Other types of seeds, legal seeds, are obviously allowed anywhere in the United States or any of the other countries mentioned above. You can buy them, sell them and grow them.
If buying seeds in Europe, we generally recommend one of the log-established banks. The aforementioned Seedsman is good, but our favorite is Marijuana Seeds NL.
ILGM still ships there, however. They do a great job of concealing the seeds with their stealth shipments, so most end up getting through. And if they don’t, they will send you a new shipment.
If you are simply trying to send seeds to a friend, or have a friend send some to you, you’re going to have to do a bit of research.
Any good seed bank offers stealth shipping, in which they hide the seeds inside some other object. In this way, they can easily get past a customs inspection.
For example, the sale of pot seeds is prohibited in Germany, but due to the international treaty, having seeds delivered to Germany from another European nation is not illegal.
Buying or possessing weed seeds is illegal in New Zealand. The only way to buy them if you live in New Zealand is to order them from an online seed bank. Many don’t ship to NZ, but Marijuana Seeds NL ships all over the world, so they’re your best bet here.
If you live in the UK and are planning to buy marijuana seeds, we have some good news! In the United Kingdom it’s 100% legal to buy and sell cannabis seeds. Besides, the law doesn’t provide any restrictions on where to buy your seeds. You can therefore buy your seeds (online) in the United Kingdom or from an international source. However, keep in mind that the germination of cannabis seeds is still illegal in the UK.
To us it’s unknown whether cannabis seeds in Mexico are legal or illegal.
In Europe it’s legal to buy and sell small quantities of cannabis seeds (online). However, selling seeds in bulk to individuals isn’t allowed. Especially because selling bulk is considered an encouragement for large-scale breeding. At the same time it remains unclear where the line is drawn between small and large scale quantities. Many seed banks therefore sell seeds in small quantities.
Can cannabis seeds in South Africa be legally purchased?
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.
In addition, in spite of the 1962 treaty most countries have their own point of view regarding cannabis seeds. We therefore strongly advise everyone to check the legality of cannabis seeds in their own country before buying.
In New Zealand cannabis seeds are illegal. It’s therefore not possible to buy cannabis seeds in a store. Yet, there are plenty of options like buying online.
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.

My best suggestion is to do a little research on the strain and breeder and grow a strain that seems interesting or exciting to you. If you’re still not sure, a great option for first-time growers is Northern Light, since this strain is potent, stays short, is easy to grow, quick to harvest, and has a relatively low smell compared to most other strains.
