Cannabis Seeds Ontario
Tips for Growing Marijuana
Growing Marijuana is not like growing other seeds and herbs. An avid gardener is going to see great results over time, but the initial learning phase can include some failure. Germination is more difficult with cannabis seeds and they are much more finicky than your average garden vegetable. 420 seeds need warmth, moisture and darkness to germinate! Check out our germination guide for more information.
Once your cannabis seeds germinate, you need to move them into your grow medium of choice. Getting the right nutrient blend and composition can be challenging. Each marijuana strain has slightly different requirements and optimal settings, so its normal to use trial and error to weed out the methods that produce the best results.
When choosing a weed seed to grow in Ontario, please consider the climate if you are growing outdoors. You will want faster strains that are going to produce flowers within the grow season and before the frost comes.
Autoflowering seeds are great for beginner growers in Eastern Canada. These produce flowers within about 10-12 weeks and are more forgiving over the long-run because you can flip so many more cycles per year to learn from!
Choose High Quality Cannabis Seeds in Ontario
When choosing the right strain of cannabis for yourself, there are many different things to consider.
1) Are you planning to use for more MEDICAL or RECREATIONAL purposes? While most strains have benefits in both realms, there are some general characteristics that can make one a better choice over another. Certain Sativa’s can make you feel uplifted and creative, good for artists seeking creativity or people with depression or chronic fatigue. Indica has more of a downward, or calming effect, which is a good fit for someone who suffers from anxiety or physical body pain or tension.
2) If you are growing from seed, what are the plants growing conditions going to be? Do your research and find out what temperature climate is best if you are growing outdoors, or if the strain does well with humidity and pest-resistance, as this will help for hassle-free indoor grows. Indica are generally shorter and more broad, while Sativa tend to shoot up tall and have a more lanky appearance. Keep this in mind for how much garden space you allot (outdoor) or how high you hang your lights (indoor).
3) What is your tolerance to THC like? (I.e. how long have you been smoking? What effect are you going for?). Some plants, regardless of nutrients added or fancy hydroponic equipment, will just have a NATURALLY higher THC level (I.e. White Widow, Bruce Banner, Gorilla Glue, just to name a few). Choose strains with a mild THC level if you simply want a light buzz to take the edge off, rather than a potent heavy smoke that will get you more “stoned”.
4) Use your spidey-senses! The effects of each strain are only loosely associated with the different flavors (terpenes) that are contained within, so you can’t JUST follow your nose. Sometimes you will catch a whiff of something that is familiar or reminiscent of a particular place or time. Maybe it’s the “Lemon” genes that you just can’t get enough of, or the pungent thick and full-flavor that you get from a classic Kush. Smell and taste are closely linked. And you obviously want to enjoy your medicine as it goes down.
Have a visual look over the buds for obvious signs of pests or damage (I.e. mold, mildew, spider mites, or gnats). Typically, more visible “crystal” on the buds or leaves means the THC level will be higher for the particular plant. Some buds have clearly colored hairs (red, blues, yellows, purples, orange) that are very typical of the strain and those may give you an indication of what you will like and dislike. The size of a large cone-bud may appear more enticing than small dark popcorn-nugs, but remember that size isn’t always related to potency!
When it comes to touch, Sativa buds will typically be lighter and airier while Indica tend to grow tighter and more compact. Pinch a dried bud between two fingers and this will give you some hints as to how well it was cured (you want something not dry and crumbly and not to sticky and moist, but somewhere in the middle, “just right”!)
