Have you ever opened up a new bag of weed and found a little seed inside? Did you cradle the seed carefully between your thumb and forefinger and think ‘this is it, the start of my cannabis empire!” Did you toil for weeks, nurturing your plant from seedling to full-grown plant so you could harvest weed whose smoke was all the sweeter because of all the love and sweat put into it? Whether this has happened to you before or you wish it had, it’s time to buy your own cannabis seeds and start growing.
Seeds are one of the hardest cannabis products to buy because their quality is hard to verify. After all, to anyone without a good background in botany or horticulture, seeds all kind of look the same. And anyone who grew up listening to Jack and the Beanstalk knows better than to just go planting something you can’t identify. There are also several illegal or scammy online retailers purporting to sell seeds across state and even international lines— a huge no-no for anyone looking to stay on this side of a prison fence. These sites will often feature large “legal disclaimers” that have no bearing in court, or describe the cannabis seeds as “novelty items” with phrases such as “meant for collectors, not for growing.” That’s if they’re even sending you legit cannabis seeds at all— you could end up growing regular garden weeds instead.
Lucky you, we’ve collected a list of reputable, respectable establishments that can sell you bonafide cannabis seeds.
The 4 best places to buy cannabis seeds online:
Yep, we sell seeds, friends. Even premium cannabis seeds from renowned genetic cultivators Terphogz.

And as usual, we do not have a delivery fee, even if your order is just one packet of seeds. Relax with some lemonade or CANN and just wait for the stork to drop off your baby cannabis.
2. A dispensary
As much as we love delivery, a storefront dispensary is still one of the best spots to buy cannabis seeds. For one thing, you’ll be able to ask the budtender any questions you have about growing and take their recommendations. Call up the independent dispensaries around you and ask what seeds they have in stock and what they would recommend to a grower of your skill level.
