    • Before making a purchase, you should check the laws in your region to ensure that purchasing and possessing cannabis seeds is legal.

Reading customer reviews and experiences is always a good method to assess the reliability and quality of a shop.
  6. Prepare the Growing Area:
    • Prepare the growing area by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting it to minimize pests and diseases.

  8. Planting and Care:
    • Plant the germinated seeds or seedlings into prepared pots or soil. Ensure they receive adequate water and nutrients, and monitor environmental conditions.
  9. Monitor and Care for Growth:
    • Regularly monitor the growth of your plants and watch for signs of issues such as pests, diseases, or nutrient deficiencies.
  10. Harvest and Drying:
    • Harvest your plants when they are mature, and dry the buds in a well-ventilated space before curing and storage.
