When it comes to collecting, one of the most exciting things you can choose to collect is cannabis seeds. These controversial little beans are one of the most genetically engineered organic products available, probably only slightly behind roses. The amazing properties, along with the sheer number of different types of seed available, make them one of the most interesting and terrifying collections to start.

One of the quests that some collectors undertake is finding their perfect cannabis seed. Each different strain has a different set of traits that will make for the ideal source to suit your taste. Here’s what to look for…


THC stands for ‘Tetrahydrocannabinol.’ This is the main psychoactive component of a fully grown cannabis plant, and if you search for seeds, you will see the THC percentage listed. Although your seeds contain no real THC, each strain is you are signed to produce a plant with this THC content reliably. If you’re lucky enough to live in a country where growing cannabis is legal, you can try it out. If you’re not, you’ll have to make do with your perfect seed that has the potential to produce certain levels of THC.


Another thing you may want to know about your cannabis seed is how much cannabis it could yield if it were legal to grow it. Yield is normally measured in grams and is calculated from the average creation found by the grower. If you want to know that your seed can produce a high output, this is one Trait to look at.


Choosing a strain isn’t just about the essays You’ll find fairly similar THC and yield levels in different cannabis seeds, so you should pick a strain that you like. A good way to do this is to look at those that have won legitimate awards for quality. The most prestigious of these is certainly the High Times Cannabis Cup. Every year they assess which seed bank and which individual cannabis seed is the best of the year. Feminized seeds are probably the most de rigueur right now.


The last and most practical thing to look out for with a cannabis seed is how easy it is to deliver it. You can expect your excellent sources to be provided free of charge and very discreetly.
