Cannabis seed to sale tracking software

Cannabis seed to sale tracking software

Starting a cannabis business is far from easy. Ensuring you’re following compliance rules and avoiding risks, while staying ahead of regulators is not a one-person job, or even a two-person job.

To stay in compliance, government regulations require you to track and report all of the activities of your operation, from initial plant to final sold product. That’s where seed to sale tracking comes in. Seed to sale is the lifecycle of the marijuana plant from the time the plant is planted until the final product is packaged and sold to the customer. Visually speaking, it starts with growing the plant, harvesting it, lab testing it, processing it, and packaging it, until it ultimately reaches the consumer.

To ensure compliance, seed to sale tracking guarantees every gram of cannabis stays legal throughout its lifecycle. This assists state and local governments by enforcing regulations, collecting taxes, and preventing illegal cannabis from sneaking into the supply.

When you add up all the plant life-cycle stages, plant processing, testing, selling to retailers and then to the end user, you could be talking hundreds of data points to report.

It’s time for some technology

Seed to sale software is a digital inventory control system that state regulators use in marijuana programs to track the cultivation, processing, and sales of cannabis to consumers. With seed to sale software, data is sent in real-time to the state compliance systems or the software generates the reports you need to send into the government to stay compliant. This helps manufacturers track their inventory and manage production, all while staying legally compliant.

The benefits of using seed to sale software

Whether you’re a grower or a manufacturer, there are multiple benefits of using seed to sale software for your cannabis business:

  • Legal compliance: Most importantly, it ensures your business remains compliant — giving you peace of mind that you’re following state regulations across all areas of your business.
  • No more manual tracking: Seed to sale software systems with intuitive visual workflows save you time and effort, which ultimately, leads to more money saved. Digital inventory tools also let you leave the days of manually updating excel documents or tracking paper inventory sheets long behind you.
  • Invoicing makes order fulfillment simple: These software systems can also help manufacturers save time on order fulfillment processes with automatic pull sheets and invoicing features. Many seed to sale softwares also integrate with other business softwares you already use, like QuickBooks.

Many states continue to debate and vote on cannabis legalization, which means this is only the start of the cannabis boom. To stay ahead of the game, you need to choose the right seed to sale tracking software for you and your cannabis business.

Seed to Sale Tracking: Why it’s Crucial

One of the great benefits of legal, regulated cannabis sales is that consumers are buying tested, quality products and trust what they’re putting into their bodies. This is essential for increasing the number of cannabis consumers which is good for all cultivators, manufacturers, dispensary owners, and everyone else connected to the modern cannabis marketplace. Seed to sale tracking means exactly what it says; cannabis plants are tracked from seeds through planting, harvesting/curing, manufacturing, testing, and packaging before they’re sold in a licensed cannabis dispensary.

So why should you care about seed to sale tracking? For consumers, their health, wellness, and confidence depend on it. For cannabis professionals, cloud-based seed to sale tracking provides much-needed compliance tools and optimal data for improved cultivation techniques and profits. For cannabis regulators, tracking allows for monitoring every cannabis product at each stage of the supply chain through the final sale. To sum it up, everybody wins.

The Legal Cannabis Marketplace Needs Seed to Sale Software

To date, 33 states, Washington, D.C., and several U.S territories permit medical cannabis, and 11 allow for adult-use sales with more likely on the way in 2020. While laws and regulations vary from state to state, nearly all require compliance with seed to sale tracking and testing regulations. This is why cloud-based, seed to sale tracking software for cultivators is a fundamental part of the new cannabis marketplace.

Without it, compliance is next to impossible. With BLAZE Grow, not only is compliance possible, our platform makes it practically easy.

How Does Seed to Sale Tracking Work?

You might be wondering how a company can track a seed or young plant (typically a clone from a mother plant). The answer is simple; labels or tags with identifying barcodes or QR codes are placed on the containers containing the seeds. Most commercial growers rely on clones, not seeds when planting their crops. As the plant matures, a tag may be hung on the plant itself and some states mandate this step. For indoor grows, many states require tracking the plant even when moved from room to room during the growth cycle. Mobile scanning/reading devices are commonly used by employees in the field or indoor cultivation or manufacturing facilities. For its clients, BLAZE offers the rugged and dependable Durascan portable device for scanning barcodes. The label or tag with the barcode or QR code then follows the plant through the entire supply chain. If the harvested plant is processed into vape oil, a tincture, an edible, a topical, or other cannabis product, the code stays with it to ensure the tracking chain remains unbroken.

Manage Cultivation and Sales

It’s the Law in Most States

Government regulators require tracking software to eradicate illicit cannabis sales and “grey market,” off the book sales. While regulations are certainly an unwelcome challenge for a business model that was previously based on secrecy and independence, they are necessary to integrate the cannabis marketplace into mainstream business communities. Virtually every commercial product sold in the U.S must deal with regulatory issues and cannabis is no exception. Without a doubt, changes need to evolve over time as regulators and business professionals alike find their way in the new cannabis landscape. Tracking software helps cannabis cultivators stay compliant with state law, and may help keep federal agencies at bay from enforcement actions. The data may also play a role in the eventual de-scheduling of cannabis at the federal level.

Dispensaries Will Love You

Tracking data is of immense value to dispensaries. Up to date inventory management, customer trends, and marketing strategies are critical to managing a dispensary. Savvy owners will want to make use of any data that helps them improve sales and educate customers. In many ways, cannabis data management is BLAZING new paths for supply chain management in other industries, and we’re proud to be at the forefront of that effort.

Does Seed to Sale Tracking Protect Consumers?

Illicit cannabis producers and sellers do not care or abide by tracking or testing regulations. While consumers may save money buying underground cannabis, the recent vape crisis is a perfect example of the potential health risks. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the untested, underground, and illegal counterfeit vape products contained Vitamin E acetate which severely damages the lungs when heated and inhaled. Legal vape sales plummeted and hopefully will recover in 2020. People died, and the untracked, illegal products gave the entire cannabis community a black eye. Unfortunately, the incidents also provided ammunition for prohibition supporters. The seed to sale tracking ecosphere greatly reduces the risk of contaminated products from ever reaching the consumer. This is just one more reason why you should care about seed to sale tracking ⎼ your livelihood may very well depend on it.

Seed-to-sale Tracking

Seed-to-sale Tracking is a rigorous inventory control system that tracks the cultivation, processing, and sales of cannabis and cannabis-infused products to consumers and Registered Qualifying Patients.

As the Commission continues to implement regulatory changes that were promulgated in January 2021, information contained on these webpages may require updates and/or verification by applicants and licensees in order to maintain compliance. Thank you for your understanding.

All licensed Marijuana Establishments (MEs) and Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MTCs) are required to maintain a Seed-to-sale Tracking System.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts employs Metrc, a web-based marijuana inventory system that uses radio frequency identification technology and serialized plant and package tags to follow marijuana from seed to point of sale.

Guidance for cultivators on how to manage inventory with Metrc.

Are additives required to be entered in Metrc?

No, during cultivation, additives are not required to be tracked in the state’s Seed-to-sale Tracking System, Metrc. Cultivators may input additives into Metrc to track growing processes. A Licensee cannot edit or delete an additive once it has been entered.

