The purpose of this review is to lay out the details of the top seed banks online.
Q. How do Seed Banks Work in the USA?
Breeders talk about “unstable genetics,” meaning that a seed’s origin is unknown. Make sure that when you buy a packet of seeds that it or the breeder who produced them can list where the seeds came from and how they were crossed and/or backcrossed to get the seed that you hold in your hand. If you can’t get a seed’s history, it could be anything and the result of poor breeding practices.
It also reduces the risk of having a stray male sneak into your crop—just one male can pollinate a huge crop, causing your females to focus their energies on producing seeds instead of buds.
Which strain should I grow?
The first couple months of the year is a great time to start planning your cannabis garden to get a head start on the outdoor growing season, which roughly runs from March to November, depending on where you live.
When you grow any amount of seeds, a percentage of them won’t germinate, even if you get them from a reputable breeder. Always count on a few not germinating or dying off, or roughly 1/4 of the total you put in the ground.
If you grow some seeds and like the results, try growing another strain from that same breeder and see how it goes.
As we have said in the previous lines, buying cannabis seeds online is safe, as they do not contain THC and are therefore considered as seeds of common plants. Of course, what is not allowed is their cultivation, so be careful.
The cultivation of weed seeds is not allowed under the majority of European states’ laws, as it would lead to the production of inflorescences containing THC levels above the permitted threshold. All products with a percentage higher than 0.2% tetrahydrocannabinol are, in fact, illegal.
Feminized seeds are specially designed to give birth to a female plant (which therefore produces flowers) 99% of the time. These are cannabis seeds that give birth to a photoperiodic plant, i.e. that flowers during the time of year when the hours of darkness are more than the hours of light (in autumn).
