In which categories of shops can you find cannabis seeds? Here’s what you need to know.

If you’re wondering where to find cannabis seeds, you’ve probably heard about this fascinating product and want to take weed seeds home with you. You probably have a thousand questions in your head, and in the next few lines, we will try to answer all your questions.

First of all, you should know that marijuana seeds are legal in the UK because they are totally THC free. Therefore, their sale is free like other common seeds. What is not allowed by law, however, is to germinate the cannabis seeds because they would give life to a cannabis plant that would produce THC-rich buds.

Their use is therefore not for cultivation, but collection and food use. However, it is essential to know that marijuana seeds are available in different forms and should specify which type is suitable for you.

Let’s go straight to what these cannabis seed varieties are.

Dried cannabis seeds: what they are and what they are used for?

Dried cannabis seeds are that product usually sold in supermarkets along with dried fruit, cereals and other seeds such as sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, etc. Their intended use is purely for food and derives from the oriental tradition of vegetarian cooking.

Considered for centuries as “food for the poor”, dried marijuana seeds have gained importance in recent years with the spread of vegan and vegetarian diets in the West. Because of their nutritional properties, cannabis seeds are now considered a natural dietary supplement.

Fats and carbohydrates mainly provide the caloric intake of dried cannabis seeds. Fatty acids account for about 30% of the total weight of the seed and are mostly polyunsaturated, while the vitamin most present is vitamin E.

Their use in cooking implies their presence in the following types of dishes in particular:

  • Salads
  • First courses
  • Chicken Main Dishes

Hulled weed seeds are a variant of dried marijuana seeds derived exclusively from the cannabis Sativa strain and also for food use. This type of seed is defined as “shelled” because the outer shell of the seeds is removed so that the product is crunchy, but at the same time remains very tender, much like soybean sprouts.

The characteristic taste of shelled cannabis seeds is reminiscent of hazelnut, and their appearance has earned them the nickname “heart”. Their nourishing power is similar to that of dried seeds, and for this reason, they are an essential part of your diet.

Hulled cannabis seeds are used in the preparation of the following foods, among others:

  • Mueslis
  • Shakes
  • Desserts
  • Cakes
  • Salads

Now let’s see what THC-rich marijuana seeds are.

Cannabis seeds abundant in THC: reality or fantasy?

We told you in the first few lines of this article that marijuana seeds do not contain THC. So now you wonder why there is a product called “high THC cannabis seeds”. In reality, it is a false friend, in the sense that the seeds themselves have no trace of THC, but they can generate a plant that produces THC-rich flowers.

For this reason, the marijuana seeds that you find in online grow shops such as Sensory Seeds are products intended only for collection. Germinating them would mean breaking the law and could cause you a lot of problems, so unless you live in a country where growing cannabis seeds is allowed, we do not recommend it.

There are three types of marijuana seeds to collect:

The feminized seeds have the property of giving birth to a female cannabis plant, thus capable of producing THC inflorescences according to the hours of light and darkness received. Auto flower seeds are feminized seeds and generate a cannabis plant that flowers automatically … not according to the photoperiod. In contrast, fast growing weed seeds have the same auto-flowering characteristics but with much faster flowering times (sometimes only 40 days).