How many tags do I need to order for plants and packages?

The number of tags you order is a business decision; however, you are responsible for having a sufficient stock of tags at all times for daily inventory reconciliation and tracking. A Licensee can order a maximum of 5,000 tags per order.

Immature Plants

Can I transfer seeds or clones to another license?

Yes, seeds and clones that are under eight inches can be transferred to a different license. Once a plant is tagged in Metrc, it must remain under that license.

Can I bring in New Genetic Material that is outside of Metrc?

Yes, please contact your Investigator or Compliance Officer.

How does a Licensee add their inventory to Metrc?

Clones are entered as strain-specific immature batches. There is a maximum clone count of 100 clones per batch. The Licensee is required to tag each clone once they are moved to the vegetative stage, usually once clones reach eight inches tall. All clone packages must be strain-specific, and the item name must include clones, for example, Blue Dream Clones.

The Commission strongly recommends Licensees manually enter their inventory into the state’s Seed-to-sale Tracking System. If a Licensee chooses to upload their inventory through their third-party API, they must ensure the figures entered reflect accurate inventory.

If a Licensee chooses this route, the Commission recommends that the Licensee create a master spreadsheet of inventory to keep on file.

How are seeds entered in Metrc?

Harvested seeds: Once seeds are harvested, they must be tracked. Each harvested seed packet cannot contain more than 50 seeds.

Immature seeds : Strain-specific immature seeds will be counted and entered into Metrc unless they are in the process of being planted. Retail licenses can store seed packages as count-based for internal use.

Transferring seeds : When transferring to a retailer, the seeds are physically put into seed lots of six for sale. Licensees may put multiple packets of six under one Metrc tag.

How does a facility track the chain of custody for clones and seeds?

Strain-specific clone and seed packages are transferred using a transfer manifest in Metrc. The Licensee will select the tab “create plantings” from each of the strain-specific package tags. This will create a new strain-specific immature planting. The same “create plantings” tab is available under both the vegetative and flowering tabs for seeds or cuttings generated from tagged plants.

How do I enter strain-specific immature batches if I do not know what the strain is?

A Licensee is required to enter the strain name.

Flowering Plants

If a Licensee enters the incorrect wet weight for a plant, are they required to destroy their harvest batch?

No, a Licensee that enters the incorrect wet weight for a plant is not required to destroy the harvest. Licensees have 48 hours after the entry to contact Metrc Support to request a correction. If not corrected within 48 hours, Licensees should complete an incident report and document a plan of correction. Licensees are not allowed to average the wet weights of plants in their harvest batches.

When plants are entered in Metrc, should they be weighed individually or in bulk and then averaged?

Plants must be weighed individually when entered in Metrc. Licensees are not allowed to average weights of plants.

How does a Licensee make its test packages?

For cured and dried flower, test packages are made from each strain-specific post-harvest batch after trimming and drying. Post-harvest batches are limited to 15 pounds of dry weight flower, shake, or trim.

For wet processing, test packages are made from each strain-specific post-harvest batch. Post-harvest batches are limited to 15 pounds and must be tested for pesticides.

When making a test sample, all associated package tags must be selected in the creation of the Metrc test sample package.

How should waste be tracked in Metrc?

Waste should be reported in Metrc either by room or by plant tag. A Licensee may have multiple entries of waste, but all waste must be accounted for by the end of the business day.

Can a Licensee wait to create their harvest batch until the entire strain is harvested, which might take several days?

No, at the end of day physical inventory must match Metrc. For example, if a Licensee is harvesting a strain that takes two days to complete, the Licensees would create a batch each day for what is harvested.

Is it a requirement that Licensees enter the strain name as the harvest batch name?

Yes, Licensees should include the strain name and date of harvest in the harvest batch name.

Is there a maximum amount of plants in a harvest batch?

No, there is no maximum amount of plants in a harvest batch. Any product harvested throughout the day must match the end-of-day inventory in Metrc.

Post-harvest batches, i.e., cured and dried flower, are limited to 15 pounds per batch.

Guidance for product manufacturers on how to manage inventory with Metrc.

During the product manufacturing stages, when is it required to assign a production batch number?

If a product is physically or chemically altered, a new production batch number must be assigned.

Whenever a new product is created for the purpose of selling to the general public, or for the purpose of adding to a product which will be sold to the general public, that product must be tracked in Metrc.

When does the separation of Medical versus Adult Use products occur?

If potency levels allow the product to be sold to either medical patients or adult consumers, the separation must be demonstrated at the point of sale.

Are additives required to be entered into Metrc?

Yes, product manufacturing additives, including THC and CBD potency, serving size, and ingredients, are required.

The Commission will allow for a transition period for compliance. Additional information will be provided through the issuance of a bulletin.

Is there a limit to how much product can be assigned to a Metrc tag ?

Yes, no more than three liftable containers, each not heavier than 50 pounds, per Metrc tag. Once assigned a Metrc tag, these containers cannot be separated. We strongly suggest keeping all inventory in one contained location for the purpose of inventory tracking.

Additionally, multiple containers containing one package (termed 1 lot) must travel together. For example, if one container is needed in product manufacturing, then the other two must go with it.

If lots are separated, either within or outside a facility and are assigned to one tag, Licensees will be in violation of the Commission’s Seed-to-sale Tracking guidance.

This section provides guidance to retailers on how to manage inventory with Metrc.

When does the separation of Medical versus Adult Use products occur?

If during production the potency of the product exceeds the allowable limit for adult use, the product must be separated at that stage. If potency levels allow the product to be sold to either medical patients or adult consumers, the separation must be demonstrated at the point of sale.

All sales must be recorded under the appropriate license in Metrc. This ensures that medical patients remain exempt from paying sales’ tax on products, and appropriate sales data is aggregated under the applicable license.

How should display products be tracked in Metrc?

Display products should have their own separate Metrc package tag, created from the parent package.

These tags can be kept in a contained location in a secured area. Display products do not require tags to be physically displayed on the product. Once the product is wasted, this package tag will also allow transportation of this product to a processor for disposal, if the waste disposal process does not occur at the retail.

How do retailers enter their sales into Metrc?

Retailers can utilize an API, CSV file, or manual upload. Retails should contact their point of sale provider for the functionality.

How does an MTC perform a patient return or exchange in Metrc?

Any patient return cannot be resold and must be wasted.

A new package tag is created with the item category name “waste – concentrate” or “waste – flower.” Creating this category requires Commission approval. Contact the Commission in this situation.

A new waste log feature is in development for accepting and wasting returned products. Once this feature is complete, further industry guidance may be released in the form of a Metrc bulletin.

How do I perform home delivery to Registered Qualifying Patients?

Delivery to Registered Qualifying Patients may be tracked using the sales delivery feature. At this time, the sales delivery feature is currently activated for Medical Use Licensees only.

Can a Licensee sell seeds and clones?

Commission regulations allow for the ability to sell seeds and clones; however, guidance on testing, packaging, and clone limits are to be developed.

Can Licensees list multiple occupants on a manifest?

