The lack of sunlight and cold temperate will hurt the plants: shorts summers are not enough for some varieties to mature. If you live in the region with a short summer, you best choice is auto flowering varieties of cannabis. If you live in the southern regions, you can choose any strain because weather conditions are ideal for cannabis.

Tips on germination of marijuana seeds
If you want to achieve success in germinating marijuana seeds, read about simple rules. Germination of marijuana seeds requires creating some favorable conditions. Almost every grower knows that watering, darkness and warmth are required for proper process. All three components trigger the germination of the seed.
You need to place marijuana seed in warm and dark place. It does not have to be hot and dry: it will kill the seedlings. Keep in mind that the seeds require warmth, moisture and oxygen for germination. First, you will see a small core root sprouting from the seed, than in a couple of days you will see more growth. Germinated seeds are very easy to break and damage. You have to handle them with care and not to break or cause damage to the future seedlings. At some point of germination, transfer your seedlings to light place to stimulate the processes of photosynthesis. Indoor growing requires more climate control skills that outdoor growing. Germinated seeds are a great start for the future harvest.
Before germination, you should carefully examine your seeds and discard broken or damaged ones. If you see any signs of infection on the seeds, you should know that they are compromised. High germination rate depends on the conditions you create for your seeds. First of all, you need to place your seeds in warm environment and keep the temperature at 24-26 C. You can read about different methods of germinating marijuana seeds: each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages.
It is easy to grow marijuana outdoors but it is not the most effective or safest way. We advice planting marijuana seeds and grow in the small and big containers.
