About Flying Dutchmen

Flying Dutchmen

It is an impressive transition when you realise that The Flying Dutchmen started with one man, 40 years ago, conducting some cannabis research for personal satisfaction.

Eddie, the founder of The Flying Dutchmen may have had humble beginnings but that all changed by 1984, when he opened a wholesale genetics business, cultivating new hybrids for the market with fellow breeder Skunkman.

Together, Eddie and Skunkman introduced the very first Skunk#1 (available to buy at Seedsman) to the market along with a host of other new strains.

In order to find unique parental stock, tens of thousands of each strain were grown out in greenhouses, the best were selected and preserved. These best plants were inbred until the strain was considered stable or pure breeding. Crosses between two stable varieties are known as F1 hybrids.

You can buy Flying Dutchmen Seeds at Seedman with confidence, and enjoy some of the classic strains that Eddie and Skunkman created over 30 years ago.

A guide to buying cannabis seeds

The first couple months of the year is a great time to start planning your cannabis garden to get a head start on the outdoor growing season, which roughly runs from March to November, depending on where you live.

Navigating the cannabis seed market can be challenging when states have different degrees of legality. This guide will answer your questions on buying seeds so you can be on your way to growing your own cannabis.

Is it legal to buy marijuana seeds?

Marijuana seeds are considered a cannabis product just like flower, edibles, and concentrates. Their legality depends on which state you live in. People living in states with adult-use legalization can buy, produce, and sell seeds within their own state, but seeds can’t cross state lines. People living in states with medical marijuana legalization can only buy seeds if they have a medical card.

Seed banks exist outside of the US and can sell them for “souvenir purposes,” but it is illegal to bring seeds into the US and Customs will seize any cannabis seeds they find in packages or on a person.

Where can I buy cannabis seeds?

Many world-renowned seed banks are overseas in the Netherlands, the UK, Spain, and other countries where cannabis laws are less restricted. Seed banks provide seeds from a variety of different breeders.

In states with adult-use legalization or a medical marijuana program, you can buy seeds within your own state, either at a dispensary or through a specific seed company’s website.

How to buy cannabis seeds online

Before you purchase seeds online, you’ll need to figure out what strain you want to grow and what breeder you want to buy from.

Because US federal law still prohibits cannabis, it can be hard to find information on seed banks and breeders. Breeders who have a long history and positive reputation are usually a good place to start. To get an idea of what well-established breeders look like, check out:

Europe

  • Sensi Seeds
  • DNA Genetics
  • Dinafem
  • Green House Seeds

US

  • Southern Humboldt Seed Collective
  • Exotic Genetix

You can also do some research and find an online grow journal that details the whole growing process of a specific strain from a particular breeder. Through these, you’ll be able to look over another grower’s specific notes and see pictures of the final results.

If you grow some seeds and like the results, try growing another strain from that same breeder and see how it goes.

How to buy cannabis seeds at a dispensary

Although this option is only available to people living in states with medical and adult-use legalization, buying marijuana seeds at the dispensary is far more straightforward. However, your options are more limited.

Dispensary staff should be able to give you information on the seeds they’re selling, but keep in mind that a lot of dispensaries focus on selling flower and end-products. It’s a good idea to call ahead and talk to staff to see if they are knowledgeable about seeds and can give you specific information on growing.

How to look for quality genetics when buying marijuana seeds

Breeders talk about “unstable genetics,” meaning that a seed’s origin is unknown. Make sure that when you buy a packet of seeds that it or the breeder who produced them can list where the seeds came from and how they were crossed and/or backcrossed to get the seed that you hold in your hand. If you can’t get a seed’s history, it could be anything and the result of poor breeding practices.

An inexperienced breeder might cross a male and a female one time and sell the resulting seeds as a new hybrid strain, but professional breeders usually put their strains through several rounds of backcrossing to stabilize the genetics and ensure consistent plants that reflect those genetics.

Which strain should I grow?

Even one weed plant can produce a lot of buds come harvest time, so make sure you grow a strain you like. Note strains you enjoy when you pick something up at the dispensary or smoke with friends, and look for seeds of it when you want to start growing.

Some strains are easier to grow than others because they are more resistant to mold and pests, so if you’re new to growing, you may want to try an easier strain to start.

Some strains also take longer to grow than others. Depending on whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors, you may want to grow a quicker marijuana strain if you live in a climate that get cold and wet early in the season. For example, indicas are known for having a shorter flowering time than sativas.

All of this information should be available to you when buying quality seeds.

What’s the difference between regular, feminized, and autoflower seeds?

Regular seeds

If you buy a packet of regular seeds, they’ll come with a mix of males and females. A lot of cultivators prefer to grow these because they haven’t been backcrossed—essentially inbred—as much as feminized or autoflower seeds. You’ll need to sex out the seeds once their reproductive organs show during the flowering phase and discard the males—because they don’t produce buds and will pollenate females, resulting in seeded flowers.

Feminized seeds

Seeds can come feminized, meaning you can just put them in soil and start growing for buds. These seeds are guaranteed to be bud-producing females and growing them cuts out the step of having to sex out plants and discard the males.

It also reduces the risk of having a stray male sneak into your crop—just one male can pollinate a huge crop, causing your females to focus their energies on producing seeds instead of buds.

Autoflower seeds

Autoflower plants change from the vegetative to flowering state with age, not the changing of their light cycle. They have a short grow-to-harvest time and can be ready to harvest in as little as 2 ½ to 3 months from when you put the seeds in the ground. The downside is that, typically, they are less potent, but autoflower seeds are great for people who want to grow cannabis but don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it.

How much do marijuana seeds cost?

Cannabis seeds usually come in a pack of 10 or 12 seeds and start at around $40 a pack and go up from there. Some high-end genetics can run between $200 to $500 a pack.

Feminized and autoflower seeds will cost more because more breeding work was put in to creating them and they take less time for the grower to get buds.

How many seeds should I buy? Are they all going to survive?

When you grow any amount of seeds, a percentage of them won’t germinate, even if you get them from a reputable breeder. Always count on a few not germinating or dying off, or roughly 1/4 of the total you put in the ground.

When growing regular seeds, some won’t germinate and some will have to be discarded because they’ll turn out to be males. With feminized seeds, some won’t germinate, but a higher percentage of them will turn into flowering plants because there won’t be any males.

If you want six total cannabis plants to harvest for buds and are growing from regular seeds, start with about 4 times as many, or 24 seeds. Some won’t germinate and some will turn out to be males, and then you’ll want to discard down to the six best phenotypes. If growing feminized seeds, you can probably start with about twice as many seeds in this case (about 12); a couple won’t germinate, and then discard down to the six best phenotypes.

Make sure to always stay within your state’s legal limit of growing plants.

How do I buy strain-specific cannabis seeds?

Strains like Blue Dream, Gelato, and Original Glue have gained in popularity in recent years. Check out these resources on how to buy these types of cannabis seeds:

All of the Premium Cannabis Seeds that you can buy in our online shop possess a first-class genetic disposition. Moreover, our Dutch cultivator has refined and enhanced existing breeds. The key advantage being even higher yields of highly effective Cannabis.

Additionally, our Cannabis seeds are always fresh and never purchased as bulk material. We only sell quality goods, assessing every seed before shipping. This is why we can guarantee that only seeds with the highest quality are delivered to our customers.

Regular, feminized, and auto-flowering Cannabis Seeds from the Netherlands

High Supplies Premium Cannabis Seeds are cultivated in the Netherlands. They are hybrids from the breeds Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis. Our Cannabis seed shop is divided into different categories. You can directly search for a breed suited for either indoor or outdoor cultivation or opt for feminized seeds, which, being true to their name, have been modified to grow only female plants. Of course we also offer traditional seeds that develop both male and female plants.

Other categories that have been favored by our customers are auto-flowering seeds as well as seeds used in medical treatments.

We offer, among others, the following Cannabis seeds:

  • Big Bud (recommended for indoor)
  • Hollands Hope (recommended for outdoor)
  • Pure Power Plant (regular)
  • Blue Mystic (feminized)
  • Bubblelicious(medical)

High-supplies.com offers a broad range of seeds for various cultivation methods – as well as growing into plants with varying effects. Cannabis species with a high share of Indica genes, for example enhance physical and mental relaxation. This plant usually contains more Cannabidiol (CBD). Indica strands are best suited for an evening smoke due to their strong appeasing effect. They help with insomnia and reducing stress. Satvia strands on the other hand have an activating effect, as they contain more Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Mood and attentiveness increase after the Satvia consumption. Choose between the regular, feminized, and autoflowering seeds:

Regular Marijuana seeds means a mixture of male and female seeds. These are avaible with varying proportions. Male plants have to be removed or planted separately in order to avoid pollination. However, if you are planning to breed new seeds, the male plants are essential.

Feminized seeds only grow into female plants with resin carrying buds. This will directly result in a higher yield of the home grown Cannabis. These seeds are best suited if the cultivator wants to skip the removal of the male plants and is only interested in breeding resin-carrying buds.

If you want to simplify the cultivation even more, you should opt for autoflowering Marijuana seeds. These will reach florescence independent from altering lighting cycles – which a usually a core requirement. Furthermore, these species need less cultivation time and are hence earlier ready for the harvest.

Marijuana seeds for indoor and outdoor cultivation

Depending on the space you have available you can choose between species that flourish best outdoors or in an enclosed space. Outdoor strands usually grow a lot bigger, thrive best in a natural habitat and are very robust. Indoor seeds are specifically convenient if one does not have a lot of space for the cultivation. Both types germinate particularly well indoors, safe from temperature drops or other environment changes. If you are looking to buy Marijuana for indoor growth, we recommend Big Bud, Amnesia, or White Widow. They are the bestsellers in our online shop. Indoor species like a steady temperature and humidity level and their growth and blooming can easily be influenced by regulating the lighting times.

