popping cannabis seeds

Has anyone ever tried popping pot seeds like popcorn creating potcorn?

Will pot seeds pop the same way or similar to popcorn?

Are you high right now?

no one wants to try because that would be a fucking waste of money, even if it did produce popweed

If that actually worked people would be selling now wouldnt they.

Just like using bee venom to kill hiv right?

There's only one way to find out. Put your head in the microwave as well to see if it works.

Popcorn works due to 3 conditions:

1: Super hard outer shell

2: Large starch mass

3: internal moisture

Cannabis seed doesn't have a hard outer shell and large starch mass.

Best method for popping seeds

Cannabis seeds germinate rather easily. Of all the plants I’ve grown, cannabis seed is probably the most "eager" to pop open and quickest/easiest to germinate. I don’t know why so many people have all sorts of steps they go through just to germinate a weed seed lol. Things like pepper seeds can be more finicky, but cannabis pops open and gets going pretty easily and quickly.

Toss a seed onto some dirt and it’s likely going to germinate just fine on its own.

I’ve only grown the herb twice now. but all I do is soak seeds in some water over night, then the next morning I place the seed into some soil in a 1 gallon pot (outdoors) and that is all I do. Within 48 to 72 hours I’ll see some cotyledons poking through the soil.

Out of about 25 to 30 seeds I’ve worked with so far, only 2 have not popped open/successfully germinated for me and they were some old bag seed I’ve had for 6+ years in a medicine bottle. Lots of the other old bag seed I’ve had for a while popped open just fine though.

Popping Old Marijuana Seeds with GA3

I found this video from 2014. He is trying to geminate 15 year old marijuana seeds. It helps if the seeds are stored in a cool dry place. GA3 is Gibberellic acid.

"Gibberellins have a number of effects on plant development. They can stimulate rapid stem and root growth, induce mitotic division in the leaves of some plants, and increase seed germination rates.[4]

Gibberellic acid is sometimes used in laboratory and greenhouse settings to trigger germination in seeds that would otherwise remain dormant.[3] It is also widely used in the grape-growing industry as a hormone to induce the production of larger bunches and bigger grapes, especially Thompson seedless grapes. In the Okanagan and Creston valleys, it is also used as a growth regulator in the cherry industry. It is used on Clementine Mandarin oranges, which may otherwise cross-pollinate with other citrus and produce undesirable seeds. Applied directly on the blossoms as a spray, it allows for Clementines to produce a full crop of seedless fruit.

GA is widely used in the barley malting industry. A GA solution is sprayed on the barley after the steeping process is completed. This stimulates growth in otherwise partly dormant kernels and produces a uniform and rapid growth."
