Cannabis seeds 101: How to grow marijuana from seed
Cannabis is grown from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Seeds carry genetic information from two parent plants and can express many different combinations of traits: some from the mother, some from the father, and some traits from both.
In commercial cannabis production, generally, growers will plant many seeds of one strain and choose the best plant. They will then take clones from that individual plant, which allows for consistent genetics for mass production.
If cannabis is legal in your state, you can buy seeds or clones from a local dispensary, or online through various seed banks.
Cannabis seeds vs. clones
For the typical homegrower, it may be easier to obtain cannabis seeds rather than clones. Growing from seed can produce a stronger plant with more solid genetics.
Plants grown from seed can be more hearty as young plants when compared to clones, mainly because seeds have a strong taproot. You can plant seeds directly into an outdoor garden in early spring, even in cool, wet climates.
If growing outside, some growers prefer to germinate seeds inside because they are delicate in the beginning stages of growth. Indoors, you can give weed seedlings supplemental light to help them along, and then transplant them outside when big enough.
Most seeds that you will buy are regular seeds as described above, but here are a couple more types.
How weed seeds work
Cannabis can be either male or female—also called “dioecious”—but only females produce the buds we all know and love. For reproduction, males have pollen sacs and pollinate females, causing female flowers to produce seeds.
Once cannabis seeds are mature, the female plant begins to die, and seeds are either dropped to the ground where they grow into new cannabis plants next spring, or the seeds are harvested for processing into seed oil or food products, or stored so they can be sown in the ground later and become the next generation of plants.
To get the buds found in medical and recreational stores, female cannabis plants are grown in an environment without males—or the males are removed from the area before they release pollen—so the females don’t create seeds. Females can then focus their energies on producing buds and not seeds—this high-potency marijuana is traditionally known as “sinsemilla,” meaning “seedless.”
Some varieties of cannabis can produce male parts alongside female flowers on the same plant, especially if exposed to environmental stressors. These plants are known as hermaphrodites, and sometimes they can self-pollinate to create seeds.
Pros and cons of using cannabis seeds
Check out Johanna’s full video series on how to grow weed on Leafly’s YouTube .
If buying from a reputable breeder or seed bank, growing from seed is the best way to ensure your plants will have solid genetics and start clean, meaning they won’t come with diseases or pests.
Also, buying from a reputable breeder or seed bank will give you a sense of what a particular strain will look and smell like, how it will grow, and how much it will yield at harvest.
The main drawback to growing from seed is there is no guarantee as to what you’ll end up with—if you buy a regular pack of cannabis seeds, it will be a mix of males and females. You’ll need to sex them out (more below) to identify the males and get rid of them, because you don’t want your females producing seeds.
Sexing marijuana plants can be a time-consuming process, and if you don’t catch males, there is a risk that even one males can pollinate your entire crop, causing all of your female weed plants to produce seeds.
One way to avoid sexing plants is to buy feminized seeds (more below), which ensures every seed you plant will be a bud-producing female.
You can also minimize headaches and avoid the hassle of seed germination and sexing plants by starting with clones.
How weed clones work
Aside from producing cannabis through seeds, or sexual reproduction, you can also reproduce the plant through cloning, or asexual reproduction. A clone is a cutting that is genetically identical to the plant it was taken from—that plant is known as the “mother.”
Pros and cons of using cannabis clones
Through cloning, you can create a new harvest with exact replicas of your favorite plant. Because genetics are identical, a clone will give you a plant with the same characteristics as the mother, such as flavor, cannabinoid profile, yield, grow time, etc. So if you come across a specific strain or phenotype you really like, you might want to clone it to reproduce more buds that have the same effects and characteristics.
With cloning, you don’t have to get new seeds every time you want to grow another plant—you just take a cutting of the old plant—and you don’t have to germinate seeds or sex them out and get rid of the males.
One drawback of clones is they need to be taken during the vegetative stage of a plant—flower is too late—so if you have a small setup with only one light, it can be hard to keep clones alive while flowering other plants, because the two need different amounts of light.
Another drawback to clones is they can take on negative traits from the mother plant as well. If the mother has a disease, attracts pests, or grows weak branches, its clones will probably have the same issues.
Additionally, every long-time grower will tell you that clones degrade over time.
