What is the difference between hemp seeds and clones?
Hemp seeds are planted in soil and have a complete seed to plant life cycle, whereas hemp clones are cuttings taken from the mother plant which will then grow its own roots and become a plant that’s identical to the original mother. Hemp clones tend to provide more genetic stability as they’re derived from a plant with known genetics whereas hemp seeds have not had the luxury of the stabilization inherent in modern plant breeding techniques since the Federal legalization of hemp is quite new. Therefore hemp plants grown from seeds have less stable genetics and traits than a cutting taken from a plant with known genetic characteristics. However, if you’re looking to create a new hemp variety, hemp seeds are the best place to start. Learn more about our hemp seeds and clones.
What is the difference between feminized hemp seeds and feminized hemp clones?
The main difference between these two is that one is a seed that’s planted and grown while the other is a cutting taken from a “mother plant” that’s then rooted and grown. Both feminized hemp seeds and feminized hemp clones lack male chromosomes, which means the grower does not have to do the work of identifying and removing male plants to prevent pollination.

How does hemp affect the soil?
Hemp has phytoremediative properties, which means that it cleans the soil by drawing in toxic elements. This is great for the soil, but when creating CBD products, it’s important to keep this in mind and grow using organic conditions as the CBD oil extracted from plants grown in toxic soil conditions will contain higher levels of those toxins.
