Having some seeds in the mix doesn’t mean your weed is bad. However, if your buds have a lot of seeds in them it might not be as potent as it could be. The potency can be significantly reduced as the plant’s energy is working towards reproduction and producing seeds instead of just the flower, cannabinoids (CBD, THC), trichome and terpene goodness.
Growing from home allows you to control many factors, so you can expect higher quality cannabis. If you are able to grow indoors, theres an even lower chance of your cannabis plants getting fertilized, as you would have to have the males in the tent/ grow box with them! When using a Grobo, you never have to worry about male plants being too close to your females.
If you cannot be bothered to come up with unique and interesting ideas for what to do with your cannabis seeds, then consider selling them to others to make a quick buck.
Technically, you can crush cannabis seeds into a powdered form and try smoking them. However, does that mean you should? The short answer is no.
However, it appears that your current weed stash is running out and so you look at your packet of cannabis seeds or bowl of marijuana stems and start to wonder if you can smoke them. After all, if the buds and flowers can get you buzzed, then should the seeds not have the same effect?
Consider selling them
Just make sure that you have enough information about the seeds you are selling.
If you have had these thoughts, then you are not alone! Most marijuana consumers at some point in their weed consumption journey start to wonder if it is safe to smoke cannabis seeds.
The most effective use of cannabis seeds is to grow a pot plant. Even if you are not an expert cannabis cultivator, growing weed does not require you to know rocket science.

One great thing about cannabis plants is that they don’t contain toxic compounds. That explains why many users who experience adverse effects often report mild and short-lasting side effects than many other herbal extracts. However, the equation suddenly changes when it comes to smoking, and worse yet, when smoking marijuana seeds.
Considering that marijuana seeds tend to crackle and pop upon ignition, smoking these seeds is not exactly a comfortable experience. An easy way out of this situation would be to ground the seeds into a fine powder and then smoke the powder. But why go through the trouble when the risks of smoking cannabis seeds far outweigh the benefits?
Smoking requires combustion, which implies that there are high-temperature conditions involved. The elevated temperatures could oxidize some of the toxic compounds in the air, including heavy metals like mercury and carcinogenic compounds like benzopyrene and benzanthracene.
ii. The experience is far from enjoyable.
Cannabis comes with tons of health benefits. However, how you enjoy those benefits depends on your delivery method. If possible, you should avoid smoking cannabis, as there are numerous inherent risks involved. And as has become abundantly clear throughout this post, the dangers of smoking cannabis are significantly greater than cannabis seeds.
If you’re a cannabis grower and don’t want your seeds to waste, you can consider composting them. You might also ground the seeds and add the powder to various food products like tea or butter. There’s also the option of making marijuana liqueur, where you place the seeds inside a liqueur containing an alcohol percentage of at least 40%. You then allow the mixture to sit for a week for any THC present in the seeds to transfer to the liqueur. Whatever you do, just ensure you don’t smoke the seeds.
In addition to its healing properties, cannabis also appeals to recreational users. The plant contains certain psychoactive compounds like THC, which are known to induce euphoria. But here’s the thing – cannabis seeds contain low concentrations of the medically beneficial compounds in marijuana.
Hermaphrodites are plants that contain both male and female reproductive parts on the same tree.
