One of the greatest plants in the world
You can never confidently say you know it all, there is a lot of knowledge out there, hidden in books, lyrics, and documentaries and so on. A lyrical genius said in one of his tracks “ancient wisdom is valuable as gifts of gold”. There is just too much to know, and we can’t know them all; however, we can be appraised with some important ones.
Cannabis, commonly known around the world as marijuana, is a wondrous plant, an ancient plant and an ally of humanity for over ten thousand years. The huge impact this product has had on society especially in civilization, and not only that, but conversely as well the impact we’ve had on the product development, is just now being discovered.
This plant was one of the earliest and most important plants placed under cultivation by pre-historic Asian peoples; For example, virtually every part of the plant is usable. I mean think about it, from the stem comes hemp, which is a very long, strong fiber used to make rope, cloth, and paper renowned for durability.
Also, the dried leaves and flowers became the euphoriant, marijuana and along with the root, are also used for many medicines. Think about the fact that the seeds were a staple food in ancient China, one of their major grains, cannabis seeds. They are unpalatable and now cultivated mainly for oil or for animal feeding.
The importance of this plant can’t be under looked, and maybe it explains the dilemma surrounding the use and consumption of cannabis. We still can’t explain why it is the most cultivated plant around the world, which is a testimony to the plants’ tenacity and adaptable nature and to its usefulness and most especially nowadays, its economic value.
Why can’t we let it go
People fear the adverse effects of cannabis especially to the mind; this is in reality shunned by cultivars and vendors of this product but then again there is no smoke without fire, and reality is the purity and probably the usual breed of cannabis, which is mostly cultivated is altered, not entirely or by all cultivars but by some.
There are now different strains that various growers use; There are equally hybrid breeds that are being cultivated nowadays. Cannabis growers over the years have found distinct ways of growing the plant, and this has changed its development a lot.
Therefore, when the genetics of something changes, the effects it used to have will not be the same again. However, as mentioned earlier, this plant is an amazing and peculiar one, used for a lot of things and we can cultivate the cannabis seeds in distinct kinds of ways just to make sure they get their specific and desired results.
Like we mentioned earlier, one of the major reasons for the increased research and development in this sector is because of the economic advantage that the plant has. So many people are seeking a license to grow marijuana or a prescription to use it… not forgetting the illegality in it too, considering that it is also one of the most illegally transported drugs around the world: Yes! It is a drug.
Justbob will definitely help you know of pertinent things in the cannabis market.
Why Cannabis Seeds Are Super Important
Cannabis is one of the few plants to have two sexes, which is male and female, sometimes they even come in hermaphroditic varieties. It probably explains why there have been diverse strains developed over the years and different modes of cultivating them.
Despite all these, there are basically three major species of marijuana, which come from the cannabis seed(s).
There is the Indica, which is relatively short and wide with greener colors and round leaves that have marble-like patterns. It can make you as high as you can imagine… your imagination should run wild, I bet you.
There is Sativa, which can grow taller but are thinner with more pointed leaves that don’t have patterns on them.
Also, there is Ruderalis, not very well known, has small plants used primarily for making clothes, rope, etc.
What is important to cultivars of this plant are mainly the compounds in them, mainly the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)… a compound that is responsible for the reputation cannabis has nowadays.
If you use a careful mood of cultivating this plant such that it remains unpollinated, the female plant will produce more flowers, more buds and more of the THC resin, making the eventual smoke more potent by the time you into harvesting.
How available are cannabis seeds in the market
The most common way to get cannabis seeds online is through a trusted website or by going through the seed bank.
Don’t forget to check the law in force in your state as the flower with a high THC rate could be illegal. In order not to make mistakes, it is advisable not to make the plants bloom and, in any case, not to cultivate if you do not have the mandatory authorizations.
It is important for novice growers who have some experience with different marijuana strains that locating a favorite type is likely a priority. Most vendors, for example, categorize their seeds by strain, they may have unique names for their individual strains and knowing this will reveal early what you can get from that smoke or oil.
After receiving the seeds, make sure that you try to inspect them for their quality; Most seeds have a dark brown color with swirling or marbling patterns. Mature seeds like these are mostly the ones with a higher capacity to germinate and thrive.
Seeds that are the sort of pale green are often not mature enough and were probably taken off the plant too early. They are not good but it doesn’t mean they can’t be cultivated; It just means it won’t be as effective as the dark brown seeds will be.
As has been earlier stated, cultivators use various methods of cultivating these cannabis seeds, both indoors and outdoors, have a mastery of this and know exactly how you ought to cultivate the cannabis seeds, it will help you get the best outcome you can and want.
