PLEASE NOTE: Our stealthy packaging options do involve removing your seeds from their original breeder packaging. If you so wish, we can send images of your seeds before & after they are repackaged. Alternatively, we can forward on the original breeder packaging from your seeds – we will send it to you in another package. If you would like to request an image of your packing or to have the original breeder packaging forwarded to you, please let us know in the Customer’s Comments box when you make your order.

Packaging Information

Want to know how your cannabis seeds will be shipped and delivered? What will they look like when they arrive?

Don’t worry, here we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to our fantastic cannabis seed delivery methods! Find out everything you need to know…

First of all, whichever delivery method you select for your cannabis seeds, you can expect your package to arrive looking a lot like this from the outside:

Any package travelling outside the UK will have a small blue airmail sticker (like the one in the top left). Packages to the EU will show a return address on the back of the envelope. Non-EU packages will show a return address on the front of the package (top left) along with a Customs Label attached too.

For packages posted via UK Signed For, you will see a UK Signed For sticker attached. Similarly, when sent via International Signed For, you will see a Royal Mail International Signed For sticker attached to the package.

Below is an example of what a World Signed For Delivery package sent outside of the EU will look like when it arrives:

When Seleting the Standard 8 GBP Signed For Delivery method, your seeds will be concealed within a high quality (Amaray) DVD Case. See photo below.

When selecting our Extra Stealth Method, we will re-package your seeds into crush-proof black tubes. These tubes will then be concealed within small black bags which themselves are concealed within the building block package. See photo below…

For extra stealth and speed, we also offer Courier Stealth Delivery. This option is only available as a Building Block Toy Stealth Delivery (selected for its extra security, as the package will be inspected during collection). Our Courier Stealth Delivery method is more expensive, but arrives between only 2 – 4 days from the despatch date.

PLEASE NOTE: Our stealthy packaging options do involve removing your seeds from their original breeder packaging. If you so wish, we can send images of your seeds before & after they are repackaged.

Cannabis seed packaging
Worldwide, hundreds of marijuana seed banks struggle to position their varieties in the pots of weed growers. But before the gift, there is the wrapping; and to differentiate each other from their competitors, it is paramount for them to apply, as their introduction card, the concept of packaging; that is, the art of protecting and differentiating their products, for their distribution, shipping and storage.

By their package you shall know them: seed banks according to their packaging

Worldwide, hundreds of marijuana seed banks struggle to position their varieties in the pots of weed growers. But before the gift, there is the wrapping; and to differentiate each other from their competitors, it is paramount for them to apply, as their introduction card, the concept of packaging; that is, the art of protecting and differentiating their products, for their distribution, shipping and storage.

From the beginning of this business, when seeds were practically sent in a stamped envelope, to these days, when banks may even give music CD’s as a gift along with their seeds, this essential branding element has significantly evolved. Today, we bring you some of the most curious or remarkable examples in our warehouses.

Who are they? Strain Hunters , by Green House Seed Co, a bank launched in 2013, gathering a collection of seeds with a certainly exotic spirit. This bank is also a cannabis genetics library, with data collected during the Strain Hunters Expeditions, some sort of pioneer expeditions around the world to “preserve and protect local varieties for future generations”.

What is their packaging like? In this case, the seed container resembles the shape and distribution of a CD case. It does contain a DVD with videos of the different expeditions of these variety hunters, always in search of the most exotic one.

Who are they? Elite Seeds is a Spanish bank which does research with innovative techniques such as in vitro culture. It works with multiple combinations of substances in order to cause sex reversion in cannabis, thus obtaining seeds coming from crosses that, as a result, produce healthy and disease-free plants.

What is their packaging like? A bullet-shaped keychain, which is dispensed in boxes similar to those of eye drops. The seeds come in their plastic pod, which in its turn comes inside a screw top metal capsule with the shape of a bullet. This format is also useful to keep certain amounts of hash, grass or extraction.

Who are they? Humboldt Seeds Organization owes its name to the most traditional marijuana production area in the United States. Located in California, a group of cultivators work on the production of high-quality organic marijuana by using clones from the best strains, to supply dispensaries.