Besides to buying seeds, you can also purchase a complete set of accessories allowing for immediate dissemination.

Cannabis seeds 101: How to grow marijuana from seed

Cannabis is grown from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Seeds carry genetic information from two parent plants and can express many different combinations of traits: some from the mother, some from the father, and some traits from both.

In commercial cannabis production, generally, growers will plant many seeds of one strain and choose the best plant. They will then take clones from that individual plant, which allows for consistent genetics for mass production.

If cannabis is legal in your state, you can buy seeds or clones from a local dispensary, or online through various seed banks.

Cannabis seeds vs. clones

For the typical homegrower, it may be easier to obtain cannabis seeds rather than clones. Growing from seed can produce a stronger plant with more solid genetics.

Plants grown from seed can be more hearty as young plants when compared to clones, mainly because seeds have a strong taproot. You can plant seeds directly into an outdoor garden in early spring, even in cool, wet climates.

If growing outside, some growers prefer to germinate seeds inside because they are delicate in the beginning stages of growth. Indoors, you can give weed seedlings supplemental light to help them along, and then transplant them outside when big enough.

Most seeds that you will buy are regular seeds as described above, but here are a couple more types.

How weed seeds work

Cannabis can be either male or female—also called “dioecious”—but only females produce the buds we all know and love. For reproduction, males have pollen sacs and pollinate females, causing female flowers to produce seeds.

Once cannabis seeds are mature, the female plant begins to die, and seeds are either dropped to the ground where they grow into new cannabis plants next spring, or the seeds are harvested for processing into seed oil or food products, or stored so they can be sown in the ground later and become the next generation of plants.

To get the buds found in medical and recreational stores, female cannabis plants are grown in an environment without males—or the males are removed from the area before they release pollen—so the females don’t create seeds. Females can then focus their energies on producing buds and not seeds—this high-potency marijuana is traditionally known as “sinsemilla,” meaning “seedless.”

Some varieties of cannabis can produce male parts alongside female flowers on the same plant, especially if exposed to environmental stressors. These plants are known as hermaphrodites, and sometimes they can self-pollinate to create seeds.

Pros and cons of using cannabis seeds

Check out Johanna’s full video series on how to grow weed on Leafly’s YouTube .

If buying from a reputable breeder or seed bank, growing from seed is the best way to ensure your plants will have solid genetics and start clean, meaning they won’t come with diseases or pests.

Also, buying from a reputable breeder or seed bank will give you a sense of what a particular strain will look and smell like, how it will grow, and how much it will yield at harvest.

The main drawback to growing from seed is there is no guarantee as to what you’ll end up with—if you buy a regular pack of cannabis seeds, it will be a mix of males and females. You’ll need to sex them out (more below) to identify the males and get rid of them, because you don’t want your females producing seeds.

Sexing marijuana plants can be a time-consuming process, and if you don’t catch males, there is a risk that even one males can pollinate your entire crop, causing all of your female weed plants to produce seeds.

One way to avoid sexing plants is to buy feminized seeds (more below), which ensures every seed you plant will be a bud-producing female.

You can also minimize headaches and avoid the hassle of seed germination and sexing plants by starting with clones.

How weed clones work

Aside from producing cannabis through seeds, or sexual reproduction, you can also reproduce the plant through cloning, or asexual reproduction. A clone is a cutting that is genetically identical to the plant it was taken from—that plant is known as the “mother.”

Pros and cons of using cannabis clones

Through cloning, you can create a new harvest with exact replicas of your favorite plant. Because genetics are identical, a clone will give you a plant with the same characteristics as the mother, such as flavor, cannabinoid profile, yield, grow time, etc. So if you come across a specific strain or phenotype you really like, you might want to clone it to reproduce more buds that have the same effects and characteristics.

With cloning, you don’t have to get new seeds every time you want to grow another plant—you just take a cutting of the old plant—and you don’t have to germinate seeds or sex them out and get rid of the males.

One drawback of clones is they need to be taken during the vegetative stage of a plant—flower is too late—so if you have a small setup with only one light, it can be hard to keep clones alive while flowering other plants, because the two need different amounts of light.

Another drawback to clones is they can take on negative traits from the mother plant as well. If the mother has a disease, attracts pests, or grows weak branches, its clones will probably have the same issues.

Additionally, every long-time grower will tell you that clones degrade over time.

What are feminized cannabis seeds?

Feminized cannabis seeds will produce only female plants for getting buds, so there is no need to remove males or worry about female plants getting pollinated. Feminized seeds are produced by causing the monoecious condition in a female cannabis plant—the resulting seeds are nearly identical to the self-pollinated female parent, as only one set of genes is present.

This is sometimes referred to as “cloning by seed” and will not produce any male plants. This is achieved through several methods:

  • By spraying the plant with a solution of colloidal silver, a liquid containing tiny particles of silver
  • Through a method known as rodelization, in which a female plant pushed past maturity can pollinate another female
  • Spraying seeds with gibberellic acid, a hormone that triggers germination (this is much less common)

Most experienced or commercial growers will not use feminized seeds because they only contain one set of genes, and these should never be used for breeding purposes. However, a lot of beginning growers start with feminized seeds because they eliminate the worry of having to deal with male plants.

Top feminized cannabis strain families

A lot of classic weed strains that have been around for a while come in feminized form. Some popular fem seeds are:

  • OG Kush
  • Haze
  • Afghan
  • GSC (Cookies)
  • Skunk
  • Cheese
  • Gelato

What are autoflowering cannabis seeds?

Autoflowering seeds are also popular with beginning growers. They are easy to grow because you don’t have to worry about light cycles and how much light a plant receives.

Most cannabis plants begin flowering when the amount of light they receive on a daily basis reduces. Outdoors, this happens when the sun starts setting earlier in the day as the season turns from summer to autumn. Indoor growers can control when a plant flowers by reducing the daily amount of light plants receive from 18 hours to 12 hours.

However, a type of cannabis called Cannabis ruderalis, which developed in extreme northern conditions without much sunlight, will begin flowering once the plant reaches a certain age—they automatically start flowering regardless of the amount of light they receive, hence the name “autoflower.”

Pros and cons of growing autoflower

Because they grow and flower quicker, growers can fit in multiple autoflower cannabis harvests into the span of one regular harvest.

Autoflowers can be started in early spring and will flower during the longest days of summer, taking advantage of high quality light to get bigger yields. Or, if you get a late start in the growing season, you can start autoflowers in May or June and harvest in the fall.

Also, autoflower plants are small—perfect for closet grows or any small grow, or growing outdoors where you don’t want your neighbors to see what you’re up to.

A couple big drawbacks, though: Autoflower strains are known for being less potent. Also, because they are small in stature, they usually don’t produce big yields.

However, potency in autoflowering varieties has increased significantly since their initial introduction, with some breeders crossbreeding the low-THC ruderalis with other more potent varieties.

Tips for growing autoflower marijuana seeds

Autoflowering strains require some preparation, as they will grow quickly and start to flower whether or not you’re ready for them.

Climate considerations

Many marijuana growers start autoflowers early in the season, and at a different time than a regular crop, so keep the season and climate in mind when growing and harvesting—your plants still need warmth to grow, and rain can give them bud rot. Consider growing in a greenhouse to protect them.

Training plants

Because training happens during vegetative growth, for autoflowering plants, this period could be as short as a few weeks, which means time is limited. Try topping your autoflowers after they have three nodes, and stop once they begin to flower. You will want to prune them lightly.

Go easy on nutrients

Autoflowers don’t need lots of nutrients because they’re small and don’t spend much time in the vegetative cycle. They won’t need as much veg nutrients—such as nitrogen—but will need more bloom nutrients.

What are high-CBD cannabis seeds?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the chemical components—known collectively as cannabinoids—found in the cannabis plant. Over the years, humans have selected plants for high-THC content, making cannabis with high levels of CBD rare. The genetic pathways through which THC is synthesized by the plant are different than those for CBD production.

Cannabis used for hemp production has been selected for other traits, including a low THC content, so as to comply with the 2018 Farm Bill. Consequently, many varieties of hemp produce significant quantities of CBD.

As interest in CBD as a medicine has grown, many breeders have crossed high-CBD hemp with cannabis. These strains have little or no THC, 1:1 ratios of THC and CBD, or some have a high-THC content along with significant amounts of CBD (3% or more).

Seeds for these varieties are now widely available online and through dispensaries. It should be noted, however, that any plant grown from these seeds is not guaranteed to produce high levels of CBD, as it takes many years to create a seed line that produces consistent results. A grower looking to produce cannabis with a certain THC to CBD ratio will need to grow from a tested and proven clone or seed.

How to germinate marijuana seeds

Germination is the process in which a seed sprouts and begins to grow into a new plant. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your weed grow.

Marijuana seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality. For more info on how to buy marijuana seeds, check out our Guide to buying cannabis seeds.

Cannabis seeds require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. There are many methods to germinate seeds, but for the most common and simplest method, you will need:

  • Two clean plates
  • Four paper towels
  • Seeds
  • Distilled water

Step 1

Take four sheets of paper towels and soak them with distilled water. The towels should be soaked but shouldn’t have excess water running off.

Step 2

Take two of the paper towels and place them on a plate. Then, place the marijuana seeds at least an inch apart from each other and cover them with the remaining two water-soaked paper towels.

