What Is Feminized Hemp Seed?
In layman’s terms, feminized hemp seeds are all “female” and act and behave like a female plant (producing High-CBD flower). Feminized hemp seeds are ones that have been produced from female hemp plants that have been forced or coaxed into producing male flowers.
Since the hemp plants chosen for creating the seeds are female to begin with, forced male flowers on these plants will carry almost all X chromosomes and the seeds resulting from a self pollination will yield female plants at a rate of about 99%.
These feminized seeds will carry a double XX chromosome instead of the standard XY split that results from traditional pollination from a male plant. The result is female plants capable of producing High-CBD levels.
How Is Hemp Seed Feminized?
Feminized hemp seeds can be produced in a number of ways:
Most simply, female plants may be left to grow un-pollinated far beyond their natural harvest date, which will then cause many varieties of cannabis to throw out male flowers in response to the stress.
As the female plant reaches its maturity, and has still not been able to fulfill its mission to reproduce and create seeds, it then resorts to whatever measures it has to take to ensure its future generations through self pollination accomplished by producing its own male flowers.
However not all strains of cannabis will produce male flowers predictably in this fashion, making this process of feminization less feasible on a commercial scale. As well, the percentage of female to male seeds will be lower than what can be achieved utilizing other methods.
A more reliable and commonly used method of creating feminized seed is to apply a solution of colloidal silver and other chemicals to select female plants which, in turn, will also stimulate the production of male flowers in cannabis. This is accomplished by suppressing the female hormones in the plant as it is being pushed over into the flowering phase.
The pollen then produced by these male flowers would in turn be considered feminized pollen and will carry almost 100% female chromosomes. Any female flowers subsequently pollinated with this pollen will produce nearly 100% female offspring utilizing this technique.
Cost to Farmers - Female vs Male Hemp Plants 101
We won’t go into hermaphrodites here, we’ll keep it simple with the males and females!
If a female hemp plant is not fertilized, the energy of the plant will go to making the cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, THC, etc.) in its flowers. This is good! High-CBD Female flowers are the desired product for smokables and extraction. Conversely, male hemp plants are a nuisance to High-CBD farmers as they can pollinate neighbors and devalue their crop. Males produce pollen that fertilize female plants (and can for miles around) and their flowers produce very low levels of cannabinoids. If a female plant is fertilized, the energy of the plant will go to producing seeds instead of cannabinoids.
A fertilized (seeded) crop can be a costly disaster for a farmer for two main reasons:
1) Seeds are NOT desirable in smokables.
2) The value of the plant is typically determined by CBD levels. If the plant is producing seeds, it’s not producing CBD! Biomass is typically priced per percentage point of CBD. If a fertilized (seeded) crop drops even 2% CBD, that can add up over the crop. And as you’ll read below, a seedless crop is preferred for extraction.
This feminization process must be carried out using carefully selected mother plants in order to reduce the prevalence of hermaphroditism in seeds created in this manner.
Cannabis plants will naturally show hermaphroditic traits across various phenotypes, thus seeds produced from plants with hermaphroditic genetic traits beget more hermaphroditic offspring… instead of the desired 99% and above ratio of females plants obtained from proper feminization.
Mother plant selections from proven genetics are crucial for this reason in the creation of stable, predictable, feminized seed stock with a low prevalence of hermaphroditic expressions.
Can Feminized Seeds be Certified Organic?
The short answer is, yes. However, most feminized seed is not certified organic as the most reliable methods of feminization would not qualify as an organic method. The seed does not necessarily need to be certified so long as it is not treated or coated. Please check with your certifying agency for more details.
High CBD Industrial Hemp Seeds
“High CBD” feminized hemp seeds are produced by selecting high CBD, low THC cultivars of industrial hemp or cannabis and using one of the above processes in order to produce a feminized seed with the desired genetic profile.
CBD seeds of this nature were virtually impossible to find as little as a decade ago, where much of the emphasis by breeders was previously placed upon fiber production for industrial hemp strains and high THC content for recreational marijuana strains.
Benefits Of Feminized Industrial Hemp Seeds
The overall benefit to using feminized industrial hemp seed over traditional mixed sex seed is that it reduces the cost of producing an all female crop while avoiding the often high alternative cost of relying upon female clones as starters. *Bulkanna will begin sales of both high CBD and high CBG tissue culture clones in Spring 2020.
Seeds go from roughly a 50/50 male/female split with traditional seed stock, to an over 99% female output, reducing the number of males that must be pulled from the crop in order to avoid pollination of the female plants in the room or field.
High quality feminized hemp seed will yield less than 1% male plants.
Seedless Flowers Are Preferred For Extractions
Female unseeded cannabis flowers—known traditionally as Sensimilla in the marijuana world— are prized for extraction over flowers that have been allowed to go to seed due to the increases in the unpollinated plants resin and cannabinoid production.
Most high CBD hemp genetics are being grown for CBD oil production in particular, so in this case, pure female unseeded flowers are most desired for oil extractions.
In the end, a feminized seed crop is easier to grow and sell.
Stable Seed Stock Critical For Industrial Hemp Classification
Finally, it is critical that hemp seed is properly feminized in order to maintain the genetic stability and purity of the strains so that a proper end cannabinoid ratio may be obtained for full compliance under the 2014 & 2018 Farm Bills.
All Bulkanna industrial hemp seeds are bred to produce hemp plants that reliably test at less than the legally required .3% THC. (This does not mean set-it-and-forget-it for a farmer. They must still pay careful attention to the crops as they mature under a host of differing environmental conditions. Farmers should test early and often to ensure their crops are under legal THC limits.)
Certificates of cannabinoid analysis may be obtained for all of our high CBD and CBG industrial hemp seed genetics.

USDA Hemp Rule Compliance
High-CBD hemp seeds can be compliant if harvested at the appropriate time. There is a risk with any of these seeds that the plants may become non-compliant with respect to Total THC levels due to any number of environmental and genetic factors. As a result, High-CBD plants may not be able to reach their full maturity before they become non-compliant with the USDA’s proposed rules for hemp posted at the end of 2019.
To be compliant with the proposed USDA Hemp Rule, testing must occur 15 days prior to completion of harvest with a DEA registered laboratory and the plants Total THC level (THC + (THCA * 0.877)) must be 0.3% or less. Farmers should test cannabinoid levels at the beginning of, and throughout the flowering cycle to ensure compliance.
Bulkanna does not consult with farms post-sale with respect to farming practices, or in matters of compliance.
Farm Bill Compliant
Our industrial hemp seed is 2018 Farm Bill compliant and sourced from select strains of USA grown, organically farmed, high CBD certified industrial hemp. All Bulkanna feminized hemp seeds for sale are bred to produce hemp plants that reliably test at less than the legally required .3% THC level for industrial hemp designation, provided the plants are monitored and harvested at the proper time.
