are cannabis seeds illegal in canada

Only one province or territory has offered clones for sale to their residents thus far. Newfoundland started listing a handful of varieties of clones from Ontario-based cultivator Eve & Co in December 2018, allowing consumers to purchase the plants online through the provincial retailer and having them shipped directly to the consumer from the cultivator.

Ontario and New Brunswick come in third, both currently listing four varieties of seed. Ontario has three varieties from 34 Street for $49.95 for four and one from Tweed at $60.00 for four. New Brunswick lists three varieties from Jax at $74.99 for four and one from Tweed at $59.99 for four.
