The brutal truth about on-line cannabis seed banks
Online cannabis seed banks have opened up the marijuana growing capacities around the world. Now you can order the most potent and exotic strains ever made and have them arrive at your door in days. No more scrounging around for some crappy seeds from Mexico, or where ever, and spending all that effort to harvest some mediocre pot. For the aspiring marijuana grower things have never been better or easier.
But it’s not all roses.
Along with a small number of high quality cannabis seed-banks situated in Holland and England, there are dozens of online vendors that are nothing short of rip-off shacks.
The worst don’t have any seeds to sell but simply take your money and you never hear back from them. They profit from the fact that people who order marijuana seeds online and get shafted aren’t likely to make that fact public. There’s still a lot of legitimate fear regarding going public about purchasing pot seeds considering that ridiculous penalties are still imposed for the cultivation and possession of marijuana in many countries. So these scam cannabis seed banks never get reported and continue to take money from honest hard working aspiring marijuana growers.
Another kind of scam weed seed bank is the ones where they have listings of awesome strains but have a reputation of sending the wrong seeds, or poor old seeds that have a poor rate of germination.
For example, a friend of mine bought 10 super strain cannabis seeds last year for over $100 and not one single seed would germinate. The seeds were old and dead. what a rip-off!
Unfortunately this is not an isolated story :(.
So how to avoid getting ripped off? Stick with long-established seed banks and wholesalers who have a sound reputation.
All seed banks listed on this site are good ones who sell fresh seeds of killer strains at competitive prices and fast discrete delivery.
I can personally vouch for these banks because I use them and always get the goods in time.
The good seed banks are great. As for all the rest – buyer beware!
If you’re considering buying some seeds from a bank that’s not linked to from this site – how do you know it’s a good one? Here are some things to look out for:
Almost all high quality seed banks are situated in The Netherlands.That’s because marijuana seed banks can operate there and develop some kick-butt strains without worrying about getting in legal problems. Holland has one of the most relaxed cannabis tolerating legal frame works in the developed world.
There are a number of sound seed banks in Holland that cater to specific tastes developing speciality strains. Consider Paradise Seeds or Serious Seeds for example. These are small seed banks that produce a small variety of super strains with a big reputation and following such as Chronic and White Russian from Serious Seeds and Ice Cream and Opium for Paradise Seeds.
Other reputable cannabis seed banks include Nirvana Seeds (known for its famous Bubblelicious), which has possibly the cheapest prices. Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds do their own take on traditional strains, creating new super-strong hybrids.
For the biggest selection of cannabis seeds on-line just head on over to Seedsman – a bulk wholesaler in London. These guys have a huge stock of seeds from dozens of speciality seed banks and always keep their seeds fresh. I’ve used these guys on a number of occasions – they ship fast and cheap – and the seeds are good.
So here’s a list of the best online seed banks with hyper-links:
- Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds – diverse selection of high quality seeds, including their XTRM “extreme” line of exceptionally potent versions of favourite strains, sends seeds worldwide
- Seedsman – London-based, huge selection, now ships worldwide
- Nirvana Seeds – high quality seeds, great medical marijuana seeds selection, sends seeds worldwide
- Serious Seeds – small selection of extremely high grade potent cannabis strain seeds, does not send to USA
- Paradise Seeds – supplier of awesome exotic strains, does not send to USA
- Sensi Seeds – the longest established cannabis seed bank around, pricey but awesome strains with big reputation, does not send to USA.
So there you have it – 6 of the best on-line seed banks that I have used and am happy to recommend.
If you’re reading this from the States and are interested in getting your hands on some high-grade Amsterdam seeds, you’re best bet is with Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds or Nirvana Seeds. Most other seed banks have stopped sending them state-side for fear of prosecution. Nirvana Seeds and AMS continue to burn the torch for freedom. Good on them!
