With over 90 years of prohibition to follow, Vermont switched track and became one of the first U.S states to legalise the use of medical marijuana in 2004 following state legislature with the decriminalisation of cannabis to follow in 2013.
However, despite the passing of both possession and cultivation laws, legislation for the commercial sale and taxation of recreational marijuana remains frustratingly unavailable for the people of Vermont.
Vermont Cannabis Law
Despite Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders pledge to federally legalise cannabis should he have been successful in his quest to become the Democratic nominee for President in 2020 (he was not), Vermont continues to miss out on the potential financial windfall that legalised cannabis would inevitably bring to the state.
Let’s take a closer look at the cannabis laws in Vermont.
However, despite their seemingly progressive approach to cannabis legality, the state has yet to move towards the booming commercialised market offered up by states like California and Nevada.
Sherpa Seeds have also been breeding in Vermont since before it was cool, and have a similarly excellent track record and reputation. The Sherpa Seeds website may or may not be updated, so if you’re ready to order, we recommend sending a DM to @sherpa_seeds on Instagram if you’ve got questions. Rat Trap, Bird Song, Pig Pen, and Fly Tape are all proven outdoor winners in northern Vermont.
Not surprisingly, we’ve been getting a TON of inquiries for people looking for both seeds and clones, and since we’ve got a lot of very talented grower friends in Vermont, and it’s more important than ever to both support our local neighbors, and to be more self-sufficient yourself. So, it’s time to give the people what they want, and to activate the Vermontijuana network in order to connect you with locally-sourced seeds and clones.
Before we go any farther, some HUGE and VERY IMPORTANT caveats: it takes good genetics and good cultivation practices to harvest outstanding cannabis, so just because you get a pack of seeds or a cutting of an amazing plant doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to have the same results. We can’t guarantee every seed/clone will be perfect, and we certainly can’t guarantee that you’ll successfully cultivate it, especially outdoors in Vermont.

We’re not in the retail business and Vermontijuana won’t be selling anything directly, that’s not how this works. What we’re going to provide is a match-making service for our growing list of vetted Vermontijuana cultivators and let you all take it from there. For seeds, skip below and follow the links for locally-sourced beans; for clones, keep reading, as it’s a little more complicated.
