Weed is the most frequently used illegal drug in Australia. Considering marijuana is so popular, many Australian cannabis lovers will be happy to hear that the law surrounding using and growing weed seems to be becoming more flexible. Using medical marijuana became legal in 2016, and it is only a matter of time before recreational use will follow suit.

Buying cannabis seeds in Australia
As you have been able to read, some Australian states condone the cultivation of a few cannabis plants, or are lenient with their penalties when you do so. In some cases, this applies to growing your plants outdoors only, not when you do so in artificial circumstances. So if you want to buy cannabis seeds from abroad and you want quick results, it is wise to try autoflowering weed seeds. These are less dependent on perfect light circumstances and more resilient to molds, pests, et cetera. This makes them more suitable for growing outdoors and you don’t have to wait for very specific light or weather conditions for them to flower. Autoflower plants do so automatically when they reach a certain age.

Aussie Canna Seeds is another local cannabis seed shop that seems to be legit ( as far as I can tell on forums).
