The Seed Type parameter in our Seed Selector allows you to choose between regular or feminised seeds. Each regular seed has a chance of becoming either male or female. Feminised Seeds are virtually always female.
The Flowering Type parameter in our seed selector refers to the way in which flowering is induced. The term 12/12 Photoperiod means that the hours of daylight must be reduced to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of Darkness in order to induce flowering. Autoflowering strains will commence flowering under any light cycle.
The Height Parameter in our seed selector refers to that strain's expected height once the plant has matured. In our seed selector there are three different height categories, they are Short (Up to 80cm); Medium (81cm-140cm); Tall (140cm+). Height not only varies greatly from strain to strain, but can sometimes also show variation within a single strain. For this reason some strains may be indicated as expressing multiple heights such as both Short and Medium, or Medium and Tall.
There are many different strains of cannabis, all showing different characteristics. In our Seed Selector some strains are described in terms of the geographical region where their genetics came from, so the strain may be Africa, Middle East, Asia-Central, Asia-South East, Central America and Caribbean, South American, Hawaiian etc. Some parameters in our Seed Selector refer to popular names which have over the years been developed for strains, such names include; Blueberry, Purple Strains, Cheese, Haze, Kush, Skunk, Diesel and of course the infamous White Strains. In our Seed Selector it is also possible to search for strains which are thought to be good for Medicinal use, or strains which are Regular or feminised. Perhaps you may want Auto-flowering seeds? Whatever you're after you're certain to find it with the Seed City Seed Selector. In the Seed Selector it is common to come across strains categorised as multiple Strain Types, for example Blueberry is generally composed of Thai x Afghani, so Blueberry will be categorised as Asia Central- for the Afghani, Asia South East- for the Thai, and then Blueberry for the Blueberry!
The most popular cannabis seeds section automatically compiles the most popular seeds from the last 48 hours. You can order any list of seeds you can create with the Seed Selector by popularity by selecting it in the dropdown list on the right of the navigation bar. Click the little pyramid symbol to list by descending popularity to see the most popular cannabis seeds of the last 48 hours at the top of your list. For instance you can see the most popular cannabis seeds with the most popular one at the top by clicking the link.
12/12 photoperiod plants which are grown indoors require a 12 hour period of complete darkness every 24 hours in order for plants to flower. The length of the flowering stage varies from strain to strain. In some strains the flowering stage can be as short as 45 days, while others can take more than 100 days. Auto-flowering strains do not require a change of light cycle and are often quoted a finishing time in days from germination to maturity- this is what we will categorise in the seed selector. In our seed selector we categorise Indoor Flowering Time as:
Short – up to 55 days
Medium – 56 days to 90 days
Long – 91 days+
The amount of time taken for a plant to reach maturity can vary a little when grown outdoors. A plant will flower once it feels the daylight hours closing in. The initial stages of flowering are a little more gradual when plants are grown outdoors, this is due to the more gradual change in daylight hours.
Yield is the term used to describe the weight of plant material one could expect. In our seed selector we categorise strains in two different ways; AVERAGE and HIGH. Most strains are categorised as Average, with High being reserved for the true high yielders!
Strength is the term used to describe how strong the desired effect could be. We have categorised it in three different ways; MILD, NORMAL and SUPER STRENGTH. Super strength generally refers to strains which contain a THC content of 20%+
In the Seed City Seed Selector it is possible to refine your search depending on the smell and taste that some cannabis seed strains may have. Typical headings in this category may include Sweet, Sour, Peppery, Woodsy etc. See the Seed selector for the full list!
Here at Seed City we have a special page for the Cup Winners. That way you can skip to the prize-winning strains which have won the competitions over the years. Here at Seed City we don't discriminate! Although the High Times Cannabis Cup is a fantastic competition we also think it's important to include the winners from all of the other world wide cannabis cups. The Cup Winners can be located on the 'Cup Winners' tab on the main menu of the Seed City home page. There is also a cup winners option on our Seed Selector, so you can combine cup winning varieties along with any other strain characteristics you may require for your seed collection.
Here at Seed City we stock over 2,600 different collectible strains from more than 150 breeders. There is no shortage of choice here at seed city!
Here at Seed City we are able to offer the vast majority of our strains as single seeds! At present we have about 2,200 strains which are available to buy as single seeds. However, if you don't see what you want then do not hesitate to get in touch! If there is a particular single cannabis seed you want and it doesn't show up in the seed selector then drop us a line or give us a call. There is a very good possibility that we may be able to sort it out.
