Now that the law is changing, Maltese growers need appropriate cannabis seeds to grow in Malta. The question becomes, which strains mature the best in this region?
The Mediterranean Sea and warm weather offer great conditions even for new cultivators. Even without much skill, growers will likely see large harvests from their plants.
Of course, it takes a reliable source for seeds to get the results you expect. Discover our recommended strains and why anyone can start cultivating at home.
Is Weed Legal in Malta?
Residents will soon get to start growing and even buying weed in Malta. Under the new law, you can possess up to seven grams, although consumers who use in front of children will receive a hefty fine. Smoking in public is also illegal, so it's unclear if the country will enjoy Amsterdam-like cafes.
Luckily, people will be able to order and keep cannabis seeds – legal changes in Malta allow no more than four plants to cultivate at home. Whether you use recreationally or prefer medical marijuana, Malta is about to capitalize on cannabis.
Why the Climate is Perfect for Cannabis in Malta
Malta enjoys a long, hot summer and mild, moist winter seasons. That creates consistent daily temperatures ideal for outdoor growers. The island tends to see the warmest weather of its neighbors. Plus, its higher humidity levels make it feel like a tropical paradise. Malta's location allows it to receive more sunlight than most European countries; in fact, the island may see as much as 4,000 hours of annual sunlight.
Sativa plants especially find Malta's warmer climate perfect for growing. Not many countries can boast the same! Next, we’ll introduce our picks for the best cannabis strains to grow in Malta – and there’s a good share of Sativas, because you need to make the most of Malta’s perfect climate and long summers!
