How to Get Your Local Cannabis Seeds and Clones

As we’ve said around these parts before, “When the Snow Season Ends, the Grow Season Begins“, and even if the ‘Rona hadn’t shut down public gatherings and prematurely ended ski season, late March / early April is the ideal time of the year to start getting your cannabis plants ready for outdoor cultivation.

Not surprisingly, we’ve been getting a TON of inquiries for people looking for both seeds and clones, and since we’ve got a lot of very talented grower friends in Vermont, and it’s more important than ever to both support our local neighbors, and to be more self-sufficient yourself. So, it’s time to give the people what they want, and to activate the Vermontijuana network in order to connect you with locally-sourced seeds and clones.

We’re not in the retail business and Vermontijuana won’t be selling anything directly, that’s not how this works. What we’re going to provide is a match-making service for our growing list of vetted Vermontijuana cultivators and let you all take it from there. For seeds, skip below and follow the links for locally-sourced beans; for clones, keep reading, as it’s a little more complicated.

Before we go any farther, some HUGE and VERY IMPORTANT caveats: it takes good genetics and good cultivation practices to harvest outstanding cannabis, so just because you get a pack of seeds or a cutting of an amazing plant doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to have the same results. We can’t guarantee every seed/clone will be perfect, and we certainly can’t guarantee that you’ll successfully cultivate it, especially outdoors in Vermont.

Seeds

For those looking for seeds, the most direct Vermont recommendations that we can share are Emerald Rose Seeds and Sherpa Seeds. When you’re on EmeraldRoseSeeds.com, make sure to check out Vermont-based Ice Petal Flower Genetics (@icepetalflowergenetics), winners of two different categories in the original Headies contest and some of the most respected growers and breeders in the entire region.

Sherpa Seeds have also been breeding in Vermont since before it was cool, and have a similarly excellent track record and reputation. The Sherpa Seeds website may or may not be updated, so if you’re ready to order, we recommend sending a DM to @sherpa_seeds on Instagram if you’ve got questions. Rat Trap, Bird Song, Pig Pen, and Fly Tape are all proven outdoor winners in northern Vermont.

If you’re looking for a wider variety of genetics (autoflowers, feminized seeds, etc), then Archive Seed Bank is the place to go. If you really want to shop around, seedsherenow.com and dcseedexchange.com are two other great resources; however, the Archive team have consistently shown love to the Vermont community and they frequently attend events across the northeast, so they get the nod for online sales.

Wherever you get your seeds, plan to pay at least $50 for ‘standard’ (meaning there are male and female, ideally at least 50/50 ratio) seeds, and at least $100 for feminized (all female) seeds. If you’re paying over $100 for seeds, do your homework and make sure that you read a few reviews — searching Instagram is the fastest way to find ‘testers’ grown by the breeders and other customers.

Clones

For those looking for clones, it’s a slightly more complex process, and it’s only available to Vermontijuana subscribers ($2/month available here). If (when) you ARE a paid subscriber looking for trustworthy clones in Vermont, we’ll privately share the updated list of what’s available, and then work with you to set up a personal introduction and/or direct transfer.

As part of the vetting service for our subscribers, we’ll provide pictures of the clone, the mother plant, and most importantly, the bud that it produces. Registered patients and/or caregivers in need and facing hardship can always get discounted/free clones. Clones come in a variety of forms and sizes, and depending on the breeder(s) location and preference, the clones available may be rooted in soil, or unrooted for you to plant but most breeders value clones at $10-25 depending on the strain and if they’re rooted.

Not surprisingly, we've been getting a TON of inquiries for people looking for both seeds and clones, and since we've got a lot of very talented grower friends in Vermont, and it's more important than ever to both support our local neighbors, and to be more self-sufficient yourself. So, it's time to give the people what they want, and to activate the Vermontijuana network in order to connect you with locally-sourced seeds and clones.

Is your Sour Kush the same as ours?

Through decades of breeding, original strains have experienced genetic drift, resulting in dramatic differences in a particular strain across markets. CVD is in the process of mapping our genetics to ensure consistency in each specific strain brand name – so you can trust us when we say it is Blue Dream or Dancehall.

Pricing

Clones are priced at $25 each or 5 for $100. Sales are by appointment only and must be pre-ordered a minimum of two weeks before the scheduled appointment as supplies are limited.

Transporting clones in a locked container is no longer a regulation as of July 1st, 2018. While patients do not need their transportation container to be locked, the clones still need to be kept out of site while transporting. We ask that all patients transporting clones bring a container to their dispensary appointment – a simple cardboard box or paper bag is sufficient. And we can even deliver directly to you.

Clone care

The clones you are receiving are cuttings that are roughly 14 days old, sterile growing material and treated with a pH adjusted (5.5-5.8) watering. Clones should be transplanted as soon as possible and watered with a distilled water source. If you are going to use tap water, we suggest that you have it tested to understand the mineral/chemical content as well as the pH.

The clones are treated with a predatory mite to help combat and control major pests that may find a home in your garden. It will be beneficial for these mites to breed in your soil so that they can continue to protect your garden. Once clones are watered into soil for about a week, you can begin to feed your clones with fertilizers, teas, or whichever nutrient technique you choose to employ. These are mature plant cuttings and can be flowered right away depending on your overall grow room size. It is recommended that they are given several weeks to vegetate and begin to acclimate to your growing area.
