When you grow any amount of seeds, a percentage of them won’t germinate, even if you get them from a reputable breeder. Always count on a few not germinating or dying off, or roughly 1/4 of the total you put in the ground.
An inexperienced breeder might cross a male and a female one time and sell the resulting seeds as a new hybrid strain, but professional breeders usually put their strains through several rounds of backcrossing to stabilize the genetics and ensure consistent plants that reflect those genetics.
Cannabis seeds usually come in a pack of 10 or 12 seeds and start at around $40 a pack and go up from there. Some high-end genetics can run between $200 to $500 a pack.
How much do marijuana seeds cost?
When growing regular seeds, some won’t germinate and some will have to be discarded because they’ll turn out to be males. With feminized seeds, some won’t germinate, but a higher percentage of them will turn into flowering plants because there won’t be any males.
Autoflower plants change from the vegetative to flowering state with age, not the changing of their light cycle. They have a short grow-to-harvest time and can be ready to harvest in as little as 2 ½ to 3 months from when you put the seeds in the ground. The downside is that, typically, they are less potent, but autoflower seeds are great for people who want to grow cannabis but don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it.
Before you purchase seeds online, you’ll need to figure out what strain you want to grow and what breeder you want to buy from.
Marijuana seeds are considered a cannabis product just like flower, edibles, and concentrates. Their legality depends on which state you live in. People living in states with adult-use legalization can buy, produce, and sell seeds within their own state, but seeds can’t cross state lines. People living in states with medical marijuana legalization can only buy seeds if they have a medical card.
In some markets, it is also possible to order your recreational marijuana products to be delivered to your home. Buying marijuana through delivery is a smart choice if you aren’t able to leave your home, there are no nearby brick and mortar shops, or if you already know what you want and don’t have any questions.
While most new users have a mental image of walking into a cannabis shop when deciding to buy marijuana for the first time, there are actually a few choices in how you get your marijuana, including entering brick and mortar shops, ordering your selections ahead of time for pickup, and having someone deliver your order. Some shops even offer all three options. Other dispensaries may exist only as a delivery service.
The answer is yes! Cannabis tourism is a growing industry in states around the country, as residents of states with more restrictive marijuana laws are flocking to states where recreational marijuana is legal, allowing them to use cannabis products freely without the fear of criminal charges, fines, or other penalties. There are even marijuana tours in some states that let you take a look at all of the best dispensaries.
You can find dispensaries listed by location from a number of directories online that keep a database of cannabis dispensaries. Some of these online services also list out a shop’s “menu” or the marijuana strains and products the dispensary has in stock.
When it comes time to buy marijuana at a recreational dispensary, the sheer amount of products available for purchase can be overwhelming. Not only are you asked to choose between marijuana flower, extracts, edibles, and topicals, but there are also a seemingly endless amount of strains and brands to choose from. So how do you know which marijuana product is best for your needs?
State marijuana laws will vary regarding what is needed in order for people from outside of the state to purchase marijuana, but in general, all you need to do is find a local recreational dispensary and show your ID. Once you do, you are allowed to freely purchase a variety of marijuana and cannabis products.
Anyone who does this is breaking the law and asking for trouble. While many states have made recreational marijuana legal, it is still federally illegal. Therefore, when you are crossing state lines with marijuana, you are technically breaking federal law. Even if you purchased the marijuana legally in your state of origin, it is against the law to cross state lines with any marijuana on your person.
