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.
As we’ve said around these parts before, “When the Snow Season Ends, the Grow Season Begins“, and even if the ‘Rona hadn’t shut down public gatherings and prematurely ended ski season, late March / early April is the ideal time of the year to start getting your cannabis plants ready for outdoor cultivation.
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.
For those looking for seeds, the most direct Vermont recommendations that we can share are Emerald Rose Seeds and Sherpa Seeds. When you’re on EmeraldRoseSeeds.com, make sure to check out Vermont-based Ice Petal Flower Genetics (@icepetalflowergenetics), winners of two different categories in the original Headies contest and some of the most respected growers and breeders in the entire region.
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.

In 2018, Vermont became the first U.S state to legalise the use of marijuana through legislation as opposed to a ballot measure. The new legislation allows for the recreational consumption, possession and home cultivation of cannabis in the state.
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.
Vermont Cannabis Law
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.
Let’s take a closer look at the cannabis laws in Vermont.
Still, the momentum for recreational sales continues to gather pace in Vermont, and local state officials remain confident a bill to establish an adult market for marijuana sales will still advance in 2020, despite the ongoing global pandemic. Support for the bill has bicameral backing with both sides still working to agree on the final wording of the bill to advance to the governor.
