How to Buy Marijuana Seeds: A Free Guide for Dummies

Your foolproof and definitive guide to buying online and mail order marijuana seeds. So easy, even a monkey could do it.

Possibly even a stoned monkey. Okay, so maybe not that, but this is your guide to buying weed seeds right, getting your crop growing in the best way possible, as soon as possible. To purchase marijuana seeds, you’re gonna need to know all The Who’s, How’s, When’s, Where’s and Why’s before you get started. The Who is easily the most important. Snagging a couple seeds that your cousin found in the bottom of a bag of dirt bud probably isn't the best way to go if you’re planning on having a nice crop. So make sure that you get your seeds from a reputable source.

Seeds are obviously the most important part of your future marijuana plants, because it all starts with them. Creating and properly collecting seeds, preferably feminized and carefully selected, takes time, effort, and a decent amount of science- which is why it’s best left to the professionals. When purchasing weed seeds for the first time, it’s better to spend a little bit more money in the beginning, than waste a lot in the end because your plants won’t produce.

Where to Buy

The “where” question relies pretty heavily on where you happen to be at, yourself. In weed friendly states and countries, you can sometimes pick up seeds from your local cannabis purveyor, or seed bank. Talking to the pros that handle the seeds themselves is usually a must for any beginner. Get to know your supplier as well as any strains they have for sale. These guys are the brains behind their seed operations, so they should be able to easily answer any questions you may have.

In countries and states where marijuana seeds aren’t exactly legal, there are generally a few loopholes in laws that can help you out. Order marijuana seeds online to avoid the risk of possession charges. Generally, seeds aren’t illegal to possess, as long as they aren’t in soil. This is excessively true in states and countries where hemp and hemp by products have been decriminalized. Should you get caught with some mail-order seeds, generally the worst case scenario is they won’t make it to you, as they are subject to being confiscated.

Why to Buy

Buying marijuana seeds online, either domestically or abroad has a few different advantages. Besides avoiding many legal implications, online marijuana seed banks generally have a slew of reviews and user ratings. These types of forums are massively useful when buying anything online and marijuana seeds are no exception.

Another added bonus of purchasing seeds online is that you can get hard to find and unique strains. The UK, The Netherlands, and Spain are common purveyors of the more popular strains. Because of this popularity, it’s not difficult to find a seed bank that is reputable and has satisfied customers. Most online retailers also have FAQ forums or online customer assistance should you run into trouble. No matter where you get your seeds, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll have a 100% success rate at all times, but more often than not, you should be getting what you’re paying for.

If you don’t plan on going the mail-order route to purchase marijuana seeds, keep in mind that certain modes of travel (like airplanes) aren’t always the best idea when carrying a pocket full of seeds. Crossing state lines can also get you into some trouble if you’re not careful about where you buy and how you transport. Be sure to brush up on any marijuana travel related laws before you bring home any souvenirs.

What to Buy

Choosing which seed to buy can be a pretty exciting, and equally overwhelming, experience. Any decent seed bank will offer many, many, different strains of marijuana seeds on their site. Feminized and autoflowering are also some weed seed buzzwords you need to be aware of.


Unless you’re planning on doing some crossbreeding and have a pretty solid background in cannabis cultivation- feminized seeds are definitely the way to go. Choosing to buy feminized seeds can increase your expected yield by up to 50%. This is because, without feminization, seeds have roughly a 50/50 chance of producing a male plant. Male plants don't produce decent pot and should a male pollinate your lady plants, the pot your girls produce will be pretty crap too. Properly feminized seeds have close to a 99% chance of producing a female plant.


Autoflowering seeds are great for beginners. No strict and costly light cycles are necessary, and the plants will flower on their own. Non-autoflowering strains will require strict light cycles during different stages of plant development in order to produce good foliage and fat buds. Autoflowering seeds will flower based upon plant age. A small downfall is that yield is generally low and plants are fairly small.


These bad boys will be ENORMOUS. So plan on that. Sativas also take quite a bit more time to flower and vegetate. They require a very large amount of space and an equally large amount of water, food, light, and just about everything else. But, you definitely reap what you sow with Sativas, as their cones are generally larger and the high is much more cerebral.


Indica strains are generally a bit smaller than their Sativa sisters, but will still require quite a bit of growing room as well as intense light schedules. Many new growers will opt to start with an indica strain over a sativa purely based on the amount of space they have to grow.
