penalty for transporting weed seeds overseas

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.

Many of our UK customers wonder whether you can bring cannabis seeds from Amsterdam to the UK. Although this information should not be seen as legal advice, we know that weed seeds are not prohibited in the UK as long as you don’t germinate them. However, it’s unknown to us whether you can bring cannabis seeds from the Netherlands to England.

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 legislation is rapidly changing, and with it is the cannabis landscape. However, as we have already alluded to, cannabis seeds in principle are not illegal across Europe. It is actually possible to buy seeds from other countries and have them shipped to your home address.

While this broad approach applies to Europe, when a product enters a specific country, it is then subject to that country’s laws. Therefore, it is possible to buy seeds prohibited in your own country, but legal in another.

EVERY COUNTRY IS DIFFERENT

To make matters even more confusing, in 1962, the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs formed the framework for legislation worldwide. 180 member states signed the international treaty, which deems cannabis an illegal substance. Cannabis seeds, however, are not. In seed form, they do not possess any narcotic components. International law does take precedence over national law, meaning cannabis seeds are technically legal in all of the member states.

Taking a similar approach to the UK, Spain has a slightly more lenient stance regarding cannabis and its seeds. It is legal to buy and sell cannabis seeds as long as it is for personal use in private areas. As such, it’s possible to germinate cannabis seeds for personal use without falling foul of the law, unless it can be proved that you intend to traffic.

Cannabis seeds are rich in proteins and amino acids, making them a great healthy snack. They are also commonly used in fishing bait, additives, luxury bird food, or as souvenirs or collector’s items.
