High Quality Cannabis Seeds
To establish the quality of a Cannabis seed, you first need to know what to look for in a Cannabis seed.
To begin with, the seed should be fully matured. Green seeds will not be viable enough to germinate, and you would have wasted your money on nothing. Proper storage is also important in order to prevent fungi and other microbes from spoiling the seed.
The best conditions to store the seeds would be in a cool, dark place, and if you cannot use the seed within at least 16 months, then it is advisable to freeze the seed until you are able to use it.
Genetics play an important part in the quality of seeds. The parents of the seeds need to have proven themselves as producers of strong, good quality crops that will yield substantial harvests. Certain so-called “breeders” will try to sell you seed that was not properly researched in the first place, and the seeds will not be the good quality that you have paid for.
Some better breeders will take time using special techniques to produce viable seeds that will yield good harvests, while the best breeders will dedicate all their time to create the best inbred strains that will produce the most popular and sought after Cannabis strains.
The Germinating Process
Wild female Cannabis plants simply drop their ripe seeds as the plants die in the fall, relying on the natural germinating process to take place and the seeds to sprout as soon as the weather Conditions become sufficiently warm for them to grow and produce the next generation of Cannabis plants.
Traditionally, growers use outdoor methods to grow their crops by manually sowing their seeds into fields where the conditions have been made ideal for Cannabis plants to grow, bloom and produce harvests.
There are many methods by which Cannabis can be germinated and cultivated, the easiest and simplest being to plant individual seeds in potting soil and covering them by about ⅛ to ¼ inch of the soils used and keeping the soil moist and warm enough to suit the conditions that are best for the plants to grow in.
When the seeds have sprouted, they can be planted out to their permanent growing spot. There are various techniques to ensure that seeds will germinate with the best possible chance of surviving.
High CBD Cannabis Seeds
CBD or Cannabidiol is the second most abundant cannabinoid in Cannabis. CBD does not have the psychoactive characteristic that THC has, and it has been established that CBD can actually counteract the psychoactive effect of THC.
CBD is therefore the most desirable substance in Cannabis for medical purposes. Cannabis used for Hemp production was selected for various qualities, including its high CBD content.
In recent years producers of CBD products have managed to produce Hemp CBD products that have a very low to no THC content, which makes these strains perfect for medical use. There are certain breeders that are currently working on producing seeds that will yield crops with a zero percentage of THC content.
As soon that goal is achieved, the medical world will have gained a super medical substance which will be the breakthrough of the century, and we will also have more ammunition with which to approach decision makers at governmental level. Crops such as these will also be a core ingredient of certain high quality health foods.
Cannabis seed prices are currently extremely high, the reason being that they are still illegal in most of the world. I can, however foresee a time in future when we should be able to buy Cannabis seeds at the local supermarket at competitive prices compared to squash, tomatoes, etc.
This should happen as soon as we can prove to the world that high CBD Cannabis is not the highly dangerous and psychoactive drug that most people perceive it to be.
Cannabis Seeds for Sale in the USA
The use and possession of weeds nowadays have a very big difference from the past law passed by different states in the United States. The majority of states prohibit whatever activity is done involving marijuana. There were penalties associated with using it because it was considered as an abusive drug. The federal states take a deep control in legalizing it but this law was reformed after several elections that passed by.
People from different states have divided opinions and so are the lawmakers. There are some who agreed because of wide benefits of using it but there are also some who criticize it based on their beliefs. This is a big battle and lawmakers did alterations on the law until they earned additional support to pass it.
Growing Acceptance of Cannabis Use
There may be some who have a strong will to prohibit its use, however, as time goes by, people are becoming more aware of marijuana and they started to accept it as part of their society. Even presidential candidates in the 2016 election have different opinions on different ways or aspect marijuana should be legalized.
Researchers involved in the discovery of health benefits of marijuana is an added factor why this big battle is getting strong as of now. The results of their research play a significant role in passing the law of marijuana legalization specifically for medical purposes.
