    Hmmmm. Imma say the oldness jacked it up.

    it may have been through too much heat stress, or etc when stored . Or just stored Improperly.

    All in all, preserving the freshness is key. It happens though...... You should try and request a fresh batch of trim from the guy. Tell him it makes a world of a difference. Cheers qwiso Vega :)

    Oh, well shit.
    If you didn't even have a hand in growing it, you have no idea how he cured it or even grew it.
    It's probably something beyond your control.

    They're probably stress seeds. It happens sometimes. Yes, they would be feminized.

    the one problem with those seeds now is that they are now more prone to hermi, or they will hermi at the same time as the parent plant hermied while in harvest. so if the parent plant they came from hermied at week 6 the beans you pop will hermi in flower at week 6, or if they hermied due to stress from lack of water, if you miss a day watering and they get a little dry they will hermi. reason being it is a survival reaction, so the parent plant stressed and hermied because of lack of water so it puts into that seeds hey we might not get water at some point in time so be ready just in case. plants will do that for heat, water, lack of light, a certain nute.

    those fem seeds are not the same as they ones you get from the banks

    Mr. Vega,
    Your trouble lies within the trim my friend, obviously you've already gotten your answer.

    Always consider on concentrating of any nature, you can only get out what was put in.

    Fuck, I'd ask the guy if you could do the trimming as a means of fair trade?
    ” hey, I feel terrible just taking your trim, allow me to trim for you, and consider the trim itself as” payment for your services.

    Or, as you stated, maybe mention how his trim DOES have value, if he took care while trimming, you can make a very appealing product with monetary value.

    Then, offer to split the yield with him.

    Got a story in relation..

    A few weeks ago, my good friend calls me up and asks if I wanted to make hash for a friend of his.

    Well, of course I do, what's he working with?..

    Tells me he has two pounds of trim, and at this point I get excited, knowing the possibilities with two pounds of trim.
    I told him, well, lets just start small and go from there.
    Picked up the trim, which was all tied up in grocery bags, do I didn't inspect it at the time of pick up.

    Anyhow, I get the trim home, and...

    Oh no.. Just fan leaves with dirt, rocks, dog hair, maybe 5% of the trim had any visible trichomes.

    I found bugs, worms rocks, red balls of something..nastiest trim ever.

    So, I call immediately..I'm like...
    Uh, dude, did you look at this shit?
    No, what's up?
    Man, I cant do anything with this, it's disgusting.

    God damn, them I had to tell the guy that owned the trim..

    Felt horrible, as the guy got took.. He bought the trim, thinking he could turn” trash into hash”

    Man, that was a hard conversation...haha
