cracking cannabis seeds

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:

One way to avoid sexing plants is to buy feminized seeds (more below), which ensures every seed you plant will be a bud-producing female.

Cannabis can be either male or female—also called “dioecious”—but only females produce the buds we all know and love. For reproduction, males have pollen sacs and pollinate females, causing female flowers to produce seeds.

Viable or not, there’s only one sure way to find out if a bagseed will grow. If you’re simply curious to learn and not as concerned with the overall outcome, you can plant a couple of bagseeds outside and see what happens.

A lot of classic weed strains that have been around for a while come in feminized form. Some popular fem seeds are:

So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.

However, a type of cannabis called Cannabis ruderalis, which developed in extreme northern conditions without much sunlight, will begin flowering once the plant reaches a certain age—they automatically start flowering regardless of the amount of light they receive, hence the name “autoflower.”

Do this next time.
Soak the seeds in a cup of water for a day (24hours)
Then take all seeds that Sank to the bottom of the cup and plant them Gently into soil so they can grow.
If they Don’t sink, even after fiddling your finger in the cup, then They most likely will not work.

2nd. Gently crack the seeds open? what the heck. the Older Skin being thicker.
The seeds do Not continue to grow once they are off the plant, how the hell does there shell get thicker?

1st. if it takes more then 2 weeks you can almost Garentee that the seed will Not work, either you didn’t germenate then properly or the seeds are No good.

i take different steps more and more drastic all on heating pad
1. soak over night in water lay small piece of terrycloth on top to keep under water if dont sink if soil
2. not cracked switch to peroxide soak overnight
3. if not cracked between napkins the old fashioned way for a week at max
4. after the week nothing to lose i start scarcification i uses sandpaper/ i pick the seal over the split off/ i have broken plugs of the shell off/ i have stuck a razor in split it open not deep enough o do damage you have a tiny space between seeds internals and the outer shell keeping in mind you have nothing to lose

I really don’t know how much i would trust that Friends Knoledge.

Hope that helps ya some.

You obviosly found this site in order to post this question, so Look around, all the answere’s are here!

If you’re a citizen of Canada, the U.S., the Netherlands, or Spain – all countries with lighter cannabis policies – it’s legal to germinate cannabis seeds. However, additional rules apply depending on what part of the country you live in and what seed type you want to germinate. Nonetheless, it’s safe to assume that germination of cannabis seeds is legal everywhere where it’s legal to grow cannabis, and especially if you’re planning to start a garden of medicinal marijuana, you likely won’t break any rules by germinating seeds of strains with THC content lower than 1%.

The perfect pH for cannabis seed germination is between 5.5-6.0.

In order to germinate and survive the first days of life, cannabis seeds and seedlings need to be kept under certain conditions like warm temperature, high levels of humidity, darkness for seeds/lots of light for seedlings, and, of course, peace and quiet. Outdoor environments can therefore be too unpredictable – if the weather changes and brings heavy rain or wind, or if a bird or cat decides to try and snack on the seedling, the young plant most likely won’t survive and you’ll have to start all over. That’s why we recommend germinating your seeds and growing seedlings indoors, where you have full control over their environment.

Give Seedlings Enough Light

In our blog, we’ve covered the legality of cannabis seeds and everything you can do to stay safe. For more information, check out the following articles:

That’s it! After a couple of days, you’ll see your sprouts emerging.

In other countries, governments may draw the line at germination. For example, in the UK, it’s legal to trade and keep cannabis seeds, but you have to be careful with their germination, as this is where the law gets broken.

As we’ve already pointed out, cannabis seedlings are very gentle, and you need to be careful not to put them in any danger or stress. Use the following tips, and your seedlings will make it safely to the next stage of their lifecycle.
