A lot of classic weed strains that have been around for a while come in feminized form. Some popular fem seeds are:

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.

As interest in CBD as a medicine has grown, many breeders have crossed high-CBD hemp with cannabis. These strains have little or no THC, 1:1 ratios of THC and CBD, or some have a high-THC content along with significant amounts of CBD (3% or more).

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.

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

There are several methods of germinating marijuana seeds. The most popular include the use of cotton wool (cotton buds) or rockwool. Like any other seed, marijuana seeds require water to germinate. Growers will usually pre-soak the seeds in cotton wool or in a damp environment, often in the dark, making sure they keep the seeds moist but not totally wet inside the cotton wool or rockwool. The seeds will usually take a few days or a week to begin to germinate. Growers then carefully transplant the seed after the tip of the root becomes visible. Carefully the seed and root is then put in soil or a hydroponic marijuana medium such as pearlite or rockwool to continue growing.

Below are some examples of marijuana seeds germinating or small seedlings that have just germinated. Growers will often then use a weak light like a fluoro to continue the process until the plant is ready for a more powerful light such as a metal halide.
