high times seeds and strains guide

Super Silver Haze – High Times Winner for the years of 1997-1999. This is one of the best Sativa strains so much that it won for three straight years first place. This strain was created by crossing Skunk, Haze, and Northern Lights together.

Girl Scout Cookies – This strain first made a name for itself when it took the cannabis cup in 2013. Every since this strain remains one of the most popular today in California. It’s one of the most smoked weed strains in California at the moment. This strain was developed by crossing the famous african strain Durban Poison with OG Kush.

We recommend checking out the official list of past Cannabis Cup winners here. You can find most of these cannabis strains available in seeds on our website. Our High Times seeds are frequently growing as we discover new breeders and add them. Most websites require a minimum amount purchase per strain while we do not. This allows our customers to diversify their options of seeds instead of being limited by minimums. Those looking for a specific type of seed such as autoflowering and feminised can find some of these options available for sale too.

Once you determine the legality of cannabis seeds in your state, have figured out what kind of cannabis you want to grow and have purchased your marijuana seed of choice, what’s next? You’re going to have to store your seed. But what is the optimal way to do this?

Okay, so now you know the basics of what seeds are and how to begin the planting process. Feeling inspired and planning your grow operation already? Great! But first thing’s first. You have to buy some. But where? Since cannabis is federally illegal, surely the embryonic form of cannabis is prohibited as well, right? Not necessarily. If you reside in a state with either legal recreational weed or a medical marijuana program, chances are, you will be able to purchase seeds without any issue. However, some medical marijuana programs do not allow the purchase or possession of cannabis seeds for home growing. So make sure you do your research regarding your state’s medical marijuana program or recreational cannabis laws.

To put it in the most basic terms, a seed is a plant that is in its embryonic stage. Like animals, plants reproduce by, well, reproduction. The process actually isn’t totally dissimilar from that of animals. In order to produce a seed, a plant’s ovule (like an ovum, or egg) needs to be fertilized by pollen (similar to sperm).

Storing Your Seed

It might be tempting to buy your seeds online. You’ve probably seen ads for websites claiming to sell superior seeds at an attractively low price. We strongly recommend that you do not fall into this trap. As with many things, keep the motto “buyer beware” in mind. Purchasing anything online has its risks. But cannabis seeds are particularly tricky because of the federal prohibition. Where you buy your seeds is ultimately up to you. But we recommend that you make your purchase at a dispensary or a trusted friend or colleague.

So how do you germinate your cannabis seeds? First, you have to determine whether or not your seed is even viable. According to the experts, an ideal marijuana seed should be dark in color with black stripes. If you have seeds that look like that, great! Germination should be successful. There are a few methods of germination, but the easiest one is the paper towel method. Simply put your seeds between two damp paper towels on top of a flat surface, like a tray, and keep that on top of a warm surface. A root should break through the seed in just a few days.

Once you’ve done your research and you have determined that yes, buying cannabis seeds is totally legal, the next step is to actually make your purchase. So where do you buy them? More to the point, where do you buy quality seeds? Your best bet is making the purchase at your dispensary. You’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your seeds will be high quality. And if you need guidance on what kind of seeds to buy (ie what strain would work well in whatever environment or climate you live in), the people working in the dispensary should be able to help you out.

Once the ovule is fertilized by the pollen, a seed is formed. Like an embryo, a seed contains a wealth of genetic material. Inside that one tiny object is the future of the organism. And like animals, the fate and final outcome of the seed is almost entirely dependent on how you treat it in its early stages of development. Here’s how to set up your baby, er, cannabis plant, for health and success.

This original “Creeper Sativa” variety is a fast grower. The Creeper genetics produce huge amounts of branches and buds. It will need support for sure; it’s a big plant! The buds are not the biggest in size, but they have a nice dense structure and appearance. The smell leans toward the gassy/chemical side of the spectrum. This variety needs around 10 weeks of flowering. When the blooms are mature, they will be covered in resin. This is a high-yielding strain perfect for making extracts. The hash that is made from this plant is top quality as the buds are simply excellent.

In keeping with the old traditions, the SSSC sells only regular seeds, meaning that both female and male seedlings emerge from their beans. The benefits of this are many, but the most important is hybrid vigor. Because the seeds are produced from distinctly different parentage, the F1 progeny (or first filial generation) is stronger than its parents and results in bigger yields of potent pot. The key is to grow the seeds out, discarding the males and keeping the females to flower or holding on to them as mother plants in their vegetative stage. This way, you can take clones from the mother plants that you know will be female and behave identically to their parent.

Old to the New

Tips From the Master Breeder
Make sure you have enough height in your room/tent because these will get tall. Or flip the light cycle (into a 12/12-hour regimen) earlier than normal, while the plants are still small.
