However, a greenish colour is a clear sign of immaturity, which means that the seed hasn’t developed fully or it hasn’t received all the necessary resources to reach full maturity. In this particular case, if you purchase seeds with this colour you need to contact your supplier immediately and try to have them replaced.
If, on the contrary, the seeds seem too big, this may be caused by a lack of macronutrients during the plant’s growth cycle. As any grower with certain experience will know, calcium deficiencies are corrected by adding calcium and magnesium, a combination that helps reestablish the perfect nutritional balance of plants.
This article has been conceived to answer all the key questions that we often get asked by clients and growers regarding the physical characteristics of our main product: premium-quality cannabis seeds.
Our 15 years in the business have provided us with a great command as well as a wide perspective of this subject, so it is an honour for us to be able to share our knowledge with all of you in the cannabis community.
As most of the cannabis varieties that are currently on the market are polyhybrids, the size of the seeds can vary depending on their genetic line.
Some customers, for instance, contact us to tell us that they have bought Critical + seeds and they believe they look too small. But this is a normal feature of this strain: we’ve seen millions of Critical + seeds and we can confirm that they are naturally smaller than others. It is therefore incorrect to think that this is a sign of poor quality.
So we can openly say that this difference is simply visual. If we take the example of a Moby Dick seed, its dimensions will most likely be bigger than those of Critical +, although you can also find slight variations between seeds from the same strain. Don’t forget that, as with all living beings, cannabis seeds are also biologically different amongst themselves.
Hemp seeds were used by young women to conjure visions of their future husbands. Going out on Midsummer’s Eve (or other significant date, depending on the location), the woman would scatter hempseed on the ground whilst reciting a rhyme that begins “Hempseed I sow, hempseed grow…” nine times. Once this was done, she would look back over her left shoulder and hopefully see her future husband holding a scythe (giving scythes another traditional connection to hemp – see below!). This practice was popular in the 19 th century CE.
The Scythians were the ancient race who gave their name to the scythe, thanks to their use of these curve-bladed tools to harvest their crops – including hemp. By 450 BCE, some of their religious rites incorporated hemp seeds, which they threw onto smouldering fires inside small tents where they sat inhaling and bathing in the fumes.
Cannabis seeds may all look pretty much the same, but within those brown, speckled hulls, the potential for infinite variety is captured. From industrial hemp to carefully refined sativas, from the latest autoflowering strains to the oldest cannabis seeds yet found, it all starts from a seed! Here we present ten interesting facts about cannabis seeds for you to enjoy and share.
8. Hemp seeds can be magical!
Hemp seeds are a common ingredient in bird food, and there is an urban legend of accidental crops caused by someone – usually a grandmother – emptying the bird food bowl at the bottom of the garden and then being arrested six months later for the flourishing plants they were unwittingly growing. In 2014, something like this actually happened, although the story had already been circulating for years.
In many countries, the possession of cannabis seeds is legal (usually because they do not contain any THC) whereas germinating them is harshly punished. Many people are forced to buy and preserve their seeds as collector’s items, in the hope that legislation in their area will soon change to a more enlightened approach to home cannabis cultivation.
There is no visible difference between regular cannabis seeds, feminized cannabis seeds, autoflowering cannabis seeds, and seeds for growing industrial hemp plants. For this reason, always buy your cannabis seeds from a reputable seed bank (such as Sensi Seeds and White Label Seed Company) so that you definitely know what you’re getting.
Cannabis seeds are usually around the size of a match-head. They can vary by variety from not much larger than a tomato seed to almost as big as a small pea. The size of the seed is no indication of the size (or vitality) of the cannabis plant that will grow from it.
