Cannabis Clones & Seeds Now Available via Massachusetts Retailers

Adult-use and medical cannabis retailers in Massachusetts are now allowed to provide seeds and clones for personal home grows.

Full story after the jump.

The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) on Tuesday authorized the sale of cannabis seeds and clones. The products can be sold by adult-use and medical retailers and through licensed delivery services. 

If licensees sell seeds or clones at wholesale or to consumers, the CCC requires that they be tracked via METRC, the state’s seed-to-sale tracking system. Seeds will be tracked in packages, while clones are tracked as immature plants. Clones are also subject to pesticide screening in accordance with state regulations. 

In a statement, CCC Executive Director Shawn Collins said the agency encourages home growers “to follow public awareness tips available through”  

“Safety is paramount to us at the Commission. I’m proud that for the first time ever, Massachusetts residents will now be able to purchase both seeds and clones from licensed retailers and dispensaries that are closely regulated and tracked.” — Collins in a press release 

Retailers may sell up to six clones to an individual customer per day but there is no limit on seeds. Massachusetts law allows adult consumers aged 21 or older to grow up to six plants at home, or up to 12 plants in households with more than one person over 21. Registered medical cannabis patients who have received a Certifying Healthcare Provider recommendation as part of the Medical Use of Marijuana Program may grow up to 12 vegetative plants, 12 flowering plants, and possess an unlimited number of seeds. They may purchase six clones per day, which are not counted against their 60-day cannabis supply.