What are feminized cannabis seeds?
Feminized cannabis seeds will produce only female plants for getting buds, so there is no need to remove males or worry about female plants getting pollinated. Feminized seeds are produced by causing the monoecious condition in a female cannabis plant—the resulting seeds are nearly identical to the self-pollinated female parent, as only one set of genes is present.
This is sometimes referred to as “cloning by seed” and will not produce any male plants. This is achieved through several methods:
- By spraying the plant with a solution of colloidal silver, a liquid containing tiny particles of silver
- Through a method known as rodelization, in which a female plant pushed past maturity can pollinate another female
- Spraying seeds with gibberellic acid, a hormone that triggers germination (this is much less common)
Most experienced or commercial growers will not use feminized seeds because they only contain one set of genes, and these should never be used for breeding purposes. However, a lot of beginning growers start with feminized seeds because they eliminate the worry of having to deal with male plants.
Top feminized cannabis strain families
A lot of classic weed strains that have been around for a while come in feminized form. Some popular fem seeds are:
- OG Kush
- GSC (Cookies)
What are autoflowering cannabis seeds?
Autoflowering seeds are also popular with beginning growers. They are easy to grow because you don’t have to worry about light cycles and how much light a plant receives.
Most cannabis plants begin flowering when the amount of light they receive on a daily basis reduces. Outdoors, this happens when the sun starts setting earlier in the day as the season turns from summer to autumn. Indoor growers can control when a plant flowers by reducing the daily amount of light plants receive from 18 hours to 12 hours.
However, a type of cannabis called Cannabis ruderalis, which developed in extreme northern conditions without much sunlight, will begin flowering once the plant reaches a certain age—they automatically start flowering regardless of the amount of light they receive, hence the name “autoflower.”
Pros and cons of growing autoflower
Because they grow and flower quicker, growers can fit in multiple autoflower cannabis harvests into the span of one regular harvest.
Autoflowers can be started in early spring and will flower during the longest days of summer, taking advantage of high quality light to get bigger yields. Or, if you get a late start in the growing season, you can start autoflowers in May or June and harvest in the fall.
Also, autoflower plants are small—perfect for closet grows or any small grow, or growing outdoors where you don’t want your neighbors to see what you’re up to.
A couple big drawbacks, though: Autoflower strains are known for being less potent. Also, because they are small in stature, they usually don’t produce big yields.
However, potency in autoflowering varieties has increased significantly since their initial introduction, with some breeders crossbreeding the low-THC ruderalis with other more potent varieties.
Tips for growing autoflower marijuana seeds
Autoflowering strains require some preparation, as they will grow quickly and start to flower whether or not you’re ready for them.
Many marijuana growers start autoflowers early in the season, and at a different time than a regular crop, so keep the season and climate in mind when growing and harvesting—your plants still need warmth to grow, and rain can give them bud rot. Consider growing in a greenhouse to protect them.
Because training happens during vegetative growth, for autoflowering plants, this period could be as short as a few weeks, which means time is limited. Try topping your autoflowers after they have three nodes, and stop once they begin to flower. You will want to prune them lightly.
Go easy on nutrients
Autoflowers don’t need lots of nutrients because they’re small and don’t spend much time in the vegetative cycle. They won’t need as much veg nutrients—such as nitrogen—but will need more bloom nutrients.
What are high-CBD cannabis seeds?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the chemical components—known collectively as cannabinoids—found in the cannabis plant. Over the years, humans have selected plants for high-THC content, making cannabis with high levels of CBD rare. The genetic pathways through which THC is synthesized by the plant are different than those for CBD production.
Cannabis used for hemp production has been selected for other traits, including a low THC content, so as to comply with the 2018 Farm Bill. Consequently, many varieties of hemp produce significant quantities of CBD.
As interest in CBD as a medicine has grown, many breeders have crossed high-CBD hemp with cannabis. These strains have little or no THC, 1:1 ratios of THC and CBD, or some have a high-THC content along with significant amounts of CBD (3% or more).
Seeds for these varieties are now widely available online and through dispensaries. It should be noted, however, that any plant grown from these seeds is not guaranteed to produce high levels of CBD, as it takes many years to create a seed line that produces consistent results. A grower looking to produce cannabis with a certain THC to CBD ratio will need to grow from a tested and proven clone or seed.
