Frequently Asked Questions

Cannabis seeds

Here you will find detailed answers to the most frequently asked questions about cannabis seeds, giving you a deeper insight into this fascinating aspect of cannabis culture. Whether you are a novice grower looking for basic information or an experienced cannabis grower looking to deepen your knowledge, we have the answers you need right here.

How long does it take for cannabis seeds to germinate?

It normally takes 1-3 days for a cannabis seed to sprout, but germination of cannabis seeds can take up to 10 days in some cases. We advise you to be patient and ensure perfect conditions for your seed(s) before you panic. Read more about germinating cannabis seeds here.

My cannabis seeds have not sprouted, what could be wrong?

Cannabis seeds are supposed to hatch within 10 days. If your cannabis seeds have not hatched within this period, please contact our customer service. Make sure you include order number, method of germination and photos in the e-mail. This will allow us to deal with your complaint quickly. If a cannabis seed does not hatch within that period, it could be due to:

  • Improper storage – read below how to store cannabis seeds ‘How (long) can I store my cannabis seeds?
  • Germination conditions – provide a warm, dark and humid environment in which the seed can germinate. Plant the seed about 2 cm deep, and not in too compact soil (this can happen if the soil is too moist or too hard pressed).

My cannabis seed germinated, but the seed pod did not fall off. What can I do?

This sometimes happens and is not necessarily a problem. A germinated cannabis seed can sometimes have difficulty releasing the pod if the seed is older than two years or if it has been planted too shallow, or in soil that is too compact. In the latter two cases, the cannabis seed may have germinated too quickly and may have dried out before it had a chance to release the pod. If this happens, you can try moistening the seed with small drops of water. Try to gently free the developing seedling by slowly pulling on both sides of the split seed pod. As soon as you feel resistance (for example, because the pod is still attached to the developing seedling) wait and re-moisten. This process can take a few days and does not guarantee a succesfull final result. Still, we recommend letting nature do its work and leaving the pod in place. After all, it does little to no harm and can prevent mistakes.

How (long) can I store my cannabis seeds?

If stored properly, cannabis seeds have a very long shelf life. In theory, you can keep them for at least 10 years. Yet the success rate of germination for seeds starts to decrease significantly after two years of storage. That’s why we recommend storing Amsterdam Genetics seeds no longer than two years before use. If you do decide to store your cannabis seeds for longer than two years (for example, to preserve the genetics) make sure you have perfect conditions. Store the seeds in a cool, dark environment such as a fridge. Do not remove the seeds from the fridge before you them to germinate, as temperature fluctuations can affect the germination capacity of the seeds. Remove the cannabis seeds from the fridge at least 24 hours before planting once you decide to germinate them. This allows the seeds to adapt to the ambient temperature, increasing the chances of germination.

How do I germinate old cannabis seeds?

Cannabis seeds can theoretically be used for a very long time, even after being stored for years. To do so, of course, they must be stored correctly. Yet after two years, the chances of successful germination drop significantly. Nevertheless, some seeds can still germinate after years of storage. It will probably be a bit trickier than germinating ‘fresh seeds’ though. Experts recommend soaking older seeds for 24 hours in water at 22°C, with a few drops of hydrogen peroxide to soften the pod. Keep a close eye on the seeds during those first 24 hours, as they can drown if they open and they are left in the water for too long.

What is the difference between regular (photoperiod) and autoflowering cannabis seeds?

‘Normal’ photoperiod seeds enter the flowering period only when the days get shorter than 14 hours. In nature, this happens naturally and gradually. In indoor growing, growers usually shorten the daylight period with a timer attached to their lights. In the process, they switch back from 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness for the vegetative state, to 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night-time darkness per day, causing the plants to flower. Self-flowering (autoflowering) cannabis plants do not need this natural rhythm to flower. By crossing these plants with the cannabis variety ruderalis, they will flower automatically after a few weeks, regardless of the number of hours of light they receive. Read more about the differences and benefits of autoflowering seeds here

How long will it take for my plant to flower?

