You don’t have to have a green thumb in order to benefit from California’s Proposition 64.
This proposition has secured your right to grow six marijuana plants, indoors or out, just so long as you adhere to the rules established by your local area.
Cannabis prices have risen sharply, up to 40% higher in some places due to tightening regulations and increased taxation. Growing your own marijuana has become an attractive endeavor for people who are sticking to a budget.
But do you have to have a green thumb? Not at all.
It might not be as easy as hopping over to your local nursery and picking up some started seedlings, like you might with tomatoes or cucumbers. But it’s also not overly challenging.
Here’s how to start.
Do Your Research
Look into a seed bank that ships to the USA – you will have trouble purchasing seeds from other states, as they can’t be shipped across state lines. It may take you a lot of time to come up with a good list of reputable seed banks.
You can research the various seeds you think you might be interested in by checking out websites like Leafly. Here, you can get more information about the growing requirements and best uses for different strains.
Once you’ve settled on a variety you want to try, call your local dispensary to ensure they have the clones or seeds you want in-store. Make sure you ask a lot of questions about what they have to offer – it’s important that you purchase from a reputable stock.
You don’t need to have a medical recommendation in order to purchase seeds, but you should frequent a licensed store. You’ll also want to have your ID handy.
