Why Choose Colorado Breeders Depot for Buying Wholesale CBD Hemp Seeds and CBG Hemp Seeds?


We have been a primary destination for CBD hemp seed and CBG hemp seed for years now. Our head of operations, John Kalosinis, has been involved in growing cannabis for over twenty years, and almost a decade in hemp farming and breeding. Our team has a collective of about twenty years working with in the cannabis industry, each member a proud extension of a gigantic foundation of knowledge that was used to form Colorado Breeders Depot. Through the evolution of cannabis’ place in our society, we have bloomed into dedicated hemp cannabis professionals that excel at the perfection of both genetics and cultivation.

Our seeds? We made them ourselves because everything available was unregulated, disappointing garbage. Our culture? Our team was part of a larger legislative body that helped form current hemp regulations in Colorado. We frequently partner up with local farmers to help sell their crop, we befriend competitors for the greater good of the hemp industry, we dedicate ourselves to our customers no matter how small. We are invested through and through. From seed to smoke, our company continuously puts out products which stand out among a huge selection of competitors. Buying hemp seeds shouldn’t be a gamble for quality or genetics. For us, we daily strive to grow premium hemp flower and provide farmers and hobbyists alike with the highest quality hemp seeds available.

We Stand By Farmers

Colorado Breeders Depot is as much a farmer-forward network as we are a hemp seed and flower supplier. We commit ourselves to the success of anyone who chooses to plant our seeds. With a customer service team standing by from 9 to 5 every single business day, ready to answer any questions about growing CBD flower from our hemp seeds. Helping farmers big and small succeed in harvesting premium hemp crop gives us such joyful purpose, and we want that to be the quality our clients value in us.

Some companies offer their version of a germination guarantee, or offer to test your grown crop for potency, but we have found that testing for potency in-house can lead to potential bias and can potentially result in a loss of trust. We rely on third party labs to provide our COAs and our terpene profiles as well as our germination rate tests. We don’t guarantee any percentage of germination, because there are just too many external factors that influence whether or not a seed will survive— from airborne pests to soil size, to light, water, CO2 content and beyond. Because there is so much to consider when planting seeds, we do guarantee troubleshooting for anyone failing to meet our posted germination rates for each strain. Our head grower will talk to you directly, asking about your process and setup, and offering recommendations to get best results. We will also send more seeds if there is any continued failure to germinate any strain.

Being available the entirety of any growing season means that our customers know they can count on us to be there. We want you to triumph. We want you to succeed so bad, we send an extra 10% seed volume to any order just in case there should be any germinating issues. When you harvest, we succeed.

Why did we get into seeds?

In 2014, the hemp industry was akin to the Wild West. Lack of regulation allowed for seeds to be sold with untested and unreliable genetics, meaning you never really knew what sort of strain or phenotype would sprout. Many seed suppliers were failing to take proper precaution against unwanted crosspollination. This nightmare led to our lead grower, John, to get fed up with trying to find decently sourced seeds for his transition from growing high-THC cannabis to hemp.

They say that if you can’t get something done right, do it yourself. So, John put his extensive breeding knowledge to begin producing one of the first batches of seeds using ultra-sealed, indoor grow rooms and enacting best practices for avoiding the potential transfer of unwanted pollen. Generation after generation, the genetics became more stable and eventually John had created the now-beloved OG strains of hemp flower.

The desire by many farmers to use what could be considered “craft” seeds led to him to begin selling them off at rates too fast to keep up with. By dedicating more resources to seed production in 2018, we were finally able to meet the incredible demand for both feminized and non-feminized seeds. The genetics’ consistency speaks for itself. And our customers will echo that time and time again, turning to us for time-tested strain lineages and lab-certified accurate characteristics that translate from grow to grow.

Finding the best hemp seeds for you


Whether you’ve got 20 acres to dedicate to cultivation or you’re working in a tiny indoor grow room setup, we can help you find exactly what works best for you. Location and climate both play a huge role in the choosing of hemp seed genetics. Some of our strains are hardier than others and some require extra amounts of TLC and time. Some strains need different temperatures and light schedules to fully hit their ultimate potential. Because we boast such a wide array of genetics available, the germination times and harvest times are non-uniform, so reach out to us, even if you’re working a massive number of plants. We are happy to make recommendations and answer questions based on our years of experience growing thousands and thousands of pounds of hemp.

