Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds come from a controversial cannabis plant. Instead of getting you high, they deliver a blast of essential nutrients and potential benefits for your heart, brain, and skin. Whether you want to improve your health or enrich your diet, hemp seeds have got you covered. Read on to learn how to get the most out of them and prevent unpleasant side effects.

What Are Hemp Seeds?

Hemp seeds are the seeds of a cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa). Unlike marijuana, hemp is a cannabis strain low in psychoactive THC, and people mostly grow it for industrial and nutritional purposes and CBD extraction [1].

“Miracle plant” sounds like a cliche, but here’s why hemp deserves this label [2, 3, 4, 5]:

  • Hemp seeds are packed with essential nutrients
  • Cannabinoids from hemp have a range of potential benefits
  • Hemp fiber is perfect for making ropes, clothes, and paper
  • It can replace plastics and even build solid constructions
  • Hemp is a potential source of biofuel

Each potential use of hemp deserves a separate article (a book, actually); this one will be about hemp seeds nutrition, potential health benefits, and precautions.

Hemp seeds deliver an array of essential nutrients and have a mild nutty flavor that blends well in smoothies and spreads. Get ready to meet one of the most nutritious foods on our planet!

18:3 n-6 (gamma-linolenic acid) g 1.34 0.4
Trans fats g 0 0

Hemp seeds contain impressive 11.5 g of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and zero trans fats per serving. PUFAs are super-important for your health as they [6, 7, 8, 9, 10]:

  • Combat inflammation
  • Protect the heart and blood vessels
  • Enable brain development
  • Improve skin health and complexion

Hemp seeds are rich in alpha-linolenic acid, which is an essential omega-3 fatty acid. One serving delivers 160% (men) and 230% (women) of the daily value [11].

The second essential fatty acid is linoleic acid (omega-6), and hemp seeds will supply you with 68% (w) or 48% (m) of the daily value per serving.

The omega-6/omega-3 ratio of hemp fatty acids is 2-3/1, which most experts consider optimal for keeping inflammation in check. Western diets have a ratio of 15-17/1 and crave good omega-3 sources such as hemp seeds [1, 12, 13].

But healthy fats are just one part of their superb nutritional profile…

Protein

With 32% protein, hemp seeds are among the best protein sources you can get.

You will often hear claims about the poor quality of plant protein, but that’s not the case with hemp seeds. Protein quality score considers the content of essential amino acids and protein digestibility. With a value of 83.5-92, hemp seeds beat even some types of meat [14].

Hemp seeds are high in arginine, an amino acid that boosts cardiovascular health and relieves inflammation [15, 16, 17].

Vitamins and Minerals

Having a hard time achieving the optimal intake of different minerals and vitamins?

One serving (30g, 3 tbsp) of hemp seeds will provide you with [18, 19, 15, 20]:

  • Magnesium: 53% (m), 68% (w) DV
  • Iron: 30% (m), 13 % (w) DV
  • Zinc: 27% (m), 37% (w) DV
  • Phosphorus: 70% DV
  • Copper: 53% DV
  • Manganese: 100% (m), 128% (w) DV
  • Thiamin (vitamin B1): 33% DV

*m=men; w=women; DV=daily value for adults

Hemp Seeds vs. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are another amazing source of healthy fats and other nutrients. Hemp seeds are more nutritious in general, but chia seeds have the following advantages (Table 2):

  • Fewer calories
  • Much more fiber
  • More vitamin A
  • Much more calcium
  • More omega-3 fatty acids

Hemp seeds are higher in all other nutrients, especially protein, unsaturated fats, and minerals.

Table 2 — Hemp Seeds vs. Chia Seeds Nutritional Profiles [15, 21]

Nutrients per 100 g Unit Hemp Seeds Chia Seeds
Energy kcal 553 486
Protein g 31.56 16.54
Lipids (fat) g 48.75 30.74
Carbohydrates g 8.67 42.12

But you don’t have to choose between hemp and chia seeds, right? Combine these two for optimal nutrition and a range of health benefits.

Hemp Seeds Health Benefits

How It Works

As mentioned above, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in their optimal ratio reduce inflammation, soothe the skin, and lower the risk of various chronic diseases [6, 7, 8, 9, 22].

Hemp seeds contain unique polyphenols – cannabisinins – with potent antioxidant activity. Hemp protein and flavonoids such as quercetin also combat free radicals [23, 24, 25].

Arginine and other active compounds in hemp protein shield the heart and blood vessels [17, 26].

1) Heart Health

According to different reviews and clinical trials, optimal intake of alpha-linolenic acid and other omega-3s found in hemp seeds can [27, 28, 29, 30]:

  • Reduce cholesterol and blood lipids
  • Enhance heart function and protect blood vessels
  • Decrease blood pressure
  • Prevent blood clotting

Arginine from hemp protein stimulates the production of nitric oxide (relaxing blood vessels) and cuts the levels of inflammatory CRP, according to a study of over 13,000 participants. Both effects can prevent heart disease [17, 31, 32].

Cholesterol and Blood Lipids

Omega-3 fatty acids help to keep blood lipids in check, but the specific effects of hemp seeds and their oil are not well studied in humans.

In 14 healthy volunteers, hemp seed oil (30 ml daily for 4 weeks) had only minor effects on blood lipids and cholesterol [33].

Low doses of hemp seed oil (3 g daily) enriched red blood cells of 36 children with omega-3 fatty acids but didn’t affect their blood lipid profile [34].

In animal trials, hemp seeds lowered cholesterol levels and provided antioxidant support [35, 36].

In test tubes, hemp protein acted similar to statins (lipid-lowering drugs) by blocking an enzyme vital for the production of LDL cholesterol. According to another cell-based experiment, hemp seed extract may prevent LDL oxidation, a major cause of atherosclerosis [37, 38, 39].

Still, this doesn’t mean hemp seeds would do the same in the human body.

2) Brain and Nerve Protection

Dietary fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, are essential for mental health and brain development. Thanks to their high omega-3 content and other anti-inflammatory components, hemp seeds may protect the brain and nerves [40].

Multiple Sclerosis

In 100 patients with multiple sclerosis, a combination of hemp seed and evening primrose oils helped repair nerve damage and improved the symptoms [41].

Researchers observed the ability of hemp seed oil to combat autoimmune nerve impairment (as seen in MS) in a study on mice [42].

3) Constipation

In a clinical trial of 120 patients, hemp seed pills (15 g daily for 8 weeks) improved the symptoms of constipation by 43% vs. 8% placebo [43].

Hemp seeds stimulated the colon and relieved constipation in one study on rats [44].

Note: The majority of fiber, which supports bowel movements, is in the outer shell of hemp seeds. Whole seeds would thus be more beneficial for constipation, but their consumption comes with certain risks (see “Hemp Seeds FAQ” for more details).

4) Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a complex condition that involves obesity, insulin resistance, and increased blood lipids [45].

According to a large observational trial (1.2K patients), high intake of arginine from plant sources can lower the risk of metabolic syndrome by 42%. With 4.6 g of arginine per 100 g, hemp seeds are among the best plant sources of this amino acid [46, 47].

Consumption of both soluble and insoluble fiber from hemp seeds may reduce the risk of diabetes [48, 49].

In cell studies, hemp protein cut the levels of glucose using the same mechanism as diabetes drugs called gliptins. Scientists speculate if hemp protein may enhance their potency while reducing side effects, but the available evidence is far from conclusive [50, 51].

5) PMS and Menopause

Supplementation with essential fatty acids found in hemp seeds (1-2 g daily for 6 months) reduced the symptoms of PMS in 120 women [52].

The beneficial effects mostly come from gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which may reduce inflammation and maintain hormonal balance [53, 54].

When women enter menopause, they lose the beneficial effects of estrogen and often face unpleasant mood swings. Hemp seeds reduced anxiety in postmenopausal rats [55, 56].

Bone loss and osteoporosis are one of the hallmarks of menopause. A supplement with GLA increased bone mineral density (BMD) in 65 older women [57].

Hemp Seed Oil Benefits for the Skin

Hemp seeds are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) that nurture the skin and prevent disorders such as [58, 6, 7]:

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Skin UV damage

Although people tend to focus on omega-3s, GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid from hemp seeds that delivers powerful skin benefits.

