It will take you a lot of time and money, and many attempts and failures before you learn how to grow high-quality cannabis. One of the most controversial questions every weed grower will eventually face is whether you should use marijuana clones or seeds. WeedGrowHub will tell you about the most significant benefits and drawbacks of marijuana seeds and clones.
Using weed clones seems to be the easiest way to grow a healthy and fruitful cannabis plant. This technique has a lot of benefits.
However, cannabis clones are not the ultimate way to a high-quality product. This technique has its drawbacks and you better be ready to deal with each of them. First of all, beside inheriting the potency and flavor of the mother plant, a cloned plant also inherits all the diseases and pests. So, in order to avoid further problems and protect yourself from losing all the potential harvest, you need to make sure that your clone comes from a healthy plant. The best and easiest way to do that is to clone your own plants or to buy weed clones only in the legal marijuana dispensaries.
Secondly, it is not the best growing technique for a beginner. You need to have some advanced marijuana growing skills in order to be able to take care of your cloned plants.
And thirdly, in contrast to seeds, marijuana clones do not respond well to a long-distance shipment. It can take weeks before a damaged clone will recover and start growing in full force if it will recover in the first place.
When it comes to using marijuana seeds, the most significant benefits are:
As for the downsides of this technique, the most disturbing factor is the seeds' quality. In order to increase your chances to get a nice yield, you had better choose the first generation (F1) feminized seeds. The F1 seeds are the most fruitful and strong. Later generations, on the other hand, tend to loose their potency and power. So, if you choose any other type of seeds, there will be no guarantee on what you will get in the end.
Secondly, if only you are not using feminized seeds, you will have to throw away about a half of your plants because they will most likely be male plants. And you definitely do not want to have these guys in your garden, because it will significantly decrease the potency of your future buds.
So, whatever option you choose, make sure you are ready to overcome every obstacle on the way to your large and high-quality crop.
