Regular cannabis seeds produce roughly equal numbers of male and female offspring. Regular seeds are sometimes preferred by old school growers seeking to grow both male and female plants, perhaps for their own breeding experiments.

Regular seeds give rise to roughly 50% male and 50% female cannabis plants. The female plants produce buds, the male cannabis plants produce pollen. Those that prefer to grow from regular seeds tend to be old school growers as well as those that want to produce their own crosses and hybrids.
Dutch Passion maintain a large collection of regular seeds to help preserve the best of the original genetic lines. Many smaller seed companies and private breeders have used Dutch Passion's regular seeds as the basis for their own breeding projects.
Regular cannabis seeds are completely natural marijuana seeds and that is part of their appeal. They are not altered or changed in any way to favour the production of female plants.
Regular cannabis seeds are produced when pollen from a male cannabis plant fertilises a mature female plant. The joining of male and female genetics allows the process of seed production to begin. The resulting seeds will be regular cannabis seeds, unless the grower is confident enough to tackle the sophisticated work required to produce either feminized seeds or autoflower seeds.
Unlike feminised cannabis seeds, regular seeds will produce around 50% male and 50% female plants. Male plants can be discarded or the pollen from them can be used or collected/frozen for later use.
Regular cannabis seeds are the most natural form of cannabis seeds. Dutch Passion regular seeds are pure genetics, bred from stable male and female parents. Regular seeds deliver genetics the way nature intended, producing healthy crops of both male and female plants.
Most cannabis growers cultivate cannabis plants simply for consumption and enjoyment. But when some cannabis growers find an exceptional cannabis plant they keep it and use it as the basis for their own future hybrids. All they need is some male pollen to dust over the female buds and (regular) seeds will be formed. The Dutch Passion regular seed collection allows you to grow male plants from all of our legendary classic varieties and produce your own seeds.
Many growers have never seen a mature male cannabis plant in real life. Thanks to feminised seeds it’s possible to grow cannabis without the hassle of male plants. But for those cannabis connoisseurs who find all aspects of cannabis cultivation a great pleasure, growing regular seeds is the most enjoyable way to grow.
Not all growers like to use regular seeds. Typically regular seeds account for just 2-3% of seed sales, but it is often the most serious and professional of growers that tend to buy and use regular seeds. Dutch Passion’s collection of regular seeds dates back to the 1980’s and earlier. If you are looking for authentic, original cannabis genetics from back in the day then you won't find a better collection of regular seeds.
Legendary classics such as White Widow, Orange Bud, Blueberry, Mazar, Power Plant, Skunk #1, Durban Poison, Euforia and many others are available in Dutch Passion regular seeds. These represent some of the finest old school genetics with deeply enjoyable effects.

Regular cannabis seeds grow in the same way as photoperiod feminised seeds. The only real difference is that you can expect around half your seeds to turn into male cannabis plants. Often regular seed growers are experienced growers who are exploring breeding possibilities and may be interested in producing their own regular seeds by pollinating a female plant.
1. Using separate grow areas
Those that grow regular seeds will often have separate grow areas for male and female plants. Male plants are usually separated to prevent any accidental/unintended pollen release in the female plant area.
2. Using fresh pollen or storing it
If breeding, decide whether you are using fresh pollen or cold-store it for later use. Some breeders will place a male plant in a grow room surrounded by several female plants to receive the fresh pollen. As the male pollen is released it is spread around the grow room by fans. Other breeders prefer to collect male pollen and cool store it in jars, they apply it to female plants with a small paint brush when convenient. Pollen can be bought online, but serious regular seed growers strongly prefer to buy their own seeds so they can be sure of the genetics.
3. Making your own seeds
By brushing pollen from a male plant against a female plant fertilisation is achieved and seeds will start to form. The resulting seeds are regular, they will give rise to a mix of male and female offspring. If you want to make feminised seeds, or autoflower seeds it starts to get much more complicated!
4. Same grow techniques as fem seeds
Use the same nutrients and approach to growing as you would normally do for feminised seeds. But note that male plants may mature slightly earlier than the females and be a little taller. The extra height of the male plants makes it easier for the pollen to fall down on the slightly shorter female plants.
Power Plant grown from seed to harvest under 12/12 lighting for high quality results and cost savings.
5. Pollen can be frozen and stored
Pollen can be collected by gently shaking the male pollen sacs over a small container. It is vital to ensure the container is dry, moisture will damage the pollen. Once in a dry container, the pollen can be frozen where it will remain viable for several years. As previously mentioned, cannabis pollen can be bought on the internet but it is always a gamble buying a critical material which you can make yourself easily and cheaply. Most people apply pollen with a small paint brush. If you have a couple of different types of pollen you can apply them carefully to different branches of the female plant. The seeds formed on the different branches will have different male genetics. It’s an easy way to get a couple of slightly different seed varieties from the same female.
