Check the legislation in your country

Although the law in the Netherlands allows small quantities of cannabis seeds to be sold to consumers, this doesn’t mean that cannabis seeds and the germination of the seeds is allowed everywhere. Therefore, depending on where you live, buying cannabis seeds is not completely risk-free. You should check the legislation in your country or state before buying cannabis seeds online. We don’t encourage or recommend anyone to break the law in his or her country. If you do live in a country where cannabis seeds are illegal you shouldn’t buy weed seeds.

Choose a reputable seed company from the Netherlands, Canada or the UK

Many cannabis seeds banks are located in Canada, UK and the Netherlands. Dutch seed banks are often located in or around Amsterdam which is not very strange. Amsterdam is the source where the highest quality seeds still come from and where most knowledge can be found. For good quality cannabis seeds, it’s therefore best to order from a reputable (Dutch) seed bank with a long service record.

Do not immediately spent hundreds of euros 

If you buy cannabis seeds at a particular seed bank more often then this rule doesn’t apply, but if you are planning to buy cannabis seeds for the first time and do you want to do this safely we recommend to start with a small order. With a small order the risks are low and you are able to test the seed bank and the quality of the seeds. 

Divide your order

When you are planning to order multiple seeds it’s advisable to divide your order. For example, by placing a small order at different times or by buying cannabis seeds from various suppliers. Does a package get lost? Then you will not immediately lose all your seeds.

Safe and discreet payment methods

Nowadays, online payments with credit cards has become very safe. Like Weedseedsexpress, most seeds offer banks the possibility to purchase seeds with a credit card via a external payment processor. This has various advantages. First of all: the seed bank only receives the payment without receiving your credit card details. In addition, the payment processor destroys the customer data after the payment.

For your discretion, reputable seed banks ensure not to use marijuana related description on the bank statement. However, are you still a bit reluctant to use your credit card? Then you can always opt for a prepaid credit card or choose a another discrete payment options. Here you can think of:

  • Bitcoins
  • Cash
  • Bank transfer

Name, initials or abbreviation

If you do not want your name to be associated with marijuana related products you can choose to order without track and trace and you won’t have to sign for the post when it arrives at your destination. In that case you can choose to use a different name, abbreviation or just your initials at the postal address.

Use another e-mail address

In addition to changing your name, you can also use a general e-mail address without containing your own name.

Have the order delivered to a PO Box address

There are several seed banks that can deliver cannabis seeds to a PO Box address.

Have the order delivered to a different address

You can also ask family or friends if the seeds may be sent to their address. 

Choose a shipping option without signature

Registered mail such as Track and Trace post usually requires a signature upon receipt. For your own discretion, you can order without track and trace but there is a disadvantage to keep in mind. Without Track and Trace you can’t see where your order is going.

Be patient

Many orders are shipped internationally which takes time. An order from Europe to the USA or Australia will take about 7 working days. In exceptional cases, it can take up to 25 days for an order to arrive. Therefore wait patiently and do not contact the suppliers until the order has arrived.
