    Gypsy Nirvana/Seed Boutique rip off not Nirvana Original.
    I ordered from Gypsy Nirvana's Seed Boutique and got Ripped Off. I read hundreds of grest customer reviews on the net befor ordering.Now some of those great reviews may have been for Nirvana Original not Gypsy Nirvana's/Seed Boutique.Customers said in reviews they ordered with a CC but Nirvana's/Seed Boutique don't take CC.
    I now ordered form Nirvana Original lets see what happens.
    If they dont come thru Ill try Doc Cronic and then I give up.

    For 45 days now they suspended my order and I still haven't had my money refunded yet.Everyday I e-mail these clowns and not once have I recieved a reply from their website.They have pretty well took my money and ran,that is how low this company is.The funny thing is, is that I have read nothing but good reviews about their website, what a joke.I ordered from Dr.Chronic and recieved my order all the way to B.C. Canada in just 3 days and the thing is I read nothing good about their company believe it or not.GYPSY NIRVANA'S SEED BOUTIQUE SUCKS!!!

    Gypsy Nirvana more than met my expectations:


    I placed an order with Gypsy Nirvana that shipped out two days later on June 23rd. I received my order the following Saturday, June 28th! (I live in Southern California). And I only paid $2.97 for best way shipping

    Only two of the five freebie seeds sprouted, but all of the Big Bud seeds I've germinated so far have sprouted.

    They'll get repeat business from this girl.

    I posted on another forum about Gypsy Nirvana, so I hope it's okay to copy it here. When I went shopping for seeds earlier in the summer, I ordered from 3 different sites.....Dr. Chronic, The Attitude, (my personal favorite), and Seed-Boutique. Got my Attitude order in 4 days. Dr. Chronic was 2 days later, and I'm still waiting for Seed-Boutique. It wasn't until some time after I placed the orders that I remembered having ordered from Gypsy Nirvana once before......years ago....and got ripped off then! Here's the copy of one of the many emails I have sent to them. No reply.....No seeds........ripped off....

    Greetings,

    I WOULD LIKE TO FIRST ASSURE YOU THAT I HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY PATIENT WAITING FOR MY SEED ORDER TO ARRIVE. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I'VE ORDERED THROUGH YOUR "STORE",AND THE SECOND TIME IN WHICH I HAVE NOT RECEIVED WHAT I PURCHASED FROM YOU. NOR HAVE ANY OF MY EMAILS TO YOU BEEN REPLIED TO. I WASN'T GOING TO ORDER FROM YOU AGAIN AFTER THE FIRST ORDER I PLACED AND NEVER RECEIVED, (AND IT WAS NOT SEIZED BY CUSTOMS). REST ASSURED THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME I EVER DO BUSINESS WITH YOU. I'VE GOTTEN EXCELLENT RESULTS, (AND ANSWERS TO ALL OF MY EMAILS), FROM DR. CHRONIC AND THE MOST INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL SERVICE FROM THE ATTITUDE. I GUESS I'VE LEARNED MY LESSON......DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM GYPSY NIRVANA. I HOPE THE MONEY YOU RECEIVED FROM ME WAS PUT TO GOOD USE....LIKE BUYING SOME WEED! THOUGH I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT THIS EMAIL WILL BE READ AND I WILL RECEIVE NO RESPONSE, I JUST THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY. I'M BEGINNING TO BELIEVE THE THINGS I'VE READ ABOUT YOUR STORE ON SITES LIKE "ROLL IT UP". YOU DON'T COME HIGHLY PRAISED OR RECOMMENDED BY MANY PEOPLE.

    HOPING YOU HAVE AT LEAST READ THIS EMAIL,

    JEFF

    I honestly do not know what you guys are doing wrong, I've orderd from Gypsy (seedboo) like 7 times and im in the USA.. always recieved my beans, never crushed.. I've had mostly good luck w/ attitude seed bank also, although I bought 10 blue cheese from them and all where garbage except 3 of them which were tiny unhealthy looking seeds. The only time I've ever had a order intercepted is when I ordered from Doc Chronic..

    But yea Seedboo has been the best bank so far that I've ordered from right up there with highgrade-seeds

    I have never used GNS because I have never heard anything but bad things about it but I just looked to see if they accept credit cards and as soon as I entered the site the following popped up.

    New Payment Options Available!
    Now accepting Visa and Mastercard only. We do not accept AMEX, Discover or Maestro cards. Happy Shopping!




