buy hemp seeds to grow

In other words, are they creating little and big tomatoes, or are they creating Monsanto crops?

Buying Hemp Seeds for Growing Purposes

Buying seeds to grow industrial hemp is quite complex, especially here in Australia. Things become even more complex when you are a farmer that is trying to become certified organic.

In terms of seeds there are a couple of things to consider:

  • the strain (fibre, seeds, hurd or a combination)
  • possible genetic modification
  • the seller’s reputation
  • the import rules

The Strain

It is worth really looking into the type of industrial hemp that matches your business plan as a hemp grower. If you are looking online,‘seed bank’ is a search term that will produce some results. There are strains that produce more seeds than others, which is great if you are growing for food purposes You will also find strains that exceed the average length, which is great if you want to use long outs >are released that excel in multiple and sometimes even all areas.

The companies that sell hemp seeds usually also talk about the climate conditions that their hemp strains will perform best in. Definitely something to look into, because it could play a huge role in how well your hemp farm performs.

The most untouched variety of industrial hemp, as far as I have figured out, is monoecious. This means that it only has one sex, either female or male. What you will come across more and more are dioecious strains, which are hemp strains that are both female and male. These strains will be able to fertilise as well as carry seeds.

Genetic Modification

For me, this is a touchy subject. I am very much against companies like Monsanto creating their modified crops that sustain the depletion of the soil and create bad situations for farmers. I have been asking myself, is all the modification that is going on in this sector just tweaking to certain advantages, or full-blown genetic modification?

In other words, are they creating little and big tomatoes, or are they creating Monsanto crops?

This question has not been answered clearly, even when contacting certifying bodies for organic farming here in Australia, they could not give me a clear answer. One person even let slip that they had just had a very similar discussion and had not yet reached consensus.

The Finola hemp strain seems to come with a set of rules that almost make it look like a patented plant – which would suggest genetic modification, because a genetic modification would be the requirement to create a patent for a plant. Finola is one of those varieties that does well in many different areas and climates. In my mind tweaking is fine, after all, we eat different types of cucumbers, apples, tomatoes etc., but I think we should stay clear of genetic modification.

The Seller’s Reputation

This is something that the Government is keen on, and it has everything to do with the level of THC that’s allowed here in Australia. When you look into starting a farm, you will see that other countries allow for slightly different THC levels in their industrial hemp crop. It is of paramount importance that you select the right strain – especially with Australia’s strict regulations regarding industrial hemp. The Government wants a seller, also if you get your seeds from other parts of the world, to be licensed in their country of origin.

If you are in the process of becoming a certified organic farmer and you can’t get your hands on certified organic growing seeds, don’t worry. If you can prove, by receiving statements of three certified sellers, that the certified organic seeds that you want are not available in the quantity and/or quality you need, the certifying bodies will accept this. These statements, together with a statement of the seller saying that the seeds are not genetically modified and are grown without herbicides and pesticides, will allow you to grow industrial hemp, without it interfering with your farm’s conversion to certified organic.

Unfortunately, there are not a lot of certified organic hemp strains at the moment worldw >strain of industrial hemp.

Import Rules

The Department’s Biosecurity Import Conditions system (BICON) details all the exact rules and regulations on their website. —link—-

Long story short, if you are considering importing genetically modified hemp, you need an import permit. If this is not the case, you will still need to check if your seeds need a phytosanitary certificate, which is all about the potential impact on native flora.

The seller you end up buying your seeds from needs to be able to comply with Australian packaging regulations. This means that they are responsible for making sure there is no soil, animal material insects, diseases or other things apart from the seeds in the package. There are criteria for correct labelling as well and every package will be tested and inspected, for which you will pay the bill.

Personally, I found the collection of different industrial hemp strains in Australia quite limited and the strict import rules are not making it easy on you. I would recommend talking to Australian farmers that are growing industrial hemp for the same outcome in the same climate that you are considering , and ask them if they will sell their seeds to you.

Types of Hemp CBD Seeds

Industrial Hemps is characterized as being a dioecious plant, meaning that the sexes of the plant are in separate structures, which makes it possible to obtain hybrids very easily from the crossing of different varieties since their genetics are relatively fast. Thanks to the efforts of growers and specialists in Hemp genetics, there is nowadays a very wide variety of strains of this plant.

On our website you can find all the information necessary for successful cultivation of each variety, the effects it produces at the time of consumption, as well as information on the strains of your interest.

Autoflowering Seeds

Industrial Hemp is also characterized by a short photoperiod to bloom, however, due to a great diversity of breeds created by professional growers, it is possible to find strains that can bloom at different stages of the lighting cycle. Generally after a very short growth period, which is about two month.

Autoflowering hemp strain is a recently developed breed of the plant that is considered to be the best choice for the indoors home growers. These seeds are created for the purpose of providing high quality, convenient maintenance, easy germination, and growing experience. This type of hemp seeds has a short vegetative period and gives flowers regardless of the photoperiod stage. Our autoflowering seeds have a vegetative period of approximately 2 to 3 weeks after the germination process and do not require a separate vegetative and flowering lightning. The flowering of this seeds purely relies on the age of the plant and not the time of year or the light/dark hour ratio.

Some of our CBD seeds that are an autoflowering type of seeds are Master Kush and CBD Critical. Both of these strains are very easy to grow and provide a high-quality harvest regardless of the experience level of the cultivator.

Regular Hemp Seeds

Regular hemp seeds are obtained by natural pollination and give rise to male and female species in a normal proportion, so it is necessary to identify the sex before the total opening of the flowers to avoid pollination.

For Your Consideration

Certain strains are not recommended for beginners or for the first contact with the hemp components, please, a dosage above the recommended CBD could produce drowsiness. Read carefully the description of each variety of CBD seeds.
