Liverpool is a large city in the north of the UK and as such has several head shops where you can buy cannabis seeds. In the UK it is legal to buy seeds from a shop or online, but it is not currently legal to grow them so exercise great caution if this is your plan.
Growing weed in Liverpool
The climate of Liverpool is wet, and cool, with short summers and mild winters. Apart from the risk of falling foul of the law, it isn't the best location for growing an outdoor crop of weed, which is why we recommend indoor grows.
Growing weed in the UK is illegal and carries heavy penalties. If you are still interested in growing weed in Liverpool or another area of the UK, we recommend only growing a small amount for your personal use, and, ideally, a strain which is high in CBD and low in THC, which is obviously for medicinal use. You might just be able to avoid prosecution if caught, although this is by no means guaranteed.
Discretion is of the utmost importance if you want to grow weed indoors in Liverpool. Don't be tempted to share pictures online, don't talk to your family and friends and invest in a good ventilation system to prevent any unwanted smells from escaping. Grow weed in the spring, summer and autumn to avoid detection from the lack of snow on your rooftop!
