Can cannabis seeds safely be shipped to illegal states?
I’ve been reading conflicting info about the legality of shipping seeds to illegal states, but most of them say it’s a legal loophole because the seeds are listed as a “souvenir” item. Can anybody confirm this?
You’re overthinking it imo, most states don’t consider seeds illegal until you germinate them. Just use a different address and you’re good.
Yep, 100% safe and legal. Just for collection purposes though, at least in Italy(where I come from) or in Germany(where I live).
Wtf you are talking. When German customs gets them they may let them pass, but they may invade your grow few months later. If you say that is made up -> you are naive!
You can luckily order within Europe. Chances are good that this pulls no bad consequences after. But i wouldn‘t order from the states in Germany, because 100% it goes through customs. And the customs give a shit about „collectible seeds“ ♂️.
You’d be find ordering seeds..It’s consider a souvenir, there’s nothing illegal about it. Even if worst case scenario you’d be fine, take the time to look up your state laws as well. You have access to all this, nothing weird or suspicious about it.
Dude said states not country’s no customs for delivering in states
—-TLDR—— In the US.
Shipping domestically you should know that your packages are safer with the USPS. The postal service cannot legally open domestic packages without reasonable and demonstrable suspicion of a crime. Independent shippers, DHL, FedEx, etc are not bound by these laws. They can and have opened packages to inspect them. —-END TLDR—-
I seriously doubt that “souvenir” is a legal loophole allowing seeds to be legally shipped domestically. In the USA at least.
Hemp is legal but surrounded by a welter of licensing and fees varying state to state: https://www.hempgrower.com/article/state-by-state-guide-hemp-cultivation-processing-license-fees/ . Unless you’ve done all the licensing and payed all the fees you can get hemp seeds, you can grow hemp seeds, but it’s not a “legal” grow. People love to make this argument but it’s not true.
As a practical matter I’ve never had a seed purchase from Europe stopped at customs in 10 years.
Packages from Amazon originating in Europe and China have been stopped, opened and inspected. This also happened with a single domestic package through an independent shipper, not USPS. All were electronic components most shipped in small heavy white plastic or fiber bags. They were probably flagged as potential powders or pills due to the packaging and contents that a quick scan would only show little blobby things; think of looking like fentanyl, oxycodone, or oxycontin in X-ray silhouette.
None of this is to make you paranoid. I’ve only heard of a few people getting a generic letter saying what a bad person the recipient was. Those were in international shipping, never domestically and that was years ago before there was a domestic market. Within the USA small purchases of seeds should be safe. Honesty, unless your vendor has advertising on the outside of the box featuring their seeds and colorful pictures of cannabis plants there is almost no reason to stop it with any shipper and the USPS would need a good legal reason to inspect it. They all have enough problems with genuinely deadly and destructive drugs.
What is the safest way to buy seeds online?
Obviously I don’t want to be giving out my credit card information and address to get in trouble but I have never done this before, any tips?
I just took the plunge and assumed it was safe if everyone else is doing it. It worked out well so I guess my advice is don’t worry? Probably bad advice.
prepaid gift cards at walmart, there is like a 5 dollar charge for it. They only have like 25/50/100 cards, none of the set your amount type, at least not at my walmart. i’d use attitude seedbank if i were you, they have guaranteed shipping options.
Where can I score good genetic cannabis seeds?
While there are sort of good recommendations here, people seem to be failing to mention that youre going to want to pheno hunt. One pack of one strain, regardless of the breeder, will likely not yield award winning results.
Almost every breeder in the US worth their can be ordered from or has a seedbank they have gear with. Some great breeders are
Bloom Seed Co. Oni Seeds Exotic Genetix In House Genetics Thug Pug Genetics Humboldt Seed Co. Rockymountainhigh719 Masonic Seeds Umami Seeds Bodhi Seeds
Be willing to pay. Commercial breeders that pheno hunt for you can charge upwards of 10k for the first cut of a single pheno and some of the cultivars are very rare and sell out within minutes of the drop. For instance Bloom Seed Co dropped Strawberry Cooler (Kush Mints Rabid Hippie cut x Strawberry Guava) and Guava’z Cooler (Kush Mints Rabid Hippie cut x Guava’z) and both sold out in seconds.
