How to Grow CBD Seeds
After choosing the CBD seeds that match up with your desired effects, climate, and harvesting timeline, it’s time to get growing. Growing CBD from seed is not much different from your average gardening.
You can store CBD seeds in a dark, dry place for years before planting. But for the best results, it’s best to plant them within the first few years. To get things started, you will first need to germinate your CBD seeds using one of the following methods:
- Paper towel method
- Soaking method
- Rooting plugs and cubes
Germination typically takes 3-5 days and is complete within 7 days. You will know your seed is ready to be transplanted when a taproot forms. Then, it’s time to plant! CBD seeds should be planted about 1 inch deep when the soil reaches temperatures of around 50 degrees Fahrenheit, with no chance of frost, for ideal growth rates.

How to Harvest CBD
After caring for your CBD seeds, before you know it it will be time to harvest. When to harvest CBD strains depends on when you planted, the nutrient levels of your soil, and weather conditions. However, you can expect most plants to reach maturity around 3 months after being planted. If your goal is to harvest for CBD then we recommend choosing the latest possible harvest date, as it complies with federally approved levels of THC (0.3% or less).
