Can you buy cannabis seeds on Amazon

If you have thought about purchasing cannabis seeds online, you may have thought about using Amazon to do so. There are a few factors to take into consideration, this may include whether it’s legal or illegal to buy and sell cannabis seeds on Amazon, where else you can legally purchase seeds, and also how to ensure you buy the best quality cannabis seeds, most suited to your needs.

Are Cannabis seeds sold on Amazon?

Although it seems like Amazon is the go to marketplace for almost anything, they do not currently sell cannabis seeds or cannabis products. Amazon also does not sell CBD products, as the site prohibits the sale of any product that contains a controlled substance. On occasion, a person may list one of these products and even get a few sales, but once the Amazon staff find the listing it will be closed down and the seller’s account will be banned for life.

Is it legal for Amazon to sell Cannabis seeds?

Cannabis seeds are legal to buy and possess in many countries and states, however, Amazon must work within federal laws. The federal law states that it is illegal to sell and germinate cannabis seeds.

Amazon’s policy states that they do not sell any products containing a controlled substance. The federal law classes cannabis in any form as a controlled substance. Amazon will only start to sell cannabis seeds and related products if the federal laws change.

Yes, Amazon will sell weed. Stop worrying and start acting

Yesterday’s weird Amazon marijuana news sent the cannabis world into a flurry of conflicted feelings.

In case you missed it, the worldwide delivery giant announced its support for nationwide legalization via the MORE Act and said the company would stop drug-testing some employees for cannabis use.

Amazon’s support for cannabis legalization is a big deal. The company employs nearly 1.3 million people worldwide, and this announcement knocks the legs out of the prohibitionist fable that people who enjoy weed on their own time can’t be healthy, happy, and productive workers.

But it also raises the specter of Amazon, post-legalization, eating the cannabis industry’s lunch. The idea of Amazon Prime drones dropping weed on America’s front porches doesn’t just scare old-time prohibitionists. It sends shivers through cannabis retailers, too.

It shouldn’t. I’ll tell you why in a minute.

‘Earth’s Best Employer’ has been drug testing?

First, let’s unpack the announcement itself. In a blog post sent to Amazon’s hundreds of thousands of US-based employees, Dave Clark, CEO of the company’s Worldwide Consumer division, revealed that in its quest to become Earth’s Best Employer and Earth’s Safest Place to Work (his words and capitalization choices, not mine), wrote:

In the past, like many employers, we’ve disqualified people from working at Amazon if they tested positive for marijuana use. However, given where state laws are moving across the U.S., we’ve changed course. We will no longer include marijuana in our comprehensive drug screening program for any positions not regulated by the Department of Transportation, and will instead treat it the same as alcohol use. We will continue to do impairment checks on the job and will test for all drugs and alcohol after any incident.

Amazon has been drug testing employees for cannabis use? Hang on. This is a company so embedded in its hometown of Seattle that it insists on being sued, if you must litigate, on its home turf of King County, Washington. That’s a district in which cannabis has been legal for all adults for more than eight years. Clark apparently just got the memo last month.

Clark also revealed that, “because we know that this issue is bigger than Amazon,” the company’s public policy team would be supporting the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act (the MORE Act), the Congressional bill that would end federal prohibition.

The MORE Act, and Schumer’s forthcoming bill

The MORE Act passed the House last year but died in the Senate. It was recently re-introduced in the House, where it is expected to pass again. But many cannabis pros on Capitol Hill are kind of over the MORE Act. Their eyes are instead anxiously watching for New York Senator Chuck Schumer’s long-promised all-encompassing legalization bill to drop.

Schumer, as Senate majority leader, has the upper hand in all this, and his bill is expected to supersede the MORE Act. The MORE Act was originally co-sponsored by then-Sen. Kamala Harris, and some Republican senators balk at the idea of giving the Democratic Vice President “a win.” (Yes, politics can be even more petty and small than you imagine.) A Schumer bill, if he finds a Republican co-sponsor in the Senate, may have a better chance of passing.

If it passes, will Amazon start selling weed? Of course Amazon will start selling weed. Or at least it will try.

Will Amazon put your local dispensary out of business? Probably not.

Think booze, not books

When people think of Amazon crushing an industry, they commonly think of Uncle Jeff putting America’s bookstores out of business. But bookstores are the wrong analogy. Cheap pre-rolls and top-shelf eighths are not bestsellers or Itty Bitty Book Lights.

