Like other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, CBN has its own unique set of benefits—it has been linked to providing aid for insomnia, pain, and inflammation, and more. It does not, however, have any psychoactive effects.
It’s been months since that little sprout first popped out of the ground, or you put that delicate clone into some soil. You’ve watched your plants grow and mature, get bigger and develop buds. You can’t wait to get those buds off the plant and put them into your lungs.

If you are going to dry trim, it’s helpful to cut branches to give them handles, making it easy to hang them. If you’re going to wet trim, cut branches so they’re easy to handle and snip buds off of.
If you’re growing multiple strains, they may ripen at different times. But you may still want to harvest all strains at the same time just to get trimming done all in one sitting, just keep in mind that some strains might get harvested on the early side and some on the late side.

Growing cannabis at home can be a fun project and a nice way to have your own cannabis plants on hand. You may want to grow cannabis indoors due to inclement weather in your area or due to a lack of green space in your yard. Start by germinating the seeds. Then, plant the seeds in soil or in a starter cube. Once the seeds have been planted, care for them properly so they grow and thrive.
To plant cannabis seeds indoors, first soak the seeds in lukewarm tap water for 12 hours. Discard any seeds that float to the top. Then, place the seeds on a damp paper towel on a plate with 1 inch (2.5 cm) of space between each seed. Cover the seeds with another damp paper towel. Keep the seeds in a spot that remains between 70-80°F (21-27°C), and spray the paper towels with water whenever they start to dry out. The seeds will sprout in 2-3 days. When they do, fill pots or a growing tray 3/4 of the way with loose potting soil that has a pH between 5.8 and 6.3. Press the soil down lightly, leaving some air in it. Then, use a pencil to poke 1 inch (2.5 cm) holes in the soil. Place the sprouted seeds vertically in the holes and fill the holes with potting soil. Water the soil thoroughly and place the pots or tray in a spot that’s always 75°F (24°C) or warmer. Set up a grow light over the seeds and leave it on at all times. Water the seeds every day so the soil doesn’t dry out. The seedlings will emerge in 2-4 weeks. To learn how to use cool white grow lights to help your cannabis seeds grow, keep reading!
