Growing Marijuana In Iowa

Growing Iowa weed has both its challenges and its rewards. It can be a challenge because it is not yet a legalized state. Iowa has not licensed medical marijuana, but it has recognized the benefits of the marijuana plant. The state allows the use of CBD extracts for treating intractable epilepsy. It also has relaxed possession laws for first-time offenders- many times you are only required to go on probation and attend rehab.

    Iowa laws

    Iowa has a marijuana tax. No, this does not mean you have to pay extra for your seeds if you plan on growing Iowa weed.  It does mean that Iowa would like to make money off of your marijuana. The marijuana tax is supposed to be paid by anyone who has possession of the plant. The current tax is $750 per plant.

    According to the Federal government, you should be able to pay for the stamps anonymously; otherwise no one would buy them. If for any reason you are caught with a plant, show the stamp and prevent any additional charges. The tax doesn’t remove any other charges they might try to place on you, but it should reduce the total number of charges received.

    Growing Iowa weed is a challenge, but it is not impossible. The important thing to remember is to be discrete, keep only a small amount of plants, and keep your supply to yourself.  Also, by learning expert stealth growing techniques, and purchasing high-quality seeds, (so that you need fewer plants), you are less likely to get caught. These simple steps will reduce your risk while you safely medicate.

    Growing Iowa weed may be the best way to medicate since purchasing might be risky and difficult. Before you begin, start by downloading and reading the Marijuana Grow Bible. It covers many concerns that indoor and guerilla growers face- including getting caught.

    Growing Iowa weed currently has the same charges as federal law- up to five years for up to 50 kilograms. So it is important that you carefully plan how you grow. There are ways to prevent that from happening, and the Grow Bible covers it in detail.

    The amount of weed you grow will make a difference if you happen to get caught. That is why it is a good idea to start with a small amount of quality seeds that will give you a high yield.

    By purchasing seeds from our store, that is just what you will get -seeds that are guaranteed to germinate and grow into a high-quality marijuana plant.

    If growing Iowa weed it is best that it is done privately. I say this because Iowa has laws specific to marijuana and social gatherings.

    I’d guess that the lawmakers in this state have watched the Reefer Madness movie a bit too many times. Regardless, a stealth approach to growing is a good idea in this heartland state.

      1. I mean Everyone sells CBD right now but it’s not because Kim Reynolds wanted it that way it’s just because they had to scare people for a second so that they could move forward with appearing like they were changing laws but really they were just banking off of the fear that they created for everyone the fear to bye and so I need CBD when it’s not a legal anywhere to begin with so it was just a weird city ordinance thing that only lasted for a month or so but they use that to make another change the laws that they could appear politically progressive.

      2. Iowa laws about cannabis are booty. They tried to do some weird criminalization of CBD or at least make it punishable if you sold it out of the store even though a lot of people already were. And then they had been starting this thing that was a “” medical marijuana” but all they were doing was writing prescriptions for CBD stuff that they won’t even actually write you so they have a store that supposed to sell CBD products by prescription but it’s just all A show to appear politically progressive. But it is all bogus. When I was 19 as a first time offender at 18 months in state prison for one bowl of weed and two pain pills. 19 I went to Fort Dodge State prison with murderers and rapists. At 19. This was just a few years ago.
        Love this site and growing reefer much love to all!❤️

      3. Iowa laws will never improve until our terrible governor is removed from office. I hate Terry Braindead.
