Note: this test isn’t 100% accurate and only provides an indication of the viability. In addition, the water will activate the germination process. Therefore, only carry out this test if you want to germinate the seed immediately. After performing the float test, you can’t longer store the seed.

A well ripened cannabis seed had sufficient time for hardening its shell. Healthy cannabis seeds are therefore provided with a hard smooth skin without cracks. You can test the hardness of the shell by taking the seed between your fingers and applying gentle pressure. Immature seeds will easily crack or crumble while qualitative cannabis seeds won’t damage.

Float test

Cannabis seeds have a unique shape. They are oval, have the shape of a drop and are small in size. On average, a cannabis seed is about 2 to 5 mm long and 2 to 3 mm thick. If you want to know what you can expect in advance, then we can advise you to take a look at the seeds of a tomato.

To test the viability of a seed you can place the seed in a glass with distilled water. Seeds that sink within 2 hours have sufficient mass. These seeds generally have a better chance of sprouting than seeds that still float.

Note: the moisture from your fingers can damage the seed. Please use linen gloves to prevent this.

Although it isn’t always visible with the blind eye, on a quality cannabis seed you can see a pattern of “tiger stripes” or dark spots.

This stunning strain produces dark purple flowers coated in trichomes and dotted with dark orange pistils. She inherited her stunning good looks from legendary parent strains Wedding Cake, Gelato, and Gelato 33. Speedy and indica-dominant, Wedding Gelato produces 450–550g/m² after a brief flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Her powerful lineup of parents also passed down enormous THC levels of 25% and one of the sweetest terpene profiles on the planet. Brace yourself for a body-slamming high that diffuses tension and elevates the mind into euphoria for several hours at a time.

Green Crack Punch

Purple Queen is a sight to behold. This royal specimen dominates the landscape in grow rooms and gardens. Her eye-catching colas feature a bright green core and expand out into shades of deep purple. Her fan leaves—radiating bright pink—are equally as alluring. This unique colour is thanks to flavonoids known as anthocyanins, which produce a spectrum of pigments from red to black. Purple Queen is an indica-dominant specimen, the progeny of Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani. She’s ultimately a strain for the evenings, when her sedating effects can fully take hold. Her multicoloured flowers produce a THC content of 22% and a terpene profile defined by notes of citrus.

These specimens follow the cues of the seasons outdoors, flowering toward the end of summer. Indoors, cultivators have complete control over the length of the vegetative phase. Let them veg as long as you please, and flip them to flowering by reducing light to 12 hours per day.
