Feminized Hemp Seeds & Starts
Cultivating hemp on your farm requires a significant investment of time, money, and resources. You’ll need to make many important decisions when growing hemp, but the most fundamental one is what hemp strain to grow. Once you have chosen your strain, it is important to pick the industrial hemp seed that will best help you reach your goals. You’ll still have to make many more decisions during the growing season, but starting out with the right seed genetics will set you up for a dream harvest.
Our genetics are best-in-class so you can buy confidently, knowing these strains are stable and farm proven.
Reliable Germination and Feminization
Once you have decided what hemp strain you want to plant, it’s crucial to invest in high-quality seeds that will give you the results you want. One of the most important factors in buying hemp seeds is making sure that the germination and feminization rates are optimal. Cannabinoids (CBD) are extracted from the flowers of female plants, so buying feminized seeds is crucial. Even a small percentage of male plants in a crop can drastically lower your cannabinoid harvest. We can’t overstate how important it is to buy hemp seeds from a reputable company. At High Grade Hemp Seed, our strains deliver germination rates of over 95% as well as feminization rates of over 99%.
Industrial Hemp Seeds and Starts
High Grade offers both seeds and starts for nearly all our hemp flower strains. Whether you choose seeds, starts, or a combination will depend on your preferences, your infrastructure, and your harvesting plan.
Farmers who are new to hemp farming, or who do not have a greenhouse infrastructure to protect new seedlings, should consider investing in starts rather than seeds. Using starts eliminates the need for a nursery and guarantees germination of your crop. Starts also give farmers a few extra weeks for the soil to warm up before planting. Farmers can plant their hemp starts right in the field after two weeks of hardening and start watching their new crop grow.
CBD Hemp Strains vs. CBG Hemp Strains
Another key decision is whether you want to grow for CBD or CBG. CBD (cannabidiol) continues to enjoy extreme popularity and growth as businesses and entrepreneurs add it to more wellness products. That being said, early studies of CBG (cannabigerol) are showing promising therapeutic results, leading some to believe that CBG may be the next super product to hit the market.
Farmers looking to cultivate hemp plants for CBG may be able to position themselves at the front of this growing trend. However, CBG poses some challenges. While CBD is fairly abundant in common hemp strains—especially in our high CBD industrial hemp seeds—CBG has historically been less abundant. That means farmers have had to grow more hemp plants in order to extract a comparable amount of CBG.
Our Matterhorn CBG hemp strain is an absolute game-changer, offering up to 15% CBG extraction. It is an excellent choice for farmers looking to diversify their crop. The Matterhorn has also been bred for a fine terpene profile of citrus, lemon, and lime. The smokable nature of this product offers farmers a dual market for the crop.
High Grade has both Matterhorn CBG and several standard-setting CBD strains, so no matter which cannabinoid you decide to focus on, there are excellent options available.
