How to Choose Marijuana Seeds

Where to Buy Best Marijuana Seeds

With over 450 seed varieties of cannabis on the market to choose from it can be a challenge to choose the right seeds. The fact is that out of the 450 varieties only 50 of them are truly outstanding. The strains will be either pure species, crossbred or hybrids. Seed producers usually stick to the following varieties of cannabis strains:
Weed Seeds

Marijuana Seed Varieties

  • Pure Sativa seeds
  • Sativa seeds (seeds of a strain that is mostly Sativa but will have some Indica mixed in
  • Pure Indica
  • Indica (marijuana seeds of a strain that is mostly Indica but will have some Sativa mixed in)
  • Indica/Sativa hybrid seeds (Marijuana seeds of a strain that is a 50% cross of both Indica and Sativa)
  • Ruderalis

Note on Sativa vs Indica Marijuana Effects

Pure Sativa marijuana strains will give you a complete “head high” while Sativa (with some Indica mixed in) will give a head high and body stone mixed in.  Pure Indica, on the other hand will give marijuana users a complete “body stone” while Indica (with some Sativa mixed in) will give a body stone with head high mixed in.

Ruderalisis a somewhat problematic plant which does not produce large quantities of THC and won’t flower like the other species therefore most growers consider it to be sub-standard.

Choosing the Right Seeds

When growing marijuana, choose your seeds based on the high that you would like to achieve and check to see whether the strain is pure or a ratio and what the ratio is. Apart from the high type you also need to consider the potency of the seeds in addition to the expected height of the plant. For instance if the strain will grow very tall there is no sense in growing it indoors whereas if the strain is shorter then you have to consider the competition that it will face with other plants for light when growing outdoors.  Also, for those that opt for outdoor growing, keep your climate in mind.  Growing marijuana in Colorado vs growing it in Washington can have more dramatic effects on the outcome of the crop than many might anticipate.

To get the best marijuana seeds you should ask someone who grows the type of weed that you enjoyed smoking. You can also search the internet for seed-banks with great reviews or visit your local marijuana dispensary.

Where to Buy Recreational Marijuana | Colorado Retail Dispensaries

Colorado Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries As of January 1st, 2014, the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone 21 and above is legal in Colorado.  Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, a handful of medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensaries now sell recreational pot to Colorado residents that don't have a MMJ license (AKA Red Card).

 Even though it's legal under state law to buy recreational marijuana in Colorado without a MMJ card, a number of cities have voted to ban the sale of recreational marijuana. Below is a list of Colorado cities that have bans on recreational marijuana dispensaries.

What's The Difference Between F1, F2, and F3 Weed Strain Seeds?

Just as with common flowers or other household plants (roses, pea plants, etc...), Cannabis seed strains can be grown and crossbred. This is usually done for the purpose of developing new breeds with different characteristics such as the size of the plant, yield, taste, effect, bud to leaf ratio, or other specific traits that the grower desires. As this cross breeding continues, the plants end up forming different weed strain seeds, or generations. These are often described as being either F1, F2, or F3. In order to really make some informed seed purchase decisions it is very helpful to understand the differences between these various seed strains.




F1 Seeds: The First Breeding: An F1 seed variety is created by breeding together two pure strains. For example, a tall plant (represented with two dominant genes, AA) is bred with a small plant (represented by the two small recessive genes, aa). Since the resulting plants will each receive one gene from each parent, this will result in offs…

Jack Herer Strain Review | Marijuana Strain Information

Jack Herer Strain is a sativa dominant hybrid Haze crossed with Red Skunk Strain.  The buds of Jack Herer marijuana are a distinct, light green tone.  The smell is one of a citrus haze coupled with a slight scent of the classic fresh cannabis skunk scent.  The buds themselves are fairly dense, thick nugs, that can easily be broken up with ones hands.  Not only did Jack Herer's dedication to promote pro-marijuana legislation earn him his own signature marijuana strain, but in 2003 he was inducted into the Counter Culture Hall of Fame at the 16th Annual High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.

The Jack Herer marijuana strain is a unique cross.  It's not difficult to tell that Jack Herer is a Sativa dominant marijuana strain.  However, d…
