Buy Bettendorf Cannabis Seeds in Iowa

Is Marijuana Legal in Bettendorf, Iowa?

While Growers Choice Seeds (GCS) is, of course, focused on providing you with the best cannabis seeds for your home, it’s important to make sure you understand the marijuana laws in your area. That way, you know what you can and can’t do with your cannabis seeds once they actually show up at your door in Bettendorf, Iowa.

So, first, Growers Choice is going to cover the basics: Is medical marijuana legal in Bettendorf? What about recreational cannabis? And, can you grow weed at home? Let’s find out.

Medical marijuana and recreational marijuana laws

Unfortunately, the medical marijuana laws in Bettendorf, and the rest of Iowa, are strict and complicated. Unlike many other medical marijuana programs in the country, Iowa’s only offers high-CBD, low-THC products, capping the THC percentage at just 3%. (In fact, the program is called Iowa’s Medical Cannabidiol (CBD) Program.) This means that those with qualifying medical conditions are only allowed certain products that follow the state’s strict regulations.

Medical patients are permitted to buy and consume CBD cannabis products like tinctures, oil, topicals, and capsules; however, any edibles and smokeables are against the law. This means that you cannot smoke CBD flower, either.

Sadly, recreational marijuana has not yet been legalized in Iowa, leaving it prohibited for adults to enjoy in Bettendorf. Cannabis hasn’t been decriminalized in Iowa either, so even small amounts of flower (or other products) are strictly prohibited. Thus, only those in Iowa’s medical cannabis program with active cards can buy, possess, and consume high-CBD, low-THC products in Bettendorf.

Can you grow weed at home in Bettendorf, Iowa?

With how strict the marijuana laws are in Bettendorf—and Iowa as a whole—it’s not shocking to find out that at-home cannabis cultivation is prohibited in the state. Both indoor growing and outdoor growing of marijuana plants are completely against the law, and you can get in serious legal trouble if you’re caught cultivating.

The punishments for at-home cannabis cultivation will vary depending on how many weed plants you grow. You can be charged anywhere from hundreds of dollars in fines to ending up in jail for several years. Simply put, it’s not worth it to try.

In the future, there’s a chance that these regulations will change, and you’ll be able to legally enjoy indoor cultivation (or outdoor cultivation, depending on your setup). But, for now, you have to be patient and put the growing on hold.

What are Cannabis Seeds?

As we mentioned, here at Growers Choice Seeds, we specialize in selling high-quality cannabis seeds to ship right to your home in Bettendorf. But, how do we do this—and what are cannabis seeds in the first place?

To break it down, weed seeds are the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, commonly known as marijuana or hemp. These seeds are used for various purposes, including the cultivation of cannabis plants for recreational or medicinal use, as well as for industrial purposes such as hemp seed oil production, food products, and bird feed.

There are many different varieties of cannabis seeds available, each with unique characteristics such as flavor, aroma, potency, and growth traits. You can find feminized photoperiod seeds (which produce only female plants and flower based on light cycle), regular seeds (producing a mix of male and female plants, which GCS does not offer), or autoflowering (feminized seeds that flower based on age rather than light cycle).

Are they legal?

Marijuana itself may not be legal in Bettendorf, but cannabis seeds actually are. This is because weed seeds themselves contain dormant cannabinoids, and they will stay dormant until planted. Thus, you’re legally allowed to purchase cannabis seeds and hold onto them until the status of marijuana changes in your area. You just cannot germinate or plant your seeds.

So, yes, cannabis seeds are allowed in Bettendorf! And Growers Choice has a great selection of premium seeds for you to choose from, perfect for your future canna-garden.

Types of Weed Seeds for Sale

When shopping from GCS, you’ll find that we have two main seed types for sale: feminized photoperiod and autoflowering feminized. As we mentioned briefly, Growers Choice only offers feminized varieties, so you won’t find any regular seeds here. Instead, our seeds are all but guaranteed to produce the female plants you know and love.

To get you familiar with feminized and autoflowering seeds, we’ve explained the classifications more in detail below.

Feminized Cannabis Seeds

Growers Choice Seeds has a great selection of feminized photoperiod seeds for you to choose from. Photoperiod seeds are going to transition from the vegetative stage to the flowering stage when triggered by a change in the light/dark hours the plants are exposed to. This shift in the number of light hours signals to the feminized photoperiod plants that it’s time to flower.

For outdoor growers, this change happens naturally when the seasons change and the number of daylight hours decreases. However, those growing cannabis indoors must trigger this change manually through the adjustment of light cycles. This makes photoperiod seeds ideal for more experienced growers who are well-versed in the necessary hours of light for these growth stages.

Growers Choice Seeds offers an impressive selection of these feminized photoperiods, helping you choose all your favorites to cultivate some female cannabis plants with (once it’s legal, of course). You can find popular strains like OG Kush and Pineapple Express, as well as more up-and-coming strains like Animal Crackers.

Autoflower Seeds

If the thought of changing hours of light to switch from the vegetative stage to the flowering stage is too daunting, you can always try out autoflowering seeds, instead. As the name suggests, these seeds begin flowering on their own after a certain amount of time. You don’t have to worry about adjusting light/dark hours; rather, they leave the vegetative stage independently, leaving you to focus on so many other plant components.

The ease and independence of autoflowering seeds make them incredibly appealing to first-time growers, as well as anyone looking for an easier yield. Plus, the flowering stage of auto seeds tends to be shorter, potentially helping you have more successful, quicker harvest times in a season.

Just like our photoperiods, we offer our autoflowering seeds in so many different strains. Whether you’re seeking something relaxing, stimulating, or somewhere in between, we’ve got the autoflower strains for you.

Indicas vs. Sativas

When scrolling through our huge selection of cannabis seeds, you’ll likely notice the different classifications that the strains are under. The classifications—indica, sativa, and hybrid—can be confusing if you don’t know what they mean. So, let’s break it down, starting with indicas vs. sativas.

Typically, indica strains are known for being shorter, bushier, and more compact weed plants, and they produce flower that is ideal for nighttime based on their relaxing properties. Sativas, on the other hand, are going to grow taller and sparser, taking up more space; they will have opposite effects as indicas, too, usually resulting in more stimulating effects that are great for daytime.

It’s important to consider how these different types of cannabis grow, as it will affect your choice in grow setup (and strains). Sativas, for example, may be better outdoor plants because of the space they take up, while indicas and their compact nature can be perfect for indoor growers who have more limited space. It’s also crucial to figure out what kind of effects most appeal to you, and then pick sativas or indicas that align with those the most.

Hybrid Strains

Right in the middle of indica and sativa strains are hybrids, great for anyone looking for something a bit more balanced. Hybrid strains will contain a mix of both indica and sativa properties: some have a 50/50 blend, while others are more indica or sativa-dominant. It simply depends on the strain’s genetics.

You can find so many of the best hybrid strains on the market today with Growers Choice Seeds. Whether you’re seeking an indica-dominant strain like Banana OG, something more sativa-heavy like 707 Headband, or something smack-dab in the middle like Bay 11, our online seed bank has everything you need and more.
