Choosing the right seeds for you
Coastal Mary sources only the best cannabis seeds from around the world. We carry feminised, autoflower and CBD strains.
As the name suggests, these plants flower automatically and they are relatively easy to grow and highly resilient. Autoflowers generally take about 12 weeks to go from seed to harvest. The average height of an autoflower is around 3 feet and is perfect for indoor or limited space grows.
For Alberta, we would recommend Blueberry. This is a hardy strain with a history of doing well in the region, especially near Calgary.
For higher levels of CBD or THC, we recommend our feminised seeds. These require more care and flowering time than the autoflower and produce a much higher yield of bud. They usually take 4-6 weeks on the vegging phase and then an additional 8-12 weeks in the flowering phase. Indica plants generally have a shorter flowering phase, usually 8-10 weeks.
In Alberta we would recommend the classic White Widow. Almost every grower out there knows this strain and what it can do. It’s Indica dominant and is easy to grow.
The medical benefits of Cannabis?
Medical cannabis (like most cannabis) can be used for pain management and helps alleviate many different types of health conditions. These conditions include rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis which cause inflammation, stiffness and can be very painful.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can be found in the flowering buds of the female cannabis plant. CBD and THC act on cannabinoid receptors in the body. When these receptors are activated, inflammatory and pain responses may be reduced.
If you want to grow a CBD strain in Alberta, we would recommend CBD Kush. This is an autoflower CBD strain which has 8% THC and 8% CBD so a perfect mix for relieving some pain and tension.
What are the laws about growing cannabis (Marijuana) plants in Alberta?
Adults 19 and older are allowed to grow up to four plants. The limit is based on household and not number of people so whether you live alone or with family members, only 4 plants are allowed. Just like the rest of Canada, this is true in Alberta.
