Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD from hemp is now federally legal. This is a huge opportunity for farmers looking to increase their revenue without expanding their land. Of course, because CBD comes from cannabis (in this case, hemp) flowers only, the best way to increase revenue is by growing female-only (a.k.a. feminized) hemp seeds.
Feminized Hemp Seeds Explained
Feminized hemp seeds are seeds that only grow female plants. Breeders produce feminized hemp seeds by carefully stressing female plants. When mature female hemp plants are stressed, they produce seeds to help preserve their genetic line. The seeds produced by a stressed female hemp plant contain the same genetic makeup as their mother, including only female chromosomes. Feminized hemp seeds tend to be larger and sturdier, though their most significant advantage is their lack of pollen.
High CBD Hemp Seeds
Pollen is the cannabis male plant’s reproductive mechanism. When mature, male hemp plants release pollen in search of a female recipient. When pollinated, female hemp plants produce seeds causing them to focus their energy on creating the next generation of hemp plants instead of the valuable hemp flowers most CBD hemp farmers seek. Pollinated females produce considerably lower cannabinoid levels as they turn their effort toward seed production in place of potent CBD flowers.
Why Choose Female Hemp Seeds
At first glance, feminized hemp seeds may seem like a steep price to pay compared to “regular” hemp seeds, but we assure you, female hemp seeds return (ROI) is well worth it. First, growing female-only hemp seeds means there is no risk of male hemp plants pollinating females (unless a careless neighbor grows male hemp plants close to a female crop). A strictly female hemp crop means that every plant grown will produce potent CBD flowers and no seeds.
Furthermore, growing feminized hemp seeds reduces the processing time by omitting the need to de-seed the plants. The entire flower can be cured and sold as-is or sent to an extraction facility for further refinement. Aside from large plant stalks, the whole plant is eligible for top-of-the-market pricing with no biomass lost due to seed removal.
Essentially, when you grow female hemp seeds, your effort will be smaller, but your return will be higher.
