What are autoflowering thc cannabis seeds? How are they obtained, and which ones are the best?
They cause a sensation, are significantly in demand and are legal: we are talking about the autoflowering THC cannabis seeds, among the most requested products online and much loved by cannabis connoisseurs!
Today we will focus on the latter, autoflowering marijuana seeds, explaining what they are, what their origins and characteristics are. Let’s get started right away!
What are autoflowering seeds, and why are they called that?
The autoflowering cannabis seeds are seeds that can give life to marijuana plants with high THC content. They are classic hemp seeds, therefore rounded or oblong, of a colour that changes from grey to brown, about 5 mm large.
Although the appearance does not tell any peculiarities of future plants, these are instead extremely particular. Autoflowering cannabis plants (also called automatic or auto) are distinguished from regular plants due to these advantageous characteristics:
- Ability to flower automatically regardless of the current season. These plants do not depend on the photoperiod (the length of the daylight cycle) for flowering because they develop after a specific time.
- Development times significantly shorter than with regular plants. If a traditional cannabis plant takes 6 to 9 months to develop and flower, an auto-flowering seedling will grow in just 2-3 months!
- Medium-low height: about 1 meter in dwarf autos or only over 1.5 meters in XXL autos. On the other hand, regular hemp can go up to 5 meters when it has Sativa genetics and up to 1.80-2 meters when it has Indica genetics.
- Outstanding resistance to parasites, mould, and temperature changes.
- They lend themselves well to all types of cultivation: Indoor, Outdoor and Greenhouse.
Besides, the auto flower seeds BSF are also feminized; this means that they carry exclusively female genes and have over 90% chance of giving birth to female cannabis plants.
Of course, female marijuana plants produce flowers with a high THC content: this is why autoflowering THC marijuana seeds cannot be grown in the UK but only collected.
Let’s now go into the genetics of auto-flowering hemp varieties.
How are autoflowering seeds produced?
You must know that the best seed banks, such as BSF Seeds, carry out extensive studies to create the best products on the market. Not surprisingly, autoflowering cannabis seeds meet the needs that most growers have in common, as they produce plants:
- With a rapid development
- Fast and automatic flowering
- Highly resistant to atmospheric agents, moulds, and insects
- From medium-low stems, therefore cultivable in any environment, even the smallest
Seed banks have come to obtain strains with these extremely advantageous characteristics after studying the peculiarities of Ruderalis cannabis for a long time.
Not surprisingly, auto-flowering seeds are born from the cross between excellent Ruderalis plants (low, resistant, fast and independent of the photoperiod) with plants of Sativa and/or Indica genetics.
The Indica and Sativa’s genetic contribution is fundamental because it determines the high THC content of the plants, the excellent yield in terms of flowers and the characteristic tastes and much appreciated by the admirers of the product.
The automatic seeds varieties in circulation are indeed an infinity, but some stand out remarkably over the others as they are treasured.
