Let’s face it: you can’t grow weed without weed. Even though cannabis thrives like a weed, it won’t just ‘magically appear’ in your garden. If you want to start growing cannabis, you’ll need one of two things. Either you get a cutting from a living ‘mother plant’, providing you with a 1:1 genetic clone of the mother. Or you purchase high quality cannabis seeds from a trusted supplier. A prime source for top notch genetics is the Amsterdam Genetics Seeds Bank, where you can select all your favorite weed strains and phenotypes. This is a great way to explore the different tastes and effects we have in store, as well as being your guarantee for world-class cannabis genetics.
Let’s go over these Grower’s Essentials in some more detail.
1. Quality Cannabis Seeds
Outdoors and indoors, regardless of growing mediums or strain genetics, cannabis plants need water to survive. Not too much and not too little. And believe it or not, even though this sounds like the easiest part of growing weed, watering is where most novice growers get it wrong. Luckily there is a way to determine if a plant needs more or less water: the leaves.
A final tip for late bloomers is to pick autoflower seeds. Autoflowering strains pack special genetics that don’t give a toss about how much daylight they receive. That means autoflowers determine their own perfect time to start flowering. Of course, that won’t add a single day to how much summer you have left; but you’ll seriously improve your odds of getting a nice harvest in before the cold sets in.
Indoor growers need to keep the fresh air (rich in CO2) coming in and old air (rich in O2) going out. This requires an extractor fan with carbon filter for the smell, fans for air circulation and a fresh air inlet in a closed-off growing environment. This is also where growing outside saves you a lot of trouble.
The Royal Queen Seeds Store opened in the heart of Amsterdam a few years ago – a small but highly-specialised shop that has been full ever since it opened, not just because of its excellent location but also thanks to the varied and high-quality product assortment, not to mention its affordable prices. Having seen thousands of visitors and foreign tourists pass through its doors, the Royal Queen Seeds Store has become a point of reference for growers from all over Europe.
The shop’s menu is perfect for its international vision. Due to their ever-growing popularity, feminized seeds are the most frequent item on the menu. Royal Queen Seeds, the shop’s own brand of seeds, are the most important and convenient on the market. You will, of course, also find well-known varieties such as White Widow and Northern Lights, but also the Spanish success, Critical, or the more traditional Dutch Amnesia Haze.

The Royal Queen Seeds Store assortment also includes seeds from the most renowned and appreciated Dutch brands, such as Sensi Seeds, Serious Seeds, High Quality Seeds, Black Label, Paradise Seeds and, of course, Dutch Passion. The shop has also decided to add a couple of excellent international colleagues to its selection, which means that Kannabia seeds (Spain) and the special Joint Doctor autoflowering Lowryders (also feminized!) from Italy are now available.
We are welcoming the second Royal Queen Store to Amsterdam, a brand store to be precise. If you want to lift yourself into Royal Queen’s heaven where everything for the hobbyist grower is provided, you should definitely visit our store on the Haarlemmerstraat in Amsterdam. You will find everything from seeds, vaporizers, grinders, bongs and the best advice from our well-informed employees.
