Can You Tell Whether A Cannabis Plant Will Be Male Or Female By Just Looking At The Seed?

sexing cannabis seeds

Does the size, weight, shape, or appearance of a cannabis seed, or any other factor about a cannabis seed indicate what sex the resulting plant will be?

Or the type of plant…auto-flower, Indica, Sativa, or Ruderellis?

How about the potency of the plant you will grow, can you tell how potent the resulting plant will be?

The quick answer is….I think not. The longer answer is, but I’m am not actually sure. This question has been asked by many marijuana growers, but think about it…If you could determine the sex of the plant by the seed, they would not take all the time and energy to produce feminized seed.

Cannabis seeds come in many sizes and shapes, some are determined by the type of cannabis (to a point), but it seems only certain plants, and it does not seem to hold true to differentiate Sativa from Indica, nor Autoflowering cannabis from any other cannabis.

Hell, you can grow two of the same plants, one big and healthy with big fat seeds, anther plant from the same seeds can be small and spindly, and the seeds it produces can be small as well.

Health and longevity of the plant’s cycle determined the size of the seeds as well…in my experience.

I guess Dutch Passion came up with the very first feminized cannabis plants in the ’90s. Feminization was a great tool for cannabis bud growers. No more wasting time on growing males out till they showed sex, and then having to dispatch half the crop you just grew

I personally have grown great crops of cannabis from small very undersized seed and big fat first seeds. Too, when one is producing seed the very first seeds the plant makes generally become much bigger and fatter than the seeds produced later in the seed cycle.

I will be doing a fairly extensive experiment as I grow out about 10-20 strains of auto-flowers this spring. I will compare the seeds, try to pick which will be male and female. I will mark all of them, grow them out and post my results here…be sure to bookmark or follow to see those results.

I’m looking forward to it and it should be interesting!
