How fresh are your seeds?

We have an excellent quality control system in place to ensure that we only sell seeds of the highest quality.

We go through a lot of seeds and with that large turnover our stock is replenished often, so you can rest assured our seeds are extremely fresh and viable!

All of our inventory is also checked regularly to ensure our seeds remain above an 80-90% germinate rate.

How long can cannabis seeds be stored for?

Germination rates will naturally decline over time, so if you want to prolong the shelf life of your seeds then store them in the fridge.

Seeds stored in the fridge can last up to a decade, while seeds stored at room temperature will have a much shorter lifespan.

My seeds didn't germinate - what should I do?

If you experience an issue with germination, please contact us and we will endeavour to resolve the issue.


When contacting us, please make sure to provide your order number and the specific seed strain that you had issues with.

We will also require the following information:

  • Please provide an explanation of the germination technique and materials that were used to germinate your seeds.
  • Please include pictures of the ungerminated seeds whenever possible.

Any reported issues will be reviewed on a case by case basis and we cannot guarantee you will receive free replacement seeds.

** We can only assist with germination issues reported within 90 days of the original order being placed.

Should i soak my seeds in water?

We don’t recommend soaking your your seeds in water as every strain reacts differently, and soaking in water too long can encourage the wrong type of taproot to form.

Then, when you place it in soil or rockwool, the water roots that formed can go through stress as they adjust to the new growing medium.

Please refer to this FAQ article for the best way to germinate seeds.

The description below the video outlines the steps we would recommend to optimize germination rates.

What is the best way to Germinate Cannabis Seeds?

Here is a great tutorial that outlines the steps we would recommend to optimize germination rates.

**** IMPORTANT:**The biggest mistake people make is soaking the paper towels with too much water.

Drain any excess water from the plates and try to keep the paper towel sheets “moist”, in a cool dry place.

It can take anywhere from 1 – 10 days for the taproots to appear so make sure to check it often to avoid the seeds drying out.

What is the best way to store cannabis seeds?

The best way to store seeds are in a cool and dry location – temperature and humidity fluctuations are seeds’ worst enemies.

If you want to store your seeds for longer than a year then the best way to store them is in the fridge.

Make sure to clearly label storage bags and jars at the time of storage with strain name, date and any other relevant information.
