Why There Is A Seed In Your Bud

Aired on: 2013.03.17

Why are there sometimes seeds in your nuggets? Is it a bad thing? Can you germinate them? How does this phenomenon reflect on quality of bud?

Today on Lex's world we answer all these questions. The seeds in your buds are known as 'bagseeds' and they are a symptom of either a female Cannabis plant getting pollinated or of a plant becoming a hermaphrodite, then being harvested. The seeds are perfectly safe to smoke and don't need to be picked out. They can also be germinated but typically have a higher failure & hermaphrodite rate than seed bank seeds. Having seeds in weed also doesn't mean the weed is lower or higher quality. The reason for seed presence may be genetic in nature and can be found on excellent weed. However, *sometimes* having seeds in the weed is a bad reflection on the grower because to cause a plant to hermaphrodite, when it isn't genetically pre-disposed to it, you must put it under stress and make mistakes.

****UPDATE: in this episode I made a reckless statement that I wasn't comfortable with; that bagseeds, on average, have a worse germination success RATE than seedbank seeds...this was an educated guess, not a tested fact. Due to my lack of comfort with the statement I created a quick experiment and recorded the results in this episode: Germination Rate Experiment: Bagseeds Vs Seedbank.
