Cannabis seeds can now be purchased online in Alberta
Government's retail website offers single brand of seeds for sale
Those looking to grow their own marijuana are allowed to have up to four plants for personal use, but until now there were few places to legally buy cannabis seeds in Alberta without a medical licence.
Now, the government's online cannabis retail website is offering seeds for those looking to try their hand at homegrown horticulture.
The seeds are sold four to a package.
Although most of the seeds are feminized, the producers can't guarantee that every seed will flower, says the regulating agency, Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC).
The website is offering two varieties of seeds — both from Ontario-based producer Tweed.
One type is mainly THC, the other a THC-CBD hybrid, being sold at $45 and $60, respectively, for an amount equivalent to four grams of dried cannabis, the website says.
As of Jan. 3, it appears that the cheaper variety has already sold out.
Meanwhile, AGLC confirms in a text message it plans to eventually sell live plants. The agency's Heather Holmen says one of the greatest challenges is to create the specific growing conditions required for cannabis plants to thrive.
Home-growing might be an alternative for Albertans frustrated by waning weed supplies across the province.
According to the AGLC's Chara Goodings, licensed producers make more from the finished product and so may be reluctant to distribute seeds to sell.
"It's a limited market for licensed producers, due to the fact that it's really like a niche market," Goodings said.
"And the reason is because it's like proprietary information that they're giving out [about] their own product on how they sell [it]."
The AGLC website has information regarding the rules on growing, storing and transporting cannabis in the province.

First & Foremost
In the event you haven’t been told by someone experienced enough to convince you –
Keep YOUR Secrets a Secret! This applies to ALL your online and offline activities. How can you expect the person you’re telling YOUR SECRET to – To keep your secret – when even you can’t? Just be quiet, HIGH and popular!
Ideal Practice: Use a business credit card with a business address when ordering online. It gets delivered with minimum risks to anyone. All firms have discreet CC billing information for our convenience.
Credit Card Information has become much more secure online. Many of these vendors destroy your payment information immediately after your order has been processed. Still scared? Use a Pre-paid Visa card, Postal Money Order, or Cash.
Shipping to a real name at the address is also key. The mailman knows whether someone lives at an address or not. Use some initials in the address if you feel better about privacy. Make it deliverable. Deliveries are very stealth. P.O. Box, etc.
Never ship to a place where you prefer ZERO information exists on that address tied to you or your activities. DO NOT SHIP to your garden address.
Always use a public email address on your ordering information. Your emails are saved somewhere. Use a public email (versus business email) whenever dealing with your operation or it’s services. Be smart.
Send your package to someone or an address completely unrelated to you. A girlfriend, sister, friend or business. They do not need to know what it is, just that you have something being mailed to them for you. Our breeders ship discreetly.
Never have your parcels delivered requiring a signature. Need we say more here? Special circumstances possibly, and have someone else sign for the delivery.
Be Patient, many international shipments take longer than most people are used to. Give it some time before you start calling the vendor and complaining. Remember what you’re ordering here.
Break-up larger orders over numerous trusted vendors. This allows any postal loss to be a small one. If you have ever lost an order, you’ll be glad you did this.
Buying female seeds, (while more expensive initially), actually saves BIG time and money in your garden. Cloning your females prevents ordering seeds every month or two.
