  1. Growing cannabis is a fun and rewarding endeavor. Here are the steps to planting a cannabis seed, including soil preparation and properly treating the seed itself.

    First and foremost, pick a strain of cannabis suited to your needs—whether it’s to ease anxiety or produce medical grade buds packed with flavor. Learn as much as you can about the strain beforehand to get a sense of how much care the plants will require.

    Once you’ve selected your strain, make sure you have the right soil. Cannabis loves healthy soil, since it encourages better growth and yields, so it’s important to pick a soil with good nutrients, structure, and drainage. You can buy pre-made soil specifically designed for cannabis growth from many local nurseries or you can create your own mix with a few simple ingredients including perlite and compost.

    Now that you have the soil ready to go, you can begin to prepare the seed. Cannabis seeds tend to have a hard outer shell and should be soaked in warm water for about 24 hours before planting to help soften the shell and make it easier to break through.

    Carefully transfer the seed to the soil (you can use your fingers or tweezers). Plant the seed with the pointy end facing downward and about a half a centimeter below the soil’s surface. Gently and evenly spread some soil over the seed and lightly pat it down.

    Next it’s important to keep the soil moist. Gently mist the plant and the soil with water, avoiding wetting the seed directly, and monitor the soil’s moisture levels to make sure it’s not too wet. A seedling tray or humidity dome is great for keeping humidity levels consistent and monitoring the soil’s moisture.

    Finally, find a warm, sunny spot with plenty of indirect light for your seedling. Keeping the temperature between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for cannabis, although many strains can handle temperatures as low as 60.

    Planting cannabis seeds is an enjoyable experience and can provide you with a lifetime of good health and quality buds. Follow these steps, pay close attention to your plants, and you’ll be on your way to harvesting beautiful buds in no time. Good luck!
