What type of marijuana seeds should I buy?
There are thousands of different cannabis varieties out there and most seed banks categorise their stock by sex or genetic variety.
Feminised seeds produce only female plants, if you want to grow smokable bud then you want to grow female plants. They are produced by breeding a female plant with another female plant which cuts out the Y chromosomes meaning the offspring will only produce females.
Regular seeds are as nature intended and can produce both male and female cannabis plants with roughly a 50:50 ratio. If you are looking to breed and produce your own cannabis seeds, then you will need to grow with regular seeds. Regular seeds can also be used to grow cannabis flowers however it is important to cull any male plants to prevent pollination of your female plants.
Sativas are a species of cannabis plant that is native to subtropical regions that have much warmer climates such as Central and South America, Africa and Southeast Asia. The plants grow tall and have long stems with elongated colas. They typically have longer flowering cycles that take between 10-14 weeks and are naturally adapted to growing on hot humid environments which means they are much less pest and mold resistant. Sativas can grow up to 20 feet tall so they aren’t always the best plants to grow, particularly if you are guerrilla growing.
Indica Plants are native to less humid regions such as Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Morroco. They tend to grow short and squat like a bush and with a much denser foliage and fatter leaves. Traditionally Indicas have been used to make hash and Indicas tend to produce much more resin than Sativas. Indicas have a faster flowering cycle but require a lower humidity to avoid issues such as mold developing.
Autoflowering seeds as their name would suggest flower automatically without any change in their light cycle. These strains have been produced by introducing the Ruderalis genetics into the plants gene pool. Ruderalis cannabis plants are native to colder climates that have shorter days such as Siberia, Russia and Northern Asia. They have naturally adapted to survive in colder environments with less daylight by flowering automatically. Because of this autoflowering strains have shorter flowering cycles and the plants are much shorter.
The best ways to pay for cannabis seeds
