Dear Stoner: What are the laws regarding buying marijuana seeds in Colorado? Are they any different if I’m not a resident?
Mike

Dispensaries that sell them have told us that they can sell no more than a pack of six seeds or clones per day to a customer, and that they count toward your 1-ounce limit. That is, if you can find a store that still sells seeds at all. They’re not extinct, but they are dwindling.

Dear Mike: There are no longer any special possession and purchasing restrictions for out-of-staters, outside of having to ditch your stash at the border. Like Colorado residents, visitors who are at least 21 are able to purchase and possess up to 1 ounce of cannabis flower per day in the state. Although you’re allowed to possess an ounce of concentrates or THC inside of infused products, dispensaries can only sell 8 grams of concentrates to you per day, or edibles containing no more than 800 milligrams of THC.

Once again, yes you can. Most weed dispensaries will also sell cannabis seeds, although which particular strains they stock will depend on local demand, and the personal preferences and business model of the proprietor.

You are not allowed to grow outdoors in Colorado. Not even when your cultivation is out of sight or fenced. In addition, your cultivation must be in an enclosed space, out of sight of the public road and not accessible to persons under the age of 21.

Additional Requirements

However, if you’re a weed lover who is lucky enough to call this admirably free-spirited corner of America home, or even if you’re considering a move to the state, there are a few key questions you’re going to need to clarify before buying cannabis seeds online. So keep on reading and find out all you need to know about: cannabis seeds in Colorado.

Having its origins in 1970s South Africa, Durban Poison was first developed by the legendary cannabis innovator Mr Ed ‘The Guru of Ganja’ Rosenthal. Setting out to develop a cannabis strain which would flourish even in cold climates, Rosenthal succeeded in creating an enduring plant that remains an acknowledged classic the world over.

Equally at home indoors or outdoors, the Girl Scout Cookies cannabis strain was created when some Californian marijuana enthusiasts crossbred Durban Poison and OG Kush. The result was a sublime hybrid which manages to offer both easy maintenance and an impressive THC content of up to 23%. And to top it all off, it even tastes and smells fantastic, with notes of mint chocolate and a touch of spice.

T he weather is warming up which means it’s time to start planning your outdoor grow. If you’ve been thinking about growing marijuana outdoors here in Colorado (or pondering a move to our fine state so that you can), then you’ll need something to help you get started.

Finding marijuana in Colorado is easy enough; finding seeds, on the other hand isn’t quite there yet. Though there are some very reputable stores where you can find high-quality cannabis seeds in Colorado, those places are not as common as the average dispensary.

In Colorado, you have to pay for seeds at 420 dispensaries and pick up your products in person. Seeds can’t be mailed, so shop local at the Spot 420 Pueblo dispensary and Trinidad dispensary!

To ensure you have the most success in your outdoor grow when starting from seed, we suggest finding some from a reputable genetics lab or a dispensary with a proven track-record of high-quality buds.

The Farm has been a very popular dispensary in Boulder for many years, serving up some of the best cannabis in Colorado. They even offer an extensive line of F1 seeds (for both home-growers and the wholesale market) so that anyone of legal age can grow their renowned genetics at home. For consumers, seeds are sold in packs of 6 ranging from $30-60 and are available in a variety of strains. You can even order the seeds online and pick them up in the store at a later time. Check out some of our favorite seeds that The Farm offers:

They currently offer Sour Diesel, Bubba Kush, Golden Goat and Blue Dream crosses.

In most cases, it’s a matter of personal preference. Most people should choose between indicas or sativas (or grow both!) to start.
