The first couple months of the year is a great time to start planning your cannabis garden to get a head start on the outdoor growing season, which roughly runs from March to November, depending on where you live.
It also reduces the risk of having a stray male sneak into your crop—just one male can pollinate a huge crop, causing your females to focus their energies on producing seeds instead of buds.
Is it legal to buy marijuana seeds?
Some strains also take longer to grow than others. Depending on whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors, you may want to grow a quicker marijuana strain if you live in a climate that get cold and wet early in the season. For example, indicas are known for having a shorter flowering time than sativas.
Make sure to always stay within your state’s legal limit of growing plants.
Navigating the cannabis seed market can be challenging when states have different degrees of legality. This guide will answer your questions on buying seeds so you can be on your way to growing your own cannabis.
If you’ve Googled a bit, you may have noticed that many shops are located in Canada, the United Kingdom and of course the Netherlands. Dutch online cannabis shops are often located in or around Amsterdam: the source where the highest quality seeds come from and where the most knowledge can be found. For the best quality cannabis seeds it is therefore best to order from a reputable (Dutch) seed bank with a long track record.
If you buy cannabis seeds more often from a certain cannabis seed shop then this rule doesn’t apply, but if you’re planning to buy cannabis seeds for the first time and you want to do this safely, then we recommend you start with a small order. After all, with a small order the risks are low. You can test the reliability of the shop, as well as the quality of the seeds, without it costing you a lot of money.
2. Buy at a European cannabis shop
There are several seed banks that deliver weed seeds to a P.O. box address. Would you like that too? Then you can easily rent a PO box. Of course, you can also ask friends or family whether they would like to receive the order.
Although the law in the Netherlands allows small quantities of cannabis seeds to be sold to customers, this does not mean that if you live abroad, growing and germinating cannabis seeds is allowed in your country. We therefore strongly recommend that you check the lawfulness of cannabis seeds in your country and check the regulations regarding the import of seeds before making a purchase.
When you decide to buy your seeds online, you also want to make sure you receive good seeds. Unfortunately, there are still online shops that scam customers, offer poor customer service, offer no or very few guarantees and sell bad seeds.
