    Strains on Nirvana Seeds and Dr. Chronic Seeds websites are alluring and I've never ordered marijuana seeds before because I'm paranoid of potential risks.
    I'm trying to educate myself on the risk of ordering marijuana seeds online but don't see many people write about the topic of advice for how to order, law, and risk. I could benefit from experienced advice.

    (1) Is posessing marijuana/hemp seeds in the USA illegal? If so what is the penalty for marijuana/hemp seed posession? Court? Fine? Jail? None of the above?

    (2) When you place a cash USD order in the mail to a seedbanks mail address, is the seedbanks address an address tracked by the USA gov? Are these mail envelopes opened?

    (3) When the seedbank sends their package to the buyer is the seedbanks address printed on the package and is that address tracked by the USA gov? Ever opened?

    (4) Do you provide the seedbanks your real name and address when placing an order so that the order is sent to you at your home? Do you use an alias name and alternate address? Any suggestions for remaining anonymous? Is it necessary?

    Thanks for your wisdom in advance!

    Dr. Chronic is a rip off. I ordered from him and never got the seeds. Nirvana I'm not sure about, but have heard good.

    I live in the US and have gotten weed in the mail from Canada with no problems. Don't worry. Order the seeds and overgrow the fascists US government.

    I have no interest in battling uncle sam.
    I'm interested in growing low under the radar, unnoticed by uncle sam.
    I'm interested in advice for the most stealth way of obtaining a few seeds to grow for myself from one of those seedbanks.

    Any one have advice?

    Dr. Chronic dosnt ship to the US anymore, nirvana and WWMS look like the two best for shiping now.
    worst case scenario, customs intercepts the package, and takes the seeds, and sends you a letter saying you wont be getting your package, thats it nothing else. it would be incredibly hard for them to be able to prove that you had the seeds deliverd to youre house

    Dr.Chronic does mean it now as I read on another forum from someone who grows a substantial amount of green saying his order got cancelled and returned back.....Seedboutique and Seedbay are awesome fast and discreet shipping they even take ccards....lol.....The only gripe I have with them is as of late there seed lists are old and have not been updated.....peace

    Thanks for that info everyone.
    Does anyone have the answers to my initial questions?

    (1) Is posessing marijuana/hemp seeds in the USA illegal? If so what is the penalty for marijuana/hemp seed posession? Court? Fine? Jail? None of the above?

    (2) When you place a cash USD order in the mail to a seedbanks mail address, is the seedbanks address an address tracked by the USA gov? Are these mail envelopes opened?

    (3) When the seedbank sends their package to the buyer is the seedbanks address printed on the package and is that address tracked by the USA gov? Ever opened?

    (4) Do you provide the seedbanks your real name and address when placing an order so that the order is sent to you at your home? Do you use an alias name and alternate address? Any suggestions for remaining anonymous? Is it necessary?

    and some companies have "stealth packaging". sending to your house is fine. altho if u paranoid send to bf/gf's or parents house.

    Thanks Buzzza.
    I've got a Walgreens a few blocks away and I'm sure if I look up store locations online I could find either a cvs or riteaid.
    How do you explain to your b/g or parents that you ordered weed seeds to their house? They'll be curious what the package is for sure.
    "Lucy, you got some splainin to do!" :roll:
    They don't exactly want to be under investigation by Customs or some other gov agency. Also, it wouldn't take too long for them to connect the dots back to me.

    Anyone know if there is any anonymity with PO boxes?

    I dont know anything about that. but as I said before the absolute worst possible thing that could happen is that you get a letter instead of seeds.
    lots of people order their seeds under their real name to their front door. and are still here. its not incredibly safe. but safe enough to have orderd to your house with your name and all that. again, you can NOT be arrested for ordering small amount of seeds. even if you somhow got pulled over outside, and had seeds on you, and a cop saw it they would probably just take them and say bad!

    Just a bit of my experience in ordering, i used Dutchseeds.com . They shipped it with no return address in a bubble envelope. Inside the envelope was a piece of paper that said i had won a free ash tray. Open the ashtray and the seeds were in the back behind a piece of gauze out of plain view. As far as the credit card payment i tried looking on my statement but could not find it cause they make a phoney name to charge by.

    The only seedbank that guarantees in writing you'll get your order is Highgrade Seeds. If you're looking for fast, stealthy packaging and a guarantee of delivery think about using them. Here's a list of strains they carry:

    I ordered my seeds yesterday. I used a pre paid Visa gift card and shipped them to a P.O. box that my friend has. I just kept emailing sites and asked them if they would ship. Hopefully i wont jet ripped off.
