Growing your own bud can serve as an important lesson on patience and tender loving care as you have to look after and care for something other than yourself.

You can also gift your homegrown goods to friends–of course–but within the limits of the law (1 ounce).

Marijuana Seeds in San Diego
So where are the best marijuana seeds in San Diego you ask? There are quite a few sporadically scattered dispensaries across the region that boast rave customer reviews, top notch products, and exceptional service from brainy budtenders. But how to narrow down the options?
Considering that California rules and prop 64 limit the sale of marijuana, seeds, and clones, it’s worth checking out more than one of these storefronts to cross-reference where you’d like to get your grass growing starter kit from. San Diego marijuana clones are sold in many of the places you’ll find seeds, but know that a plant grown from a seed has the capability of yielding more than a cloned offspring can, as a tap root is naturally produced when using seeds. Growing from seeds also lessens your chances of inheriting pests or diseases. Either way, the outcome will be a delicious and aromatic homegrown strain, so pick your poison because the choice is yours.
The finest places to purchase marijuana seeds in San Diego are outlined below. Most places mentioned carry seeds from the same supplier–Equilibrium Genetics, which is a premium cannabis seed supplier that produces hybrid, heirloom, and landrace seeds. Other dispensaries carry their own branded seeds or Terp Hogz.

Should you go the indoor route, with a proper set up you will be able to produce cannabis in 3-4 months. Happy growing!
