do marijuana seeds contain thc

Quote:
Marijuana was discovered, it appears, in Central Asia, perhaps thanks to birds. Pigeons love the seeds of marijuana, and get a little tipsy on them. And this may be what tipped people off to what it was. It was probably purely accidental that this plant, this chemical, happened to be active in the human brain. But that’s no different from any other of the accidents on which evolution and co-evolution are built. The plant seized on this accident.

A GC–MS method was performed to determine the total Delta9-THC content in both drug- and fiber-type cannabis seeds. Drug-type seeds were found to contain much higher levels of Delta9-THC (35.6–124 mug/g) than fiber (hemp) seeds (0–12 mug/g). The majority of Delta9-THC was found to be located on the surface of the seeds. Approximately 90% of the total Delta9-THC was removed by a simple, quick wash with chloroform. Washed drug-type seeds contained less than 10 mug/g. Separation of the seeds into the kernel and testa showed that the bulk of Delta9-THC is located in the testa, mainly on the outside. The kernels of drug- and fiber-type cannabis seeds contained less than 2 and 0.5 mug Delta9-THC/g seeds, respectively. Fluctuations in the Delta9-THC content of different replicates of the same type of seeds could be the result of the degree of contamination on the outside of the seeds.

So, do these seeds contain the magical but controversial chemical THC?

If you filled a 5 gallon bucket with seeds you would have the same amount of THC as you would in a bonghit. (that’s not a joke by the way)

One of the most fascinating things about cannabis seeds is that they all look the same. It doesn’t matter if they are Blueberry X Blueberry indica or Blue Dream sativa, the seeds will be identical. What does this mean for people who grow marijuana? It means that you must buy seeds from a reputable source to be sure that the seeds are what they say they are. It is impossible to know just by looking at the seeds. Instead, you will have to see what grows after planting the seeds.

Across the world, cultures use cannabis seeds for a number of spiritual purposes. For instance, some people who practice the Taoist religion believe that hemp seeds, when mixed with ginseng, can help people to see the future. The Taoists also believe that if you eat hempseeds on their own, you can keep demons from entering into your life.

After several weeks of growing, someone can test to see if the seeds are mature by picking a single seed off of the plant. Again, a mature cannabis seed should be brown in color, be very hard, and should have visible stripes. Once the seeds seem mature, all of the seeds can be harvested. These seeds can be really deep into the plant, so sometimes people really have to dig into the plant in order to get all of the seeds out. Again, there can be hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of seeds to harvest.

Marijuana is big business these days, and with more states than ever before making the consumption of pot legal, it’s no surprise that the concept is one that is always close to the top of newspaper headlines.

Many people choose to store their cannabis seeds in a refrigerator. You can get very good results from storing them in a fridge. It’s dark, it’s cool…but, refrigerators often harbor moisture. If seeds are stored in an area with too much moisture, they could grow mold. It’s best to store them in an airtight plastic container in the fridge if you are going to do that. Some people will also vacuum seal the seeds.

Hemp and cannabis actually come from the same plant, the seeds just come from different parts of the plan. Whether a seed is called a hemp seed or a cannabis seed depends on a couple of different factors.
