Where to buy weed seeds online in the US
To save weed growers the hassle of finding and navigating a trustworthy seed source, we played secret shopper at some of the weed internet’s most recommended cannabis seed banks, evaluating menus and pricing, verifying breeder relationships, stress-testing services, and placing orders.
Read on for our explainer on seed banks, and further below you’ll see our reviews of five trustworthy cannabis seed banks that we recommend for your next seed purchase. And proceed with confidence, knowing that Leafly has no monetized relationships with any of the reviewed retailers.
What is a seed bank?
The term “seed bank” refers to companies who preserve cannabis genetics in seed form and sell those seeds to homegrowers and commercial growers. Their seeds can be common strains as well as heritage, rare, and clone-only genetics.
In their infancy, decades ago, cannabis seed banks primarily operated in the Netherlands because of the country’s lax view of cannabis, and never in the US. Many produced the seeds they sold. Some still do.
Buyers paid cash, which was usually stuffed into birthday cards or folded inside backpage order forms and snail-mailed over the ocean. Things didn’t always pan out, but the risks were worth it to get weed strains made popular in Amsterdam’s bustling coffeeshop scene.
Today, that’s all changed. US seed sellers far outweigh old-timey European ones, are reliable, and stock an enormously influential pool of American breeders, largely eclipsing overseas efforts.
While the days of cash in envelopes are mostly behind us—supplanted by credit card and cryptocurrency transactions—buying seeds still isn’t straightforward.
Is it legal to buy weed seeds online?
Weed seeds can be considered a cannabis product just like flower, edibles, concentrates, and vape carts, and their legality depends on which state you live in. People living in some states with adult-use legalization can buy seeds within their own state, but seeds can’t cross state lines. People living in states with medical marijuana legalization may only be able to buy seeds if they have a medical card.
Some companies and growers argue that since seeds contain little, if any, THC that they can be considered “hemp” under the 2018 Farm Bill and thus exempt from federal drug laws. However, that theory has not been tested in court, and you might not be able to protect yourself with that argument. The Controlled Substances Act considers seeds as cannabis, and seeds are only considered “hemp” if they come from a hemp plant.
Cannabis seeds are often sold for “novelty” or “souvenir” purposes, but it is illegal for cannabis seeds to cross state lines or to bring them into the US from another country. US Customs or state officials will seize any cannabis seeds they find in packages or on a person.
Additionally, homegrow laws differ by locality. Check your state and local laws before purchasing or germinating seeds.
How do I know where to buy quality weed seeds?
Seed banks don’t build trust like e-commerce sites typically do. Websites often look outdated, even a little unprofessional. Reputable sites can lack standard e-commerce elements like product descriptions or photographs, or even integrated credit card processing.
On the other hand, some seed bank startups have investment capital and can present a familiar e-commerce consumer experience. Ferrying shoppers through sales funnels into modernized websites, these companies usually sell their own seed lines rather than genetics from known, established breeders.
While there’s nothing wrong with breeders who sell seeds this way, there’s no guarantee that the strains they sell bear any resemblance to their namesake genetics without independent community verification of their products, via growers or third-party seed banks. We think of this as similar to the CBD market, where convincing branding doesn’t necessarily describe an effective product.
So to know where to buy quality cannabis seeds, consumers must vet seed sellers the same way growers have since the dawn of digital communities: by trading information on cannabis cultivation forums, where growers both experienced and new can discuss what they’re currently running in their gardens, as well as where they sourced their seeds.
Read on for five of the most trustworthy sources to buy cannabis seeds in the US in 2022.