How to germinate marijuana seeds
Germination is the process in which a seed sprouts and begins to grow into a new plant. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your weed grow.
Marijuana seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality. For more info on how to buy marijuana seeds, check out our Guide to buying cannabis seeds.
Cannabis seeds require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. There are many methods to germinate seeds, but for the most common and simplest method, you will need:
- Two clean plates
- Four paper towels
- Distilled water
Take four sheets of paper towels and soak them with distilled water. The towels should be soaked but shouldn’t have excess water running off.
Take two of the paper towels and place them on a plate. Then, place the marijuana seeds at least an inch apart from each other and cover them with the remaining two water-soaked paper towels.
To create a dark, protected space, take another plate and flip it over to cover the seeds, like a dome.
Make sure the area the seeds are in is warm, somewhere between 70-85°F.
After completing these steps, it’s time to wait. Check the paper towels once a day to make sure they’re still saturated, and if they are losing moisture, apply more water to keep the seeds happy.
Some seeds germinate very rapidly while others can take a while, but generally, seeds should germinate in 3-10 days. If it’s been two weeks and a seed hasn’t sprouted, it’s probably a dud and won’t sprout.
A seed has germinated once the seed splits and a single sprout appears. The sprout is the taproot, which will become the main stem of the plant, and seeing it is a sign of successful germination.
It’s important to keep the delicate seed sterile, so don’t touch the seed or taproot as it begins to split.
Transplanting germinated cannabis seeds
Once you see the taproot, it’s time to transfer your germinated seed into its growing medium, such as soil.
- Fill a 4-inch or one-gallon pot with loose, airy potting soil
- Water the soil before you put the seed in; it should be wet but not drenched
- Poke a hole in the soil with a pen or pencil—the rule of thumb is: make the hole twice as deep as the seed is wide
- Using a pair of tweezers, gently place the seed in the hole with the taproot facing down
- Lightly cover it with soil
Keep a close eye on the temperature and moisture level of the soil to keep the seed happy. It’s very delicate at this stage. Use a spray bottle to water it—over-watering can suffocate and kill the delicate sprout.
Within a week or so you should see a seedling begin to grow from the soil.
Germinating cannabis seeds doesn’t always go as planned. Some seeds will be duds. Others will be slow and take longer to sprout. But some will pop quickly and grow rapidly.
This is the beauty of seeds—often, you can tell which plants or genetics will thrive right from the get-go. This will help you determine which plants you want to take cuttings from for clones or for breeding if you want to create a seed bank of your own.
How to sex a pot plant
Check out Johanna’s full video series on how to grow weed on Leafly’s YouTube .
As we’ve mentioned, cannabis is a dioecious plant, meaning male and female reproductive organs appear on different plants.
Because only female cannabis plants produce buds and you want them to focus all their energy on producing buds and not seeds, it’s important to identify and get rid of male weed plants so they don’t pollinate females. If females are pollinated, it will give you buds filled with seeds, making your weed harsh and unpleasant.
Cultivating males is important for breeders trying to cross new strains and genetics, but most people growing for buds will want to remove the males.
As mentioned above, you can skip the processing of sexing weed plants by growing with feminized seeds or clones.
If growing male and female cannabis seeds, they’ll start to show their sex organs, or “pre-flowers,” after 8-10 weeks from germination.
Cannabis plant sex organs appear on nodes, the points where branches grow off from the main stalk.
Males will have round balls—these will develop into pollen sacs, which will release pollen into the air when mature.
Females will have a round structure with long hairs—these hairs will develop into pistils, which will catch pollen in the air.
Pre-flowers can initially be extremely small and hard to identify with the naked eye, but you can use a magnifying glass to get a better look.
Can I grow a seed I found in a bag of weed?
Finding a cannabis seed in your stash is not ideal, but we’ve all been there before. Although much less common than it once was, it still happens. Sometimes you’ll notice one when grinding down some flower, or you’ll see one pop, spark, and crackle from the heat of a lit bowl.
These are referred to as “bagseeds” and whether or not you can grow one will depend on where it came from.
Is a bagseed good or bad?
