Although this option is only available to people living in states with medical and adult-use legalization, buying marijuana seeds at the dispensary is far more straightforward. However, your options are more limited.
Dispensary staff should be able to give you information on the seeds they’re selling, but keep in mind that a lot of dispensaries focus on selling flower and end-products. It’s a good idea to call ahead and talk to staff to see if they are knowledgeable about seeds and can give you specific information on growing.

Cannabis is a medically recommended herbal therapy to treat pain, depression, Bi-Polar Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, melancholia and migraines, as well as a great sleeping aid, analgesic, and anticonvulsant, to vomiting and nausea from Chemotherapy or to counter the adverse negative effects of other nasty pharmaceuticals.
So far, the medical use of cannabis is legal only in a limited number of countries, including Canada, Belgium, Australia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Spain, and the U.S. states of California, Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, although the rest of the country is soon to follow. The use of cannabis plants for medical purposes can be done to make extractions or smoke the flower as is, due to the innate concentration of the different compounds in our medicinal strains.
Although the use of medical cannabis generally requires a prescription, distribution is usually done within a framework defined by local laws, although in countries like the United States and the Netherlands, patients have an allowance of cannabis plants they can grow freely.
