If you’ve got a collection of “bag seeds”, you can try sprouting them indoors for future transplant, but keep in mind that these seeds might not be as viable as the ones you’d get from a dispensary or breeder. They may thrive indoors, for example, then burn up outdoors or offer little resistance to pests.
Of course, you won’t be able to sprout cannabis seeds without knowing how to find them first. Though there are a number of dispensaries that occasionally sell marijuana seeds, there are only a few that continuously offer high-quality seeds at affordable prices.
Employees at these locations will also have a slew of information for you about each strain, including plant characteristics, temperament and expected harvest time. When you purchase your seeds, be sure to consult your budtender about best growing practices for each seed.
- Cherry Elixir: A 1:1 THC to CBD ratio, Cherry Elixir is an excellent strain for consumers seeking a therapeutic experience that calms the body and mind. It has a sweet, sugary flavor with rich cherry notes that will appeal to anyone looking for flavorful consumption. Plus, it’s a perfect strain to grow indoors!
- Mountain Thunder: Although Mountain Thunder is a sativa-dominant hybrid, The Farm’s team of expert growers have carefully employed selective breeding tactics to boost CBGA in the strain and eliminate the raciness or paranoia sometimes associated with sativa consumption. As a result, Mountain Thunder provides consumers a clean, clear-headed high that’ll keep you focused throughout the day.
- Strawberry Blonde: Fans of big buds, strong potency and high yields will love Strawberry Blonde. This sativa-dominant hybrid has proven to produce extremely robust plants that smell and taste delicious. Even better, most plants test at approximately 20% THC and provide very euphoric, heavy head highs.

One option is to start with clones of other “mother” plants. You could get clones from friends or buy a few from a place like LaContes Clone Bar or Ballpark Holistic Dispensary, but it is important to remember that bringing clones into your grow might also introduce contaminants such a pests and disease to your other plants, though this is less of an issue when growing outdoors. Clones also tend to be less capable of handling stress and often experience transplant shock if not thoroughly rooted, so be sure to check your clones before purchase.
