Ok, I got it. But what are the advantages of ordering from an American seed bank?
The problem has to do with the American federal government and the current legal status of cannabis. Marijuana and derivatives (including seeds) are considered a Schedule 1 drug with essentially no accepted legal use. This makes it hard if not impossible for a seed bank to run in the U.S. the way they do in the U.K., the Netherlands, Spain, or Canada (which have legal loopholes or full-on legalization).
Now that recreational use and home cultivation has been legalized for adults in Canada, seed banks are getting established there, too.

Tangerine Dream has been described as a “citrus fruit fantasy”
Yet isn’t cannabis cultivation legal in several U.S. states? Where are the American seed banks?
Where can you buy cannabis seeds in the United States?
First, I’m going to share a relatively current list of real American seed banks. That’s why you’re here. This is the list I use when I order seeds in America. Then I’ll explain what the deal is.
Royal Gorilla is an outrageously potent cannabis variety, making her an ideal strain of choice when crafting some intense hash. Royal Gorilla features a perfect balance of 50% sativa genetics and 50% indica genetics. She is the lovechild of parent strains Sour Dubb, Chem Sis, and Chocolate Diesel. This breeding project created a strain with THC levels rarely seen before, reaching immense levels of 27%. The flowers of Royal Gorilla are dripping with psychoactive resin, making them perfect for hand-rolling some high-grade and mind-blowing hash. The high is both relaxing and stimulating as the cannabinoids and terpenes within the strain work to relax the body while igniting the mind. To top it all off, Royal Gorilla offers earthy, pungent, and piney scents and tastes.
Hash offers a smooth, euphoric, and clean high. It’s an old-school extract and very easy to make at home. These 5 strains make prime candidates for high-quality home hash-making.
Hash is by far one of the most iconic cannabis products in existence, with its use and production spanning way back into human history. Hash is essentially an old-school cannabis concentrate that can be made in numerous ways. More viscous hash, or temple ball hash, can be made by simply rubbing cannabis flowers between the bare hands. Kief, which is a more powdery form, can be collected from dried flowers during the grinding process and pressed into large blocks. Regardless of how it is made, hash almost always offers a clear, clean, and euphoric high.
Here are 5 strains bursting with resin that you should consider when planning your next batch of high-quality hashish.
Royal Gorilla performs well in both indoor and outdoor environments. Indoors, this strain will provide yields of between 500–550g/m² and grow to heights of up to 160cm. Outdoor plants will grow to slightly taller heights of 170cm and produce harvests of up to 600g/plant. She features a flowering time of 8–9 weeks, with outdoor plants usually ready for harvest during the middle of October.
Grow: Hiydrow’s flowering time is 7 to 8 weeks. It can be grown outdoors, indoors, or in a greenhouse. The plant develops large green calyxes on large colas. The plant displays bright red hairs during the end of flowering. High-density buds with a high yield.

Overview: What do you get when you cross a Blue Dream, Girl Scout Cookies, and Candida? You get a Hiydrow plant. This sativa dominant strain produces a high yield of 300–500 g/m2.
Green Doctor has a high CBD content of 10.2–16.9% paired to a moderate THC content of 3.7–12%. It’s perfect for users who want both CBD and THC. Green Doctor yields 300–500 g/m2.
Hiydrow (HY-1) is a hybrid 2:1 CBD to THC strain. During tests, Hiydrow’s CBD levels ranged from 11.1–16.5%, while its THC content ranged from 6.3–8.4%. The higher CBD plants were also found to possess higher THC content.
