Do you want to grow cannabis for the first time, but are not sure where to begin? To help you make the right decision, we have created this special selection of cannabis seeds for beginners, all of which are resistant to the most common mistakes. These seeds are also suitable for experienced growers who are trying out a new grow space or cannabis cultivation method.
What are cannabis seeds for beginners?
Growing your own cannabis plant is a great experience. From germinating the cannabis seed, to seeing the first flowers develop, to harvesting your own delicious buds. But for newcomers to cannabis gardening, there is a lot to learn. Luckily you can rely on over thirty years of experience from Sensi Seeds. As one of the first cannabis seeds breeders in the world, we know as few others which varieties are best suited to make your first grow a success story!
But what are beginner’s cannabis types, exactly? The answer to this question can be found by examining three factors: the characteristics of the plant, the environment it will be growing in, and the experience level of the gardener.
The characteristics of the plant lie in its genetic makeup. Because cannabis has spread over most of the planet, unfailingly adapting to its environment along the way, many different types have evolved. In addition to this natural diversity, deliberate breeding projects have combined distinct and favourable qualities to create new types of cannabis. For over three decades, Sensi Seeds has been collecting the best cannabis genetics in the world and breeding numerous new hybrids, each with its own particular characteristics.
In terms of external (non-genetic) influences, the environment in which your plant will be growing and flowering is very important. Cannabis has adapted to the many different areas in which it grows to increase its chances for survival. For example, cannabis types from the Himalayan regions are used to changeable weather conditions and a large difference between day and night temperatures. Other varieties, including those from equatorial climes, are adapted to a consistent, warm, and humid tropical climate. The tendencies of a cannabis seed variety to perform best in a specific climate are good indicators as to whether that variety will thrive in your garden.
Finally, your experience is of great importance. However well prepared you are as a debutante cannabis gardener, the chances are you will make one or two beginner’s errors. These go with the territory, and you can learn from them. However, these mistakes can potentially have major consequences if your chosen seed variety is not resistant to them, or if your plants are growing in an unfavourable climate for that type. Some examples of common beginner’s misjudgements are too little (or too much!) nutrition, pots that are too small, excessive variation in pH levels, or summers that are too short for the recommended period of flowering to be completed.
Sensi Seeds and White Label Seed Company have made a selection of cannabis strains for this Cannabis Seeds for Beginners section which possess the best qualities for resisting and recovering from basic gardening troubles, and develop into plants that can flourish in almost every climate.
Why choose Sensi Seeds cannabis seeds for beginners?
A good beginning is half the work, and that starts with your choice of cannabis seeds. Sensi Seeds offers the genetics that can really help you as a beginner.
Our varieties were selected based on their stability, resilience, vitality, short flowering time, and potential to produce heavy, potent harvests. Other than these advantages, they are comparable with all our other superb strains, so you do not have to sacrifice anything in terms of taste, quality or yield!
Thanks to their stability, their growth and development will not be stunted by unforeseen circumstances or cultivation issues. The early detection of fungus or mould (“bud-rot”), or pests, requires some experience, but thanks to their high genetic resistance, the plant types in this section are much less vulnerable to these troubles. The short flowering time makes them suitable for a wide range of climates and their robust tenacity makes for exceptional ease of cultivation. This combination of traits delivers a higher chance that your seeds will develop into plants that will reward you with a successful and satisfying first cannabis harvest.
All these qualities make the seed types in this category ideal for everyone who wants an easy harvest with little effort. In addition, experienced growers also frequently choose seeds from this category when they are trying out a new grow space or cultivation method such as sea of green or screen of green. Cannabis seeds for beginners are namely selected for possessing qualities that mean they can more easily recover from problems in their cultivation environment.