Step 3

To create a dark, protected space, take another plate and flip it over to cover the seeds, like a dome.

Step 4

Make sure the area the seeds are in is warm, somewhere between 70-85°F.

After completing these steps, it’s time to wait. Check the paper towels once a day to make sure they’re still saturated, and if they are losing moisture, apply more water to keep the seeds happy.

Some seeds germinate very rapidly while others can take a while, but generally, seeds should germinate in 3-10 days. If it’s been two weeks and a seed hasn’t sprouted, it’s probably a dud and won’t sprout.

A seed has germinated once the seed splits and a single sprout appears. The sprout is the taproot, which will become the main stem of the plant, and seeing it is a sign of successful germination.

It’s important to keep the delicate seed sterile, so don’t touch the seed or taproot as it begins to split.

Transplanting germinated cannabis seeds

Once you see the taproot, it’s time to transfer your germinated seed into its growing medium, such as soil.

  • Fill a 4-inch or one-gallon pot with loose, airy potting soil
  • Water the soil before you put the seed in; it should be wet but not drenched
  • Poke a hole in the soil with a pen or pencil—the rule of thumb is: make the hole twice as deep as the seed is wide
  • Using a pair of tweezers, gently place the seed in the hole with the taproot facing down
  • Lightly cover it with soil

Keep a close eye on the temperature and moisture level of the soil to keep the seed happy. It’s very delicate at this stage. Use a spray bottle to water it—over-watering can suffocate and kill the delicate sprout.

Within a week or so you should see a seedling begin to grow from the soil.

Germinating cannabis seeds doesn’t always go as planned. Some seeds will be duds. Others will be slow and take longer to sprout. But some will pop quickly and grow rapidly.

This is the beauty of seeds—often, you can tell which plants or genetics will thrive right from the get-go. This will help you determine which plants you want to take cuttings from for clones or for breeding if you want to create a seed bank of your own.

How to sex a pot plant

Check out Johanna’s full video series on how to grow weed on Leafly’s YouTube .

As we’ve mentioned, cannabis is a dioecious plant, meaning male and female reproductive organs appear on different plants.

Because only female cannabis plants produce buds and you want them to focus all their energy on producing buds and not seeds, it’s important to identify and get rid of male weed plants so they don’t pollinate females. If females are pollinated, it will give you buds filled with seeds, making your weed harsh and unpleasant.

Cultivating males is important for breeders trying to cross new strains and genetics, but most people growing for buds will want to remove the males.

As mentioned above, you can skip the processing of sexing weed plants by growing with feminized seeds or clones.

If growing male and female cannabis seeds, they’ll start to show their sex organs, or “pre-flowers,” after 8-10 weeks from germination.

Cannabis plant sex organs appear on nodes, the points where branches grow off from the main stalk.

Males will have round balls—these will develop into pollen sacs, which will release pollen into the air when mature.

Females will have a round structure with long hairs—these hairs will develop into pistils, which will catch pollen in the air.

Pre-flowers can initially be extremely small and hard to identify with the naked eye, but you can use a magnifying glass to get a better look.

Can I grow a seed I found in a bag of weed?

Finding a cannabis seed in your stash is not ideal, but we’ve all been there before. Although much less common than it once was, it still happens. Sometimes you’ll notice one when grinding down some flower, or you’ll see one pop, spark, and crackle from the heat of a lit bowl.

These are referred to as “bagseeds” and whether or not you can grow one will depend on where it came from.

Is a bagseed good or bad?

Seeds found in finished cannabis buds can develop for a number of reasons. For example, a male plant may have accidentally pollinated a flowering female during the growing process. But more commonly, they’re a sign of stress and can be attributed to high temperatures during the final stages of flowering or an exaggerated spike in climate or environment.

Seeds can also form in plants with genetic disorders or instability, like hermaphrodites—plants that develop both male and female reproductive parts. Generally, stress and genetic disorders are viewed as bad, so temper expectations with any plant you start from a bagseed.

But sometimes you get lucky and find a mature seed in some really nice herb. Strains like the legendary Chemdog wouldn’t be possible without adventurous smokers planting and proliferating the seeds they found in a bag of kind bud.

So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.

Ask yourself a few questions to decide if it’s worth the time and energy to grow the seed.

Was the seed found in good weed?

If you don’t like the flavor, effects, or even the look of the bud, then it’s probably not worth growing.

Are you ready to grow?

Growing marijuana takes a certain level of commitment: time, energy, and financial resources, so be sure you can commit to the whole process.

Is the seed viable?

For a seed to be viable, it must be mature enough to have a completely formed genetic blueprint, and it must be strong enough to germinate and pop through its hard casing and sprout its crucial taproot.

There are a few indicators that will give you a sense of whether the seed is worth germinating.

  • Tiger stripes—dark stripes on the seed which resemble veins on a leaf are generally good
  • Solid shell—a seed should be able to withstand a little pressure when pinched between your fingers; if it crumbles or cracks, it’s no good

Immature seeds tend to be light in color and have a soft outer shell.

In some cases, even if a seed isn’t completely mature, there’s still a chance it could be viable. But often these are extremely weak, take long to develop, and express other unfavorable characteristics. Growers usually discard weak plants to free up space.

You might also find a mature seed that has been physically damaged through poor handling, like rough trimming. In those cases, it probably isn’t worth the effort to try and germinate the seed.

But if the seed you found looks decent, you might as well germinate it and see what sprouts.

Time to germinate

Viable or not, there’s only one sure way to find out if a bagseed will grow. If you’re simply curious to learn and not as concerned with the overall outcome, you can plant a couple of bagseeds outside and see what happens.

If you’re ready for a more serious approach, make sure you have the space for a proper garden and pop the seeds to see what fruit they bear.

Even if your seed sprouts fast and grows vigorously, it still has roughly a 50/50 chance of being female and producing buds, instead of turning out to be a male.

Remember, once a seed germinates, the real work begins. Sexing, selecting, vegetative growth, flowering, and the eventual harvest all lie ahead.

How to buy cannabis seeds

Cannabis seeds can be found on numerous online seed banks, but note that it is illegal to bring seeds into the US and Customs will seize any cannabis seeds that they find in packages or on a person. In legal and medical states, you may purchase seeds at a dispensary.

Additionally, our Cannabis seeds are always fresh and never purchased as bulk material. We only sell quality goods, assessing every seed before shipping. This is why we can guarantee that only seeds with the highest quality are delivered to our customers.

Regular, feminized, and auto-flowering Cannabis Seeds from the Netherlands

High Supplies Premium Cannabis Seeds are cultivated in the Netherlands. They are hybrids from the breeds Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis. Our Cannabis seed shop is divided into different categories. You can directly search for a breed suited for either indoor or outdoor cultivation or opt for feminized seeds, which, being true to their name, have been modified to grow only female plants. Of course we also offer traditional seeds that develop both male and female plants.

Other categories that have been favored by our customers are auto-flowering seeds as well as seeds used in medical treatments.

We offer, among others, the following Cannabis seeds:

  • Big Bud (recommended for indoor)
  • Hollands Hope (recommended for outdoor)
  • Pure Power Plant (regular)
  • Blue Mystic (feminized)
  • Bubblelicious(medical)

High-supplies.com offers a broad range of seeds for various cultivation methods – as well as growing into plants with varying effects. Cannabis species with a high share of Indica genes, for example enhance physical and mental relaxation. This plant usually contains more Cannabidiol (CBD). Indica strands are best suited for an evening smoke due to their strong appeasing effect. They help with insomnia and reducing stress. Satvia strands on the other hand have an activating effect, as they contain more Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Mood and attentiveness increase after the Satvia consumption. Choose between the regular, feminized, and autoflowering seeds:

Regular Marijuana seeds means a mixture of male and female seeds. These are avaible with varying proportions. Male plants have to be removed or planted separately in order to avoid pollination. However, if you are planning to breed new seeds, the male plants are essential.

Feminized seeds only grow into female plants with resin carrying buds. This will directly result in a higher yield of the home grown Cannabis. These seeds are best suited if the cultivator wants to skip the removal of the male plants and is only interested in breeding resin-carrying buds.

If you want to simplify the cultivation even more, you should opt for autoflowering Marijuana seeds. These will reach florescence independent from altering lighting cycles – which a usually a core requirement. Furthermore, these species need less cultivation time and are hence earlier ready for the harvest.

Marijuana seeds for indoor and outdoor cultivation

Depending on the space you have available you can choose between species that flourish best outdoors or in an enclosed space. Outdoor strands usually grow a lot bigger, thrive best in a natural habitat and are very robust. Indoor seeds are specifically convenient if one does not have a lot of space for the cultivation. Both types germinate particularly well indoors, safe from temperature drops or other environment changes. If you are looking to buy Marijuana for indoor growth, we recommend Big Bud, Amnesia, or White Widow. They are the bestsellers in our online shop. Indoor species like a steady temperature and humidity level and their growth and blooming can easily be influenced by regulating the lighting times.

Besides to buying seeds, you can also purchase a complete set of accessories allowing for immediate dissemination.

At High Supplies you can buy cannabis seeds comfortably online – always at the best prices. We sell premium marijuana seeds as a trademark and don’t feel the need to ask our customers for a minimum purchase. Take your time and poke around our page. We are looking forward to your order.

cbd seeds no thc

CBD Flower: Dose CBD Without The THC

THC has long been the shining star of the cannabis world, but now CBD is taking the community by storm. Read on to learn all about CBD flower with no THC, how it’s made, and the best CBD-rich strains from RQS.

