If you have been unlucky and some, or all of your cannabis seeds haven’t germinated, there is usually an easily identifiable reason. Germination isn’t really just about your seed cracking and a tap root appearing, it is about the transition of a seed into a very small, but viable cannabis plant. So, let’s start at the beginning. How long did you soak your seeds in water for? Did they all sink to the bottom of the glass before you transferred them to the moist paper towel? Seeds that were still floating are unlikely to have absorbed sufficient water to successfully germinate. If you leave the seeds in water for too long, the tap root will not form and the germination process will grind to a halt. Once you transferred your seeds to the damp paper towel, over the next few days did you ever let any parts, or all of the towel dry out?
At the earliest stages of germination, the smallest of errors can have major consequences. Similarly, the paper towel mustn’t be steeped in water – the tap root grows naturally as it searches for water – if it is too easy to find, it just won’t grow. If your water has loads of additives, such as copper and chlorine, this can poison your plants, while handling the seeds with dirty hands can also poison them. Make sure you either wash your hands with a non-toxic soap, wear latex gloves, or use tweezers. The next thing to check is the temperature of the seeds. The optimum temperature to keep them at for good germination is between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit or 21 to 21 degrees Celsius.
If the seeds are too cold, they just won’t germinate, even if everything else is perfect. The roots of plants don’t like light and the same applies to the tap root and subsequent roots that will develop when your seeds germinate. Almost total darkness is ideal for germinating seeds, even though it is hopeless for growing seedlings! It is interesting to note that it is certain wavelengths in light that affect germination and it is the blue wavelength that tends to corrupt germination, while the red wavelength promotes germination.
You also have to take into account when bought your seeds? While cannabis seeds can remain viable for a large number of years if stored in perfect conditions, they can be ruined inside a couple of weeks if not stored correctly. Finally, and unfortunately, it’s a fact of mother nature that not all seeds will germinate. Some will be duds and this is out of our control. So, did we miss anything out? we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
Welcome to Grow Your Own with Kyle Kushman! Growing cannabis from seed is a great experience that is quite different from growing from clones. Plus, this route offers a broad range of varieties, diversity, better availability and accessibility, and, most importantly, stronger plants free from genetic degeneration. When choosing the perfect seed for you, the two most critical factors to consider are the seed type and the strain. SEED TYPE: *Regular seeds have roughly a 50/50 chance of becoming a male or a female, and you need both when breeding. *Feminized seeds grow beautiful, smokable flowers full of cannabinoids.
They also eliminate the gender guessing game and the discarding of males. *Autoflower seeds are perfect for novices and those who are too busy to take care of photoperiods. Despite their smaller yields, they remain small, grow year-round, and typically have a life cycle of under 3 months. STRAIN: Apart from the seed type, you must also choose which strain to grow. *Pure Sativa or Sativa-dominant plants are tall, thin plants with long flowering time, which generally translate to higher yields. *Pure Indica or Indica-dominant plants are easier to grow because they evolved in harsh climates. They mature faster with short, compact bud clusters. *Hybrids make up most of cannabis cultivars, comprising different combinations of Indica, Sativa, and autos. Generalizing the growth pattern is tricky, so always refer to the details from the breeder or seller.
Once you already have your seeds. How do you know they’ll sprout? Good seeds are usually dark brown, hard with stripes. In Episode 6, I’ll show the easiest way to germinate your seeds – the first step to growing strong, healthy plants. See you soon, homegrowers!

Fast easy method of making cannabis butter/ weed butter.
What you need:
1 oz of weed/cannabis per Pound of butter
1 cup of water per OZ of herbage
cheese cloth, for straining
1 crockpot for cooking the pot butter
1 spoon for stiring
1 Container for cool down and storage
In this video we take 2 cups of water, 2 pounds of butter, and 2 ounces of cannabis and add them to the crockpot. Then set the crockpot to low for 1.5 hours to melt and simmer. Next you will stir the mixture and place the crockpot on high for 3.5-4.0 hours, allowing it to break down. After it is allowed to break down the weed and the lipids absorb the THC amd CBD, let it cool. Simple then strain the mixture through the cheese cloth into a container, you may want a friend to help hold the cheese cloth. Once you have strained the liquid into a container you will notice the butter is floating on top and the water is separated below. If you now place the container into your fridge,the butter will harden. After the butter hardens you will be able to separate the butter from the water, without much trouble.

