is it illegal to send seeds in the mail

My understanding is that because the seeds themselves do not contain THC, they are technically legal to mail. The seed labeling is always marked something like “birdseed” or “for novelty only, do not germinate” or “for collection/preservation only, do not germinate where illegal to do so”.

Beside above, can you mail seeds to another country?

Can you send plants through the mail?

Because most countries have regulations to protect against agricultural pests and diseases as well as invasive species, you will probably need both a phytosanitary certificate and an import permit to take or send your seeds to another country.

One may also ask, how do you mail seeds? Small seeds such as tomato and pepper seeds to some extent can be sent in a plain envelope with something like a thick paper towel for padding. If there is more than one packet they need to be taped down so that they can’t get on top on each other.

They also offer a germination guarantee, so you get new seeds if yours don’t germinate. This bank is based in the Netherlands, but they also have a warehouse in California. That means shipping is a lot faster to the US than most other stores. The also have excellent customer service.

Obviously the legality of mailing marijuana seeds varies from one location to the next. We can’t cover every country, much less every region in every country, in the world, so we’ll focus on those countries where the majority of our readers reside. And number one, by far, is the United States


If you are simply trying to send seeds to a friend, or have a friend send some to you, you’re going to have to do a bit of research.

Most people asking if it is illegal to send seeds in the mail are talking about cannabis seeds.

As a result, pot seeds are legal in some jurisdictions where growing or smoking weed is illegal. As long as you do not plant the seeds, you are fine.

That’s true? I`m thinking about legal problems or the overall cost. Is there a reason for the paranoia? “Transport of agricultural products through state lines”? Or can they just pass my address information to the local police?

Yes, they are better, a night mailing if you want to guarantee. USPS is the least to look inside packages from all the large shippers, according to the word in the street, because they are government but it is just a rumor. Although they don`t have the best rates at night so I use them every time.

There are still way too many cases of people being in prison for the possession of cannabis in the United States of America. Not everyone has gotten the message that the Reefer Madness is just that.



I confess that I can be too dramatic here. But I do not see myself being in prison when I see the contents of my luggage being examined by people with badges in the TSA.

An acquaintance of mine sent me marijuana seeds in CD or DVD boxes, it worked very well.

I stay half a year in a State where marijuana is legal and the other half in a State where it is illegal. If I cannot find any way to transport my seeds, they have to be abandoned when I take a plane across the Pacific. To bring them across TSA is not possible. Therefore, the question remains, if they can be mailed without any trouble? Please supply the answer if you have the information.
