Cannabis seeds are all you need to start enjoying the many properties of this amazing plant that’s been around for thousands of years and been used for many medicinal issues, not just for getting high.
Many people have illnesses that cause them a lot of pain and they need something that can give them some relief, some people suffer from depression and need a way to feel active and energetic again. All of these things are treatable with medicine, but many, if not all, of those medications have side effects – the best way to proceed is to grow cannabis. The best treatment is cannabis, and there are genotypes that can treat a myriad of illnesses, divided into indicas and sativas that each have different effects on our bodies which are totally natural and you can even grow it in your own home (although, this is not necessarily legal everywhere so be careful!).
We’re going to explain some of the history behind cannabis seeds and the effects that they have depending on the genotype.
Cannabis seeds are this plant’s natural way of reproducing in the wild, the same way that hundreds and hundreds of plant species reproduce. When they’re born in the wild, these seeds can turn out to be male or female, and obviously there needs to be a male and a female together for the female to produce seeds. Once the seeds have formed they fall to the ground to make sure that another plant will grow in its place. Apart from all of this, cannabis seeds are extremely rich in nutrients and many birds eat them; the evolutionary capacities of these seeds is amazing, as they’ve evolved to be nutritious so that birds can pick them up and drop them in other places, allowing them to expand their territory. It grows this way in the wild in many countries, but many more countries have taken it upon themselves to make it illegal to grow this plant yourself.
There are three types of seeds that you can get; sativas, indicas, and ruderalis. Each one has specific effects, although you can find a large variety of strains within each type as well as hybrids that are mostly indica with a sativa effect and vice versa.
- Sativa cannabis seeds have effects that keep the body and the mind active and energized; they’re great for helping with depression, as they can help depressed people feel active and the need to do things again thanks to the mental effects that sativas have. They’re distinguished by their long thin leaves, and their flowers tend to appear later than in indica strains, as well as ending their flowering period later.
- Indica cannabis seeds are the complete opposite to sativas; they’re useful for when you’re very stressed and you’re having issues sleeping due to distracting thoughts and what not. They have an extremely relaxing narcotic effect, both bodily and mentally. They also induce hunger, which is perfect for people that are suffering from a loss of appetite or people with nervous stomachs. They’re recognized through their short, wide leaves that their early, quick flowering period.
- Ruderalis cannabis seeds can have one effect or another, as it’s practically indica but it grows at extremely high altitudes and in colder areas to the north of Europe. They can’t be bought on the seed market right now; you can only find hybrids with sativas or indicas so you can’t really get the full effect from these seeds. They flower according to growth rather than the light, unlike sativas and indicas.
Now, you just have to get your hands on some cannabis seeds. Many seed banks sell seeds and strains that are extremely sought after in the entire world, so they’re not that hard to get, and you can even find full descriptions of each seed and its effects on the seed banks site and also on our website at lower prices. There are thousands of strains of cannabis seeds; before judging this amazing plant you should try it out for yourself both medicinally and recreationally, and you’ll see just how beneficial it is for the human mind and body.
