Cannabis Seeds for Sale in the USA
The scope of cannabis reform in the USA over recent years has been astounding, with 18 states plus Washington DC having legalized adult marijuana use and the majority of states allowing its consumption for medical purposes. However, the availability of cannabis seeds for sale in the USA is lagging behind the changes, so American growers still order them online and have them shipped from overseas.

A Beginner’s Guide to Buying Marijuana Seeds in the US
An almost unlimited choice of marijuana seeds for sale in the USA is a godsend for growers with experience, but it may seem bewildering to first-timers. For them, we have compiled this primer, which will facilitate an informed choice of the perfect cultivar and smoke.
Marijuana Seed Types
Classifying marijuana strains into three major types – Indica, Sativa, and hybrids – is hardly more than a useful convention but does its job. Namely, it tells you what to expect in terms of growth patterns and effects.
Cannabis Indica is short, stocky, and fast-flowering. This type of weed has compact and dense buds, is tolerant of cool temperatures, and is better suited for cool climates. Indica’s nighttime type of smoke produces a body stone – a heavy-handed and buzzy relaxation of every muscle – that creates a feeling of euphoria and often leads to what smokers call ‘couch-lock’. Medicinally, Indicas are great for treating pain, muscle spasms, and other ailments of the body, as well as sleep disorders.
Cannabis Sativa grows tall, with long internodes, thin leaves, and an open bush structure. Its buds can be fatter but are airier and take longer to mature. Sativa smoke creates an uplifting effect in the head, provides focus, energy, and motivation, raises the mood, and makes your creative juices flow. For medical patients, Sativa is an effective treatment for depression, stress, and ADHD. This daytime smoke may also be helpful for other conditions, such as pain or lack of appetite, and provides relief without causing fatigue or killing motivation.
Sativa/Indica hybrids are usually created to temper Sativas’ hard-to-manage height with Indica genes, or to make the high of Indicas more interesting by extending the body stone with some cerebral effects of Sativa. Hybrids also usually make more vigorous cultivars.
When choosing weed seeds, also pay attention to such distinctions as:
- Feminized vs. regular. Feminized seeds only produce females, while regular ones grow into plants of both sexes.
- High-THC vs. high-CBD. In contrast to THC-rich varieties, strains with raised levels of CBD don’t make you high while providing their therapeutic effects.
- Autoflowering vs. photoperiod. Photoperiod strains are those that will only start to flower when the days and nights are of equal length (at 12/12 indoors or in fall outdoors). Autoflowers will finish their whole cycle in 2-3 months regardless of the light schedule or season.
How to Identify Quality Cannabis Seeds
When buying marijuana seeds at Herbies, you can be 100% confident that every seed bank in our catalog is a reliable source of top-shelf genetics. However, if you don’t know where your beans come from, you can use some visual clues to identify whether they are good and viable.
A good-quality cannabis seed should be mature. If it’s greenish or yellow, it means it was harvested too early. Mature seeds have a darker color and often spots and stripes. Seeds taken from upper buds tend to be bigger. They are also considered better quality. However, even a tiny seed, if it otherwise looks mature, is usually perfectly viable and can grow into a huge ‘tree’.
Different Strains of Marijuana
Choosing the right strain of marijuana for your garden (and your bowl) is so important because no two genetics are alike. We briefly touched upon some of the differences when we talked about marijuana types. However, besides belonging to a certain type, every weed strain has its own unique features.
It’s not only the specific growth and flowering patterns, the level of THC, or the terpene profile (that gives a strain its one-of-a-kind smell and taste). It’s also many other subtle differences, and although we often don’t know where they come from, they are real and will contribute to your experience with this or that strain. So, by all means, read the descriptions carefully and the right strain will be sure to ‘call’ you.
When looking for weed seeds for sale in the USA, you’re probably bracing yourself for a certain amount of headwind, but your worries are unfounded – today’s market is extremely accommodating, and this includes payment options.
You can go for a bit of anonymity and purchase cannabis seeds using Bitcoin, or you may choose such convenient payment methods as credit and debit cards. Thanks to secure protocols, your personal data and card info are fully protected. And if for some reason using a bank card is impossible for you, you can pay us via bank transfer and get your order shipped to the USA as soon as we receive payment.
The Legality of Purchasing Cannabis Seeds Online
Although you’ll never hear any PAs to this effect, cannabis seeds have been legal in the US since 2018. A law passed that year (called Farm Bill) made hemp, the non-psychoactive form of cannabis, legal in the country. By extension, it made hemp seeds legal as well. And since there’s no biological difference between seeds that grow into hemp and those that grow into marijuana, you won’t get in trouble with the law for purchasing or possessing them. The DEA has recently confirmed this.
Nonetheless, please bear in mind that seed shops, including Herbies, don’t hold themselves accountable for what you do with your purchase. We sell cannabis seeds as collectibles and souvenirs only. Some states allow the cultivation of psychoactive marijuana while others don’t. Please check your local laws or try to find your state in the list below and read about all the DOs and DON’Ts of weed cultivation:
The Most Popular Strains in the USA
Our customers from the US seem to favor photoperiod varieties over autoflowers and prefer American genetics – those that occupy the top shelves of dispensaries in legal states. Below are just a few examples of the most popular strains among our USA clients.
Gorilla Glue #4
Synonymous with sticky icky dank, Gorilla Glue #4 is the main contender for the title of the most resinous strain ever. Her buds are so frosty for a reason – they contain insane levels of THC (up to 28%) and other cannabinoids, and they ooze the juiciest terpenes in the industry. The pungent aroma of citrus fruit transforms into a blend of chocolate and coffee on your palate, ushering in a high that will melt your mind and body into something blissfully amorphous.
Grandmommy Purple is an undisputed potency champion. With up to 33% THC, she takes no prisoners, and the tolerance you’ve proudly cultivated for years will cry in shame or have a nervous breakdown. But don’t be alarmed, as there’s nothing threatening about this silky-smooth sweet smoke. It’s like your granny lulling you to sleep – you’ll just walk off into dreamland before the story is even over.
Lemon AK Auto
A cross between a juicy lemony Skunk with an AK-47 pheno famous for her cerebral and uplifting qualities, Lemon AK Auto is an amazingly fast and easy-to-grow autoflowering cultivar. Before you know it, you’ll have your jars full of delicious citrusy goodness that you can smoke day in and day out and stay full of energy and good mood, equally ready to work hard or party hard and filled to the brim either way with jittery happiness and creativity.
Bruce Banner #3
Notice the number in the name Bruce Banner #3? It means that from a whole lineup of Bruces, the breeder selected an exceptional plant, head and shoulders above the rest, and used it to produce these Sativa-dominant, 28%-THC-fueled, gassy and earthy-smelling seeds. They grow into plants with enormous yield potential and larger-than-life euphoric effects.
If you fondly remember that one-time crazy trip to Mexico with your best buddies, you’ll love the sun-drenched, loud, upbeat effect of Acapulco Gold. This pure landrace Sativa of Mexican origin also boasts a truly exotic kaleidoscopic flavor of earth, lemon, wood, tropical fruit, spice, cream, and coffee. Moreover, she’s a more than a generous plant, both indoors and out. Just don’t try and plant her too far north from her sunny homeland.