Contents:

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid produced mainly within the trichomes of the cannabis plant. This compound has risen to superstar status over the past few years as more and more studies reveal the intriguing characteristics behind CBD. CBD is also non-psychoactive, making it much more legally accepted around the world—even in places where THC consumption is actively forbidden.

You might see CBD-rich cannabis referred to in several ways, and so we use the terms “THC-free weed”, “CBD flower”, and “CBD bud” interchangeably.

IS CBD FLOWER LEGAL?

In all likelihood, yes. While there are no sweeping global regulations of CBD flower, the compound is legal in Europe so long as it does not contain more than 0.2% THC. In America, this threshold is slightly higher at 0.3% THC.

However, depending on the country you live in and the type of CBD you’re looking to enjoy, it’s crucial to check the laws pertinent to where you are.

HOW IS CBD FLOWER MADE?

Just as cannabis plants have been selectively bred for decades to churn out massive quantities of THC, there are now strains that produce sky-high CBD levels with next to no THC. These new strain profiles allow growers to cultivate hemp or CBD-rich cannabis even in countries where it is illegal to grow THC-rich cannabis. It also means that cannabis users seeking CBD without getting high can smoke or vape its flowers in the same format they would THC-rich flowers.

When it comes to cultivating CBD-rich cannabis, the most important factor to consider is genetics. Enzymes in the plant dictate whether or not it will be rich in THC or CBD. Growers will generally crossbreed two strains with high CBD levels and low THC levels to improve CBD content.

To decrease THC levels even more, a grower may choose to crossbreed marijuana with hemp, leading to almost negligible amounts of THC in the progeny. Crossbreeding these plants with CBD-rich strains then allows the grower to increase the amount of CBD up to a certain threshold. The highest concentration that a plant can realistically achieve, at time of writing, is around 20–25% CBD, which you can see in special strains like Juanita la Lagrimosa.

HOW IS CBD FLOWER MADE

HOW IS CBD FLOWER MADE

HOW TO USE CBD FLOWER

When it comes to how you enjoy your THC-free weed, it will mostly come down to personal preference. The only essential thing to remember is that the CBD flower needs to be heated and “activated” in a process known as decarboxylation. This is done automatically when vaping or smoking; with edibles, you are responsible for decarboxylating the weed first in an oven.

SMOKING

Whether you are looking to smoke a joint or pipe, you can certainly enjoy CBD bud this way.

Pros: The impact can be felt in seconds.
Cons: The smoke may be too harsh on the lungs, particularly if you are taking CBD for therapeutic reasons.

VAPING

Rather than burning the CBD flower, a vape heats it just enough to release the cannabinoids and terpenes into a vapor that is much easier on the lungs.

Pros: As quick as smoking, but less harsh on the lungs.
Cons: Is more expensive outright, as you need to buy a vaping device.

EDIBLES

If you’re not interested in smoking or vaping, it’s possible to enjoy CBD edibles—and there is a vast range of options out there. From the increasingly popular CBD gummies to creating CBD-rich cannabutter, you have an endless array of options.

Pros: Easy and enjoyable, and there are plenty of recipes out there.
Cons: It can take a long time (up to two hours) to feel their effect, and it can be challenging to find the right dosage.

HOW MUCH CBD DOES ONE GRAM OF CBD FLOWER CONTAIN?

Calculating the amount of CBD in CBD flower is a little more challenging than working out how much is in an oil or a capsule.

In basic terms, one gram of CBD bud contains between 100–200mg of CBD. To calculate the amount for the particular strain you are using, you will find there is a percentage listed.

Say that CBD flower is advertised as being 21% CBD; in one gram of the THC free weed you’ll have around 210mg CBD.

FIND THE BEST CBD:THC RATIO FOR YOU

To find out what works best for you, it helps to understand a little bit about CBD:THC ratios and why they matter.

If a product has a CBD:THC ratio of 10:1, this means it contains ten times as much CBD as THC. Experiencing this would mean enjoying the benefits of CBD with almost no psychoactive effects.

A plant with a ratio of 1:1 contains equal amounts of CBD to THC and therefore would cause a notably psychoactive “high”, but less intense than a purely THC-rich strain.

Of course, there are numerous other ratios. One is not better than the other. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference and the effects you are hoping to enjoy. Ratios aren’t the only factor in how a strain will make you feel, as every human body is different. Follow the adage “dose low and go slow” to make sure you feel comfortable and in control of your experience.

CBD FLOWER: A NEWLY EMERGING MARKET

The CBD flower market is on the rise, especially within countries that haven’t yet legalized cannabis. Switzerland, for example, now has a soaring CBD flower market that is tolerated by the government because the THC content of the plants is less than 1%.

NEW ROYAL QUEEN SEEDS CBD STRAINS: HIGHEST CBD CONTENT

Our breeders have been working hard to create high-quality CBD-rich strains with great flavour and good growing characteristics. We are delighted to offer a range of nearly THC-free strains:

SOLOMATIC CBD

Solomatic CBD produces massive quantities of cannabidiol (21%) alongside a THC content below 1%. It’s the perfect option for users seeking large amounts of CBD without getting even a little bit high. The effects support a clear, focused, and relaxed state of mind. The flowers of this strain feature a unique terpene profile that emanates aromas of fruit, ginger, and pine.

Solomatic CBD is the result of crossing Diesel CBD and Asia CBD Auto. As an autoflowering strain, it is beginner-friendly and extremely easy to grow. What’s more, its genetics also ensure rapid growth, meaning you won’t have to wait long to be rewarded with a hefty harvest. This plant explodes from seed to harvest in as little as 9–10 weeks.

CBD flower describes selectively bred cannabis strains that churn out large quantities of CBD, and less than 1% THC. Find out more about CBD flower with no THC!

High CBD Seeds

Cannabidiol also referred to as CBD, is one of a number of cannabinoids which makes up the cannabis plant, and is known to be the non-intoxicating compound found within the plant. Accounting for around forty percent of the cannabis plant’s extract, CBD has become the focal point of various researches looking to identify the benefits of the

compound, since its non-psychoactive properties do away from the adverse effect of impairing the consumer’s cognitive ability, unlike THC. High-CBD strains allow consumers to remain clear-headed and functional without having to deal with the ‘euphoric high’ which is generally associated with high THC strains.

As a result of the aforementioned, the demand for high CBD strains has increased greatly in the last few years, leading to growers opting for such high CBD seeds, to meet the growing demand. In addition to this, some breeders have now focused their efforts on creating strains which contain a high level of CBD, to cater to the growing number of consumers for such products. Not to mention, CBD has also vastly increased in popularity since a number of researches have indicated therapeutic properties associated with CBD, leading to the medical cannabis user’s community opting for the said compound.

Although that being said, though CBD has no lethal dose or known medical side effects, however, it is still federally illegal, in various countries. In addition to this, the concept of utilising cannabis derived compounds for therapeutic conditions still brings about a negative response by some facets, since the culture remains as such where cannabis, in any form, is stigmatized. Though, once again, regardless of the aforementioned, the benefits of high CBD products cannot be ignored since their medicinal value has increased vastly over the past few years.

Benefits of High CBD Seeds

High CBD products have been known for their therapeutic benefits and analgesic, anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory properties, which have made high CBD products a non traditional medicinal medium which is utilised by consumers. In addition to this, high CBD products have known to act as a treatment for various diseases, including but not limited to, Inflammation, Brain Injuries, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Cancer, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Batten Disease, Gastrointestinal disorders, Ischemia and other such ailments.

A particular case of treatment, with the usage of CBD, came through whilst treating a rare and debilitating form of paediatric epilepsy, known as Dravet’s Syndrome. The child in question was given ingestible oil derived from Charlotte’s Web, a CBD strain which was specifically developed to provide the child with all the benefits of the drug without the high. The result was that in less than two years, the child went from a monthly seizure count of twelve hundred to about three.

On the other hand, though high CBD products have known to benefit patients suffering from various ailments, however legalization issues of cannabis is still a problem in various countries. Hence, this has not only led to the usage of such products being prohibited but has also curtailed further research being carried out in such countries. Therefore, abidance by the law as per the state need to be accounted for prior to utilising CBD products or growing such varieties.

Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds come from a controversial cannabis plant. Instead of getting you high, they deliver a blast of essential nutrients and potential benefits for your heart, brain, and skin. Whether you want to improve your health or enrich your diet, hemp seeds have got you covered. Read on to learn how to get the most out of them and prevent unpleasant side effects.

What Are Hemp Seeds?

Hemp seeds are the seeds of a cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa). Unlike marijuana, hemp is a cannabis strain low in psychoactive THC, and people mostly grow it for industrial and nutritional purposes and CBD extraction [1].

“Miracle plant” sounds like a cliche, but here’s why hemp deserves this label [2, 3, 4, 5]:

  • Hemp seeds are packed with essential nutrients
  • Cannabinoids from hemp have a range of potential benefits
  • Hemp fiber is perfect for making ropes, clothes, and paper
  • It can replace plastics and even build solid constructions
  • Hemp is a potential source of biofuel

Each potential use of hemp deserves a separate article (a book, actually); this one will be about hemp seeds nutrition, potential health benefits, and precautions.

Hemp seeds deliver an array of essential nutrients and have a mild nutty flavor that blends well in smoothies and spreads. Get ready to meet one of the most nutritious foods on our planet!

