Before dropping a seed into some soil, we recommend giving some thought to what kind of strain you want to grow. Consider how much space you have available, how much money you’re willing to spend, what kind of high and flavours you enjoy when you smoke, and your local weather patterns and climate.
Beginner growers often don’t want to invest large amounts of money into a new hobby. If this applies to you, we advise purchasing cheaper seeds. This means less pressure to produce a perfect outcome, making for a more pleasant and casual growing experience. Oh, and “cheap seeds” doesn’t equate to bad genetics. Many cheaper varieties offer superb yields of high-quality flowers.

Feminized cannabis seeds will produce only female plants for getting buds, so there is no need to remove males or worry about female plants getting pollinated. Feminized seeds are produced by causing the monoecious condition in a female cannabis plant—the resulting seeds are nearly identical to the self-pollinated female parent, as only one set of genes is present.
Autoflowering seeds are also popular with beginning growers. They are easy to grow because you don’t have to worry about light cycles and how much light a plant receives.
