Marijuana Seeds in Sarnia, Ontario

Located on the breathtakingly azure-watered shores of where Lake Huron and the St. Clair River meet, the small city of Sarnia, Ontario is home to approximately 72,000. Known as Ontario’s “Blue Coast,” thanks to the city being home to some of the province’s most beautiful beaches, Sarnia was established on the rightful land of the Anishinaabek that was originally stolen by European colonizers and has since been absorbed into the nation of Canada.

Connected to the U.S. via the Blue Water Bridge, Sarnia is about one hour north of Detroit, Michigan and an hour west of London, Ontario. Because of being located at the center of the awe-inspiring Great Lakes on the St. Lawrence Seaway System and serving as the international border between Port Hurn in Michigan and Point Edward, Ontario, Sarnia is known for being an “international gateway with a small town feel.”

Boasting some of the warmest climate systems in all of Canada, Sarnia residents and tourists get to experience all four seasons to their fullest, where there are outdoor activities for every season of the year with snow activities in the winter, enjoying the city’s gardens and parks in the spring, swimming in the summer, and meandering leafy forest trails in the autumn. In addition, Sarnia is located in Lambton County, which is known for its fertile mineral soil that merely requires the addition of fertilizer so as to increase the area’s abundant crop production capabilities, etc.

Along with their fellow Canadians, medical marijuana patients in Sarnia have been able to access medical marijuana for over two decades dating back to when it was legalized in 2001. In addition, Sarnia locals have been able to purchase, possess, use, and cultivate recreational marijuana since 2018 when Canada passed the Canada Act. However, unlike the country’s medical cannabis program, which is run on the federal level and therefore applies to all Canadian citizens in the country regardless of the province or territory they reside in, the country’s provincial and territorial governments are allowed to create their own unique legislation when it comes to recreational cannabis.

What this means is that what is legal for adult users in Sarnia, Ontario is not going to be the same for those who reside in say, Quebec or Manitoba. In addition, when it comes to public consumption and a few other niche areas, sometimes local municipalities or cities in a province will have their own specific laws. This means that while Ontario itself allows cannabis to be smoked/vaped in most places where smoking tobacco is allowed, some cities and towns in the province do not allow this. So, always check with locals before sparking up in a new town or city.

Medical and Recreational Marijuana Laws in Sarnia

Canada’s Medical Marijuana Laws

  • Canada’s medical cannabis program, which is run by Health Canada, does not have any age limit, but patients must first be approved by their healthcare provider in order to register with Health Canada. For specific details about Canada’s medical marijuana program, including the list of qualifying medical conditions, possession amounts, where medical cannabis can be used, and cultivation allowances please see here.

Sarnia’s Recreational Laws

  • You must be 19+ to possess, consume, or cultivate cannabis in Ontario, and therefore Bolton.
  • Adult-use cannabis may only be purchased online via the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS), or from a local, licensed dispensary. (As an FYI: Ontario and Alberta are the only two provinces in Canada that allow both government-run dispensaries as well as public and private retailers to operate throughout their provinces.)
  • You can possess up to 30 grams of cannabis flower or marijuana products.
  • There is no at-home storage limit.
  • Those 19+ are allowed to cultivate up to four cannabis plants per household–NOT per person.
  •  Sarnia allows adult users to smoke or vape cannabis in most places where the smoking of tobacco is permitted. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.

Why Sarnia Cultivators Buy Their Weed Seeds from Growers Choice Seeds

While at-home cultivators in Ontario, including Sarnia, are technically only supposed to buy their recreational and medical marijuana seeds from OCS, a good majority of locals in Sarnia instead purchase their favorite cannabis seed brands from Growers Choice Seeds (GCS), which is one of the most highly-regarded online seed banks around. The loophole that allows them to do so is because it’s not technically illegal to buy, own, and store ungerminated seeds.

