The main reason it is, and it will probably stay that way in the foreseeable future, is the signing of a treaty, following the Convention on Narcotic Drugs in 1962. This important international treaty – which as such takes precedence over national law – determines that marijuana is illegal, but not its seeds. The 180 countries (including the UK) that signed the treaty, committed themselves to a definition of narcotics that does not include cannabis seeds.

Although there aren’t that much cannabis seeds stores in the UK, you can definitely find shops that sell cannabis seeds. For example in London but also in city’s like Leicester and Newcastle.

Growing cannabis outdoors in the UK usually involves (at least) one consistent weather condition: rain! Your plants will rarely go thirsty or wilt from the heat. The UK experiences a temperate climate defined by cool, wet winters and warm, wet summers. The country rarely experiences extreme weather events, although flooding and droughts do occur from time to time. The UK sees an average of 133 days of rain and around 1,350 hours of sun per year. This fine balance of rain and sun gives plants plenty of the key resources to develop properly.

North-east: Arctic winds from the north bring cold winters, cool summers, steady rain, and a shorter growing season. Includes Newcastle, York, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen.

North-west: The north-west experiences mild winters and cool summers. Maritime winds bring a whole load of rain all year round. This region covers Northern Ireland, northern Wales, and western Scotland.

Despite the draconian nature of UK cannabis laws, things are improving. CBD products are widely available over the counter in stores, so long as they possess no more than 0.2% THC. The government also allowed doctors to start prescribing cannabis products to patients in 2018. In 2019, the NHS received the all-clear to start prescribing cannabis-based products for Lennox–Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome.

April brings a significant improvement in weather and sunlight. Bluebells, wild garlic, and other aromatic spring flowers lead the charge of emerging plant life. Although April brings a nice, warm heat, frost still poses a significant risk. Growers in most regions will need to keep their plants indoors under lights and on windowsills for a couple more weeks to be safe. However, cultivators with greenhouses or polytunnels will be able to safely move their plants to these structures during April.

Except autoflowering seeds, the flowering of marijuana strains is seasonal, which means that outside growers in the UK germinate their seeds between April and May and, depending on the species, harvest between mid-September and the end of October.

Because this species is strong and also less dependent on the weather, this species is suitable for outdoor growing in the UK.