Autoflowering seeds will flower automatically after a few weeks, usually 3-5. Photoperiod seeds start flowering only when daylight decreases to 12 hours. When growing indoors, this can be done manually. If you grow outdoors, the sun will cause the plant to flower around September, when the days are a lot shorter.

How do I know when the plant is ready to be harvested?

Each strain has its own flowering period depending on the genetics, so there is no ready-made answer to this question. Fortunately, there are ways to determine whether a plant is ready for harvest.

  • First, there are the pistils, the white flowering hairs on the flowers of the plant. When about 80% of the pistils dry and turn orange/brown at the end of the flowering period, you have a good chance that the buds are almost ready for harvest.
  • To be absolutely sure that the plant is ready for harvest, it is best to look through a magnifying glass at the trichomes on the buds. Trichomes are the sticky vesicles on the surface of the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant that contain the active ingredients most cannabis users look for. If they are still translucent, it is too early to harvest: THC and other compounds have yet to form in the trichomes. Cannabis plants peak in their cannabinoid content – reaching the perfect harvest time for many – when about 70% of all trichomes are milky in colour, with a few translucent and a few orange-yellow ones left in between. From there, the THC in the plant will gradually be converted by oxidation into the more narcotic cannabinoid CBN.

What kind of guarantee do you give on your product?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer any guarantee on our products. This is because we supply a natural product, where the actions, care and attention with which consumers treat, store and process the product has a huge impact on our products. This is also stated in our terms and conditions. Read our warranty conditions as part of our Terms and Conditions.

What effect does the final product have?

The effects you can experience after using our carefully selected genetics depend heavily on which strain you consume. For more information on the effects of cannabis , see this blog on Indica, Sativa and Hybrid strains, or check out the effects we describe alongside all our cannabis strains on their product pages.

Can you grow cannabis anywhere?

No, unfortunately, you cannot grow cannabis just anywhere. Therefore, customers from areas where cannabis cultivation is banned should keep cannabis seeds as souvenirs for collectors. Amsterdam Genetics cannot be held responsible for the actions of people who do not comply with the laws and regulations applicable in their countries.

Germination policy

At Amsterdam Genetics, we set high standards for the quality and viability of our cannabis seeds. All cannabis seeds under our own brand are sold only after achieving a germination rate of more than 95%. This strict testing policy also applies to our suppliers, who must achieve a minimum of 90%.
We take the storage of our cannabis seeds seriously to ensure their quality. Despite our confidence in the vitality of our products, we recognise that cannabis seeds are living products and external factors such as germination conditions can vary. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that every cannabis seed will germinate.

To deal with your complaint, we need the following:

  • Your order number
  • Indicate which species(s) of cannabis seeds have not germinated and how many
  • A description of your germination method
  • A photo or video as evidence is required

Returns related to a complaint are at your own expense. If we find your complaint justified, we will ship the new seeds to you at our expense.

General Terms and Conditions

  • Problems with germination should be reported within 60 days of purchase, with all seeds from that order having been tried.
  • Cannabis seeds are living material and cannot be guaranteed at 100%. Our suppliers are required to maintain a germination rate of 90%.
  • We advise customers to purchase 10% more seeds than necessary to accommodate natural drop-outs.


  • Free or promotional cannabis seeds are excluded from substitution.
  • Purchase of one blister or pack containing 3 or 5 cannabis seeds are excluded from replacement or guarantee of germination.
  • Cannabis seeds that have already been replaced under this policy are not eligible for further replacement.
    All replacement cannabis seeds will be from Amsterdam Genetics.

If you consistently experience problems with seeds from different growers, it is likely that the problem lies with your germination method, not the seeds. In such a case, we reserve the right not to offer replacement seeds. Smaller or paler seeds are not necessarily an indication of poor quality; colour and size do not affect germination.


What are the shipping costs?

See the ‘delivery options’ section for an overview of shipping costs.

How can I change my delivery address?

Unfortunately, if your order has already been processed, the address can no longer be changed. While your order is being processed, you can indicate whether you want the order to be delivered to another address.
