This is a question lurking in the minds of many seed-buyers and the ‘cannabis curious.’ Theoretically speaking, selling and buying cannabis seeds is not illegal. However, because cannabis seeds are related to cannabis, there is going to be some murky grey areas when it gets to real life situations. Let’s take a look at what really happens if your seeds get stopped by customs.
So, we all know that the topic of cannabis’s legal status is more than just a little controversial. But, let’s put away our opinions for now and take a look at what the UK law actually says:
Currently, cannabis seeds are legal to possess. They are also legal to trade, meaning that it is legal to buy and sell cannabis seeds. Before you get too excited, there is something that you should know with regards to this legality. It is not legal to germinate, grow, or cultivate those seeds in any way. Therefore, the grey area is born.
Now, if seeds are legal to have, shouldn’t they be permitted at customs? Not necessarily. Customs can stop seeds if they suspect that there is an intent to germinate, cultivate and then sell the cannabis plant. And if this intent to grow and then sell is proven, then harsh penalties can follow suit.
Have your Seeds been Stopped at Customs?
If you have had your seeds stopped at customs, then you should expect a ‘friendly’ letter to arrive in the mail. It could come with the empty package in place of where your seeds used to be, or it could arrive without the original packaging altogether. Either way, further action usually does not follow this letter. The letter will usual detail that the seeds have been confiscated, but no further action is generally taken. In non-EU countries, there are some cases where you may be in deeper trouble, and you may have to be taken in for an interview for further investigations.

Some Sage Words of Advice for Possessing Seeds
Remember, possessing cannabis seeds may be legal, but the moment the seeds becomes a plant, you could be in trouble. It is illegal to germinate, cultivate, possess and sell cannabis in the UK. But yes, purchasing the cannabis seeds is legal. The reasons could be the following:
- Collector's items
- Bird food
- fish bait
- anything else that can be passed off as general interest
It will, therefore, be difficult for customs and law enforcement to determine whether or not you have the intent to use the seeds for growing, possessing and using cannabis. However, this doesn’t mean that seeds are never seized.
