One option is to start with clones of other “mother” plants. You could get clones from friends or buy a few from a place like LaContes Clone Bar or Ballpark Holistic Dispensary, but it is important to remember that bringing clones into your grow might also introduce contaminants such a pests and disease to your other plants, though this is less of an issue when growing outdoors. Clones also tend to be less capable of handling stress and often experience transplant shock if not thoroughly rooted, so be sure to check your clones before purchase.
If you’ve got a collection of “bag seeds”, you can try sprouting them indoors for future transplant, but keep in mind that these seeds might not be as viable as the ones you’d get from a dispensary or breeder. They may thrive indoors, for example, then burn up outdoors or offer little resistance to pests.

Finding marijuana in Colorado is easy enough; finding seeds, on the other hand isn’t quite there yet. Though there are some very reputable stores where you can find high-quality cannabis seeds in Colorado, those places are not as common as the average dispensary. Because of the limited number of seed distributors in Colorado, many residents have turned to online orders.

S1 Feminized Hemp Seed for Growing
S1 seeds are the first selfed generation grown from the originally selected F1 phenotype. Our Mountain Mango feminized hemp seed is grown using our original F1 female that we selected a couple years ago, we make our seed from the same living plant now as then. It has proven to be a stable phenotype in the field, exhibiting consistent characteristics. Our Quick Kush feminized hemp seed is an F1 phenotype from the same parents as Mountain Mango but exhibits an entirely different phenotype.
Our S1 Cherry Wine feminized hemp seed is produced from the F1 phenotype created by the breeder of Cherry Wine – “Bohdi”. We make seed from the original living plant. Many of the Cherry variety of hemp seeds for growing in the market are S2, S3, S4…. generations, not produced from the original F1, but from an S1 or other selfed generation of feminized hemp seed, not the original living F1 phenotype, which contributes to an unstable crop in the field.

Evaluating CBD Hemp Strains for Growing
If someone looking to buy hemp seeds for growing asks, “What percentage of CBD will this hemp strain’s flower produce?”, they are asking the wrong question. This is a fact though: all hemp strains for growing CBD oil will test over the legal limit of 0.3% depending on growing conditions. Some of these growing conditions are:
- Vegetation period
- Number of days in flower before harvesting
- Latitude and photoperiod
- Ambient day and night temperatures
- Nutrient program
- Irrigation system
- Idiosyncrasies peculiar to the hemp strain
Because of the hemp regulations we work under, it makes a lot more sense to ask the question, “What percentage of CBD will this hemp strain’s flower produce when the legal level approaches 0.3%?”. Unfortunately, an exact answer to that question is virtually impossible to predict. For tips and additional information, check out our resources for growing hemp plants.
Growing conditions listed above vary day-to-day and year-to-year. Historical test results, done at least weekly, over several hemp growing seasons at a particular location would begin to more accurately answer the question based on empirical data – but this industry is so new, data like that is very rare.
