Like buying any other product from dispensaries, buying seeds comes with its own set of rules. As with buying weed itself, you need to be 21 years of age or older to buy seeds at a Colorado recreational dispensary. You’ll need valid government-issued ID. You’re also not allowed to give or sell seeds to minors.
What are the laws around buying marijuana seeds and growing marijuana in Colorado?
You can find out how seeds are harvested and stored. Seeds should be fully matured before they are harvested for sale. They need to be stored in dark, cool places, and used within 16 months, or frozen for future use. If not, you’ll end up with seeds that have been spoiled by mold and other nasty developments, so be sure to ask if you aren’t sure of how the seeds were kept.

If you plan to purchase a mix of these products, a licensed recreational marijuana store can help you determine the legally acceptable limits for each purchase.
Coloradans and tourists alike must be smart and avoid driving while under the influence.
Legal Age to Purchase Marijuana
In 2016, the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division imposed restrictions on how much concentrated cannabis and edibles residents and tourists can possess. These products have more THC than other forms of marijuana, so the possession rules were adjusted accordingly.
Adults can possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana in Colorado. Technically, the law permits the possession of up to 1 ounce of THC. The way in which the law is written allows Coloradans and visitors to also purchase edibles, concentrates, topicals, cannabis seeds, and other similar products.
What about National Parks and Federal Property?
As of 2018, all residences are limited to a maximum of 12 plants. Counties and cities may have stricter laws in place.