For small-batch growers or customers just learning how to nurse a beautiful hemp plant into a bud-ridden powerhouse, we recommend feminized seeds to ensure the biggest yield per plant possible. An all-female crop maximizes available space, and thus removes the need to remove male plans or worry about cross-pollination risks. Novice growers should consider Auto-flowering strains, because they won’t fail with a missed lighting schedule or other minor learning mistakes and are by far the most sure-fire seeds we offer.

Can I Cultivate Hemp Flower Anywhere?

While it’s true that there is no better time than the present to start growing and investing in hemp’s future in our environmentally dredged society, you won’t be able to just plant an acre of hemp seeds in any old random plot of land. Latitude and longitude have a huge hand in both the success of a crop and its ability to maintain federally required THC levels.

Quality soil is of the utmost importance. Nutrient-rich, loose-packed and heavily aerated soil is by far the idea setting from which hemp can grow. Hemp is a plant that performs a function known as phytoremediation, which means that it will absorb whatever is present in the soil it’s planted within. Having unhealthy, sandy, tightly packed and chemically adulterated soil are all factors that can lead to a crop failure.
Finding the right growing season for your location is important, because light and temperature matter for anyone planted hemp outside of a sealed, indoor grow facility. And even indoor grow rooms need humidity control during certain seasons to maintain an ideal soil pH level as well as carbon dioxide content. Be sure you are situated in the best possible ways by doing some research and potentially a soil test, as just tossing hemp seeds into a compost pile and expecting anything to happen just isn’t a feasible way to go out planting hemp. For those deadest on growing despite potentially extreme temperatures or uneven photic exposure, be sure to check out our Auto Flower strains. And be sure to check out some additional info we have about things to know before planting our premium hemp seeds.

What Are Feminized Seeds?

Feminized seeds are exactly what the name suggests: seeds that only germinate female plants. No male plants means no need to cull, no accidental pollination, and more flower per seed because they all should yield quality buds. This is ideal for our premium indoor strains or anyone working with a space limitation or resources for single, small-batch grows. We breed our own feminized genetics by stressing a female plant enough that it to develops the sexual features of a male plant including pollen. This allows a structurally-female plant to pollenate another female plant. The offspring of this female-to-female pollination will produce seeds that lack any male chromosomes. Using a chemical agent will then allow these feminized plants to produce all-feminized seeds, continuing a special cycle that has become ubiquitous in modern hemp farming.

Is There A Benefit To Using Feminized Seeds?


By planting feminized seeds instead of regular, non-feminized seeds, a grower can avoid the sexing process all together because the gender of every plant is already known to be all female. All feminized seeds come from elite clone genetics meaning these strains are the truly top-tier available hemp genes. Growing feminized plants saves time, resources and allows space to be used effectively by only germinating the plants needed produce a desired product, usually hemp flower. For a farmer not interested in breeding their own plants and growing a single strain, this is the easiest and most popular methodology for seed sourcing.

What Does Non-Feminized Mean?

The word “regular” is a suitable substitute for ‘non-feminized’ when it comes to basic terminology. These seeds contain non-altered, natural genetics and will produce both male and female plants. Oftentimes this means a purer genetic line from the lineage that produced the seeds, and this is a desirable quality for breeders looking to produce their own hybrids or experiment with breeding new seeds. Non-feminized seeds are also purer in the sense that no chemical alterations are used in the production of fresh seeds. Farmers pick these when experimenting with building their own strains as well as looking to easily sex and clone certain plants.

What Can I Do with My New Hemp Plants?

Hemp is a fortuitous crop in our time— finally being lauded for its multifaceted byproducts and its relatively consistent production patterns. Industrial hemp fiber is projected to soon become one of the most abundantly grown agricultural crops in the world, as countries have wizened up to the strength and reliability of hemp fibers. Or you can smoke your plants by harvesting the mature, flowered buds, trimming and curing them. All our strains have different cannabinoid profiles that can be found on their product pages above.

Extracting cannabinoid oil either using solvents or low-heat and heavy pressure is another way to harness all the byproducts hemp has to offer. Hempseed oil is produced by smashing ultra-oily seeds produced by the plant. You can cook with the cured buds, infuse them into a tea, or shake the snowy white, kief-laden trichomes off of the leaves.

