do marijuana seeds have thc in them

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:

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

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

How to germinate marijuana seeds

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.

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

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

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

In my legal system, cannabis seeds are mentioned among the cannabis related products that are prohibited.

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)

In layman’s terms; There isn’t enough THC to warrant extracting the THC from them. You’re better off to add your seeds to your salad and enjoy their crunch, or grow them out. There just may be a gem hidden in your pile of bag seeds.

I am asking this question not because I want to extract THC from my bag seeds but because I am wondering if that’s why Marijuana seeds are illegal. I was thinking about this when I was at TheGrowery’s older, super-hot sister-site TheShroomery, since psilocybian-mushroom spores are legal everywhere in the U.S. (expect states like California and Georgia) and they are legal because of the fact the spores DO NOT contain any psilocybian/psilocyin. The funny thing is that mushroom spores are *very* easy to grow into psychoactive mycelium and a little harder to grow into mushrooms, thus making psilocybian mushroom spores silly to make legal.

If you can answer, thank you and good night.

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.

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.

The vast majority of cannabis seeds on the market are either indica or sativa strains. There is a third strain, too, called ruderalis. Most of the marijuana out there is a hybrid of these strains or a mix up of them. You might see, for instance, a strain described as sativa-dominant, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s all sativa. This is due to the dizzying array of hybrids that have been created.

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.

5 Most Cannabis Seeds are Either Indica or Sativa Strains

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.

The interesting thing about cannabis seeds is that they are quite fascinating, and most people never even give them a second thought. These little brown seeds all generally look the same, but these small, speckled hulls hide hundreds of different variations of the plant. The same seeds that create industrial hemp or a refined sativa, also create autoflowering marijuana and strains with strange names, such as Poochie Love.

Here’s what happened: Back in the 1930s, the US was hit with the thought that hemp was terrible, so Congress essentially banned the use of hemp, except for in bird seed. For many years, decades, in fact, the seeds that were found in bird seed was viable, which means they could be planted and would grow into plants. In the 1960s, however, people started smoking cannabis and hemp recreationally, and Congress once again had to act. So, they started sterilizing all of the hemp seeds that went into bird seed. This means that it cannot grow and the seeds will not germinate. This is also the same hemp that is found in bird food, today.

Indica strains are known for being more sedative in nature, where sativa is often seen as more invigorating. The hybrids, which fall somewhere along the indica-sativa spectrum, will take on the traits of the dominant parent, in most cases, but genetics is a tricky topic, even when it comes to plants.
