Pollinated female cannabis plants spend a lot of their energy on producing seeds. But unless you are a breeder and require the seeds, this is not what you want. Unfertilised females don’t produce seeds, but instead spend energy on producing resin. As such, seedless buds have higher levels of cannabinoids and aromatic substances—they are more potent and will taste better.
In the past, long before cannabis cultivation in the West was established, cannabis and hash were almost exclusively imported. Dried flowers usually came from Mexico, where cannabis was grown in the wild without the care and tech of today’s grow operations. A lot of the imported “grass” had plenty of seeds in it, so it wasn’t really what one would consider quality bud.
WHY IS SEEDLESS CANNABIS BETTER?
In the same way that some weed lovers in the UK freely use the word “Skunk” to describe top-notch bud, so too do some folks use “sinsemilla” to describe special varieties of super-potent weed that come from places like Amsterdam. Here’s what sinsemilla really means.
Once breeders found out that separating male plants from the females resulted in seedless buds of much better quality, we never looked back.
It is thought that the word sinsemilla was coined in the 1970s, around the time when cultivation started ramping up in the US and Europe. Here it was used to differentiate seedless weed from the poorer stock. As the “new” weed was indeed better and more potent, this gave rise to the misconception of sinsemilla being a different, very strong variety of cannabis.

The word sinsemilla was derived from two Spanish words: “sin” which means without and “semilla” which means seed, so it just means “without seed”. Unlike what many people think, sinsemilla weed does not refer to a specific strain.
The extra metabolic energy that would have been dedicated to seed production is considered as a factor contributing to the increased potency. Cannabinoids are a component of the stick resin that forms on the outside of the bracts, the part which holds the seeds.
The Biology Behind Sinsemilla
The plants are usually grown indoors, under a greenhouse condition using hydroponic techniques. This is to avoid fertilization of the female cannabis plant. We all know that after fertilization seeds are formed. This should not happen if you intend to nature a sinsemilla weed plant.
The increased cannabinoid production in a sinsemilla weed plant is clear when looking at available data that track cannabis potency from the last 20 years. The critical factor that necessitated the increase of potency of cannabis is the increase in the proportion of high potency seedless cannabis.
Sinsemilla is just a synonym for feminized cannabis. Today, weed is grown in controlled environments, making it easier for growers to ensure that their plants are entirely female.
Whether a veteran or newbie in the cannabis world, you will realize that you are a little hazy to respond if anyone asked you, “What is sinsemilla?” Well, some people describe it as a prime, seedless cannabis flower that has been grown with utmost care, while others believe that sinsemilla weed is pure strains of extremely potent marijuana that is grown in the American Southwest and some parts of Amsterdam.