6) Eczema and Dry Skin

In 20 patients with eczema, hemp seed oil (30 ml daily) supplied the skin with PUFAs and reduced symptoms such as skin irritation. It showed better results than olive oil [59].

According to clinical trials, foods and oils rich in gamma-linolenic acid can soften the skin and relieve eczema [60, 61, 62].

7) Acne

Propionibacterium acnes is, you guessed it, a leading cause of acne. Hemp seed extract inhibited the growth and reduced inflammation caused by this germ in test tubes [63].

A review of herbs used for skin conditions underlined hemp seed oil as a potential remedy for dry skin, eczema, acne, psoriasis, and more [64].

Hemp seeds are rich in oil, but it’s not sure if they would deliver the same health benefits.

Limitations and Caveats

Despite the fantastic nutritional profile of hemp seeds and their potential health benefits, we lack solid clinical data to shed more light on this peculiar food. Most findings stem from low-quality clinical, animal, and cell-based research.

Also, the majority of trials have examined hemp seed oil, isolated nutrients, and active components but not the seeds themselves. Researchers emphasize the need to better understand the metabolism of hemp seeds and their nutrients [1].

Now let’s see if there’s anything about hemp seeds that should concern you.

Hemp Seeds Side Effects

Clinical trials with hemp seeds and their oil haven’t reported major side effects in children and adults [33, 43, 41, 34].

Hemp seeds are natural plant food, and there’s no apparent reason to avoid them unless you’re allergic to hemp (Cannabis sativa).

But… There’s public concern about psychoactive THC in hemp seeds, and it may be more than just “anti-cannabis propaganda.”

Although the seeds contain only trace amounts of THC, CBD and other cannabinoids (even in marijuana strains), contamination with THC from the plant is possible [65].

As a matter of fact, doctors reported a case of one child with mildly altered behavior due to 3-week hemp seed oil consumption [66].

Some lab analyses confirmed there’s a possibility of hemp seed THC contamination. If you are concerned about this, consult with your doctor before consuming hemp seeds. To learn more about this issue and how to overcome it, read “Hemp Seeds FAQ” below [67].

How to Eat Hemp Seeds

Tips

In terms of quantity, you can start with 1 tablespoon daily and increase to a standard serving for seeds: 28-30g or 3 tbsp. Hemp seed oil showed beneficial effects in doses of 20-30 ml daily.

If you’re aiming to boost your nutrition, stick with the seeds because they contain healthy fats + loads of other essential nutrients.

Hemp seeds have a rich nutty flavor, and they blend well in salads, smoothies, spreads, oatmeal, etc. They’re also a good option for people with nut allergies. Delicious hemp seeds recipes are easy to come across – go find your favorites.

Besides the oil, other products made from hemp seeds include:

  • Hemp butter: blended hemp seeds +/- added oil
  • Hemp flour: a byproduct of oil extraction (no oil)
  • Hemp protein: hemp flour with a higher protein content
  • Hemp milk: blended hemp seeds with water +/- other ingredients

Hemp Seeds FAQ

What Is in Hemp Hearts?

Hemp hearts are seeds without the shell, also known as hulled/shelled hemp seeds or hemp kernels. They are more common, tastier, and easier to digest than the whole seeds.

On the other hand, whole seeds contain much more fiber and may help relieve constipation. The shell is quite hard so you may want to go for ground seeds or pills. Also, you can sprout whole seeds only.

Do Hemp Seeds Contain THC? Can They Get You High?

First of all, hemp is an ‘industrial’ strain of Cannabis sativa with negligible THC content. Secondly, the seeds themselves contain only trace amounts of cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, even in marijuana strains.

However, THC from the plant may end up on the outer surface of the seeds during the harvest or storage. In most countries, the official limit for THC content in hemp seeds is 10 mcg/1g (10 ppm), but some products may have up to 12 times more THC [67].

But how’s that if hemp doesn’t contain THC? Well, due to weak regulations, some producers actually cultivate THC-rich strains instead of industrial hemp [68].

Still, it’s highly unlikely that eating the seeds will get you high. To be 100% sure your product has no THC:

  • Buy from trusted brands that test their products for THC content
  • Choose hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds) instead of the whole seeds
  • If you consume whole seeds, though, make sure to wash them thoroughly first

Hemp Seeds and Drug Tests

If hemp seeds can be contaminated with THC, can they also cause you to fail a routine drug test? Well, they might just do so! Some people did have detectable urine THC levels after consuming hemp seed oil, butter, and other products [69, 70].

On the other hand, some studies didn’t detect THC after regular hemp seed consumption [71, 72].

If you follow the above steps, you won’t have issues with THC contamination and drug test results. To stay on the safe side, however, you may want to skip hemp seeds a few days before the scheduled testing.

Takeaway

Hemp seeds are made from industrial cannabis (Cannabis sativa), also known as hemp. They are loaded with high-quality protein, healthy fats, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, and more. The polyunsaturated fatty acids in hemp seeds have an ideal omega-6/omega-3 ratio.

Overall, this superfood may combat inflammation, protect the heart, brain, and blood vessels, and soothe the skin. But despite their promising health effects, clinical research on hemp seeds and their therapeutic potential remains limited.

You can use hemp seeds in salads, smoothies, spreads, oatmeal, and other delicious recipes. Butter, oil, milk, flour, and protein powder from hemp seeds are also available.

To avoid contamination with psychoactive THC, make sure to buy from verified suppliers who test their products. If you consume whole seeds (with the shell), wash them thoroughly first.

Hemp seeds deliver a blast of essential nutrients and benefits for your heart, brain, and skin. Here’s how to use them.

Hemp heart seeds side effects

Hemp is a plant. It is the same species of plant as cannabis. But unlike cannabis, hemp contains very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), less than 0.3%. It is legal to sell hemp and hemp products in the U.S. But it is not legal to isolate cannabinoids from hemp to include in foods or dietary supplements. This is because one of the cannabinoids, called cannabidiol, is approved as a prescription drug. Since it’s a prescription drug, it can’t be included in dietary supplements. Hemp flowers, leaves, seed, seed oil, and protein are used as food and/or medicine.

Hemp is used for constipation, high cholesterol, eczema (atopic dermatitis), arthritis, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Hemp is used to make cloth, cosmetics, rope, printer’s ink, wood preservative, detergents, soaps, and lighting oil.

Don’t confuse hemp with Canadian hemp, hemp agrimony, cannabis, or cannabidiol (CBD).

How does it work ?

Uses & Effectiveness ?

Insufficient Evidence for

  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis). Taking hemp seed oil might relieve some symptoms of eczema, including dryness and itchiness. But it doesn’t seem to work better than taking olive oil.
  • Inherited tendency towards high cholesterol (familial hypercholesterolemia). Early research shows that taking hemp seed oil doesn’t lower cholesterol levels in children with familial hypercholesterolemia who are already following a low-fat diet.
  • Obesity. Early research shows that taking a hemp oil extract does not reduce weight in overweight adults.
  • Stress. Early research shows that taking a hemp oil extract does not reduce stress in overweight adults.
  • Arthritis.
  • Asthma.
  • Cancer.
  • Constipation.
  • Glaucoma.
  • Headache.
  • Hypertension.
  • Insomnia.
  • Malaria.
  • Menstrual cramps.
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS).
  • Other conditions.

More evidence is needed to rate hemp for these uses.

Side Effects

Special Precautions and Warnings

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn’t enough reliable information to know if hemp is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Children: There isn’t enough information to know whether hemp can be safely used by children. Hemp seed oil has caused rare cases of sleepiness and blood shot eyes in children.

Allergy to cannabis: People who are allergic to cannabis might also be allergic to hemp. Use hemp with caution if you are allergic to cannabis.

Low blood pressure: Hemp protein might lower blood pressure. In some people this might make blood pressure fall too low. Use hemp protein with caution if you have low blood pressure.

Surgery: Hemp protein might lower blood pressure. In some people this might make blood pressure fall too low, especially during surgery. Stop using hemp protein at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Cannabis Seeds in Canada

The seed bank neuroseeds.nl offers the best cannabis seeds for sale of different varieties and types. Here you can buy cannabis seeds online in Canada including photoperiodic and auto-flowering feminized varieties. The seeds of both types are feminized o guarantee success and high yield. Read more articles about how to grow weed indoors and outdoors to learn more about nuances of the cultivation of cannabis. You can also contact our specialists for advice on the seeds, fertilizers and methods of growing.

