The Best Hemp Seeds for Sale in California

California is an ideal state to grow hemp for CBD or CBG. The Golden State is home to many different microclimates and soil compositions, so farmers must do their homework to determine which hemp seeds will perform best in the unique conditions of their farms.

Are you interested in farming hemp for CBD or CBG? It starts with choosing the right hemp seeds. Contact our representatives to learn more about our hemp seeds for sale in California.

We Care About Hemp Seed Genetics

At High Grade Hemp Seed, we are obsessed with developing hemp seeds with the best genetic qualities for farmers in California and around the world. We’ve worked with farmers and scientists for years to crossbreed a wide variety of hemp strains that each offer unique benefits to farmers. Our seeds:

  • Produce consistently high yields of CBD or CBG
  • Are robust enough to handle tough weather
  • Comes in early finisher varieties to give farmers more planting flexibility
  • Are feminized to save labor cost and increase trichome yield
  • Offer a pleasing variety of terpene profiles
  • Seeds or starts available for most varieties
  • Are reliably compliant

High Yields of CBD or CBG

Planting hemp requires a significant investment. Make sure it pays off by buying hemp seeds in California with a proven record of high yields of CBD or CBG. At High Grade, we’ve been around since 2011, and our hemp strains have proven again and again that they can give farmers a great return on investment.

Our industry-leading Berry Blossom strain, for example, offers reservoirs of resin without sacrificing health and robustness. Our Matterhorn CBG was bred specifically to produce CBG. While traditional hemp plants typically provide a 1% CBG yield, Matterhorn CBG has consistently yielded up to 15% CBG while keeping its percentage of THC staggeringly low.

Hardiness No Matter the Weather

Though California is famous for its friendly weather, it does have its share of weather-related challenges, from high heat days in the Central Valley to cold snaps up north and the whipping Santa Ana winds in Southern California.

Our hemp seed strains are bred to be hardy no matter where you live in California. In fact, hemp is known for its low-water needs, which makes it an excellent choice for farmers who live in drought-risk areas and/or in areas with expensive water costs.

If you worry about challenging weather conditions, try our Merlot strain. Besides a well-earned reputation for robustness, Merlot offers a great terpene profile of freshly opened tennis balls and orange peel with notes of chocolate and cherries jubilee.

Early Finishers and Autoflowers

Our hemp strains allow farmers to take full advantage of California’s long growing season. Almost all of our hemp strains can be purchased as early finishers, allowing you to plant multiple harvests in a season and get the most out of every acre.

Our Autoflower strain is ideal for farmers looking for early finishing hemp that can allow them to grow multiple harvests or successfully stagger harvests. Autoflower gives customers a sweet and spicy terpene profile.

Feminized Seeds in California

As you start your search for hemp seeds in California, you’ll come across regular seeds and feminized seeds. At High Grade, we offer only feminized hemp seeds. With a guaranteed feminization rate of 99.8%, our seeds will take away much of the worry of male plants pollinating your females and lowering your CBD or CBG yield. Feminized seeds also save you the labor cost of sexing every plant and culling the males.

A Great Selection of Terpene Profiles

Are you looking to grow a smokable hemp product? Then the terpene profile of your crop is an important selling point to your downstream customers. Our hemp strains offer a huge variety of profiles. From floral to fruity to unabashedly skunky, our terpene profiles can please virtually any customer.

Consider our Red Bordeaux, which offers a terp profile of fresh cut strawberries and crushed lavender. Alternatively, our Cherry Wine will give your customers a cherry floral frame layered with pine skunk undertones. (Yes, many customers love skunky terpenes.)

Hemp Seeds or Starts

Customers can choose to invest in seeds or starts for almost all of our hemp strains. Seeds are a great option for experienced hemp farmers who have a greenhouse infrastructure and who know the ins-and-outs of germination.

Newer farmers or those without a greenhouse structure will likely benefit from investing in hemp starts. These germinated plants come with a strong taproot, which will allow the plant to be more resilient to environmental stresses.

Legal Compliance You Can Trust

Hemp farmers must ensure that their plants stay below the 0.3% THC threshold or they risk losing their crop. The amount of THC a plant produces is strongly affected by the seed’s genetics. Our hemp strains have all been thoroughly tested and consistently stay below the threshold (though farmers must continually test their crops, especially close to harvest).

Our largest plot has flowers swelling from top to bottom, and you can smell our farm for miles @highgradehempseed. Fast growing and fast flowering varieties don’t usually have high terpene traits, but @highgradehempseed has pulled it off. She is very resistant to our high winds/cold nights here in Montrose, CO.
