The problem is that regular cannabis seeds, the kind you might find out in the wild, produce female and male plants at a ratio of roughly 50/50. As a grower, that means that it is impossible to ahead of time which seeds will produce males and which will produce males. And since males are not useful to us, that means that roughly 50% of the regular seeds you buy will be unusable.
Shipping is an eternal problem when it comes to seed banks and ordering seeds. Many of the best seed banks are located overseas and may not ship to your country. Moreover, some seed banks have flashy looking packaging that customs and border agents will snag in a heartbeat. So when it comes to shipping, make sure that the seed bank you choose offers discreet packaging and has a good track record of completed shipments to your area.
Many things can go wrong between the time you place your order and the time when the seeds arrive on your door step. Orders can be confiscated during transit by authorities. Seeds can be swapped accidentally during packaging or mislabeled in the warehouse. By the time you receive the seeds, they have travelled through a gauntlet of potential hazards.

Therefore, it is very important to make sure that the seed bank you order from has a good history of high quality customer service. A good seed bank will often work with you to solve any problems, and sometimes send free or discounted seeds to make up for any mistakes.
The decision to grow marijuana is personal. This undertaking will potentially affect many other aspects of your life. Of course, before you start, it is a good idea to get a sense of what it would take to get the project off of the ground. One of the most common questions people have when they are thinking about starting their own grow operation is: “how do I even get marijuana seeds?”
The confusion here is a sad missed opportunity to tell an incredible story in the history of cannabis cultivation. Complete with the discovery of a new species of cannabis by a revolutionary Russian botanist and the eventual genius of Dutch breeders, the story of how autoflowering cannabis strains came to be is one of the great, paradigmatic stories of international agricultural botany of the 20th century.
That’s not to say it is not still a bit tricky. There are still many restrictions on payment and shipping depending on where you live. But the internet has made life a lot easier for purveyors of the magical mystery seeds, and with a bit of perseverance, you can find seeds and have them shipped to your door in just a few days.
Is it a dumb idea to buy seeds off craigslist, since I'm in a legal state (CA)?
Or coming from a shitty breeder, since they must be produced domestically.
Yea I'd be more worried that your buying mexi schwag seeds pawned off as legit DNA
Dispensaries around here charge $8-$10 per seed, ($13 per clone), but there is some guy on CL offering "over 100 types of seeds" for $1-$2 per seed (depending on quantity). (I can post a link, if necessary — not trying to be advertising for it.)
Craigslist is full of scams, with that said there are people who do try to do legitimate transactions there also. I say it can't hurt to test and ask if you really want the deal, though I prefer viewing and knowing what I buy in a translucent setting than asking about each and every seed specifications.
