is possession of weed seeds illegal

South Africa has decriminalized the use of cannabis in a private room, but there are still many questions. For example, whether you can buy cannabis seeds legally.

In addition, in spite of the 1962 treaty most countries have their own point of view regarding cannabis seeds. We therefore strongly advise everyone to check the legality of cannabis seeds in their own country before buying.

Are cannabis seeds legally for sale in Spain?

Please note: as a German grower you have to buy your seeds from a source within the EU.

In Europe it’s legal to buy and sell small quantities of cannabis seeds (online). However, selling seeds in bulk to individuals isn’t allowed. Especially because selling bulk is considered an encouragement for large-scale breeding. At the same time it remains unclear where the line is drawn between small and large scale quantities. Many seed banks therefore sell seeds in small quantities.

We therefore provide an answer per country for the question: is it legal to buy weed seeds online?

Spain is a decentralized country with autonomous regions that can define their own regulations. Nevertheless, the policy of the provinces on cannabis seeds is almost the same everywhere: buying and selling cannabis seeds in Spain is permitted for private use. It’s therefore not strictly illegal to own and grow a few cannabis seeds in Spain unless it can be proven that you are planning to trade in weed.

Cannabis seeds occupy a certain grey area within the law. Although it is likely that any buyer intends to germinate those seeds to ultimately produce marijuana, it cannot be proven by buying or owning cannabis seeds by itself. In fact, there are definite alternative uses for cannabis seeds, apart from producing marijuana. Being rich in proteins and amino acids, they are considered a healthy food supplement. And by themselves, the seeds have none of the effects on one’s state of mind commonly attributed to marijuana. Therefore, neither owning or trading cannabis seeds is illegal in the UK. It is that way in most of Europe.

The main reason it is and it will probably stay that way in the foreseeable future is the signing of a treaty, following the Convention on Narcotic Drugs in 1962. This important international treaty – which as such takes precedence over national law – determines that marijuana is illegal, but not its seeds. The 180 countries (including the UK) that signed the treaty, committed themselves to a definition of narcotics that does not include cannabis seeds.

Alright. Selling and owning cannabis seeds is legal in both the Netherlands and the UK. That makes buying seeds from our online seed shop completely legal if you are residing in the UK. However, as stated, marijuana itself is illegal as is its production or the (provable) intention to do so. That means that germinating the seeds into plants is an illegal act. A cannabis plant in that regard is no different from any other item of which the ownership is illegal. Both the actual ownership as (provable) attempts to gain ownership are illegal and punishable by law.

The knowledge that your purchase of cannabis seeds in this web shop is 100 percent legal is no doubt a comforting thought. Our excellent products guarantee many more such comforts.
