Reputable Seed Banks
I've been blazin' forever, but I'm just getting in the growing side of things. I'm still trying to grasp this whole strains and seeds business.
I think I get the whole seeds business though.....A supplier (example: The Attitude) sells seeds that are manufactured by seed banks (example: G13)..... is this correct????
If so, what are the reputable seeds banks that are known threw this community that I should purchase from?
Reserva privada,DNA genetics,and tga are all good from the attitude.
The 'tude, yet I've had no issues so far.
And yes you are correct.
barneysfarm everyone has their preferences like wine. around here asking who the best breeder is like asking which white bread is better? all the aspects go into the overall product. me i will spend some money but i wont do overkill barney, buhda, DNA, alphakronik and greenhouseseeds are pretty good for this
No, that is incorrect. A seedbank is a reseller of breeder products. Mr. Nice seeds, Paradise seeds, Sensi seeds, Serious seeds etc. are breeders of strains and 'manufacturers' of seeds.

Seedbanks are businesses like Attitude and Hemp Depot etc.

The better more reputable breeders are:
Mr. Nice seeds
Black Label seeds
De Sjamaan seeds
Spice of Life seeds
White Label seeds
When it comes to actual seedbanks ....

Greetings growers this is for medical marijuana users and those who can use the information legally. Seedbank ratings are farther down and the links to growing information are near the end. The seedbank update is now over 14 years old with continuous reports on the state of the seed industry.
Thtis is a good time to pick up seeds to start indoors for upcoming spring in the northern hemisphere .
The post office in the USA often gets funny about delivering letters. People many times use a fake name to get orders sent to them. The trouble is that the letter carrier may not deliver it if they do not recognize the name. Before you send your order, send a letter to yourself using the name and see if it arrives. Then make your order. Ask the company first if they send to your country. If no reply, do not order.
If you have bought from a seedbank send in your report so that other people will know how good or bad it was. No seeds are sold from this site. This center is only for information. You may also send in a grow report on a variety you grew out.

This group I've heard good things about. Those with four stars or more are the most reliable. They will send to most countries. I've tried to list those that ship worldwide. Those with a relatively low rating may just be new to the ratings. It takes a while to earn a good rating. A 1/2 means they are half way to the next star.
I keep getting bad reports on bc bud depot. Non delivery or poor quality seeds if they do arrive.
Attitude 4 star 1/2 (F****1/2)
Bluenose 3 star (***) (2)
Dr. Greenthumbs 4 star (F****) (1,2,3)
Hemp Depot 4 star and 1/2 (F****1/2) (1,2,4,)
Hemcy 4 and 1/2 star (F****1/2) (1,4)
Highland 2 star and 1/2 (**1/2)
Joey Weed 4 star and a half (F****1/2) (1,2)
Klozit King 3 star and 1/2 (***1/2) (1,2)
Natural Mystic 3 star and 1/2 (***1/2)
Peakseeds BC 4 star and 1/2 (****1/2)F
Seedboutique 3 stars and 1/2 (F***1/2) (1)
Seedbank.co.uk 2 star and 1/2 (**1/2)
Tambu 3 star (S***) (1,3)
The limited area seedbanks and a list of bad ones to avoid will be found farther down .
Check out the new and unrated seedbanks at the New page. These are seedbanks I've heard good things about but haven't had enough reports on to make a rating.
I don't have time to answer individual questions so I usually just tell people to do some reading. I have information on my site and links to other sites with even more info.
Would you like to see your grow report in the SU? Please include the name of the strain, where obtained, how it grew, potency and yield. Tell us the names of other strains you grew or smoked for comparison. Cultivation tips and news items are also welcome. You can get credit under any name you prefer or stay anonymous. If you like I will rewrite it for you.
To reach me write to [email protected] (remove ZZZ)
This is a report on which seedbanks are reliable and give good service. I also list some bad ones to stay away from (crooks). Reports from people who have ordered from cannabis seedbanks are welcome. That's what this is based on, reports from people like you. You can send your report to me at [email protected] (remove ZZZ)
If you send a report please state what bank you ordered from, how long it took and roughly how far away you are from them. I'd like to know if the packaging was stealty (well hidden) and what method used and if any seeds were crushed. Any other info you think is important will be appreciated. Reports on how the crop turned out are good too.
I don't rate companies on price, that's up to you to compare. The more stars, the more reliable. F = faster than average, no letter = average, S = slow.
I have a system of additional ratings. They are a one (1) for accepting payment by money order or certified check without charging extra for it. A two (2) will be given for free stealth shipping. A three (3) will be given for accepting credit cards. This leaves a paper trail but is quick and easy. (4) indicates that they use PGP code for privacy on request. A five (5) means Western Union is accepted. A six (6) indicates customer complaints about seed quality. An example of the new rating might be Ed's seeds (***) (1,2) which means three stars and he gives free shipping and takes money orders with no extra charge.
These seedbanks send to certain countries only.
Dr Chronic 3 star and 1/2 (F***1/2)
Pukka 2 star (**) (1)
Sensi Seed 4 star and 1/2 (****1/2)
Nirvana Shop3 star and 1/2 (***1/2)
Seeds of Passion2 star (**)
These are seed breeders and wholesalers primarily. While they have a good reputation, I don't have enough information about their mail order seed business to make a rating.
(and many others)
This is the rip-off section. The following seedbanks I've heard many bad things about. They are NOT recommended. aka means also known as. X means they seldom or never send the product. N means sending non viable seeds (non sprouting seeds) M indicates they send very inferior seeds or nothing at all
A-1 Seedbank (X,N)
BC seeds (X,M)
marijuanaseed.us (X) Software Services aka Cannabis4u aka Medical hemp aka [email protected] [L.Pafort] (X)
Richies Seedshack (X)
Pot a Gold (X)
These seedbanks are not recommended due to excessive complaints. This is a judgement call and some customers have said they were satisfied. The nature of the complaints are as follows: 10 = non delivery, 11 = very poor customer service, 12 = inferior quality or misrepresented seeds, 13 = unethical conduct by seedbank owner.
BCbuddepot (11, 10)
Bullmall aka Bull-electrical.com (10, 11)
Cannabisseeds.com (10) Ganjaland (10)
Greater Harmony (10)
Laughing Moon (10, 11)
Seedbank Co uk (11)
Do NOT order from www.drchronic.com It has been 2 months since he cashed my money order and still no seeds. None of my e-mails have been answered either. They basically stole $90.00 from me.
I would advise against ordering from www.drchronic.com - if you live in USA.
I ordered from him last year and he cashed my money order but refused to send my
seeds. All my emails concerning this have been ignored by dr. ripoff. I recently ordered from the Attitude and couldn't be happier with this company. Bottom line- There are too many seed retailers out there so there is absolutely no reason to have to resort to www.drchronic.com. He took nearly $100.00 from me and it has been around 4 months
since I placed my order. Beware ordering form this thief!!!!
