Marijuana growing can be an exciting process. Like all exciting processes, marijuana growing starts with something small: a seed. Any process worth completing starts small from a relationship to a forest. Good things, complex things start from somewhere simple.
So, if you’re in the business of marijuana growing, you will need to learn something about choosing and collecting the best cannabis seeds. This learning process is an exciting one and cannabis seeds are on the cutting edge of genetic engineering, being one of the most often and most thoroughly genetically engineered seeds around. For those opposed to all genetic engineering, let me say that the engineering that cannabis seeds undergo only serves to make better stronger plants which produce a higher quality marijuana product. The fact that they’re engineered, though, means that the variety of marijuana seeds in existence is mind boggling. Still, this process of searching and finding can be interesting and even thrilling. You are in search of the perfect cannabis seed. Looking among the myriad strains, each possessing different attributes which come together in different combinations to produce different effects. Your choice will be the one that brings together the combination due to create the effect you’re looking for.
When you look for seeds, consider the following ideas.
1. THC, which stands for “tetrahydrocannabinol.” THC is the component of marijuana that causes the high that the marijuana user experiences. Seed labels will list the THC makeup or percentage contained within. To be perfectly accurate though no seeds contains actual THC in its seeds state. Each seed, however, has the potential to create plants containing the listed percentage of THC. You will want to choose seeds that will yield plants with a wide variety of THC percentages as you will want your customers–pot dispensaries–to have a wide range to choose from. These pot dispensaries will turn right around and sell the marijuana to their customers, and of course, some of their customers will prefer a smaller high and some will prefer a larger, more intense high.
2. Yield. Yield is the measure of how many plants each seed will yield and also how large these plants will be. To make it easier, I’ll tell you that yield is measured in grams, and the reported yield is the result of the reporting of marijuana growers who have worked with that particular seed. If you know that your priority is growing a large amount of cannabis, look for seeds with higher yield.
3. Strain. As I mentioned previously, scientists have created a wide variety of marijuana strains. You might cut to the chase by looking for seeds whose plants have won awards for quality; one example is the High Times Cannabis Cup where each year, seed banks are judged and the best cannabis seed is selected.
4. Delivery. Finally, you want to look at how and with what conditions the seed is and can be delivered. An ideal situation is free delivery just as an ideal delivery oozes discretion.
