Again, whenever possible, keep your seeds in their original packaging. If you do open a pack of seeds and have leftovers, transfer the extra seeds directly into a sealed airtight container.
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.
EFFECTS OF HUMIDITY ON CANNABIS SEEDS
Yes, cannabis seeds can be stored in the freezer. The lower the temperature, the slower they decline. However, it’s usually not necessary to freeze your seeds. Meet the conditions we outlined above, and you should be able to preserve your seeds for up to five years and still get a high germination rate.
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.
Humidity is easily one of the biggest threats to your seeds. Here is how different levels of humidity (% relative humidity) affect your cannabis seeds:
Ahhh, harvest time. After watching your ladies grow and flower, it’s finally time to collect your hard-earned buds. But before you can enjoy a toke of some homegrown Kush, you’ll need to dry and cure your freshly harvested weed. Below, we’ll share our answers to some frequently asked questions on the drying and curing process, so you can maximise the flavour and potency of your stash.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRYING AND CURING?
Drying your cannabis flowers serves several important functions that ultimately increase the quality and shelf-life of the end product.
By placing individual buds on a drying rack—or hanging entire branches in a drying room—you’ll reduce the water content of your buds by 10–15%. This process removes water from the outer layers of each flower, but you’ll need to cure your stash to rid moisture from deeper within the buds.

Hello all I pollinated my blue mystic with some awesome indica bud I smoked had a few seeds from the smoke. Anyway I pollinated about 4 weeks ago and yesterday I took a peak and saw one seed just sitting there and another one about to pop out so I took these two letting one dry now and then I put the other into a wet paper towel. So my question here is do I have to dry seeds before planting? Or can I harvest them off the lady and put them right into germination? This is my first time breeding and I’m not really sure, couldn’t find the answer on the search as well.
Oh the seeds are dark and hard, they have
markings on them but not really distinct
