The Italian peninsula can be climatically divided into six regions. Cannabis can thrive in most of the regions, but the grower must consider potential climate issues in each one before buying seeds.
Grow shops in Italy operate within a legal framework. You can buy whatever lamp or specific nutrients or paraphernalia you need for cannabis use or cultivation in one of the hundreds of grow shops around the country. Here you can also buy “cannabis light” and CBD products.
Thanks to progress in both legislation and common medical practices, it’s not too complicated to obtain a prescription for medical cannabis in Italy, at least for a limited amount of time and grams. The problem is whether legal medical cannabis is cheaper, better, and more accessible than the dealer’s best stuff or, better yet, your own crop. In many cases, the answer is “no”.
The whole Italian peninsula has always been a perfect place for growing. Cannabis cultivation is active throughout the country, but only EU-registered hemp is legal. Keep on reading to check out our guide on growing cannabis outdoors in Italy this 2021.
All common pests are represented in Italy. Spider mites, thrips, whiteflies, aphids, nematodes, caterpillars, oidium, and any strain of fungus and mould. Ask local growers for the most pernicious, and get prepared for the fight with organic methods. All kinds of weather are represented as well.
How to grow cannabis outdoors in Italy, month by month this 2021.
This is a country with hundreds of microclimates. Fortunately, most of its climate zones are good for growing cannabis. Some of them are perfect. However, the hilly nature of this narrow Mediterranean peninsula, with a continental part, mountains pretty close to the sea, and various local and regional winds, requires a careful choice of growing plot. One hill might be perfect for growing, while the hill just beside it might not.

Legislation: In Italy you cannot sell, buy, smoke or grow cannabis. Soft and hard drugs are the same for Italian law. You must be very carefull if you smoke in public. You will not go in jail for one joint but your driving license and your passport can be suspended. Probably actual left government will be more tollerant and there will be no problem if you have cannabis for personal use.
and a recent report added: ” Fumo (hash) can be Nero (black), Cioccolato (chocolate), marocco (also brown, least good)”
Law enforcement: Police, Carabinieri, Guardia di Finanza, Polizia Locale, (non ever in uniform, pay attention!) are almost averywhere in big cities as Milan.
Pungent Afghan smell. Short bushy plant, good yield and quality. This strain is named after Shiva, Hindu god of transformation, has some heritage from India and likes indoor cultivation thus a good choice for the less experienced grower. Excellent hybrid vigor and yield make this one a snap to grow.
High: Delicious taste. Like a cool mint chewing gum. Icy Shiva will freeze your inners. This is serious De-Mo gear. It’ll have you demotivated within minutes. Planning to clean the house after a session? Hell no! You’re sitting on your bum, watching DVD’s, spilling nutshells on the floor and making more of a mess than there was to start ! This is really nice weed. Strong and good for pre-bedtime sessions, be ready to be flattened
Milan’s officials have given permission for the first Cannabis Social Club to open in Italy. The club will be called ‘Cannabis and Peace’ and will open in Milan in May 2014. The club will be a non-profit club with a similar concept to the ‘Spanish’ style clubs, this means that each member will pay to join the club and will then pay around €7 per gram of weed and around €9 per gram of hash.
The main benefit for Milan is that it will clean up the streets, remove dealers, and allow responsible adults to get their share of recreational/medical pot in a civilised way.
Experience in Spain indicates that the Cannabis Social Club system will expand rapidly, the local Police have supported such clubs in Spain which allow a regulated and taxed system. The social club model also completely removes criminal involvement in the supply and distribution of cannabis.
Italy’s first cannabis social club to open in May 2014!
Dutch Passion send their congratulations to the Italian cannabis community and hope that the Milan social club will be the first of many
