In the past, weed was full of seeds making for a harsh smoking experience and relatively low THC.
At this time, sinsemilla came to mean more than weed that was high in THC. In the 1970s, sinsemilla was described as a method of growing marijuana. Growers prevented the female plant’s flowers from coming into contact with pollen from a male plant. Doing so removed the possibility of fertilization and the development of seeds in the female plants.
When Did We First Gain Access to Sinsemilla?
When we discuss potency, we are talking about the level of THC in the plant. One possible reason for this increase could be that people didn’t know how to store cannabis well years ago. When the herb is improperly stored, its THC degrades.
Modern marijuana consumers in America are a fortunate breed. Those who live in a state where marijuana is legal for recreational use now have the access that eluded previous generations.
What Is Sinsemilla?
The increase in the quality of weed is mainly down to legality and availability. However, cannabis cultivators have also learned more effective and efficient growing techniques.
Female: Two pistils (the pistil contains the reproductive parts of a flower) will be growing on the buds (flowers grow above these leaves, one cluster on each side).
How to tell if your plant is a male or female
Our phone lines are open from 9am-5pm central time, Monday through Friday. Our staff is working remotely wherever possible and we will maintain a bare minimum staff on-site to perform basic operations of order processing and accounting. Our on-site staff will follow the appropriate best practices and guidelines set forth by OSHA’s latest release of "Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19."
Male: Small green sacs full of pollen will be seen on the node areas.
Cannabis Growth Timeline
Cannabis growth is made up of a series of stages that plants undergo during their lifecycle. Each stage during the cannabis cultivation process requires its own unique demands, including different levels of light, water, and nutrients.
2. Seedling Stage
It can take anywhere from 4 to 8 months to grow a cannabis plant, this varies based on where you’re growing. If you have an indoor grow room, your plant has the ability to flower after only a few weeks!
These are unprecedented times and we are committed to protecting both our employees and our communities. Clean air has never been more important, and we’re making sure our customers have everything they need. From those working from home who need high quality air filters, to the other essential businesses we supply products to, we’re here for you.
Have you ever purchased seedy weed? Let us know in the comments below!
High-quality weed is important when you invest your hard earned money in what you smoke. There are a handful of things that can decrease your bud quality, one of which is finding seeds in your weed.
Before we get into the nitty gritty, let’s cover some basics. Seeds are what you get after pollination occurs. Cannabis flower (buds) are produced from the female plant. If you find seeds in your bud, that means the female cannabis plant came into contact with some pollen from the male plant, which results in your plant getting fertilized and producing seeds.

If you’re looking at your weed and you’ve noticed it has seeds in it, it’s important to figure out why. This will help to determine whether or not it’s bad they are there. There are two main reasons why you may have seeds in your weed.
The term sinsemilla is derived from the Spanish words “sin” (meaning “without”) and “semilla” (meaning “seed”) to mean as stated, without seed. This word has been associated with seedless cannabis flower since the 1970’s in North America but there is some evidence of it dating back further to countries like India! To clear up a few myths; sinsemilla is NOT a strain or genetics. It’s a female cannabis plant that has not been exposed to male plants (aka not fertilized).
Why This Matters
Growing from home allows you to control many factors, so you can expect higher quality cannabis. If you are able to grow indoors, theres an even lower chance of your cannabis plants getting fertilized, as you would have to have the males in the tent/ grow box with them! When using a Grobo, you never have to worry about male plants being too close to your females.
If the male is not removed in a timely fashion your female plants could become pollinated and start growing seeds. These seeds are part of the natural process and can be used to start a new grow. Careful, 50% of them will be males! Did you also know that cannabis seeds are a superfood? You can survive by eating just seeds!
