Thinking About Buying Cannabis Seeds Online?

Buying cannabis seeds legally illinoisHow can you buy cannabis seeds legally?

States update their marijuana or cannabis laws fairly often – for example, Illinois legalized home grow in January of 2020 for its medical patients.

(3) Adult registered qualifying patients may purchase cannabis seeds from a dispensary for the purpose of home cultivation. Seeds may not be given or sold to any other person.

You want to buy cannabis seeds online, but do it legally – well, there’s no way that you – or any one – should be getting legal advice from a youtube channel – but people keep calling me asking how to do this legally in Illinois, and everyone in the next state will want this info as well, so it seemed like a perfect episode of…

How People Get Cannabis Seeds in Your State

Let’s talk about how you can get your garden growing – so likes and subscribes everybody. Remember to check your state law regarding home grow. Here in IL, only medical patients can grow. They can buy seeds, but where do you get them – and hang out until the end and you’ll learn how cannabis plants magically get into new legalized states despite being criminal the day before, or criminal until you get the license and not having the state give you the plants. 

We’re gonna talk about 5 things to consider when getting your cannabis seeds for your medical home grow – or adult use home grow if your state allows that – and we are all praying IL and WA legalize soon. But watch out for home grow for adult use – often the DEA comes in – like in CO after home grow for adults became law and CO got brand recognition in surrounding states. 

Which brings us to the first thing to consider when buying seeds – 

law enforcement Issues for Buying Cannabis Seeds Online

Do not go over your limits. You need safe access to your medicine and not any trouble – like Glenn Keeling, had happen to him for just having, let along growing, medicine. States set specific limits – stick to them.  For example, IL lets patients grow 5 plants per household not patient – check your local laws then see how many plants you can have and stick to it no matter how many seeds you buy.

How & Where do you buy Cannabis – or marijuana seeds?

In the new Illinois adult use law – they says you can buy seeds from dispensaries, but you can’t even buy flower from some dispensaries. But if this is 2022 when you’re watching this, we may be fine, but now your state is out of cannabis – and has allowed home grow if you go buy seeds a dispensary, but there are not any. 

Well, how are seeds defined – and why can you just seemingly buy them from anywhere on the internet?  The Controlled Substances Act specifically defines marijuana as all parts of the cannabis plant whether growing, or not, and the seeds thereof. The 2018 farm bill legalized hemp to make it only for parts of the cannabis plant and its seeds for cultivars – or strains – that have greater than 0.3% THC if grown under proper conditions. 

The State laws often define who can sell what, including seeds and clones. So some states must allow their farmers to sell their seeds online, or maybe Canada does – but in Europe, Amsterdam or Barcelona for example – perhaps you buy these seeds as souvenirs.  

It really doesn’t matter – but would just show the feds not enforcing their marijuan laws – like they are not doing in California, the whole west coast – the nation’s capital – great state of Illinois and hopefully your state just came online. 

Here’s the places to buy them seeds online – 

Again, you’re not getting legal advice from youtube – but here are places that are selling seeds: In Europe

European Cannabis Seed Providers

  • Sensi Seeds
  • DNA Genetics
  • Dinafem
  • Green House Seeds


US Cannabis Seed Suppliers

  1. Southern Humboldt Seed Collective
  2. Exotic Genetix
  3. Mephisto genetics.


How many and what type of cannabis seeds should you buy? 

Dude, I’m not giving you legal advice and I’m certainly not giving you grow advice. You may want to be rustic and go with regular seeds, that you sex yourself and train them all the way through their photo period and flower to harvest, or you may want to skip some of that and go with feminized seed – or perhaps your a beginner on your first autoflower. 

 Check out those seed banks again – links in the comments for you to find out everything the geneticists themselves will tell you about their seeds – then check out their instagram accounts for sick flower that in the parlance of 2020 is called fire. 

Now you may find yourself asking – 

Will I get caught for cannabis or marijuana seeds?

Think about one thing – and if you like it – smash them likes and subscribes. What is the way the punishment goes up for marijuana or cannabis possession?  The weight.  How much does a cannabis seed weigh?

Very, very little. How little?

cannabis seeds weight only 1.5-2.5 grams per 100 seeds. 

Cannabis seeds are very light

Soo.. think about it – IL decriminalized possession of 10 grams or less in 2016 – so you would need like hundreds of seeds for that. 

Just low risk it seems.