What are the features of photoperiodic weed?

These seeds are also called regular. Such seeds occur in nature, which means they are not genetically modified. However, most of such seeds were carefully selected. The vegetative period of such weed depends on the duration of daylight. If it is more than 12 hours, then the marijuana plants continue to grow. When the daylight is shorter than 12 hours, plants begin to bloom.

Photoperiodic varieties are distinguished by:

● beautiful and natural appearance;

● delicious taste and aroma;

● high content of cannabinoids;

The only shortcoming is that the grower needs to regulate the light schedule. However experienced growers love it because they are able to adjust the plant development.

In the harsh climate of Canada, photoperiod cannabis seeds are best grown indoors or in greenhouses. Canadian summers are too short and cold and may prevent plants from fully ripening.

There are two main varieties of marijuana – Indica and Sativa. Indica has a calming and relaxing effect while Sativa gives you a burst of energy and joy.

What are the advantages of auto-flowering cannabis varieties?

Crossing Indica, Sativa and Ruderalis creates the auto-flowering cannabis varieties. It made possible the creation of highly productive and highly resistant cannabis.

The main feature of auto-flowering weed is to grow and bloom regardless of the length of daylight hours. It is a big advantage because it makes growing marijuana easy and worry-free.

In addition, they have other features:

● Fast growth. It is great for Canada with the shorter agricultural season;

● Smaller plants make it suitable for growing indoors;

● high productivity in comparison with regular varieties;

● high cannabinoid content (THC, CBD and etc).

Autoflowering varieties can be grown in open ground in Canada. You do not need to worry that the plants will not have time to ripen. Plant the seeds in the prepared soil in late April when you are confident the weather will be warm.

What are the best cannabis seeds to buy in Canada?

The question has many answers. All answers have to take into consideration the harsh climate conditions of the country. However, it should not stop you from growing your own weed indoors or outdoors. Everything depends on the experience of the grower and his or her preferences. All varieties of cannabis have advantages and disadvantages. The only thing you can’t argue with is that auto-flowering weed is much easier to grow because you do not need to adjust lighting every day. But again, the process can be automated by setting a timer.

Where can I buy legal weed seeds?

Cannabis is not legal in many countries but it refers to the use of cannabis. However, the sale and purchase of cannabis seeds is a completely legal business. You do not risk anything if you do not advertise the cultivation of marijuana. We also do not recommend selling marijuana

is it safe to order marijuana seeds

A guide to buying cannabis seeds

The first couple months of the year is a great time to start planning your cannabis garden to get a head start on the outdoor growing season, which roughly runs from March to November, depending on where you live.

Navigating the cannabis seed market can be challenging when states have different degrees of legality. This guide will answer your questions on buying seeds so you can be on your way to growing your own cannabis.

Is it legal to buy marijuana seeds?

Marijuana seeds are considered a cannabis product just like flower, edibles, and concentrates. Their legality depends on which state you live in. People living in states with adult-use legalization can buy, produce, and sell seeds within their own state, but seeds can’t cross state lines. People living in states with medical marijuana legalization can only buy seeds if they have a medical card.

Seed banks exist outside of the US and can sell them for “souvenir purposes,” but it is illegal to bring seeds into the US and Customs will seize any cannabis seeds they find in packages or on a person.

Where can I buy cannabis seeds?

Many world-renowned seed banks are overseas in the Netherlands, the UK, Spain, and other countries where cannabis laws are less restricted. Seed banks provide seeds from a variety of different breeders.

In states with adult-use legalization or a medical marijuana program, you can buy seeds within your own state, either at a dispensary or through a specific seed company’s website.

How to buy cannabis seeds online

Before you purchase seeds online, you’ll need to figure out what strain you want to grow and what breeder you want to buy from.

Because US federal law still prohibits cannabis, it can be hard to find information on seed banks and breeders. Breeders who have a long history and positive reputation are usually a good place to start. To get an idea of what well-established breeders look like, check out:

Europe

  • Sensi Seeds
  • DNA Genetics
  • Dinafem
  • Green House Seeds

US

  • Southern Humboldt Seed Collective
  • Exotic Genetix

You can also do some research and find an online grow journal that details the whole growing process of a specific strain from a particular breeder. Through these, you’ll be able to look over another grower’s specific notes and see pictures of the final results.

If you grow some seeds and like the results, try growing another strain from that same breeder and see how it goes.

How to buy cannabis seeds at a dispensary

Although this option is only available to people living in states with medical and adult-use legalization, buying marijuana seeds at the dispensary is far more straightforward. However, your options are more limited.

Dispensary staff should be able to give you information on the seeds they’re selling, but keep in mind that a lot of dispensaries focus on selling flower and end-products. It’s a good idea to call ahead and talk to staff to see if they are knowledgeable about seeds and can give you specific information on growing.

How to look for quality genetics when buying marijuana seeds

Breeders talk about “unstable genetics,” meaning that a seed’s origin is unknown. Make sure that when you buy a packet of seeds that it or the breeder who produced them can list where the seeds came from and how they were crossed and/or backcrossed to get the seed that you hold in your hand. If you can’t get a seed’s history, it could be anything and the result of poor breeding practices.

An inexperienced breeder might cross a male and a female one time and sell the resulting seeds as a new hybrid strain, but professional breeders usually put their strains through several rounds of backcrossing to stabilize the genetics and ensure consistent plants that reflect those genetics.

Which strain should I grow?

Even one weed plant can produce a lot of buds come harvest time, so make sure you grow a strain you like. Note strains you enjoy when you pick something up at the dispensary or smoke with friends, and look for seeds of it when you want to start growing.

Some strains are easier to grow than others because they are more resistant to mold and pests, so if you’re new to growing, you may want to try an easier strain to start.

Some strains also take longer to grow than others. Depending on whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors, you may want to grow a quicker marijuana strain if you live in a climate that get cold and wet early in the season. For example, indicas are known for having a shorter flowering time than sativas.

All of this information should be available to you when buying quality seeds.

What’s the difference between regular, feminized, and autoflower seeds?

Regular seeds

If you buy a packet of regular seeds, they’ll come with a mix of males and females. A lot of cultivators prefer to grow these because they haven’t been backcrossed—essentially inbred—as much as feminized or autoflower seeds. You’ll need to sex out the seeds once their reproductive organs show during the flowering phase and discard the males—because they don’t produce buds and will pollenate females, resulting in seeded flowers.

Feminized seeds

Seeds can come feminized, meaning you can just put them in soil and start growing for buds. These seeds are guaranteed to be bud-producing females and growing them cuts out the step of having to sex out plants and discard the males.

It also reduces the risk of having a stray male sneak into your crop—just one male can pollinate a huge crop, causing your females to focus their energies on producing seeds instead of buds.

Autoflower seeds

Autoflower plants change from the vegetative to flowering state with age, not the changing of their light cycle. They have a short grow-to-harvest time and can be ready to harvest in as little as 2 ½ to 3 months from when you put the seeds in the ground. The downside is that, typically, they are less potent, but autoflower seeds are great for people who want to grow cannabis but don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it.

How much do marijuana seeds cost?

Cannabis seeds usually come in a pack of 10 or 12 seeds and start at around $40 a pack and go up from there. Some high-end genetics can run between $200 to $500 a pack.

Feminized and autoflower seeds will cost more because more breeding work was put in to creating them and they take less time for the grower to get buds.

How many seeds should I buy? Are they all going to survive?

When you grow any amount of seeds, a percentage of them won’t germinate, even if you get them from a reputable breeder. Always count on a few not germinating or dying off, or roughly 1/4 of the total you put in the ground.

When growing regular seeds, some won’t germinate and some will have to be discarded because they’ll turn out to be males. With feminized seeds, some won’t germinate, but a higher percentage of them will turn into flowering plants because there won’t be any males.

