Learn About Juneau, Alaska

Rightful home of the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian people, the coastal mountain town of Juneau, which is located in one of the largest wilderness areas in the U.S., is the seat of government for the State of Alaska. It is a natural wonder and cultural treasure that calls itself the “beating heart of Southeast Alaska.” Interestingly enough, Juneau is the only state capital in the entire nation that can only be reached by boat or plane.

Juneau’s downtown area is comfortably situated between Mount Juneau, Mount Roberts, and the Gastineau Channel. The area was established before the Klondike Gold Rush in 1898 but also was colonized due in large part to the “discovery” of gold in 1880 by prospectors Joe Juneau and Richard Harris, who were led to the area that would later become known as “Gold Creek” by a Tlingit chief. The city itself was founded when the U.S. purchased Alaska from Russia and was home to Treadwell Mine, which was at one point the largest hard-rock gold mine in the world.

While much of the state leans conservative, Juneau leans liberal, which makes sense considering it was the first city in Alaska, and the entire country, to approve the onsite consumption of marijuana at a local dispensary back in 2020.

Medical and Recreational Cannabis Laws in Juneau

Although the Land of the Midnight Sun leans to the conservative side of things, it’s long had relatively lax views on cannabis and in 1998 became one of the first in the country to legalize medical marijuana, followed by becoming the third state, after Colorado and Washington State, to make recreational weed legal in 2014–effective February 2015.

When medical cannabis was legalized in 1998, the piece of legislation that Juneauites, and their fellow Alaskans, voted “Yes” to didn’t include any provisions for the legal establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries, and when the adult-use recreational marijuana law was passed 16 years later a separate system for registered medical marijuana patients and their caregivers was never created.

This means that medical patients in Juneau generally don’t get any of the usual perks like sales tax breaks, discounts, special selection, or services that the majority of medical patients in the Lower 48 are accustomed to. 

Juneau’s Medical and Recreational Marijuana Laws

The only big distinction that separates an adult recreational cannabis user and a registered medical marijuana patient in Juneau is the minimum age requirement. To become a qualified medical cannabis patient you must be 18+, or if you are under 18, you must have a designated caregiver who is 21+; whereas, recreational adult users must be 21+.

All other laws for these two groups of users are pretty much the same. Below, we will focus on laws as they relate to the cultivation of cannabis plants at home.

  • At-home cultivation of cannabis plants
    • You must be 21 or older, even if you are a medical marijuana cardholder.
    • You can cultivate up to 6 weed plants–three of which can be mature female plants.
    • No more than 12 marijuana plants, with up to 6 being mature, are allowed per household.
    • Cannabis plants may only be grown in or on your personal private property and must be out of public view and inaccessible to minors.
    • Renters must first obtain permission from their property manager or the homeowner before engaging in at-home cannabis cultivation.
    • If you are growing your cannabis indoors, you must apply the appropriate measures to mitigate any pungent odors emitting from your indoor growing space by using equipment such as exhaust fans, etc.
  • Gifting: You may legally share up to 1 ounce of cannabis and 6 marijuana plants with another adult who is 21+ so long as it is given as a gift with zero remuneration.

Why Juneauites Buy Their Cannabis Seeds Online

Cannabis and its products generally cost a lot more in Alaska than the rest of the country. As such, medical and recreational users in Juneau like to grow their favorite photoperiod and autoflowering strains at home, as it’s cheaper. Plus in a city that sees an annual snowfall average of over 93 inches, even when you’re a local who is used to the weather, the fact is that you still sometimes don’t want to make the trip to the dispensary when there’s a few feet of accumulated snow on the ground and temps are below freezing.

Lastly, dispensaries in Juneau simply aren’t set up to offer the kind of selection of classic, rare, exotic, new, award-winning, niche, and popular strains in seed form like we at Growers Choice Seeds are, as their area of focus is more on making a diverse array of marijuana products available to locals.

