Buy Bloomington Cannabis Seeds in Indiana

Indiana is one of only a handful of states in the entire country to have yet to legalize any form of cannabis, including for medical purposes. This means that those in Bloomington cannot buy or cultivate marijuana plants or even register as a medical marijuana patient. However, it is NOT illegal to buy and store ungerminated cannabis seeds–the reasons for which we will cover below, along with what the three main types of marijuana seeds are, etc.

Marijuana Seeds in Bloomington, Indiana

While a good majority of the Hoosier State is decidedly conservative, Bloomington, which serves as the county seat of Monroe County, is a bastion for liberals and progressives that openly and actively embraces diversity and change. In fact, it prides itself on being a “city of both dreamers and doers.”

Located 46 miles from Indianapolis and just over 220 miles from Chicago, Illinois, this dynamic city that is located in the rolling hills of southern Indiana and is surrounded by gorgeous national forests and state parks is home to 85,000 residents. This number includes those who attend and work at Indiana University, which has been named one of the country’s top 10 college towns by the New York Times and whose campus has been designated as being one of the five most beautiful in the U.S.

Whilst this unique city has much to offer forward-thinking individuals who place a high value on the arts, education, nature, diversity, etc., it, unfortunately, has little to offer medical or recreational marijuana users and/or at-home cannabis growers due to Indiana’s regressive cannabis laws that are out of sync with the beliefs of much of Bloomington’s population.

However, as alluded to at the top, it is not illegal in Bloomington, or anywhere in Indiana, to buy ungerminated marijuana seeds from online seed banks like Growers Choice Seeds (GCS) as novelty items and store them. In addition, although we do not advocate breaking the law, the reality is there are those in Bloomington who use and/or grow cannabis plants even though if caught they will face some very severe penalties, which we’ll cover in brief below.

Indiana’s Cannabis Laws

While Indiana has some of the strictest laws in the nation when it comes to buying, possessing, using, and cultivating marijuana, one positive note is that CBD products that contain less than 0.3% of THC are fully legal.

Possession of Marijuana Flower and/or Cannabis Products

  • Any amount: Misdemeanor, up to 180 days in jail, and a maximum fine of $1,000.
  • Less than 30 grams PLUS a prior drug offense: Misdemeanor, up to 1 year in prison, and a maximum fine of $5,000.
  • 30+ grams PLUS a prior drug offense: Felony, 6 months to 2.5 years in prison, and a maximum fine of $10,000.

Sales and/or the Cultivation of Marijuana

  • Less than 30 grams: Misdemeanor, up to 1 year in prison, and a maximum fine of $5,000.
  • 30 grams to less than 10 pounds: Felony, 6 months to 2.5 years in prison, and a maximum fine of $10,000.
  • 10+ pounds: Felony, 1-6 years in prison, and a maximum fine of 10,000.

About Ungerminated Marijuana Seeds

The main thing that makes the use and growing of marijuana–be it for medical or recreational purposes–is that it contains the cannabinoid THC, which has psychoactive properties. However, all of the cannabinoids contained in cannabis are dormant until the marijuana seeds are germinated. This is why buying and storing them is not illegal.

So, this means that residents of Bloomington who buy their favorite cannabis strain in ungerminated seed form from a place like Growers Choice Seeds, but simply store them in their ungerminated form are not actually breaking the law.

If, however, someone in Bloomington, or anywhere in the State of Indiana, were to germinate their marijuana seeds using, for example, Growers Choice’s simple and affordable germination method that comes with a 90% germination guarantee, which is the highest in the industry, risk being fined or imprisoned because the cannabinoids, including THC, are now activated in their new seedlings.

Why Bloomington Residents Buy From Growers Choice Seeds

Since there aren’t exactly any legal dispensaries operating in Bloomington, the easiest and safest way for locals to procure some quality feminized cannabis seeds is via an online cannabis seed bank. Some of the main reasons that so many Bloomington residents consistently turn to Growers Choice are provided below.

