If you’re feeling ambitious you can take the seeds out of your pot and try to grow from them. Here are a couple tips for determining whether or not to grow with the seeds you find:
In other words, it simply reflects the type of bud we all strive to get; seedless.
Saving the Seeds
Having some seeds in the mix doesn’t mean your weed is bad. However, if your buds have a lot of seeds in them it might not be as potent as it could be. The potency can be significantly reduced as the plant’s energy is working towards reproduction and producing seeds instead of just the flower, cannabinoids (CBD, THC), trichome and terpene goodness.
The best way to avoid seedy weed is to grow your own. If that isn’t possible, purchase from a qualified vendor and not just your friend’s brother down the street. If you’re purchasing from a reputable establishment online or offline you will be able to verify the quality beforehand. You can ask questions to figure out how well the plant was treated and you can avoid otherwise low quality weed.
Why This Matters
High-quality weed is important when you invest your hard earned money in what you smoke. There are a handful of things that can decrease your bud quality, one of which is finding seeds in your weed.
It’s been posited by some potheads that seeds and stems contain no THC, taste like shit, and will make you sick or even infertile. More positive stoners, on the other hand, have faith in the byproducts’ heightening abilities and promote the smoking, drinking, and planting of stems and seeds. Obviously when it comes to drugs like marijuana, everyone reacts to these things differently, but that, my friends, is how legends are born. This week’s MythPuffers is seed-and-stem-centric — focusing on not one but three common myths and questions surrounding the two little things potheads dread most.
Now that your stems have been taken care of, what about your seeds? One of the most popular myths — or hopes rather — is that planting seeds found in dumpy weed will grow into beautiful marijuana plants.
Not only is stem tea easy to make but, also, if done correctly ,it’s a great way to get rid of saved stems. While some might believe that stem tea is a sham after learning last week that THC is not water soluble, there are several recipes available on the Internet (like this one) which suggest steeping your pot in something fatty, like milk, or for the hard-core tea drinkers, something alcoholic. Although stem tea will not produce a high as strong as one from smoking — leaves, not stems — there are traces of THC in the stalks and thus drinkers will experience mind alterations if the beverage is prepared correctly.