About Neptune Seed Bank
Self-described as the most comprehensive stockist of cannabis genetics in the United States, Neptune Seed Bank has what you want or something very similar.
It would take us days to gush over all the breeders on tap at Neptune. And while their prices aren’t always the most competitive, the insane volume of exotic strains makes them a unique resource that shouldn’t be forgotten. Especially for those times when retailers offering more aggressive discounts sell out of that cross you’re after.
Ultra-hyped Kush Mints crosses by Seed Junky Genetics go for between $250-550, sharing price points with far-reaching influencers like Jungle Boys and Gage Green Group, whose “Last Chance” seeds top Neptune’s menu at $800 per ten pack.
Also present are long-established figures Top Dawg Seeds, Cannarado Genetics, and Dungeons Vault Genetics (formerly of Granddaddy Purple Genetics), plus emerging players posed to carry forward the flame, including Wolfpack Selections, Lit Farms, and Wyeast Farms. Additional highlights encompass recent hitmakers like Thug Pug Genetics, known for Peanut Butter Breath, and Capulator, known for MAC1.
With so many options available to Neptune’s shoppers, it can be difficult to narrow the choices simply by browsing. It’s a good problem to have.
I ended up searching for Melonade crosses, a delectable combo of Lemon Tree and Watermelon Zkittlez that’s been stuck in my head since experiencing it in rosin form in 2019. I found a surprising array of options, including versions by Crane City Cannabis, Lit Farms, Midwest Best/Grandiflora, and some budget friendly options from Envy Genetics.
I went for Envy’s MelonBlow (Melonade x BlowPops BX1), which carried a sticker price of $100 and came with a free pack of GrapeBlow seeds as provided by the breeder. A 10% discount offset the shipping fee, and after processing fees, I spent $103.50 all-in.
It should be noted that Luscious Genetics, a competing seed seller reviewed below, had the very same pack of seeds and additional, site-specific freebies for $65. Discounts are common, so it’s a good idea to poke around for the best price before locking in a purchase.
Customer service experience
During checkout, I was prompted to upload a photo of my ID if I wanted to use a credit card. The next day, because my current address is different from the one on my ID, I was also asked to email a photo of my physical credit card.
While Neptune says this baby gate for fraudsters is intended to “protect our customers and the business,” the security measure creates an unintentional honeypot—a cache of sensitive data that is, simply by virtue of its existence, vulnerable to nefarious digital actors or even disgruntled employees.
The good news is, Neptune doesn’t check IDs for Bitcoin/crypto or MESH transactions, so if you’re willing to take a few extra minutes to transfer funds around and pay additional fees, you can forgo the ID.
From a customer service perspective, the exchange to confirm my identity was painless and only added a day to the shipping turnaround. And I was impressed with Neptune’s speedy customer service response times. Shoppers can expect an actual human with little, if any, delays, which can go a long way to building trust and converting one-timers to loyalists.

About Speakeasy Seedbank
Speakeasy seed bank feels like a refreshing reset from the trend-chaser set. They offer a strong selection of heritage breeders like Mean Gean From Mendocino’s Freeborn Selections, Professor P’s Relic Seeds, and SkunkVA’s Lucky Dog Seed Co.—prioritizing the preservation and improvement of modern weed’s building block strains.
Speakeasy feels like a counterpoint to the current high demand for new and exotic mashups of hyped flavors—and, unstabilized seed lines. While there’s nothing wrong with backing up a clone library or exploring the potential of a promising male, it’s not the same as a breeding program that targets specific desirable traits.
This isn’t to say that Speakeasy’s menu shuns contemporary trends or excludes the undisputable hybrid vigor of F1 genetics—more that it places faith in proven breeders to filter worthwhile flavors from one-hit wonders.
Surfing Speakeasy’s menu, there was a lot to consider and add to my want list. Enticed by so many promising strains—namely, Bodhi Seeds’ newer 88G13HP releases, Crickets & Cicada’s Black Domina crosses, and Relic’s G13 Haze selections—I let Speakeasy’s Closeout Deals narrow my search.
I was impressed to see markdowns on both sought-after breeders and desirable strains, never getting the sense that Speakeasy is merely off-loading slow-moving stock. Select examples by Relic Seeds were available at a deep discount, as were numerous other packs that most growers would be happy to add to their vault.
I pulled the trigger on Lucky Dog’s Sweet Chem: $160 retail, marked down to $90. On other sites, $160 was the standing price, so I have no regrets.
Between meaningful curation that exhibits a strong understanding of modern weed’s origins as well as some unique deals, Speakeasy won a place on this list.