Yes, include the names and badge or registration card number of all registered agents transporting products on the manifest. All occupants must be entered in the space provided, separated with either a comma or slash. Licensees must include the travel route. If changing drivers in route, identify the location of the change in the planned route section.

When a Licensee is transferring product to another Licensee, what transfer type do they select on the manifest?

If the Licensees are not affiliated through licensure, then it will be an “unaffiliated transfer.”

When a Licensee does an affiliated transfer within the same facility, does there need to be a physical paper manifest?

No, if the movement is within the same physical space a paper manifest is not necessary. Any movement between separate physical locations requires a paper manifest.

Can a Licensee send whole wet plants to another Licensee to dry, cure and package into bud and trim packages and test on their behalf?

No, cultivators cannot send wet plants to another Licensee to dry. However, cultivators may send wet plant material that has been tested in accordance with the Commission testing protocol, to another facility for extractions.

Additional information will be provided through the issuance of a bulletin.

How do we create sample packages?

All sample packages should have an assigned package tag; specific name denoting it is a sample or research and development (R&D) item (e.g., “R&D: UniqueName”); and proper testing status prior to transfer. Samples and R&D packages cannot be sold.

How do retailers edit their sales if their file was uploaded twice, sold from the incorrect package ID, or need to delete a sale if receipt based?

The retailer will be required to void or edit each receipt number individually upon notification of the issue and reconcile the void in Metrc and point-of-sale system within 24 hours.

Can retailers create gift box package tags?

No, retailers are not allowed to create gift box package tags.

Can a Licensee transfer or receive a product that has not been tested?

No, a Licensee may only transfer cannabis products that have test results. This requirement includes transfers between licenses.

Healthy cannabis seed tips

12 Tips for Sprouting Cannabis Seeds

Every tiny cannabis seed represents a potential pound of cannabis flower. It’s crazy to think that so much abundance springs forth from such a small thing. If you’re looking to grow cannabis plants this summer, get started now with a visit to KindPeoples’ award-winning Genetics Department, where you can browse hundreds of strains in seed and clone form and pick the perfect plant to grow.

Once you’ve found the plants you’re looking for, getting started with growing cannabis is easy.

Simply follow these basic tips for germinating your seeds and planting them in soil.
  1. Look for viable, plump seeds with a telltale “tiger stripe” on the side that indicates maturity. Larger seeds tend to yield more vigorous and hardy plants.

The most common reason for lack of germination is overwatering. Don’t let your seeds get too wet or they can drown, and don’t soak for too long or they will begin to rot. If the seeds haven’t sprouted after 48 hours, let them go another day, but after 5 days the seed is most likely dead.

How to care for your cannabis seedling

When you’re growing cannabis, you want to keep your plants strong and healthy through every stage of the growing process — and that includes the seedling stage.

The seedling stage can be an especially vulnerable time in the growing process. The cannabis seedling is in need of a lot of TLC to grow into a healthy cannabis plant.

But what does that TLC look like? What steps do you need to take to support your cannabis seedlings through the seedling stage and as they grow into mature marijuana plants?

Let’s take a deep dive into how to care for your baby marijuana plant so you know exactly how to take care of your growing seedling and make sure it grows into a healthy, mature cannabis plant.

What happens during the seedling stage?

Before we jump into how to care for your cannabis seedling, let’s quickly cover what happens during this grow stage.

The growing process has four key stages: the seed germination stage, the seedling stage, the vegetative stage, and the flowering stage. Once the cannabis seeds germinate and are placed into their growing medium (like a potting mix), they start to root into the soil as the stem grows upward, sprouting two cotyledon leaves, which help the plant absorb light and continue to grow.

As the plant grows, it starts to produce more fan leaves — and those leaves continue to develop the ridged edges that you’ll immediately recognize as the marijuana plant. As more leaves grow, more ridged edges develop until finally, the plant is fully grown with each leaf reaching its maximum number of edges (which can be anywhere from 5 ridges per leaf to upwards of 10).

This stage — moving from germinated cannabis seeds to cannabis plants with the maximum number of ridged edges per leaf — is the seedling stage.

The seedling stage is an incredibly important part of the growing process; because the cannabis plant is still young and fragile, proper care is essential if you want to lay the foundation for a healthy mature plant.

But what does that care look like? What are the key things to know when it comes to how to take care of marijuana seedlings?

Choose the right container

Your cannabis seedling needs space to grow. But too much space and too little space can both create problems for your plant.

If you try to grow your seedling in a container that’s too large, the root system won’t be able to absorb all the water in the soil. If you start growing your seedling in a container that’s too small, the roots won’t have space to extend and will start to wrap around themselves, which will also impact their ability to absorb water.

Choosing the right pot is an essential part of caring for your growing plant. You need a pot that’s going to give the root system space to grow, but not so much space that the roots won’t be able to absorb all the water in the soil. You should also make sure the pot has drainage holes to get rid of any excess water that could overwhelm the plant.

Be mindful of how much you water your cannabis seedlings

When it comes to watering your seedlings, you want to give them the water they need to thrive. But too much water can actually have a negative impact on the growth process, so it’s important to be mindful of how much you water your seedlings.

The root system of a seedling isn’t elaborate; the roots are small and don’t need much water to grow. Misting the plants with water once or twice a day should be plenty to give them the hydration they need to grow.

If you’re not sure how much water is too much water, keep in mind that you want the growing medium (AKA the soil) to be damp and moist — not soaked and oversaturated.

Know the signs of nutrient deficiencies

A nutrient deficiency can cause serious issues for your growing plant, so part of proper care is knowing how to spot the signs of a nutrient deficiency.

Nutrient deficiencies can come from a variety of places. “Hot” potting mixes that contain too many nutrients could cause nutrient toxicity. On the other end of the spectrum, under-watering can cause a deficiency in the key nutrients your plant needs to grow.

Some red flags that signal your seedling may have a deficiency in nutrients (or nutrient toxicity) include:

  • Dark coloring (cannabis seedlings should be a vibrant shade of green)
  • A burned appearance on the tip of the leaves
  • A curling on the tip of the leaves
  • Yellowing leaves

If you notice any of these issues with your plant, it could be the result of too many or too few nutrients. You’ll need to adjust your growing strategy to support your plant’s health.

Choose the right lighting

Like any plant, seedlings need light in order to grow and thrive. But not all light is created equal. If you want your seedling to grow into a healthy cannabis plant, you need to expose it to the right type of light.

If you’re growing your seedlings outdoors, they’ll need to be exposed to as much sunlight as possible. Keep them in the sun from sunrise to sunset; the more sunlight exposure they get, the better.

But growing your seedlings outdoors can be tricky. Because you can’t control sunlight, there’s no way to ensure your cannabis seedlings are getting the light they need to grow properly. A cloudy day can prevent your seedlings from getting enough light and throw off your entire growth process.

Growing your seedlings indoors with artificial light gives you more control over the process, making it easier to ensure your plants are getting enough light each day. If you’re growing with artificial lights (compact fluorescent lights that emit cooler, blue spectrum light are especially effective), aim to give your plants 18 hours on and six hours off each day.

Keep your environment at the right temperature and humidity

Environmental conditions are essential to growing healthy cannabis seedlings, and some of the most important conditions to control are temperature and humidity.

