Now that we know what they are, how do we choose and use them?
This is part of the reason why people generally prefer to buy their seeds from a reputable seed seller, due to the fact that you are more likely to know what you’re getting.

Some unscrupulous sellers sometimes mix in small amounts of other buds to help bring up the bulk of their strains, whether through lack of availability or because they think it might improve the quality.

After a few days to roughly a week, the seed will begin to spread out its roots and start to shoot up towards the sun. You’ll likely even see the very beginnings of tiny marijuana leaves!
Before we get into the nitty gritty, let’s cover some basics. Seeds are what you get after pollination occurs. Cannabis flower (buds) are produced from the female plant. If you find seeds in your bud, that means the female cannabis plant came into contact with some pollen from the male plant, which results in your plant getting fertilized and producing seeds.

Saving the Seeds
This doesn’t mean it’s bad for your health but we advise against smoking seeds. Please remove them as you see them – you may find them crushed up in your grinder! The presence of seeds does mean that the total mass of smokable weed is compromised with decreased cannabinoid content and quite a few unwanted seeds. Think about it this way: If you purchase an ounce of cannabis and it comes filled with seeds, you are paying for the seeds which are less desirable than the cannabis flower that you were expecting.
