dark weed seeds

This simple and cost-effective method is a great way to tell the good genetics from the bad; they will sink or swim, literally. Seeds that remain buoyant on the surface are more than likely of poor quality and are to be discarded. Seeds that sink to the bottom like a botanical cannonball are probably healthy and should be germinated.

Are your seeds light or dark in colour? Are they tough or do they turn to dust when you press them between your fingers? These are just some of the ways to tell if a seed is healthy and worth growing. Keep reading to learn more.

We hear this question all the time from clients and beginner growers, and the answer is a resounding no. There is simply no way to tell the sex of a cannabis seed just by looking at it.

Conducting The Float Test

A solid way to obtain great seeds is to find a reputable seed bank. These companies pride themselves of their breeding skills and make sure that their customers receive exactly what has been advertised. They have reputations to cater to, so delivering anything less would only harm their image.

If you are still unsure about the quality of your seeds after analysing their appearance and toughness, it’s time to put your lab coat and goggles on. Well, not quite. This test is extremely easy and only has two possible outcomes. Fill up a drinking glass or glass jar with water (preferably spring or distilled) and place your seeds on the surface.

Keep in mind that the simple process of packaging and storing cannabis seeds can also affect their appearance. Abrupt changes in humidity, temperature, or light exposure can make some seeds appear darker or lighter than others, but ultimately have no effect on their quality.

Unlike other agricultural crops (like vegetables, fruit, or grain), cannabis hasn’t undergone the vigorous breeding techniques that ensure a stable crop. This means that you’ll sometimes sow a pack of seeds technically labeled as the same “strain,” but may end up with very different looking plants. It also means that the individual seeds you buy from a seed bank can vary in appearance.

The THC content of Rare Darkness marijuana can reach peaks of 22% but that doesn’t mean this is the kind of strain you take to a party – its strong indica genetics will have you glued to your couch, if at least with a smile on your face. Expect to experience a headrush at the onset that eventually drifts into a full-body relaxation that pairs well with deep thinking and a night of restorative sleep. Because of its tendency to be uplifting, many patients have discovered Rare Darkness can be great for treating symptoms of depression and other emotional issues.

Rare Darkness marijuana will gift the dedicated gardener with deep-purple buds covered in trichomes, and a euphoric head rush, courtesy of its upwards of 22% THC content.

Once in a while, a marijuana strain graces the cannabis community and becomes highly coveted for well-rounded effects coupled with a tantalizing profile on the nose and tongue. Rare Darkness cannabis is one of those strains, a mostly indica hybrid that delivers a soothing and uplifting high on a deliciously fruity flavored smoke.

Description

A nod to its parents, the aroma of Rare Darkness is heavily grape but complimented by an earthy pungency that’s a little spicy too, a fragrance that becomes more pronounced once the nug is lit up. Provide Rare Darkness marijuana plants adequate light and nutrition, and warmth, and even beginner marijuana growers will produce fast growing plants that offer up an abundant yield of sticky icky, with leaves that can become deep purple and a heavy coating of trichomes that make it look like it’s been dusted with powdered sugar. Rare Darkness requires 8-10 weeks flowering and it will be ready with a harvest of about 8-10 ounces per square meter.
