how to storage cannabis seeds

Of course, it’s also possible that you have bought several cannabis seeds and that you want to keep a part for, for example, next year. The best way to store cannabis seeds for a long term is to freeze the seeds. Make sure you vacuum pack the seeds, place the seeds in a dark lockable (plastic) container and put them in the freezer. If done right, you can store your seeds for years.

The best way to temporarily store weed seeds (several days, weeks or months) is to place the seeds in a dark, lockable (plastic) container in the refrigerator.

Note: seeds that are stored in the freezer should be germinated immediately after you take the seeds out of the freezer. Do not let the seeds thaw first.

Storing cannabis seeds for a long term

Please note: once you have decided to use the marijuana seeds, place the seeds in the box for 6 hours outside the refrigerator, so the seeds calmly reach room temperature.

To prevent unused cannabis seeds from germinating or getting damaged, you have to store weed seeds in a cool, dark and moisture-free place.

Once you have received your ordered cannabis seeds, most growers start their grow right away. After all, your seeds are fresh, and you want to prevent the cannabis seeds from germinating in an uncontrolled way. However, if you can not or do not want to start with your cultivation immediately, it is important to store the seeds properly.

Cannabis seeds can withstand very low temperatures, but air humidity and fluctuations in temperature should be avoided at all times. Keep in mind that marijuana seeds are living organisms. When the seed makes contact with water, the nutrients in the seed that trigger the germination process will be released.

Ideally, you want to store your seeds in a cool, dark, and dry place. Whenever possible, keep your seeds in their original packaging. At Royal Queen Seeds, we’ve specially designed our packaging to protect our seeds until you’re ready to plant them.

For long-term storage, it’s best to keep your seeds in a sealed container inside the fridge. Remember that opening the door of your fridge can actually cause some pretty dramatic temperature shifts. If you happen to have a second fridge that gets used less often than the one in your kitchen, use that one to store your seeds.

IDEAL CONDITIONS FOR CANNABIS SEEDS

Cannabis seeds have three main enemies:

If, for example, you live in an area with very warm daytime temperatures and cool nights, try to protect your seeds from these changes and don’t store them outside in a shed or garage.

Humidity is easily one of the biggest threats to your seeds. Here is how different levels of humidity (% relative humidity) affect your cannabis seeds:
