Take a quick look at any growers forum and you’re sure to see lots of horror stories about buying cannabis seeds online.
And I’ve got a few of my own.
I once purchased 25 seeds, and only one of them germinated. When I contacted the seed bank I bought them from, they ignored my emails and calls.
It was an expensive lesson I vowed to never make again.
I now only used a small number of seed abks that meet certain criteria, and I’ve never had a problem since.
