For Outdoor Farming
We have created seed starts from our proprietary hemp strain, and have sexed it to ensure there are only females. This is the best of both worlds, as you get a taproot (that would otherwise not be present in a clone / cutting) and since the starts have already been sexed, you don’t have to worry about rouging males.
These are roots from our Abacus that was grown from seed, you can see the prominent tap root.
Abacus can be planted to grow row crop or spaced out. Will have strong tap root that is not present with clones / cuttings. A strong tap root ensures even more strength and vigor as the plant matures and has also been said to help increase yield. a “survival advantage” in nature, and gives a huge advantage in growing outdoor crops especially in hot and dry conditions.
The most valuable benefit of investing in feminized seeds is that you will almost certainly see a higher profit for your investment. Consider that normalized hemp seeds are likely to contain a similar number of males and females. That means that you’ll need to eliminate roughly half of your crop with each planting, cutting your ROI in half. When you use feminized hemp seeds, you know that over 99% of seeds that germinate will grow into a CBD or CBG resin producer for you.
When you choose feminized hemp seeds, you don’t have to worry about a few stray male hemp plants pollinating your crop and undercutting your profits.
If you choose to plant regular hemp seeds, you’ll have to wait up to six weeks until the plants reach the preflower stage. Only at this time will you be able to accurately sex your plants. You’ll need to take the extra time to assess every plant and cull the males.
If you’re considering planting hemp in the near future, you may have heard about companies that sell feminized hemp seeds. You may have also heard that feminized seeds are more expensive than “regular” seeds. What are feminized seeds, and why do they sell for a higher price? More importantly, are feminized hemp seeds worth the extra cost?
Many farmers believe feminized hemp seeds are well worth the extra upfront cost and are willing to make the investment. Here are some of the main reasons they choose feminized seeds in the USA:
Is there any reason for you to consider investing in regular hemp seeds instead of feminized hemp seeds? The primary benefit of purchasing regular hemp seeds is their lower price.
If you talk to enough hemp farmers, you’re bound to hear a few horror stories of farmers who paid premium prices for feminized hemp seeds, only to watch many males sprout up in their fields and threaten their crop yield.

High Grade offers both seeds and starts for nearly all our hemp flower strains. Whether you choose seeds, starts, or a combination will depend on your preferences, your infrastructure, and your harvesting plan.
Farmers looking to cultivate hemp plants for CBG may be able to position themselves at the front of this growing trend. However, CBG poses some challenges. While CBD is fairly abundant in common hemp strains—especially in our high CBD industrial hemp seeds—CBG has historically been less abundant. That means farmers have had to grow more hemp plants in order to extract a comparable amount of CBG.
Once you have decided what hemp strain you want to plant, it’s crucial to invest in high-quality seeds that will give you the results you want. One of the most important factors in buying hemp seeds is making sure that the germination and feminization rates are optimal. Cannabinoids (CBD) are extracted from the flowers of female plants, so buying feminized seeds is crucial. Even a small percentage of male plants in a crop can drastically lower your cannabinoid harvest. We can’t overstate how important it is to buy hemp seeds from a reputable company. At High Grade Hemp Seed, our strains deliver germination rates of over 95% as well as feminization rates of over 99%.
