Some people like a beer after work and others like a hoochie. Australia has an old cannabis culture and its also a very good region of the world to grow either hemp, medical marijuana, or just some good old backyard bush. It all starts with a cannabis seed, and with spring around the corner, we will discuss some good cannabis seeds to buy in and out of Australia as well as how to germinate them.
So you can easily purchase cannabis seeds online. If you do a quick google search you will see millions of results. But don’t be fooled, not all of these links are from reliable seedbanks or breeders. Reliable weed seeds online also mean a quality product, so your purchase of seeds should arrive quickly and in one piece. Not only that, but your seeds should also germinate well and produce a cannabis plant as advertised.
Buying cannabis seeds in Australia is fairly straightforward and with the new growing season around the corner, it would be wise to purchase early. As the saying goes, “the early bird catches the worm”. And I guess you are reading this article, so you already are on your way to growing success.
There are thousands of varsities of cannabis strains available on the market. What is nice about buying seeds in the comfort of your own home is that you can take your time researching the different strains and buy the right varieties of cannabis seeds that meet your requirements. Mostly all strains you purchase today are hybrid strains and either Sativa or Indica dominant, maybe even a balance right between Indica and Sativa.
Sativa Dominant Cannabis – Durban Poison
This Sativa dominant landrace comes from Africa but has acclimatized to the Australia and cannabis culture. This strain is known as one of the strongest marijuana plants because it can survive at any adverse climate.
Indica Dominant – Purple Pineberry
This hybrid is indica dominant (80% India and 20% Sativa). It can be grown only outdoors.
Balanced Sativa/Indica – Gelato
Gelato (also known as Larry Bird) is a crossbreed of Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. It has 55% in India and 45% of Sativa.
Cannabis seeds are also classed as either regular, auto, or feminized and even combinations of auto and fem. Regular cannabis seeds are true-breeding strains and they can either be male or female plants. Feminized cannabis seeds on the other hand will be only female plants, while automatic ( auto ) is not light sensitive and will automatically flower after vegging. Both regular seeds and feminized seeds are photosensitive and will only flower once the light it receives is consistently less than 12 hours per day, like in the shorter winter months.
You will also want to know the difference between the different cannabinoids in each strain and maybe consider buying a CBD or THC cannabis strain. You should definitely know the difference between CBD and THC before purchasing these strains.
Once you have selected and bought your seeds and received them you will want to immediately germinate them. The best method of germination is the paper towel method. Simply place your seeds separately in between moist paper towels. Check your seeds every morning, making sure the paper towel is moist and not damp. Within several days you will notice your seed sprouting and it is then ready to plant into some soil and continue growing.