Seeds found in finished cannabis buds can develop for a number of reasons. For example, a male plant may have accidentally pollinated a flowering female during the growing process. But more commonly, they’re a sign of stress and can be attributed to high temperatures during the final stages of flowering or an exaggerated spike in climate or environment.
Seeds can also form in plants with genetic disorders or instability, like hermaphrodites—plants that develop both male and female reproductive parts. Generally, stress and genetic disorders are viewed as bad, so temper expectations with any plant you start from a bagseed.
But sometimes you get lucky and find a mature seed in some really nice herb. Strains like the legendary Chemdog wouldn’t be possible without adventurous smokers planting and proliferating the seeds they found in a bag of kind bud.
So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.
Ask yourself a few questions to decide if it’s worth the time and energy to grow the seed.
Was the seed found in good weed?
If you don’t like the flavor, effects, or even the look of the bud, then it’s probably not worth growing.
Are you ready to grow?
Growing marijuana takes a certain level of commitment: time, energy, and financial resources, so be sure you can commit to the whole process.
Is the seed viable?
For a seed to be viable, it must be mature enough to have a completely formed genetic blueprint, and it must be strong enough to germinate and pop through its hard casing and sprout its crucial taproot.
There are a few indicators that will give you a sense of whether the seed is worth germinating.
- Tiger stripes—dark stripes on the seed which resemble veins on a leaf are generally good
- Solid shell—a seed should be able to withstand a little pressure when pinched between your fingers; if it crumbles or cracks, it’s no good
Immature seeds tend to be light in color and have a soft outer shell.
In some cases, even if a seed isn’t completely mature, there’s still a chance it could be viable. But often these are extremely weak, take long to develop, and express other unfavorable characteristics. Growers usually discard weak plants to free up space.
You might also find a mature seed that has been physically damaged through poor handling, like rough trimming. In those cases, it probably isn’t worth the effort to try and germinate the seed.
But if the seed you found looks decent, you might as well germinate it and see what sprouts.
Time to germinate
Viable or not, there’s only one sure way to find out if a bagseed will grow. If you’re simply curious to learn and not as concerned with the overall outcome, you can plant a couple of bagseeds outside and see what happens.
If you’re ready for a more serious approach, make sure you have the space for a proper garden and pop the seeds to see what fruit they bear.
Even if your seed sprouts fast and grows vigorously, it still has roughly a 50/50 chance of being female and producing buds, instead of turning out to be a male.
Remember, once a seed germinates, the real work begins. Sexing, selecting, vegetative growth, flowering, and the eventual harvest all lie ahead.
How to buy cannabis seeds
Cannabis seeds can be found on numerous online seed banks, but note that it is illegal to bring seeds into the US and Customs will seize any cannabis seeds that they find in packages or on a person. In legal and medical states, you may purchase seeds at a dispensary.

1. White Widow – Best Feminized Seeds Overall (Free Shipping)
White Widow has climbed to the very top of our list because it brings the best of Indica and Sativa genetics in a beautiful, silky white package (if you get our drift).
With impressive yields of up to 18 ounces, we’re looking at an easy-to-grow strain that’s perfect for beginners.
Besides, you won’t have to wait that long to harvest your precious buds, as the flowering time is around 9 weeks.
But hey, what about the effect?
That’s where the secret sauce is. Because of the 60% Sativa 40% Indica mix, these high-quality marijuana seeds provide a great balance between “head” and “body” high.
In other words − you’ll be able to relax while still getting stuff done − which makes it an ideal day strain.
Great, and the taste?
Well, the taste is exactly what you’d expect when seeing those beautiful white, sugar-like crystals. It’s sweet, cotton-candy-like, and citrusy − but underneath that coating, it also has some nice pungent and spicy touches.
As for its lineage − White Widow dates back to the 1990s Netherlands, where it was crafted as a hybrid between South Indian Indica and Brazilian Sativa landrace
Finally, indoor growers will be happy as this plant is quite compact despite the large yield, reaching up to 4 feet in height. In other words − you won’t have to prune it much.
2. Purple Kus h – High Potency Female Weed Seeds
The legendary Purple Kush was a shoo-in for our rundown of the best feminized marijuana seeds.
In fact, It’s so popular, that we don’t know any reputable seed bank that doesn’t stock it…
And for a good reason!
