If you are growing your own weed, you need to know that great weed starts with great seeds! Read on for what you should look for when buying cannabis seeds.
Before you grow cannabis plant
There are hundreds of different cannabis strains out there, which means there are copious options when buying cannabis seeds too. Be sure to take the time to consider what cannabis strains you prefer. After all, it takes a lot of time to grow a cannabis plant from a seed and you want to have the most desirable outcome.
Cannabis Strain Sativa or Indica?
One of the first deciding factors is whether you want a Sativa, an Indica, or a blend. If done right, both Sativa and Indica plants will produce buds rich in cannabinoids (THC and CBD). So the choice is a personal preference, but there are other factors to consider too.
Grow Space for Cannabis Seed
It is important to note the space requirements when choosing a cannabis seed to grow. When choosing your seeds, there is often a given estimate of how much space is needed. Generally speaking, Sativa is known to grow taller than Indica so be aware of that. If you are growing indoors with limited space, you should really pay attention to this tip!
The growing period
Next, another factor to consider the time it takes for the seed to grow, and how long it has to be in flowering. In this growing period, there is also lighting to consider. In the early stages, most plants need a lot of light. As the plant matures, light times can be lessened and even scheduled for so many hours on, so many hours off. Also important to note that the kind of lighting changes during the different stages in the growing period.
How much cannabis does it yield?
Since you are going through this process because you want a lot of weed, it is good to have an estimate of how much weed it will yield. Just so you know, some plants produce way more than others!
Not everyone has a green thumb and that is okay. It doesn’t mean that you can’t grow your own weed! Just be sure to always read the reviews online to understand the difficulty level of growing a certain strain before you start. Some strains such as AK-47 are very sensitive and require special attention to humidity levels. If you are just starting out, try to find an easy strain to grow such as Blue Cheese or Northern Lights. In time, you will develop your growing skills.
