Although both possession and cultivating marijuana in Kentucky is illegal, the penalties differ dramatically, depending upon the amount you are found to be in possession of, or the number of plants you’re found to be growing.

Possessing any amount of marijuana is considered illegal in Kentucky, however, amounts under eight ounces are treated more leniently, incurring a maximum forty-five day jail sentence and $500 fine. Possession over eight ounces is considered supply and attracts bigger fines and longer jail terms. Growing marijuana seeds in Kentucky is treated in a similar way, with lower sentences and smaller fines for growing four or less plants, while increasing the number of marijuana seeds planted, increases the penalties if caught.

Best Choice Of Medical Marijuana Seeds

Indoor Marijuana Seeds

Growing marijuana seeds in Kentucky indoors is risky unless you live in a remote location, or take preventative steps to avoid detection. Special lights, air filters and fans are necessary to create a good growing environment, which require an initial investment, as well as increasing the amount of power you use on a daily basis. Indoor plants, grown in a good environment often produce the highest quality marijuana, as a greater degree of control can be exerted over the temperature, air quality, nutrients and light hours the plants receive. Feminized marijuana seeds are perfect for indoor growing, and with each guaranteed to produce a pure, female-only plant, the best choice when germinating and cultivating a limited number of seeds.

Many of the most popular and famous marijuana seeds for sale are hybrids, incorporating the very best of both Indica and Sativa traits and characteristics. Blending both forms of marijuana together has produced some of the very best results, creating strains such as Trainwreck, White Widow and Skunk to name a few. Many of these strains are easy to grow and can be cultivated by both seasoned commercial growers, as well as new and inexperienced ‘hobby’ growers. Selecting the right marijuana seeds to buy for your level of experience, chosen growing method and style, is the best way to ensure a healthy and worthwhile harvest.

Growing Cannabis In Kentucky

The ‘Bluegrass State’ of Kentucky is located in the east south-central region of the United States and covers an area of 40,409 square miles, making it the thirty-seventh largest of the American states. The population of 4.5 million people make it the twenty-sixth most populated state, with Frankfort it’s capital and Louisville it’s largest city.

If you are considering growing cannabis seeds in Kentucky, we advise you to limit your growing to a maximum of four plants. Although neither possession, nor cultivation is permitted in Kentucky, the state laws vary dramatically, depending on the amount of cannabis you are caught in possession of, or the number of plants you are growing.

Despite recent attempts, Kentucky has failed to get any laws regarding the use of medical cannabis, and currently has no program in place, however, further consideration is hoped for in the 2017 legislative session. As such, growing cannabis seeds in Kentucky remains illegal and will, in many cases lead to a period of incarceration, as well as a rather hefty fine.

Possession of cannabis is regarded under one rule, up to eight ounces is usually considered possession ,but smaller amounts can still attract a supply charge, more than that, whatever you say, is viewed as intent to supply or traffic and sentences begin at one year and a $500 maximum fine. Under the eight ounce possession rule however, and your looking at just forty-five days in jail and a $250 maximum fine.

Growing cannabis seeds in Kentucky is viewed in a similar way, with up to and including growing four plants considered a misdemeanor with a maximum of one year in jail and $500 fine. Over four plants, even for first-time offenders, and the punishment rises to between one to five years incarceration and a maximum fine of $10,000. Growing only a limited number of plants, four being the obvious number, provides the maximum yield for the minimum penalties, should you get caught.

The laws regarding growing cannabis seeds in Kentucky are quite vague, and apart from the fact that four plants seems to attract a lesser punishment, open to much interpretation, such as four large or small plants? Grown professionally indoors or wild outside? For medicinal or recreational personal use? The safest way of growing cannabis seeds in Kentucky is to keep it small, quiet and discreet, perhaps considering growing away from your own property.

Quietly Growing Cannabis In Kentucky

The laws make growing cannabis seeds in Kentucky illegal, but that doesn’t always stop everyone. The laws banned alcohol and introduced prohibition, with many ‘good old Kentucky moonshiners’ making a fortune from it. Needless to say, there are plenty of people growing cannabis in Kentucky, both indoors and outside, they just do it quietly and as discreetly as possible.

Growing cannabis seeds in Kentucky is a choice between illegally indoor growing, or illegally outdoor growing, either way it’s illegal and you need to be aware of the risks and punishments incurred should you get caught. If you decide to grow inside, or on your property, limit yourself to four, high quality feminized plants at any one-time. At least if the worst happens, and you do get caught, the jail-time and maximum fines will be manageable and limited, especially if it’s your first offence and there is no evidence of distribution.

The term ‘Guerrilla Growing’ is becoming more popular across many of the social media platforms and 420 forums. Put simply, ‘guerrilla growing’ is the art of growing and producing cannabis away from your own property to minimize the risks of being caught. Although not ‘fool-proof’ (some fools still talk) it provides a means of growing cannabis outdoors while reducing as much of the risk as possible. Popular not only in Kentucky, but in almost every other state that has banned the legal growing of cannabis, many growers are seeking out their own, remote locations, and preparing them for this year’s growing season already.

More seasoned and experienced cannabis growers are turning away from the traditional feminized cannabis seeds in favor of autoflowering seeds. Although the original auto seeds, some two decades ago, were of low quality, producing very small plants with minuscule harvests, genetics have developed, and many growers are enjoying the benefits that autoflowering seeds bring, compared to standard feminized and regular seeds.

The art of ‘guerrilla growing’ is to blend in with the surroundings, using remote locations to grow discreet plants through to maturity and harvest them. In the past, growers planting regular and feminized seeds in Kentucky could expect the plant to grow tall, large and stand out from it’s environment, especially some of the very tall, two meter Sativa’s. These plants were easy to spot from both the air and ground, and often failed to reach complete maturity, often destroyed, discovered or the buds and cola’s stolen, just before harvest.

With their reduced height and compact, bushy growth, autoflowering seeds are far less obtrusive, blending into the natural background and canopy better than the larger, feminized plants. Guaranteed female, and devoid of any male genetics, autoflowering cannabis seeds are becoming the number #1 choice for ‘guerrilla growers’ across many of the states in America. Their ability to grow, flower and bud regardless of the number of daylight hours they receive, has made them a popular choice with cannabis growers from Hawaii to Alaska, and Rhode Island to California.