What is their packaging like? Wood. Their green, sustainable-economy philosophy includes respect and integration with the environment, so their seed packaging follows the same principles and is presented in a small micro-chiselled wooden box with a stamped sheath containing the seeds. A beautiful way to close the plant circle.

Who are they? Medical Seeds is a Spanish seed bank founded in 2008 after a long genetic selection process of plants coming from Holland and Canada. They have already created their own crosses based on the selected plants. The bank currently has 12 seed varieties, very appreciated among medical consumers for their narcotic and relaxing effect.

What is their packaging like? Medicine-like packages. One of the most successful formats considering its target, with a front side similar to that of an antibiotic and a reverse which shows all the information on the cultivation (weather, production, height…). It also displays the legal counter-indications of this type of seeds and their marketing. All comprised in a lovely packaging which stands out for its originality.

Who are they? The Soma Seeds bank was founded in Amsterdam by an old Rastafarian, Soma, who has been experimenting for 40 years following a traditional method, respectful with the environment. He makes his own clothes, smokes like a chimney and has studied all aspects of marijuana “as a tool that may save humanity from its own destruction”. No more, no less.

What is their packaging like? Rolling paper packs. Of course, a stoner of such astral dimensions could only give its packaging the shape of something he knows very well. To complete the riddle, the package carries a real rolling paper pack and some cut cardboard for gauzy filter tips.

Who are they? CBD Crew is a joint venture between Mr. Nice Seedbank and Resin Seeds aimed at producing 100% of their CBD-rich seeds for medical marijuana patients. Their objective is to obtain an optimal THC-CDB 1:1 ratio, something they have already achieved in most of the varieties they market.

What is their packaging like? Condom or wet towels pack. Shiny on both sides, so is the packaging chosen by Howard Marks (Mr. Nice) himself, in collaboration with Jaime (Resin Seeds) and Scott Blakey (from Shantibaba). A packaging that reminds us of man’s best friend in the trenches of seduction. A chromatic marvel which can be opened with our teeth, in one breath.

Who are they? Big Buddha Seed is a synonym for Cheese, the variety with which they won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2006 for the “best Indica”. Since then, their cross-genetics has allowed this British firm to offer up to 16 types of feminized cannabis seed, including 3 auto-flowering varieties.

What is their packaging like? Cardboard, plastic and a lot of humour, their motto being a funny Buda in the strangest positions, while playing with the variety name. In this case, Cheesus, in honour of Christ the Redeemer, who has even been stapled to the cross. But they also have some futurist ones where the Buda is the impersonator of “I, Robot” itself.

Who are they? Cannabiogen is a bank from Madrid, which, as they define themselves “is dedicated in heart and soul to the preservation and study of this wonderful plant”. Their objective is to improve the lack of genetic diversity and stop the inbreeding depression suffered by many commercial varieties nowadays.

What is their packaging like? A box like those used for earphones on the trains; or for earplugs. One of the neatest designs on the market, it displays a successful combination of colours and typographies which demonstrate that Madrilenians have taken very seriously to reach the lungs of growers, at a silent but steady pace.

Who are they? After almost 20 years, Sagarmatha Seeds has already become a renowned seed bank, preferred by many growers. Like their AK-47 variety, one of the flagships of their arsenal, with possibly the highest THC rating of all the auto-flowering varieties they sell.

What is their packaging like? Bullet-proof plastic box, with a string to fix it to your keychain. Once devoid of the sacred chain, it can be used as a priceless compact case, to carry both depth charges and lighter extractions.

Who are they? Dinafem , the mother ship and a seed bank that internationally trades the best selection of its own varieties but also those of other banks. It is a synonym for stability and genetic quality. Since 2005, when it became the first bank of feminized cannabis seeds in Spain, its research on auto-flowering and feminized seeds has placed it at the forefront of seed sales worldwide.

What is their packaging like? The unique and incomparable metal can. A commitment to durability and discretion. The seeds are packaged and transported in Eppendorf microtubes, where seeds and silica gel are placed, separated by a polyurethane membrane. The gel acts as a humidity regulator, so that they can be delivered in optimal conditions for the germination of a real champion plant.

This article would have not been possible without the generous collaboration of “the seed guardians” from Dinafem. Thank you ladies!