With its 25% THC content, Purple Kush is one of the strongest feminized seeds out there. Not to mention that it’s 75% Indica, so get ready for a couch-locking effect.
As the name suggests, these plants are known for their beautiful purple buds and distinctly pungent smell.
Yes. With an average flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks, this plant is easy to grow indoors or outdoors.
That said, it is considered a “low-medium” difficulty, which means it would technically be better suited as your second crop rather than your first.
While the yield isn’t as high as White Widow, it’s still pretty good at up to 14 ounces per plant. Not to mention, the potency more than makes up for it!
3. Bruce Banner – Best Female Weed Seed for Euphoria
As the name suggests, Bruce Banner is famous for delivering a potent, Hulk-like punch.
With 25% THC, expect to get a strong euphoric effect, with a nice head high coming from the 60% Sativa. In other words, this strain is great to to get energized and creative.
This strain can be grown indoors or outdoors in a temperate or Mediterranean climate. Good to know − these cannabis seeds are mold-resistant, so they can take slightly higher humidity levels than most.
Are you an intermediate grower?
If so, Bruce Banner is a great way to hone your stress-training skills. While even beginners should be able to grow it, stress training gives much higher yields.
Talking about yields − expect to get up to 19 ounces per square meter if you give it your all. For complete newbies, 14-15 ounces is a more reasonable goal.
Finally, Bruce Banner is one of the few Cannabis Cup winners, so you know you’re getting a tried and tested strain.
4. Sensi Skunk – High-THC Female Pot Seeds
For seasoned consumers looking for strong effects, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better option than the 28% THC Sensi Skunk .

Yes, these cannabis seeds are known to thrive in the outdoors, with very high yields. That said, they’re better suited to moderate climates, so we wouldn’t recommend them for humid areas.
Speaking of growth − this cannabis strain is not difficult to maintain as long as you get the seeds from reputable online seed banks (more on that below)
Sweet or pungent?
Sweet! Despite being potent, it doesn’t have that earthy pungency of other strains as much as sweet, citrusy flavors.
Finally, while this rare strain isn’t available on all online seed banks − we did find a great deal on Seedsman (link below).
5. Laughing Buddha – Most Popular Feminized Seeds for Good Laughs
As the name suggests…
If you’re sifting through cannabis seed banks searching for feminized strains that will deliver a highly uplifting effect with lots of good laughs, look no further than the Laughing Buddha .
Right off the bat − you may have noticed this strain takes quite longer to grow than most, at around 10-12 weeks
What you may not know, however, is that this is one of the reasons why Laughing Buddha gives massive yields − up to 24 ounces per plant.
Considering it’s easy to grow, with a short height of 3.5 ft that makes it ideal for indoor growing… you can see why it’s such a popular strain.
Does it taste good?
Just kidding − most people will love the sweet and fresh flavors of this strain, which kind of tastes like exotic fruits, with subtle spicy undertones.
Finally, with up to 22% THC, Laughing Buddha has a more manageable potency that makes it perfect for beginners.
6. Hindu Kush – Best Feminizing Seeds for Warm, Dry Climates
Hindu Kush is a genuine treat for fans of 100% Indica plants. It’s a higher-potency plant with 18% THC, ideal for dry and warm areas like Arizona or Texas.
The THC level we mentioned packs a punch but doesn’t require veteran smoking experience; this is more of an intermediate option.
This weed strain is capable of outdoor and indoor growth, reaching short heights of 3 feet and a 14-17 oz yield. The flowering time is pretty fast at 8 weeks.
In terms of vibe, this thing is so calming!
If you want to buy marijuana seeds for relaxation, this is the one. Being a pure Indica strain, it should provide a good “body” high that’s perfect to watch movies or before sleep.
Hindu Kush seeds are available on almost all the best cannabis seed banks, but we found the best deal on ILGM (with free shipping).
7. Green Crack – “Stress-Free” Auto-flowering Feminized Seed Strain
If you are a beginner looking for the easiest cannabis seeds to grow, Green Crack has it all.
Being an auto-flowering strain means you won’t need any specific light cycle − so you already avoid 80% of typical rookie mistakes.
Then, the plant stays quite short at 3 ft high, so you don’t need to have a high roof either.
