- Use distilled water to dampen 4 pieces of paper towel (it should be wet but not dripping). Tip- use a spray bottle!
- Lay 2 of the pieces of paper towel flat in your seeds case (recommended), sealable plastic bag or paper plate. Place seeds on the paper towel at least 2 inches apart. Cover gently with remaining paper towel. If using the bag/paper plate method, cover it well, you want a good seal.
- Place in a warm, dark area (21-30C) like the top shelf of a cupboard. Keep away from strong lights & the cold.
- Check your seeds every 12 hours, ensuring the paper towel stays moist. Re-dampen as needed.
- Germination can take 2-3 days or even up to a week for some seeds (natural variability). You will see the seed split and a taproot appear.
- Once the taproot is about 1/4-1/2inches long, time to transplant the sprouted seeds. Ideal soil types include pro-mix, peat moss or coco coir growing media
- Using a 2” pot, fill to the top with soil and poke a hole in the middle, about a quarter inch down
- The taproot is very delicate. With clean hands, GENTLY grab the shell and drop in the hole with the taproot facing down. Lightly cover it with soil.
- Use a spray bottle with distilled water to mist the surface of the soil. Be sure not to over-saturate as it can suffocate the sprout
- Double check that no parts are exposed to the surface. If they are, cover with additional wet soil
- Place the pots in a well-lit area. You should start to see a seedling emerge after 2-5 days
- Plants will need to be transplanted to a larger pot once it reaches 4 inches in height
Storing seeds should be somewhere cool and dry at a minimum, or in the refrigerator away from high humidity and light.
Make sure to be patient, some seeds take a little longer. Check your seed carefully for any tiny crackers as it may just be a slow sprouter. Some suggest diluted vinegar, etc. to force it open- we suggest caution as it could damage the seed. Only use this as a last resort, it may render your seeds unviable.

Cannabis has male, female & hermaphrodite plants. Male plants will produce pollen and no smokable material, while female plants will produce the flower buds we all love to enjoy! Hermaphrodites are genetic or female plants that experienced extreme stress.
CBD is listed in mg/g. This is the percentage of CBD found per gram of cannabis biomass. To convert mg/g to percentage, divide mg by 10. For example: 200mg/1g is 20%.
Genetics can vary widely, even within the same cultivar. Height, THC, CBD, cannabinoids, health, climate preference, growth cycles, etc. Sativa leaning cultivars can be tall, thin & take a longer time to mature while Indica leaning cultivars can be shorter, wider & grow more quickly, Ruderalis is a third type (less common as it doesn’t produce any psychoactive effects but it’s quick growth cycle & auto flower capability make it a popular cross) that grows quickly but is very small. Note that these are just a general guideline- nearly if not all modern cultivars are hybrids, so they are highly variable. Do your research to determine the best cultivar for you!
This will indicate roughly how much yield you can expect in optimal conditions. This is only a guideline and can vary greatly between grows- plant type, grow method, trim method, etc. are all factors to consider.
THC is listed in mg/g. This will be the percentage of THC found per gram of cannabis biomass. If the number is higher, the concentration and effects will be higher.
To convert mg/g to percentage, divide mg by 10. For example: 200mg/1g is 20%.
Terpenes are organic hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of a plant, they make up the smell and flavours! Terpenes can be found in many items such as apples, black pepper and pine needles. For example, limonene is found in lemons as well as cannabis.
When choosing a cultivar, pay close attention to yield, growth height compared to your grow space, level of scent & purpose. Look for a reputable seeds provider who can guide you regarding the type of seeds suited for your grow space & experience.

As the plant grows, the light requirements change. At first, follow a minimum 18 hours light/6 hours dark schedule- she needs light to grow from a seedling to a full plant. This is vegetative stage. Once she is ready to flower, reduce the light to about 12 hours light/12 hours dark. This will send a signal to the plant to start flowering. Note that this is a general guideline and depending on the type of grow method & plant’s needs, you may need to tweak it.
Do not use Miracle-Gro or any type of ‘extended’ release nutrient soils. Your plant’s nutrient needs change as it grows & as it moves from vegetative to flowering, especially in the case of nitrogen. These soils often lead to nutrient problems. A standard potting soil with amendments is fine or use a soil specifically for cannabis. If you are using garden soil, sterilize it first. Place the soil in a glass or metal pan, flatten for a even layer. Heat in oven for 30minutes at 80-95C (180-200F) then let cool before adding other components like peat moss & perlite.
