Cannabis Seed Selection Options

Dioecious or Feminized Seed?
Dioecious = have a 50/50 male/female ratio (theoretically)
Feminized = will produce a female plant

Dioecious Seed: Advantages

Can produce pollen of chosen strain
Can offer more varieties to select from

Dioecious Seed: Disadvantages
Male plants will need to be removed (if not breeding)
Plants will have to be cared for that may not produce valuable yield
Will have to purchase more seeds than you need

Feminized Seed: Advantages
Vastly reduce the time spent culling male plants
Purchased seed number can more closely match total plant number
Cost? (Less expensive in some cases)

Feminized Seed: Disadvantages
Limited strain selection options
Can not use the seeds if you are a breeder
Potential negative impact on chemical profile
Cost? (More expensive in some cases)
