Finding cannabis seeds can be really hard if you don’t know where to start. Since Reefertilizer wants to make growing weed easier, we have put together this list of trusted cannabis seed retailers.
Seeds are expensive but what’s nice about a lot of these online retailers is that they usually give you a few free seeds with every order.
Be sure to check your local laws about growing cannabis before you order.
Top 3 tips for selecting cannabis seeds
1 – Choose the right cultivar for your growing conditions. For example, sativa dominant cultivars have a long flowering time and don’t usually do well outdoors in northern climates.
2 – If it’s your first time growing weed choose an easy-to-grow cultivar. Not all types of cannabis are easy to grow. Start with a resilient cultivar like white widow or northern lights before moving on to something that will require more attention.
3 – You get what you pay for. Cannabis seeds are expensive but what you’re paying for is years of selective breeding to create solid and trusted genetics. Good genetics means your plants will be more consistent and less prone to stress and going hermaphroditic. Choose seeds from a reputable breeder. If they are expensive wait until there is a sale.

Cannabis Seed Banks
OUR TOP PICKS
I Love Growing Marijuana is an cannabis seed bank and blog. Like Reefertilizer, ILGM.com has the goal of getting more people growing their own high quality cannabis at home. They are based out of California and only ship within the USA.
They provides plenty of growing guidance on their blog and have a handy Grow Bible you can download for free.
These guys have been in the cannabis seed game since 2002. They were the first seedbank to sell autoflowering and CBD genetics.
Based in Europe but they ship worldwide without a problem and offer insurance if your package goes missing.
They carry some of the best know breeders in the world including Dutch Passion, Barney’s Farm, and Humboldt.
These guys are USA only so you’re out of luck if you live anywhere else. They are based in California, do their own breeding, and have excellent reviews.
They also provide amazing support and plenty of cannabis growing guidance.
Another amazing thing is their germination guarantee. If your seeds don’t sprout they will replace them without a fuss. This is huge when seeds are $10 a pop. I am unaware of any other seedbank that offers this.
These guys have been a staple product in head shops around Canada for many years. They have a reputation for not having the most stable genetics and customers who received photoperiod plants when they ordered autoflower seeds. They’ve been around for years so they must be doing something right.
They do the more common cultivars very well. Things like white widow, green crack, and Northern Lights are great. I would be a little wary of more exotic cultivars from this seed bank. They ship to Canada and the USA.
