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.

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

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.

What are high-CBD cannabis seeds?

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

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.

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

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.

We haven’t mentioned the flowering yet. Nevertheless this is a very important aspect for the choice of cannabis seeds. Some growers are looking for quick results and will therefore choose a fast flowering strain. Consider, for example the Northern Lights that only need 49 to 56 days to be ready for harvesting. Or how about Swiss Cheese that can be ready for harvest in just 42 to 56 days? A short flowering period also means that the chance of problems such as mold or plant diseases is smaller.

A large harvest isn’t of course a guarantee, because it depends on many factors. Consider, for example, the breeding technique, the plant’s health, diseases, humidity and soil values. However, there are species that are known to have the ability to produce (extremely) large harvests such as the Super Silver Haze that can produce up to 800 grams per m2 or our Sexxpot strain that produces up to 1000 grams per m2.
