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.
Make sure to always stay within your state’s legal limit of growing plants.
Where can I buy cannabis seeds?
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:
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.
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.
Marijuana seeds are often the easiest for new growers to start with because, unlike marijuana clones, they don’t require access to someone who is already growing marijuana plants. When you see your first tiny little weed leaf you will know it was all worth it!
Ordering weed seeds online from a seed bank will allow you to purchase feminized seeds (all-female marijuana seeds) and will also let you pick the exact strain to match your size and time requirements.
First of all, I’m talking from not just my own experience (I’ve been ordering cannabis seeds online regularly since 2008) but also the experience of the thousands of growers from the USA who write in to GrowWeedEasy.com or talk about growing in the forum. For myself and for other growers, on the occasions where my seeds have been caught by customs in the mail, the U.S. customs agents simply toss the seeds and send you the rest of your package with an official-looking letter explaining that your seeds were confiscated.
Get the best results by starting with seeds from a trustworthy seed source!
It’s scary ordering cannabis seeds online for the first time, and it’s really important to make sure you get your seeds from a trusted source! Not only will that help ensure your safety and security, but it also keeps you from getting scammed or ripped off with poor quality seeds or even no seeds!

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.
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.
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.
5. Choose a discrete payment method
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.

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.
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.
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.
