Have you ever bought cannabis seeds and found that they were white instead of the usual brown? You may have heard that white seeds are duds. That they don’t grow as well as “normal” seeds. We are here to nip this myth in the bud! 😉 Read on to find out what the difference is between a white seed and an immature seed and what to expect from your white seed!
The difference between white seeds and immature seeds
It is true that immature seeds will have a low germination rate. The first step is therefore to know the difference between an immature seed and a healthy white seed. Take a look at this image for example:
As you can see in this photo, there are a lot of greenish seeds. (By the way, we found this photo online, it’s not our seeds!) It’s the seeds that are immature. Often, light green seeds are confused with white seeds, and vice versa.
In other words, if your seeds are green or light green, you have a problem. Otherwise, no problem!
Why are some seeds white?
Now that you know how to tell the difference between white seeds and immature seeds, let’s see why some seeds are white, while others are brown or striped. The majority of cannabis strains are indeed brownthis is why there is so much confusion about white seeds.
However, some cannabis strains naturally produce mostly white seeds. Strains such as white widow often produce pale white seeds. Other examples of white seed strains are Super Silver Haze, white queenand Light of Jah. These strains produce more white seeds than normal due to years of breeding. Just as two blue-eyed people are more likely to have blue-eyed children, so are plants. If a strain has a lineage of white seed producing strains, it is more likely to produce white seeds.
Another reason for white seeds can be a genetic mutation. This is why it is perfectly possible to get a white seed from a variety that normally produces brown seeds. Another myth about white seeds is that they will grow into an all-white plant. It is also worth debunking, your white seeds will grow into normal plants. Albino marijuana plants are extremely rare!
Yeah, yeah, okay… But are white seeds any good?
Now it’s time for the million dollar question! Are the white seeds the same quality or are they inferior? The answer might surprise you! From all the tests we’ve done internally, as well as all the tests we’ve seen from our competitors, it turns out that white seeds have the same germination rate and are actually more likely to germinate faster than brown seeds! Because these seeds tend to have a slightly less thick outer shell, this allows the seeds to germinate faster.
So there you have it, folks, the next time you hear someone talk about whiteseeds, you can step in and correct them! In the words of the Notorious BIG, “If you don’t know, now you know!”
