We want to ensure that everyone who buys our product has the education and support they need to effectively use our seeds and grow their own quality product.

This page will provide recreational growers and industry players with important information regarding our offerings and the how to ensure you get the best results possible from our product.

  • 1. What is the preferred way to germinate seeds?

    1. Take 4 pieces of paper towel and soak them in distilled water so they are heavily damp, but not dripping. A spray bottle works best to saturate
    2. Take 2 pieces of paper towel and lay them flat in your seeds case or a Ziploc bag. Place the seeds on the wet towel, spacing them out at least 2 inches apart. Put the other 2 pieces of paper towel on top of them and seal your case or the Ziploc bag
    3. Place the bag in a warm, dark area such as the top shelf of a kitchen cupboard. The area should be between 21-30oC
    4. Check the seeds every 12 hours to make sure the paper towel stays moist. Apply a bit more water if the paper towel starts to dry
    5. It may take a 2-3 days or longer for the seeds to germinate. The seeds have germinated once it splits and a taproot appears. If you don’t see a taproot after 3 days, leave for an additional 3-4 days checking every 12 hours as some seeds may take longer to germinate
    6. Once the taproot is about 1/4”-1/2” long, it is time to transplant the sprouted seeds. Ideal soil types include pro-mix, peat moss or coco coir growing media
    7. Using a 2” pot, fill to the top with soil and poke a hole in the middle, about a quarter inch down
    8. 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.
    9. 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
    10. Double check that no parts are exposed to the surface. If they are, cover with additional wet soil
    11. Place the pots in a well-lit area. You should start to see a seedling emerge after 2-5 days
    12. Plants will need to be transplanted to a larger pot once it reaches 4 inches in height

  • 2.What is the best way to store the seeds?

    Storing seeds should be somewhere cool and dry at a minimum, or in the refrigerator away from high humidity and light.

  • 3. Are they feminized and how?

    All our seeds are processed to be feminized, we use an Organic Rodelization technique that has been developed through years of testing and R&D. We perform many tests and have been able to achieve results as high as 99% feminized seeds. We have not shown any hermaphroditic traits in our genetics, and stand behind our products.

  • 4. My seeds haven’t germinated, help!

    Please visit our learning portal, or contact us (info@anccannabis.com) if you are experiencing any issues with your seeds! We’d love to help.

  • 5. What does the gender of a plant mean?

    Male plants will produce pollen and no smokable material, while female plants will produce the flower buds we all love to enjoy!

  • 6. How is CBD listed?

    CBD is listed in mg/g. This will be 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%.

  • 7. What are the different genetics of cannabis?

    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.

  • 8. What do the gr/m2 harvest numbers mean?

    This will indicate roughly how much yield you can expect in optimal conditions. This is only a guideline and can vary greatly between grows. There are many factors that can influence yields, but the plants are capable of this number given the right conditions and grow environment.

  • 9. How is THC rated or listed?

    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%.

  • 10. What are terpenes?

    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. Example: Limonene, lemons as well as cannabis.

  • 11. I want to grow a few plants in my home for recreational use, what should I be looking for?

    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.

  • 12. Where can I purchase 34th Street products?

    Currently you can purchase our products in Ontario, B.C., Alberta, New Brunswick, and Saskatchewan. Please visit the online source or check with local retailers to purchase or request our products!

  • 13. How much light does my plant need?

    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. (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 s a general guideline and depending on the type of grow method & plant’s needs, you may need to tweak it.