If you want six total cannabis plants to harvest for buds and are growing from regular seeds, start with about 4 times as many, or 24 seeds. Some won’t germinate and some will turn out to be males, and then you’ll want to discard down to the six best phenotypes. If growing feminized seeds, you can probably start with about twice as many seeds in this case (about 12); a couple won’t germinate, and then discard down to the six best phenotypes.

Make sure to always stay within your state’s legal limit of growing plants.

How do I buy strain-specific cannabis seeds?

Strains like Blue Dream, Gelato, and Original Glue have gained in popularity in recent years. Check out these resources on how to buy these types of cannabis seeds:

How to buy weed seeds safely?

There are several ways to safely buy cannabis seeds. In countries, such as the Netherlands, where growing cannabis is legal (read: tolerated), cannabis seeds can often be bought in growshops and coffeeshops. In some countries it is even possible to buy medical marijuana at pharmacies as an MS patient. However, there are still plenty of countries (such as Australia, some parts of the U.S. and countries in Asia) where buying weed is still illegal. So how do you get cannabis seeds?

How do you get cannabis seeds?

How do you get marijuana seeds if you live in a country where buying cannabis seeds is still illegal? Simple, you buy marijuana seeds online. This may sound scary, but especially if you live in a country where you cannot or are not allowed to buy cannabis seeds, this is the only solution. Buying cannabis seeds online is safe and discreet and in most cases they are delivered on time. Even in countries where cannabis seeds are illegal. Luckily, in most European countries you can buy cannabis seeds online without any problems. Would you like to know more about this subject? Read the article ‘Is buying cannabis seeds (online) legal?

What should you pay attention to when buying cannabis seeds online?

When you decide to buy your seeds online, you also want to make sure you receive good seeds. Unfortunately, there are still online shops that scam customers, offer poor customer service, offer no or very few guarantees and sell bad seeds.

Checklist

To prevent your purchase from turning into a disappointment, it is wise to do some research before making an online purchase. But even if you do a thorough investigation, it can always happen that you buy your cannabis seeds at the wrong place.

To help you find the right seed bank, we’ll give you some useful tips with this checklist below.

  1. Check the legislation in your country
  2. Buy at a European seed bank
  3. Start with a small order
  4. Divide your order
  5. Choose a discrete payment method
  6. Use a different name
  7. Use a different email address
  8. Have your shipment delivered in a mailbox
  9. Choose a shipping method without the need for a signature
1. Check the legislation in your country

Although the law in the Netherlands allows small quantities of cannabis seeds to be sold to customers, this does not mean that if you live abroad, growing and germinating cannabis seeds is allowed in your country. We therefore strongly recommend that you check the lawfulness of cannabis seeds in your country and check the regulations regarding the import of seeds before making a purchase.

2. Buy at a European cannabis shop

If you’ve Googled a bit, you may have noticed that many shops are located in Canada, the United Kingdom and of course the Netherlands. Dutch online cannabis shops are often located in or around Amsterdam: the source where the highest quality seeds come from and where the most knowledge can be found. For the best quality cannabis seeds it is therefore best to order from a reputable (Dutch) seed bank with a long track record.

3. Start with a small order

If you buy cannabis seeds more often from a certain cannabis seed shop then this rule doesn’t apply, but if you’re planning to buy cannabis seeds for the first time and you want to do this safely, then we recommend you start with a small order. After all, with a small order the risks are low. You can test the reliability of the shop, as well as the quality of the seeds, without it costing you a lot of money.

4. Divide your order

If you plan to order multiple (varieties of) seeds, it is advisable to divide your order over multiple purchases. For example, by placing a small order at different times or by buying cannabis seeds from different online providers. If an order does not arrive, there is a good chance that the delivery from the other provider will arrive. As an extra tip: pay attention to delivery guarantees when you make your purchase. For example, Weedseedsexpress offers a delivery guarantee with every purchase.

5. Choose a discrete payment method

Nowadays, online payments with credit cards have become very secure. As with Weedseedsexpress, most shops offer the possibility to buy cannabis seeds with a credit card via an external payment processor.

Buying cannabis seeds with a credit card offers advantages: first of all, the online seed bank only receives the payment without your credit card details. Secondly, the payment processor destroys the customer data after the payment has been made.

Furthermore, reputable online seed banks ensure that no marijuana related descriptions are linked to the transaction (as Weedseedsexpress does by default).

However, are you still a little reluctant to use your credit card? Then there is always a possibility to purchase a prepaid credit card. Often there are also alternative payment options offered such as:]

  • Bitcoins
  • Cash money
  • Bank transfer
6. Use another name

If you don’t want your name to be associated with marijuana related products, you can choose to order without Track & Trace. You don’t have to sign for the parcel/envelope when it is delivered. In that case you can choose to use a different name, abbreviation or only initials at the mailing address.

7. Use a different email address

Besides changing your name, you can also use a general email address without mentioning your own name. It’s very easy to create a new and free email address for example Gmail or Outlook.com. And do you want to stay completely under the radar when you’re looking for cannabis seeds? Then use the search engine Qwant. This search engine does not store any personal data. No one will ever know that you have typed in ‘How to get cannabis seeds? or ‘How to buy cannabis seeds safely online’ ;).

8. Have your order delivered to a P.O. Box address

There are several seed banks that deliver weed seeds to a P.O. box address. Would you like that too? Then you can easily rent a PO box. Of course, you can also ask friends or family whether they would like to receive the order.

9. Choose a shipping option without signature

Registered mail such as Track & Trace mail usually requires a signature upon receipt. So for privacy reasons you can order without Track & Trace, but the disadvantage is that you cannot track the status of your order.

Buy your cannabis seeds safely and discreetly at Weedseedsexpress

It goes without saying that Weedsexpress complies with all privacy and warranty conditions. In short, when you buy your cannabis seeds from us it is safe and discreet. Would you like to buy online somewhere else? Then it is always good to check the reputation of the shop. You can do this for example Trustpilot.com.

Grapefruit is a mostly sativa variety from Female Seeds and can be cultivated indoors (where the plants will need a flowering time of ±56 days ) and outdoors . Female Seeds’ Grapefruit is a THC dominant variety and is/was only available as feminized seeds.

Female Seeds’ Grapefruit Description

Logo Female Seeds Female Seeds Grapefruit The initial Grapefruit was created in 1998 as a regular strain from a special C99 clone crossed with a Thai Sativa and an automatic strain to improve flowering time. So, this strain has been around for nearly 20 years! Grapefruit was improved over the years and the female version was launched in 2003 at the start of the company Female Seeds. The Grapefruit currently being sold stems from an amazing line Ferry created in 2007. The parents of that line were selected on two criteria: the amazingly strong Grapefruit/Pineapple smell and the moderate height of the phenotypes.

It is an extremely fast flowering cannabis strain. Grapefruit, from the start, has always been an amazing yielder of lusciously smelling bud. The current Grapefruit has been stabilized over several generations resulting in an early maturing and massive yielding beast. Make sure you have the humidity under control in the latter stages of flowering and that your ventilation works. As once these babies fill up the buds can be susceptible to mold.

The Grapefruit is a highly praised and highly sought-after strain due to the amazing smell and taste. The outstanding sweet and sour taste of pineapple and grapefruit is truly mouthwatering. The effect is a soaring, head high that inspires creativity and is long-lasting. Classic Sativa stuff. All in all, a true winner!

Grapefruit cannabis seeds

Sativa Cannabis Strains: Typically, Sativa strains have higher ratios of THC than Indica and usually lower percentages of CBD. They are typically taller growing with narrower leaves and are much lighter green in colour. Sativa Cannabis Strains originate from Countries such as Columbia, Thailand, Mexico and South East Asia. Cannabis Sativa effects you in a powerful and cerebral way and is known more for its head buzz rather than the Indica body stone. Effects can be energetic and trippy and most high strength Sativa strains are less suited to novice beginner smokers.

High THC Sativa strains medicinally are suited to those looking for spiritual wisdom and creativity. Sativa Strains are more uplifting and psychedelic in the high they offer. If you are a sufferer of Paranoia and Anxiety be careful with high strength Sativa Strains as they may increase these symptoms.