Snapshot

Proponents:
  • Loaded with protein, healthy fats, and minerals
  • Optimal omega-6/omega-3 ratio
  • High protein quality with all essential amino acids
  • May protect the heart and the brain
  • May help with diabetes and constipation
  • Softens the skin and relieves eczema
Skeptics:
  • Therapeutic value lacks stronger clinical evidence
  • Shelled seeds (hearts) are low in fiber
  • May be contaminated with psychoactive THC

Hemp Seeds Nutrition

Hemp seeds are an excellent source of protein, healthy fats, and minerals. One serving packs an array of essential nutrients in their optimal ratio, along with modest 166 kcal (Table 1).

18:3 n-6 (gamma-linolenic acid) g 1.34 0.4
Trans fats g 0 0

Hemp seeds contain impressive 11.5 g of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and zero trans fats per serving. PUFAs are super-important for your health as they [6, 7, 8, 9, 10]:

  • Combat inflammation
  • Protect the heart and blood vessels
  • Enable brain development
  • Improve skin health and complexion

Hemp seeds are rich in alpha-linolenic acid, which is an essential omega-3 fatty acid. One serving delivers 160% (men) and 230% (women) of the daily value [11].

The second essential fatty acid is linoleic acid (omega-6), and hemp seeds will supply you with 68% (w) or 48% (m) of the daily value per serving.

The omega-6/omega-3 ratio of hemp fatty acids is 2-3/1, which most experts consider optimal for keeping inflammation in check. Western diets have a ratio of 15-17/1 and crave good omega-3 sources such as hemp seeds [1, 12, 13].

But healthy fats are just one part of their superb nutritional profile…

Protein

With 32% protein, hemp seeds are among the best protein sources you can get.

You will often hear claims about the poor quality of plant protein, but that’s not the case with hemp seeds. Protein quality score considers the content of essential amino acids and protein digestibility. With a value of 83.5-92, hemp seeds beat even some types of meat [14].

Hemp seeds are high in arginine, an amino acid that boosts cardiovascular health and relieves inflammation [15, 16, 17].

Vitamins and Minerals

Having a hard time achieving the optimal intake of different minerals and vitamins?

One serving (30g, 3 tbsp) of hemp seeds will provide you with [18, 19, 15, 20]:

  • Magnesium: 53% (m), 68% (w) DV
  • Iron: 30% (m), 13 % (w) DV
  • Zinc: 27% (m), 37% (w) DV
  • Phosphorus: 70% DV
  • Copper: 53% DV
  • Manganese: 100% (m), 128% (w) DV
  • Thiamin (vitamin B1): 33% DV

*m=men; w=women; DV=daily value for adults

Hemp Seeds vs. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are another amazing source of healthy fats and other nutrients. Hemp seeds are more nutritious in general, but chia seeds have the following advantages (Table 2):

  • Fewer calories
  • Much more fiber
  • More vitamin A
  • Much more calcium
  • More omega-3 fatty acids

Hemp seeds are higher in all other nutrients, especially protein, unsaturated fats, and minerals.

Table 2 — Hemp Seeds vs. Chia Seeds Nutritional Profiles [15, 21]

Nutrients per 100 g Unit Hemp Seeds Chia Seeds
Energy kcal 553 486
Protein g 31.56 16.54

But you don’t have to choose between hemp and chia seeds, right? Combine these two for optimal nutrition and a range of health benefits.

Hemp Seeds Health Benefits

How It Works

As mentioned above, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in their optimal ratio reduce inflammation, soothe the skin, and lower the risk of various chronic diseases [6, 7, 8, 9, 22].

Hemp seeds contain unique polyphenols – cannabisinins – with potent antioxidant activity. Hemp protein and flavonoids such as quercetin also combat free radicals [23, 24, 25].

Arginine and other active compounds in hemp protein shield the heart and blood vessels [17, 26].

1) Heart Health

According to different reviews and clinical trials, optimal intake of alpha-linolenic acid and other omega-3s found in hemp seeds can [27, 28, 29, 30]:

  • Reduce cholesterol and blood lipids
  • Enhance heart function and protect blood vessels
  • Decrease blood pressure
  • Prevent blood clotting

Arginine from hemp protein stimulates the production of nitric oxide (relaxing blood vessels) and cuts the levels of inflammatory CRP, according to a study of over 13,000 participants. Both effects can prevent heart disease [17, 31, 32].

Cholesterol and Blood Lipids

Omega-3 fatty acids help to keep blood lipids in check, but the specific effects of hemp seeds and their oil are not well studied in humans.

In 14 healthy volunteers, hemp seed oil (30 ml daily for 4 weeks) had only minor effects on blood lipids and cholesterol [33].

Low doses of hemp seed oil (3 g daily) enriched red blood cells of 36 children with omega-3 fatty acids but didn’t affect their blood lipid profile [34].

In animal trials, hemp seeds lowered cholesterol levels and provided antioxidant support [35, 36].

In test tubes, hemp protein acted similar to statins (lipid-lowering drugs) by blocking an enzyme vital for the production of LDL cholesterol. According to another cell-based experiment, hemp seed extract may prevent LDL oxidation, a major cause of atherosclerosis [37, 38, 39].

Still, this doesn’t mean hemp seeds would do the same in the human body.

2) Brain and Nerve Protection

Dietary fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, are essential for mental health and brain development. Thanks to their high omega-3 content and other anti-inflammatory components, hemp seeds may protect the brain and nerves [40].

Multiple Sclerosis

In 100 patients with multiple sclerosis, a combination of hemp seed and evening primrose oils helped repair nerve damage and improved the symptoms [41].

Researchers observed the ability of hemp seed oil to combat autoimmune nerve impairment (as seen in MS) in a study on mice [42].

3) Constipation

In a clinical trial of 120 patients, hemp seed pills (15 g daily for 8 weeks) improved the symptoms of constipation by 43% vs. 8% placebo [43].

Hemp seeds stimulated the colon and relieved constipation in one study on rats [44].

Note: The majority of fiber, which supports bowel movements, is in the outer shell of hemp seeds. Whole seeds would thus be more beneficial for constipation, but their consumption comes with certain risks (see “Hemp Seeds FAQ” for more details).

4) Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a complex condition that involves obesity, insulin resistance, and increased blood lipids [45].

According to a large observational trial (1.2K patients), high intake of arginine from plant sources can lower the risk of metabolic syndrome by 42%. With 4.6 g of arginine per 100 g, hemp seeds are among the best plant sources of this amino acid [46, 47].

Consumption of both soluble and insoluble fiber from hemp seeds may reduce the risk of diabetes [48, 49].

In cell studies, hemp protein cut the levels of glucose using the same mechanism as diabetes drugs called gliptins. Scientists speculate if hemp protein may enhance their potency while reducing side effects, but the available evidence is far from conclusive [50, 51].

5) PMS and Menopause

Supplementation with essential fatty acids found in hemp seeds (1-2 g daily for 6 months) reduced the symptoms of PMS in 120 women [52].

The beneficial effects mostly come from gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which may reduce inflammation and maintain hormonal balance [53, 54].

When women enter menopause, they lose the beneficial effects of estrogen and often face unpleasant mood swings. Hemp seeds reduced anxiety in postmenopausal rats [55, 56].

Bone loss and osteoporosis are one of the hallmarks of menopause. A supplement with GLA increased bone mineral density (BMD) in 65 older women [57].

Hemp Seed Oil Benefits for the Skin

Hemp seeds are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) that nurture the skin and prevent disorders such as [58, 6, 7]:

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Skin UV damage

Although people tend to focus on omega-3s, GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid from hemp seeds that delivers powerful skin benefits.

6) Eczema and Dry Skin

In 20 patients with eczema, hemp seed oil (30 ml daily) supplied the skin with PUFAs and reduced symptoms such as skin irritation. It showed better results than olive oil [59].

According to clinical trials, foods and oils rich in gamma-linolenic acid can soften the skin and relieve eczema [60, 61, 62].

7) Acne

Propionibacterium acnes is, you guessed it, a leading cause of acne. Hemp seed extract inhibited the growth and reduced inflammation caused by this germ in test tubes [63].

A review of herbs used for skin conditions underlined hemp seed oil as a potential remedy for dry skin, eczema, acne, psoriasis, and more [64].

Hemp seeds are rich in oil, but it’s not sure if they would deliver the same health benefits.

Limitations and Caveats

Despite the fantastic nutritional profile of hemp seeds and their potential health benefits, we lack solid clinical data to shed more light on this peculiar food. Most findings stem from low-quality clinical, animal, and cell-based research.

Also, the majority of trials have examined hemp seed oil, isolated nutrients, and active components but not the seeds themselves. Researchers emphasize the need to better understand the metabolism of hemp seeds and their nutrients [1].

Now let’s see if there’s anything about hemp seeds that should concern you.

Hemp Seeds Side Effects

Clinical trials with hemp seeds and their oil haven’t reported major side effects in children and adults [33, 43, 41, 34].

Hemp seeds are natural plant food, and there’s no apparent reason to avoid them unless you’re allergic to hemp (Cannabis sativa).

But… There’s public concern about psychoactive THC in hemp seeds, and it may be more than just “anti-cannabis propaganda.”

Although the seeds contain only trace amounts of THC, CBD and other cannabinoids (even in marijuana strains), contamination with THC from the plant is possible [65].

As a matter of fact, doctors reported a case of one child with mildly altered behavior due to 3-week hemp seed oil consumption [66].

Some lab analyses confirmed there’s a possibility of hemp seed THC contamination. If you are concerned about this, consult with your doctor before consuming hemp seeds. To learn more about this issue and how to overcome it, read “Hemp Seeds FAQ” below [67].

