Petersburg cannabis seed giveaway at Happy Trees

The company said they are holding the free event to help people get their hands on seeds that have been difficult to obtain under Virginia’s cannabis laws.

The event starts at noon Saturday at 101 N. Sycamore Street, and goes until supplies last. Auntie Ning’s Food Truck will be on site.

Happy Trees will also be offering a 10% discount on seed starting supplies they will have available for purchase.

Hundreds of people line up to collect free cannabis seeds in Roanoke

A limit of 400 packets of seeds were handed out in less than six hours

Looping around a wellness center in downtown Roanoke, hundreds of people were ready to get their hands on free cannabis seeds.

ROANOKE, Va. – Looping around a wellness center in downtown Roanoke, hundreds of people were ready to get their hands on free cannabis seeds.

16 West Marketplace was packed with people waiting to select a packet of seeds at WellNest Roanoke.

Across the Commonwealth, seeds are being handed out for free since there is no legal way to buy them in the state just yet.

Virginia Seeds representatives helped educate and explain to people how to grow the seeds and what they can be used for.

“It’s just important for us to be able to meet people where they are because the public has all kinds of different needs,” WellNest Roanoke Owner Valarie Angle said. Whether that’s emotional, medical, spiritual. We want to be there for them. So, this is a great opportunity to do that.”

A limit of 400 packets of seeds were handed out in less than six hours.

Angle said as cannabis becomes more of a tool in holistic healings she encourages the use of products and welcomes them in her store.

Lynchburg man giving away thousands of free cannabis seeds to clear up confusion over new law

LYNCHBURG, Va. – One man is working to clear up confusion over a new law.

As of Thursday, cannabis is now legal for people 21 and up to have, use and grow in Virginia. However, unless a doctor has signed off on a prescription, there’s no legal way to buy it.

Many in Lynchburg have come to call Jonathan Zinski Virginia’s Johnny Appleseed of cannabis.

“I am very happy about it,” he says.

By day, he’s a customer service rep for a major corporation. By night, he’s a guy pursuing a passion — running a small hemp farm about 20 miles outside of town.

“It’s a huge grey area right now,” he says. “They sped up the process of legalizing possession and use.”

In the Commonwealth, you can now legally have and use cannabis. There’s just one problem.

“They still haven’t figured out buying and selling,” Zinski says.

The only way to legally get seeds is to get them for free, so that’s what Zinski set out to do.

After spending countless hours seeking donations from major cannabis producers, he passed out thousands of seeds to local retailers to give to customers.

“Unfortunately, I can’t be growing anything large scale with THC yet,” he says. “I would love to see how the law pans out as far as being more fair to smaller growers, people who don’t have money.”

It will be three more years before you can buy and sell in the commonwealth. Zinski says we can’t wait. He wants to get seeds into as many hands as possible.