Indica Cannabis Strains: Typically Indica Strains have higher ratios of CBD content than Sativa and slightly lower rates of THC. They are typically shorter in height with big broad fan leaves and very dense Buds. Plants grow typically uniformed and of a darker green colour. Indica marijuana strains originate from the hash making countries such as Afghanistan, Morocco, Tibet and parts of India. They are often very resinous plants ideally suited to making pollen for the connoisseur hash lovers. The high is more associated with a body stone, very relaxing and for the laid-back smokers who want to sit back and chill.

If you want to switch off Indica Cannabis Strains are a good option. Indica Strains can send you very deep into your own thoughts. Indica’s are better known for their body stone making them more beneficial to patience with arthritic and muscle pain problems. Indica’s are also known to be very good in relieving headaches and migraines. Indica’s are great for people with sleeping disorders and also great for eating disorders. People suffering from anxiety may see better results from smoking Indica based strains as the CBD content is typically higher but they can be less suited for treating depression.

Indica & Sativa Balanced Strains: Cross breeding of cannabis genetics has enabled modern strains to be perfectly balanced with 50% Indica and 50% Sativa. Medicinally this is perfect as you get the best of both worlds with a well-rounded effect on your body and mind. Balanced Marijuana genetics enable you to get a body stone and still be motivated to socialise and get things done at the same time. They give good pain relief but don’t make you stuck to the sofa and for most balanced strains would be most suited but everyone is different.

Strain: Grapefruit
Seed bank: Our Own Source
Genetics: Cinderella 99 x Grape Sativa
Flowering Period: 56 Days Possible
Harvest: end of October
Indoor height: 50-80 cm
Yield: High Yielding Sativa
THC Content: Medium
Characteristics: Short, Fast and Fast Flowering Sativa

Grapefruit is a very fast flowering Sativa cannabis strain that has been known to finish in just 56 days of flowering not including vegatative growing stage. You can veg this strain for just one week from seed giving a total growing time of just 63 days from seed. Really it should take a little longer with veg so 10 weeks is more of a realistic target to aim for. Imagine in just 10 weeks time you could be smoking Grape Fruit not just reading about it 😉

Grapefruit performs well in most garden types as the plants dont behave in a normal Sativa way. This Sativa marijuana strain will grow short and fat with dense grape like buds. The onset of flowering kicks in very fast and fully developed buds will have a very nice slightly purple colour to them.

The finished buds will be very sweet and tropical with the taste staying on your tongue after smoking. The lasting effects of the high is mostly said to be happy and uplifting and will give you energy rather than couch locking you. Medicinally it is best suited for stress releif and mild depression but can have positive effects with pain and fatigue also.

All our cannabis seeds are 99.5% female and 99.5% viable! Our Grapefruit seeds are kept in a commercial fridge at optimal temperatures and all packs are dated so we know they are still fresh.

Our supplier for Grapefruit marijuana seeds is very reputable and the cannabis strains are comparable with the top major world seed banks but at much lower prices.

We guarantee same day dispatch if you order before 3pm Monday Friday. If you want guaranteed next day or Saturday delivery it will cost a little extra. We also offer Stealth Delivery at checkout and the more you spend the more free seeds we give away.

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST PRICE FOR THIS QUALITY GUARANTEED!

amsterdam marijuana seeds

The best cannabis seeds from Amsterdam

Because cannabis seeds were not allowed in most countries until recently, breeders have hardly been able to develop. The development of high quality cannabis seeds is therefore still lagging behind in many countries. This makes it difficult for many people to buy marijuana seeds of a solid quality.

However, this doesn’t apply to countries where cannabis has been tolerated or legal for a long time. Consider for example the Netherlands. The best cannabis seeds therefore still come from Amsterdam and probably the Netherlands will always remain at the forefront of cannabis. Many buyers who want to buy high quality cannabis seeds from Amsterdam are therefore dependent on the internet. But what are the best cannabis seeds from Amsterdam? Check our top 5 below.

Top 5 best cannabis seeds from Amsterdam

  1. Amnesia Haze
  2. Super Silver Haze
  3. White widow
  4. Haze 1
  5. Power plant

Amnesia Haze

Probably the best type of weed in Amsterdam, because say it yourself. The Amnesia Haze is popular with almost every weed lover and if you have never smoked it then this weed is definitely on your wishlist. The unique taste and effect provide a refined but powerful effect. Not without any reason a cup winner in 2004 and 2012. Moreover, the plant is fairly easy to grow. So give it a try yourself!

Super Silver haze

Super Silver Haze (Cannabis Cup winner in 1997, 1998 and 1999) has been one of the best coffee shop classics for decades. This weed can therefore be found in almost every coffee shop in Amsterdam and the rest of the Netherlands. The powerful weed (21% THC) provides a long-lasting body stone and an uplifting effect. Moreover, due to its Sativa properties, the plant is very suitable for outdoor cultivation. Do you want to grow this plant yourself? We have the best Super Silver Haze cannabis seeds from Amsterdam in our range.

White widow

The introduction of White Widow took place in Amsterdam in 1990. Originally grown by none other than the Dutch company “Green house seeds”, this type of weed has been one of the best types of Dutch weed for years. A treacherously strong weed for which you are actually warned during the breeding. The white resin crystals show that this is a sample. The effect is nice and creative and stimulates social activities. Moreover, the plant is very suitable for starting growers and is ready to harvest fairly quickly.

Haze 1

When we talk about classic strains and especially the classic strains from Amsterdam, there is one kind that should certainly not be missing. De Haze 1. A very powerful sativa with a high level of THC (21.5%) that provides a wonderfully mellow and creative effect. To grow this plant you need knowledge and patience. The flowering time can last 13 weeks, but if you can bear the patience you will be richly rewarded. A little less suitable for starting growers, but if you have experience then you will certainly enjoy this plant.

Power plant

The best often comes last. That also applies to this overview with the best cannabis seeds from Amsterdam. The Power Plant is certainly a strain that you must have grown at least once in your life. Indoor growers should take the strong odor into account because this plant can smell strongly. Compared to the Haze 1, this great Sativa has a fairly short flowering time. Besides the plant is easy to grow in almost any climate.

Tips for buying cannabis seeds from Amsterdam

Cannabis seeds are for sale in many places in Amsterdam, but if you haven’t planned a vacation to Amsterdam for now, you can easily buy your cannabis seeds online. Whether you buy your cannabis seeds from us or from another seed company, do a little research beforehand, look for reviews and read the terms and conditions of the relevant seed bank. Buying cannabis seeds can entail the necessary risks if you live in a country where cannabis seeds are not allowed so it is always a good thing if you can use a delivery guarantee for example. Moreover, never buy your weed seeds on the black market. If something unexpectedly goes wrong with your order, you don’t have any buyer protection.

Can you bring cannabis seeds from Amsterdam to the UK?

Many of our UK customers wonder whether you can bring cannabis seeds from Amsterdam to the UK. Although this information should not be seen as legal advice, we know that weed seeds are not prohibited in the UK as long as you don’t germinate them. However, it’s unknown to us whether you can bring cannabis seeds from the Netherlands to England.

Amsterdam cannabis seeds shops

The Royal Queen Seeds Store opened in the heart of Amsterdam a few years ago – a small but highly-specialised shop that has been full ever since it opened, not just because of its excellent location but also thanks to the varied and high-quality product assortment, not to mention its affordable prices. Having seen thousands of visitors and foreign tourists pass through its doors, the Royal Queen Seeds Store has become a point of reference for growers from all over Europe.

Royal Queen Seeds, the shop’s own brand of seeds, are the most important and convenient on the market. You will, of course, also find well-known varieties such as White Widow and Northern Lights, but also the Spanish success, Critical, or the more traditional Dutch Amnesia Haze.

All our seeds are grown, improved, stabilized and feminized by the expert Spanish growers who work exclusively for Royal Queen Seeds!

The Royal Queen Seeds Store assortment also includes seeds from the most renowned and appreciated Dutch brands, such as Sensi Seeds, Serious Seeds, High Quality Seeds, Black Label, Paradise Seeds and, of course, Dutch Passion. The shop has also decided to add a couple of excellent international colleagues to its selection, which means that Kannabia seeds (Spain) and the special Joint Doctor autoflowering Lowryders (also feminized!) from Italy are now available.