Another interesting way farmers and breeders use hemp is to cross genetics with other strains of cannabis. Some medical marijuana breeders cross hemp with high-THC to try and create a plant that contains as many possible major cannabinoids as possible. Hemp breeders specifically try to create gorgeous looking flower properties with high CBD, CBG or CBN. Taste and smell play a huge role, so cross-breeding for a unique terpene profile has become more and more popular lately.

Is Auto Flower Easier To Grow?


We believe that growing our Auto Flower strains requires less experience, less attention to detail and less resources. A large percentage of cannabis varieties of all kids require an extremely specific schedule for receiving various levels of light. Cannabis farming has gotten so advanced that growers know exactly how much light to give and for how long, but for someone less experienced or with less available time to dedicate to crop care, this can become tedious over a long harvest cycle.
Auto Flower is a new breeding mutation that makes the life cycle of the hemp plant incredibly predictable, efficient, and quick. The auto-flowering genetic characteristic means the plant automatically changes from the vegetative state to a flowering state, without having to reduce daylight hours. The flowering cycle begins and ends as a result of age and does not need the extra attention and schedule alterations of light required to most hemp plants. Auto Flower strains have reportedly gotten as tall as 4 feet, so for inexperienced indoor growers just be aware of this potential height. Similarly, inexperienced growers need not add supplemental nutrients to the soil, since the seeds work independently. This lack of phytoremediation makes it much simpler to bring to full maturity. Auto Flower strains can also be ready for harvest in as little as 10 weeks. Long answer aside, yes. Auto Flower is easier to grow.

Is Growing Hemp Legal?

After both the 2014 Agricultural Act and 2018’s Farm Bill passing through Congress, all but 3 states permit the growing of hemp crop for commercial purposes, scientific research, or pilot programs.
Cannabis cultivation laws vary between states despite federal regulation due to individual state’s Controlled Substances Act(s).
In the U.S., there are 11 hemp-legal states that allow residents to grow and possess personal hemp crops. Different states have different limits for the number of plants you are permitted to grow per person. Idaho is a hemp-legal state but requires any hemp grown to test out at 0% THC which severely limits the potential strain selection, which means it’s still practically banned.
When purchasing hemp seeds from Colorado Breeders Depot, be sure to thoroughly research the laws regarding hemp growing, and check if commercial or personal growth is still banned. You may have to apply through a federal regulatory program, or confer with your state’s regulations if they have created their own laws and restrictions. Some states require Agricultural permits or licenses to be able to cultivate a hemp crop of any kind, but most are relatively simple to acquire. Our customer service team is available during any business day to answer specific questions regarding hemp legality where you are.

What is Tri-crop?


With industrial hemp projected to become a $30 billion dollar agricultural powerhouse by 2023, farmers are rushing to find ways to grow as much profitable product as possible.
Enter our Tri-Crop varietal of non-feminized hemp seed, the result of years filled with careful, selective breeding for a hemp strain that produces maximal yields of hemp fiber, hemp grain and CBD. We suggest this for anyone working a large growing space or trying to begin a crop at an industrial level, since the plant actually thrives by being direct-seeded and bunched together to form a weed-blocking canopy.

Our Tri-crop seeds are always non-feminized, because on the scale that farmers grow this strain, pollination is actually something you don’t want to avoid. The more breeding going on out in the fields, the more grain crop production! That’s just science.

Hemp fiber is finally gaining recognition both in the U.S. and internationally. Both types of hemp fiber (bast and hurd) are sought after for a wide array of potential uses.
Hemp grain is a superfood for commercial livestock and humans alike. Packed with healthy oils and protein, hemp grain and hemp hearts are growing in demand daily, with further uses for animal feed being introduced all the time
CBD and other major cannabinoids can be extracted from the bulk harvest flowers. These cannabinoid extracts go forward to become many possible CBD products, from smokable cannabis to tinctures to dermal creams or food additives.

These three things can all be harvested efficiently and with the largest possible yield we were able to produce consistently. Hence the name, Tri-crop: three profitable crammed into tiny little seeds. If that isn’t magical, we don’t know what is,
