How are Feminized Seeds Made?
Feminized seeds are created through genetic manipulation. Over the last few decades, one of growers' goals has been to boost the presence of female plants as male ones have poor psychoactive effects. The idea was to modify the plants to make sure their descendants would always be XX. Initially, this was done by adding high concentrations of gibberellin, a natural hormone that dictates plants' gender, but the method wasn’t as reliable as expected. Nowadays, using (STS (silver thiosulfate) is way more effective as it lowers hermaphroditism risk within the crop.

However, there are plenty of differences that make them more or less suitable depending on what the grower is seeking for. Without a doubt, feminized seeds are practical and easy to grow, providing great yields without taking the risk of a possible male ruining the entire crop.