The temperature in your grow environment shouldn’t exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit, otherwise the seedlings may grow too tall. (You should also plan on lowering the temperature at night to about 70 degrees Fahrenheit.)

You should also aim to keep humidity in the grow environment at a higher level, typically around 70 percent. That way, the plants can absorb moisture from the environment to develop stronger roots without getting weighed down by over-watering.

Get out there and grow your seedling into a full-grown marijuana plant

Watching your cannabis seeds transform into seedlings is an exciting part of the growth process. And now that you know how to care for your cannabis seedling, you should have everything you need to transform your seedling into a mature, healthy, and flowering cannabis plant.

Personal Use of Cannabis in Illinois

Cannabis is a fast growing business fraught with regulatory hurdles and cut throat competition – the right cannabis attorney can help your cannabis business

What do the new Illinois weed laws say about the personal use of cannabis in Illinois?

A new law legalizing the use of recreational marijuana is was passed in Illinois on May 31, 2019. The state beaome the 11th in the country to allow the use of recreational marijuana, but the first state to legalize cannabis by legislative process.

According to this new cannabis law, “the General Assembly finds and declares that the use of cannabis should be legal for persons 21 years of age or older.”

Illinois Weed Laws

Below we discuss the new Illinois Weed Laws that are now in effective from January 1, 2020, and onwards. Remember that cannbis laws evolve fast, so always check back in for the most current cannabis laws in Illinois.

Illinois Has No Marijuana Laws

Illinois replaced the term “marijuana” with its biological name, Cannabis, many years ago. Even during prohibition, Illinois referred to marijuana as cannabis. That continues today with the new Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act.

Who is allowed to Sell Cannabis?

In the beginning, only licensed dispensaries will be allowed to sell medical marijuana when the bill becomes law in January 2020. More licenses will be granted to other stores by the middle of the year.

Already, there are a good number of dispensaries in different parts of the state. By the start of 2020, it is predicted that close to 300 stores will be selling marijuana.

However, it will still be up to the municipal and county government to decide whether marijuana sellers can operate in their areas of jurisdiction.

Where can you Smoke Cannabis?

According to the new law, cannabis smoking will be allowed at home and within the marijuana sellers’ premises. However, smoking will be prohibited in the following areas:

  • Public areas, such as streets and parks
  • In motor vehicles whether personal or otherwise
  • Near police offices, or close to school bus drivers who are still on duty
  • Within a school setting. However, exemptions are made for the case of medical marijuana
  • Close to anyone who is under the age of 21

While smoking marijuana at the confines of your home is allowed, property owners have a right to prohibit the same within their premises. Colleges and universities will also be allowed to prohibit weed smoking within the institutions.

Amount of Weed One Can Possess

According to the law, residents of Illinois will be allowed to possess 30 grams of cannabis flower, 5 grams of cannabis concentrate, and 500 milligrams of cannabis infused products. Cannabis infused products include tinctures and edibles.


A sales tax will be applied for all marijuana products. For instance, products whose THC is less than 35% will have a sales tax of 10%. Edibles and any cannabis infused products will be taxed at 20%. Products with a THC concentration of over 35% will have a sales tax of approximately 25%.

Aside from the sales tax, a 7% gross tax will be imposed on marijuana sold by growers to dispensaries. It is highly likely that, at the end of the day, this cost will be passed to the consumer.

Where Will the Cannabis for Sale Come From?

Currently, there are 20 marijuana cultivation facilities in Illinois. At the beginning of January 2020, these will be the only facilities that will be allowed to grow marijuana. Within the year, craft growers interested in growing marijuana will be allowed to submit their license applications. Licenses will be given to facilities that can grow up to 5000 square feet of weed.

How many plants can you grow in Illinois?

  • Marijuana cultivation will be legal for those who take marijuana for medical purposes.
  • These patients will be permitted to grow 5 marijuana plants at any given time.
  • On the other hand, recreational marijuana users will not be allowed to plant marijuana in their homes.
  • Doing so will attract a civil penalty fine of $200.

Who is Allowed to Grow Cannabis in Illinois

If you are registered under the compassionate use of medical cannabis program, and are within the age limit set by the law, you are legible to grow marijuana. You also need to be a resident of this state to be allowed to grow weed at home. According to this law, a resident is “A person who is domiciled in the state for 30 days.”

If you grow marijuana, you have to tend for the plants. You can have an agent do this for you for a short duration when you are away. That said, the plants should not be accessed or used by other unauthorized people.

Home Growing Cannabis in Illinois?

According to the law, marijuana plants will have to be grown in an enclosed and locked-up place. This will ensure that the plants cannot be accessed by unauthorized persons. It will be illegal to grow the plants in a place where the public can easily access.

Additionally, anyone who is registered to grow the cannabis plant is prohibited from giving the plant or any cannabis-infused product to neighbors, friends, or any other person for that matter. Doing this will not only attract a penalty, but will also lead to revocation of the home growing right.

Where to Get Cannabis Seeds?

Marijuana seeds will be offered in different dispensaries licensed to sell marijuana products. It will be illegal to buy seeds on behalf of another person. Only those who are registered under compassionate use will be allowed to buy seeds and grow the cannabis plants without a license.

Cannabis Use and Possession by People Under Age 21

According to the new law, possession of cannabis by anyone below the age of 21 will be a criminal offense. Punishment for such offenses will depend on the circumstances at hand, and may include:

  • Revocation of driving license if the person is driving a vehicle at the time they committed the offense
  • Fine of not less than $500 if a parent or guardian allows anyone below the age limit to use marijuana
  • Jail term if there are other crimes that have been committed while under the influence of marijuana

While you will be required to produce identification documents to verify your age when buying marijuana products, your personal information will be protected for privacy purposes. The sellers will not be required to record your personal information. If they do, they will need to first get your consent.

Once this bill becomes law, those who want to take marijuana for recreational or medical purposes will have an easier time getting the marijuana products they need. They will also get value for their money because all business transactions will be done in accordance with the law.

However, those who are below the age of 21 must keep off from using or possessing marijuana, and any of its associated products because this can land them in trouble with law enforcement officers.

Cannabis in Illinois – Laws, Use, and History

In 2019, Illinois became the eleventh US state to legalise recreational cannabis use. As of 2020, individuals can possess up to 30 grams of cannabis flowers, which can be purchased from licenced vendors and dispensaries. Cannabis cultivation is still illegal though, unless it’s for medicinal purposes, and the grower has a Medical Marijuana card.

    Cannabis laws in Illinois

    The US is governed by federal and state laws. This article covers the cannabis laws in the state of Illinois. For US federal laws, please visit this page.

    Can you possess and use cannabis in Illinois?

    In June 2019, Illinois’ Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker signed the bill to legalise recreational cannabis in the state. This makes Illinois the eleventh state in the US to do so. They are also the US’s first state to legalise recreational cannabis through its legislature.