    I do not know how long that has been popping up so what they call new might not be very recent but it seems that it cannot be all that long ago that CC's were not accepted.

    Considering the product I am not sure someone would want to do it but if someone purchases something online or by mail order and they never receive it they can contact their credit card company and get a refund.

    Then the business can appeal and attempt to collect payment again so it is not 100% and as I said considering the product someone might not care to try that but it can be done.

    I will NEVER order from SB again after my last experience. I don't want to relive the details, lets just say that in the event that anything does go wrong with your order they will NOT take care of you. ZERO customer service! Once they have your money it's over. Pay a little more and go with attitude seed bank if service is an issue.

    I think there is some confusion when it comes to Nirvana, Gypsy Nirvana-Seed Boutique.
    They are two separate entities. The real, honest to goodness "Nirvana" site is just that. IT IS NIRVANA. The Seed Boutique is a different website and they're the ones to watch out for. I've ordered directly from Nirvana with no problems. They've got an email system that lets you know where they are in the process of fulfilling your order. SB....Screw them. I did have had one of my Nirvana orders confiscated, (I'm in the U.S.). Personally, I will never order from a site/shop that send their orders directly from the Netherlands.....Think about that one. I have been using The Attitude exclusively now for some time. UK based. I've never had any kind of problem with them. Timely delivery and great customer service. I'm not a "pitch man" for them. They're simply the only place that's never ripped me off or let me down in any way. IMHO. Peace!

    I've never had an issue with SB delivery but the seeds (that say they are from Nirvana) have never sprouted a female for me? WTF? I gotten seeds from Paradise and Big Buddah (through SB) and got females. Are Nirvana genitics sucky? I've heard that but now I'm wondering as I used a Shiva/NL male from Nirvana to pollinate a couple of females... Ugh! I hope I didn't screw up!

    Never had any problems with seed boutique.. 6 orders since last year and not 1 took longer than 2 weeks to arrive to florida.

    I have heard the female to male ratio with nirvana sucks... Ive only grew out there white rhino and it was killer shit, 9/10 germd but only 3 were females...

    Anyway.. came back on this site to set the record straight... My friend did get his Mt Cook a few days ago. SB came through big time and I think my friend has to thank Gypsy and Old Pink for everything. My friend reached out to OP and he calmed all the gitters. SeedBoutique is who I recommend!

    They are indeed scammers, I got ripped off, OF ALL TIMES, ON CHRISTMAS, ordering from these or this asshole liar. He never refunded my order when I informed him I had not received it, and on top of that, THE SYSTEM DIDN'T RECORD AN ORDER NUMBER, and he kept blaming me and not acknowledging any fault on his part, and to rub it in, banned my card. And apparently he or they have seen this post and are now claiming they accept credit cards (apparently to further confuse people as to which company is which as was pointed out in this thread). Spread the word not to order from that thieving site, and if anyone can locate the true origin of this "store" let it be known so that this guy can get his just punishment. What's ironic is that when he complained about the tone of my email, he admitted, unintentionally apparently, that he'd had a lot of complaints during Christmas and that they were all polite, I wonder why he had a lot of complaints in the first place? What a massive fucking turd this guy is. Someone kick his asshole in.

    I got ripped off from them twice! Screw me once....shame on me. Screw me twice.....Gypsy Nirvana is a major scam. And I don't know why Nirvana, the real one, doesn't do something to try to get those freaks outta here! I won't order from Nirvana either. The only place that's never caused me problems has been the Attitude.

    i was 2 for 2 last year from Seed Boutique, both cash orders through the mail
    seed germination rate at 100%, just 2 seeds used so far though
    killed one from heat, 2nd one is a male, but can't complain so far for regular seeds, you're going to get some males

    My experience of gypsy nirvana.. I ordered 5 seeds.. got 5 more free

    and so far the 5 i have germinating have not germinated and it's been 4 days and i'm starting to lose hope.. i heard it can take 12 days..

    anyways i experienced really fast really stealthy shipping.. no broken seeds.

    Also the customer service was very good.. responded to all my emails and really helped me alot

    EDIT : actually 3 of my seeds just germinated and i think it will be 2 more days for the others.

    just recount my experience, 1 of my seeds was a bitch to germinate
    soaked in water for 4 days, nothing
    then gently shaved seed coat, tap root slowly popped out
    went in to wet towels for another weeks
    finally big enough to plant, took another week to break ground
    i think many of SB seeds are from the freezer, they can sprout quite slowly, but worth it to keep going
