[Updated 2021] Most of you are well aware you can own cannabis plant for your own consumption at home. But, this being said, you may not purchase or sell cannabis. So, the next port of call is learning to grow your own supply and purchasing some amazing marijuana seeds.
Let’s talk about the top South African Cannabis Seed Outlets!
AND before we go any further, most of these outlets sell:
– Autoflowering (they flower ASAP);
– Feminised (no guesswork about what gender it is);
– CBD (more hemp and little to no THC);
– Regular (if you’re not in the mood to play GROWING GOD!) May or may not flower;
– And Hybrids.
Cool, we promise we’re done now.
We’ve recently collaborated with the guys over at Biltong & Budz. They’re really lovely and donated a whack of seeds as prizes for the Zootly Cannabis Cup.
As one of the best local seed outlets they stock a huge variety. These include brands such as:
- Achieve Seed Bank
- Bean Drop Genetics
- Cannarado Genetics
- CBD Seeds
- Cult Classics
- And so much more!
Do us a favour and check out their stock!
They also offer bulk seeds as well as companion plants (we’ve written about these before), and of course, biltong spices.
We have a long history with President Seeds. They were the main sponsor for the Zootly Cannabis Cup in 2020. Since then they’ve been giving us the cold shoulder for allowing all seed strains…
Also, Trump being voted out of office… This being said they’ve added some more seeds to their range. These include:
- Simba Seeds
- Ethos Genetics
- And Dutch Passion
They do pride themselves on providing South Africans with the best that cannabis breeders in Holland and Spain, using American and European genetics can supply. A quality with a touch of humour.
We still love them, and only hope they’ll come back to us.
Selling seeds since 2009 the Green Smoke Room is the old guard of the industry. They offer a 48 hour delivery time on all their products – especially with the stock stored within the country.
Currently, they don’t have their own strain, but they have an extensive selection ranging from regular, autoflowering and feminized.
And they do have offer strains from across the globe.
We also need to mention they stock growing gear as well as smoking. But you know… rather look through our stuff then go over there… We’re not stopping you… You do you!
Fairly new to the game, this local seed bank has some amazing “breeders”. They really have a great tip on their website:
“Smoking Gun advises its customers to reassure themselves of local applicable laws and regulations before germination.
Smoking Gun cannot be held responsible for the actions of those who act against laws and regulations that apply in their locality.
Cannabis seeds should be kept as collectable souvenirs by anyone in an area where cultivation of cannabis is not legal.”
We like simple legal chat as much as good genetics in our seeds.
If you’ve ever scanned through the forums of 420sa.co.za you’ll know the name – as they deliver. While the digital platform might be a bit old, it doesn’t really matter as long as you get seeds with good genetics.
There are loads more of these sites popping up, and we’re sure we’ve missed a few gems. Just mention them in the comments, and let’s get started on seed providers.