    The legalization came into effect on January 1 st , 2020, and all adults aged 21 and older may purchase recreational cannabis from licensed retailers in Illinois. The bill states:

    • A medical cannabis card won’t be required to purchase it.
    • Using cannabis is permitted in the individual’s home, or on-site in approved cannabis-related premises.
    • Use is forbidden in any public place, in a motor vehicle, or on the grounds of an educational establishment. Students with medical marijuana cards may continue to use the drug at school, as per their physician’s guidelines.
    • Cannabis use is also forbidden near anyone under the age of 21.
    • It’s also forbidden near a police officer, firefighter, corrections officer, or on-duty school bus driver.

    Purchase and possession limits for recreational cannabis are slightly different for Illinois residents and non-residents:

    • For instate residents, 30 grams of cannabis flower, 5 grams of concentrates, or 500 mg of cannabis-infused edibles, can be purchased.
    • Non-residents can purchase 15 grams of cannabis flower, 2.5 grams of concentrate, or 250 mg of cannabis-infused products.
    Cannabis taxes

    Illinois’ government has proposed tax rates on cannabis purchases. For cannabis flowers or other products containing under 35% of THC, there will be a 10% sales tax. Products infused with cannabis (such as tinctures or edibles) will have a 20% tax. Any other cannabis product with THC levels of over 35% will come with a 25% tax. Individual counties and cities in Illinois may also add extra local sales taxes.

    The legislation proposes that the tax revenue will be used to regenerate poorer communities. When speaking about the changes to the law, Gov. Pritzker commented: “Legalising adult-use cannabis brings an important and overdue change to our state, and it’s the right thing to do.”

    Existing criminal records for cannabis possession

    In addition to legalising recreational cannabis, the new law may also expunge cannabis-possession criminal records for 800,000 people in the state.

    Anyone with an existing conviction for possessing under 30 grams of cannabis will have their records sent to a Prisoner Review Board. Once reviewed, they’ll be passed on to Gov. J.B. Pritzker for a pardon. Providing the offences aren’t connected with a violent crime, the record will be expunged.

    Can you sell cannabis in Illinois?

    Previously, only patients holding a valid Medical Cannabis card could purchase medicinal cannabis in Illinois. On June 25, 2019, Illinois made history by becoming the 11th state to legalize recreational cannabis. Since the 1 st of January, 2020, adults aged 21 and older may purchase recreational cannabis from licensed retailers in Illinois.

    Indeed, the early signs are promising. In September 2020, recreational cannabis sales hit a record high, with close to $64 million worth of the drug being sold in the previous month alone. In 2020, total sales reached $1.03 billion, including $669 million in recreational cannabis and more than $366 million in medicinal purchases.

    In May 2021, according to the state of Illinois, throughout the 110 licensed dispensaries, over 2.5 million cannabis products were sold. State residents accounted for approximately $80 million, and sales increased from out of state residents who spent close to $37 million on cannabis related products.

    MJBizDaily estimates that as many as 295 stores could be up and running by 2022, which would be 2.3 stores per 100,000 residents.

    Kris Krane, one of the founders and president of 4Front Holdings, commented: “It’s a state of 13 million people with a very large tourist population in the Chicago area, so I think the business opportunities are huge.”

    Can you grow cannabis in Illinois?

    Unlike other US states that have legalised recreational cannabis, Illinois will not be legalising personal cannabis cultivation. It will remain illegal to grow cannabis plants at home (even in limited numbers), unless the grower is a medicinal cannabis patient. If the individual has a Medical Marijuana card, they can grow up to five plants at a time.

    If caught cultivating up to five cannabis plants at home (without a medical ID card), the offender will be given a civil penalty of $200. Growing five to 20 plants is regarded as a felony, and is punishable with a one to six-year prison sentence, plus a fine of $25,000. 20 to 50 plants can result in a prison term of two to 10 years, and the same fine, and if caught growing 50 to 200 plants, the prison sentence is raised to three to 14 years, and a $100,000 fine. Over 200 plants will result in a four to 30-year prison term, plus a $100,000 fine.

    Licenced cultivation

    From the start of 2020, licences will be gradually issued to companies in the state. These will be ‘craft growers’, who can apply for licences to cultivate as much as 5,000 square feet of cannabis crops.

    Is CBD legal in Illinois?

    The law is slightly ambiguous when it comes to CBD products. In Illinois, CBD is technically legal, as the state’s Cannabis Control Act (which set up a hemp research pilot programme) permitted the cultivation of industrial hemp. The federal Farm Bill also made hemp cultivation legal across the country.

    As such, CBD products are widely sold in Illinois, and can be legally purchased and used, but there are certain ‘grey areas’, particularly regarding CBD-infused edibles.

    Can cannabis seeds be sent to Illinois?

    Cannabis seeds can be legally purchased and sold in the state. However, they must be ungerminated, as cultivation is still illegal. Sending cannabis seeds through the post can also be legally problematic (especially if the package passes through other states where the seeds are banned). Anecdotal reports claim that some seed parcels have been held at customs.

    Medicinal cannabis in Illinois

    Surprisingly, Illinois could have been one of the US’s first states to legalise medicinal cannabis use. In 1978, it passed the Cannabis Control Act, but in order for the law to fully come into force, the Human Services department and the State Police needed to take action. Neither did so, which meant that medicinal cannabis didn’t become legal until many years later.

    In 2013, the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act was passed. This legalised medicinal cannabis use, but only in extremely tightly controlled circumstances. The programme was signed into law in the same year, making Illinois the 20 th state to legalise cannabis for medicinal purposes.

    Recognised conditions

    Illinois has a long list of health conditions that have been approved for medicinal cannabis treatment. These include:

    In order to qualify for medicinal cannabis treatment in Illinois, the patient must be over 18 (or if a minor, must have an adult caregiver and certification from two physicians). They must also be a resident of the state and must have been formally diagnosed with one of the listed conditions.

    Industrial hemp in Illinois

    After the Farm Bill was passed at federal level (legalising hemp cultivation), the US states swiftly began to pass state laws, permitting farmers to grow hemp in their region.

    Gov. J.B. Pritzker, together with Illinois Department of Agriculture, opened up licencing in April 2019. In the first two days, 350 applications had been received, from farmers and processors wanting to start planting the crop.

    “Industrial hemp is a potentially billion-dollar industry that Illinois will now take part in,” Pritzker commented. “This will have a massive impact on our state’s economy.”

    Good to know

    If you are travelling to Illinois (or currently live there), you may be interested to know the following:

    • Illinois’ medicinal cannabis programme has proven to be lucrative for the state. In 2018, dispensary sales generated $133 million, and patient enrolment rose by 66%.
    • In Chicago, 74% of citizens supported the legalisation of recreational cannabis.
    • In September 2019, Chicago hosts its first industrial cannabis expo.

    Cannabis history

    In 1931, Illinois was one of the earlier US states to ban recreational cannabis use; six years before the national prohibition law was passed. This anti-cannabis stance was maintained for several decades, though the rise of hippy culture in the 1960s challenged the status quo.

    The situation started to change in 1978, when the state passed the Cannabis Control Act. This sought to legalise medical cannabis use, providing the State Police and Department of Human Services created the necessary drug policies to manage the new law. Neither department did so, and as such, the Cannabis Control Act never came into action.

