    Thought I would share my experience with Strainly.io (just google the name). Was recommended by a friend who started breeding his seeds and loved the concept. It's a sort of a social-seedbank where members connect to share (trade, give away, sell) their strains.

    Selection: 500+ strains including Landrace and Heirlooms, Dutch Passion, ACE Seeds, Cannarado Genetics, InHouse Army, Bodhi, SeedJunky Genetics, Symbiotic Genetics, and many boutique breeders. Seeds, Clones and Pollen.

    Price: Usually good value but some quite highly priced listings based on rarity.

    Service: Dealt with 2 members who were very serious. Looking at feedback comments, most members seem legit. Service from Strainly admins is very responsive.

    Stealth Rating: Got seeds and clones from 2 different members. Both were quite creative, even for the clones.

    Would you order from the same bank again: YES. Probably going to order only from that site now.

    Other Comments: Very interesting concept. I love the fact that you can leave feedback to other members you deal with, which helps with avoiding scammers. Feels legit and safe. I only wish they would offer integrated payment method.

    No selling or giving away of goods unless you have an advertiser account.

    guys... is everyone posting seedbank reviews an advertiser ? I'm sharing my experience... wtf
    so this review section is not for actual fair and objective reviews, it's disguised paid ads... or I'm missing something...

    if i had extra seeds and wanted to give them away i can't because it's against the rules. same with your seedbank review... it cuffs the rules .all of the seedbank reviews here are mostly paid advertisers or breeders that supply them.

    here's the deal. if a seedbank starts screwing people over the admins will post NOT to do business with said seedbank. Now on your social media seedbank everything may seem fine till that one person starts screwing people over for a profit. are w e now to start a database of users not to do business with? that seems like allot of keeping up with. it's easier to have said website not listed here..... get what i mean?

    Thanks! makes sense now!
    Was not obvious that positive reviews were actually paid ads...

    Well nothing to complain about with Strainly... but I'm not a paid advertiser

    sorry