http://CBDtheInsideStory.com What is CBD oil? What are the benefits of CBD? How does CBD work? This is The Inside Story of Cannabidiol about the benefits and physiological effects of CBD on the human body. A couple of years ago a remarkable thing happened when CBD oil became legal in all 50 states. If you remove CBD from the THC coming from the cannabis plant or the hemp plant, CBD oil is now legal to use as a nutritional supplement. Since that time of course, the market for cannabis oil has exploded with interest. Truly, CBD is not just another nutritional supplement. This short conversation is going to describe the intense scientific research that is going on around the world on the benefits of CBD, or cannabidiol, and why it is so important for human physiology. In our actual physiology where does CBD work? We are going to travel into our physiology. Right into our central nervous system. We are going to see at the level of individual cells that the cell surface is covered with these green receptors. These are receptors for CBD. When the CBD binds to that receptor it sends a message into the cell which travels all the way down into the nucleus of the cell where the intelligence of our entire physiology is contained in our chromosomes. Here a chromosome will unwind and you are going to see the DNA that contains the codes for everything that our body does. This is like the software that runs our physiology. Genes are the codes for every protein that our bodies make. Including all the signaling molecules that run our physiology. Such as our neurotransmitters that run our nervous system. Our hormones that run our endocrine system and our cytokines that run our immune system. So we see that throughout our physiology we have receptors specifically designed to bind with cannabidiol and CBD has its effect on the nucleus of our cells where proteins are being made. Cannabidiol modulates the transcription of over 1100 genes that make the signaling molecules that naturally reduce inflammation in our central nervous system and throughout our immune system. Restoring homeostasis to both our immune and central nervous systems. Bottom line… One of the benefits of cannabidiol is that it causes a cascade of Homeostasis through our entire central nervous system and our entire immune system. Why is this happening? As I mentioned before we have receptors in our body for CBD. This is called the endo-cannabinoid system. Back in medical school we didn’t’t even know about the endo-cannabinoid system. It was discovered in the 1990’s by Dr. Rafael Mechoulan from the Hebrew University in Israel. So the endo-cannabinoid system is a network of cells throughout our body that have receptors for CBD. In fact, there are more receptors for CBD in our body than any other kind of receptor. So the endo-cannabinoid system is truly the largest network of its kind throughout our entire physiology. Among other things Dr. Mechoulam also discovered that we make our own cannabinoids in or body. This is Anandamide and 2AG. Those two are natural cannabinoids that our bodies make and bind to our CBD receptors. Our bodies are filled with CBD receptors. What kind of symptoms what kind of stress do all these things cause to us? If your immune system is inflamed you might be suffering from autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, inflamed bowel disease, lupus and thyroid. Or fibromyalgia or even multiple sclerosis. And you skin, psoriasis and eczema and all sorts of other chronic infections. Do you realize that many of things didn’t even exist 100 or 150 years ago. Incidences of these sorts of diseases is growing throughout the last century. Now lets take a look at your central nervous system. If it is inflamed what types of things might you be suffering from? Brain fog, migraines, epilepsy, anxiety and PTSD, ADD, ADHD, autism and insomnia. Again, 100 or 150 years ago these kinds of symptoms, these kind of diseases where rare. If you are suffering from any of these conditions, any of these symptoms, CBD might provide you with tremendous healing, tremendous relief, right through your own natural endo-cannabinoid system that brings homeostasis both to your immune system and to your central nervous system. In conclusion, what have we learned from this conversation? That health is achieved through physiological homeostasis right through our natural endo-cannabinoid systems. Therefore, CBD is an indispensable catalyst for optimal health. http://ashermilgrom.primemybody.com