    In 2013, Illinois became the 20 th state in the country to legalise medicinal cannabis use. Then, in 2019, it became the eleventh state to legalise recreational use too.

    Attitudes towards cannabis

    Attitudes towards cannabis in Illinois are relatively positive. In a recent study, 74.4% of people expressed support for legalising recreational cannabis, with only 21% opposing it. In the 35 and under age group, 83% supported it. Although the age group with the least support was 66 years and over, they still demonstrated majority support – 51%.

    The Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act states that “adult registered qualifying patients MAY purchase cannabis seeds from a dispensary for the purpose of home cultivation. Seeds may not be given or sold to any other person.”

Golden panda seeds

Golden Penda

Golden penda (Xanthostemon chrysanthus) is a fabulous rainforest tree that thrives in sub-tropical and warm temperate conditions. It’s an Australian native that is related to eucalypts and bottlebrushes and produces masses of amazing yellow flowers in summer and autumn.

In a rainforest the golden penda will grow 10-15 metres tall but in a garden where it doesn’t have to compete for light it’ll stop at around 7 metres. If you haven’t got that much room the good news is it can be pruned or restricted by growing in a large container. There’s also a smaller growing variety called ‘Little Penda that only reaches 2-4 metres.

Golden pendas are fast growers when grown in ideal conditions and make terrific screens or windbreaks. They also attract birds, bees and butterflies to your garden when in flower so you won’t be disappointed!

How To Grow A Golden Penda
Choose a sunny position and ensure the soil has good drainage. Improve the soil with compost and an organic pelletised fertilizer. The more organic matter in your soil the better it will perform. Generally it’s best to avoid planting into heavy clay soils. Apply some gypsum to the soil before planting if you have any concerns.

Once planted, water in with OCP eco-seaweed and mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and keep the weeds down. Like most rainforest plants, golden pendas require regular moisture in order to thrive.

Golden Panda is an excellent strain that offers me a creative social high followed by some of the most epic munchies iv ever experienced. With smooth buttery undertones hints of pine and bright green sugar covered buds this is definitively a unique strain that offers allot of stress relief. – DJ

Most recent

Frances H. Hubbard from Sevilla

I bought a half ounce of this stuff recently. It’s a change from the usual Blue Dream or Skywalker, but a good change. Strong mind high with minimal tiredness and laziness often associated with the Indica side of hybrids. I would definitely recommend it.

Cannabis seed exchange

The Great Commonwealth Cannabis Seed Share

Thursday, July 1, 2021 marks the first day of cannabis legalization in the Commonwealth of Virginia. In honor of this momentous occasion, VAMJ is hosting “The Great Commonwealth Cannabis Seed Share” to facilitate personal home cultivation of cannabis permitted under the new law. This will be Virginia residents’ first legal opportunity to share seeds with other adults and start down the path of legally growing their own cannabis in the safety and privacy of their homes. This event will be hosted in several locations throughout the state.

Are you looking for seeds? Can you donate seeds? Or could you allow your home to be used on this historic day? Please sign up here!

We are extremely excited about Day 1 of legalization! We have waited our entire lives for the law to change and we are about to make history together. There is still a lot of work to be done before marijuana justice is fully realized– from freeing pot prisoners to expanding home grow rights to ensuring Virginia’s adult-use industry is not comprised of a bunch of rich white guys with deep pockets who don’t care about cannabis culture to supporting and empowering our BIPOC brothers and sisters who have been most harmed by Virginia’s war on cannabis. Legalization is only beginning and tomorrow we can finally celebrate.

We started planning this a few months ago, but it was only in the last couple weeks that the general public found out about our endeavor. If we had more time and more donors, we would have more areas of Virginia covered. Everyone working on this has volunteered their time, so please understand we are doing our best.

So far we have received over 15,000 seeds from numerous donors. 95% of the bags & tubes contain 6 seeds each. A few bags contain 3 or 4 seeds. Our aim is to give everyone at least 6 seeds tomorrow.

But as we mentioned before, registration does not guarantee you seeds. Over 4,000 people have registered and we expect to run out in some locations. The seeds will be given out on a first come, first served basis. Hopefully, some of you will grow a male and female plant and be able to harvest seeds for the next seed give away. It’s only through the generosity of the cannabis community is this even possible!


YOU MUST BRING YOUR ID. No seeds will be given out to individuals under 21 years of age. Make sure your ID is not expired. No ID, no seeds. Period.

NO SALES. The seeds are not for sale. We are not taking cash for the seeds or requiring anything of value in exchange for the seeds. THEY ARE A GIFT. Please do not bring cannabis to sell to people.

NO CONSUMPTION OF CANNABIS – Do not consume cannabis while in line. Public use of cannabis is not allowed. Do not get arrested on the first day of legalization!

BE RESPECTFUL – If you see a senior citizen in line behind you, let them go ahead of you. They have waited longer than you to grow cannabis. You might have to wait in line for a long time, so patience is key and some of us have been really really patient. Get to know people in line. Make friends with them. Exchange contact info because they might have some good growing tips! Wear a mask if you haven’t been vaccinated.

BE RESPECTFUL PART 2 – The venues that are hosting the seed share are doing so out of their own generosity. Be on your best behavior. If we are to do this again, we need to treat the owners and residents of these neighborhoods with the utmost respect.

DON’T FORGET! Bring water, umbrella for shade, a chair, snacks, a good attitude, and your unexpired, government issued ID! We recommend using the bathroom before you leave home so there is not a run on bathrooms.

Managing Expectations

After our friends at DCMJ did their Spring Seed Shares in March 2015, we learned a few important lessons that we’d like to share.

First, the seeds you start out with don’t need to be special, rather they just need to germinate. While the ones we are giving away are all decent seeds, most are not “feminized,” which means you may end up with a male plant. We believe that it is important to learn how to grow the entire cannabis plant and during the first stage of growth, males and females are indistinguishable. While a male plant will not give you smokable buds, you can eat the leaves and still get medicinal benefits. Moreover, if you end up with a male and female, you will never have to worry about finding seeds again because one pollinated female plant will yield thousands of seeds. You can also spray your pollinated buds (which contain baby seeds) with a mist of colloidal silver and make feminized seeds. There are ample videos and tutorials online that can teach you everything you need to know. The seed is only the beginning, so don’t fall for the hype of trying to score name brand seeds if this is your first grow.

Second, your first home grow will probably yield you the most expensive ounce of cannabis you’ve ever paid for. The fresh soil, LED lights, fans, grow bags, fencing, organic nutrients, electricity, water, and your time all combine for the most expensive cannabis you’ve ever purchased. Before you go all out and buy the most expensive equipment to grow the dankest gas this side of the Appalachians, we recommend starting small and slowly getting more equipment as your cultivation skills improve. About 6 months after DCMJ’s 2015 Spring Seed Shares, there was a glut of used grow equipment available for sale. Many cannabis enthusiasts found out that they didn’t have the green thumb or the patience needed to grow cannabis and they gave up. You really only need 4 things to grow cannabis: soil, water, sun, and time. Most forget to water (or over water!) and do not have the patience to tend to their plants every day. By the time some of you figure this out, the dispensaries will be open. There is a learning curve to grow high quality cannabis and the most important thing you can do is be patient and learn what works and what doesn’t work.

