The Importance of Choosing the Right Hemp Genetics

Genetics are the building blocks of life and an essential element of producing high-quality hemp. Choosing seeds with strong lineage will lead to a more profitable harvest and reliable source of income.

There are four main reasons why genetics are critical for growing hemp plants, they include:

  1. Germination Rate
  2. Yield
  3. Hardiness
  4. THC Potency Levels

We will cover each in this post and, in the end, provide a source for high-quality feminized hemp seeds.

Germination Rate

Strong genetics ensure that seeds will begin developing and eventually grow into a healthy, profitable hemp plant. Most retailers claim to have a germination rate of over 90%; many won’t provide documentation from a reputable lab to back up the claim.

High-Quality Yield

Every farmer wants a substantial yield at the end of the growing season. Not only do genetics play a significant role in output, but a hemp plant’s genealogy will also determine the quality of the product.

Genetic characteristics are especially vital when it comes to growing smokable flower. Not only do you need a high yield to turn a profit, but you also need seeds that deliver a high terpene potency making the product taste like premium cannabis rather than hay.


Growing hemp is very difficult. Countless environmental factors directly impact your bottom line. CBD seeds with strong genetics are resilient and are prepared to withstand adverse weather, insects, and other elements that cut into profits.  

Ensure your hemp will survive the growing season with genetics built to handle adversity.

THC Potency Levels

Possibly the most important aspect of hemp genetics is the assurance of producing FDA compliant THC levels. Farmers have lost entire crops due to tenths of a percent over the 0.3% THC limit. Utilizing hemp seeds with a robust genetic profile ensures your crop will be categorized as cannabinoid hemp by the FDA.

Feminized Hemp Seeds from Trilogene Seeds

The hemp industry is still developing, and regulators constantly play catch-up to accommodate the budding space. Many hemp seed retailers don’t follow the rigorous labeling and oversight needed to keep them honest, making your source of seeds extremely important.
