Modern advances in marijuana cultivation technology have led to the development of ways to naturally feminize marijuana plants such as Rodelization and artificial ways by using chemicals where silver thiosulfate and colloidal silver methods are used. Feminization is the method to ensure that marijuana seeds are guaranteed to be female which is the sex of the plant that produces bud which naturally contains more Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than male plants like using Tiresias mist in making feminized seeds.
Feminized plants come from feminized seeds that are produced by inducing gender change in a female plant. This gender change is induced by putting the plants into stress that makes it release ethylene. This ethylene release is then suppressed which triggers the female plant to develop pollen sac which contains pollen that has 100 percent female traits that will result in 100 percent female seeds that will grow into female plants.