Third, VAMJ does not represent the cannabis industry. Rather, we fight the cannabis industry. They have one goal: profit. We have a bigger goal: justice. In every state the cannabis industry operates, they spend millions of dollars fighting consumers (and growers) to ensure the state’s laws & regulations are designed to maximize their profits. While there are some good players, we remain suspicious of most cannabis businesses, especially multi-state operators. We’ve seen too many snake oil salesmen to give our trust freely. The only legit cannabis businesses right now in Virginia, aside from the medical cannabis dispensaries, are the garden supply stores and the cultivation consultants. Garden supply stores will help you get your grow off the ground and you are also supporting a local business instead of Amazon. The cultivation consultant will be the person who trains you how to grow your cannabis by taking their class or they’ll come to your home and help you setup your grow. Be careful if someone promises too much.

Fourth, we believe the cornerstone of marijuana justice is being able to grow your own cannabis. We believe these seeds can be seen as a form of reparations. By being self-sufficient you do not need to worry about when the dispensaries are going to open or if they are using toxic chemicals on a massive spider mite infestation. These free seed will provide important jobs skills to all Virginians. By growing your own, you know exactly what went into your plant and can tell your neighbor when you give them a gram for Christmas. Home growers serve as a counterbalance to the corporate interests. Big Cannabis will not cultivate slow-growing strains because they are not profitable, but you can grow them because you want to. Eventually we want you to be able to sell your extra cannabis at farmer’s markets so that you can make some extra money. The Virginia cannabis cottage industry starts tomorrow. We believe craft cannabis will be a cottage industry and home growers will be at the forefront, but only if we join forces and demand legislators reform the law.

Finally, the fight isn’t over. Just because you can grow your own cannabis, doesn’t mean that the war on drugs is won. We still have a lot of work to do to ensure not only local legalization, but legalization across the country, to benefit all interested parties. There are still friends and family members in jail for cannabis in Virginia. We need to demand their immediate release. The governor can do this TODAY. We need to demand that the cannabis industry in Virginia reflects Virginia. Meaning that the licenses that will be given out in the next few years don’t go to the wealthy, well-connected players, but folks like us, who have been working to reform cannabis laws or have experienced Virginia’s failed War on Drugs first hand.

It’s time to plant the seeds of change!

Best Marijuana Seeds Banks – FAQs

How Can I Buy Marijuana Seeds Online Safely in the US?

If you use one of the best seed banks like ILGM or Seedsman, then your weed seeds get to you in the USA safely with stealth shipping.

Stealth shipping refers to when seeds are packed and concealed in or around random objects like pens, toys, CD cases, and more to avoid unnecessary attention from customs officers or reduce the chance of theft.

Additionally, most seed banks allow you to buy cannabis seeds with Bitcoin. This is perhaps one of the most secure payment methods to keep your financial and personal information private.

With a combination of the best seed banks, stealth shipping, and Bitcoin payments, you can significantly reduce the likelihood that you will be caught shipping weed seeds to the US.

What Seed Banks Ship to the USA?

Seed banks that ship to the USA include ILGM, Seedsman, and Crop King Seeds.

However, ILGM and Crop King Seeds tend to have faster and more affordable US delivery times. Usually, you’ll have your marijuana seeds at your doorstep within a week of ordering.

On top of that, all orders are coupled with a germination guarantee cover and a good chance at getting 10 extra marijuana seeds with your purchases.

Is ILGM a Good Seed Bank?

Yes, I Love Growing Marijuana is a good seed bank and this is because it is suitable for both experienced and new growers.

The seed bank boasts a decent high-quality range of seeds and strains, as well as 200+ informative blogs and articles and even a forum to help growers make informed cannabis seed decisions in the future.

Furthermore, you get 24/7 growth support assistance at your disposal whenever you encounter a problem.

How Can You Tell if a Seed Is Male or Female?

It is almost practically impossible to tell a female or a male marijuana seed just by sight alone. You can tell the sex of a seed by using a lab test or using a plant sex kit to test for the Y chromosome. But as seeds start pre-flowering their visible differences begin to appear. And here are two tips you can use to sex cannabis seeds;

          • Male seeds grow a pollen sack at the branch joints when pre-flowering
          • Male marijuana seeds generally grow much faster
          • Female plants grow light whitish pistillates
          • Female seeds take longer to grow on average

          What’s Better – Autoflower or Feminized Seeds?

          The better seed between autoflower and feminized seeds depends on the preference of the grower.

          Autoflower Seeds

          Generally, autoflower marijuana seeds can grow with little to no supervision, making them ideal for new growers.

          They also grow faster – as fast as 8-10 weeks from germination to maturity. However, they usually have a lower THC potency.
          In other words, you won’t get as high from their buds.

          Feminized Seeds

          On the other hand, Feminized Seeds (if taken care of well) will guarantee high THC or CBD buds during harvest.

          However, they take a few weeks longer to mature and will need some higher level of expertise in marijuana growing since they are prone to diseases.

          Conclusion – What Are the Best Seed Banks in 2021?

          Different seed banks have different strengths, and you can see these from the seed bank features.

          However, ILGM (I Love Growing Marijuana) seems to have the best-balanced features of all seed banks, like a good selection of beginner and advanced grower marijuana seeds, educational guides, the highest germination guarantee, and 24/7 support for growers.

          But still, Seedsman and Crop King Seeds are other go-to options to buy marijuana seeds online if you wish for variety and fast discreet shipping to your doorstep.

          Pro Tip: To ensure most if not all of your marijuana seeds germinate, use the germination guides from the respective sites for the highest germination rates.

          The news and editorial staff of the Marin Independent Journal had no role in this post’s preparation.

Pros of Auto flower Seeds

The short life cycle of autoflowering cannabis seeds and its hardy nature is why growers, especially beginners, are more inclined to cultivate this non-photoperiod strain.

Faster Life Cycle

Autoflowers have a pretty short life cycle compared to their photoperiod counterparts. Those who have had the joy of growing this type of strain will tell you that some strains can flower in 3 to 4 weeks after the seed is planted. At the same time, photoperiod strains take several months before they bloom. If you are in a hurry to taste marijuana grown by yourself, then autoflower feminized seeds are your best bet.

Discreet Plants

Even though weed is permitted in many states, some states are still restricted. While we don’t advise people to go against the law, even in the legal states, people have to practice discretion when growing this type of plants, riddled with misconception. And the best plant to go with is autoflowering cannabis.
It’s small, and compact size allows you to cultivate this plant in confined spaces, such as closets, balconies, or other hidden places in your backyard. The good thing is that their faster life cycle makes it hard for visitors to notice them, which is not the case with photoperiod strains.

The goal of growing auto strain is to keep it as small as possible, and you can achieve this by giving micro-growing a try. And ensure to use low-stress training to keep the plant short and under control.


Another reason autoflower weed seeds are popular among beginner growers and veterans is their resilient nature, which is attributed to their ruderalis heritage. Their ability to adapt faster makes them ideal for extreme temperatures and harsh climatic conditions.

