does weed seeds expire

When you’re ready to germinate your seeds, inspect them and germinate any seeds with damage to the outer shell first. The outer shell of your seeds is designed to protect the volatile genetics inside. Seeds with cracks in the outer shell are a lot more vulnerable and shouldn’t be stored.

Remember, modern fridges are very dry. It’s super important your seeds aren’t directly exposed to these conditions, as the lack of humidity can cause them to use up their nutrient stores just to stay alive.

Cannabis seeds, with their tough outer shell, seem pretty hardy. And while nature has definitely designed them to hold up to a wide variety of conditions, cannabis seeds aren’t invincible. Rapid changes in temperature and high humidity, for example, can quickly ruin a batch of seeds. Luckily, caring for your seeds is simple. Keep reading to learn how.


If, for example, you live in an area with very warm daytime temperatures and cool nights, try to protect your seeds from these changes and don’t store them outside in a shed or garage.

Ideally, you want to store your seeds in a cool, dark, and dry place. Whenever possible, keep your seeds in their original packaging. At Royal Queen Seeds, we’ve specially designed our packaging to protect our seeds until you’re ready to plant them.

In a last attempt to germinate your seeds, creating a small cut in the seed’s shell may help. However, this is no miracle cure, and you’ll need to be careful to avoid damaging the inside of your seed.

Scientist have grown seeds from plants found in caves from as far back as 30,000 years. As far as I remember from articles. However who knows perhaps even further back, and perhaps I am just unaware. Their is an emerging field in marijuana propigation, for advanced growers that includes advanced techniques in all facets. However the field you where questing was propagation. the answer in short is pretty much no in the term of your life time. If you take care of your seeds you may not have to worry about of advanced methods but if you wish for a perfect 99.99% chance of that seed popping up guaranteed as long as all other precautions are met. Micro Propagation is the answer. Consider it a sub-study field if your interested. In Micro-propagation it defies limitations that clonning or seed starting that many have learned to be truth.

The Reality is your seeds will pretty much live for longer than your life expectancy on this earth. However the likenesses of you being skilled enough to propagate these seeds with a moist towel if you left it on the furnace for 10 years is not very likely at all.

this is the little summary of all my research on this emerging field in marijuana I freely give to whomever is interested. It was not easy together to where I am now and YouTube has a few pieces of information too. but rest assured you do not need to buy expensive kits all of this can be made in your kitchen.

Finally short answer. If you take good care of your seeds under controlled humidity, and no light, and cool temperature 50Deg Fer should be OK. they should be good for a few decades. Just remember the more advanced skills you learn the more guarantee you have for propagation. Good Luck and Happy Grows
