Yo, what’s good? If you’re here, it’s probably because you’re trying to figure out how to buy marijuana seeds online. Don’t sweat it, fam. Ya boy Dan is here and I’ve got you covered.
First off, let’s get one thing straight: A cannabis seed bank is an online store where you can buy marijuana seeds from the comfort of your own home. Pretty dope, right? Now that we know what a seed bank is, let’s talk legality: Yes, in the USA, buying cannabis seeds online is totally legal since the 2018 Farm Bill, as all cannabis seeds are considered hemp. So you can chillax and shop without worrying about any legal issues.
But buyer beware: Not all seed banks are created equal and there are plenty of sketchy sites out there. To avoid getting scammed or buying fake seeds, stick with reputable seed banks like ILGM (I Love Growing Marijuana). They’re the most popular seed bank in the USA and have been around since 2012 – plus they have fast shipping, guaranteed delivery, and guaranteed germination, so you know you won’t get ripped off.
Now for the fun part: picking out seeds! With so many types of cannabis seeds out there, it can be overwhelming to decide which kind is best for you. To make it easier, here are some of the most popular seed types:
Feminized Seeds: For growers who only want female plants. Feminized seeds have been bred to ensure that every seed germinates into a female plant with buds.
Autoflowering Seeds: These seeds require no change in light cycle to flower and start producing buds in as little as 8-10 weeks from germination. These are great for beginner growers who want quick harvests.
Regular Seeds: Regular seeds are produced when a male plant pollinates a female plant and give growers a 50/50 chance of growing male or female plants.
Sativa Seeds: Sativa strains tend to grow tall and thin with long flowering times and uplifting effects – perfect for those looking for an energetic buzz.
Indica Seeds: Indica strains stay shorter and bushier than sativa strains with shorter flowering times and more relaxing effects – great for winding down after a long day.
Hybrid Seeds: Hybrid strains are a combination of sativa and indica genetics crafted for specific effects and flavors. Nearly all the popular strains on the market today are hybrids. They can lean indica, sativa, or balance between the two.
High-THC Seeds: These seeds produce plants with high THC levels that can reach up to 25-30%. If you’re looking for the most potent smoke, then you’ll wanna pick up high-THC seeds.
High-CBD Seeds: High-CBD seeds produce plants with high CBD levels up to 15%. These are great for those looking for pain relief without the psychoactive effects of THC.
Once you know what kind of marijuana seeds you want, it’s time to figure out how to pay for them. Most seed banks accept bank transfers, cash, or Bitcoin as payment methods. ILGM makes it even easier to pay for your seeds with credit and debit cards – so pick whichever works best for you.
Many seed banks offer discounts or special offers that can help you save money on your purchase. Don’t forget to sign up for your favorite seed bank’s newsletter for all the deets on new drops and flash sales. However, most sites have their sales right on the homepage, so you can check the deals as you shop.
After you pay, the next question is usually “how long will my seeds take to arrive?” The answer depends on how far away you are from the seed bank but generally takes 2-6 days in the USA.
I recommended sticking with seed banks that actually ship from within the borders of the USA, such as ILGM, so you won’t have to worry about customs intercepting your package. Not to mention, the shipping time is much faster when you buy domestically.
Finally, once your seeds arrive it’s time to think about how to germinate them. As long as you keep the temperature and humidity consistent – between 71–77°F and around 70% humidity – your cannabis seeds should germinate within a few days after planting them in a damp growing medium like soil or coco coir.
And that’s about it! Buying marijuana seeds online doesn’t have to be intimidating if you follow these simple tips – so go ahead and show those seeds who’s boss!