How to Eat Hemp Seeds

Tips

In terms of quantity, you can start with 1 tablespoon daily and increase to a standard serving for seeds: 28-30g or 3 tbsp. Hemp seed oil showed beneficial effects in doses of 20-30 ml daily.

If you’re aiming to boost your nutrition, stick with the seeds because they contain healthy fats + loads of other essential nutrients.

Hemp seeds have a rich nutty flavor, and they blend well in salads, smoothies, spreads, oatmeal, etc. They’re also a good option for people with nut allergies. Delicious hemp seeds recipes are easy to come across – go find your favorites.

Besides the oil, other products made from hemp seeds include:

  • Hemp butter: blended hemp seeds +/- added oil
  • Hemp flour: a byproduct of oil extraction (no oil)
  • Hemp protein: hemp flour with a higher protein content
  • Hemp milk: blended hemp seeds with water +/- other ingredients

Hemp Seeds FAQ

What Is in Hemp Hearts?

Hemp hearts are seeds without the shell, also known as hulled/shelled hemp seeds or hemp kernels. They are more common, tastier, and easier to digest than the whole seeds.

On the other hand, whole seeds contain much more fiber and may help relieve constipation. The shell is quite hard so you may want to go for ground seeds or pills. Also, you can sprout whole seeds only.

Do Hemp Seeds Contain THC? Can They Get You High?

First of all, hemp is an ‘industrial’ strain of Cannabis sativa with negligible THC content. Secondly, the seeds themselves contain only trace amounts of cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, even in marijuana strains.

However, THC from the plant may end up on the outer surface of the seeds during the harvest or storage. In most countries, the official limit for THC content in hemp seeds is 10 mcg/1g (10 ppm), but some products may have up to 12 times more THC [67].

But how’s that if hemp doesn’t contain THC? Well, due to weak regulations, some producers actually cultivate THC-rich strains instead of industrial hemp [68].

Still, it’s highly unlikely that eating the seeds will get you high. To be 100% sure your product has no THC:

  • Buy from trusted brands that test their products for THC content
  • Choose hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds) instead of the whole seeds
  • If you consume whole seeds, though, make sure to wash them thoroughly first

Hemp Seeds and Drug Tests

If hemp seeds can be contaminated with THC, can they also cause you to fail a routine drug test? Well, they might just do so! Some people did have detectable urine THC levels after consuming hemp seed oil, butter, and other products [69, 70].

On the other hand, some studies didn’t detect THC after regular hemp seed consumption [71, 72].

If you follow the above steps, you won’t have issues with THC contamination and drug test results. To stay on the safe side, however, you may want to skip hemp seeds a few days before the scheduled testing.

Takeaway

Hemp seeds are made from industrial cannabis (Cannabis sativa), also known as hemp. They are loaded with high-quality protein, healthy fats, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, and more. The polyunsaturated fatty acids in hemp seeds have an ideal omega-6/omega-3 ratio.

Overall, this superfood may combat inflammation, protect the heart, brain, and blood vessels, and soothe the skin. But despite their promising health effects, clinical research on hemp seeds and their therapeutic potential remains limited.

You can use hemp seeds in salads, smoothies, spreads, oatmeal, and other delicious recipes. Butter, oil, milk, flour, and protein powder from hemp seeds are also available.

To avoid contamination with psychoactive THC, make sure to buy from verified suppliers who test their products. If you consume whole seeds (with the shell), wash them thoroughly first.

Hemp seeds deliver a blast of essential nutrients and benefits for your heart, brain, and skin. Here’s how to use them.

Hemp heart seeds side effects

Hemp is a plant. It is the same species of plant as cannabis. But unlike cannabis, hemp contains very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), less than 0.3%. It is legal to sell hemp and hemp products in the U.S. But it is not legal to isolate cannabinoids from hemp to include in foods or dietary supplements. This is because one of the cannabinoids, called cannabidiol, is approved as a prescription drug. Since it’s a prescription drug, it can’t be included in dietary supplements. Hemp flowers, leaves, seed, seed oil, and protein are used as food and/or medicine.

Hemp is used for constipation, high cholesterol, eczema (atopic dermatitis), arthritis, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Hemp is used to make cloth, cosmetics, rope, printer’s ink, wood preservative, detergents, soaps, and lighting oil.

Don’t confuse hemp with Canadian hemp, hemp agrimony, cannabis, or cannabidiol (CBD).

How does it work ?

Uses & Effectiveness ?

Insufficient Evidence for

  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis). Taking hemp seed oil might relieve some symptoms of eczema, including dryness and itchiness. But it doesn’t seem to work better than taking olive oil.
  • Inherited tendency towards high cholesterol (familial hypercholesterolemia). Early research shows that taking hemp seed oil doesn’t lower cholesterol levels in children with familial hypercholesterolemia who are already following a low-fat diet.
  • Obesity. Early research shows that taking a hemp oil extract does not reduce weight in overweight adults.
  • Stress. Early research shows that taking a hemp oil extract does not reduce stress in overweight adults.
  • Arthritis.
  • Asthma.
  • Cancer.
  • Constipation.
  • Glaucoma.
  • Headache.
  • Hypertension.
  • Insomnia.
  • Malaria.
  • Menstrual cramps.
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS).
  • Other conditions.

More evidence is needed to rate hemp for these uses.

Side Effects

Special Precautions and Warnings

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn’t enough reliable information to know if hemp is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Children: There isn’t enough information to know whether hemp can be safely used by children. Hemp seed oil has caused rare cases of sleepiness and blood shot eyes in children.

Allergy to cannabis: People who are allergic to cannabis might also be allergic to hemp. Use hemp with caution if you are allergic to cannabis.

Low blood pressure: Hemp protein might lower blood pressure. In some people this might make blood pressure fall too low. Use hemp protein with caution if you have low blood pressure.

Surgery: Hemp protein might lower blood pressure. In some people this might make blood pressure fall too low, especially during surgery. Stop using hemp protein at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Hemp Seed Nutritional Information

Michelle Arnold / EyeEm

Hemp seeds are a great source of lean protein for vegetarians and vegans and are easy to add to your meals. They’re particularly great for vegetarians following a high-protein diet, such as the Slow Carb Diet. You can sprinkle them on salads, noodles dishes and vegetable stir-fries, or add them into a morning breakfast bowl or smoothie. But what nutrients are you getting when you do? What is the nutritional value of hemp seeds?

According to CalorieCount, one serving of hemp seeds, which is three tablespoons, provides:

  • Calories: 180, Calories from Fat 126
  • Total Fat 14.0g 22%,
  • Saturated Fat 1.5g 8%, Polyunsaturated Fat 10.0g, Monounsaturated Fat 1.5g
  • Potassium 300mg 9%
  • Total Carbohydrates 2.0g 1%
  • Dietary Fiber 2.0g 8%
  • Protein 10.0g
  • Vitamin A: 0%, Vitamin C: 0%, Calcium: 2%, Iron: 20%

Essential Fatty Acids

Hemp seeds are great for getting a little extra protein here and there, but most people love hemp seeds for their essential fatty acids, that is, their Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.

Three tablespoons of hemp seeds (one serving) provide 7.5 grams of Omega-6 fatty acids and 3 grams of Omega-3 as well as 0.6 grams of Super Omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) and 0.3 g Super Omega-3 Stearidonic Acid (SDA). Along with flax oil and flax seeds, hemp seeds are one of the best vegetarian and vegan sources of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

Other Nutrients

Along with protein, fiber, and iron, hemp seeds are also a great source of a host of other vital nutrients, including magnesium, thiamin, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese and Vitamin E.

What are the health benefits of hemp?

We include products we think are useful for our readers. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here’s our process.

Hemp is a plant grown in the northern hemisphere that takes about 3-4 months to mature. Hemp seeds can be consumed or used to produce a variety of food products including hemp milk, hemp oil, hemp cheese substitutes and hemp-based protein powder.

Hemp seeds have a mild, nutty flavor. Hemp milk is made from hulled hemp seeds, water, and sweetener. Hemp oil has a strong “grassy” flavor.

Hemp is commonly confused with marijuana. It belongs to the same family, but the two plants are very different. Marijuana is grown to contain high amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical that is responsible for its psychoactive properties. Hemp describes the edible plant seeds and only contains a trace amount of THC.

This feature is part of a collection of articles on the health benefits of popular foods. It provides a nutritional breakdown of hemp and an in-depth look at its possible health benefits, how to incorporate more hemp into your diet and any potential health risks of consuming hemp.

Hemp leaves, powder, seeds and oil.

Share on Pinterest Hemp is available in a variety of forms, including oils and powders.

According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, a 2 tablespoon serving of hemp seeds weighing 20 grams (g) contains :

  • 111 calories
  • 6.31 g of protein
  • 9.75 g of fat
  • 1.73 g of carbohydrates (including 0.8 g of fiber and 0.3 g of sugar)
  • 14 milligrams (mg) of calcium
  • 1.59 mg of iron
  • 140 mg of magnesium
  • 330 mg of phosphorus
  • 240 mg of potassium
  • 1.98 mg of zinc
  • 22 micrograms (mcg) of folate

Hemp seeds also provide vitamin C, some B vitamins, and vitamins A and E.

The nutritional content of hemp is linked to a number of potential health benefits.

Healthy fats

The American Heart Association recommends consuming two 3.5-ounce servings of fish, especially oily fish, each week. This is because fish is a major source of omega-3 fatty acids. If a person does not regularly consume fish, they may not be getting enough DHA or EPA.