  • Extensive Seed Catalog: GCS operates as an online marketplace where numerous marijuana seed brands and top-notch breeders from all over can make their collection of strains available to interested customers. As a result, home growers in Sarnia can choose from thousands of seeds that include landrace strains, and indica-dominant, sativa-dominant or hybrid strains that would otherwise be difficult to obtain in their neck of the woods.
  • Feminized Cannabis Seeds: GCS only sells feminized photoperiods and autoflowering marijuana seeds because they have a 99% chance of producing bud0bearing female plants, which is exactly what your everyday Sarnia grower wants. This is also why GCS doesn’t sell regular marijuana seeds because they will produce both male and female plants. While male plants, which serve as pollinators, are vital when crafting new strains, most private residential growers just want the THC-rich and/or CBD-rich nuggets produced by female plants.
  • Speedy and Discreet Shipping: Since Sarnia residents and all in Ontario are supposed to buy their seeds from OCS, the fact that GCS delivers their female seeds as quickly as possible and in free stealth packaging.
  • Affordable Purchase Options: GCS charges affordable prices for all of its cannabis seed strains. In addition, they have a diverse selection of wholesale weed seeds for sale and feature regular deals on a rotating selection of their thousands of seeds that include popular, rare, exclusive, new, and iconic strains.
  • Germination Guarantee: GCS provides one of the best germination rate guarantees in the industry, where if 90% of your seeds don’t germinate, they will replace the duds for free. Their only requirement is that you follow their inexpensive and simple germination method.

Feminized Seeds vs. Autoflowering Seeds

Feminized Photoperiod Seeds

Feminized seeds, which are known as “photoperiods,” cannot switch from their vegetative growth stage to their flowering period without outside intervention in their light/dark cycle. Generally, feminized photoperiods have to be changed over from an 18/6 cycle to a 12/12 cycle for them to transition into their flowering stage.

Since GCS provides a free blog that is chocked full of informative articles on most everything one needs to know about the vegetative and flowering stages, light cycles, how to grow weed, etc. even first-time growers in Sarnia should be able to successfully cultivate otherwise easy-to-grow strains like Casey Jones and Lemon Kush.

Note that while Sarnia has a good outdoor growing season in terms of length and temperatures, most tend to grow their feminized photoperiods either indoors all year or outside in a greenhouse, cold frame, row cover, or hoop house where they can provide their plants with the full 12 hours of darkness they require during their flowering stage as their city experiences 15 hours of extended daylight from late-May well and throughout most of July.

Autoflowering Feminized Seeds

Autoflowering seeds are feminized strains that contain ruderalis, which is a remarkably robust landrace strain from Central Asia. The addition of ruderalis allows autoflowers to be able to automatically flip to flower without requiring any changes to their light cycle. Furthermore, autoflowers usually enter their flowering stage faster than photoperiod strains and are known to, and they usually produce plants that are smaller and more resilient than their feminized photoperiod counterparts.

As such, strains like Euforia and Master OG, aren’t just easier and more forgiving for novice cultivators to try their hands at, they are also loved by indoor growers who don’t have much space for cultivating their marijuana plants, and by outdoor growers who want to get as many yields as possible from their marijuana crops during Sarnia’s outdoor growing season, which can start as early as the 25th of April and last until the final days of October.

Three Popular Strains Sarnia

Now that you know the most important basics of Sarnia’s cannabis laws and what kind of seeds will do best indoors and out, here are three more that are popular with users and growers alike in the Blue Coast.

1. Jupiter OG autoflower: An out-of-this-world, indica-dominant hybrid that’s likely to leave your mind blissfully floating in the weightlessness of space and your body locked to the couch.

2. Flo feminized: With its gentle yet energetically rousing boost, you’ll likely be adding this sativa-dominant hybrid to your roster of wake-and-bake strains.

3. Alien OG feminized: This evenly-balanced hybrid will abduct you into another world where psychedelic head highs and exhilarating body highs freely roam.
