Seeds from environmental hermaphrodites

This is my second medical marijuana crop. Unfortunately, I stressed out the first crop by not having the lights on a timer and doing the best I could (give or take an hour or two). I wigged out the poor plants so bad they became hermaphrodites. I did not take cuttings, but I have a lot of these seeds from hermaphrodites. I read in one of your books that seeds from induced hermaphrodites will have a tendency to be female, but a friend said that I shouldn’t plant these seeds because they are bad. Could you please advise?

Since these were known females and the hermaphroditism was induced by environmental conditions, the seeds have no genes for either maleness or hermaphroditism. Although the females produced male flowers, the pollen on those flowers contained only x-or female-chromosomes, no y-or male-chromosomes. Thus the seeds are all female.
