You've got your Seeds, now do you just plant in your growing medium and hope for the best...... No.. Here is the best way to Germinate your Cannabis seeds with high success rates.

1 ) Take your Seeds and let them float in a cup of water, I usually keep mine in a dark place like a cabinet.

2) Check the Cup daily (It shouldn't take much more then 24 hours) to make sure the seeds are still floating, Once you notice they have sunk, drain out the water and carefully move the seeds over to a damp paper towel. (TIP : Gently Tap the floating seed daily and if it sinks its ready)
Note - After a couple days they are still floating, just gently tap the seeds and if they sink you are ready to move onto step 3.

NOTE : Keep the plastic bag open if keeping the damp paper towel in a plastic bag. It isn't mandatory just helps keep the water from evaporating. You can just leave the paper towel on a plate and add water daily to keep the seeds moist.
Plastic Bag is Optional!

3) After a couple days you will start to notice the seed opening and a root growing, wait until the tap root is at least 1 CM (Just under half an inch). Use the Picture above for reference!

4) Plant the Seed with the Root facing down (Be careful!), Seedlings enjoy higher Humidity levels so keeping a dome over them is key. 
 
NOTES : 
When growing Autoflower strains make sure to plant your Seeds in there final pot as they like a stress free environment.

Ah, 3 above answers the question I posted in my grow thread: thanks!

With regards to your note about not stressing auto plants, my growshop suggested putting them in Jiffy pellets in a propagator: can I then just put the pellet into the final grow pot?

When I mentioned "Not to stress Autoflowers" I mean Autoflowers do better in Final pot from the germinating. If you use Jiffy pots or Pellets you aren't really stressing the plant out as the roots are never harmed when transplanting that way.

Here is what I do! Plant the seed into Jiffy Pots (Not Pellets) and plant the full seedling with The Jiffy pot into my final pot. The Jiffy pot will decompose within 2 weeks - 3 weeks allowing the roots to expand into the final pot.