As an extra service for the shop’s many customers, the Royal Queen Seeds Store has now decided to start selling its entire assortment online, as well. The easy-to-use website presents all the products available in the shop for online sales.

where to buy seeds for weed

A guide to buying cannabis seeds

The first couple months of the year is a great time to start planning your cannabis garden to get a head start on the outdoor growing season, which roughly runs from March to November, depending on where you live.

Navigating the cannabis seed market can be challenging when states have different degrees of legality. This guide will answer your questions on buying seeds so you can be on your way to growing your own cannabis.

Is it legal to buy marijuana seeds?

Marijuana seeds are considered a cannabis product just like flower, edibles, and concentrates. Their legality depends on which state you live in. People living in states with adult-use legalization can buy, produce, and sell seeds within their own state, but seeds can’t cross state lines. People living in states with medical marijuana legalization can only buy seeds if they have a medical card.

Seed banks exist outside of the US and can sell them for “souvenir purposes,” but it is illegal to bring seeds into the US and Customs will seize any cannabis seeds they find in packages or on a person.

Where can I buy cannabis seeds?

Many world-renowned seed banks are overseas in the Netherlands, the UK, Spain, and other countries where cannabis laws are less restricted. Seed banks provide seeds from a variety of different breeders.

In states with adult-use legalization or a medical marijuana program, you can buy seeds within your own state, either at a dispensary or through a specific seed company’s website.

How to buy cannabis seeds online

Before you purchase seeds online, you’ll need to figure out what strain you want to grow and what breeder you want to buy from.

Because US federal law still prohibits cannabis, it can be hard to find information on seed banks and breeders. Breeders who have a long history and positive reputation are usually a good place to start. To get an idea of what well-established breeders look like, check out:

Europe

  • Sensi Seeds
  • DNA Genetics
  • Dinafem
  • Green House Seeds

US

  • Southern Humboldt Seed Collective
  • Exotic Genetix

You can also do some research and find an online grow journal that details the whole growing process of a specific strain from a particular breeder. Through these, you’ll be able to look over another grower’s specific notes and see pictures of the final results.

If you grow some seeds and like the results, try growing another strain from that same breeder and see how it goes.

How to buy cannabis seeds at a dispensary

Although this option is only available to people living in states with medical and adult-use legalization, buying marijuana seeds at the dispensary is far more straightforward. However, your options are more limited.

Dispensary staff should be able to give you information on the seeds they’re selling, but keep in mind that a lot of dispensaries focus on selling flower and end-products. It’s a good idea to call ahead and talk to staff to see if they are knowledgeable about seeds and can give you specific information on growing.

How to look for quality genetics when buying marijuana seeds

Breeders talk about “unstable genetics,” meaning that a seed’s origin is unknown. Make sure that when you buy a packet of seeds that it or the breeder who produced them can list where the seeds came from and how they were crossed and/or backcrossed to get the seed that you hold in your hand. If you can’t get a seed’s history, it could be anything and the result of poor breeding practices.

An inexperienced breeder might cross a male and a female one time and sell the resulting seeds as a new hybrid strain, but professional breeders usually put their strains through several rounds of backcrossing to stabilize the genetics and ensure consistent plants that reflect those genetics.

Which strain should I grow?

Even one weed plant can produce a lot of buds come harvest time, so make sure you grow a strain you like. Note strains you enjoy when you pick something up at the dispensary or smoke with friends, and look for seeds of it when you want to start growing.

Some strains are easier to grow than others because they are more resistant to mold and pests, so if you’re new to growing, you may want to try an easier strain to start.

Some strains also take longer to grow than others. Depending on whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors, you may want to grow a quicker marijuana strain if you live in a climate that get cold and wet early in the season. For example, indicas are known for having a shorter flowering time than sativas.

All of this information should be available to you when buying quality seeds.

What’s the difference between regular, feminized, and autoflower seeds?

Regular seeds

If you buy a packet of regular seeds, they’ll come with a mix of males and females. A lot of cultivators prefer to grow these because they haven’t been backcrossed—essentially inbred—as much as feminized or autoflower seeds. You’ll need to sex out the seeds once their reproductive organs show during the flowering phase and discard the males—because they don’t produce buds and will pollenate females, resulting in seeded flowers.

Feminized seeds

Seeds can come feminized, meaning you can just put them in soil and start growing for buds. These seeds are guaranteed to be bud-producing females and growing them cuts out the step of having to sex out plants and discard the males.

It also reduces the risk of having a stray male sneak into your crop—just one male can pollinate a huge crop, causing your females to focus their energies on producing seeds instead of buds.

Autoflower seeds

Autoflower plants change from the vegetative to flowering state with age, not the changing of their light cycle. They have a short grow-to-harvest time and can be ready to harvest in as little as 2 ½ to 3 months from when you put the seeds in the ground. The downside is that, typically, they are less potent, but autoflower seeds are great for people who want to grow cannabis but don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it.

How much do marijuana seeds cost?

Cannabis seeds usually come in a pack of 10 or 12 seeds and start at around $40 a pack and go up from there. Some high-end genetics can run between $200 to $500 a pack.

Feminized and autoflower seeds will cost more because more breeding work was put in to creating them and they take less time for the grower to get buds.

How many seeds should I buy? Are they all going to survive?

When you grow any amount of seeds, a percentage of them won’t germinate, even if you get them from a reputable breeder. Always count on a few not germinating or dying off, or roughly 1/4 of the total you put in the ground.

When growing regular seeds, some won’t germinate and some will have to be discarded because they’ll turn out to be males. With feminized seeds, some won’t germinate, but a higher percentage of them will turn into flowering plants because there won’t be any males.

If you want six total cannabis plants to harvest for buds and are growing from regular seeds, start with about 4 times as many, or 24 seeds. Some won’t germinate and some will turn out to be males, and then you’ll want to discard down to the six best phenotypes. If growing feminized seeds, you can probably start with about twice as many seeds in this case (about 12); a couple won’t germinate, and then discard down to the six best phenotypes.

Make sure to always stay within your state’s legal limit of growing plants.

How do I buy strain-specific cannabis seeds?

Strains like Blue Dream, Gelato, and Original Glue have gained in popularity in recent years. Check out these resources on how to buy these types of cannabis seeds:

What seeds to buy? Cannabis seed banks typically categorize the seeds by sex, genetics, breeder, strain name and plant traits.

Cannabis Seeds by Sex

  • Regular Seeds: Grow both male and female cannabis plants. The males are culled in sensimilla (seedless bud) production. Regular seeds are the best choice for breeders. They have sustained the cannabis genus through its natural evolution.
    Read—Top 15 Best Regular Seeds
  • Feminized Seeds: Grow only female plants. This is accomplished by breeding two female cannabis plants together. The resulting seeds can only inherit two X chromosomes—meaning all female plants. Feminized seeds are great for growers with strict plant limits and for cloning. Read—Top 15 Best Feminized Seeds

Cannabis Seeds by Genetics

  • Sativa Seeds: Grow into tall plants with slender, elongated branches, sharp leaves and large colas. Sativa originates from subtropical/tropical zones including Africa, Southeast Asia, South & Central America. The plants have a naturally long flowering cycle that’s often over 10 weeks. Resistant to molds and diseases, sativas are great outdoor climate strains. They can grow to over 15 feet tall! High THC and THCV content. People who enjoy a stimulating “head high” effect prefer sativa cannabis. Read—Top 25 Best Sativa Seeds
  • Indica Seeds: Grow short plants with fat leaves, thick stems and a stocky structure. Indica originates from temperate zones such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Morocco. Traditionally used to make hash, indica cannabis is the real deal dank—super sticky and dense. Indica grows like a bush and can produce large yields in a small area. The plants have a fast flowering cycle. They may require a low humidity climate to avoid mold problems. High THC and CBD content. People who want a relaxing “body high” stone prefer indica cannabis. Read—Top 25 Best Indica Seeds
  • Hybrid Seeds: Grow crossbreeds of indica and sativa, in countless combinations. Hybrid cannabis seeds are able to grow tall sativa trees that produce the dank, heavy buds of an indica. Hybrid cannabis strains are by far the most popular category of cannabis seeds sold on the market today. They come in all different plant sizes, flowering times, yields, aroma, flavors, cannabinoid contents and effects. Read—High Yield Seeds List
  • *Autoflowering Seeds: Grow plants that flower automatically (non-photoperiod). The seeds may be either feminized or regular. Autoflowering varieties are made with ruderalis genetics, resulting in seeds that will bloom under any amount of light—including 24 hours/day. Auto strains stay short and finish their life cycle fast, some at under 60 days from seed. They benefit from long light hours per day to produce a decent harvest weight. The plants can be spaced closely, as in SOG or SCROG cultivation methods. Autoflowering cannabis seeds are used often by indoor cash croppers, who cycle them indoors for perpetual harvests. Read—Top 15 Best Autoflowering Seeds

☺ Cannabis seeds are also categorized by their unique traits such as high THC strains, high CBD strains, high yield strains, landrace genetic strains, inbred line strains, award winning strains and more.
Read—Mold Resistant Seeds

What’s the best way to pay?

