How long will cannabis pollen stay viable?

Once the male plant has developed its pollen sacs, you should keep a close eye on them. Cannabis pollen is generally viable for 2 to 3 days under natural conditions.

How long will cannabis pollen stay viable?

Once the male plant has developed its pollen sacs, you should keep a close eye on them. Cannabis pollen is generally viable for 2 to 3 days under natural conditions. Sufficient moisture was removed from the cannabis pollen before it was combined with baked whole wheat flour and stored in liquid nitrogen. By removing the pollen from the mixture, the researchers applied it to female flowering plants, resulting in successful seed formation in all test subjects.

Viable germination lasted 4 months, implying that it is possible to conserve cannabis pollen indefinitely. This is invaluable for maintaining a large collection of genetics. In a new study, funded in part by the Canadian government, researchers have developed a method for storing cannabis pollen for extended periods of time. Researchers from Canada explored several ways to store cannabis pollen to see which method produced the best conservation results.

Cannabis pollen, crucial for seed generation, is the powdery, dusty, typically yellowish material produced by male cannabis plants or by the male flowers of hermaphroditic seed-producing plants. Whether cannabis fans are trying their green thumbs as a hobby, to reduce their monthly cannabis budget, or to provide stable access to medicinal buds, the amateur grower has a lot to learn. Canada is one of only two countries to legalize cannabis for adults and is home to the world's strongest adult cannabis industry. I will cite the study and explain why this development is so important for cannabis breeders and for the entire cannabis industry.

The long-term storage of cannabis pollen is particularly important for the international cannabis industry, where pollen from faraway places is needed for several reasons. It is interesting to note that cannabis pollen stored in liquid nitrogen without adequate moisture reduction did not germinate.
