USA Residents Please Note:
For USA residents, international orders will not go through if you try to use a pre-paid debit or credit card. This used to be a way to
add security to your order (purchase a pre-paid card in cash, then use that to make your online order) but these cards no longer work with any international order due to a change in laws that occured in 2012. However, there are lots of safe options to get marijuana seeds in the USA, listed below.

Ships: Worldwide Except Australia
(highly recommended choice for buying cannabis seeds in the USA!)


  • 10 free mixed seeds with every order!

  • Fast, Discreet Shipping - At, we believe Nirvana is one of the most stealthy seed vendors - seeds arrive quickly, on time, with inconspicuous packaging. 

  • Responsive & Caring Customer Service - they actually breed and grow their strains in house, so they can accurately answer your questions

  • Well-established - Nirvana has been breeding and selling top-quality seeds for decades (they offered cannabis seeds by mail-order before the internet, so they have a lot of experience providing seeds around the world)

  • Accepts a wide variety of payment options (bank draft, cash, credit)

  • Visit them in person if you’re in Amsterdam!

Nirvana Seeds accepts a wide variety of payment options to suit your needs


  • Since they breed their own seeds (hence their slogan "straight from the source"), they only carry strains developed by Nirvana. This means you have a much smaller selection than a huge "seed bank."

  • Sorry, no seeds shipped to Australia

From a reader: “I've ordered from Nirvana 3 times, and I can't recommend them highly enough. All 3 times I purchased feminized seeds. Price after shipping was roughly $60 for 10 seeds. Delivery was very stealthy and took 1 - 1 1/2 weeks. The first time I bought from them, it took a little longer to arrive, and I contacted them with my concerns. They shipped out another order the same day, and were extremely helpful and polite. I ended up receiving both packages after all. 100% of seeds have germinated and been female.”

Seed Finder (Seed Search Engine)



Get your weed seeds! This Northern Light weed plant is showing off the great Northern Light genesWhich strain should I buy for my first grow?

There's lots of great information about strains online, and via the Seed Finder link above. My best suggestion is to do a little research on the strain and breeder, and grow a strain that seems interesting to you. If you're still not sure, a great option for first time growers is Northern Lights, since this strain is potent, stays short, is easy to grow, and has a relatively low smell compared to most other strains.

How to Find the Right Cannabis Strain For You



Safety Precautions when Buying Marijuana Seeds online

When ordering marijuana seeds online, It is important to research all applicable laws in your area regarding purchasing and possessing cannabis seeds. Just because a marijuana seed bank or marijuana breeder is willing to ship to your location doesn't necessarily mean that it is legal for you to have possession of marijuana seeds at your location.

  1. Don't tell your friends that you're growing! This may seem like it's common sense, but this is the number one most common reason cannabis growers are caught, because they told a friend who told a friend who told the wrong person. Hundreds of seeds get confiscated every day, but no one gets into trouble. Don't worry about seeds; worry about a friend or family member finding out! No matter how much you trust someone, you can never trust someone else as closely as yourself. Never ever tell anyone you grow your own weed, for any reason. It's tempting to brag about your awesome growing skills and top-shelf bud, but you never want to even hint that you know how to grow to anyone! If other people are talking about growing marijuana, bite your lip and act dumb! 

  2. You likely will not be able to use a pre-paid credit card. Using a pre-paid card purchased with cash used to be a way to order seeds online without tying the order to your real cards or address. But unless the pre-paid card specifically states it can be used internationally, it will not be accepted when making international orders. 

  3. Be Patient! In my experience ordering cannabis seeds online from overseas, my cannabis seeds have generally arrived 1-4 weeks after my initial order. 

How do I germinate marijuana seeds?

If you have done your research and are now considering purchasing cannabis seeds online, then you may be surprised to learn that it is actually very reliable and safe to buy your marijuana seeds online from a reputable seed bank.

Don't you want to see a marijuana leaf growing in real life? Have you dreamed of seeing a real live marijuana plant growing in your home? Maybe you want to take some weed pictures and submit them to show off your newfound growing skills?

Ordering weed seeds online from a seed bank will allow you to purchase feminized seeds (all-female marijuana seeds) and will also let you pick the exact strain to match your size and time requirements.

Having only female weed seeds is a huge advantage for the small grower who won't be breeding new strains and may have limited space and doesn't want to have to waste time and energy on throwing away half their cannabis plants at the flowering stage because they ended up being male cannabis plants.

Easy access to buy incredibly potent cannabis strains is another great reason many growers choose to buy weed seeds online.

Grow your own pretty top-shelf buds with quality genetics

Common Question: Where do I buy marijuana seeds in the USA?

You have 2 real options:

  • Use random bagseed that you find

  • Buy seeds of specific marijuana strains online

Marijuana seeds grow into beautiful marijuana seedlings like thisWanna learn how to buy marijuana seeds online at a cannabis seed bank, marijuana breeder, or other vendor?

Before anyone can start growing marijuana they have to first get their hands on marijuana seeds or marijuana clones.

Marijuana seeds are often the easiest for new growers to start with since - unlike marijuana clones - they don't require access to someone who is already growing marijuana plants. When you see your first tiny little weed leaf you will know it was all worth it!

More Information About Using the Nirvana Shop for buying cannabis seeds online.

One of the best things about Nirvana is the fact that customers are allowed to leave reviews for strains that they've purchased. You get so much extra information in the reviews and often this has been helpful during my grows.

For those who don't want to have to deal with male plants, they have a proven selection of Femininzed Seeds.

We have always had great customer service from Nirvana Shop, and have received our orders quickly and discretely.

Buy Cannabis Seeds Online at the Nirvana Seed Bank! Safe Online Weed Seeds!Nirvana has been around for over 10 years and has a great reputation on the internet.

Try searching google for "nirvana shop" and you will read nothing but glowing reviews. In the few instances where they have made a mistake, the customer service team has a reputation for going above and beyond to make things right.

In addition, all seeds come with free stealth shipping which will ensure that your seeds will make it. I don't want to go into details on the internet about what they do, but let me just say that I was pleasantly surprised at how my cannabis seeds arrived with their free stealth shipping.

If you're not sure which cannabis strains to buy seeds for, I highly recommend feminized Northern Lights or feminized Aurora Indica for beginners.  Both are hardy strains that provide great yields and have potent medicinal effects.

Northern Light has a particularly short growing period, so you can be harvesting your buds in only 2-3 months!
