If you want to start the cultivation of cannabis on your own, you would probably want to achieve the best possible harvest with the best growth techniques. Originally, there are two growth methods to employ while growing cannabis, without the use of seed or with the use of seeds. If you choose the latter, it is quite important to get the best seeds to achieve the best quality in terms of your harvest. To do this, you should remember to use feminized seeds for your cultivation as they produce the buds you need. You need to also ensure to grow lots of female cannabis plants as they are responsible for the production of seeds after being pollinated by the male plants. Also, you must pay attention to the varieties and strains of the seeds to get your desired cannabis plant.

Choosing Your Best Seed

There are a few things to look out for or consider which could help you in choosing the best seed possible for your cannabis cultivation.

Color: The color of your cannabis seeds helps you determine if it is healthy or not. For those seeds that have dark colors such as black or brown or maybe a tanned pattern, you can rest assured that it is healthy and good enough. It is best to avoid light or green colored seeds as they are not really suitable for cannabis cultivation.

Pattern: This might seem weird but the patterns that can be found on your cannabis seeds can help you in identifying its strain. For those seeds with a striped pattern and are seemingly larger, you can tell that it is of the Indica strain. The seeds that are smaller and have a single color without any identifiable pattern on them are usually of the Sativa strain.

Hardness: If you check the texture of the cannabis seeds, you will find that some are usually harder than others. This is a good indicator of the quality of the seeds as those with hard shells are more suitable than those with softer shells, so if you want good quality plants you should go for those with hard shells.



Other Factors to Consider When Choosing a Seed

In addition to the above tips to choosing a good seed, there are also a few things that will help determine your choice of seeds, these include:

Type of High: The type of high or effect you want to feel while smoking your cannabis helps you pay attention to certain seeds more than others. Though many cannabis seeds on the market are mostly hybrids or crossbreed, it remains a fact that Indica strains help with relaxation of the body while Sativa strains give you that exhilarating mind high. As a result, even if the hybrid or crossbred seeds are either Indica or Sativa high, you know exactly what to choose based on your need.

Proficiency: Your proficiency with growing things is also a factor to consider when getting your seeds as some strains are very selective when it comes to growing conditions. What this means is that if you are not very proficient or the growing conditions are less than ideal, they might be unable to grow successfully. Besides, you should also consider the environmental conditions of your grow area to ensure that it will be conducive for the strain you have in mind.

Grow Space: The amount of grow space you have also affects your decision regarding the seeds you will choose because some plants can grow very tall to as much as 6 to 8 inches from seed. Thus, you should consider getting seeds that don’t grow too tall when the grow space available is small because this will hamper the growth of your plant if you get a seed that does not fit your grow space.

Climate: The climate of the grow area will also have some sort of impact on your seed decision as some strains thrive better in some climates than others. Also, seeds grown outdoors are more common, some are suitable for indoor growth while others thrive in both environments.

Flowering Period: The period required for the plants to grow and flower is also important when considering the seeds to get for your cannabis cultivation. Some seeds flower as early as 8 weeks while some take between 12 to 14 weeks or even more than that. As a grower, you’ll have a projected time frame or season in which you’ll wish to embark on the cultivation of your plants in preparation for harvest, so you should try getting strains that suit the timing you desire.
