How to Store Cannabis Pollen

If you triple-bag the pollen-flour mixture and stick it in the freezer (with a good nametag so you know where the pollen came from), your pollen can be stored for a year or longer. Make sure to use “freezer” bags (platsic bags specifically made for the freezer are more effective than regular plastic bags).
Make sure that you’re touching all the female pistils/hairs with your pollen. Here’s a little video showing you exactly what this looks like!

2.) Pollinate Female Plant That’s 2-3 Weeks in Flowering
Pollen is collected from male marijuana plants after they start flowering, or occasionally female plants when feminizing seeds.

1.) Collect Pollen When Pollen Sacs Start to Open
When pollen sacs are cracking and opening up, you’re ready to harvest your pollen!

Cytokinins (CK) are phytohormones that are produced in the roots, stimulate growth and have anti-aging effects. Because they’re produced in roots, cytokinins must travel up through the plant’s xylem in order to reach target areas, such as the stems and leaves. Cytokinins have several responsibilities, including working with auxins to stimulate growth and cell differentiation in both stems and roots. Cytokinins also specifically promote growth and development of chloroplasts, the cell organelle responsible for photosynthesis, with out which there is no life . . .

Hand pollination is meant to produce a few seeds (80 to 100) as opposed to a seed crop (10,000), which would occur in the wild rendering the plant unusable for human consumption. With just a few flowers on the plant fertilized all of the flowers, including the unfertilized flowers, will receive the same enhanced hormone infusion making them considerably more potent.
We most often think of hormones as things that control our actions and development. However, even plants have these chemical compounds and enzymes to help regulate growth and reproduction.

Gibberellins (GAs) are plant hormones that regulate growth and influence various developmental processes, including germination, stem elongation, leaf expansion, dormancy, flowering, sex expression, enzyme induction, trichome development, pollen maturation and senescence.
When you hear the word ‘hormones,’ you may think of typical human hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen or even adrenaline. These hormones in our bodies regulate different physiological activities ranging from the tone of our voices to our height to all of our physical attributes. Plants, which seem unresponsive most of the time, also have hormones to control physiological activities.

Hormones are chemical signals that coordinate the different parts of an organism. The word ‘hormone’ comes from a Greek term that means ‘to excite.’ These chemicals are produced in very small amounts in one area of an organism and are then sent to another part, where a response is triggered. Let’s use the human hormone adrenaline to illustrate this. Our adrenal glands are located above our kidneys. They produce a hormone called adrenaline that, when needed, is transported through our bodies to cause an increase in heart rate, dilation of pupils and other responses to make us more alert and powerful.
Here we are hand pollinating one of our signature strains “Revelation”.

A unique role of cytokinins is to produce anti-aging effects on some plant parts. When you think of anti-aging products, you may think of expensive face creams that advertise giving a younger, brighter look. Cytokinins actually provide a younger, healthier look in plants. Florists commonly use cytokinins to make cut flowers look fresh for longer. By adding this hormone to cut flowers, florists are able to slow down the aging process, providing us with prettier flowers for longer.
