The immature seeds have green and white tonalities and generally, they do not get to germinate.
In addition the seeds of marijuana that are viable usually are hard to the tact and must be able to resist the pressure if you press them between the index finger and the thumb, unlike which they are not healthy, these usually break with facility and present cracks.
2- Test if your seeds float in water
An easy and cheap trick that will help you check that your seeds are worth it is whether they float in the water or not.
A glass of water, preferably distilled, and place the seeds on the surface and wait a few hours and then check them. If some seeds are left floating, they are probably of poor quality, while those that have sunk to the bottom are more likely to be healthy, so there is a greater chance that they will germinate.
3- Let them germinate
One of the most reliable ways to verify the quality of your seeds is to let them germinate, there are many methods you can implement for this, among the best known techniques is that which uses absorbent paper. In a short time, you will be out of doubt.
