How Can I Return a Product?
Unfortunately no returns accepted due to the nature of seeds. We cannot re-sell returned seeds.
What is the different seed types?
Feminized seeds are seeds which have been bred to produce female strains. By means of modifying the genetic makeup, every seed can produce a female plant which will have sticky resin covered buds for harvesting. Also, this is a more convenient means of knowing a plant’s gender, thus getting rid of the possibility of male plants pollinating and fertilizing the female plants.
Automatic Seeds will tend to flower after a shorter period of time than Regular or Feminised seeds and as the name suggests they flower automatically after a certain point regardless of the amount of light to the plant. All Autoflower seeds we sell are feminised.
The plant has a shorter vegetation period and can flower earlier than the usual compared to a similar strain.
The Cannabis plant in its natural state is Dioecious (plants produce a male plant and a female plant but not usually in a single plant) enabling the plants to breed and create new specimens when mixing in their natural environment.
The grower will have no control over the sex of the Regular seeds. They must be grown and will only find out once they start doing so.
Refer to our blog for germination advise and techniques.
Simply put, cannabis seeds germinate correctly with relatively high temperatures and humidity. Keep the temperature between 21-26°C and the humidity as close as 90%. Germination can be anything from 2 days to 10 days.
How should I store my seeds?
Store your seeds in a cool dry place in complete darkness.
For longer term storage you need to keep them around 10’C with a low humidity around 25%
Correct storage is critical for seed viability. UV, heat and moisture diminish seed viability.
Do you guarantee germination?
We store seeds in the ideal environment using specialised seed storage to ensure good quality viable seeds.
Due to the nature of seeds and factors beyond our control we cannot guarantee your success.
The most common mistakes people make is:
1. Not storing seeds correctly until they start with germination.
2. When germinating maintaining a too hot or too cold temperature, or letting seed dry out or soak too much once the seed has sprouted.
What are the different ways of germination?
The three most commonly used germinations techniques include:
2. Paper Towel
3. Directly in a appropriate growing medium including coco mix, Jiffys, rockwool, grow plugs etc.
4. Directly in a soil

What is the different strain types?
Whereas sativa is more of a warm climate weed, cannabis indica is the product of drier, colder climates like Pakistan and Afghanistan. Indica weed is prized for its ability to create a calm, laid back high and this can be attributed to higher concentrations of CBD and lower concentrations of THC. Depending on the exact substrain you’re dealing with, the sense of relaxation will be either more or less intense.
Cannabis sativa is often credited with boosting creativity and opening the mind to different ways of looking at the world. For that reason, it’s considered to produce a “head high”. In the most general sense, sativa strains of weed typically contain more THC and less CBD. So if you are recovering from a football injury and you’re looking for pain relief, sativa is not your ideal choice. On the other hand, if you’re a musician looking to create new material you might want to take your lead from Bob Dylan or Bob Marley and roll a fat spliff of cannabis sativa.
Hybrid strains of cannabis result from crossbreeding sativa and indica strains. Because there are hundreds of different sativa and indica strains the number of hybrid strains is mind-numbing and is currently thought to be more than 3,000. In fact, most new cannabis strains are hybrid strains, with crossbreeding being the driving force behind the surge in potency apparent in many new cannabis products.
What are cannabinoids and terpenes?
Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds that produce the psychoactive effects most people are after when they load up their glass pipes. That is, the high. The cannabis plant is known to contain nearly 500 chemical compounds of which more than 80 are known cannabinoids. As far as researchers can tell, however, only 2 of these cannabinoids are responsible for most of the effects associated with weed. They are tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, and cannabidiol or CBD.
THC produces most of the psychoactive effects associated with weed. When you get high it’s because of the THC in the weed. And how high you get has to do with the amount of THC in the weed, its potency. In recent decades selective breeding of cannabis plants has resulted in a general rise in the potency of most cannabis strains.
CBD on the other hand, does not produce a high. Instead, its effects have more to do with things like pain reduction and general relaxation. Many people today use CBD oil to address a plethora of health issues including arthritis, pain associated with injury and relief from anxiety. For this reason, some states have legalized CBD-specific products for medical applications while continuing to outlaw head shops and marijuana use.
Terpenes are perhaps the most misunderstood component of weed. They are important because they are responsible for the color, taste and aroma of marijuana.
From creating a sense of calm to promoting focus and invigoration, marijuana can cause many different effects. A lot of these effects can be traced to its terpenes – ingredients that are responsible for imparting various herbal, spice, fruit, or floral scents and flavors into the cannabis plant. In recent years, scientists and cannabis users alike have been looking into the potential benefits of cannabis terpenes, as well as the mechanisms through which they work.
Terpenes are aromatic molecules that help give plants a particular taste or smell. They’re the reason why lavender imparts its signature soothing aroma and why certain marijuana strains have a citrusy, floral, or even woody flavor and scent.
The power of terpenes goes beyond affecting just the nose and tongue, however. While it has always been assumed that cannabinoids were the power behind marijuana’s effects, terpenes play a large role, as well. Terpenes can bind with the same receptors as cannabinoids to create various effects. This makes understanding terpenes a particularly useful bit of cannabis information, as it means that consumers can better customize their high or cannabis health benefits by knowing what terpenes they’re ingesting.
Given that marijuana terpenes differ from one strain to the next, this (in combination with cannabinoids) is why one strain can be wildly stimulating while another may cause intense drowsiness and relaxation. Researchers believe that the combination of cannabinoids and terpenes may be responsible for marijuana’s entourage effect, a phenomenon in which its ingredients work differently (and often better) when consumed together rather than individually. For consumers interested in hemp-derived cannabinoids like CBD, there are hemp terpenes, as well.