Hemp is a plant-based source of concentrated omega-3 fatty acids. However, the fatty acids that hemp contains are alpha-linolenic acids (ALA), which are poorly converted to DHA and EPA in the body at a rate of only about 2 to 10 percent.

Despite this inefficient conversion rate, hemp is one of the richest sources of ALA, and so still represents a very good source of healthy fat, particularly for those who do not consume fish or eggs.

Hemp contains a specific omega-6 fatty acid called GLA and hemp oil contains an even higher percentage of GLA.

Hemp seeds also contain phytosterols, which help in reducing the amount of cholesterol in the body by removing fat build-up in the arteries.

Protein source

Hemp contains all 10 essential amino acids, making it a good plant-based protein source. Hemp does not contain phytates, which are found in many vegetarian protein sources and can interfere with the absorption of essential minerals.

Magnesium

Magnesium plays an important role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, including the metabolism of food and synthesis of fatty acids and proteins. Magnesium is involved in neuromuscular transmission and activity and muscle relaxation.

Magnesium deficiency — which is especially prevalent in older populations — is linked to insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, coronary heart disease, and osteoporosis. Nuts and seeds like hemp are some of the best sources of magnesium.

Research suggests that people experiencing premenstrual syndrome (PMS) may be able to alleviate symptoms such as bloating, insomnia, leg swelling, weight gain and breast tenderness by ensuring an adequate intake of magnesium. Magnesium combined with vitamin B6 appears to be most efficacious in these instances.

Hemp is a plant whose seeds can be consumed or used to make food products such as milk and oil. It provides protein, fiber, and healthy fats, and it may be useful as part of a weight-loss diet. Risks include digestive problems. Find out more about hemp seeds and how to include them in your diet.

How to germinate cannabis seeds

Germination is the process in which a new plant begins to grow from a seed. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your cannabis garden.

Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality. For more info on how to buy marijuana seeds, check out our Guide to buying cannabis seeds.

When acquiring seeds, you want to make sure they are matured and that they appear dark brown with lighter accents and a hard feel. You don’t want a seed that feels fresh and looks green, which indicates that the seed hasn’t reached full maturity.

Self-isolating? Order cannabis online with Leafly Pickup or Delivery

Once you have your cannabis seeds, make sure you have the space necessary to allow your plants to grow and be healthy. Don’t pop seeds when you are unsure of your grow space, time availability, or intention with your garden.

Check out these additional resources for more info on cannabis seeds:

What’s the best way to germinate cannabis seeds?

Cannabis seeds require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. Because of this, there are many methods to germinate your seeds. The most common and simplest method involves the use of paper towels saturated in water.

For this method you will need:

  • Two clean plates
  • Paper towels
  • Seeds

Step 1:

Take four sheets of paper towels and soak them with distilled water. The sheets should be soaked but shouldn’t have excess water running off.

Step 2:

Take two of the paper towels and place them on a plate. Then, place the cannabis seeds at least an inch apart from each other and cover them with the remaining two sheets of water-soaked paper towels.

Step 3:

To create a dark, protected space, take another plate and flip it over to cover the seeds (like a dome).

Step 4:

Make sure the area they’re kept in is warm, somewhere between 70-90°F.

After these steps have been completed, it’s time to wait. You can check the paper towels to make sure they’re still saturated, and if they seem to be losing their moisture, you can apply more water to keep the seeds happy.

Some seeds germinate very rapidly while others can take several days. You know a seed has germinated once the seed splits and a single sprout appears.

This is the taproot, which will become the main stem of the plant, and seeing it is a sign of successful germination. It’s important to keep this area sterile, so don’t touch the seed or taproot as the seed begins to split.

Transplanting germinated cannabis seeds

Once you see the taproot, it’s time to transfer your germinated seed into its growing medium. Small 2-inch pots are a good place to start.

Fill the pots with loose, airy potting soil and poke a hole in the middle about a quarter-inch down using a pen or pencil.

To transfer the seed, use a pair of tweezers to gently pick it up, then drop the seed in the hole with the taproot facing down. Lightly cover it with soil.

Next, you’ll need to water the soil. Initially, use a spray bottle to provide moisture without over-saturating the soil. You want to give the seed water, but over-watering can suffocate and kill the delicate sprout.

Pay attention to the temperature and the moisture level of the soil to keep the seed happy, and within a week or so you should see a seedling begin to grow from the soil.

Germinating seeds doesn’t always go as planned. Some seeds will be duds. Others will be slow and take longer to sprout. But some will pop quickly and grow rapidly.

This is the beauty of seeds—often, you can tell which plants or genetics will thrive right from the get-go. This will help you determine which plants you want to take cuttings from for clones and which to breed with other strong plants to create a seed bank of your own.

Follow these simple steps on the best way to properly germinate your cannabis seeds, and find out how to transplant the seeds to soil after germination.

how long will marijuana seeds last

How Long Do Marijuana Seeds Last?

By James Alexander – Updated 03 January 2021

how long do marijuana seeds last

How long do marijuana seeds last?

It’s an important question.

Cannabis seeds are EXPENSIVE and if you have some leftover from your recent grow, you want to know how long they will be viable for so you can use them again.

The germination rate of Marijuana seeds naturally declines over time.

However, if stored correctly, your seeds can last for up to a decade! To last that long, they need to be high-quality and be stored in a refrigerator.

If stored in a dry and dark place, they will last from one to five years.

Read on to find out how to store your seeds correctly to keep them viable for longer!

Table of contents

How Long Are Cannabis Seeds Viable?

Good quality seeds last longer, but how long marijuana seeds last depends on their care and storage.

Ideally, seeds should be planted as soon as possible.

Although older seeds do germinate, the amount they do is significantly decreased as time goes by.

Experts recommend planting your seeds in the first three years.

Factors like light, temperature, and humidity will affect your seeds.

If your seeds are exposed to any of these, they will begin to start using their energy stores before they are planted and will eventually not germinate.

High humidity can lead to fungus growing and destroying your seeds.

This is why storage in a cool and dark environment is a must.

How To Tell If Your Cannabis Seeds Are Still Good

You can tell if your seeds are healthy by examining them closely.

Investing in high-quality seeds is the first step to getting a good yield.

Healthy seeds are dark in color and appear to have a waxy coating on the outside when examined under lights.

They feel firm and sturdy to the touch and do not break under slight pressure.

Old or low-quality seeds are weak and will likely crack or crumble easily under small amounts of pressure.

You do not want to waste your time growing these seeds as they will likely crack in storage and never germinate.

Seeds that are too young are lighter in color, like green and white.

These seeds will either take a very long time to germinate or not germinate at all.

A surefire way to check if your seeds are still good is to try and germinate them.

Seeds take around 3 days sprout. If your seeds do not germinate, they’re of no use!

Will Cracked Marijuana Seeds Still Germinate?

No, seeds that crack or get damaged will not grow.

When a seed cracks, its insides are exposed to light and air and thus, it cannot germinate.

Make sure you store your seeds in a way where they do not rattle around or hit each other.

You can also stuff your containers with cotton wool to prevent damage.

One time when people sometimes intentionally crack the outside of a seed is during germination.

This is done to allow for the taproot to sprout before planting but is not a method used by everyone.

How To Make Your Marijuana Seeds Last Longer?

How long marijuana seeds are viable for depends on several factors.

The temperature you store them at must be low.

Higher temperatures can lead to germination and even rotting.

The ideal temperature for storing seeds is 5 degrees Celsius and lower.

Light also signals the seeds to start growing and must be blocked.

Humidity or moisture feeds plants and helps them grow.

This is why your stored seeds should be far away from a humid environment.

Most experts recommend a humidity level below 5%.

Lastly, try to reduce the amount of oxygen the seeds are exposed to as much as possible to avoid the growth of bacteria and parasites.

Use A Reliable Seed Bank

Anyone can build an attractive website and sell seeds, but how do you know that you’re getting high-quality stuff?

First, look at the website and the location of the seed bank.

If it is an offline retailer, check out the address of the shop and make sure its legitimate and not just some P.O box.

You can also check the reviews online.

If it is an online business, look at the website and its reviews.

Sites that have several positive reviews can be trusted.

Next, look at the shipping details of the company.

How long will your seeds take to reach your mailbox? Do they offer discreet packaging?

Make sure that they offer a delivery guarantee.

This means that if your product is seized or damaged along the way, you will be guaranteed a replacement.

This is often the mark of a trustworthy and confident seller.

Look at the variety of seeds the store offers.

The bigger the collection, the more options you have to choose from.

Finally, a company should have a high success rate.

If they have great reviews and offer replacements, free shipping, and great customer service, you can confidently take a chance on them.

Select Strains With Strong Genetics

Good genes create good plants.

Just like in human beings, characteristics of parent plants are passed down into their offspring.

Each strain carries its unique genotype and phenotype.

The genotype is the genetic makeup or blueprint of the plant.

The phenotype is influenced by the environment it was grown in and has many effects on its color, smell, and potency.

Breeders work hard to isolate specific strains over generations of plants.

You can differentiate between strains with strong genetic backgrounds based on effect, taste, look, and smell.

Some strains also have their unique qualities due to being grown in different areas of the world over centuries.

There are thousands of strains available, with each having slightly different characteristics due to hybridization.

Do your research and make sure your seller has a good reputation.

You can find this out by reading on their website and seeing if they provide information on their breeding procedures and plants.

Store Them Properly

The type of container you store it in will affect how long your seeds will last.

Improperly stored seeds will lose their ability to germinate quickly.

It is advisable to always add a desiccant like silica gel packs or rice to remove humidity.

