bringing seeds back from amsterdam to us

If you go to a seed bank with a specific name in mind, there’s a good chance they’ll sell those exact seeds so you can theoretically grow the exact same stuff yourself. If you buy online it’s anyone’s guess what you’ll be getting, though the better sites do sell the same seeds so if you know the name already you are set.

The Sensi Seed Bank of Amsterdam is one of the oldest and most famous banks in the city. They have two locations and have been in business for over 20 years. Furthermore, they are owned by the same people who run the Cannabis Museum and the Cannabis College nearby.

I’ve never done it, so I have no experience myself, but I’d imagine that the more reputable seed banks must have a pretty good system of getting these things to their customers, or they’d be out of business in a hurry, or at least they’d refuse to even try a shipment.

Cannabis, both in marijuana and hash form, almost always has a colorful name attached to each individual strain. The best and most scientific minds in the business are constantly coming up with new strains that contain more THC or flower in different colors or taste like something else familiar, so the varieties to choose from can seem infinite. When you are in one of the Amsterdam coffee shops you can test several of them to find the one you like best, both in flavor and the type of high you get.

If you are into this as a hobby you should absolutely go into the Cannabis Museum and speak to the people in there to get great tips on all this stuff, and then go next door to the Sensi Seed Bank shop to do your purchasing.

Most of the plants are best shipped bare roots. . You can also wrap the top of the plant stems to avoid breakage. For shipping succulents and cacti make sure that they are not water recently before pulling them out. Semi-dry soil is better for shipping them.

Contradictory Dutch regulations have created what’s known as a “backdoor” policy: cannabis production is illegal, but Dutch coffee shops are allowed to sell it. Even though that’s technically a criminal offence, the sale of small quantities is “tolerated”.

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.

What vegetables can cross the border?

Fresh fruits and vegetables are nonmailable unless presented in a dry (not dried) condition. Other perishable foods that are capable of easily decomposing or that cannot reach their destination without spoiling are nonmailable. Packaging must be strong and securely sealed as required in DMM 601.

It’s not illegal to mail seeds WITHIN the US. But when going “global”, like outside the US, it can be illegal. If it isn’t illegal, you will still have to fill out a Customs form.

100% ok to bring seeds back mate. Seeds aren’t illegal at all, it’s what you do with them 😉 Absolutely fine – they are legal souvenirs until germinated.

Here in the Netherlands, we measure the yield of a marijuana plant by per sq meter. So if you have 1 plant per sq meter it will yield the same as 2 plants in that same sq meter as space and light will have to be shared. The yield stated on the website is the max documented weight of the buds collected after being harvested per sq meter. The yields stated on the website are actual results after vigorous testing of the strain before being sold commercially.
You will also read that it states “up to X grams” meaning that is the max you can expect. It does not mean that it is the average you can expect.
Yield results, of course may vary, however, the yields posted are based on the results of our growers. There is a multitude of factors that will determine the overall yield of a plant.
