marijuana buying guide

If you grow some seeds and like the results, try growing another strain from that same breeder and see how it goes.

Feminized and autoflower seeds will cost more because more breeding work was put in to creating them and they take less time for the grower to get buds.

How to look for quality genetics when buying marijuana seeds

Breeders talk about “unstable genetics,” meaning that a seed’s origin is unknown. Make sure that when you buy a packet of seeds that it or the breeder who produced them can list where the seeds came from and how they were crossed and/or backcrossed to get the seed that you hold in your hand. If you can’t get a seed’s history, it could be anything and the result of poor breeding practices.

An inexperienced breeder might cross a male and a female one time and sell the resulting seeds as a new hybrid strain, but professional breeders usually put their strains through several rounds of backcrossing to stabilize the genetics and ensure consistent plants that reflect those genetics.

Because US federal law still prohibits cannabis, it can be hard to find information on seed banks and breeders. Breeders who have a long history and positive reputation are usually a good place to start. To get an idea of what well-established breeders look like, check out:

If you haven’t bought marijuana since college, things have changed. Today it’s all about picking a variety that gives you the sensation you want with the flavors and aromas most enjoy. “You don’t have to trust some dude to tell you it’s strong,” says David Drake, founder of CannabisReports.com. One of the best things about legalization is that it’s brought transparency to weed transactions. “Most sellers are treating both the plant and the customer very respectfully,” says Drake, meaning that like a good bartender, most “bud tenders” are happy to walk newbies through their choices. And you have a lot of choices. Currently, Cannabis Reports is tracking 8,000 different varieties of marijuana, including strains from as far away as Afghanistan and Thailand. He compares each of these strains to wine varietals: While Oregon pinots boast a certain terroir, so too does sativa from Mexico. Follow these basic guidelines for a high that feels good and a product that pleases your senses.
