Where to Find Cannabis Seeds in Colorado
Saturday April 11, 2015
T he weather is warming up which means it’s time to start planning your outdoor grow. If you’ve been thinking about growing marijuana outdoors here in Colorado (or pondering a move to our fine state so that you can), then you’ll need something to help you get started.
One option is to start with clones of other “mother” plants. You could get clones from friends or buy a few from a place like LaContes Clone Bar or Ballpark Holistic Dispensary, but it is important to remember that bringing clones into your grow might also introduce contaminants such a pests and disease to your other plants, though this is less of an issue when growing outdoors. Clones also tend to be less capable of handling stress and often experience transplant shock if not thoroughly rooted, so be sure to check your clones before purchase.
If you’ve got a collection of “bag seeds”, you can try sprouting them indoors for future transplant, but keep in mind that these seeds might not be as viable as the ones you’d get from a dispensary or breeder. They may thrive indoors, for example, then burn up outdoors or offer little resistance to pests.
To ensure you have the most success in your outdoor grow when starting from seed, we suggest finding some from a reputable genetics lab or a dispensary with a proven track-record of high-quality buds.
Employees at these locations will also have a slew of information for you about each strain, including plant characteristics, temperament and expected harvest time. When you purchase your seeds, be sure to consult your budtender about best growing practices for each seed.
Of course, you won’t be able to sprout cannabis seeds without knowing how to find them first. Though there are a number of dispensaries that occasionally sell marijuana seeds, there are only a few that continuously offer high-quality seeds at affordable prices.
Here are some our favorite places to find marijuana seeds in Colorado.

Finding marijuana in Colorado is easy enough; finding seeds, on the other hand isn’t quite there yet. Though there are some very reputable stores where you can find high-quality cannabis seeds in Colorado, those places are not as common as the average dispensary.
Because of the limited number of seed distributors in Colorado, many residents have turned to online orders. Though this can be a great way to find new and exciting strains, there is still risk involved ordering online. To ensure you get the seeds you want when you want them, we suggest shopping local as much as possible.

The Rules of Buying Marijuana Seeds at a 420 Dispensary
Like buying any other product from dispensaries, buying seeds comes with its own set of rules. As with buying weed itself, you need to be 21 years of age or older to buy seeds at a Colorado recreational dispensary. You’ll need valid government-issued ID. You’re also not allowed to give or sell seeds to minors.
While anyone from around the world can come to Colorado to buy cannabis seeds from a 420 dispensary, there are a lot of rules governing who can grow weed and where. Read on!
Possession of cannabis, including seeds, is mostly illegal in the United States. It is still illegal federally. If you live in Colorado, you’re fine to grow weed under the cultivation limits. If you’re from somewhere where it’s still illegal to possess and/or grow cannabis, you shouldn’t buy seeds and take them out of Colorado – if it’s still against the law where you are, you could face harsh penalties.

In Colorado, you have to pay for seeds at 420 dispensaries and pick up your products in person. Seeds can’t be mailed, so shop local at the Spot 420 Pueblo dispensary and Trinidad dispensary!
Choosing Your Cannabis Seeds
As many smokers know, there are different strains of cannabis, and thus seed, for every desired trait and every type of person. There are countless strains of marijuana out there, and The Spot 420 dispensaries stock a wide variety of products for you to try growing. How you know which marijuana strain to choose?
In most cases, it’s a matter of personal preference. Most people should choose between indicas or sativas (or grow both!) to start.
The Difference Between Growing Indica and Sativa
Sativas will grow quickly. They’ll get quite tall in the course of the season. With this type of plant, you’re looking at an energetic, “up” high.
Indicas are shorter and denser. They mature faster than sativas once they start flowering. People generally call the stone from these plants more of a body buzz.
Of course, there are hybrid seeds, which have individual characteristics depending on the percentage of indicas and sativas in each plant. When you make your seed selection at a 420 dispensary, think about the type of growth and maturation you want in your plant, and the type of high you’re looking for.
Generally, to get the most bang for your buck, look for seeds of plant strains that are proven to have large yields and a high THC content. Buying cheap seeds isn’t worth it, most of the time. You’re likely to end up with plants that fail to grow into anything worthwhile. When you consider how much weed you can get out of a single plant, it makes sense to invest in high-quality seeds, which should turn into high-quality bud!

Once you buy them, use them right away, or store them appropriately in the meantime.
