Sinsemilla is a highly concentrated variety of cannabis. Some describe it as a prime, seedless cannabis flower that is tended to a very high degree of care whilst others believe that sinsemilla are pure strains of extremely potent marijuana.

Different from other kinds of cannabis, sinsemilla contains absolutely no seeds. Sinsemilla refers to a multitude of strains of marijuana where the female plant is allowed to only produce flowers but is left unfertilized, so she does not progress on to produce seeds.

The word sensimilla actually originates from the pair of Spanish words ‘sin’ (which means without) and 'semilla' (which means seeds) to literally mean ‘without seeds.’ The word has been around since at least the 70s and since has contributed to the reputation of sinsemilla marijuana as being better than seed-laced samples of the herb. 

This reputation does indeed have evidence to back it up, lending some truth to the assumptions and rumors that sinsemilla is better. As female cannabis plants are denied fertilization, they produce larger amounts of resins with higher concentrations of marijuana’s active compounds (THC, the thing that gets people ‘high’) since they don’t use any energy making seeds.

People also think that the best sinsemilla is trimmed correctly, dried and cured so that in addition to it being seedless, the flowers smell, taste and look amazing. It shouldn’t come as a surprise then that everyone is looking to get their hands on sinsemilla flowers.

In this day and age, sinsemilla isn’t such a rare plant because it is easier than it ever has been for growers to ensure their cannabis crops are entirely female with hydroponic techniques, controlled greenhouses and the ability to get female clones of feminized seeds – with the advances of modern-day science, all of this is, of course, getting simpler and simpler. Having an indoor grow when growing sinsemilla is optimum because plants grown outdoors have been known to accidentally be fertilized by male plants growing unknown to growers. It’s also easier to administer special care in indoor grows. 

The term ‘sinsemilla’ then, can be used to describe any female cannabis plants that haven’t been exposed to male ones and fertilized. Sinsemilla plants are highly sought after because of their reputation which isn’t surprising when keeping in mind their high-quality yield.
