Whether you’re looking to grow marijuana for a business adventure or you’re just looking to get yourself involved in a fun new hobby, growing marijuana is an incredibly rewarding experience. However, if you aren’t sure how to grow cannabis, shopping around for the best cannabis seeds online can be overwhelming and stressful.
After all, how do you know you’re buying the best seeds from a trusted retailer if you aren’t sure what healthy marijuana seeds are even supposed to look like? By the time you’re done reading this guide, you’ll have a solid understanding of not only how to buy the best cannabis seeds online, but how to get started growing them!
Yes, it’s legal to buy marijuana seeds in Alberta! Legalized on October 17th, 2018 Canada made cannabis oil and dried cannabis legal across the country. Canada also made it legal for adults to purchase marijuana clones and seeds, allowing adults to grow up to four plants in their home or on their property.
If you’ve been contemplating growing your own marijuana plants but have always held back because you’re weren’t sure of the legality, you can legally grow your own marijuana plants in Alberta!
If you’ve found seeds on an online store that say ‘unstable genetics’, don’t purchase that seed. This term basically means that the origin of the sed isn’t known.
When shopping around for marijuana seeds online, make sure that you’re purchasing seeds from a breeder that can show you a list that tells you where the seeds came from, as well as how they backcrossed or crossed the produce the seed that you’re interested in purchasing.
If you’re considering purchasing from a breeder that doesn’t know the history of your seed, you could end up buying a seed that was produced from poor breeding practices, resulting in a less-than-worthy yield.
There are three different genders that a marijuana plant can grow into hermaphrodites, female, or male. The reproductive organs are found on separate marijuana plants, which makes a diecious plant.
The seeds for a marijuana plant are produced after a male marijuana plant pollinates a female marijuana plant. The bud that cannabis consumes use to smoke, make into oil, or terpenes come from an unpollinated female marijuana plant. In order to yield any harvest from a female plant, it’s important that you completely remove all marijuana plants from your garden, so that the female plants don’t become pollinated.
The first signs of the sex of your marijuana plants will begin to appear during the pre-flowering stage, which usually happens at around six weeks of growth.
During this stage, you’ll be able to tell if a marijuana plant is female because it’ll have a small bud form on the core, in between the main stock and the fledgling branch. The small buds that you’ve identified during the pre-flowering stage will eventually grow into adult flowers.
Female marijuana plants can also be identified by the white pistil hairs that are growing where the buds will eventually form. Only female marijuana plants will grow white hairs from the bud you’re located. Over time, these pistil hairs will turn into a red or orange color as the flowers on the plant begin to mature.
You can identify male marijuana plants by the pollen sacs that they grow. In between the stock and the fledging branch, a male marijuana plant with grow a bulb that has a shape of a tulip. This sac won’t have any pistil hairs growing from it.
Identifying the sexes of your marijuana plants is essential if you’re looking to yield a harvest. After you’ve identified a male marijuana plant, it’s important that you remove it immediately from your growing area. If a plant marijuana plant is left in with female marijuana plants for too long, the pollen sac on the male marijuana plant will burst and pollinate all of the female plants in the surrounding area.
As an end result, this will cause all of the female plants to produce seeds instead of flowers. The only purpose that male marijuana plants serve is to breed with female marijuana plants. Unless you’ve found another use for your male plants, it’s encouraged to discard of the male plants to avoid any chances of your female plants becoming pollinated.
Not sure if you should spend the money on buying seeds, especially if you’re worried that you don’t have enough experience to grow marijuana plants? Growing marijuana from seed is much easier than most beginners believe, it’ll provide you with the yield that you’re looking to reap from your plants.
A clone is the section of marijuana plants that’s been cut off from a parent plant. Although this section of the plant has been severed, it’ll grow roots and stabilize if you plant it.
Yet, growing marijuana from a seed offers a lot more benefits than growing from a clone does. Some of these benefits include:
There’s a larger variety of seeds to choose from, which will provide you with more choices and control of the final product that you’re looking to harvest.
As seeds grow, they develop a tap root. This tap root secures the plant into the soil, not only making it strong, but making it easier for the plant to suck up nutrients and water from the soil. Clones don’t grow a tap root, meaning the plant will grow up less healthy and weaker than a plant grown from a seed would.
Marijuana plants that are grown from a seed produce more yield, as they don’t experience as much stress growing up (thanks to the tap root they grow).
Seeds are a great way for beginners to start off with, since you can easily and discreetly purchase cannabis seeds online.
If you’ve spent some time shopping around for marijuana seeds online, chances are you’ve run into terms such as ‘regular seeds’, ‘auto-flowering seeds’, and ‘feminized seeds’. Here’s what you need to know about the different types of marijuana seeds:
Auto-flowering cannabis seeds begin their flowering cycle once they’ve reached a certain age. Unlike other types of marijuana plants that depend on their light source to start their flowering cycle, auto-flowering seeds don’t require a specific light schedule to start developing flowers.
This type of marijuana seed is available in both feminized and regular forms. Auto-flowering seeds tend to flower faster than regular and feminized cannabis seeds, which will provide you with the opportunity to harvest more yields throughout the year.
If you’re not looking to devote a lot of time to grow your marijuana plants, this type of seed doesn’t require a lot of attention, which makes it a perfect choice for beginning cannabis growers.
Regular cannabis seeds include a mixture of both female and male marijuana plants. While there’s no exact way to tell the gender of a marijuana plant from the seed, you’ll have to take the time, energy, and effort into growing your plants to be able to identify the gender of the plants.
This can be intimidating for beginners, as you’ll have to identify the sex of your plant during the pre-flowering stage if you’re looking to yield bud from your female plants.
This type of marijuana seed has been modified through a method called Roelization to only produce female marijuana plants. If you’re not interested in devoting a lot of time to grow your cannabis seeds, feminized seeds take the time that you would need to spend identifying any male marijuana plants out of your growing experience.
Feminized cannabis seeds only produce buds, so if that’s the only thing you’re looking to achieve with your marijuana plants, this is the best seed for you!
Now that it’s legal to buy the best cannabis seeds online and grow your own plants, you can finally get started harvesting marijuana for whatever your needs are. Whether you’re looking to get started growing marijuana as a personal hobby or you’re looking to self-medicate with cannabis, make sure that you purchase your seeds from a trusted online vendor.
