With changes in cannabis laws around the world and especially in the United States, now is the time to start using one of the world’s oldest agricultural plants, hemp.
Although growing hemp is as easy as growing garden tomatoes, there are several points to consider before purchasing your first set of cannabis seeds.
1. First and foremost, it is always a good idea to check your state laws before going out and buying seeds. States like California and Colorado allow adults to grow a certain amount of plants indoors, but there are regulations that must be adhered to. You will need to understand these before planting valuable seeds in the garden.
The United States spends $3.6 billion annually on marijuana arrests just while using this money we can cover the medical cost of 120,000 patients with coronavirus. Take a look at this infographic For more visual data.
2. Seeds are available in thousands of varieties through online seed banks, cannabis stores and dispensaries. Too many names can be a daunting task to scrutinize, so doing some homework first is a good idea and will put you on the right track. If you are growing it for medical reasons, you may have a particular breed that you are interested in. If this is your first time, it might be a good idea to start with a seed you’ve saved from some good smoke.
3- With the growth of the cannabis industry, many unscrupulous seed sellers are making fortunes by marketing and selling cannabis seeds. Check online reviews or ask a trusted friend for recommendations on where to buy cannabis seeds.
4. Do your homework before. Do you have the space and time to plant your seeds? Make sure you are not violating any laws or regulations! Most of all enjoy the experience of growing a majestic plant and the satisfaction of enjoying your local farmer.
