Some states are harder to grow in than others. Tennessee is one of those states. Fortunately, there are many rural areas within Tennessee that could be good for marijuana growing.  It’s simply a matter of knowing what to do and where to do it.  

tennessee marijuana laws

For marijuana growing in Tennessee, the state classifies growing 10 plants or less as a felony charge. If caught, growers could face at least a year in jail. Because of these extreme guidelines, Tennessee marijuana growers must be extremely discrete.

Outdoor Growing

Many parts of Tennessee are used for agricultural purposes. In fact, Tennessee is a leading provider of America’s tobacco industry. Growing plants for industry is so common in Tennessee that the state is considering growing another form of cannabis, hemp, as an industry. So don’t be surprised if you see some marijuana-looking plants in this state.

While I don’t sell any hemp seeds, I do sell marijuana ones, and I know that a state good for growing hemp is also good for growing marijuana. So why not take advantage of the natural land?  It is called guerilla growing, and I have information about it in my Marijuana Grow Bible. It is an authority on growing marijuana outdoors without getting caught.  Don’t try to grow in Tennessee without reading it first. The fact is- if you are growing marijuana in Tennessee, you are going to need to know how to guerilla grow.

    Indoor Growing

    Many people prefer to grow their marijuana indoors, simply because of privacy. In some situations, this is the best idea. In others, (such as when you live with roommates) it is not the best plan. There are a variety of ways to grow marijuana indoors without getting caught, but you need to understand the many techniques for doing so. I also cover those in detail in my free Marijuana Grow Bible, but you’ll need to read it to learn them all. (What’s the risk, it’s free…)

    Medical Marijuana

    It may be a little surprise that Tennessee does not have a medical marijuana program, but it has adopted a medical CBD program. In case you are not familiar with it, the medical CBD program lets patients use non-THC cannabis oil for treating seizures. It is a small step toward medical legalization that, unfortunately, removes the marijuana plant from the solution. While it doesn’t help make it easier to grow weed in Tennessee, it does show that the state is at least willing to consider the benefits of this beautiful plant. In the meanwhile, however, I would recommend to keep your growing to yourself.
