Buying seeds directly from a brick-and-mortar shop gives you the benefit of being able to talk to an expert before making your purchase. Make sure the dispensary you’re buying from has employees who are experienced with the growing process.

How to buy weed seeds online
There is a seemingly endless variety of cannabis strains now in existence. Before buying cannabis seeds you need to know what kind of weed you want to grow. Start by figuring out if you want to grow an indica-dominant, sativa-dominant, or hybrid strain. Indica-dominant plants tend to be short and bushy with thick stems and broad, deep-green leaves. They also have short flowering cycles and grow well in cold climates with short growing seasons. Sativa plants have longer flowering cycles, fare better in warm climates with long seasons, and usually grow taller with light-green, narrow leaves.
Another question to ask yourself is whether you want to be an indoor grower or an outdoor grower.
Buying online may be the simplest way to purchase cannabis seeds. Online retailers often have a larger selection and may provide more detailed information than smaller brick-and-mortar stores.
If you browse through seeds being sold at a dispensary or an online store, you will immediately see feminized seeds, regular seeds, and autoflower seeds. A vital part of understanding how to buy cannabis seeds is understanding the differences between these categories that refer to the sex or maturation process of the seeds.
A solid option for buying cannabis seeds. Spotty customer service has sent some growers to other seed banks. The guidance Crop King offers may give beginning growers a head start.
After two decades of selling cannabis seeds, MSNL has experience in every aspect of selling seeds online. A solid reputation makes them our favorite seed bank.
Reputation for Reliability
Many cannabis seed banks will offer a money-back guarantee that a certain percentage of their seeds will germinate. If their product falls short of that germination rate, they may replace the seeds or offer a refund.
Best for Big Orders
Why is it better?
Though the site is registered in The Netherlands, the company is actually based in the U.K. Customers can expect a rewards program, multiple payment options (with discounts for Bitcoin and wire transfers), and free seeds.
The company has also started shipping to Australia again, after a brief hiatus.
The company has a reputation for selling the highest quality male and female seeds, and for making innovative discoveries in breeding seeds organically.
12. Sonoma Seeds – Most Promising New Seeds Bank
Quebec Cannabis Seeds was founded in 2013, but still claims to have 15 years of experience in marijuana seed retail.
Sometimes seeds are confiscated, but that’s why most companies offer a delivery guarantee, with a paid tracking charge. Larger packs may also be separated into multiple packages arriving, since a large pack of pot seeds would be difficult to hide in one small gift item.
Overall, what we liked about Beaver Seeds was the customer service telephone line, which is operated 24-7 and is even linked to a US location. When you’re nervously waiting for cannabis seeds to be shipped in the mail, having customer support to speak to is really helpful.
