non psychoactive and is usually extracted from cannabis types low in THC or from hemp growers. You can grow your own CBD seeds through acquiring high CBD strains.
Why cannabis seeds are expensiveTop quality cannabis seeds are not cheap. They usually start at around $10 upwards each. You can pay well over $100 for a pack of 10 good quality seeds. They are so expensive because growing cannabis is still illegal in many countries. Another reason is demand far exceeds supplies. Right now with legalization going on, everyone is scrambling to buy cannabis seeds. The demand is actually insane at this moment in time. But most importantly any cannabis plant used for seed production instead of bud production doesn’t result any any decent bud for sale. Basically, you can’t sell sub-grade bud from plants used to grow seeds. You see, when you grow seeds, all the trichomes that would be in seedless but, go into seed production. That means a plants used for growing seeds doesn’t have the trichomes seedless bud has.
Economics of a seed breederSo when a grower decides to grow seeds instead of bud, he still needs to recoup this decision, so the costs of seeds are directly related to the costs of bud. A more expensive and popular bud will also have more expensive seeds.
Seeds high in cannabidoilIt does not take long to grow a crop of seeds for commercial reasons now there are large scale breeding programs. But you have to add the cost of genetic testing for the desired traits so the grower knows what they are selling. When you grow cannabis illegally you need to keep production small. Cannabis grown on a small scale costs more because of inefficiencies. It’s impossible to reach maximum productivity on a large enough scale to bring down the price of seeds. Combine this with threats of legal action if caught, it is not hard to see why cannabis seeds are expensive. Keep in mind that generally the more expensive the seeds, the better quality the buds.
Buy top shelf seedsJust buying top shelf seeds does not guarantee good quality, you also have to grow them organically and with care. The industry still operates without any regulations and can use potentially dangerous chemicals and fertilizers. It’s always best and safest to grow your own CBD strains yourself.

Mr. BC Seeds is an over educated old school hippy who has been involved in the cannabis industry since the 1970's. He is one of the most experienced marijuana breeders in Canada if not the entire world. He was the first to use the most advanced breeding techniques in 2008 to create 42 of the world's strongest cannabis strains. He has been writing in-depth articles about cannabis in Canada for decades and looks forward to continue bringing you cutting edge cannabis strains for the decades to come. Mr. BC Seeds uses a "pen name" because he still travels the world collecting cannabis strains and continues researching cannabis in laboratories of non-legalized countries.
