Yes, your seeds are alive! Often people tend to miss the fact that seeds are very much alive. When you do not see any changes taking place in the seeds when it is stored, many people forget that it is a living organism. Therefore they forget the fact that even the seeds need proper protection and care if you want to have a good outcome. There are many ways in which the seeds can be used later. It is said that seeds are the powerhouse, and hence everyone needs to follow the right way to preserve the seeds so that they get the best out of them. When you are storing your seeds, you need to remember that the right conditions should be created for them to be stored and then better for use; they should be provided the optimal conditions if you are looking forward to Planting them. There are different ways in which you can use these seeds. You can either plant them and grow them to harvest later and use them for various reasons. You can also use it for further harvesting and planting more plants and developing a business of different strains. But whatever you do, you have to be sure that the seeds don't go bad before they are ready for use.




Many people forget this, but it's true—your cannabis seeds are living organisms. Before they germinate, however, they are in a state of rest (much like some animals when they hibernate). And, like all living things, seeds can die. When storing your seeds, you'll want to give them the optimal conditions to ensure they hold through until you're ready to germinate and plant them.


Things to consider while preserving Cannabis seeds


Certain factors you should know act as an enemy to the well-being of your seeds. Only when all these factors are taken care of will your seeds be preserved properly and remain fresh and healthy for your future use. There are not one but four main factors that you have to take care of to create a perfect condition and allow your seeds to be healthy for a long period of time. The four conditions are-


  • Light
  • Humidity
  • Temperature
  • Oxygen


In ideal conditions, all these four properties should be in their optimal condition to allow the seeds to germinate. If there is an imbalance in the conditions, your seeds can go bad and good and not turn into healthy plants. You have to take care of your seeds properly and create the perfect environment at the right time for the seeds to germinate and grow into the plant that you are planning to grow.


Even if you want to use seeds as it is for the future, you have to preserve them properly so that they are fresh and ready to use whenever you want them. For instance, if you are looking forward to using the seeds after a month or two, you have to make sure that you keep them stored in airtight George where they have no access to Oxygen, and the temperature is low enough to keep them fresh. There should be minimum to no light, and of course, the humidity should not exceed anywhere from 12 to 15%. Only when you have taken care of all these conditions will your seeds be healthy for a long period of time, and you can use them either as it is in the form of seeds or you can create the conditions where you can germinate them and plant them when the time is right.