Payment methods include secure debit card and credit card processing, check or postal money order, cash in mail, bank deposit/wire transfer and the preferred option—Bitcoin.

Using Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency is the safest option available for buying cannabis seeds online. It’s also a great way to get bigger discounts and additional free seeds with your order.

Can I use prepaid credit cards or cash-fill cards?

If you are a United States customer, you need to be aware that most American prepaid cards cannot be used with international merchants. Many of the best seed banks are located in the U.K., Europe and Canada. Paying for your order by prepaid card might not work.

What seeds to buy? Cannabis seed banks typically categorize the seeds by sex, genetics, breeder, strain name and plant traits.

Cannabis Seeds by Sex

  • Regular Seeds: Grow both male and female cannabis plants. The males are culled in sensimilla (seedless bud) production. Regular seeds are the best choice for breeders. They have sustained the cannabis genus through its natural evolution.
    Read—Top 15 Best Regular Seeds
  • Feminized Seeds: Grow only female plants. This is accomplished by breeding two female cannabis plants together. The resulting seeds can only inherit two X chromosomes—meaning all female plants. Feminized seeds are great for growers with strict plant limits and for cloning. Read—Top 15 Best Feminized Seeds

Cannabis Seeds by Genetics

  • Sativa Seeds: Grow into tall plants with slender, elongated branches, sharp leaves and large colas. Sativa originates from subtropical/tropical zones including Africa, Southeast Asia, South & Central America. The plants have a naturally long flowering cycle that’s often over 10 weeks. Resistant to molds and diseases, sativas are great outdoor climate strains. They can grow to over 15 feet tall! High THC and THCV content. People who enjoy a stimulating “head high” effect prefer sativa cannabis. Read—Top 25 Best Sativa Seeds
  • Indica Seeds: Grow short plants with fat leaves, thick stems and a stocky structure. Indica originates from temperate zones such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Morocco. Traditionally used to make hash, indica cannabis is the real deal dank—super sticky and dense. Indica grows like a bush and can produce large yields in a small area. The plants have a fast flowering cycle. They may require a low humidity climate to avoid mold problems. High THC and CBD content. People who want a relaxing “body high” stone prefer indica cannabis. Read—Top 25 Best Indica Seeds
  • Hybrid Seeds: Grow crossbreeds of indica and sativa, in countless combinations. Hybrid cannabis seeds are able to grow tall sativa trees that produce the dank, heavy buds of an indica. Hybrid cannabis strains are by far the most popular category of cannabis seeds sold on the market today. They come in all different plant sizes, flowering times, yields, aroma, flavors, cannabinoid contents and effects. Read—High Yield Seeds List
  • *Autoflowering Seeds: Grow plants that flower automatically (non-photoperiod). The seeds may be either feminized or regular. Autoflowering varieties are made with ruderalis genetics, resulting in seeds that will bloom under any amount of light—including 24 hours/day. Auto strains stay short and finish their life cycle fast, some at under 60 days from seed. They benefit from long light hours per day to produce a decent harvest weight. The plants can be spaced closely, as in SOG or SCROG cultivation methods. Autoflowering cannabis seeds are used often by indoor cash croppers, who cycle them indoors for perpetual harvests. Read—Top 15 Best Autoflowering Seeds

☺ Cannabis seeds are also categorized by their unique traits such as high THC strains, high CBD strains, high yield strains, landrace genetic strains, inbred line strains, award winning strains and more.

What’s the best way to pay?

Payment methods include secure debit card and credit card processing, check or postal money order, cash in mail, bank deposit/wire transfer and the preferred option—Bitcoin.

Using Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency is the safest option available for buying cannabis seeds online. It’s also a great way to get bigger discounts and additional free seeds with your order.

Can I use prepaid credit cards or cash-fill cards?

If you are a United States customer, you need to be aware that most American prepaid cards cannot be used with international merchants. Many of the best seed banks are located in the U.K., Europe and Canada. Paying for your order by prepaid card might not work.

A mix of both US and international seed banks appear below. Bear in mind, however, that orders originating from any international sellers (Appearing in Section “International Seed Banks” could take longer to be delivered to you no matter what state you reside in.

We have verified that the following seed banks provide:

  • Discreet and reliable delivery
  • Top shelf seeds
  • Notorious strains like gorilla glue, and purple haze
  • And excellent customer service, essential for a responsible company in this business.

5 Best Seed Banks that Ship to the USA

Here are the top 5 seed banks that ship to America.

1. I Love Growing Marijuana (ILGM) – Top Seed Bank Overall

Pros:

  • A reputable company with a 9.4/10 Trustpilot rating
  • No Dud Seeds, Money Back Guarantee
  • Discreet stealth packaging
  • Free shipping to Europe and the United States
  • Major well-known name strains
  • Options for beginner, autoflower, feminized, and much more
  • 24/7 support and excellent growing guidebook

Cons:

  • Spams you a bit with offers if you give them your email
  • Delivery tracking is pricey at $25

Sketchy Companies do not last 25 years, people who really love growing marijuana do. Clever name aside, this site catches the eye for its packaging, free shipping, and high Trustpilot rating.

Founder Robert Bergman, has been growing weed for more than 25 years, and has learned plenty of tips and tricks during that time. He started I Love Growing Marijuana in 2012 and turned it into one of the world’s most trusted sites for buying cannabis seeds for both Europeans and Americans. The website is also offering free shipping to everywhere in the US states and Europe and your order will usually arrive in ten days or less.

The thing about this site is the amazing number of available categories and options for all types of growers and specialization. On their main menu tabs, you get the option of choosing beginner seeds, feminized seeds, auto flowers, mixed packs, medical marijuana seeds, grow kits, seed-growing nutrients, and even some special deals. Every one of their seed choices is the authentic strain stated and comes with a germination guarantee, so there’s no chance of getting stuck with seeds that are duds.

They also offer seeds for cool climates or warm climates, indoor or outdoor growing, high yielding, high CBD or high THC, and so much more. Since everybody’s situation is different, it’s good to have so many available options. And, some of the top strains include choices like Bergman’s Gold Leaf, Blueberry Autoflower, Girl Scout Cookies Extreme, Gorilla Glue, and White Widow.

On the checkout page, there are multiple payment options, from bank transfers or deposits, credit/debit cards, and even Bitcoin, which can help with being as discreet as possible. And, standard shipping is free, or you also have the option of paying $25 if you prefer a tracked shipping method.

2. Crop King Seeds – A Reliable Canadian Seed Bank that Ships to the US

Pros:

  • Free delivery on $300+ orders
  • 80 percent germination rate
  • “Five crown” ranking system
  • Germination guide for new growers
  • Simple e-commerce layout
  • Useful infographics regarding genetics and THC-CBD ratios.

Cons:

  • $10 regular delivery fee on orders under $300
  • Regular shipping is slow (7 to 14 business days)
  • Website seems aimed at beginners

This US seller’s site offers a nice simple layout with many large sections featuring choices like auto flower, feminized, and high-CBD, as well as regular weed seed types, which gives you a fair amount of choices. One thing that’s especially helpful is their “Germination” section. It provides step-by-step directions on how you can guarantee that 80 percent of the seeds from them will end up reaching germination. That seems a bit low when you compare it to some other seed banks, but perhaps Crop King is just being realistic.

