If you want to sell your customers high quality weed, then you need to start with high-quality seeds. Once you’ve decided what strain you want to buy, whether its Blue Kush or Sativa, you need to make sure that you exercise a certain amount of quality control with regards to the seeds that you get. It takes a little bit of practice to identify seeds that are worth buying, but we’re here to help you identify the same. Here are 5 things you need to know before you buy cannabis seeds!

They should look healthy!

One of the biggest things that can tip you off regarding the health of your seeds is the overall look and appearance. Better quality seeds are typically darker and when you touch them, they should feel firm. The most genetically super forms of seeds should have dark grey or black outer colours, with tiger stripes sometimes appearing on their bodies. Another way to test whether the seeds are healthy is by exposing them to white light and checking to see whether there is a waxy quality to the outer body. If a whitish sheen presents itself, then you know that its healthy.

If the seeds you have crack the minute you apply a little pressure, it means that they are poor quality.

They should smell healthy too!

Before you buy cannabis seeds, give the bag a nice long whiff. If you can smell the potency of the weed through it, then you know that the seeds inside are not only healthy, but were harvested at the right time. Sometimes, growers end up with healthy seeds that have been harvested too soon (in other words, they are young), and this can lead to a delay in your yield.

They should germinate well!

Finally, when buying cannabis seeds, test whether they germinate correctly. This can be a great way to know if the batch is a healthy one. Just leave a few seeds in water to test whether they open and sprout. If they do, you know that you’ll be able to plant them and get a good yield. If they don’t germinate at all, then that’s a bit of a red flag.

Though these three rules are the most crucial ones to keep in mind, there’s another one that you should never forget. Make sure that you get your seeds from a good place that has a good reputation. Otherwise, there’s no telling what you may end up with in exchange for your money!

Read consumer reviews religiously and pick strains that you know your customers will like to make sure that your business is always thriving and great.
