Quickest ship Seeds to America ?
Who can get me seeds in the states under 3-4 weeks? I know "I love growing Marijuana.com can get them in 2 weeks, Looking for other options?
Solseeds and Neptuneseedbank are domestic. You have to send a money order to Solseeds though. If you want auto's just go to mephistogenetics.com, they ship quickly (from Colorado) and hook it up with a bunch of freebies.
Seedsman is great, but you have to pay in bitcoin. If you’ve got $$$ to spend, check out speakeasy seedbank.
Royal queen seeds is good
took about 9 days to get my seeds. less than 1 month ago.
attitude has a nice selection
Why not just purchase seeds from a US seedbank?
Which ones are reputable ?
James Bean Company, Great Lakes Genetics, Lumberjack Seeds, several others. There are great seed companies in the US, who ship Priority. You could order tonight and (probably) have seeds by Saturday.
Most deal with US breeders exclusively though. So few feminized/auto options.
People Are Calling Out The Ontario Cannabis Store For Selling Marijuana Seeds At High Prices
For Ontarians looking to legally grow their own marijuana, they will be happy to hear that the Ontario Cannabis Store now sells legal cannabis seeds. However, they might not be happy with the cost. Ontarians are now calling out the OCS for selling marijuana seeds for high prices.
The Ontario Cannabis Store only just recently started selling legal marijuana seeds for Canadians to grow. They only have two seed products currently available. The OCS is selling Tweed’s Argyle Seeds and Tweed’s Bakerstreet Seeds. According to their website, Argyle and Bakerstreet are Indica-dominant strains from Tweed and all the seeds are feminized.
These cannabis seeds do come at a cost. The OCS is selling the Argyle Seeds and the Bakerstreet Seeds for $60, and they come with four in each package. This means that each seed costs $15.
People have taken to Reddit to express their outrage at the costs of cannabis seeds sold at the OCS. Many people are saying that the weed seeds are much too costly.
The top comment on the Reddit thread about OCS’s marijuana seeds was from user Zahne1977, who wrote, “4 seeds for $60 plus shipping? Ok Ontario. Smoke another one”. Their comment got 28 points. Another top comment was by user A_Level_2, who commented, “60 bucks for 4 seeds dam that’s a lot. I’ll just use bagseed”.
According to the OCS website, Ontario law states that people are legally allowed to grow up to four plants in a home. The OCS says that they sell different types of weed seeds for this purpose.
Delta-8 THC Offers A Legal High, But Here’s Why The Booming Business May Soon Go Up In Smoke
E ight years ago, Jay Barrios sold $20,000 worth of Tesla stock to open a vape shop near Ft. Lauderdale. He quickly pivoted from slinging nicotine to CBD, the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis. At one point, he kicked himself after realizing he would’ve had a quarter of a million dollars if he just held onto his Tesla shares. But last year, his company No Cap Hemp Co hit pay dirt: he launched a Delta-8 THC brand that sells vaporizers, edibles and flower that give users a legal high, thanks to a legal loophole.
Legal High: The latest trend in the hemp industry is Delta-8 THC, a psychoactive cannabinoid that can be infused in edibles, turned into vaping oil and sprayed on hemp flowers.

Delta-8 THC is having a moment as it’s quickly become the most exciting, and most intoxicating, product in the hemp industry. A cousin compound to Delta-9 THC, the main ingredient in cannabis, Delta-8 is being sold across the country thanks to an exception in marijuana laws made by the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized cannabinoids derived from hemp. Barrios is part of a growing group of entrepreneurs getting rich while they can.
For now, Delta-8 products can be found seemingly everywhere outside of legal cannabis dispensaries: gas stations, head shops, bodegas. But it might not be for long. Lawyers in the cannabis industry warn that it’s a grey area that will likely change and hemp industry trade groups are against the sale of Delta-8.
“This is nerve-racking,” says Barrios, who is 33 years old. “We have lawyers working around the clock. Even then, I still lose sleep at night.”
Barrios might be losing sleep, but he’s making money. Sales at No Cap Hemp Co. have jump 200% every month for the last year and he says he’ll hit $10 million in sales by 2022. He sells his products in 38 states and is headquartered in Davie, Florida, where his business is permitted under the state’s hemp and food production laws. Despite Florida having a large, regulated medical marijuana market, Barrios, is all in on hemp.
“Hemp is the future, bro,” he says. “I see hemp and bitcoin side to side right now.”
The Delta-8 THC market might not be as hot as crypto, but there are signs that Delta-8 could take a bite out of other trends like CBD or nicotine vaping.
On a Saturday night inside Noble’s Smoke Shop down the shore in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, a man buys a package of Delta-8 edibles for his girlfriend and a moment later, a woman in her twenties grabs two pre-rolled hemp joints that have been dipped in Delta-8 oil and dusted with kief. The smoke shop is not a licensed dispensary, but the owner, Paul An, says the Farm Bill made all the products on his shelves legal.
