How To Buy Cannabis Seeds Online
Sativa and Indica
It’s sometimes hard to decide which strain of marijuana to choose for your growing adventure. Too many choices can easily confuse you and prevent you from choosing the strain best for your growing conditions. But maybe it will not be so complicated after you read this article.
There are two main strains of marijuana, Sativas and Indicas.
Sativa cannabis plants differ from the Indica strain. It grows much higher and develops plenty of pale green (they have less chlorophyll) long leaves. Sativa marijuana is famous because of its explosive growth. It can grow up to 20 – 25 feet in favorable conditions during one season only.
This strain comes from Asia (Thailand, Vietnam) and South America (Mexico, Columbia). The Sativa will take longer to mature than the Indica strains (10-15 weeks). Its buds have a nice sweet apple-like smell. When you smoke Sativas, you will get energized and highly stimulated.
Indica cannabis originated in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. The plant is shorter (usually 6-7 feet high)with darker green leaves. The leaves are darker because of higher levels of chlorophyll which means they will mature earlier. It will usually mature in 6 – 8 weeks. The buds will be thicker and denser and vary in color from green to purple. The aroma of Indica marijuana will also often vary from smelly to pleasant and sweet.
You will get a hybrid when you combine different stains of Sativa, different stains of Indica, or even a combination of Indica and Sativa. The hybrid you get will differ in growth, smoke, and high and contain more or fewer characteristics of one or another strain, depending on how much Indica or Sativa genetics it contains.
Indoor or Outdoor Growing
You have to choose between indoor and outdoor growing according to your climate. For every strain of cannabis seed, there is an appropriate chart showing its flowering time. If you decide to plant your marijuana seeds outdoors, you will want a shorter maturation time to avoid bad weather. If a shorter growing season is an issue, the more Indica your cannabis seeds contain, the faster they mature.
If you choose to grow cannabis seeds indoors, you can control their height. When the marijuana is tall enough, you can trigger flowering, stopping its growth. The indoor lighting penetrates up to 3 feet into your indoor garden, which is all the height you need. After your marijuana plant is high enough, you can change the light to emulate 12 hours-long days followed by 12 hours of darkness.
After some 8 – 1 4 days, the flowering will begin. During this time, your plant will grow only 6 – 12 inches more, and then it will stop. Because of this, it is advisable to start the flowering when the plant reaches 20 – 25 inches of height. The time every marijuana plant matures will depend mostly on the growing conditions and the strain of your marijuana seeds.
All marijuana strains are more or less potent, but the results you will get depend on your choice of cannabis seeds and the conditions you have in your garden. It is complicated to test whole levels of the THC (which is the substance responsible for the high) in any strain.
Marijuana synthesizes THC in the resin glands, which will develop during the plant’s maturation. These glands help protect the seed from the intense heat, so it is a good idea to lower the humidity as much as possible to stimulate the marijuana plants to produce more THC-containing resins. But no matter how much resin you get on Indica strains, it will not match the high you get from Sativa strains of cannabis. So please choose according to your taste and preferences.
The yields you will get are approximate, depending on growing conditions. Artificial lighting will not penetrate very deep, so it is better to grow a larger number of smaller plants to get higher yields of better quality. As a rule of thumb, the Indica strains and their hybrids will give you higher yields, and Sativa and Sativa hybrids will give you lower yields.
The yield of your indoor marijuana garden will depend mostly on the light provided. If you provide optimal growing conditions for your marijuana, the yields you get will be similar and depend on the ratio of Sativa and Indica in the plant. The growers must learn how to provide the best conditions and which particular strain will grow best in their conditions. It is a good idea to try different marijuana seeds and learn which suits you the best.
The time you need to grow a mature plant will show you how long it will take to flower. The growing conditions (mostly the quality and quantity of light) will affect plant development. Still, the growing time will depend mostly on which ratio of Indica/Sativa plant your cannabis seeds come from.
Indicas will always flower faster than Sativas. It is also important to know how much time your marijuana will need to grow to reach the flowering phase. If the grower waits too long, he risks the overgrowth of the plant, which will reduce his yield. The Indica, on the other hand, if induced to flower prematurely, will have significantly lower yields.
How To Get Cannabis Seeds
The first option is to find free seeds. But as always, free seems to be of low quality. You can find free seeds, but the results will usually be disappointing. It’s probably a better idea if you pool resources with your friends and buy some marijuana seeds from an online supplier and then share them.
In some countries, there is a possibility to obtain seeds for growing marijuana for medical purposes. Be careful and learn the legal aspects and requirements for this in your area.
There are quite a few seed-selling companies, but the best cannabis seed-selling companies are found in Amsterdam. We have tested all the companies thoroughly, and it seems that only the marijuana seed from Amsterdam is improving yearly. This is because those growers are developing new strains and testing their results often to serve the worldwide market for cannabis seeds.