Here at Seed City we are able to offer some of our strains at an even lower price than normal. Our cannabis seed sale items will normally be marked as 15% off making them by far the cheapest seeds you will find online. If there is a particular seed bank that you would like to see a sale on, please let us know and we very well may be able to accommodate your request. Here at Seed City we are always keen to find out what our customers want in their collectibles.
The price section of the seed selector can be used to remove options which for whatever reason are out of your budget. This works best when you decide how much you want to spend per seed. So if you wanted 5 seeds, and £40 is your budget, then you can select to remove any other options that are out of this price range. A very handy tool for thinning out the huge range of seeds we have on offer!
The Environment selection tool allows you to filter a list of strains that are suitable for either for Indoor environments, outdoor environments, or greenhouse. Many strains available are suitable for all three environments, and will show up regardless of which you select. However some strains are ONLY suitable for indoor, and some strains are ONLY suitable outdoor environments, this can be for many different reasons such as an ‘Indoor Only’ strain hasn’t been tested on the wider range of pathogens, disease and general contaminants that it may come into contact with when grown outdoor. Or an ‘Outdoor Only’ strain may grow too tall for an indoor environment. If you know what you are looking for is an indoor strain, then select ‘Indoor’ on the seed selector to ensure that no Outdoor only strains make their way into the selection.
We have had to add this section into our seed selector due to a new set of strains that have been developed where the Cannabinoid profile differs some what to most of the strains we are used to. A collaboration between Shantibaba of Mr. Nice seeds and Resin Seeds has led to the creation of the CBD Crew seed bank. CBD Crew concentrate exclusively on strains that have either a balanced ratio of THC:CBD, or in the cases of some strains they have a 1:2 ratio of THC:CBD! These strains are intended for the seed collections of people who wish to connect genetics that have the most medicinal value. There are now a few other seed banks that have these strains in their range and this is sure to be a thing of the future.
Also in the Cannabinoid Profile section of the seed selector it is also possible to make a selection for ‘High CBD’ this selection refers to the standard THC Dominant strains that we are used to, but with a decent level of CBD as well (for a THC Dominant strain). Please note: the High CBD section is limited, as many of the seed banks that produce the THC dominant strains do not bother to report the levels of CBD in their strains.
Here is a short guide on how best to store your seeds. The first thing to note is DO NOT FREEZE YOUR SEEDS. Both the freezing and thawing processes cause the internal cells of the seed to rupture and become damaged, causing the seed to be defective.
The main things to bare in mind when storing cannabis seeds are that the seeds are protected from moisture, oxygen temperature fluctuations and light as much as possible. Seeds should always be kept well labelled and in a suitable container that protects them from getting damaged from some sort of physical impact. They should also be stored in dry, dark place that has a cold temperature (although not as low as freezing).
Some people prefer to just wrap, or contain the seeds as well as possible, and store them just in a dry room temperature environment to avoid the seeds coming into contact with moisture. This storage method can have disadvantages as well, as your seed collection is open to Temperature fluctuations, and may also be damaged by light.
Many people prefer to keep their seed collection in a fridge, as a fridge will protect your seeds from Light and also sudden temperature fluctuations, your seeds will also be stored at a cool temperature. However by storing your seeds in a fridge it is extremely important that you ensure that condensation doesn’t build up, which would damage your seeds should they not be sufficiently protected.
Here at Seed City we suggest storing your seeds in a fridge in the following way-
1. Place the seeds in small scientific grade microcentrifuge tubes, the best sort to use are the black ones that do not allow light in (used for photosensitive samples).
2. Fill any left over space in the tube with cotton wool, or a foam insert such as that used for ear plugs, or the sort used for earphone covers.
3. Label the tube with the correct strain/ generation name, use a pen that will not rub off, or be damaged by moisture.
4. Then to protect the seeds from moisture place the tube(s) in a plastic ‘baggie’ or jewellers bag along with a silica gel sachet
5. Place this baggie in your seed collection in the fridge! Check the outside of the plastic tubes regularly for a buildup of moisture, and change the silica gel sachets if you notice a build up of moisture.
Depending on where you live in the world, and how secure your seed collection is; you may have to be careful that small animals and insects don’t damage your collection. Seeds are sought after food for many little critters :)
