Cannabis Seeds Carmel

Buy Carmel Cannabis Seeds Indiana

Currently Indiana is just one of only a few states in the entire nation that still hasn’t legalized cannabis, including medical marijuana for patients in need of its potential health benefits. This means that those who reside in Carmel cannot buy, use, or cultivate marijuana. However, while all of these things are illegal in the entire state, Carmel residents can still buy and store ungerminated cannabis seeds. To find out why, as well as what the three main types of marijuana seeds are, keep on reading.

Marijuana Seeds in Carmel, Indiana

Consistently listed by publications such as Money magazine, American City Business Journals, and Forbes as one of the best places in the U.S. to live and raise a family, the affluent Indianapolis suburb of Carmel offers its population of more than 100,00 access to outdoor activities like the Monon Trail and The Palladium at Carmel City Center, as well as numerous cultural sites, and more than 100 free events throughout the year.

Just 23+ miles north of Indianapolis, it is often said of Carmel that its charm makes this large city feel more like a small, welcoming neighborly locale. Perhaps not too surprisingly, due to its generally well-monied population, Carmel leans conservative–but not extremely so.

As a point of interest, Carmel has become internationally known as the “Capital of Roundabout” as it currently has 142 of them, which is a massive amount for one suburb!

While Carmel is known for its high quality of life, pristine parks, and the kind of fabulous infrastructure that is common to areas that are predominantly composed of wealthy, upper-class folk, something it is not known for is its cannabis cultivation scene since any and all things marijuana-related are still illegal in the State of Indiana.

However, as mentioned in the intro, this is not to say that there aren’t plenty of people in Carmel who legally purchase their favorite cannabis strains from online seed banks like Growers Choice Seeds (GCS) since it’s not illegal to buy and store ungerminated weed seeds.

The Legality of Ungerminated Seeds and Indiana’s Cannabis Laws

Before explaining why Carmel residents aren’t breaking the law if they buy and store cannabis seeds, it would be good to first go over Indiana’s cannabis possession and cultivation laws. 

One positive is that while all forms of medical and recreational weed are completely illegal in Indiana, CBD products that contain less than 0.3% THC have not been outlawed. Although such products don’t tend to be as effective as other higher-THC medical strains, this does at least give would-be medical marijuana patients a chemical-free way to potentially find some relief for their various mental and physical health ailments.

Indiana’s Drug Laws

Possession of Cannabis Flower and/or Marijuana Products

  • Any amount: Misdemeanor, up to 180 days of jail time, 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 Cannabis Crops

  • 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 Weed Seeds

So, the issue that conservatives seem to have with cannabis is the fact that it contains the cannabinoid of THC, which is known to have psychoactive properties. However, since all of the 100 or so cannabinoids contained in the buds of cannabis plants are dormant in an ungerminated marijuana seed, buying and storing them for future cultivation is not illegal.

Whilst this example is far from perfect, it is akin to how it’s not illegal to have a six-pack of beer in your trunk when you’re driving, but if you were to open and drink the beer as you’re driving, law enforcement would have every right to pull you over for drinking and driving.

This means that those in Carmel who buy their favorite marijuana strain in ungerminated seed form from a seed bank like GCS, but store and wait to germinate them until cannabis cultivation is legal in Indiana, aren’t breaking the law.

However, Carmel locals who conduct the germination of cannabis seeds using, for example, GCS’ easy germination method, which comes with a 90% germination guarantee, risk being fined or imprisoned as the cannabinoids, including THC, are now activated in these tiny cannabis seedlings.

Buy Quality Seeds From Growers Choice Seeds

Listed below are five of the main reasons why Carmel residents, and weed lovers throughout Indiana, consistently turn to Growers Choice Seeds for procuring their favorite strains in seed form.

  • Accessibility and Availability: The only way that cannabis growers in Carmel can easily access top-notch cannabis seeds is to order them online from a place like GCS.
  • Extensive Selection: Thanks to GCS having fostered solid relationships with numerous respected cannabis breeders all over, we are able to make thousands of amazing strains easily and readily accessible to new and loyal customers.
  • Speedy and Discreet Delivery: For what should be pretty obvious reasons, Carmel locals really appreciate that GCS gets their orders delivered quickly in discreet packaging.
  • Feminized Marijuana Seeds: GCS does not sell regular seeds because they have a 50/50 chance of maturing into both male and female plants. Although male plants and their pollinating power are integral to the creation of new strains, your average at-home grower has no use for these types of marijuana plants. As such, GCS only sells feminized cannabis seeds that are photoperiods and autoflowers because they have an almost-100% chance of producing all-female plants that produce THC- and/or CBD-rich nuggets, which is what the majority of at-home growers are looking to invest their money, time, and efforts into.
  • Cost: GCS prices its feminized and autoflowering strains at very competitive prices. On top of this, GCS provides discounts on its wholesale seeds. We also feature regular sales on a rotating selection of incredible landrace and hybrid seeds, including new, popular, classic, rare, award-winning, and exotic strains.

Growing Cannabis in Carmel

Seeing as it is illegal to grow cannabis in Indiana, there’s not a lot of point in discussing cultivation tips or what the best strains are to grow outdoors during its frost-free growing season that usually starts near the end of April and goes until early October.

Plus, those in Carmel who do opt to do some stealth growing at home likely engage in the indoor growing of their marijuana plants in a well-ventilated basement, attic, small grow tent, or locked backyard shed/greenhouse so as not to attract any unwanted attention to their fragrant plants.

Feminized Seeds vs. Autoflowering Seeds

Feminized Photoperiod Seeds

Feminized seeds are photoperiods. This means that they produce female plants that are unable to transition from their vegetative stage to their flowering period without having their light/dark cycle changed from what is, generally, an 18/6 cycle to a 12/12 cycle.

While this may sound like a Herculean task for an inexperienced grower, it’s actually not a big obstacle since GCS provides a free blog chocked full of information on most everything you need to know about cannabis, including how to build a cheap indoor setup, and what some of the various indoor growing methods and mediums are. All of which means, that even newbie growers should be able to successfully cultivate easy-to-grow strains like:

  • Banana OG: This delicious indica with its sticky-sweet aroma generally has a rather rapid flowering period duration of about 6 weeks.
  • Gogi OG: This sativa hybrid is referred to by many as “the perfect package” as it embodies the best traits of an OG. Grown indoors, using hydroponics should shorten its relatively longer growing time.
  • Cheese: This smooth and laid-back indica-leaning hybrid that is an extremely rare phenotype of Skunk No. 1 should be pruned when grown indoors due to its tall height.

Autoflowering Seeds

Autoflowering seeds are feminized strains that have had the Central Asian landrace strain of ruderalis added to their genetics, which gives them the ability to automatically transition to their flowering time without requiring a change to their light cycle. Furthermore, autoflowers are known to mature into plants that are more compact, faster-flowering, and more robust than their feminized photoperiod counterparts. Two of the many autoflowers that should do well indoors with the right amount of growing experience are:

  • THC Bomb: Named for its bombastically high THC levels of 22%, this indica-leaning hybrid responds well to hydroponics and the Sea of Green method when cultivated inside.
  • LA Woman: This potent 50/50 hybrid requires at least a medium amount of cultivation experience. Grown indoors, it’s highly recommended that you use exhaust fans or carbon air filters as LA Woman is not a discreet-smelling kind of strain.
