Ontario’s only legal source for recreational pot has added a few new products to their selection, offering the province’s first legitimate source for cannabis seeds.
As of this morning, January 2, two different seed strains are available for purchase on the Ontario Cannabis Store website. Both are from Ontario-based licensed producer, Tweed, a company now owned by Canopy Growth.
The seeds come in one size only and are listed on the OCS are $60 for a packet of four.
While not much other information has been released, the seeds can be used to grow two Tweed brand strains.
Argyle: Argyle from Tweed is a greenhouse-grown indica-dominant strain. It has a balanced THC-to-CBD ratio and low to medium THC potency. Its dense, verdant green buds are accented by orange hairs.
Bakerstreet: Bakerstreet is another indica-dominant strain with very strong THC potency. Its dense, deep green buds are highlighted with orange-hued pistils and covered with trichomes, and its terpene profile gives it a juniper scent.
Unlike some plants with both male and female parts, cannabis is a dioecious plant, meaning that each plant has its own unique sex. There is no indication on the OCS or Tweed’s website that the seeds come with their sex determined — illegal mail order seeds will sometimes boast this service.
Cannabis growers prefer to remove male plants from their crops as they are less potent and can pollinate the crop, filling buds with typically unwanted seeds.
These look to be the first legally available cannabis seeds in the country, though they were included in the original list of approved cannabis products that came into effect on October 17, 2018.
