Thinking about starting your own cannabusiness? You are not alone. From CBD to medical marijuana to edibles, legal cannabis has become one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States, with few signs of slowing down any time soon.
Here are a couple of other factors to keep in mind about the legality of cannabis seeds:
First and Foremost: Know Your State Laws
You shouldn’t have any trouble buying cannabis seeds in another state or country if it’s legal there. It’s bringing the seeds back to your home state that can get you into trouble.
The same is true for buying cannabis seeds in another country. It may sound like a great idea to buy cannabis seeds while visiting one of the world-renowned marijuana seed banks that exist in places such as the Netherlands or the United Kingdom. But when you re-enter the U.S. with your goods, Customs and Border Protection will seize any seeds they find, even if your plane landed in a state where they are legal. Again, it goes back to marijuana being illegal under federal law.
If you live in a state that permits the sale of marijuana seeds, your best bet is to shop locally for high-quality seeds. This means visiting a dispensary, local farmers market, or seed company in your state to make your purchase. There, you can get the in-person help you need to make your purchase legally.
For a second offense for possession of cannabis, expect to get a Penalty Notice of Disorder. This means you are subject to an £80 fine to be paid within 14 days. Failure to do so results in a mandated court appearance.
Since 2020, the legal route involved getting a license from the Home Office.
For third time offenders, you will be arrested and the court will impose their sentence and this is likely to end up on your criminal record.
Buying cannabis seeds need not be done in person, it can easily and discretely be done online here. There are quite a number of strains available from seed banks that ship to the UK. Be sure to choose a reputable web-based shop to get the best seeds.
It is currently legal for UK residents to purchase seeds from UK seed banks. It is also legal to possess cannabis seeds of all strains, yet it is still illegal to grow your own marijuana plants from the seeds purchased.

In short: cannabis seeds are illegal for non-medicinal users and it can be hard to order cannabis seeds online as many seed banks such as Nirvana stopped shipping to Australia. Especially as many shipments were confiscated. Nevertheless, Australian customers can still order cannabis seeds in online stores. Here at Weedseedsexpress but also at ILGM. Just like ILGM, Weedseedsexpress has developed great stealth shipping methods with which almost all shipments pass customs.
Is it legal to buy cannabis seeds online in the UK?
In France, weed seeds are legal as long as they are not used for the cultivation of a cannabis plant but residents in France can’t buy cannabis seeds in head shops. They have to buy the seeds online.
In 1962, a single Convention on Narcotic Drugs was signed by 180 Member countries in the context of a global legislation that considers cannabis an illicit substance. Not the seed itself.
The bad news is, there are only a few legal selling points and the choice is very limited. Many Canadian growers therefore buy their seeds from seed banks outside Canada.