Selling and using cannabis has long been a debate in many countries around the globe and the United States has several states that supported the use of it legally. These states are Washington D.C., Oregon, Alaska, Washington state, and District of Columbia. Weeds can be used anywhere in Washington D.C. but buying is illegal there.
Medical Benefits of Cannabis
Cannabis has long been discovered to be beneficial for some reasons. One of the main purposes of using it is for medical purposes. It is said to have many health benefits and medicinal properties that also became the reason why it won to have it legalized in some states in the US.
Its medicinal properties are used to treat glaucoma, improve the lung health, and is even known to prevent cancer from spreading all over the body. The most well-known benefit it provides is to reduce the symptoms produced by epileptic seizures. This was also used to control seizures in kids and has been discovered to be effective.
From Prohibition to Medical to Recreational
Some states allow the usage of cannabis for medicinal purpose, however, using it for recreational purpose is prohibited. These states are New York, California, Arizona, New Jersey, etc. Different states have different cannabis policy as they are also governed differently.
Cannabis oil is also manufactured and is used for the treatment of a specific illness. However, no matter cannabis oil is said to be effective for treating illnesses, some states still did not allow the legalization of using this.
Different laws in different States
So before you bring any amount with you going to another state, you need to make sure that you know their state policy. Make sure you bring it packed in its original package and place it in the trunk of your car. All states prohibit driving while you are under the influence of marijuana.
There are also differences in all states when it comes to the cultivation of weeds. There states, like Washington D.C., that prohibits buy and sell of marijuana, but cultivating of up to 6 cannabis plants is allowed. You have to be 21 years old and above for you to grow it for recreational purpose.
You have to conduct a thorough investigation for you to know the policy of cannabis possession, selling, buying, cultivating, transfer to another adult, and using in different states before you take the action. Some states, like Oregon, requires you to obtain a license for you to sell a cannabis no matter it is declared legal.
Keep up with the Cannabis Policy
Keeping in compliant with the cannabis policy is very important. You have to stay updated with their guidelines because some states also change their law. Even if it is used for medical purpose, there are still limitations set which are also another important thing you need to know. States like New Jersey and Montana only limits the use of weed for medical purpose of up to 2 ounces and 1 ounce respectively.
Same policy goes with growing marijuana at home. There are also limitations set even though it is declared to be legal so beware to this qualifying condition that also differs from the medical weed law passed by different states.
Since selling of marijuana is legal in different states, there are marijuana shops built so you can purchase them. However, you still need to consistently abide by their law because they still set a limited amount in buying them.
Buying Marijuana Online
An option others do purchase marijuana is buying them through online. You just have to make sure that the online seller is reliable based on the reviews they earned. Some claim to sell high-quality cannabis but reviews written by past clients could testify if they really receive a real cannabis. There are pictures of cannabis shown online that seems true, but you need to make sure you will be receiving a high-quality one to satisfy you with your needs.
Recently, Nevada was able to gather a large number of voters who agreed to legalize marijuana for recreational purpose. They already legalized the use of marijuana for medical purpose before this recent law was passed. The state encountered a long journey before they made it possible and their struggles won.
Since laws are also subject to change depending on how the lawmakers work and think about it, there are still many states we are waiting to pass the full legalization of the use of marijuana. There are always changes in the law and that is what we need to keep an eye of.
Moving forward, marijuana is more likely to win the battle when it comes to legalization and reclassification. Aside from its health benefits, it could also help the US save a lot of money in the prohibition of its use.
Cannabis Seeds and the Law
It all depends on where you live in the USA, whether you are able to legally obtain Cannabis seeds. Certain Sates, like Colorado, have completely legalized the cultivation and use of Marijuana for all purposes. Note that you have to obtain a license to grow Marijuana even if you are a citizen in a state where Cannabis is legal, because at a federal level the growing and owning of Cannabis seeds are still considered to be illegal.
However, consider the fact that those states are actually breaking federal laws by allowing the growth and ownership of seeds, so it is probably okay to own seeds if you have a license or recommendation and follow all the codes laid down by that state.
Seed banks in some other countries are allowed to sell their Cannabis seeds “for souvenir purposes only”, but be aware that USA customs will probably seize any such package.
