Beginner Cannabis Seeds
If you’ve found yourself here, you’ve probably considered growing your own marijuana. Perhaps you’re used to buying your cannabis from a dispensary, but you want to start saving money by growing it yourself. Or, you’ve heard that growing your own can result in a higher quality product, where you control every variable. Maybe you’re just looking for a new hobby. Whatever your reason for being interested in growing marijuana, we’re here to help you get started.
Why grow your own cannabis seeds?
There are many reasons for choosing to grow your own cannabis. If you use marijuana regularly, whether medicinally or recreationally, you have probably been thinking about growing your own for a while now.
When you purchase marijuana at a dispensary, you have to trust that the growers carefully managed all of the many variables that can keep a marijuana plant healthy. When you grow your own, you can control everything yourself, so you can carefully adjust the variables to get the best possible yield. Growing your own also allows you to save a lot of money, especially since you may be able to grow future crops from the seeds developed in current ones. Plus, of course, there is the simple sense of satisfaction that comes from growing something from seed all the way to maturity.
Cannabis seeds for beginners
The first step in growing your own marijuana is picking the right seeds. We’ve curated a special selection of seeds that are resistant to common mistakes, and are perfect for beginners growing their own crop.
You’ll want to take your environment into account when choosing a type of cannabis to grow. The plant has grown all over the planet, which means that many varieties have evolved which are suited to different kinds of climates. There are breeds from the Himalayas, which are used to drastic temperature swings, and breeds from the equator that prefer a consistently warm and humid climate. If you will be growing outdoors, you must think about what the environment is like where you would like to grow your cannabis seeds before you purchase them.
We’ve chosen varieties that are stable and resilient, with a short flowering time and the ability to produce massive harvests. They are also resistant to mold.
We recommend these strains to beginners, but you won’t be sacrificing taste or yield. You will have a much easier time with the growth period, though.
In fact, many of the cannabis seeds that we recommend for beginners are often chosen by experienced growers for their ease of use, especially when they are trying out a new cultivation method or growing space. Since these seeds can easily adapt to problems or challenges in their environment, they are perfect for anyone who is trying something new.
What to look for in your seeds
When you are buying your first batch of cannabis seeds, there are a couple of things to keep an eye out for. Those include the strength of the plant – you don’t want something that is weak and has to be handled too gently. You’ll make plenty of mistakes, so don’t go for a strain that is picky about pH levels or light schedules.
You’ll probably also want to use feminized seeds. These seeds make it much easier to grow successful plants since you won’t need to worry about identifying and removing make flowers (which can prevent the females from flowering). You’ll also want to choose a strain that boasts a short flowering time. Otherwise, you’ll need to be very patient, and the uncertainty of knowing whether or not you can succeed will already make it feel like the process is taking forever.
Growing the cannabis seeds for beginners
If you’re new to growing your own marijuana, you might feel overwhelmed by how much there is to learn. No fear! We have decades of experience and are here to guide you along your path. We’ll help you figure out the right amount of moisture in the soil, humidity in the air, room temperature, and light cycles for all the different stages of your plant’s life cycle.
Since you’re a beginner, it’s likely that you’ll make a few beginner’s mistakes. That’s okay, we’ve all made them! However, those can have serious consequences and even ruin your entire crop. All of our experience has helped us learn what mistakes are most common so we can help you avoid them. Buying your seeds is just the beginning of the process.
Now that you know how to find the best cannabis seeds for beginners, it’s time to get going. Make sure you have a growing space set up, where the roots will have plenty of space to expand, and the plants will be able to be at a comfortable temperature (around 80 degrees Fahrenheit) and get plenty of light. Take note of how tall your preferred strain is likely to grow, and make sure the plants have plenty of room to flourish. You may also want to check on the growing laws in your area – as they vary widely in different areas. Many places allow home growing of a few marijuana plants.
Now that you have your growing space set up, you are ready to order your seeds. Take a close look at our growing guides, and make sure to peruse the forums to make sure all of your questions are answered before you get started. Once your seeds arrive, you’re ready to start germinating them.
After the plants have matured, when it’s time to harvest the buds, you’ll want to dry them properly so that you can prepare the plant for your favorite method of consumption. Whether you prefer smoking, vaping, or cooking the cannabis into edibles, you can do it easily with the cannabis that you have grown at home. From seedling to finished product, you’re in control of your marijuana every single step of the way. In no time at all, you’ll have grown your first successful crop of marijuana, and you’ll be hooked on growing your own from now on.
