Good bag Seeds vs Bought Seeds

    This may sound like a stupid question but I had to ask.
    How much of a gain do you get by buying seeds vs. just getting some seeds from some kick-ass commercial weed you may have?
    I am assuming that you will get a MUCH better quality (i.e. more potent) plant by purchasing some quality seeds so I did. I actually purchased 5 kinds (Northern Lights, Papaya, White Rhino, AK-48, and Bubblecius from Nirvana) but I don't know when, or which I will plant. I started to get just one strain, but I couldn't decide which. Hell, I had a hard time whittling down to 5.

    So anyway,
    I am hoping the differance is grand and not just a little difference.

    I have already learned ALOT from this site.

    when you buy seeds from a bank, you are getting just that, a company that makes seeds. when you get them from a bag they are a left over from the pot in there and not intended to be there (plus they are probably hermies also). if you are having a herd time deciding on what to grow, try one of each or two for that matter. NL and Rhino is going to really mess you up. have not tried the others. gl on your grow and keep us informed.

    The best plant I ever saw was grown from a bag seed... It was actually salvaged from some vaprized waste...

    in your opinion what have been the most potent u have experienced ?

    When you buy seeds from a seed bank, you're paying for the genetics. The mother and father plants were selected from huge batches and grown to be resistant to mold and etc.

    If you plant the AK-48, let me know how it goes. I'm about to start growing some AK-47 but I was really curious about putting some of those AK-48's in my next ScrOG.

    I would grow half northern lights, half Papaya. No odor (except a fruity aroma with Papaya). Northern Lights is going to mess you up, and is good to relax... Papaya I've heard AMAZING things... I read somewhere it was a remake of KC Brains - MANGO but they had actually made it better.

    Thats my suggestion!!!

    Haven't tried any of the others sorry.

    truth be told.... you shouldnt get caught up on this seed is better than that seed

    because in the end....all strains were created from bagseed.

    how you think we get shit from overseas and shit? from a seed in a bag they bought overseas

    was that indoor our outdoor?

    very true. how did breeders start some of their shit? i have seen some great growers or breeders say they got some seeds off an old grower that had been growing his own strain for years. not to knock quality genetics either cuz i am sure they are worth their weight in gold too. some say bagseed is cool because you never know when you will get a hidden gem. also i am not talking bout 1000 seed shwag hay dirt shit, but maybe 1 seed in a bag of some good shit. also maybe some stuff would be better if grown and harvested/cured properly.

    yeah ive seen some bagseed grows that turn out phenominal. you dont get the assured quality that you do with ordered genetics, but if the bud you got it from was pretty dank, then there is a possibility of having some serious nug come from bagseed

    Whats Bagseed? Is that a new strain?:mrgreen:

    Mindmelted Well-Known Member

    Best i have had is white rhino,aurora indica,thc bomb and papaya.
    That's just my 2 cents.Which does not mean much.

    JTSBossMan Active Member

    What, you guys smoke more than one kind? I just smoke the purple parts....

    k2696 Active Member

    im pretty sure the mexican cartels arent going to spend time with shitty seeds...and when they press the bricks they want the bud with the most thc content so even when it gets to us all shitty...there is still a mass of thc buildup and thats y reg gets u stoned.....im pretty sure the mexican cartels grow some of the best weed u can buy(i know if i was a drug loard with billions i would buy the best seeds) thats y when u grow bagseed u get bomb as shit......i would love to conferm this tho

    suedonimn Well-Known Member

    When you think about it... commercial weed that comes from Mexico is some BOMB ass sativa. When they plant them they don't seperate the males... so you get tons of seeds, but the weed is bagged up wet compressed to like 1/3 the size it was unpressed, put in a box, or gas tank shipped for miles and miles all the while curing and drying. By the time you smoke it that weed has traveled miles in unsavory conditions, smells like hay, and could be a year or more old. The stuff still gets you stoned!!! If you have any viable seeds plant them and take care of them you will have quality smoke GUARANTEED!!!

    Not all strains were created from bagseed. Breeders have traveled across the world--to Africa, the Caribbean, south east Asia, etc--to find land race seeds to add to their breeding stock.

    Individual cannabis strains have been selectively bred over dozens if not hundreds of generations to maximize individual traits of interest to the breeder, such as yield, potency, time to harvest, etc. To imply that all strains are the same is like saying all dog breeds are the same because they were all originally bred from wolves. Daschunds and grey hounds are both breeds of dogs and I know which one I'm putting my money on at the track.

    This is not to say you might not get some great phenos from bagseed (especially if the bags are CA medical grade) but it's more of a crap shoot. Buying seeds from reputable dealers should take a lot of the luck out. Seeds from reputable dealers will yield more consistent phenos. F1 hybrids will also tend to grow faster and yield more than either of the parents.
