Unlike the neighboring states of Colorado and Nevada, you cannot legally buy marijuana seeds in Utah as both cultivation and possession are against both state and federal law. Except for medical CBD for epilepsy sufferers, Utah has no medical marijuana program, or plans to implement one in the near future. You can buy marijuana seeds in Utah online, and possession of the seeds isn’t a crime. However, once germinated they are considered illegal, with possession and the growing of marijuana seeds resulting in a jail sentence for even the smallest amounts.
Utah has a great climate for growing marijuana outdoors. Long hot Summer’s with up to fifteen hours of daily sunlight, produce large plants with an abundant yield. Unfortunately the only marijuana strains that can be legally grown in Utah are industrial hemp plants, containing less than 0.03% THC. Despite the laws and harsh penalties, Utah produces some of the best quality outdoor marijuana, and is often used by ‘guerrilla growers’ from neighboring states, for remote and secluded growing operations, producing large quantities of highly potent buds.
Although marijuana seeds planted and grown indoors often produce the best quality buds and harvests, Utah has the perfect climate to grow many well known and popular strains outdoors, to almost equal quality, while significantly reducing the risks involved. Easy to grow marijuana seeds, such as certain Indica dominant strains and autoflowering seeds are often the seeds of choice for many ‘guerrilla growers’, producing good quality buds and generous yields, while requiring the minimum care and attention. The key point of ‘guerrilla growing’ is to use remote and secluded locations to cultivate into an outdoor growing area. Visits should be kept to a minimum to avoid arousing suspicion, or increase the chances of being seen cultivating the plants.
With it’s long, hot Summer’s growing marijuana outdoors in Utah can be easy with correct strain selection. The warm Fall, and slow onset of Winter, provide the perfect conditions for many types of marijuana seeds, from the fast-flowering, Indica dominant strains, through to the Sativa based seeds, requiring an average of ten weeks to fully flower and mature. Planted in the Spring, both regular and feminized marijuana seeds will grow and develop over the coming months, until the daylight hours reduce to approximately twelve hours per day, at which time they will change from their vegetative phase, when they grow and develop, to their flowering stage which will require between two – three months to produce mature, ripened buds.
Grown over the duration of an entire season, yields can be measured in kilo’s rather than grams, but for some guerrilla growers, speed and ease of growth are more important. Autoflowering seeds have become very popular, providing high quality harvests, while reducing the time, care and attention needed to an absolute minimum. Guerrilla growing’s primary concern is to reduce the risks involved with growing marijuana, and with many calling auto’s ‘throw-and-grow seeds’, due to their easy to grow nature, they have become increasingly popular across many states in the USA.
