do cannabis seeds contain thc

Hemp seeds were used by young women to conjure visions of their future husbands. Going out on Midsummer’s Eve (or other significant date, depending on the location), the woman would scatter hempseed on the ground whilst reciting a rhyme that begins “Hempseed I sow, hempseed grow…” nine times. Once this was done, she would look back over her left shoulder and hopefully see her future husband holding a scythe (giving scythes another traditional connection to hemp – see below!). This practice was popular in the 19 th century CE.

Cannabis seeds may all look pretty much the same, but within those brown, speckled hulls, the potential for infinite variety is captured. From industrial hemp to carefully refined sativas, from the latest autoflowering strains to the oldest cannabis seeds yet found, it all starts from a seed! Here we present ten interesting facts about cannabis seeds for you to enjoy and share.

Hemp seeds are a common ingredient in bird food, and there is an urban legend of accidental crops caused by someone – usually a grandmother – emptying the bird food bowl at the bottom of the garden and then being arrested six months later for the flourishing plants they were unwittingly growing. In 2014, something like this actually happened, although the story had already been circulating for years.

8. Hemp seeds can be magical!

Cannabis seeds are usually around the size of a match-head. They can vary by variety from not much larger than a tomato seed to almost as big as a small pea. The size of the seed is no indication of the size (or vitality) of the cannabis plant that will grow from it.

There is no visible difference between regular cannabis seeds, feminized cannabis seeds, autoflowering cannabis seeds, and seeds for growing industrial hemp plants. For this reason, always buy your cannabis seeds from a reputable seed bank (such as Sensi Seeds and White Label Seed Company) so that you definitely know what you’re getting.

In many countries, the possession of cannabis seeds is legal (usually because they do not contain any THC) whereas germinating them is harshly punished. Many people are forced to buy and preserve their seeds as collector’s items, in the hope that legislation in their area will soon change to a more enlightened approach to home cannabis cultivation.

If cannabis seeds are stored correctly, they can remain good for up to 10 years. However, you have to make sure that you take the proper steps to ensure that they remain healthy and strong.

8 The Oldest Cannabis Seeds Ever Found Is More Than 4,800 Years Old

Cannabis seeds have many properties, they are used in many ways, and they have even been the source of spiritual beliefs and urban legends. You learned that hemp seeds and cannabis seeds are one in the same, or at least they come from the same plant!

Virgin, or unrefined, hemp oil is praised for its high levels of fatty acids. You already know that the oil contains Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, but you probably don’t know that the ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 acids in hemp oil is the exact ratio that is required by the human body. Our bodies do not make these fatty acids naturally, so we have to get it from food sources, such as hempseed oil. There are also studies of hempseed oil that could have it manufactured on a much larger scape as it is a candidate for the production of biodiesel fuel.

Medically, indica is often used to treat conditions such as anxiety, pain, muscle spasms, and insomnia. Sativa strains are often used to treat conditions such as depression, mood disorders, fatigue, and ADD. Indica plants typically yield more seeds than sativa, because they are generally larger plants. Again, however, that doesn’t necessarily mean that all indica-dominant plants will yield 1,000 seeds, nor does it mean that all sativa-dominant plants will be smaller than indica plants. The strains have different taste profiles, as well.