Now, when it comes to the rewards…
These popular feminized seeds deliver a whopping 18 oz per 3×3 ft − and you won’t even have to wait long for it. In fact, they will produce flowers in 8-9 weeks, which is quite impressive considering the high yields.
Want to know something surprising?
Well, while this strain is technically Indica-dominant… it actually gives more Sativa-like effects. In other words, clarity, focus, and tons of energy.
This means that Green Crack is a great strain for daytime use, and its sweet mango flavor with a pinch of spiciness doesn’t disappoint.
Finally, these are high-THC seeds (20%) so you should get a good kick.
8. Northern Lights – Best High-yield Feminized Weed Seeds
Northern Lights is another classic and a crowd favorite. You’ll recognize it a mile away for its sweet and spicy smell combined with an earthy, sweet flavor.
Highly resistant to disease, the seeds aren’t much of a struggle to grow and can give huge 19 oz yields, especially if you can grow them outdoors in the sunny Mediterranean climate.
Yet, but reasonably so − the THC level of 15% is enough to give nice effects without knocking you out.
We are looking at a 90% Indica 10% Sativa mix, which means it’ll leave you relaxed and slightly creative.
Because of its soothing effects − many people smoke it to relieve stress and muscle tension, and some even use it for anxiety and insomnia.
Finally, with its rapid growth in 7 to 9 weeks, Northern Lights is perfect if you have a short growing season or you just don’t like to wait (who does?)
9. Afghan – Best 100% Indica Feminizing Cannabis Seeds
A purist’s favorite, Afghan is a 100% Indica strain with effects to match.
With 20% THC, the strain is great to unwind after a long day − and it’s known as a couch slammer, so don’t forget to let everyone know you’ll be unavailable for a few hours.
As with most options on our list, Afghan is easy to grow indoors or outdoors. The flowering period isn’t the fastest at 9 weeks, but it’s still pretty reasonable.
Now, when it comes to yields…
Afghan is truly surprising for an Indica, allowing you to get up to 21 oz per plant.
Considering it’s also mold-resistant and easy to adapt to the continental climate, you get a perfect strain for beginners.
All in all, experienced growers agree that there’s nothing as satisfying as growing pure Indica, and the good news is that it’s available on many top seed banks.
10. Grandaddy Purple – Highly Resistant, Potent Feminized Weed Strain
Simply put − if you want to get into Zen mode, go with Granddaddy Purple .
Known for its fruity flavor, this Indica plant is a top-notch choice for beginners, thanks to its high resistance to mold, disease, and pests.
But perhaps most importantly…
Granddaddy purple is known for its THC content that can reach astronomical levels (35%) and awesome yields of up to 28 ounces.
This is all the more surprising considering these results are achieved without any stress training or other advanced techniques.
Much like every Indica, this is a compact, stocky plant that flowers after around 9 weeks.
In terms of effect, Granddaddy Purple has a deeply relaxing delivery from the first puff, which is why it stands out as a clear favorite in the stoner community.
How to Choose the Best Feminized Seeds: Buying Guide
Effect and Potency
In case you’re wondering − yes, feminized seed strains are just as potent as regular seeds.
Like standard seeds, their potency also varies widely from one strain to another.
Therefore, to pick a feminized strain with the right potency for you, you should not only check the THC content (anything above 20% is considered potent) − but also whether the strain is 100% Indica or a hybrid.
Indeed, Indica strains are known for their “couch-lock” effect, whereas Sativas (even with higher THC) are generally more uplifting and boost creativity.
Before you buy marijuana seeds online , be sure to check the growing difficulty of the strain you’re eyeing.
While most feminized weed seeds on our list are easy to grow, some are better suited to experienced growers.
Additionally, auto-flowering seeds don’t even require a specific light cycle − which makes them much easier for indoor growing.
Smell & Taste
When it comes to pot seeds, plants come in all sizes and shapes.
While this section is pretty self-explanatory, it’s always good to take a quick look at the smell and aromas of a specific strain before buying cannabis seeds.
Size & Yield
High-quality seeds are popular for different reasons, and while some have an amazing taste, others just give humongous yields and huge THC content.
Therefore, you always have to find a compromise between the three. That said, the more experienced you become, the higher yields you’ll be able to get.
