How to Get 100 Free Cannabis Seeds

Canada has some of the most liberal marijuana laws on the planet, but there isn’t nearly enough cannabis in Canada for Dana Larsen. 

The Vancouver, B.C.-area longtime marijuana activist and onetime dispensary owner is happy the country licenses medical-marijuana providers and that the current Liberal government has promised to legalize recreational cannabis, sure. That’s more than any other country is doing, aside from possibly Israel, but Canada still need a kick.

Legalizing is taking too long, and there’s no guarantee Canadians will be able to grow their own. (Medical-marijuana patients have to go through an onerous process to be allowed to have a home garden, which is why most don’t bother and go for medicine grown by one of the country’s 34 providers.)

So Larsen wants to blanket the country, from Yukon to Montreal, in five million marijuana plants. And he needs help, which is why his company will mail you 100 free seeds for your own “Ganja Victory Garden.” Provided you are in Canada.

Larsen and his organization, Overgrow Canada, have been at this for a while.

Last year, the company gave away 2.3 million cannabis seeds, he claims. This year, with Trudeau’s government taking its time figuring out how to legalize while renegade marijuana dispensaries in Toronto are getting raided, Larsen’s campaign for marijuana planting is meant to remind us all how we got here—civil disobedience.

Cannabis liberation is about peaceful defiance, and st‎anding up against unjust laws, not only with words, but with concrete action,” he wrote on Overgrow Canada’s website. “So this is my rallying cry for all Canadians. If you love cannabis, if you love freedom, or if you just love your country, then plant some cannabis seeds this spring, and we will all reap a wonderful harvest together.”

Canada has been dragged this far only by citizens openly defying the laws.

Stores sold bongs and books about cannabis until police stopped bothering to bust them (even though those laws are still on the books). Citizen activists smoked marijuana in public, then gave it away and now there are hundreds of dispensaries across the country (which are still technically illegal, but the police are taking a half-hearted stand against them at best).

Call this latest step resistance by mass horticulture.

The seeds are for a strain called “Freedom Dream.” Biologically, it’s bona fide cannabis sativa—though most of us would call it “hemp.” The strain is supposed to have a “very low level” of THC and 10 percent CBD, Overgrow Canada claimed in a widely-circulated email.

So it’s the kind of weed—not psychoactive, totally legal—you used to see on TV in Trailer Park Boys. Then and now, it’s the look that matters, and a sea of green across the country sends a decisive message.

As Overgrow Canada’s Jennifer Cole put it, “the real goal… is to get cannabis plants in public places.”

“Sprout them at home, get them going, then put them in your yard,” she wrote, “or in front of city hall, or in community gardens, or anywhere else where they have a chance to grow and make a statement.”

    Hey Larsen I too would like to get some free seeds. I don’t know how to contact you and I hope that this comment will reach you. Please email me for my address and other information. Thank you so much. Cannabis needs to be naturalized in our communities and culture/society. Thanks again. LEGALIZE DONT CRITIZISE
