Indica is a type of cannabis that is known for its relaxing and sedating effects. People who use indica tend to feel sleepy and couch-locked. Indica is often used in medical applications to treat conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, and migraines.
Cannabis Indica is a species of cannabis that is indigenous to central Asia. It is taller and skinnier than Cannabis sativa, with wide leaves and short flowering time. Its psychoactive properties are thought to be more intense than those of Cannabis sativa.
Cannabis Indica is most often used for medicinal purposes. Its strong analgesic effects make it effective in treating pain, especially chronic pain. It is also used to treat anxiety, insomnia, and other mood disorders.
Sativa is the most popular type of cannabis. It is known for its energizing and uplifting effects. Sativas are typically taller plants with thinner leaves than indicas. They grow best in warm, sunny climates and take longer to flower than indicas. Sativas are often used to treat conditions such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and fatigue.
Sativa is a type of cannabis that is known for its uplifting and energizing effects. People who use sativa tend to feel creative and social. Sativa is often used in medical applications to treat conditions such as anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
Ruderalis is a type of cannabis that is known for its low THC content and high CBD content. Ruderalis is a unique and little known type of cannabis that is often confused with hemp. Ruderalis is the only cannabis variety that flowers automatically, without the need for changes in light duration or photoperiod. This makes it an important source of genetics for breeding autoflowering strains.
Ruderalis is a hardy plant that can grow in harsh conditions, making it well-suited for cultivation in northern climates. While ruderalis lacks the THC potency of other cannabis varieties, it does contain CBD and other cannabinoids that offer therapeutic benefits.
Photoperiod refers to a standard type of seed. With latin roots in the words ‘light,’ and ‘time’—photoperiod seeds are standard seeds that flower based on the amount of darkness they receive each night. Photoperiod seeds will keep growing as long as they do not get more than 12 hours of complete darkness each night.
Growers frequently control the photoperiod in a plant’s life cycle through the use of light to encourage the plant’s vegetative state, early flowering, bud phase, and ultimate harvest.
In cannabis cultivation, plants in the vegetative stage are typically given an 18/6 or 24/0 photoperiod, with the first number representing how many hours of daylight per 24 hours to provide, and the second number representing the amount of darkness hours per 24-hour period.
Autoflowering refers to the life cycle of particular cannabis genetics and strains. If it is an auto-flowering seed, then the plant automatically flowers without having to go through a designated timed light cycle.
Most growers agree that the optimum amount of light to give autoflowering strains is somewhere between 18-24 hours of light a day. As a grower you should adjust the light depending on the cultivar you’re growing. The best light cycle will depend on your growing conditions and your growing setup.
Before you begin planting it is always a good idea to first inspect the seeds for excessive damage and color. Seeds that have a darker colouration stand a better chance of germinating, while pale green or white seeds are likely to fail. Even if dark seeds look slightly damaged, they should be planted anyway. There is a good chance they will still germinate, even if the outer shell is somewhat crushed. The only exception to this rule that I've noticed is freakshow seeds. They are white in color but still share some distinguishable traits of other healthy seeds.
For the best results, I recommend staying within these guidelines, no matter how you choose to germinate. That being said, of all the factors to consider, temperature is one of the most critical. Seeds will always seek out even the smallest amount of moisture, but they use temperature as a sign that they need to do so.
Typically seeds will begin to develop within 12–36 hours of moisture being introduced to them, some can take as long as ten days for the older seeds and may require some more advance techniques.

Your seed/young seedling will only need fluorescent or CFL grow lights, at least to begin with. While plants need light to thrive, too much of a good thing will damage cannabis in its first few weeks. As young seedlings grow quite quickly, you will need to keep adjusting lights to get the best results. After two weeks under fluorescent lights, you will be able to switch to high-powered HPS, MH-style grow lights, or L.E.D.
