For centuries humans have been using feminized seeds to ensure a better outcome in agriculture. For CBD hemp–it is no different. As with many crops, hemp plants grown with feminized seeds grow and flower faster while producing a more desirable result (higher CBD yields).
To put it simply, feminized CBD seeds are seeds that grow only female plants–to the exclusion of male and hermaphroditic ones. Feminized seeds are bred to eliminate males chromosomes for the best possible CBD outcome.. The benefits you get from producing only female CBD plants on your hemp farm are profuse and profound and definitely something to consider before you plant.
Producing all-female plants starts with the seeds you buy. Feminized seeds from a reliable hemp seed company are guaranteed to produce high-quality female CBD hemp plants. In fact, a feminized seed purchase increases the chances of producing only female plants by around 99%. And, as you will learn, producing quality CBD is a ladies-only game for some pretty convincing reasons.
Buying Feminized CBD Seeds Creates Less Work: Just like with humans, the seeds of a hemp plant are about 50/50 male and female. Meaning, when you plant the seeds in the ground–the odds of you getting male plants are about even and your mature plants will be about half male. Since the male plants are almost exclusively for pollinating not CBD content, they are essentially useless to your harvest. Therefore, you waste time, money, space and water cultivating male plants along with the female hemp plants.
No Need To Identify The Gender of Each Plant: If you plant both male and female hemp seeds on your farm, you will eventually need to remove all the male plants. This is an incredibly time-consuming process that requires you to properly identify the sex of each plant and then painstakingly remove them. If you miss even one male plant, you risk pollinating the entire lot of females you have worked so hard to cultivate. When a female hemp plant is pollinated you could lose up to 50% of its mass, diminish flower set, and reduce its CBD concentration. This cuts deeply into your profit margin.
Feminized CBD Seeds Maximize Resources: Just like feminized CBD seeds create less work for you–they also make the best use of your resources. Since you can’t tell the sex of a CBD plant right away, you waste precious time, water and fertilizer rearing a plant that you won’t use. You also spend man-power on sexing the seeds and removing male plants that, if left to maturity, could pollinate and ruin your female plant’s purity.
Feminized CBD Seeds Increase Yield Per Acre: Planting feminized CBD seeds is a way to optimize your coveted hemp field growing space. The more female plants you have per acre, the more profit you can garner. If your field is all-female plants from the start, this will obviously result in the highest yield. By mixing in male plants (that are essentially “throw-away” plants) you lower your overall yield per acre. So, the more female CBD producers you can pack in–the better the yield and the lower the risk.
Feminized Seeds Produce Superior CBD Hemp: As mentioned female plants are typically used for CBD, not males. While male plants do contain CBD, they do not produce nearly as much as female plants. Beyond that, seeds with only female genetics (of any plant) show faster-paced growth and flowering in studies. Female plants that grow without male pollination interference produce almost double the amount of mass and test much higher for CBD concentration.
