Undeveloped seeds in weed

What’s the deal with all of the tiny underdeveloped seeds in ALL of the herb I’ve seen lately?

I’m in an illegal state so obviously problems are to be expected from time to time, but the last 10 types of bud I’ve seen around where i live have been pollinated out the ass, with tiny seeds growing in just about every single calynx on the plant.

The seeds are always TINY, and the bud usually smells like hay. I think that crop’s are getting pollinated by nanners or hermies and growers are cutting down their crops early before the seeds can form, leaving a chlorophyll smell in the bud that smells like hay or fresh cut grass.

It’s super annoying, I’ve started to smoke concentrates because I can’t deal with the taste of 20-30 tiny seeds in every gram of otherwise frosty looking herb.

Extremly small seeds in weed

Iv been growing for a couple years and have never noticed these little fuckers, theyr like the size of a pin head and don’t fully develope. I know my plant isn’t a herm and I don’t think any MJ pollen got to it. I tryd lookin it up and most people say it was pollinated late flower before the seeds could develope, makes sense right?, only I harvested some bud off the plant at like 8 weeks, noticed the tiny seeds, let them go another 2 weeks to let them mature, only still no real seeds, justs the tiny pinhead ones exact same as at week 8. I think I read pollen from non MJ plants can cause this? Lookin for someone with some knowledge on this

You need the pollen to make the seed.
There’s double fertilization going on. The embryo gets a nucleus, and so does the endosperm.

There’s proteins on the outside of the pollen. It’s like a key. It can only match the pistil of that species. You’ll never get a pine tree fertilizing a rose bush. It’s not the right keys, you could say.

There’s pollen on the wind. It gets on your clothes. People that come over they might have it. The plant is weird for an angiosperm. It uses wind pollination like most all gymnosperms.

No little yellow bananas in the buds? I’ve had that happen a couple times. Little per mature seeds. Maybe it could be that man.

I think, and I could be wrong but it makes sense to me, that it was pollinated VIA another plant/tree whatever and it started to develop the seed but since it wasn’t pollinated correctly they will never mature. I think I had this happen to me in my current grow. I pulled off a calyx where the hair had a brown tip and found a small white/green seed but they don’t seem to be growing.. I will give it time but it makes logical sense to me.

I had the same exact thing happen to my mango plant- the tiniest seeds I’ve ever encountered which I smoked for days before noticing. Happens. Choose a new strain. Lol

No nanners, I should mention theyr blackish in color and have looked at them under a mag and u can see the little dip in the bottom where the pistols were like in a normal seed, but what bothers me is if it was MJ pollen those tiny seeds should have developed. right now I’m stuck on its either pollination from foreign species, or all weed has these and just go unnoticed, maybe the embryo gets hard and black as it drys? It dosent really effect the taste or anything, slight poping when it’s burnt not fully dry, but when dry its a smooth sensimila smoke
