Hiya! Welcome to the ultimate overview of seed banks that deliver to the USA, to Australia, to New Zealand, to Canada and the U.K.
Wondering which seed banks ship to your country, and what the shipping options and charges look like? This summary covers five of the main anglophone countries: the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Where possible, I’ve added the (approximate) costs of shipping as well as available guarantees.
As for the included online seed banks and retailers – there are many, but narrowing it down to only really good ones does trim the selection a bit. If a company doesn’t have a positive reputation, solid delivery policies, great customer service and a user friendly website to browse, I wouldn’t in all integrity be able to recommended it. Did I miss one that should be included? Let me know in the comments!
(This page goes further into what the better seed banks do to stand out from the crowd.)
Seed banks that ship to the USA
1. Canadian seed banks Crop King Seeds & True North Seed Bank
Crop King Seeds delivers cannabis seeds to the USA. Customers can choose between two options: $30 or $60 express delivery, and both are guaranteed. Their cheapest $10 shipping is simply not available to USA addresses.
True North Seed Bank ships to the USA for CA$30 (that’s roughly US$ ).
2. I love growing marijuana from the Netherlands
At I love growing marijuana shipping to the US is free, and delivery is guaranteed. If you don’t receive your order within 25 business days, it will be reshipped free of charge. Of course, this excludes incorrect addresses. There is a ninety day window from the initial shipping date to contact customer service.
3. British seed banks Seedsman & Seedsupreme
Seedsman ships worldwide. Shipping to the USA is … and only when you select discrete delivery upon checkout the arrival of you order is guaranteed (as in: will be resent in case of loss or interception, once the maximum waiting time has passed.)
At Seedsupreme, a Seed Bank based in the U.K., shipping is free for orders over 190. (Approx. US$245, convert here.) Anything under that amount is shipped worldwide, tracked and stealthy for just under US$15.
In case you’re reading this from a different country, I should specify that the tracked worldwide shipping and guaranteed delivery applies to a select shortlist of countries only. To avoid disappointment, please be sure to check for any updates here. At the moment of writing, it says:
Please note we only offer tracked shipping to the following countries: Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Canary Islands, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the USA.
If you order your cannabis seeds to any country which does not allow Royal Mail tracfking we will send it but cannot guarantee it’s delivery, even if you select the [Guaranteed Delivery] product on checkout.
Seedsupreme’s stealth packaging methods are rigorous and don’t cost anything extra. For a small fee of US$10.45 you can add guaranteed delivery. Free seeds are added to larger orders. The shopping cart conveniently tells you exactly how much more to add to quality for those freebies.
Australia & New Zealand
Some of the best seed banks specifically exclude these two countries from their worldwide guaranteed delivery policy.
Below you’ll find a list of seed banks that do deliver cannabis seeds to Australia and New Zealand, but please be aware that it is a complete mix-and-match. None of the other countries yield such jagged results. Shipping ranges from cheap to quite expensive, with the guaranteed delivery options switching back and forth between being unavailable, optional at a surcharge, or simply free.
Apparently Australia and New Zealand have some very, very motivated people working at customs. It makes you wonder how much they get paid. Maybe there are additional incentives – a bonus for every intercepted parcel…? Orders of cannabis seeds are seized often enough for Crop King Seeds, True North Seed Bank and SunWest Genetics to take the two countries out of their guaranteed delivery policy.
Seed banks that deliver to Australia & New Zealand
Crop King Seeds ships to Australia and New Zealand for $10. That is the only way to order, as the more expensive shipping options with a guaranteed delivery that are mandatory for international shipping are not available to AUS/NZ. Delivery can take up to three weeks, and you’re taking a gamble here – lost or seized orders are not resent.
At True North Seed Bank shipping to Australia and New Zealand is CA $75. They strongly recommend adding an extra item (like a mug, wallet, t-shirt…) for extra stealth shipping. This still does not guarantee delivery, though it may up your chances to fly under the radar of the overachievers at customs.
Don’t despair, though! The Dutch company I love growing Marijuana has your back. Orders come with guaranteed delivery (yes, even for you guys & gals!) and are dispatched for only US$25 for orders under $150. Above $150, shipping is free, and – wait for it… – still guaranteed.
Both Australia and New Zealand are on Seedsupreme‘s list of countries to which tracked shipping (US$14.37) and guaranteed delivery (optional, US$10.45) are available. So there’s another great seed bank that’s happy to serve customers on the Southern Hemisphere.
The United Kingdom
Ilovegrowingmarijuana ships to the UK (and other European countries) for free, and delivery is guaranteed. If you don’t receive your order within 25 business days, it will be reshipped free of charge.
Seedsman is one of the better known online retailers of cannabis seeds. Orders sent to domestic addresses in the U.K. should arrive within mere days.
U.K. residents can also order cannabis seeds from Sensi seeds, Amsterdam seed center or Royal Queen seeds. These three seed banks only send seeds to customers in select European countries, including the U.K.
Keeping it local, yet another online retailer of cannabis seeds located in Great Britain is Seedsupreme.
Of course, if you’re intrigued by something further away, nothing prevents you from checking out the international shipping options of these Canadian seed banks.
Seed banks in (or shipping to) Canada
Surprisingly enough, I love growing marijuanana does not ship to Canada. Can’t feel too sorry for you folks up there, though. 😉 You have a myriad of awesome Canadian seed banks to pick from, with affordable domestic shipping.
Orders from Crop King Seeds, SunWest Genetics, and True North Seed Bank should show up in your mailbox within mere days. Add to that all the local stores and selling points throughout the country… Canadians in urban areas may not even need to purchase seeds online.
Other seed banks that ship worldwide, including to Canada:
Seedsman (a breeder/seed bank) and Seedsupreme (a retailer seed bank, selling strains from many different breeders).
Best Seed banks delivering to the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the U.K.
Well, I hope this overview is helpful in determining your best options! Don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you know of another great online seed bank delivering to the United States, or any of the other countries listed.
To sum things up:
In summary, the most welcoming online seed bank – not excluding any countries at all – is the Netherlands/Spain based I love growing marijuana. Especially if you’re new to growing, don’t miss their free Marijuana Grow Bible.
Great Canadian seed banks that ship to the USA are True North Seed Bank and Crop King Seeds. While those don’t ship for free, rumor has it that mail from Canada is less prone to interception than mail from the Netherlands.
The United Kingdom and Canada are well served when it comes to the shipping of cannabis seeds by international seed banks. They both also have plenty of options without even leaving the country.
Australia and New Zealand are clearly the (down-)underdog here, but this is where I love growing marijuana stands out from the crowd. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for there, Seedsupreme may just be the one.
