bc buddepot

Selection: (Plenty of choice? They have quite a few, I've only used them thus far for feminized seeds + marks out of 10(I'm a newbie, don't think it's fair to rate them)
Price: (Good value for money? for 10 feminized seeds I believe it was $125.00 canadian + ?/10)
Service: (Excellent. Problem with first order (I didn't get them), they sent another set out FREE) Took about 4-5 weeks for first order, 3 for second order. + marks 7/10 (they have points for ordering, but you have order A LOT (for me probably close to three or four years before I can benefit) before you receive anything)
Stealth Rating:They were discrete, marks out of 10/10)
Would you order from the same bank again: Yes
Other Comments: As a newbie I'll be ordering from another seedbank next time so that I can compare. I ordered feminized seeds. The 6 that I planted germinated (three after a nine months of cool, dry, dark storage)

I would do the online part and send an M.O. were it me. Calling wouldn't be a bad idea if you want to use a credit card.

Has anyone (else) tried growhigh.uk or headsite.com ??
headsite seems to have good prices and a fairly nice selection..just wondering if anyone else (true yahookan or anyone from the states) has ordered from either of these seedbanks?

Vancouver Seed Bank Review

Here is my review of the Vancouver Seed Bank. Short summary: thumbs up!

Selection: 7 - They have a pretty good selection of canadian genetics, but nothing from across the pond. The genetics cover a pretty wide range of types of weed, but there may be some of you looking for 'brand name' stuff that is of course Dutch. I've got nothing against Canadain genetics tho, and you can find the canadian versions of haze, big bud, northern lights, and almost all your other favorites.

Price: 7.5 - Price is alright, you can find cheaper seeds in Vancouver if you look around, but I'd say they are pretty average or just a little high. Of course we're talking Canadaian genetics prices not Amsterdam prices, so most strains are somewhere in the $50-150 range rather than the $150-300 range for Amsterdam prices.

Service: 9 - The folks I talked to were very friendly and helpful. I got talked out of buying some Northern Lights in favor of some Lemon Skunk, which was better suited to my growing space and gave a more cerebral high, which is what I was wanting. I've grown this strain twice now and have been very pleased with it. The folks there were very laid back and open to discussing the pro's and con's of various strains that they sold.

Stealth Rating: N/A - It's a store front, they say that they sell cannabis seeds on the front door. Not very stealthy, but then again that's not what they're going for, so this doesn't apply.

Would you order from the same bank again: Yes - I'm hoping to get up there soon to get a couple more strains now that I have a little experience and feel up to a little more advanced/challenging grow.

Other Comments: If you are in the area visiting, you ought to swing by. The fact that they exist is a good thing, and if we can help keep them going, that will be good for everyone in the long run.

Next time I'm up there I may hit urbanorganix too, just wondering if anyone's been there before and if they had any problems. I don't get up to Vancouver very often, and when I do I don't have much time, so I'm kind of curious about all the variety shops I saw up there selling pipes and such. Would those places carry seeds too, or is that only at the seed banks??

cool site that help compare prices

This is a new site that compares prices in a lot of different internet stores.
It is called Cannabis Seeds Online and it is really cool comparison engine for cannabis seeds with hundreds of seeds info.

It is not a shop.

I have used it to find seeds and it directed me to good prices in good stores.
Really recommended

p.s- It also has a black list on the bottom of the page for scams and cheaters

Would you order from the same bank again: yeah, I probably will.

Edit - Should be noted that one of my Sour seeds were busted, no biggie.
update...

he's selling misrepresented genetics. STAY AWAY FROM HIS CHEMDAWG! DO NOT BUY!

marijuana seeds.nl

These guys.....shipment never made it. You're paying not only for seeds but for it to be delivered to you. These guys can't pull it off.
Stealth 0
Impossible to rate them on anything else when your shipment comes opened and restapled with a little note from homeland security.