Why Outdoor and Indoor Growers Buy from Growers Choice Seeds

To start with, we at Growers Choice stand by the quality of all of the different types of seeds we sell, and we back this up with a germination guarantee, in which we promise that if 90% of your seeds fail to germinate we will replace the duds for free. This fact in and of itself is a huge draw for first-time growers to experienced growers in Juneau and throughout Alaska.

Some of the other big reasons why at-home growers in Juneau rely on Growers Choice Seeds, which is one of the top-rated online seed banks around, for procuring their feminized marijuana seeds are touched on in the section below.

More Reasons Why Growers Love Growers Choice

  • Extensive Selection: Basically, we serve as an online market in which reputable cannabis breeders from all over can make their various feminized photoperiod and autoflowering strains more easily accessible to hobby and commercial growers. This, in turn, allows us to make a wide variety of high-quality seeds available to our customers.
  • Feminized Cannabis Seeds: Feminized seeds have a 99% likelihood of producing all-female plants, which is what your typical home grower in Juneau wants. This very fact is also why we do not sell regular seeds, as they produce both male and female plants, and at-home growers don’t tend to need or want pollinator male plants.
  • Weed Seed Deals: Not only is it usually cheaper for medical and recreational users to grow their own hybrid, indica, and sativa strains at home, but we also offer discounts on our wholesale seeds, as well as regular, rotating monthly sales on feminized and autoflowering seeds.
  • Discreet and Speedy Delivery: Need we say more?

How to Germinate Your Cannabis Seeds

Before giving you a primer on feminized vs. autoflowering seeds, let’s quickly rewind to the topic of germination.

We know that getting your ungerminated seeds to their all-important seedling stage may seem like quite a daunting task if you’re a novice grower. However, you’ll be relieved to know that it’s so simple that even school-aged kids could do it.

All you really need is a cup, clean water, tray, paper towels, your ungerminated seeds, and the ability to follow these step-by-step instructions provided here, et voila!

Feminized Photoperiod Seeds

Feminized strains are unable to transition on their own from their vegetative growth stage to their flowering stage without having their in light cycle changed from switch them from what is usually 18 hours of light 6 hours of dark period to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark period.

While Juneau doesn’t ever have 24-hours of daylight, their summers average 17.5 hours of daylight just in the month of July alone, and with a cold soil outdoor growing season of under 150 days, the outdoor growing of feminized seeds isn’t really that feasible. As such, the majority of beginner growers to the most advanced growers in Juneau often just stick to growing their feminized photoperiod strains indoors year-round.

However, if you have an outdoor greenhouse, you should be able to cultivate strains like Purple Punch, Pineapple Express, and Panama Red in that environment provided you have something like blackout curtains installed in your greenhouse.

Feminized Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Autoflowering seeds are inherently capable of automatically flipping to flower without cultivators having to adjust their light cycle as they transition from their vegetative stage to their flowering phase based on their age. In addition, they also tend to produce faster-growing, smaller, and more robust plants. The reason autoflowering cannabis seed strains can do this is because they contain ruderalis, which is a landrace strain that has its roots in Russia and Mongolia, which, like Alaska, traditionally have prolonged winters that are very cold with long dark periods, and very short summers with extended daylight hours.

Hybrids like Alaksa Thunderfuck autoflowering seeds, Northern Lights autoflower seeds, and the Gorilla Cookies autoflower strain, which all do well in cooler temperatures, should complete their flowering stage before the end of Juneau’s outdoor growing season. Plus, as with feminized photoperiod strains, you can always switch to the indoor growing of your autoflowering cannabis strains when the first frost hits.

Juneau’s Climate

Juneau sees an average of 222 days of precipitation a year and tends to be frost-free from early June until late September, or early October. One of the biggest challenges for outdoor growers in Juneau is draining the water from the soil, but this can be pretty easily worked around by creating a raised garden bed for cultivating your cannabis crops.

However, the very best option for ensuring that your outdoor cannabis crops in Juneau get the kind of soil, temperatures, and low- to mid-humidity levels they need to thrive is to grow them in an outdoor greenhouse, which is what many agricultural gardeners already do in Juneau for ensuring a successful harvest of their “dry-weather” vegetable crops, such as corn, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