It also absorbs excess ethylene that is produced during the aging process and prolongs the life of your seeds.

The most popular methods for seed storage are-

Ziplock Bag

A Ziplock bag works well when you want to store seeds for a short duration of around 5-6 months.

Any longer than that and your seeds may start to go bad.

Put your seeds into your bag, try to remove as much air as possible and then seal it tightly.

Then keep your bag in a cool and dark place.

Vacuum- Sealed Bag

A step further than a regular Ziplock bag, a vacuum-sealed bag will ensure that there is no air left inside your bag.

This will allow you to store your seeds for a longer period.

You will still need to ensure to keep it in a cool, dark environment.

Some seed banks deliver seeds in a vacuum-sealed package that can store them until they’re ready for planting.

Airtight Container

Another great method for long term storage is keeping your seeds in an airtight container.

Glass containers are preferable as they are more resistant to heat and UV ray damage.

Just make sure to keep them away from light.

Refrigeration

If you are looking to store your seeds for over a year, you can refrigerate them.

Refrigerators offer constant low temperatures and dark and moisture-free environment.

Keep your seeds at the back of your fridge so that they are away from any potential moisture or temperature changes from opening it often.

Make sure the container or bag your seeds are in is airtight and heatproof.

You will also want to make sure that your fridge is “no-frost” or has a no-frost area to shield seeds from frost damage.

Freezer

Freezing marijuana seeds is a debated method.

Freezing is used by some to store their seeds for years on end.

Others say that it ends up killing seeds instead of protecting them.

Some growers even believe that freezing seeds can damage their internal cells.

Using special laboratories and equipment can allow for the careful freezing of seeds, but this is not a very cheap or accessible option for many.

How To Properly Preserve Cannabis Seeds

How To Properly Preserve Cannabis Seeds

Cannabis seeds, with their tough outer shell, seem pretty hardy. And while nature has definitely designed them to hold up to a wide variety of conditions, cannabis seeds aren’t invincible. Rapid changes in temperature and high humidity, for example, can quickly ruin a batch of seeds. Luckily, caring for your seeds is simple. Keep reading to learn how.

YOUR SEEDS ARE ALIVE

Many people forget this, but it’s true—your cannabis seeds are living organisms. Before they germinate, however, they are in a state of rest (much like some animals when they hibernate). And like all living things, seeds can die. When storing your seeds, you’ll want to give them the optimal conditions to ensure they hold through until you’re ready to germinate and plant them.

IDEAL CONDITIONS FOR CANNABIS SEEDS

Cannabis seeds have three main enemies:

  • Light
  • Humidity
  • Temperature changes

Ideally, you want to store your seeds in a cool, dark, and dry place. Whenever possible, keep your seeds in their original packaging. At Royal Queen Seeds, we’ve specially designed our packaging to protect our seeds until you’re ready to plant them.

If your seeds get exposed to light or rapid changes in temperature, these conditions will trigger them to use up their nutrient stores before they ever see soil, meaning they won’t have the nutrients they need to germinate. High humidity, on the other hand, can trigger fungi to grow on your seeds.

EFFECTS OF HUMIDITY ON CANNABIS SEEDS

Humidity is easily one of the biggest threats to your seeds. Here is how different levels of humidity (% relative humidity) affect your cannabis seeds:

WHERE AND HOW TO STORE YOUR CANNABIS SEEDS

For short-term storage, a dark cupboard or drawer with stable temperatures is usually fine. Try to keep your seeds out of areas of your house that are susceptible to the natural temperature changes of your local environment.

If, for example, you live in an area with very warm daytime temperatures and cool nights, try to protect your seeds from these changes and don’t store them outside in a shed or garage.

For long-term storage, it’s best to keep your seeds in a sealed container inside the fridge. Remember that opening the door of your fridge can actually cause some pretty dramatic temperature shifts. If you happen to have a second fridge that gets used less often than the one in your kitchen, use that one to store your seeds.

Again, whenever possible, keep your seeds in their original packaging. If you do open a pack of seeds and have leftovers, transfer the extra seeds directly into a sealed airtight container.

Ziplock bags, for example, are great because you can remove all the air from them to create an almost vacuum-sealed container for your seeds. Once vacuum-sealed, put your bag inside a dark plastic bag or dark container to protect your seeds from your fridge light.

Remember, modern fridges are very dry. It’s super important your seeds aren’t directly exposed to these conditions, as the lack of humidity can cause them to use up their nutrient stores just to stay alive.

CAN YOU STORE SEEDS IN THE FREEZER?

Yes, cannabis seeds can be stored in the freezer. The lower the temperature, the slower they decline. However, it’s usually not necessary to freeze your seeds. Meet the conditions we outlined above, and you should be able to preserve your seeds for up to five years and still get a high germination rate.

KNOWING WHICH SEEDS TO PLANT AND WHICH TO STORE

When you’re ready to germinate your seeds, inspect them and germinate any seeds with damage to the outer shell first. The outer shell of your seeds is designed to protect the volatile genetics inside. Seeds with cracks in the outer shell are a lot more vulnerable and shouldn’t be stored.

At Royal Queen Seeds, we take pride in our work and want to ensure every grower only has the best genetics in their garden. That means we inspect all of our seeds before packaging. If you notice any damage to your RQS seeds, get in touch with our customer service team immediately.

TIPS FOR GERMINATING OLD CANNABIS SEEDS

We’ve all found an odd seed somewhere at the bottom of an old drawer or cupboard. Here are a few tips on how to germinate old cannabis seeds:

  • Pre-soakingwith enriched carbonated water

Before germinating your old seeds, try soaking them in carbonated water enriched with fulvic acid, germination booster, hydrogen peroxide, or gibberellic acid. For best results, use room temperature water and soak your seeds for 12 hours in a dark place.

  • Scaryour seeds

Older seeds often have an extra tough outer shell. Gently scratching this shell with some sandpaper can help moisture and warmth enter your seed at the time of germination. Try gently scarring your old cannabis seeds just before soaking to help them sprout.

  • Remove a seed’s ridge

The ridge is the slightly elevated side of your seed. Like other parts of the shell, this ridge can become extra tough over time. Removing it gently with a sharp Stanley blade can help your seed sprout.

  • Slice openyour seed

In a last attempt to germinate your seeds, creating a small cut in the seed’s shell may help. However, this is no miracle cure, and you’ll need to be careful to avoid damaging the inside of your seed.

Remember, some old seeds just won’t germinate no matter how much you try. Whenever possible, avoid buying more seeds than you plan to plant so as to avoid having any issues at the time of germination.

When stored properly, your cannabis seeds can easily hold up for numerous years. Click here to learn how best to preserve your weed seeds.

How to germinate cannabis seeds

Germination is the process in which a new plant begins to grow from a seed. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your cannabis garden.

Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality. For more info on how to buy marijuana seeds, check out our Guide to buying cannabis seeds.

When acquiring seeds, you want to make sure they are matured and that they appear dark brown with lighter accents and a hard feel. You don’t want a seed that feels fresh and looks green, which indicates that the seed hasn’t reached full maturity.

Once you have your cannabis seeds, make sure you have the space necessary to allow your plants to grow and be healthy. Don’t pop seeds when you are unsure of your grow space, time availability, or intention with your garden.

What’s the best way to germinate cannabis seeds?

Cannabis seeds require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. Because of this, there are many methods to germinate your seeds. The most common and simplest method involves the use of paper towels saturated in water.

For this method you will need:

  • Two clean plates
  • Paper towels
  • Seeds

Step 1:

Take four sheets of paper towels and soak them with distilled water. The sheets should be soaked but shouldn’t have excess water running off.

Step 2:

Take two of the paper towels and place them on a plate. Then, place the cannabis seeds at least an inch apart from each other and cover them with the remaining two sheets of water-soaked paper towels.

Step 3:

To create a dark, protected space, take another plate and flip it over to cover the seeds (like a dome).

Step 4:

Make sure the area they’re kept in is warm, somewhere between 70-90°F.

After these steps have been completed, it’s time to wait. You can check the paper towels to make sure they’re still saturated, and if they seem to be losing their moisture, you can apply more water to keep the seeds happy.

Some seeds germinate very rapidly while others can take several days. You know a seed has germinated once the seed splits and a single sprout appears.

This is the taproot, which will become the main stem of the plant, and seeing it is a sign of successful germination. It’s important to keep this area sterile, so don’t touch the seed or taproot as the seed begins to split.

Transplanting germinated cannabis seeds

Once you see the taproot, it’s time to transfer your germinated seed into its growing medium. Small 2-inch pots are a good place to start.

Fill the pots with loose, airy potting soil and poke a hole in the middle about a quarter-inch down using a pen or pencil.

To transfer the seed, use a pair of tweezers to gently pick it up, then drop the seed in the hole with the taproot facing down. Lightly cover it with soil.

Next, you’ll need to water the soil. Initially, use a spray bottle to provide moisture without over-saturating the soil. You want to give the seed water, but over-watering can suffocate and kill the delicate sprout.

Pay attention to the temperature and the moisture level of the soil to keep the seed happy, and within a week or so you should see a seedling begin to grow from the soil.

Germinating seeds doesn’t always go as planned. Some seeds will be duds. Others will be slow and take longer to sprout. But some will pop quickly and grow rapidly.

This is the beauty of seeds—often, you can tell which plants or genetics will thrive right from the get-go. This will help you determine which plants you want to take cuttings from for clones and which to breed with other strong plants to create a seed bank of your own.

Follow these simple steps on the best way to properly germinate your cannabis seeds, and find out how to transplant the seeds to soil after germination.
