How to Choose the Best Cannabis Seeds

Cannabis marajuana seeds are tiny sprouts that grow into mature plants, producing buds and flowers. They are rich in nutrients, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (that help reduce inflammation in the body), fiber, vitamins A, C and E, minerals, trace elements, antioxidants, and immune-supporting secondary plant substances.

Whether you are growing your own marijuana for recreational or medical use, or you’re cultivating it for sale, the quality of your seed and its ability to grow into full, bud-producing plants is crucial to your success. To choose the right seeds, consider the following:

Where and How Will You Cultivate?

The first step in selecting seeds is to decide where and how you’ll cultivate your cannabis. Consider factors such as the type of environment and amount of space you have available, and your level of experience with growing.

Regular seeds, the kind you can find in dispensaries or at seed banks, germinate into both male and female plants. Unless they are labeled “feminized,” it’s a good idea to destroy all male plants as soon as you see them, or risk pollinating your female crop and creating poor quality buds.

Buying cannabis seeds from another state or country isn’t a problem, as long as the seeds are kept in an airtight and sealed container. However, it’s a violation of federal law to bring the seeds back into your home state or country. Customs agents can seize them, and you could face criminal charges.