About Oregon Elite Seeds
Oregon Elite Seeds offers a wide seed selection spanning heritage, new school, and hype breeders, plus frequent site-wide discounts and regular sales.
For example, OES had a 35%-off sale when I shopped, applying to breeders like Oni Seed Co., Bloom Seed Co., and Obsol33t Genetics, plus dozens more.
OES’ selection is large, and there isn’t much missing. Breeders that aren’t represented are usually too expensive for most people, or their seed lines have proven to be unremarkable. This is extremely useful curation, narrowing choices expertly and serving as a barometer for upcoming trends.
Shipping times were exceptionally quick in my experience—but I live less than a 2-hour drive from OES’s headquarters in Eugene, Oregon, and customer experiences will vary.
I’ve shopped OES at least a half dozen times in as many years and have always been pleased with the experience, and their frequent sales are some of the most attractive in the business.
This time around, I found myself drawn toward a fresh-faced breeder, Wolfpack Selections—enticed by a buy one/get one offer and a series of hyped flavors crossed with Cheetah Piss.
Unfortunately, when it came time to cash in the 35% discount, the shopping cart choked and wouldn’t apply the coupon to the Wolfpack gear. When I contacted customer service about the issue, they couldn’t be reached over email or phone.
Eventually, I discovered that the coupon code could be applied to Oni Seed Co.’s Hattrick—a strain I’ve eyed for some time. Later, OES updated the sale language to exclude new drops, but not before I’d played a semi-frustrating guessing game to find applicable merchandise.
That said, once I did place an order, it was in my hands within days.
Customer service experience
Email response times vary and customer support can, at times, feel understaffed. I sent OES an email asking for clarification about the aforementioned 35% discount and received a form response more than 24 hours later.
A message directed me to a terms page and recommended calling for a faster response. I called twice during stated business hours and got a machine both times.
Eventually, I bought a second-choice item that worked with the 35% discount code, but I was hesitant to forgo breeder-specific freebies until the sale’s terms were updated on their site. Things would’ve gone smoother had customer support made itself available by either email or phone, or if limitations on the sale were spelled out from the beginning.
Best-in-class sales, generous freebies, and unique make-an-offer pricing
- Established: 2018
- Location: Missouri
- Customer service options: email, phone
- Perks: Loyalty points, sitewide freebies, small promotional gifts, like koozies
- Seeds: Surfr Seeds’ Surround Sound (Jet Fuel Gelato x Redneck Wedding), 15 regular seeds

- Freebies: Surfr Seeds’ (Citrus Farmer x Cherry Pie), 15 regular seeds; Cars N Coal Seed Co.’s Dancer x SS Afghan 1, 4 regular seeds
- Bought on: Jan 31, 2022; Shipped: Feb 1; Received: Feb 5
- Payment options: WAAVE Credit Card Processing, Cash App, Venmo, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, cash/money order
About Luscious Genetics
Luscious Genetics is an online retailer that curates a solid and often-discounted collection of respected breeders.
While the selection can feel slightly limited in scope next to some of the bigger banks, breeders trend toward new school but proven members of the community, like Envy Genetics, Thug Pug Genetics, and the venerable yet under-the-radar Surfr Seeds.
Additionally, Luscious runs a proprietary breeding program under the name TrichomeBros. This ensures that fresh, exciting freebies are always included with every purchase, even when partnering breeders opt out of participating in site-wide incentive programs.
With easy site navigation, no-fee credit card services, best-in-class deals, and remarkably competitive freebies, Luscious was a pleasure to shop.
Despite a number of enticing menu items, Surfr Seeds won my Luscious bucks with their cross of Jet Fuel Gelato x Redneck Wedding, dubbed Surround Sound.
The reasons were:
- Surfr created my fav strain of the 2020/2021 season, Grandpa’s Gun Chest, sharing Surround Sound’s Redneck Wedding parentage
- Luscious’ automatic 15% markdown, slashing the per-pack price from $100 to $85
- The promise of a second, full mystery pack of Surfr freebies with purchase of the first, which turned out to be a Citrus Farmer x Cherry Pie cross
- An additional site-wide sampler pack of freebies by Cars N Coal Seed Co.
That comes to more than 30 seeds for the price of 15. Very nice!
Meanwhile, Luscious continues to make a customer-first impression with a feature I haven’t seen elsewhere: the ability to “Make An Offer” on all listed products, similar to eBay.
Considering how often seeds are discounted and the frequency at which retailers offer sales, a Make An Offer option would be a welcomed industry-wide trend. It would be a huge improvement compared to the norm, that is, waiting for a sale only to find that a select item is sold out.

