As interest in CBD as a medicine has grown, many breeders have crossed high-CBD hemp with cannabis. These strains have little or no THC, 1:1 ratios of THC and CBD, or some have a high-THC content along with significant amounts of CBD (3% or more).
In some cases, even if a seed isn’t completely mature, there’s still a chance it could be viable. But often these are extremely weak, take long to develop, and express other unfavorable characteristics. Growers usually discard weak plants to free up space.
What are high-CBD cannabis seeds?
Also, autoflower plants are small—perfect for closet grows or any small grow, or growing outdoors where you don’t want your neighbors to see what you’re up to.
Cannabis seeds require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. There are many methods to germinate seeds, but for the most common and simplest method, you will need:
Take four sheets of paper towels and soak them with distilled water. The towels should be soaked but shouldn’t have excess water running off.
Royal Runtz packs some serious heat. Her dense and resinous flowers hold massive levels of THC and terpenes that light up the taste buds. With a THC content of 27%, she holds the title as one of the strongest strains in the RQS archive. You’ll feel her energising and euphoric high set in after only a couple of hits. Although her tastes of candy and fruit will tempt you to keep smoking, you should take your time with this potent lady to find your sweet spot.
Purple Queen is a sight to behold. This royal specimen dominates the landscape in grow rooms and gardens. Her eye-catching colas feature a bright green core and expand out into shades of deep purple. Her fan leaves—radiating bright pink—are equally as alluring. This unique colour is thanks to flavonoids known as anthocyanins, which produce a spectrum of pigments from red to black. Purple Queen is an indica-dominant specimen, the progeny of Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani. She’s ultimately a strain for the evenings, when her sedating effects can fully take hold. Her multicoloured flowers produce a THC content of 22% and a terpene profile defined by notes of citrus.

Green Crack Punch stems from a breeding project involving Green Crack and Purple Punch. These two varieties exist at opposite ends of the indica-sativa spectrum, and thus are the perfect match for one another. Their offspring features a close balance of 60% sativa genetics and 40% indica, and produces up to 500g/m² after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Her colas grow tall and wide, boasting shades of purple, green, orange, and tinges of yellow. A THC content of 18% makes for a mellow and balanced high that soothes the body whilst keeping the mind alert and active.
This cultivar produces great results both indoors and outdoors. Plants grown indoors reach 90–130cm and pump out up to 500g/m². Prepare to harvest their flowers 8–9 weeks after initiating flowering. Outdoor plants grow to taller heights of 160–180cm and produce between 400–450g/plant. Prepare to harvest and dry these buds in the middle of October.
Legendary OG Punch grows tall, wide, and produces a dense canopy abundant with bud sites. Her colas are dense and feature a dark green canvas contrasted by large quantities of glistening trichomes. Our breeders created this unique hybrid after carefully crossing Legend OG and Purple Punch over several generations. She emerged as a hardy variety capable of thriving in a wide range of climates. Indoors, she’ll produce a rewarding 500–550g/m² after a flowering time of 8 weeks. Her slightly indica-dominant buds possess a THC level of 19% alongside refreshing and fruity terpenes—limonene and pinene dominate the mix.
