Store Cannabis Seeds Like a Pro

If you have cannabis seeds, you probably want to store them properly to
make sure they survive for a long time. If stored properly, cannabis seeds can
last years. This article will discuss the best way to store cannabis seeds. If
you’re a grower, you probably want to make sure your seeds are as safe as
possible, and here are some tips to help you keep your cannabis seeds safe.
Let’s get started!

Silica Gel

When storing your cannabis seeds, it’s important to keep them in a low-
humidity environment. This will help preserve the germination and growth rate
of your seeds for months or years. Moreover, you can store seeds for up to 10
years and still get nearly 100% germination rate. The best desiccant to use is
silica gel. This type of desiccant can be refilled multiple times. A silica gel
pack can be recharged by placing it in a low-temperature oven (110c) for 15
minutes. Its color changes back to cobalt blue.

Seeds are stored in plastic bags or cans with silica gel. You can place these
seeds in the refrigerator, but it is best to store them in a corner of the fridge.
Another option is to store them in your backyard or basement, where the
temperature will remain consistent. Keep in mind that the best humidity levels
for storing cannabis seeds are 20-30%. Higher humidity levels may trigger
germination, but too much moisture is too drying for the seeds.

For best seed longevity, seeds must be stored in a dark, cool place. This is
because light triggers germination. When seeds are exposed to light, they
begin using stored nutrients. However, if light is present, there may not be
enough nutrients for germination. In addition, seeds should not be exposed to
excessive heat or humidity, since they may not be properly preserved. It is
best to store cannabis seeds in a cool, dark place where the temperature
remains constant.

Analogue Film Tubes

One of the best ways to store cannabis seeds is in analogue film tubes. During
cultivation, some growers label the analogue film tubes with the strain name to distinguish which seeds belong to which cannabis strain. These seed
receptacles should be placed in a container that can keep the seeds dry.
Some growers add silica gel to prevent mold from growing inside the

Plastic bags aren’t ideal for storing seeds because they are not airtight. They
can absorb up to 25 percent of the humidity and temperature of their
surroundings. You can store seeds in a glass jar by vacuum sealing the
plastic bag and placing it inside of a glass jar. You can also use paper
envelopes to store the seeds. These can can keep out light, but they should
be placed inside a better container like a mason jar, which can also provide light

If you don’t have a refrigerator, you can store cannabis seeds in an opaque
airtight plastic bottle. The ideal humidity level for cannabis seeds is between
10 and 20 percent. It is best to store the seeds in an airtight container that
doesn’t allow light to enter. This way, you can be sure that your cannabis
seeds will last longer. You can also store cannabis seeds in the dark inside

Vacuum-sealed Plastic Bags

When storing cannabis seeds, there are several ideal containers. You can use
an airtight mason jar, vacuum-sealed plastic bags, or glass jars. The best
containers for cannabis seeds are those that are airtight and light-proof.
Vacuum-sealed plastic bags are better than glass jars for freezer storage. To
keep the seeds at room temperature, you can place them in an opaque
plastic bag or a desiccant pack. Make sure to keep them in a cool, dark

While plastic bags may be the cheapest option, they aren’t airtight. They
won’t protect your seeds from fluctuations in temperature or humidity. Even
vacuum-sealed plastic bags aren’t completely airtight. Putting them inside
glass jars will protect them from light. When in doubt, keep the seeds in a
dark, cool place where light will not damage the seeds.

Mylar bags are a wonder of long-term food storage. In principle, Mylar is a
metallized polyester film. Using a vacuum-sealed plastic bag will prevent
moisture from passing through the bag. Without moisture, goods may begin
to mold and spoil during transportation. Some of these items can be
packaged with desiccant.

Airtight lightproof box

Investing in an airtight, lightproof box to store cannabis seeds is an excellent
idea for ensuring that your precious marijuana genetics are safe from environmental
conditions. While you may have the best of intentions, not all seeds will end up
in the ground for planting. You will have leftover seeds and need to ensure
they’re stored properly to avoid fungus growth and other problems.
Furthermore, seeds exposed to extreme changes in temperature and humidity
can cause them to sprout.

If you don’t have an airtight lightproof box to store cannabis seeds, you can
use a plastic envelope. However, it’s advisable to avoid plastic lids, which may
let in small amounts of moisture over time. An airtight box can be made out of
a vacuum sealed bag or a food grade desiccant satchel. Alternatively, you
can store seeds in an opaque box, buried underground.

When storing cannabis seeds, you should use an airtight, light-proof box,
rather than a plastic one. Even if your seeds have been stored in a plastic
bag, you should make sure that you seal the box tightly. The moisture in a
plastic bag can cause mold growth. To prevent mold and mildew growth, keep
the airtight box away from direct sunlight. Keep in mind that plastic and glass
boxes may leak moisture, so you should always use a vacuum sealer if you
have a vacuum sealing machine.

Cool Basement

A cool basement is an excellent place to store cannabis seeds. A cool
basement will help to protect your seeds from heat, cold, and humidity
fluctuations. You can purchase insulation and desiccants that will help keep
the temperature even.


If you have purchased cannabis seeds online, you likely received them in a
sealed package. You should keep them in that container. If possible, try to
vacuum seal them to keep them dry. If not, you can use a glass jar and an
airtight lighting closure. This way, the seeds will remain safe and sound for
months. But, if you’re looking to store cannabis seeds for long-term storage,
there are better options.

When you’re not using them right away, you can put them in the freezer. The
seeds will stay fresh and safe for a couple of weeks or even months if stored
properly. If you’re storing them for longer than three months, it’s best to put
them in the refrigerator. While refrigerators are usually dark and dry, the
humidity in them varies. It’s important to put a desiccant inside the container
and store it at the back of the fridge, where humidity is the lowest.

The best way to store cannabis seeds in the freezer is to place them on a shelf
that’s low enough to prevent the seeds from thawing out. You can also use a
mini fridge. Cannabis seeds need to be kept at low temperatures, so a
refrigerator with a capacity of 4 L is sufficient. However, it’s important to note
that cannabis seeds should not be frozen again once they’ve been defrosted.
