Hip hip hooray cannabis seeds can now be purchased in Alberta! Since recreational cannabis became legal in Canada in October of last year, the market has been plagued with a series of unfortunate events. These have included massive product shortages since the first day of sales, and several different cannabis product recalls. It has also brought to light shady business practices by LPS as well as a few other issues such as over packaging of cannabis products and more.
The Many Benefits of Growing Your Own
Being able to purchase cannabis seeds from the Alberta Government online cannabis retail website is music to many people’s ears! With the legalization of cannabis also came the ability for adults to cultivate cannabis plants at home. Cultivating your own cannabis eliminates product shortages. It also ensures that your plants grow per your desires. In addition, it also eliminates your reliance upon LPs to produce and provide you with cannabis products.
The Seed Selection
Unfortunately, at this time there isn’t a broad selection of genetics available, but the upside is there are some. Currently, there are only two different variety of seeds available on the website. One offers mainly THC while the other is a combination of both CBD and THC content. The THC/CBD hybrid variety is currently available at the rate of $60 for 4 seeds. The THC specific variety is available at the rate of $45 per four seeds. Both varieties offered on the website are from Tweed which is based out of Ontario.
A Cultivated Concern
The seeds available at this time are feminized seeds however they are not guaranteed to flower according to the Alberta Gaming, Liquor, and Cannabis regulatory agency. The agency has confirmed that it would like to sell cannabis clones as well eventually. Unfortunately according to Heather Holman of the AGLC the agency is facing challenges in creating the specific conditions for cannabis plants to thrive. I find that to be quite giscerning considering how there are dozens if not hundreds of craft cannabis growers across Canada that have been able to cultivate thriving cannabis plants for decades.