The more appropriate analogy is booze. The alcohol industry experienced these same fears four years ago. When Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017, trade publication Drync ran an article headlined, Did Amazon just kill liquor retail as we know it?

They wrote: “Overnight, Amazon gained more than 330 new liquor licenses across 41 US states. This will undoubtedly shift the way consumers acquire and engage with beverage alcohol.”

Did you know Amazon delivers alcohol?

It’s 2021. Amazon has not killed liquor retail as we know it. Consumers have not shifted their alcohol purchasing habits. Amazon’s entry into the alcohol game is still so creaky, in fact, that I’ve spent part of the past hour trying to figure out if I can get Amazon alcohol delivered to my home in Seattle. I still don’t know if it’s possible.

According to several past articles, the company’s Prime Now service delivers booze to customers in 12 select cities—including Seattle. So where are they hiding it?

Bottles of alcohol aren’t pool floaties or water balloons (two of Amazon’s top sellers this week). Selling booze requires compliance with 50 different sets of complex alcohol regulations across 50 states. Beyond the 50 sets of state regs are further sets of county and city regs. It ain’t easy. That’s why Amazon has tried it in only 12 cities. The liquor merchants in those cities aren’t closing down because of Jeff Bezos. Most liquor buyers in those cities don’t even know Amazon sells whiskey, and this one can’t figure out how to order Brown Sugar Bourbon in Seattle. (Forget it. I’m heading to Trader Joe’s.)

The devil is in the details—of the legalization bill

National legalization, via the MORE Act or Chuck Schumer’s Very Secret Forthcoming Bill, is unlikely to create an open-market free-for-all. Marijuana will remain tightly regulated, state by state, just like alcohol, unless the language in those bills changes—to something, say, much friendlier to an Amazon delivery model.

This is where things get tricky. It’s much easier to influence the language of a bill you’re supporting than one you oppose. Perhaps Amazon has learned from its alcohol experience. Perhaps its lobbyists are working to bend Schumer’s forthcoming bill into something that would allow the company to move with greater ease in the weed industry.

Perhaps it’s up to those of us who want a fair, equitable, and diverse cannabis industry to step up and make our voices heard on Capitol Hill and in our own state legislatures. That’s where the industry’s national and state frameworks will be constructed. Amazon’s lobbyists are already shaking hands and forming relationships. If you can be there—go. Talk to your local member of Congress. Book time with your state representative. Tell them about your cannabis job, your medicine, your patients, your place in the community.

If you can’t be there, support the organizations that amplify your values. Because Amazon is already walking the halls amplifying theirs.

Marijuana seeds for sale on Amazon, a risky purchase

Can there be people interested in buying marijuana seeds on Amazon? Well, the answer is yes, although it seems strange, some people end up buying everything in the largest store in the world, and then what happens happens.

What brands of marijuana seeds are available on Amazon?

You don’t have to search Amazonrenowned cannabis seed banks for world-, such as DNA Genetics, Sensi Seeds, Mr. Nice, or Sweet Seeds, because you won’t find them in this store. In reality there are only 3 or 4 brands that are not known, although the names of their varieties mostly coincide with the most prestigious genetics on the planet.

In the best of cases, these marijuana seeds sold by Amazon are copies of the original varieties, but in many other cases the genetics do not match the name. In some cases the problem is even greater, because according to buyer reviews the seeds do not germinate, they have slow and stunted growth, or the plants die shortly after they are born.

How to avoid problems at the time to buy marijuana seeds on Amazon?

If you have decided to order cannabis seeds on Amazon and you do not want it to happen to you like most buyers, I advise you to read the opinions that customers have left after trying them.

But the best thing is to buy in a specialized site such as the grow shop, either online or physical, not only because the offer of seeds is much wider and you will find brands of recognized prestige, also because if you have any questions or problems in cultivation will be able to advise you as professionals.

Conclusion

There are times that for convenience or to try to save some money we buy our products in any store. But in this case you do not gain comfort or save money, because the price of Amazon marijuana seeds is the same or more expensive than that of many good brands, and in the same way that you ask on that website you can do it in a good online grow shop. Do not play it, buy well-known brands in stores that can advise you well and you will get the best harvests.
