Is it legal to buy marijuana seeds?

You may be surprised to learn that buying cannabis seeds in the UK is completely legal, providing that they are for collection, research and to be kept as souvenirs only. Purchasing weed seeds for germination is against the law and attempting to grow cannabis plants might land you in trouble with the authorities and possibly behind bars! Growing marijuana is illegal whether you are growing indoors or growing plants outdoors.

Marijuana seeds should be stored somewhere cool, dark and dry to prevent any unwanted germination or deterioration.

You might be wondering how many cannabis seeds you are allowed to buy and keep. As it stands, here in the UK, you can buy and possess as many cannabis seeds as you like, there is no limit or restriction on how many and what kind of seeds you have whether they are feminised cannabis seeds, regular cannabis seeds or autoflowering cannabis seeds.

Cannabis seeds and the law

Always be sure to check the local laws where you live so that you don't get yourself caught up in illegal activity - the punishment for growing cannabis (even male plants) can be quite severe and can even land you in jail!

When you buy seeds be sure to store cannabis seeds in a dark, cool and dry container or airlock bag to prevent germination. If you own and store cannabis seeds then it is your responsibility to ensure that they are stored responsibly, any growth of cannabis is illegal unless you have a special licence.

What to look for when buying weed seeds

There are a multitude of things to consider when buying cannabis seeds and it can be somewhat confusing for new and experienced buyers alike. Here we will break down some of the different types of seeds to make it easier for you to decide what seeds you would like to buy.

What to look for may depend on what you already have in your collection and what properties you are looking for in your seeds. There are three main categories to consider - Feminised, Autoflower and Regular seeds. Within these categories you will find hundreds of different cannabis strains all with their own unique cannabinoid profiles.

What is a cannabis strain?

Strains or chemovars (chemical variations) are basically different breeds of cannabis plants. People often describe three strains as Indica, Sativa and Ruderalis each with different properties but this isn't strictly the case. There are thousands of different strains (including hybrids of Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis), each with their own properties and unique cannabinoid profiles. (Cannabinoids are the active compounds found within cannabis plants responsible for different effects.)

When we talk about different strains for example; Northern lights, Chem Dog, Kush, Gorilla Glue etc. each of them have different levels of cannabinoids in them. Furthermore they contain different levels of terpenes (responsible for the smell) and flavonoids (responsible for the taste). It is these varying levels that give each 'strain' their unique characteristics.

Types of cannabis seeds

At ICE Headshop we sell cannabis seeds of many different varieties including:

  • Feminized cannabis seeds - These are seeds that are guaranteed to produce female plants. Female plants are the cannabis plants that produce buds often smoked by cannabis users. Feminised seeds are popular among enthusiasts that specifically want female marijuana seeds in their collection.
  • Autoflowering cannabis seeds - Unlike feminised seeds, autoflowering seeds flower without the need to change the light cycle. An Autoflower cannabis seed automatically flowers when germinated making them a popular choice for all collectors.
  • Regular cannabis seeds - Regular cannabis seeds are the seeds that are made when a male cannabis plant pollinates a female plant. There is no guarantee of the gender of the seed so most growers with experience will then separate the male and female plants to prevent the male plants turning all of the female plants male. Male plants do not produce the buds that female plants do but are often use for industrial purposes like making rope, paper and other building materials.