Majority of autoflowers thrive in the face of diseases and pests as they are resistant. They are also not affected by overfeeding, underfeeding, and mold. Therefore, if the weather changes abruptly in your region, then autoflower marijuana seeds are your go-to strain as they are forgiving and can survive when conditions are not ideal.

Not Affected by Changes in Lighting

Abrupt changes in the lighting schedule, or presence of harsh lighting such as street light, or a leak in a grow tent can mess up photoperiod plants. However, autoflowers are not victims of changes in the lighting system. Because they are not affected by environmental factors such as light cycles, they are their bosses.

Doesn’t Need a Lot of Nutrition

Autoflower cannabis seeds do well in less nutritious soils. Therefore, you do not need to add fertilizers. The growing medium mix for autoflower seeds comprises:
– 3 parts peat moss
– 3 parts compost
– 2 parts moistened perlite, and
– 1 part moistened vermiculite

Higher CBD Strains

Although research is being conducted on the various benefits of marijuana, the existing research shows that cannabidiol, a cannabinoid found in cannabis plants, has many therapeutic benefits.

Autoflower weed seeds have ruderalis genetics, so most autoflowers strains are with low THC and higher CBD than regular or feminized varieties. Therefore, if you want to enjoy the non-psychoactive effects of marijuana, choose to grow an autoflower. But if you want the high, they can still be an ideal choice, but it won’t last as the CBD neutralizes it.

Less Space

If you don’t have a lot of room, don’t worry because the compact size of autoflowers allows you to grow it anywhere, even in your closet. Therefore, you don’t incur the cost of adding space. You can even plant it in your balcony.

Multiple Harvests Each Year

The fact that autoflowers do not rely upon lighting schedule to blooms ensures you that you will have several harvests in a year, especially if you are growing them outdoors. The best way to have a supply of cannabis throughout the year is by staggering your plants. Grow in intervals such that when you are harvesting some, others are nearing their maturity. Another important factor is if you grow autoflower feminized seeds, you eliminate the chances of getting male plants.

Best for Beginners

Their fast life cycle, hardy nature and resistance to diseases, pests, and mold make them suitable for beginner growers. Furthermore, they are less demanding compared to their photoperiod counterparts. It would be best if you choose auto flower seeds feminized as they eliminate the process of pollination, and you are assured that 100% of your plants will be female.

Cons of Autoflower Seeds

Lower Yields

Autoflowers are small and compact, and because of this, they are incapable to produce big and dense buds. And because of its small size, each plant will have a few buds, hence low yields. This makes it an issue for commercial growers, and that is the reason why you can find that they are mostly grown by hobbyists and for personal use. If you want to grow in large amounts, you can use autoflowers seeds feminized to increase the chances of getting female plants, thus more yields. It also eliminates the process of fertilization between male and female plants.

Low THC Strains

Despite their many desirable traits, this cannabis strain is not the perfect choice for a person looking to get high, as they have low THC content. The high derived from smoking autoflowers is not as high as that of regular or feminized photoperiod seeds with high THC seeds.

But don’t let this put you off. You can still find and buy auto flower seeds that have a higher level of THC if you want to get high.

Vulnerable to Growth Errors

The short and fast life cycle and hardiness are why people opt to use the best autoflower seeds for personal weed. However, this can go south quick if you make a mistake while growing or training your plants.

Suppose you choose to train your autoflowers, practice caution because a simple mistake can lead to stunted growth. For instance; if you decide to low-stress train, do it when the branches are still soft and bendable.

The other method of training your plants is super cropping, which is done when the plants have become hardy, and the branches are strong. If you make a mistake here, your plants may or may not recover. This method is not suitable for autoflowers because they grow quickly, and chances are they will not have recovered by the time they reach maturity, thus lowering the already low yields.

Cannot Be Cloned

It’s not a wonder to find that you’ve fallen in love with your plants, and like other marijuana plants, you would like to have several clones of the same plants. This is possible by using cuttings, otherwise known as clones. While this is doable with photoperiod cannabis strains, unfortunately, it is not possible with autoflowering plants. The only way to grow autoflowers is by using seeds.

Note: Although growing from a cutting will give you the same products as the mother plants, the plant-derived from a clone is not as strong as the one grown from seeds and is more susceptible to errors during the cultivation process.

Cost of Lighting

The lighting cost in autoflower weed seeds is high because some growers prefer to expose them to 24 hours lighting schedule. The low cost of nutrients cancels out the high lighting cost. While it’s not a must to expose the plants to a lot of light as they can survive on a 12/12 lighting schedule, the resulting yields will be lower.

How Autoflower Seeds Are Made?

Autoflower marijuana seeds are created crossing different cannabis strains. This involves mixing Cannabis ruderalis with Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica strains to produce some of the most popular autoflowers. Cannabis ruderalis comes from Russia; thus, the reason it is adaptable to cold weather.

Best Conditions for Growing Autoflower Seeds

Within a short time of as little as 6 weeks, you have your autoflowers ready for harvesting. But before getting there, you need to ensure that you have the best conditions for growing this cannabis strain to be guaranteed high-quality weed.

  • Autoflower seeds thrive in light and airy soil. Therefore, the preferred soil mix comprises 3 parts peat moss, 3 parts compost, 2 parts moistened perlite, and 1 part moistened vermiculite. After your soil mix is ready, add some Easy Boost Organic Nutrition to add the required nutrients.
  • Your soil pH should not be too high nor too low, maintain it between 6.0 and 6.5. Make use of a pH tester to monitor.
  • Although autoflowers marijuana seeds do not need a specific lighting schedule, you will get the best results if you stick to an 18/6 lighting cycle. 18 hours light and 6 hours of darkness if you want high yields.
  • Adjust the temperature and relative humidity (RH) accordingly at each growth phase.

Auto Weed Seeds FAQs

How are autoflowering seeds different from regular seeds?

As the name suggests, autoflowering seeds will bloom on their own, whereas regular seeds require more encouragement.

Typically, to get regular seeds to bloom you need to alter their light schedule at a certain time. This requires keeping tabs on where the plants are in their life cycle, as well as having the gear necessary to trigger the flowering process.

Auto seeds have a shorter growing cycle and require less space.

The autoflowering version is often hardier and less sensitive to climate changes or pests and diseases. Basically, auto seeds require much less maintenance and supervision than regular weed seeds, but they’re usually more expensive as a result.

How long does it take to go from seed to harvest with autoflower cannabis seeds?

This will vary depending on the strain, but in most cases an autoflowering version takes 8- 10 weeks.

This is faster than most regular seed strains, so if you’re in a hurry then autoflowering seeds are definitely the way to go.

Do auto seeds have less THC?

In most cases, autoflower seeds have less THC content than their regular counterparts. If you want the strongest buds possible, you might need to go through the hassle of growing regular seeds.

Also, as mentioned, you’ll have to pay for the convenience that autoflowering seeds provide. Not only are the seeds themselves usually more expensive, they require more light in the beginning of their life cycle.

Be prepared to shell out for good auto seeds!

Their compact size can work against you as well. While they require less space to grow, you’ll get less of a yield than you would from a regular strain. You may be able to make up for it by harvesting more often, though.
