cracking cannabis seeds

Do this next time.
Soak the seeds in a cup of water for a day (24hours)
Then take all seeds that Sank to the bottom of the cup and plant them Gently into soil so they can grow.
If they Don’t sink, even after fiddling your finger in the cup, then They most likely will not work.

Hope that helps ya some.

1st. if it takes more then 2 weeks you can almost Garentee that the seed will Not work, either you didn’t germenate then properly or the seeds are No good.

You obviosly found this site in order to post this question, so Look around, all the answere’s are here!

I really don’t know how much i would trust that Friends Knoledge.

This will be enough to make a lot of tiny scratches on the protective outer layer of the shell, allowing moisture to get inside much more easily.

So, the question of how to germinate old cannabis seeds translates to: how do you help moisture get inside your old seeds? The obvious first choice is to pre-soak them before germination.

The problem with these stimulators is that you never know the correct dosage. The information shared on marijuana forums is anecdotal, and legitimate studies have only been performed on other crops. So, if you decide to use any of these additives, do some research or ask other growers, and always err on the side of caution.

4. Remove the Ridge

The problem with very old seeds is that their outer shell dries out over time, and it gets more and more difficult for water to penetrate them. As such, you, the grower, must take some steps to facilitate this process.

The ridge is quite prominent on the seed. It connects the two halves of the outer shell, and when the embryo pushes against them, it’s this ridge that cracks. However, in older seeds, it’s too hardened by time and needs to be cut off.

If you want to successfully germinate cannabis seeds—whether fresh or old—you must satisfy the following conditions: warmth, darkness, and moisture. The first two are important, but it’s moisture that causes the dormant embryo inside to begin its life cycle.

This procedure is similar to cracking because you’re forcefully opening the seed—not by applying pressure this time, but by using a sharp knife. Please consider this a last resort—suitable only when all else fails.
