*Update* 'singing' " Got myself a tracking number for my orrrrderr!"
Glad to hear bro. I as well got a email today from Gorilla Seed Bank informing me that I had an order on the way. Really turned my view toward their service and customer satisfaction that is for sure. They didn't have to send me anything .. It was pretty much one of those bitcoin kind of put the screws to me deal and too damn bad. But Gorilla did me a 100% solid and sent an order out as a goodwill gesture. Thank you a million Gorilla !!!! Somehow being ripped off by coinbase does not boil my blood like it was now having something to show for the loss other than just a bad lesson learned. These folks stepped up and went above and beyond when the actual issues fell on the payment method and not them , that showed allot to me about them . I am very glad it turned out the way it did because I have my eye on allot of genetics they offer and their prices are great..Grateful that this mishap can be left in the past and not effect my future decisions about using them. What seemed at first as a door closing , ended up opening another door and now I'm very much looking forward to making my future orders through them , just any method other than bitcoin ..I'm done with all that noise.Guess we will see how long it takes now to get to states from their shipping location. Which by the way made me wonder ...I see they have a phone # in USA as well , So I'm wondering if they have beans here and ship from within the states, or if all the shipping is from UK ? I would think if they are also based here in the states it would be much easier for them to ship "Nationally " within the U.S from a warehouse or whatever here as to avoid all the run-around with getting through customs and all. Perhaps they will chime in on that . Anyway will let ya know when package arrives here in North East
Fucking awesome. Good looking out Gorilla.

I just ordered from them 3 week ago , i paid whit Btc got ton of freebies and everything got delivered in less than 3 weeks, super nice service and quality, i recommend them for the moment. I was really surprise by the fastest delivery and superb packaging. I Never posted a comment on this forum before but was worth it for Gorilla . Good job guys !
Just placed another order there. Had to use bank transfer as no debit/credit cards accepted. Bitcoin is very expensive to send right now so paying with bitcoin doesn't make sense.
Note to seller: Greenmed.io app went live this week. It's a cannabis payment system. User links their debit/credit card to the app. The app handles the sale by buying grmd tokens from market and exchanging those tokens for the goods sold. The seller can then automatically sell the tokens for $, or keep them in the hope their price rises. grmd tokens go live for trading on hitbtc on Jan 23rd
*Update* Got my beans! Yassssssssssss! Big up GBS and Big G.
I got an present in the mail today from Gorilla as well .. Thanks again a million for that gesture to all @ GorillaSeedBank it is very much appreciated. With this being my first experience with this bank I was really impressed with the quality of products. Many times I have ordered threw other banks and most of the times it seems as if I would get the bottom of the pick seeds that were small and barley ripe enough according to appearance. I have to say every last bean they sent looks of high quality that were top picked seeds nice and fully formed !!! The shipping was fairly fast being international , and the freebies are simply amazing !!!! Without a doubt I will be hitting them up when its time to refill on stock.. I'm already planning ahead another method of payment so I can be a step ahead of the game when ordering the next round of gems from them.. Thanks Again Gorilla
Thanks for the information mate !
I am looking into this as an option.
A million thanks to you too, WildWoodFlower !!!
Thanks for hanging in there with us on the BTC madness. We did not realize that some sites have crazy fees...that was ridiculous !
The Gorilla most definitely appreciates all of your support !
The Gorilla's heart is a flutter with your comments, which you took the time out of your day & lives to post on here....thank you guys !!!
Are you guys accepting CC? I may make a purchase at the end of the month is so.
Thanks for your question, it's a great one !
:::sigh::: I WISH credit cards were working...but they're still not . We've had times in the past in which customers outside the U.K wanting to buy from us could use their debit/credit card by simply calling their bank & authorising their card for international purchases a day prior. However, that's not even working right now. It's been since at least Christmastime that we've been having this issue. It would be great to say otherwise, but that wouldn't be honest.
Basically, Gorilla's payment options are Cash via registered mail, Bank Transfer or BTC (Bitcoin).
Regarding $$$/Bank Transfer, instructions are automatically emailed to you when you order. For Bitcoin, we have a page with a short video for instructions: https://www.gorilla-cannabis-seeds.co.uk/bitcoin
Thanks for your interest in Gorilla, his awesome seeds & reaching out .
I can do cash, but will you accept USD? If not, I’d do the bank transfer.
Awesome, sounds like a plan, Olive !
Yes, definitely! Please send it utilising registered mail. Instructions will be emailed to you when you order selecting cash as a payment method.
If you have anymore questions, please feel free to reach back out ...and also ignore those other users in your post. Apparently their maturity level is null.
Ok, so my last delivery was fast and I appreciated that. But, I've had problems with one of the purchases which is not Gorillia's fault, but, I feel you should know in case the same happens to you. One of the products I'd bought was Greenhouse seeds Trainwreck pack of 5. Not a single seed from the 5 germinated.
I only have a small grow space, it fits 3 plants. I originally started with a Dinafem Kush n Cheese, Fastbuds Girl Scout Cookie, and Greenhouse Trainweck. The Kush is doing great. The GSC died soon after sprouting (it's been replaced with a Fastbuds Gorilla Glue which seems to be doing ok. The Trainwreck has been a nightmare. I started with one seed, it sunk in a glass of h20 immediately, 12hrs later wrapped it in moist kitchen towel, into a bag, and put away in a warm sock draw. 3 days later, nothing. I give it a few more days, nothing. Ok, i'll try again. Second seed in h20, no immediate sink. 12hrs later, I tap it lightly with my finger and it sinks. I wrap it up and put it away. 3 days later, nothing, Give it another couple of days, nothing. At this point I'm getting pissed ha. I thought about giving up on the TW so as not to lose too much time in getting a 3rd plant in my space. Instead, I put the remaining 3 seeds into H20. Two of them sink straight away. 3 days later (yesterday), nothing.
Right now I have 4 seeds sitting in a moist paper towel and 1 (#2) which I decided to plant anyway but that hasn't sprouted.
There seems to be something up with Greenhouse. I'd never used them before but surely they can't be this bad? I wrote to them last night because 0 out of 5 is shocking and deserves being called out upon. I'm hoping it was just a bad batch that they can trace via some numbers on the packaging such as the QR code
GHS beans are shit. I dunno what it is, but for legit genetics, their beans have a reputation for the poorest health and vigor ever.
Which breeders have the best reputation? Would be interested to know.
Hope some others chime in , But I really like Dutch passion for reliable genetics ( in my Collection) but there are a great number of other solid Breeders. Hoping some other members chime in!
I did speak with Greenhouse and they asked me to show proof of purchase (pics of dead seeds etc) before sending me a replacement 5 pack of Trainwreck. They arrived around one week or so later. I promptly put two in H20 (the brownest looking seeds after GH told me the darker ones (almost black) are no good) in the hope that 1 germed. Nope, 4 days later, nothing. Greenhouse seeds is a waste of time and money.
In the meantime, the Dinafem Kush'n'Cheese is growing into a monster. Her leaves feel like thick leather. I topped her at 5th node and it didn't slow her down any at all, the new shoots just carried on right in front of me without missing a skip. The Fast Buds AF's are looking a bit skinny and scrawny in comparison to the Dinafem
Yesterday I placed my first order with Gorilla. Unfortunately, even though I paid for an "instant" transfer from my bitcoin wallet provider, the payment did not arrive within the 15 minute time frame. Now they are saying that I need to request a refund (minus a fee that is undisclosed to me) and send my payment again. Is this correct? I have asked them to process the order, but apparently they are closed for the day now. If they will not process my order I will purchase from someplace else.
