We live at the dawn of a new golden age for the cannabis genome. More folks can grow a pound this year than ever before. Cannabis is legal for adult-use in nine states and medically legal in 33 total US states. The entire country of Canada can grow.

But consumers don’t know step one about getting started, and that begins with acquiring some seeds and clones. You can’t just go to the gardening section of your hardware store, but still, it’s never been easier or more fun to get seeds.

In this ongoing series, we assist cannabis lovers who can legally grow a pound, which will save money and ensure a clean crop. First up, three blockbuster strains: Blue Dream, Gelato, and Original Glue.

Also, feel free to browse some of the seeds for sale listed on Leafly. And after you buy your first seed packs or clones, study the cannabis life cycle, self-enroll in Cannabis Seeds 101, and prepare for germination. Keep learning with advanced information on feminized and auto-flowering seeds.

And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to hit us up in the comments. Now, let’s get to growing a pound!

If you could grow any pound this year, what strain would it be and why?
