I believe it. I recall one of the first times I visited San Francisco as a teenager I scored some of the best bud I'd ever smoked at that point (still better than some I get these days) off of a homeless Veteran off of Van Ness. We'd gone to go skating but wanted to get some weed for after and wanted to avoid the Haight tourist traps so went down town. Got off the bus, and saw an older hippy looking guy in a wheelchair, one leg, but looked incredibly happy and was real chatty. We started talking to the guy and brought up that we were looking for some weed and he said he'd recently got a bit off of his friend. He went into his bag, grabbed a small handful, gave it to us and asked if we'd donate a little to him. As it was a lot for us back then we asked how much he wanted and he said he'd be happy with $25 so being veterans kids ourselves we gave him the $50 we intended to spend anyways and went on our merry way. At the end of the day we pulled the weed out of the bag and it was a beautiful light-blue green, purple color and as sticky as anything. Got us stupid and giggly stoned off a pinner joint, caught up with that friend the other week and he still brings that story up.
Wish you luck with those seeds man, you should definitely sprout them if you can, even if males you're still halfway there.
