marijuana seeds strains guide

Pay close attention to the terpene profile of each strain when shopping for seeds. If you like a peppery and savoury taste, scout out high levels of caryophyllene. Perhaps you prefer fresh, earthy notes? If so, look out for pinene and myrcene. Many smokers prefer fruity and sweet cannabis strains, which are loaded with terpenes such as linalool and limonene.

Much like cannabis can wake you up or put you to sleep, the herb works in one of two ways when it comes to socialising. Some varieties can make you more introverted and confined to your own head, and some can really help you open up.


In contrast, those growing in busy metropolises or illegal regions should try and select less smelly varieties. Thankfully, some strains are much more subtle in their aromas, including:

In the same way that each strain smells and tastes different, they also have distinct effects. Although most varieties produce high levels of THC, CBD, or both, they are still capable of producing wildly different sensations.

Cannabis flowers are full of phytochemical complexity, and a specific set of molecules, known as terpenes, underpin the taste of each toke. These aromatic hydrocarbons are found all throughout nature, and are responsible for the tastes of citrus peels and the unique flavours of different herbs and spices.

Also in the Cannabinoid Profile section of the seed selector it is also possible to make a selection for ‘High CBD’ this selection refers to the standard THC Dominant strains that we are used to, but with a decent level of CBD as well (for a THC Dominant strain). Please note: the High CBD section is limited, as many of the seed banks that produce the THC dominant strains do not bother to report the levels of CBD in their strains.

The amount of time taken for a plant to reach maturity can vary a little when grown outdoors. A plant will flower once it feels the daylight hours closing in. The initial stages of flowering are a little more gradual when plants are grown outdoors, this is due to the more gradual change in daylight hours.

The Environment selection tool allows you to filter a list of strains that are suitable for either for Indoor environments, outdoor environments, or greenhouse. Many strains available are suitable for all three environments, and will show up regardless of which you select. However some strains are ONLY suitable for indoor, and some strains are ONLY suitable outdoor environments, this can be for many different reasons such as an ‘Indoor Only’ strain hasn’t been tested on the wider range of pathogens, disease and general contaminants that it may come into contact with when grown outdoor. Or an ‘Outdoor Only’ strain may grow too tall for an indoor environment. If you know what you are looking for is an indoor strain, then select ‘Indoor’ on the seed selector to ensure that no Outdoor only strains make their way into the selection.

2. Fill any left over space in the tube with cotton wool, or a foam insert such as that used for ear plugs, or the sort used for earphone covers.