About Seeds Here Now
Seeds Here Now isn’t always the cheapest option, but their selection vies for the most comprehensive, and they’ve proven themselves reliable for many years. While some seed banks gravitate toward hype stock and others toward heritage and heirloom, Seeds Here Now has a bit of both.
The common thread throughout SHN’s menu is connoisseur quality. With a strong eye for promising genetics, the seed bank is also an asset to the community—giving back through an emergency fund designed to help breeders and growers in need.
At the time of writing, they were selling and auctioning seeds from numerous luminary breeders to raise money for Virginia-based breeder Duke Diamond, purveyor of Dominion Seed Company, who was recently released from prison and is getting back on his feet.
We were impressed with both the quantity and quality of exclusive seeds unavailable elsewhere.
One such rarity from the Duke Diamond benefit collection was a release by Heroes of the Farm that combines two terpinolene-dominant, Haze-leaning strains: Jazz and Space Queen. The opportunity to grow some heritage, previously unreleased Pacific Northwest flavors while also supporting a breeder from my home state of Virginia was an easy choice to make.
SHN offers sitewide freebies under a tiered structure for purchases of $150 or more. My purchase was less than that so I didn’t get any bonus seeds, just some stickers.
Navigating the site was as easy as it gets, as is the payment process. Yet when it came time to checkout, a 10%-off discount code offered to customers who opt into SHN’s mailing list didn’t work. I suspect this glitch has to do with fine print regarding the purchase of fundraiser-specific stock, but I’m more than happy to pay full price considering the proceeds go to Duke Diamond’s fund. But it would’ve been nice to know ahead of checkout that the coupon code couldn’t be applied to the item in my cart.
That said, this small issue—especially compared to buggier sites—won’t deter me from shopping with SHN again if they have something I can’t find elsewhere for cheaper.

Growing Cannabis Seeds in Virginia
Although growing marijuana seeds is clearly legal, there are a handful of considerations that you need to take into account.
Therefore, allow this section to explain crucial aspects of cannabis cultivation, such as when to germinate weed seeds and what to watch out for while growing marijuana.
Once you’re done reading the content below, you’ll gain the upper hand in growing top-shelf cannabis.
When to Sprout Cannabis Seeds in Virginia
Virginia exhibits a humid subtropical climate that experiences marine influence from the coast.
Overall, Virginians battle frigid temperatures throughout winter and soggy humidity that can be obscenely hot in the summer. Overall, you need to plant your marijuana seeds at the right time to avoid any problems, such as stunted or dead seedlings.
If you plan to grow weed outdoors, the best time to germinate cannabis seeds is in May. Although southern regions may be warmer than northern sections, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and sprout cannabis seeds once the last chance of frost ends.
Germinating cannabis seeds any sooner may land you in the in-between period where Virginia still experiences cold nights and mornings. Remember, the growing season is long in Virginia, and your weed plants will have ample opportunity to grow to their potential.
If you grow cannabis indoors — any time is fine to germinate seeds.