One of the best things about this company is the “five-crown” rating system. It’s quite similar to a “five-star” rating system and is controlled by a variety of user reviews that are unbiased, making it an excellent way for trying new strains with recommendations from other Crop King customers.

The Crop King website offers a rather generic e-commerce layout but you have the ability of filtering through all of their seeds by genetics and type, as well as CBD and THC percentages. Shipping’s also free when you order $300 worth of seeds or more. Regular shipping runs $10 and arrival takes 7 to 14 business days. Express shipping runs $30, which is a bit expensive but let’s move on to the pros and cons of Crop King Seeds:

3. Marijuana Seeds NL (MSNL) – Best for Discreet Shipping

Pros:

  • Offers Stealth Shipping – a very discreet shipping method where the weed seeds are hidden within some other objects, like DVD cases, prior to shipping.
  • 15 percent off bitcoin orders
  • Long Standing since 1999
  • Fun quiz for helping you pick the best seeds
  • Award winners of High Times Cup and Cannabis Cup
  • Variety of shipping options (includes stealth shipping)
  • FREE seeds with all orders for trying new strains
  • Wide range of seeds

Cons:

  • International shipping may take weeks
  • No free delivery unless buying in bulk
  • US delivery costs more
  • Confusing charts for describing seed strains

This is a cannabis seed bank that is based in the Netherlands and has been in business since 1999. With more than 20 years of experience in the sale of high-quality seeds, they have numerous options for auto flowering, feminized, indoor and outdoor, regular, high-CBD seeds, and much more.

One fun thing about their website is the quiz that asks “What marijuana strain are you?”. It helps customers to discover the MSNL seeds based upon specific growing conditions, weed preference, and what you’re expecting from the finished buds. At the end, you’ll have four weed seed options chosen for fitting with your climate, growing skills, and personality. This feature is nice for newbie growers.

MSNL states that their seeds have a 90 percent germination rate, which is more refreshing and honest than promising a 100 percent germination rate like some other seed banks may do. And, all of the seeds are hand-checked by their expert staff with plenty of experience in marijuana seeds from Amsterdam, therefore you’re assured a top product. And, they stock some major named strains, including some High Times Cup and Cannabis Cup and award-winners, like Buddha, Grandaddy Purps, Northern Lights, and White Widow. You also get FREE seeds with each order, which is a great way for you to try some new seeds while also helping the new seed strains with acquiring the much-needed attention in an extremely busy market.

Standard delivery is currently around $6.25 but if you buy in bulk, you get free delivery. Their deliveries generally arrive in the US in approximately 6 to 12 days, but sometimes end up taking a few weeks. Multiple payment methods are available, including cash, credit/debit cards, checks, bank wires, or bitcoin. Buying with bitcoin gets you a 15 percent discount. Here are the basic pros and cons:

4. Seedsman – Best Breeders’ Seed Bank

Pros:

  • 15 percent bitcoin discount
  • A regular customers’ loyalty points system
  • A-Z breeders’ list
  • Free seeds included in every order
  • Plenty of seed types in-stock
  • Tons of accessories from hemp bags and informational books to storage jars
  • User reviews for helping you decide

Cons:

  • Cheesy-feeling ads on their website’s front page
  • Steep insurance and delivery charges
  • User reviews that feel a bit biased

This is one of the most widely trusted cannabis seed banks shipping to the US. It’s also seriously geared toward growers with considerable experience. In fact, the company hosts an annual “Photo Cup” competition aimed at encouraging growers to submit photos of their own weed crops, preferably complete with a creative, fun, or just plain impressive twist of some kind.

The best thing about this cannabis seed seller is its massive variety of licensed breeders. In fact, they even provide a very long alphabetical list of all the seeds they stock and their breeders. If you’re searching for a specific big-name or even a niche breeder, you’re likely to find them and their weed seeds stocked by Seedsman.

In addition, you can also find all of the usual selections of feminized/autoflowering/ seeds along with entire sections containing popular strain variations, including Northern Lights, Sour Diesel, Skunk, Cheese, and the ever-popular White Widow.

Seedsman proudly stocks plenty of award-winning seeds plus some very specific categories tailored to specific growing locations. For example, you can purchase fast-flowering strains, mold-resistant strains, and even seeds suitable for growing at high altitudes, like in Colorado.

Every product listing contains a review at the bottom of the page and, with each purchase, you’ll be receiving some free seeds along with loyalty points for buying. And, when you’re buying and paying with bitcoin, you’ll also be getting 15 percent off. If that isn’t enough, you’ll also receive 25 percent more off for your first time paying with bitcoin! There’s only one downside and that is rather pricey delivery add-on charges, like the delivery insurance fee ($9.04) and the delivery charge ($8.98). At this point, let me give you the basic pros and cons of Seedsman:

5. Quebec Cannabis Seeds (QCS) – Fastest Shipping

Pros:

  • Credit card charges are under a non-obvious company name
  • 20 percent Bitcoin payment discount
  • More than 15 years of seed bank experience,-Stealth shipping
  • A variety of autoflower, regular, CBD, feminized, and mixed seeds
  • US customers can pay in USD

Cons:

  • 3.8 percent credit card payment fee
  • Minimum $70 order amount
  • Only one $10 standard shipping option
  • Website is a bit less sophisticated than some others

QCS has a website that was specially designed for people with prior experience in cannabis seed growing, (at least that’s the impression you get). Their website has been up-and-running for 15 years or more now, however, the fact is that QCS has been supplying all of Canada (and even the rest of the world) with some pretty high-quality seeds for almost 20 years. There are a number of different types and strains available, including high-CBD, autoflowers, mixed packs, and feminized, as well as outdoor, regular, and even some limited edition seeds. You can also submit a request for in-depth info about any other strains that you’re interested in. You’ll receive it in a format much like eBay product descriptions complete with bullet points. This may not be the world’s most sophisticated online cannabis seed bank but it’ll do the job if you know what you’re actually looking for. And, for all deliveries, they use very discreet stealth shipping. The only problem is that but they only offer a vague delivery window for the ETA of the product shipment.

US customers are charged in USD, so you don’t have to deal with Canadian dollar conversion. You can also pay in a number of ways, however, it’s important to know that any credit card payment accrues a 3.8 percent fee. And, if you pay with Bitcoin, you’ll get a 20 percent discount on your entire order. So, let’s move on to the pros and cons to give you a quick picture of this seller:

Is buying marijuana seeds online and having them shipped to the US safe?

Although you might think that it’s risky to order cannabis seeds online and receive them in the mail, the truth is that there’s minimal risk involved even when placing an order with a seed bank overseas. Don’t worry about customs laws either. Some people think that, if their seeds are intercepted, they’ll end up on a list and somebody will come knocking on their door (kind of like in the movies).

The more likely scenario would be that your seeds wouldn’t even be found. If they were, customs would probably just throw them out and then proceed by sending you a very official-looking letter that simply says that they were confiscated. And, that would be that.

“Stealth Shipping”

However, if you’re having seeds shipped from a foreign country to the US and worry about the possibility of interception, many of the best seed banks online are offering what is called “stealth shipping”. This is basically just a very discreet shipping method where the weed seeds are hidden within some other objects, like DVD cases, prior to shipping. This can help keep your package from being flagged as suspicious.

While we’re on the subject of shipping, don’t request expedited delivery or any delivery requiring a signature. Why? Well, you don’t want to intentionally draw attention to the package or have to sign for a cannabis seeds delivery. That’s a bit of a no-brainer. Also, when ordering in large amounts, multiple smaller orders from a variety of vendors will spread your risk along the lines of that old saying “Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket”.

Seed Bank Payment Options

Another consideration is the payment option you choose and how it’ll be charged. If your goal is to stay way under the radar, you might find that bitcoin is the most encrypted currency form plus it’s virtually untraceable. Numerous top cannabis seed banks are actually offering a discount if you’re paying in bitcoin. Alternatively, you can pay via credit card since credit card purchases are insured and better protected in case something goes awry.

Final Thoughts

If you want the best seed bank possible I’d definitely recommend ILGM. However all sites on this list have been thoroughly vetted and will deliver a good seed shopping experience.

I’m hoping that this buying guide gives you a little guidance and helps you with finding the seed seller that’s just right for you and your needs. And, last but not least, happy growing!
