1. Modern Auto-Flowering Feminized Cannabis seeds are easy to grow. If you choose reliable seed bank.
In short the introduction of Cannabis Ruderalis has been a proverbial ‘game-changer’. Early crosses from the 1980’s left a lot to be desired as the Ruderalis genetics were still strong. However modern auto-flower seeds are what are used by commercial growers and offer many benefits vs. Feminized Photoperiod strains. Feminized strains require much more management, both in time and resources than auto-flowering plants do, Additionally the long growing periods of regular or feminized seeds make them prone to a myriad of potential ailments & problems.
Most if not all these potential problems can be eliminated by growing auto-flowers. Which, because of their speed are simply too fast for these ailments to establish. Auto seeds are by definition feminized the only difference being that, Autos automatically switch to flower, normally 3-4 weeks after germination, they do this irrespective of light conditions / hours. It’s in their genes.
The key is to purchase wisely, please feel free to compare our prices and remember these are seeds produced in an industrial setting for commercial purposes.

2. Modern Auto-Flowering Feminized Cannabis Seeds can be grown Cheaply
Contrary to popular belief, modern auto-flowering weed does not require an expensive set-up, with lights, dehumidifiers, extractors, and chemical fertilizers, etc. As it turns out, modern autos thrive in organic outdoor conditions with natural sunlight. If you have good soil you’re typically good to go and can achieve remarkable results just by popping them in the ground. No electric light can compete with the power of the sun and it’s free.
If you have an unlimited budget to spend on hardware and electricity for lights, fans, etc. Then you’re well on your way to achieving a great harvest. Please check back here for our article on how to grow marijuana cheaply indoors.
3. Modern Auto-Flowering Feminized Cannabis Seeds are very Potent – Provided you buy from a reliable seed bank.
The more so the better, right? Seed breeders have for decades been selectively breeding strains to maximize speed, yield and the THC or CBD content, and they are wonderfully aromatic. The key is to choose a strain that suits your needs. You can choose between a pure Sativa, like the world-famous South African Landrace, Durban Poison, or a pure Indica, like the equally famous Hindu Kush. Or even one of the many hybrids of both.
Then there are also “CBD Strains” with higher levels of CBD and low levels of THC, less than 1%, like our Elixir CBD. They don’t get you high but have all the medical Benefits.
Modern auto-flowering strains, like those available here at Feed a Seed, are just as potent as regular or feminized strains.
With THC levels of up to 30% and CBD levels in excess of 20%, modern auto-flowering cannabis strains have truly come of age. No matter your preferred ‘pony’, you can rest assured that modern auto-flowering feminized seeds produce truly potent weed.
4. Modern Auto-Flowering Cannabis Seeds are much Faster than Feminized Seeds
The crossing of Cannabis Ruderalis with either Cannabis Sativa or Indica or with a hybrid. Results in a plant that automatically switches to flower 3-4 weeks after sprouting. Combine this with the traits of fast-growing specimens of any strain and you have a winning recipe. This means that some auto-flowering weed strains are ready for harvest just 55 days after sprouting. Longer strains can take up to 90 days before harvesting. This stands in stark contrast to the up-to 270 days or sometimes even more that photo-period plants can take to mature.
5. Modern Autos produce relatively Massive Yields
Whilst it is true that you can’t create something out of nothing, and that auto-flowering strains because of their shorter growing period, therefore naturally deliver lower yields than their slower-growing photo-period cousins do. This is a typical tortoise and hare scenario though. With yields of up to 500 grams per plant or more in roughly 70 days, from strains like Cheese, we would argue that it is much of a muchness. If you consider the timespan and yield of an auto-flower with that of a feminized photoperiod seed or plant, auto-flowers are without a doubt, the thoroughbreds of the cannabis seed world. It is in their genes to sprint all the way to the finish line. This leads us to our next point…
6. Modern Auto Seeds produce plants are extremely hardy
Gone are the days when hybrids were not at all that stable, and were prone to all manner of ailments and diseases, and vulnerable to insect infestation. As mentioned above, the speed of growth of modern auto-flowers means that they simply avoid many of the pitfalls of longer grows. Modern autos are the product of selective breeding programs that have isolated characteristics that eliminate problems common to those strains. Additionally, if you follow an organic grow program you will enhance your plant’s natural resistance. Or what’s called SAR, systemic acquired resistance. In this way, auto-flowers lend themselves to organic growing methods. Which are beneficial to the environment and your health.
7. Modern Auto-flowering seeds are adaptable and versatile
Whether you would like to grow indoors, in a greenhouse or outdoors, in a pot, or even in the ground, it doesn’t matter. Auto-flowering weed can be grown in a wide range of situations and climatic conditions. Indica strains typically do better in cooler climates and Sativas in warmer climates.
If for climatic reasons or for reasons of discretion you need to grow indoors then modern auto seeds are perfect. Simply Buy Auto-Flowering Feminized Cannabis Seeds / Strains that are less lanky strain and grow them indoors.
If you live in a Mediterranean climatic zone, you have the best of both worlds, Sativas in the summer and Indicas in the winter. This is no hard and fast rule though and the point is that you can grow when and where you want to. What does matter is the quality of your substrate, the size of your pots, the bigger the better, your watering regime, and of course light.
8. Modern Auto-flowering Feminized Cannabis Seeds can give you several crops a year.
Because of their short, germination to harvest period, with flowering happening irrespective of light conditions, and the fact that most strains can cope with a wide range of climatic conditions. In Mediterranean or warmer climates, most strains can be grown throughout the year. In cooler climates frost, and in hot humid climates, excessive rain, would be your only enemies. Avoid those and you can grow, grow, grow…Autos can cope with as little as 8 hours of light a day. That’s why Autos are the answer if you need outdoor harvests all year round.
9. CBD is your friend
Many people mistakenly believe that because autoflowering seeds have been crossed with Ruderalis, which is essentially high in CBD, that autoflowering germs produce plants that are are also high in CBD and lack THC. Nothing could be further from the truth. Most autos have THC levels that are off the charts, and that will blow your socks off. Some strains are high in CBD, but surely it is a case of horses for courses. Do you really want to turn down the Girl Scout Cookies because they have a sprinkling of CBD? No, because CBD has been shown to be beneficial for a plethora of medical conditions. CBD is your friend.
