Modes of Payment for Seed Bank Purchases

Credit/Debit Cards

Many people are able to purchase cannabis seeds online using debit or credit cards without any problem. However, placing an order via cards sometimes won’t go through if the overseas transaction has been flagged as suspicious (in case you don’t usually order items from abroad using that card).


It’s very rare for a seed company to offer a Paypal payment option. This is because Paypal strictly prohibits cannabis seed sales – a company who sells seeds will instantly get shut down once Paypal discovers what they are selling.


Most customers don’t realize that using cash to pay for cannabis seeds is actually quite common. A quick search online will show dozens of forum readers and members who have successfully bought seeds online using cash – and they do not seem to have any problems at all.

Safety Precautions When Buying Seeds Online

Your heart is probably racing at just the idea of ordering cannabis seeds online – and that’s normal! If you have never tried buying an item like that before, there is no need to worry.

Although American citizens won’t be in trouble for ordering cannabis seeds from another country through the internet, you can find yourself in deep legal trouble if you sell or send seeds from one place to another in the United States.

This is the reason why it’s hard to find a long-established seed bank in the country.

Current customs laws in America does indicate that if your seed package from abroad does get caught in the mail, you will not be put on a list. Instead, the U.S. customs agents will simply toss the seeds and send you what’s left of the package. They also send an official letter letting you know that your seeds were confiscated.

In case that happens to you, the next step is simple: just contact the seed bank and they will gladly give you a replacement package.

Marijuana Seeds for U.S. Residents

If you would like to have your cannabis seeds, here are a few options:

1. Find a fellow grower who is willing to sell, trade or give you seeds.

2. Make use of a bag seed.

3. Purchase seeds of specific marijuana strains via the internet

Buying marijuana seeds at a cannabis seed bank, other vendors or breeders is surprisingly very easy. You just need to do proper research first to be sure that you are getting high-quality seeds.

New growers are advised to get marijuana seeds instead of clones because they do not require access to a person who is already growing the plant. You’ll know it’s all worth it once you see your first tiny weed leaf sprout!

A reminder for U.S. residents, though, international orders will not be processed if you use a pre-paid debit or credit card. They no longer work with any kind of international order because of changes in laws that were made in 2012.

There are, however, many safer options if you want to get marijuana seeds in the U.S.
