We at i49 stand behind the integrity and quality of our seed offerings. If you closely follow our guidelines and your seeds don’t germinate, just let us know. We will send replacement seeds equivalent to an 80% rate of germination. With this guarantee, you’ll always have a sizable crop.

Alternatively, our Hybrid strains combine the best elements of Indica and Sativa. They’re ideal for use at any time and they work well on a range of medical conditions. These seeds are very popular among our new and inexperienced growers for their resiliency and simplicity. As you’re shopping, you’ll find a wide range of seeds in every category, sorted by price, average rating, newness, and popularity. Whether you’re looking for Sour Diesel, Green Crack, Purple Kush, Fire OG, Super Lemon, or Siberian Snow, we have the feminized cannabis seeds you want.

If, after a week has passed, your seeds’ taproots haven’t appeared, insufficient moisture may be the cause. With the emergency method, it’s sometimes possible to restore the seeds’ moisture. Remove the cannabis seeds from the towel and the plate, re-submerging them in distilled water until taproots form. Then, repeat the steps we’ve given above, keeping seeds covered until the taproots are a half-inch long.

While some states have adjusted their drug statutes to include decriminalization or legalization, cannabis still remains illegal in the state of Indiana (even for medicinal purposes). The possession of even a small amount of cannabis is a crime, albeit a misdemeanor. In some of the state’s jurisdictions, first-time offenders may be able to enter diversion programs, but in other cases, there’s a risk of hefty fines and jail time.

Cover your seeds with the other half of the towel, and be sure to periodically mist them with water as required. After 2-7 days, you will see taproots emerge from the seeds. Leave the seeds on the moist paper towel until the taproots reach approximately ¾” in length. Then, it’s time for transplantation and growth!

Not only will you not get a ‘mental high’ from CBD, but the cannabidiol will also counteract the effects of THC. This makes our high-CBD medicinal strains a viable alternative to conventional treatments. Additionally, for certain symptoms, a combination of CBD and THC has been proven to be more helpful than CBD by itself.

In the state of Indiana, high-CBD, low-THC extracts are permissible for patients with conditions such as:
