There are some key exceptions to the legality of cannabis seeds in the United States. Specifically, you can legally buy or own seeds to use as bait for fish or birdseed. The caveat here is that the seeds that fit this description generally tend to be commercial hemp seeds with fairly low percentages of THC. In other words, you can’t use the seeds to grow plants that will give you the high associated with cannabis.
Here’s everything you need to know about buying cannabis seeds online in the US and the top quality seed banks to find them at.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Here are the top 5 seed banks that ship to America.
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.
Seed dormancy and environmental constraints on germination influence various characteristics of soil seed banks. For example, seed dormancy determines how long a seed can remain viable in the soil. Factors such as embryo immaturity, chemical inhibitors, and physical constraints influence seed dormancy. Light filtered through plant canopies, for example, can inhibit germination in some species, while a long winter chilling may break dormancy in other species. The result is a considerable variety in the patterns of germination of the seed banks by seasons, disturbances, or other environmental shifts.

The role of seed dormancy
soil seed bank, natural storage of seeds in the leaf litter, on the soil surface, or in the soil of many ecosystems, which serves as a repository for the production of subsequent generations of plants to enable their survival. The term soil seed bank can be used to describe the storage of seeds from a single species or from all the species in a particular area. Given the variety of stresses that ecosystems experience—such as cold, wildfire, drought, and disturbance—seed banks are often a crucial survival mechanism for many plants and maintain the long-term stability of ecosystems.
In addition to dormancy, considerable variation occurs in seed bank germination because of seasonal or other environmental shifts. Disturbances such as fire, flooding, windstorms, plowing, or forest clearing are frequently strong selective forces and may increase the overall germination response of seeds. Ecosystems characterized by wildfire often have extreme cases of persistent seed banks, as is common for many areas with Mediterranean climates, such as Australia, California, and South Africa. In those ecosystems the germination of many species requires signals provided by fire, such as a heat pulse into the soil or chemicals from smoke or charred wood. Germination may not occur until after a wildfire, which then results in mass germination from the seed bank the following spring. Similarly, the seed banks of agricultural weeds are often well adapted to the almost continuous human-made disturbances of their environment. Such weeds frequently have complex dormancy patterns that reflect the agricultural practices under which they evolved.
Variation in the characteristics of seed dormancy determine whether a species’s soil seed bank is transient (temporary) or persistent. Transient seed banks are composed of species that produce seeds with a brief or no period of dormancy. Such seeds generally germinate prior to the next round of seed production, and the seed bank is thus continually depleted and reestablished. Transient seed banks are typical for many plants, especially long-lived perennials such as trees and shrubs. Often, such species rely on other strategies or life-history stages for persistence. For example, species may depend on long-lived adults, “banks” of seedlings in a forest understory, or extensive seed dispersal. In contrast, species with persistent seed banks have seeds that can remain dormant for more than a year, meaning that there is always some viable seed in the soil as a reserve. Persistent seed banks are common in annual plants and some woody plants, in which the failure of seed to establish the next generation would mean the collapse of the population. Scientists sometimes further classify persistent seed banks based on the extent or pattern of dormancy.
