BEST SEED BANKS THAT SHIP TO THE USA

It doesn’t matter how much experience you have or if you have the latest grow systems with the best nutrients on the planet; if you do not start with good genetics you’re not going to end up with a good product. When growing cannabis, a strain’s genetics are probably the most important factors in having a successful outcome.

When growing, genetics will significantly contribute to determining a plant’s size, smell, taste, yield, and overall cannabinoid and terpene content. The reliability of your strain’s genetics will influence how it turns out. Stable genetics produce predictable features passed down from the parent strains.

Knowing which strain to grow and where to get them can be a daunting task if you are new to cannabis. Even veterans in the industry are introduced to newly developed genetics, characteristics and strains of cannabis every day.

CRITERIA

We have reviewed most if not all the major Seed Banks to buy cannabis seeds online and are listing our reviews on all the Seed Banks that ship to customers in the USA.

Our goal was to analyze the caliber of the numerous Seed Banks and seed types (without influence) based on several factors including.

1.REPUTATION/RATINGS
2. CUSTOMER SERVICE
3. SEEDS – VARIETIES/QUALITY
4. GERMINATION GUARANTEE
5. EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION
6. PRICES/VALUE
7. SHIPPING POLICIES
8. PAYMENT OPTIONS

As our platform grows, we will add more reviews (both good and bad) on companies and products and as always do so unbiased (we will be donating all affiliate profits to the charity SAVE THE CHILDREN (honestly, we don’t need the money).

CRITERIA EXPLAINED

As with any company or industry the caliber of the operation and their products can vary widely. There were several things we looked for in the seed banks we evaluated but none of these can 100% guarantee that you’ll have a successful outcome; BUT we believe they will significantly increase your chances. To adequately analyze and judge as many important factors fairly (and without bias) we have researched and evaluated seed sellers based on consistent norms applied equally to each sector.

They are as follows;

1. REPUTATION/RATINGS

The REPUTATION and RATINGS of a company isn’t just a simple average of all reviews. It’s based on multiple factors like the age and number of reviews and whether or not a business actively asks customers to write reviews.
Our analysis is based on an overall measurement of reviewer satisfaction, based on all the Services and product reviews a business receives utilizing independent companies,

● TRUSTPILOT
● GOOGLE REVIEWS

One of the things we looked at as well was how long the seed bank has been in business. Not every new company is not to be trusted of course, but the ones that have been around for years have likely been successful because they are reputable.

Scoring scale 0 to 10.

2. CUSTOMER SERVICE

All companies profess to have great customer service but reality shows that’s not always the case with some companies being significantly better than others. What do the reviews say? How do they respond to customers’ questions and complaints? Things we reviewed in determining the grade of a company’s customer service are based on the following;

● FAQs
When a company is repeatedly asked and answering the same questions, a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section is a useful and an easy way to add unique, relevant content and assist confused customers in the middle of their purchase journey.

● Onsite help – Live Chat
On-site live chats are another great customer service tool top seed banks use to help new and existing customers by offering real-time assistance to customers.

● EMAIL
Email is a great way for customers to know they will be getting an answer to their question, especially when faced with closed live chats outside of working hours. We also believe the speed to your response and adequate resolution to your question or complaint is a clear indicator of a company’s credibility in general.

● PHONE NUMBER
One of the most important things we looked at when giving a company a top customer service rating was……..DO THEY GIVE OUT AND ALLOW CUSTOMERS TO CALL THEM?!

In today’s impersonal world, we were surprised that very few companies actually provide customers a way of contacting them directly AND IN PERSON.

Scoring scale 0 to 10.

3. SEEDS –

VARIETIES/QUALITY
In evaluating a company’s VARIETY and/or QUALITY of seeds we decided to combine both attributes into one category.

We found several very good seed sellers offering thousands of strains from many reputable seed banks (nothing like one stop shopping). But we also found numerous seed banks advertising the “large quantity” of seeds they offer, sometimes in the thousands but when we looked deeper into their inventory, we found many strains where “NOT IN STOCK”. (Not good)

We also found that the number of strains many times was not as important as the quality of the seed.

Many smaller seed banks, ones that carried 60 to 70 strains had excellent reviews and carried the most popular strains. We believe their smaller size allows them to focus on better quality control in focusing on the grade of the genetics and repeating the process. Nothing worse than spending 6 to 8 weeks vegging and another 8 to 10 weeks flowering only to find out the resulting plant is A DUD.

Scoring scale 0 to 10.

4. GERMINATION GUARANTEE

Did you know if seed sellers purchase their seeds from seed manufacturers months or years prior to selling them or they were not stored correctly, the seeds may no longer be viable and may not germinate?

A company that offers a seed guarantee gives another level of confidence that the seed seller and their products are reputable.

No seed guarantee Plus 0. Germination Guarantee Plus 5.

5. EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION

“Don’t Market to Your Customers; Educate Them Instead” – Forbes Magazine

As the cannabis market expands and regulations in the United States change many “NEW GROWERS” are emerging every day.

One interesting thing we found when analyzing companies is that those that took the time to offer greater amounts of educational information were also the ones that scored higher in RATINGS, PRICES and CUSTOMER SERVICE. Not surprising.

None too little information Plus 0. Educational information given Plus 5.

6. PRICES/VALUE

VALUE is something that combines the quality of a product relative to its price. That was also our objective in finding the best seed sellers; finding the ones with the best VALUE.

We believe that it’s sometimes ok to purchase and pay slightly more for high quality seeds. Unfortunately, some unsuspecting buyers are paying high prices for inferior products and our research saw several seed sellers with extremely high prices with fair to poor reviews.

In order to evaluate and put a VALUE in this category we picked 4 popular strains,

● Girl Scout Cookies Feminized
● Zkittlez Feminized
● GG Autoflower
● Big Bud Autoflower

If a seed strain was unavailable, we picked a similar strain for analysis. In the event the price was significantly high or low we didn’t want to skew the averages so we supplemented another strain with a similar one to better provide a more accurate average price.

Scoring scale 0 to 10.

7. SHIPPING POLICIES

If you are ordering seeds from the United States, do you really want to wait 28 days to get them considering other seed banks can get them to you in 2 to 4 days……FOR FREE?

We addressed shipping in these areas;

●Free Shipping? If not, what are the charges for customers in the USA?

● Was Stealth Shipping provided?

● Was tracking information provided?

● What was the delivery time frame to customers in the USA?

Scoring scale 0 to 10.

8.PAYMENT OPTIONS

Payment options vary widely from company to company, but the more options a company offers, the better their rating.

● Are Credit card Payments offered to customers in the USA?

● Do they accept Crypto payments?

● Do they allow a customer to pay by E-checks or Bank transfers?

● Do they accept cash by mail?

● Do they take checks or money orders by mail?

Scoring scale 0 to 10.

Score Rating
9 – 10 Excellent
8 – 9 Very Good
7 – 8 GOOD
6 – 7 Fair
6 and below – Poor
