We have covered some of the best cannabis seeds for both beginners and experienced growers, but this topic takes the cake, as not all marijuana strains are hardy or easy to grow. Though it might seem like common sense to pick some easy starter-level pot seeds, some of the most powerful strains in the world don’t offer that benefit. It might come as a surprise, but most types of weed that exist today have been bred to thrive in various conditions, but there are still a select few that prefer super-hot and humid conditions, or they just won’t flourish.

The benefits of intense heat and humidity

Since no one wants to struggle without reason, you are probably wondering why you would ever want cannabis seeds that might prove to be challenging, but if you were to see the often breathtaking difference in both aesthetics and effects, you might just change your mind. Most experienced growers know that their pot seeds and plants do quite well during the hottest summers on record, but most don’t realize how much of an impact that additional heat can offer.

When you provide a marijuana plant with the powerful UV lights that are necessary for growth, the effect is relatively straightforward. However, when a thick layer of humidity is added, it helps to protect the leaves from damage and drying and enhances the quality of light and the rate at which your plant absorbs those rays. Since this element is so essential to the plant’s health, it only makes sense that these extra “supplements” would provide a boost that cannot be mimicked in any other way.

Is it worth the investment?

For some consumers, almost any kind of cannabis will do, and for them, this kind of investment might not be a worthwhile endeavor. However, for those who pride themselves in the craft, and come to the table equipped with experience, knowledge, and the right tools, this journey can be an exciting one. The results of which can land you with some of the most exotic and rare strains in the world for your own personal pleasure.

Is it expensive?

Finding the best marijuana seeds can be a costly endeavor, as once you settle on a strain, you will need to find a reliable supplier, and sometimes that can require long-distance locations that scale the globe. Though you might find a few of these expert levels cannabis seeds for a fair price, many of them can sell for well above $100 each.
