Dear Stoner: I find occasional seeds in good dispensary weed, and I’ve held on to a few. What would happen if I put them in potted soil on my windowsills? Would it be any good? I don’t have neighbors around me. I just want to experiment. So i bought some of my local dispensaries top shelf bud 5 grams for 60$. I've smoked a lot danker weed in my days but with that being said it was still some… When a single seed shows up in a bud it is usually the result of a stressed female plant that created a pollen sac to pollinate herself.
Ask a Stoner: What Should I Do With the Rare Seed I Find in Good Weed?

Dear Seed Saver: It sounds like you already have your answer. Will it be cheap and easy? Yes. Will those nugs be mids compared to the plants they came from? Also yes. but who cares? Water, good dirt and sunlight will definitely grow something in those pots. You might as well find out, since you don’t need to worry about a pesky neighbor peering through your windows. Free weed is free weed, my friend.
You’ll need a few cycles under your belt before trying a cannabis bonsai tree (it’s exactly what it sounds like), but you can still experiment plenty with seeds. Research different cannabis nutrients, and try different soils, growing mediums, window placements and flowering times. The fun part about growing weed is the science projects. All you need is patience — and space, if you keep this up.

Found a few seeds in DANK bud. I have a few questions about growing it.
So i bought some of my local dispensaries top shelf bud 5 grams for 60$. I’ve smoked a lot danker weed in my days but with that being said it was still some DANKKKK. (Its “Fortune cookies” suppose to be somewhat similar to GSC)
This dispensary is known for having some dank ass strains but some of them are half assed (pulled to early or late, not cured properly, sparkling bud (only once. ), But the top shelf is usually bomb. And in this 5gram sack ive found 4 beautiful seeds and I’ve got about half of the sack left so maybe more.
My questions are:
Was this weed most likely grown outside? (thats what ive been hearing)
Will the weed i grow from this seed also have herm tendencies?
Can i breed the herm tendencies out by pollinating a true female plant or is it unlikely?
Also not sure if anyone has had experience growing out anything in the GSC family.. but i hear these strains have a tendency to herm easily. Also hear its best grown indoor but i wana do a SOCAL outdoor run. Any idea how the quality would be effected even if grown with care outdoors?
Hello, I recently found a single seed in a bud of Vanilla Kush from a local dispensary. My question is, is that a female seed automatically, or is it 50/50 that it could be a male? I plan to plant it in a single grow. Just curious about finding a single seed in a bud. Thank you. — Regards, John
Thank you for your question. When a single seed shows up in a bud it is usually the result of a stressed female plant that, in a last-ditch effort, created a pollen sac to pollinate herself. Breeders actually use this process (what they call rodelization) to produce female seeds. The self-pollinated seeds receive both sets of genes from the same female plant which means all resulting seeds will be female. In most cases, if the female plant is pollinated by a male plant, more than one seed would develop. Although I can’t tell you with 100 per cent certainty one way or another, I would guess the seed you found is a result of the female plant pollinating herself and that your seed is feminized. Hope this helps.