Issues to Consider When Growing Marijuana Seeds in Virginia
Although no one wants to talk about it, let’s discuss what can go wrong when growing cannabis seeds and plants at home in Virginia.
Here’s a list of problems that can occur during the growing season in Virginia:
As you can see — each of the issues can wreck your crop in an instant. Therefore, you must read this section from start to finish to learn how to avoid each situation.
Although growing cannabis seeds and plants is officially legal in Virginia — you can still land in hot water if you don’t follow the rules.
Remember, you’re allowed to grow a maximum of four mature cannabis plants. Therefore, it’s illegal to sprout more than four cannabis seeds!
Furthermore, you’ll need to keep your cannabis plants or seedlings in a secure location that passersby can’t see. As long as you follow these directions, you won’t see the police walking up to your porch.
Remember, even if growing weed is legal, you should be considerate of your neighbors. If growing cannabis seeds indoors, always use a carbon filter and grow tent to mask the smell or blinding light from the grow lights.
If you grow weed outdoors, always erect high fencing and a wide variety of plants around your garden to keep things looking natural.
As with any state in the US — thieves are a problem for marijuana growers.
Virginia is no different, which is why you must implement a few different strategies to steer clear of thieves in the night.
If you grow cannabis indoors, always install security cameras and alarm systems. If your home is broken into, you can turn over the video records to the police. Additionally, alarm systems will dissuade would-be thieves once they break-in.
If you grow marijuana outdoors, you should always use high fencing and motion-detecting lights. If you can, a locked enclosure around your marijuana garden is optimal for an added layer of security.
Last but not least — don’t brag around town that you’re growing cannabis seeds or plants.
Even if growing weed is legal, you don’t want to paint a target on your house for thieves. Overall, it’s best to keep your cannabis hobby to yourself, even in a legal state like Virginia.
When it comes to bad weather, Virginia’s interior is protected from hurricanes that make landfall from the coast.
However, you can expect ample levels of humidity during the entirety of the growing season. If you grow cannabis outdoors, you’ll need to combat humidity and oppressive heat.
As the growing season wanes into autumn, you’ll need to contend with falling temperatures. Therefore, you should always harvest your outdoor cannabis crop by the end of August or the beginning of September.

Pests and Diseases
Thanks to the humidity — Virginia is a hotbed for pests and diseases.
Overall, don’t be surprised if your weed crop gets jumped by bud rot or fungus gnats. However, there are a few tried-and-true methods to avoid disaster.
First, you must buy disease and pest-resistant seed strains from an online seed bank. Remember, pest and disease-resistant seed strains can stand against most common issues, such as powdery mildew and spider mites.

The History of Cannabis in Virginia
Virginia is one of the founding states in the USA.
In other words, it has some of the deepest roots in the United States compared to other states out West. However, we’re going to talk about Virginia’s history with cannabis and how it has suddenly become a beacon of hope for cannabis enthusiasts in the South.
Cannabis Laws in Virginia
From prohibition to recreational cannabis, Virginia has come a long way.
Below, we’ll expand on landmark events that have made today’s recreational cannabis laws possible.
Virginia Outlaws Cannabis
Along with the rest of the United States, Virginia banned all forms of cannabis in the 1930s.
Although Virginia has been a conservative stronghold over the decades, cannabis has enjoyed relatively light laws.
Virginia banned all forms of cannabis in the 1930s.
Virginia Allows a Rudimentary Version of Medical Marijuana
In 1979, Virginia became one of the first states to let physicians recommend cannabis for patients with severe illnesses, such as glaucoma or cancer.
Although the 1979 ruling was not considered medical marijuana — it was the precursor to the current laws surrounding MMJ.
Virginia Legalizes Medical Marijuana
In 2018, Virginia officially legalized medical marijuana.
The move came long after Virginia created a framework for patients to obtain cannabis in 1979. However, lawmakers approved the creation and licensing structure for businesses to operate medical marijuana dispensaries.
Once created, medical marijuana patients could buy MMJ at local dispensaries.
In 2018, Virginia officially legalized medical marijuana.
How to Obtain a Medical Marijuana License in Virginia
If you want to apply for a medical marijuana card in Virginia, you must head to Virginia’s Department of Health Professions Board of Pharmacy.
Once accepted — you may buy medical marijuana at a participating dispensary!
Virginia Goes Light on Cannabis Offenders
In 1990, Virginian lawmakers decided to “tighten” cannabis laws.
However, a provision within the bill allowed marijuana to be distributed to patients with glaucoma or cancer.
Furthermore, the bill included legislation that made the punishment for growing cannabis seeds at home a minor crime. Instead of a felony, cannabis growers found with a limited number of marijuana plants were charged with simple possession.
Overall, the 1990s signaled the end of cannabis prohibition in Virginia.
The Legality of Cannabis Seeds and Seed Banks in Virginia
If you’re wondering about the legality of cannabis seeds and seed banks in Virginia, relax — they’re legal.
