Cannabis Seeds for Sale in Alberta
At long last, cannabis seeds are available for purchase in Alberta, legally! Weed/Marijuana/Cannabis or whatever you call it was made legal throughout Canada on October 17th 2018, however only some cannabis products were available for purchase at that time. You could only buy the dried flower (the weed you smoke), oil, and some edibles in the form of capsules, but that was it. No seeds. In addition to cannabis now being legal to buy/consume, Canadians are also allowed to grow their own plants for personal consumption, but there hasn’t been anywhere to legally purchase seeds.
How silly is that?
Wellsir, it’s 2019 now, and the AGLC added a new section to the Alberta Cannabis website! Seeds! You can now purchase cannabis seeds directly from the Alberta Government (it feels so weird typing that sentence out). At present time there is only 1 strain available for purchase. You’ll need to be logged in to see the details.

Unfortunately, at this time the website does not indicate if the seeds are feminized or not. I called the AGLC and spoke with them about that. Here’s what they said:
The seeds are feminized, but they cannot guarantee that every single seed will be female, however the odds of getting a male seed is very low to non-existent. They are also photo-period seeds and not auto flowering.
Hopefully more seeds will become available soon! You can grow up to 4x cannabis plants in your home! Hooray! Keep in mind that each province has some restrictions on just how you can grow them. Do your research. Here’s the info for Alberta.
Why you want feminized seeds
Male cannabis plants do not sprout buds/flowers. Female cannabis plants do! The bud/flower is the part of the plant that contains the THC/CBD. Feminized seeds have been cultivated to only produce a female plant. If you don’t buy feminized seeds, you’ll need to plant several of them to figure out which ones are male or female.
Buy Cannabis Seeds Online in Canada
Seeds have long been available to purchase online from various, be it not completely legally. Use at your own risk and do your research! I’ve never ordered from any of these sites and cannot be held responsible if you order seeds that grow lizards or something. This list is only a reference to highlight that alternative options exist, and have existed for a while in Canada to acquire marijuana seeds.
Keep in mind that by law any plants grown from ‘grey market’ seeds won’t be legal. Don’t break the law, man.
Products To Help You Grow Cannabis
If you have room for a BloomGrow grow tent kit, they’re recommended. Good for small places.
If you aren’t able to accommodate an entire grow tent kit, installing hanging overhead LED lights might be an option.
Don’t forget a fan!
Wherever you buy your seeds from, make sure they get a lot of light and water!
