In commercial cannabis production, generally, growers will plant many seeds of one strain and choose the best plant. They will then take clones from that individual plant, which allows for consistent genetics for mass production.
Growing marijuana takes a certain level of commitment: time, energy, and financial resources, so be sure you can commit to the whole process.
Cannabis seeds vs. clones
Once you see the taproot, it’s time to transfer your germinated seed into its growing medium, such as soil.
Another drawback to clones is they can take on negative traits from the mother plant as well. If the mother has a disease, attracts pests, or grows weak branches, its clones will probably have the same issues.
Germination is the process in which a seed sprouts and begins to grow into a new plant. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your weed grow.
The Universal Symbol on the front of the Container holding seeds and the receptacle containing each Immature plant, no smaller than ½ of an inch by ½ of an inch, with the following statement directly below the Universal Symbol: “Contains Marijuana.
The Medical Marijuana Center that sold the seeds or Immature plant to the patient.
The Retail Marijuana Store that sold the seeds or Immature plant to the consumer.
Prior to Transfer to a Retail Marijuana Establishment, every Container of Retail Marijuana seeds and all receptacles holding an Immature plant shall be affixed with a label that includes at least the license number of the Retail Marijuana Cultivation Facility where the Retail Marijuana that produced the seeds or the Immature plant was grown.
Prior to Transfer to a Medical Marijuana Business, every Container of Medical Marijuana seeds and all receptacles holding an Immature plant shall be affixed with a label that includes at least the license number of the Optional Premises Cultivation Operation where the Medical Marijuana that produced the seeds or the Immature plant was grown.
Keep in mind that the simple process of packaging and storing cannabis seeds can also affect their appearance. Abrupt changes in humidity, temperature, or light exposure can make some seeds appear darker or lighter than others, but ultimately have no effect on their quality.
This is absolutely not true. As we explained earlier, cannabis seeds naturally look different, and no single physical trait of a seed can tell you whether that seed contains the genetics for a male or female plant. The only way to tell a female cannabis plant from a male is by looking at its flowers when it begins to sex. Don’t be fooled into throwing out perfectly healthy seeds just because a popular internet chart told you so.
Growing Seeds From A Bag (Bagseed)
If you are still unsure about the quality of your seeds after analysing their appearance and toughness, it’s time to put your lab coat and goggles on. Well, not quite. This test is extremely easy and only has two possible outcomes. Fill up a drinking glass or glass jar with water (preferably spring or distilled) and place your seeds on the surface.
With this said, you may get lucky if the strain they were growing really is prime. In this case, it’s worth carrying out the following test to see if it’s worth germinating.
A solid way to obtain great seeds is to find a reputable seed bank. These companies pride themselves of their breeding skills and make sure that their customers receive exactly what has been advertised. They have reputations to cater to, so delivering anything less would only harm their image.
