What about bag seeds?
Lots of new growers don’t start out with bought, “fancy" seeds. Many people will start with seeds they already have. Generally, they will get the odd seed in the cannabis they consume, so those can be kept aside for planting. These won’t be the best seeds in the world but if you originally consumed it, it can’t be too bad. And with love and care, even an average seed can turn into amazing cannabis!
