small weed seeds

Although it is true that ripe cannabis seeds tend to have a dark shell that can go from brown to black, with lines that look like tiger stripes, this cannot be regarded as a quality indicator by itself.

This article has been conceived to answer all the key questions that we often get asked by clients and growers regarding the physical characteristics of our main product: premium-quality cannabis seeds.

So we can openly say that this difference is simply visual. If we take the example of a Moby Dick seed, its dimensions will most likely be bigger than those of Critical +, although you can also find slight variations between seeds from the same strain. Don’t forget that, as with all living beings, cannabis seeds are also biologically different amongst themselves.

If, on the contrary, the seeds seem too big, this may be caused by a lack of macronutrients during the plant’s growth cycle. As any grower with certain experience will know, calcium deficiencies are corrected by adding calcium and magnesium, a combination that helps reestablish the perfect nutritional balance of plants.

This could be compared to a newborn whose physical appearance quickly evolves during their first few days of life in order to adapt to the completely new outside environment.

Another aspect that can be misleading is the fact that a ripe, freshly-harvested cannabis seed has a brighter and darker colour than after it’s been packaged for 1 to 2 months.

These cannabis seeds were germinated between two wet pieces of paper towel!

If a cannabis seed was produced with a male doing the pollinating, it means that about half of the resulting seeds will end up being male (which you don’t want, because only female flowers turn into bud). In that case, you want to determine the gender of your young plants as soon as you can so you can toss all the male ones before they start making pollen sacs.

So I’m a big believer in the fact that if you put the seed in the ground and a fast-growing healthy seedling comes out of it, it was a viable seed! Don’t toss a seed you are really interested in just because it’s a little pale; give it a chance (I’m talking more about tan seeds, it’s very unlikely a yellow seed will sprout)!

The term ‘bad seeds’ usually refers to any type of seed that has a significantly higher likelihood of causing problems in a grow. I’ll cover the most common reasons for bad seeds in this tutorial!

When I first started growing I was told that good cannabis seeds needed to be very hard with dark tiger striping. If you could crush it between your fingers, it was a bad seed, or so I was told. This has not been my experience at all!
