    How can you choose the best cannabis seeds?

    If you have only just entered the world of cannabis, you are probably wondering how to choose the best cannabis seeds? There is a huge choice of strains, flavors and growing methods. That is why in this blog we list what you can pay attention to and how to choose the seeds that suit your situation.


    Choosing cannabis seeds: what should you pay attention to?

    When you look around our webshop, you will see all kinds of cannabis seeds. There is a wide variety of sativa and indica strains, and then there are also autoflowers,feminized seed and CBD seeds. You can almost no longer see the forest for the trees.


    If you want to start growing cannabis, the first thing you will have to consider is whether you are going to put your plants indoors or outdoors, how much space you have and what your needs are in terms of effects, smell and taste. Below, we list the influence of these factors and how you can choose the best cannabis seeds that suit your circumstances.


    Sativas: love warmth and sun

    Are you going for Sativas, then it is good to know that these plants originally come from warm and tropical countries. They like a lot of sun and can withstand higher temperatures. In addition, they can grow quite tall. On the other hand, you have to take into account the fact that Sativas have a longer flowering time. On average, it takes ten to fourteen weeks before you can harvest. However, the buds do provide you with a euphoric and energetic high.


    Indicas: Smaller and adapted to cool weather

    Unlike Sativas, Indicasa bit smaller and they also bloom faster. They are better adapted to lower temperatures. Indicas are suitable for growers who have less space and when you live in a temperate climate. They have a shorter flowering time. Indicas produce dense buds that provide a wonderfully relaxing high.

    Species that flower quickly

    Do you want to be able to harvest your harvest faster? This can be useful if you live somewhere where summers are short, but also if you want to harvest multiple harvests in 1 season. If you grow indoors, fast flowering plants can be beneficial because they can reduce costs.


    Species that produce a large harvest

    If you have a lot of space and can accommodate plants that grow large, you can go for varieties that will yield large harvests. Of course you have to take into account that these plants, which can grow up to 3 meters high if you have luck, are more visible. But if you have the space, it is of course wonderful to grow such large cannabis plants in your garden.


    Please note that plants that grow so tall also need a little more maintenance. But you will get a large harvest in return! Examples of cannabis plants that grow tall and produce a large harvest are California Indica and Delahaze.


    Weed plants that stay small

    If you don't have that much space (if you grow in a small garden, on a balcony or in a grow cupboard), it is more convenient to opt for cannabis plants that remain smaller. Even though such a plant does not grow very tall, these plants always produce a surprising harvest. Smaller plants, such as Medical 49+ CBD and Chronic Thunder, fit perfectly in a small grow tent and are less likely to be noticed in a garden.


    Strains with a high CBD content

    Those who would like to benefit from the health benefits of CBD can opt for strains with a high percentage of CBD. This cannabinoid has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and sedative effects. But it also has an inhibitory effect on THC, which makes these strains also popular among people who want to be less bothered by the disadvantages of THC. There is a lot of choice in CBD strains, for example Bona Dea CBD+, King's Kush CBD and Purplematic CBD.

    Choosing the best cannabis seeds: taste, aroma and effects

    The above factors are important to pay attention to if you want to choose the best cannabis seeds, but of course taste, aroma and effects are also of great importance.



    One of the most important factors that will determine your choice for the best cannabis seeds are the effects. The effects are determined by the different substances in cannabis, such as cannabinoids (e.g. CBD, THC, CBG), but also terpenes and flavonoids. Usually the percentages of CBD and THC are mentioned in the specifications and the description indicates what effects you can expect. It is therefore useful to look carefully at this to determine whether the strain you have in mind will have the effect you want.


    When you start using cannabis, taste largely determines how much you can enjoy the buds. How do you find out if you will like the taste? If you look at the different strains, many varieties already have a flavor profile. The taste can be fruity or spicy, somewhat sweet or spicy. And sometimes you can also get an impression of the taste from the name, such as with Strawberry Glue. Of course, you won't really know in advance whether you will like the taste, but you can at least take your own preferences into account when making your choice.



    Finally there is the aroma. Aroma is all about the smell of the buds. This may differ slightly from the taste. How you use cannabis also matters, because heating changes the structure of the terpenes, which are responsible for the smell. You will not only have to deal with the smell when using cannabis, but also during cultivation. So it's nice if you like the smell of your weed.


    Choosing the best cannabis seeds is not that easy at all. There is a lot to take into account. But if you pay attention to the above points, you will be able to make your choice, so that you get the cannabis seeds that suit exactly what you want!
