Cannabis seeds info
Most people grow cannabis plants to utilize the THC-containing parts of the plant, medicinally or recreationally. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the active ingredients in the plants; some of the effects of THC will make you feel pleasantly chilled, euphoric, focused, energetic and even cheerful. But there are more substances in the cannabis plant, such as other cannabinoids and terpenes. One of the other cannabinoids next to THC is CBD (Cannabidiol), Cannabidiol and THC are connected and Cannabidiol can increase, decrease or even prolong the effects of THC depending on the order they are combined and the proportions of each addition.

Basics 101: Cannabis Seeds Information

You need to know this information!

There are hundreds of different species of seeds, better known as genetics or cultivars. These genetics are available from various companies, known as ‘seed banks’ and a large portion of the sales of these seeds is through online stores. The quality of the cannabis seeds is important, but actual ‘quality’ is a vague concept, because it can mean the quality of the genetics, the quality of the end product, the quality of the actual plant-development etc.

Fertile Seeds

Seeds are wonderful phenomena of nature, and the fact that a whole plant can grow out of something so seemingly insignificant is a wonder to behold. Under the right circumstances (conditions), cannabis seeds can be kept for up to years before being used (planted). In order to harvest cannabis from a plant, you do not need much: water, soil, light and love. But to grow greater yields and increase the quality of the product many aspects such as: temperature, humidity, light intensity, air movement etc. should be considered. This combined with the knowledge of how to correctly grow a successful crop and of course experience (trial & error) should be the ingredients for a proper harvest.

Feminized seeds are the most popular because they produce female plants, which contain flowers (buds), unlike Regular seeds that produce female plants and male plants (males don’t produce flowers and are mostly used to cross-breed). Auto-flowering seeds are handy for growers (budding botanists) with limited time and space, this is because the plants remain small and therefore take less effort to maintain. When you buy cannabis seeds you should consider many things; Where to grow them, inside or outside? What type of soil to use, light-mix or all-mix? What are the best nutrients to use, organic or chemical? What temperature and light requirements do your plants need? Also bear in mind the pH (the acidity or alkaline level) balance of the soil or growing medium. Buying cannabis seeds from a supplier such as the Amsterdam Seed Center gives you the opportunity to speak with experts on how to cultivate your crop in the most effective/successful way. All the cannabis seeds are stored cool and dry in our refrigerators to ensure the best possible germination rate and viability.

Top Seeds

You may be looking for the best seeds for your own growing purposes or perhaps with a group of friends. Some people prefer to grow cannabis for the effect/strength alone, others grow for the subtlety of taste or a combination of both: effect and taste. There are a number of flavor approaches, fruity or sweet (Hazes & Skunks), sharp and intense (Kush & Diesels), or even strains with the classical ‘untampered’ old-school flavor (‘white’ strains like White Widow & Power Plant). To grow cannabis from seeds is the choice of the grower, some growers prefer to grow from clones because it guarantees a homogeneous crop. Others say it is better to grow from seeds rather than clones because seedlings will adapt better to the specific grow-environment (but the genetic expressions can differ depending on the genetic stability). Where you grow is very important (the growing climate), but what you grow (the genetics) is just as important. Mold-sensitive plants and plants that are easily infected with pests should be avoided where possible, especially for outdoor growing where the growing conditions are less controllable compared to indoor growing. We guarantee that our seeds are sterile, so our advice is to also grow them in a clean environment.

Dutch Policy

In the Netherlands, we have a policy of tolerance on the cultivation of cannabis. Everyone can cultivate and grow cannabis plants outdoors and keep a limited stock of cannabis for own use. When selecting your seeds you should focus on aspects such as auto-flowering, feminized, CBD enriched genetics and don’t forget the terpene profile (taste profile). Are you planning to grow outside or inside, and when do you want to start your cultivation project? You are very welcome to ask for help from the experts at Amsterdam Seed Center, because it is our goal to increase the knowledge and expertise from our customers!
