more pollen. As the plant matures it will produce pollen that can be collected and used to pollinate any female flower (including flowers on the same plant).
Silver Thiosulfate (STS) Edit
Silver Thiosulfate is a substance that has similar principle, application and results of CS, but is more difficult to make. STS is more difficult to acquire, but it can still be obtained directly from a chemical supply company. STS is not an expensive or controlled substance.
Gibberellic Acid (GA3) Edit
This is probably the most popular way to produce feminized seed, but at the same time the least effective. GA3 is a plant hormone that also causes the plant to stretch uncontrollably. It can be purchased readily in powdered form, a quick search reveals numerous sources on e-bay for as little as $15. Simply add to water to reach 100ppm concentration and spray the plant daily for 10 days during flowering and male flowers will be produced.

What is Cannabis?
Known to users as “marijuana”, “weed”, and by many other names, cannabis is a plant that naturally produces THC and other mind-altering chemicals. And like in any other plant species, it’s the seeds that contain blueprints for everything, culminating in the buds that you’ll smoke. You won’t need any special “green thumb” magic to get there. Just take care of your plant’s basic needs, such as light, watering, and nutrients, and let genetics do the rest.
Which Cannabis Seeds?
With Fast Buds seeds, you can be sure of your cannabis potency, as well as exceptional aromas and tastes. But not all weed strains are created equal, and it’s worth learning a thing or two about cannabis to make an informed choice.
What Are Feminized Seeds and Why Choose Them?
All cannabis strains in the Fast Buds catalog are feminized. In contrast to “regular” cannabis, feminized seeds only grow into female plants—the ones that produce buds for smoking. So with feminized cannabis seeds, you don’t have to cull males when you spot them in your garden. With every seed you sow, you’ll get 100% action and 0% waste.
What Are Autoflowering Seeds and Why Choose Them?
Cannabis in general is a short-day plant, meaning that it will only start flowering when days get short enough (which happens in late summer). But autoflowering cannabis doesn’t have this limitation. No matter how long or short the days are, it’ll move through every stage of its life cycle automatically.
All Fast Buds strains are autoflowering, and these are the advantages of using them:
- enjoy 30% faster grow cycles,
- have multiple harvests in spring, summer, and fall outdoors,
- grow vegging and flowering plants side by side indoors,
- get the same yields and quality as with traditional cannabis.
3 Best Steps to Find Cannabis Seeds Tailored To Your Needs
The first cannabis you grow yourself will be so good you’ll wonder how it can be any better. Until you grow your second. And the third… Before you know it, you’ll be on a lifelong quest for that one perfect weed. But is there a way to choose in advance between the simply great and the mind-blowing?
Use Our Filtering Options
Our filters let you choose between different cultivars based on such characteristics as climate, plant size, yield, and ease of growing. You can filter out the results even more by selecting your favorite flavors and the level of potency you’re ready to handle. And if you know the meaning of the terms “Indica”, “Sativa”, and “Hybrid”, choosing the right type will tell you a lot about what to expect from both the cultivar and the smoke it produces.
Read Our Researched Tips and Customer Reviews
Once you’ve got the shortlist of strains using our filters, check out each of them and read the detailed info. We’ve taken great pains to make our descriptions graphic and accurate, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from each of our cannabis genetics. And numerous customer reviews will give you even more perspective.
Get in Touch with Cannabis Experts

How to Buy Cannabis Seeds Online?
Buying cannabis seeds through the Fast Buds website is as easy as online shopping in general. Just choose the seeds you like, add them to your cart, and proceed to checkout. You’ll be able to choose your favorite payment and delivery methods, default discreet or extra stealthy packaging and fill out the address. After that, confirm your order and wait for its speedy and safe arrival.
How Important is Aroma?
It’s no secret that most seed shoppers choose their cannabis strain by smell. Hence all those delicious-sounding names. The special chemicals in the plant called terpenes not only determine the flavor of your smoke but affect the character of the high. Experienced users can even deduce the type of the effect by the description of the weed’s aroma. And so will you someday, and we envy you a lot of exciting discoveries that you’ll make along the way.
The Legal Bit
Our beautifully packaged seeds are really collectibles. Check out your local legislation: chances are that you’re prohibited from germinating hemp seeds and growing plants from them. What you do with your purchase is solely your responsibility. We urge you not to germinate our cannabis seeds if your local law says it’s illegal.
Is cannabis legal?
The legality of cannabis plants varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Also, some limits to their cultivation may apply. Be sure to check your local laws.
Not sure which cannabis seeds to choose?
Any cannabis seed bought from us will turn into a first-rate plant. To find one tailored to your needs, use filters, descriptions, and customer reviews, or chat with our customer service.
What do cannabis seeds look like?
About 3 millimeters big, weed seeds are roundish, with only a slight elongation. They are covered by a firm outer shell that (in mature seeds) is dark, often spotted or striped.
How to germinate cannabis seeds?
Keep them warm and moist between wet paper towels and put them in the soil as soon as they’ve shown taproot.
How to store cannabis seeds?
Best store them in the fridge door or in a dark cool place. At all costs, avoid exposing them to moisture.
How many cannabis seeds per plant?
Experienced growers will get their harvest of buds from every seed. Beginners are encouraged to buy twice as many to compensate for fatal mistakes and emergencies.
How long do cannabis seeds last?
Stored in dry, cool, and dark conditions, in airtight containers or original packages, seeds can last several years with only a slight decline in their vigor and germination rates.
Do you ship seeds to my country?
We probably do. Click the Buy Now button on any strain page and see if you can find your country in the drop-down list under the Shipping address. Alternatively, ask our online support.
What are the easiest cannabis varieties to grow indoor/outdoor?
Apply the Growing filter above the list of strains and check the “Easy growing” option. You’ll find that about two-thirds of our seeds are marked as easy to grow. Reading their descriptions, you’ll see that some of them are especially hardy outdoors.
How do I decide which grow method and equipment to buy?
Start by reading one of our comprehensive guides on autoflower cultivation. Focus on the basics and choose the simplest of methods (soil, hand watering, minimal training) for your first cycles. We also have guides on grow setups and equipment.
What is the difference between auto and photoperiod cannabis varieties?
They react differently to light cycles (duration of days and nights). Photoperiod cannabis flowers only when they get a dark period of 12 hours or more. Autos move through their life cycle automatically.
What is the best site to buy cannabis seeds?
Our website is among the best. See our Trustpilot scores. The choice and quality of seeds, the information and navigation, as well as the shopping experience itself are all superb.
What seeds are best for growing marijuana?
If you grow marijuana for its buds, feminized seeds are your best bet. We’d also recommend most growers, especially beginners, choose autoflowering varieties for their ease of growing, high potency, and exquisite flavors.
Which seed bank is best?
There are a few established leaders on the market that sell their seeds by millions and win international awards. Fast Buds is among them and an undisputed leader in the ‘feminized autoflowering seeds” category.
