How to Grow Your FREE the V - THCV Seeds

Before growing FREE the V - plan ahead for the '18 Hour Flower / Semi-Auto Trait'!

FREE the V may be harvested within 120-150 days (4-5 months) of seed germination when grown outdoors without any light manipulation. Free the V can be harvested as early as July when seeds are germinated in March. But if you wish to grow bigger plants that finish later in the season, you can easily achieve this by hanging a $10 solar landscape spotlight over the plant to keep the plant in vegetative stage longer.

STEP 1 - Germinating your Seeds

NOTE: The technique below is 'my' technique that usually has a 100% seed germination success rate. But, you can use whatever technique you wish to sprout your seeds. If you do use a heat mat, make sure to also use a THERMOSTAT to control the heat. If you do not use a thermostat, you could easily overheat your seeds and kill them!!!!

NOTE 2: The seeds will also germinate if planted directly into moist soil, but there is a risk of failure if it is too cold. This is not recommended until night temperatures stay above 50 degrees F.

  • Wet 4 squares worth of paper towel in your chlorine-free clean glass of water (use drinking water that is not chlorinated tap water).
  • Fold your wet paper towel into a square that is 1/2 the size of a paper towel square
  • Spread your FREE the V seeds on the wet paper towel so no seeds are touching each other
  • Fold the paper towel in half to cover the seeds, so the seeds are like the filling of a paper towel sandwich
  • Place the wet paper towel (with seeds in it) into a ziplock bag, and seal it.
  • Place the ziplock bag in between 2 dinner plates, like a clam shell
  • Place the plates on your heat mat, and insert the thermostat temperature sensor inside the plates (where the seeds are)
  • Set your thermostat temperature setting to 85 degrees F
  • Throw a clean bath towel over the plates like a little cocoon for your seeds
  • Leave your seeds alone for 36 hours - when you come back - they should all be sprouted and ready for transplanting to your soil!
