Growing female marijuana is not only the concerns and problems regarding the issues of weather, location, and type of breed that you are having. One of the major issues that concern marijuana growth aside from the mentioned factors is the gender of the pots. Below are some of the problems faced by the growers who wanted female cannabis because of its high THC level. 

Mixing up of Two Genders 

Growers are aware of cannabis gender but they are unsecured when their characteristics showed up. This means that the plant is a hermaphrodite, growers take a risk by mixing hermaphrodite with female marijuana. Most of the time, the hermaphrodite pollinates the female pot and growers who are after the buds will not want it.

Growing Tall Faster than the Usual for growing female marijuana

The flowering stage of female marijuana comes with a dramatic increase in height. It becomes a problem since some marijuana indoor growers are not prepared for this situation. The best way to know what breed of female marijuana you are growing is to research about its maximum height.

Unexpected Pollination

This happens when the grower failed to segregate male marijuana and hermaphrodite cannabis from female marijuana. Segregation is not the only way for “no pollination” rule because wind can transfer the male pollen to the female cannabis. So it is better to isolate the cannabis with different gender away from each other.

No Boys Allowed

Buying marijuana seeds and marijuana cuttings, you need to know the gender of the weed. The reason why medical marijuana smokers prefer female cannabis because of it’s highest level of THC among any gender. The only purpose of male marijuana is for seed production through pollination.


Harvesting is not part of growing, this phase of female marijuana life is vital. It is best if you harvest the marijuana on time to retain the high level of its THC.
