certified organic marijuana 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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Humboldt Seed Company, the largest legal cannabis seed seller in California, has announced a partnership with British Columbia-based Nymera to offer the first feminized, organic-certified seeds in the world to Canadian and global markets. For the first time, Canadian licensed producers will have ready and consistent access to these time-tested heritage genetics and new varietals.

These organic Pro-Cert certified seeds are grown by Nymera, a licensed producer specializing in fresh frozen, terpene-rich, extraction-ready whole flower, on its 86 acres of pristine, organic farmland in Westwold, British Columbia, where Humboldt Seed Company’s cannabis breeding specialists guided the effort from day one.

Nymera co-founder and CEO Rick Gill, whose work in the cannabis industry since 2016 has included hands-on cultivation experience, says the company is proud to partner with Humboldt Seed Company to help bring its genetics to Canadian and international cannabis cultivators.

“We are excited to share a piece of Humboldt’s cannabis breeding heritage with the world,” says Ben Lind, Humboldt Seed Company’s Chief Science Officer. Lind has spent his career immersed in the culture of growing and breeding cannabis in Northern California, where his passion for saving artisanal varietals includes using ancient genetics as a foundation for creating the strains of the future.

Pro-Cert is accredited by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to provide third-party certification to the Canadian Organic Regime (COR) and its equivalency arrangements. This protection, along with the expertise gained by Humboldt Seed Company founder and CEO Nathaniel Pennington after decades of phenotype hunting and genetics development in Humboldt County and elsewhere, is now available by way of several notable varietals.
