Weed seeds is a street name for cannabis (or marijuana) seeds. They are natures method of allowing the cannabis plant to be spread around the environment and regrow.
Weeds seeds can be legally bought and sold in certain regions e.g. large sections of Europe but remain illegal in other areas. Over the last 2-3 decades many professional weed breeders have dedicated their expertise to breeding the best yielding and most potent weed varieties they can. The seeds from these prize strains can then be distributed to head shops and growers around the world.
One result of the trade in weed seeds has been the incredible enrichment in the genetic diversity of cannabis. Rare Cannabis indica genetics from in accessible Himalayan valleys have now found their way into back gardens and greenhouses all over the world.
Exceptional Cannabis sativa genetics from the deepest Thai jungles have made their way to growrooms and greenhouses in Canada and Scandinavia. Sometimes these strains retain their purebred characteristics, and other times the strains have been carefully and painstakingly crossbred with other varieties creating precious new weed strains.
Dutch Passion, as one of the very first companies to start selling weed seeds in the 1980’s, have played an important role in the preservation and diversification of cannabis.
Weed seeds of different varieties may have subtle differences in appearance, but they all perform the same job. The seeds will swell in moist conditions during germination and over the period of a few days a seedling will emerge complete with roots and a first pair of leaves. Weed seeds can be germinated and grown in soil or any number of modern alternatives such as coco fibre, clay pellets, glass wool etc. Growing great weed these days is not at all difficult. Good light levels are needed for respectable yields, along with a suitable growing medium with enough nutrients and water. But the first job for any potential grower is finding a seed supplier that has the experience and know-how to equip you with the best weed seeds that nature can provide. Dutch Passions advice is to get the best seeds you can, start with quality genetics from a trusted source.
Thanks to professional breeders, the choice of varieties has never been greater but the choice can sometimes seem confusing. The cheapest weed seed suppliers are rarely the best, but if you are looking for great quality at an affordable price then Dutch Passion recommend you take a look at their seed collection.