  • Extensive Selection: Growers Choice has thousands of premium landrace and hybrid cannabis seed strains available online thanks to the fact that GCS has fostered relationships with top cannabis breeders from all over. Basically, GCS operates as a giant online shopping mall where these aforementioned breeders are able to make their wares, aka their cannabis seeds, available to customers all around the world, including in Bloomington.
  • Speedy Shipping and Discreet Delivery: It pretty much goes without saying that those who call Bloomington home greatly value the fact that GCS ships their orders quickly and in packaging that doesn’t attract any unwanted attention.
  • Feminized Cannabis Seeds: The reason that GCS doesn’t sell regular seeds is because they will produce both male and female plants, and your typical at-home grower has little to no use for male plants because male plants serve as pollinators and will turn the buds produced by female plants to seed. Therefore, GCS only sells feminized seeds that are either photoperiods or autoflowers as they have a 99% likelihood of maturing into all-female plants that will produce cannabinoid-rich nuggets, which is what most non-commercial cultivators and breeders are seeking.
  • Affordable Prices: All of GCS’ feminized and autoflowering strains are priced at highly competitive prices. In addition, Growers Choice has ongoing discounts on its wholesale seeds, as well as regular sales on a rotating and diverse selection of a range of seeds that include new, popular, classic, award-winning, and rare strains.

Cultivating Marijuana in Bloomington, Indiana

Since it is completely against the law to cultivate marijuana crops in Bloomington, or anywhere in Indiana for that matter, there’s no real point in talking about how to best grow cannabis outside in its approximate 190+ day outdoor growing season.

In addition, residents of Bloomington who dare to risk running afoul of the law, tend to do their at-home growing indoors in a discreet location, such as a well-ventilated basement, attic, small grow tent, or maybe a locked backyard shed/greenhouse in order not to attract any unwanted attention from neighbors or law enforcement.

Feminized Seeds vs. Autoflowering Seeds

Feminized Photoperiod Seeds

Feminized cannabis seeds produce female plants that do not have the ability to transition from their vegetative stage to their flowering period without having their light/dark cycle manually changed from what is, generally, an 18/6 cycle to a 12/12 cycle. As such, they are often referred to as “photoperiods.”

Thanks to the fact that GCS provides a free blog filled with useful and easy-to-understand information on almost everything one needs to know about cannabis, including how to grow cannabis indoors and out, how to store ungerminated seeds, what cannabis plants’ nutrient needs are, etc. even the most inexperienced of cannabis growers should be able to successfully cultivate easy-to-grow strains such as:

  • 9 Pound Hammer: This powerful indica-dominant strain that is sure to provide users with strong sedative effects that will have them feeling relaxed and couch-locked comes with an aroma and flavor profile that is heavily grounded in earthy notes, with some sharp, sweet funkiness.
  • California Love: This phenomenal sativa-dominant strain that hits users quickly with its cerebrally-focusing impact and physical relaxation was once near-impossible to obtain in seed form, but now it is easily and readily available via GCS.
  • Bubbleberry: This multiple award-winning, sativa-heavy hybrid is rated as one of the easier strains to grow. However, if you’re cultivating it inside, you’ll most likely want to use exhaust fans or carbon filters to keep its fragrance from making itself known to curious noses.

Autoflowering Seeds

Autoflowering seeds are feminized strains that have had about 10% to 20% ruderalis, a hardy landrace strain from Central Asia, added to their genetics. This addition imbues them with the ability to automatically shift to their flowering stage without requiring a change to their light cycle.

Another reason that autoflowers are so popular is that they tend to mature into plants that are smaller, faster-flowering, and more robust than their feminized photoperiod counterparts. Two of the many autoflowers that are known to thrive indoors with the right amount of cultivation experience are:

  • White Nightmare: This sativa-heavy hybrid is a hearty strain that will thrive both inside and out, and is highly resistant to common diseases and pests.
  • Blue Haze: This indica-dominant strain is known to provide users with a mood-brightening euphoric sensation that makes for the perfect chill, uplifting vibe.
