how many seeds per ounce cannabis

From experience, we know that 93% of the cannabis seeds grow into a plant. This is of course a very high success rate, but not 100%. So you will have to use extra seeds in order to have the certainty of eventually becoming a weed plant.

To grow weed, you need high quality marijuana seeds. But how many seeds do you need to grow weed? And then there’s the question: how many marijuana plants do you want to grow?

In order to calculate exactly how many cannabis seeds you need, you have to take two determining factors into account:

Every marijuana grower needs to understand each plant yield to calculate the total yield to every harvest. If you are starting a marijuana business, then this will be a helpful guide for you before starting it. But nonetheless, it should be remembered that these numbers are estimated and rather depends on the factors listed above. However, to begin, the yield of every cannabis plant varies according to its location whether it’s indoors or outdoors.