“Delta-8 products sell better than Juul,” An says, referring to the nicotine vaporizer that became popular with teens and young adults.
How High: Delta-8 THC gives users a mellower high than Delta-9 THC, the main compound in marijuana.
Jonathan Miller, a lawyer for the U.S. Hemp Roundtable and the U.S. Hemp Authority, says the trade groups will be speaking with the Food and Drug Administration and the Drug Enforcement Administration about the differences between CBD and Delta-8. He realizes that companies selling Delta-8 online and through convenience stores are adhering to the Farm Bill as written, but he views it as a loophole.
“We’re alarmed by the rise of products marketing themselves as hemp and as intoxicating,” says Miller. “These products might be legal right now, but we believe they go against the spirit of the law.”
Despite following the exact language of the Farm Bill, Barrios says about $10,000 to $50,000 worth of product gets turned over to law enforcement each month. A package will break open in transit and FedEx or UPS will turn over what looks like weed to the local cops.
Josh Manning, who runs Snap Dragon Hemp, a hemp grower and processor licensed by the state of Tennessee, says Delta-8 has been a game-changer for his Chattanooga-based business. Last year, Delta-8 was 20% of his sales and he brought in about $60,000 a month. Now Delta-8 makes up 80% of his sales and he makes more than $200,000 a month.
Before opening his storefront in downtown Chattanooga, Manning invited the local police to come by and test his hemp so they could see how he’s abiding by the state’s laws. “I told them: ‘It’s going to smell like the real thing, it’s going to look like the real thing, but we won’t push the THC limits,” he says.
Manning believes his company is compliant but says there are bad actors flaunting the rules. “Regulations are likely to come down—there are too many gas stations selling it,” says Manning.
America’s Most Blunted: Most Delta-8 flower products are hemp nugs that have been either dipped in Delta-8 oil or sprayed with a Delta-8 isolate.
COURTESY OF NO CAP HEMP CO
First, members of Congress passed the bill with the idea that hemp products were benign and non-intoxicating, Delta-8 is intoxicating.
The second issue is that Delta-8 is included in the DEA’s list of controlled substances along with Delta-9.
And the third issue, which might create the greatest argument against hemp-derived Delta-8, is that the compound doesn’t appear in hemp with enough volume to extract and use. Delta-8 products are made synthetically from CBD that had been extracted from hemp and put through an isolation and distillation process. That synthesis, Garrett Graff, a lawyer and managing partner at cannabis-focused Hoban Law Group, creates a “complicated, legal mine field.” Graff also says that the intent around a product—is it meant to get a user high or ease pain, also presents an “unresolved, ambiguous portion of the law.”
Lifted Made, a Zion, Illinois-based Delta-8 company, is one of the largest companies in the hemp-derived cannabinoid industry and is known for its brand Urb. Nick Warrender, who founded the company in his parents’ house six years ago as a nicotine vape company, pivoted to Delta-8 almost two years ago. Lifted Made is traded over-the-counter, has a $50 million market cap and generated $4.1 million in revenue in 2019. It ships Delta-8 edibles, vapes and flower to most states in the U.S. and he’s confident that he follows the law exactly as written.
“The way [the federal government] defines THC is very specific. It’s not very grey. It’s black and white,” he says. “From a scientific standpoint, cannabis and hemp are the same plant, but under the law they are completely different things. It’s rather ridiculous.”
Warrender says Lifted Made only synthesizes Delta-8 from CBD derived from hemp, so he’s operating within the guidelines of the Farm Bill.
Others in the legal cannabis industry view entrepreneurs selling hemp-derived Delta-8 products outside of state licensed dispensaries as a ticking time bomb. Dennis Hunter, the cofounder of Santa Rosa, California-based cannabis company CannaCraft, knows how intense the government’s wrath can be. In 1998, the feds raided Hunter’s marijuana grow and he spent six years in prison.
“I think there are Delta-8 companies that have a good legal argument, but they might find themselves in court and shut down,” he says. “I don’t think the FDA and DEA believe they have a good argument.”
When ask what will happen to his business if Delta-8 is banned, Barrios says he’ll find a way to bring another legal cannabinoid to market.
“They can make Delta-8 illegal all they want. It’s not going to stop our industry,” Barrios says. “We’re going to keep innovating and coming out with legal forms of hemp. This helps people, bro. This isn’t for getting high.”
For now, Delta-8 companies not doing business in the regulated cannabis industry are walking a legal tight rope made from hemp. But Delta-8 is just the first minor cannabinoid to make a big splash.
“We’re also doing Delta-10, it’s like a super sativa,” Warrender says. “It blasts you rather nice.”
