With more than 190 million cannabis users worldwide, cannabis is the most popular drug in the world. From Amsterdam to Reykjavík and from New York to Cape Town – cannabis is used (and loved) all over the globe. However, the legality of this soft drug differs from country to country. While some countries criminalise the purchase, possession and use of cannabis and punish offenders, other states have decided to legalise or tolerate the drug. As the consequences of using cannabis can differ greatly from one country to another, it is important to make sure the use of cannabis is legal in your country.

In this article “Cannabis seeds South Africa“, we will provide you with all the necessary information about the legality of cannabis and cannabis seeds in South Africa. Are cannabis seeds legal in South Africa? Is it legal to smoke marijuana? Where can you buy cannabis seeds? Continue reading to find out!

The legality of marijuana in South Africa

Before 2017, the South African law prohibited all use of marijuana (locally also known as dagga). This meant that anyone who bought, sold or was in the possession of marijuana, committed a criminal offence and was punished accordingly. Luckily, the tables turned in 2017, when a judge in the High Court of Western Cape ruled that the ban on private use of marijuana constituted an infringement on the people’s constitutional right to privacy. One year later, this ruling was ratified by the highest court in the country, the Constitutional Court. From that moment onwards, the personal use of cannabis in the context of a private home was legalised.

The consequences of the Supreme Court ruling

The ruling of the Constitutional Court was met with large celebrations among the proponents of marijuana and sparked an enormous increase in the dagga business. However, the ruling of the Constitutional Court is more complex than it seems at first glance. We have set out the most important caveats of the judgment for you.

The allowed amount of cannabis

First of all, the judgment does not specify the amount of cannabis a person is allowed to possess and use: it only requires that the use of the cannabis is “personal” and that the cannabis is used “at home.” This implies that a person is allowed to possess as much cannabis as he wants, as long he stays within these boundaries. However, it is improbable that this was the intention of the Court. For this reason, further rules regarding the allowed amount of cannabis can be expected.

The purchase and sale of cannabis

Moreover, it is important to note that it is still a criminal offence to sell and purchase cannabis. This implies that you are only able to take advantage of the ruling of the Constitutional Court if you plant your own cannabis seeds. Green thumbs are thus essential for those interested in smoking weed. However, again, it is unclear how much marijuana one is allowed to grow and possess. It is therefore advisable to stick to a small amount and to keep an eye out for any new laws and/or rulings.

The importation of cannabis seeds in South Africa

The Constitutional Court’s judgment implies you are only allowed to use cannabis when you plant your own cannabis seeds. This gives rise to a new question: is it legal to import cannabis seeds? The judgment implies that this question can be answered affirmatively. As it is now allowed to grow your own cannabis, it can logically be deduced that it therefore also allowed to purchase cannabis seeds. These seeds can be bought locally, but can also be imported from a country overseas. Generally, the suppliers overseas are considered more reliable and provide higher quality produce than the suppliers in South Africa. This is because the growing of dagga in South Africa has only been recently legalised, whereas suppliers from other countries have had more experience. For example, the use of cannabis in the Netherlands has already been tolerated from the second half of the twentieth century.

The online purchase of cannabis seeds from South Africa

While some aspects of the judgment of the Constitutional Court still remain hazy, one thing is clear as daylight: it is now allowed to use cannabis in the context of a personal home provided that this cannabis is grown by the user himself. As stated before, the required cannabis seeds can be bought locally, but it may be more advisable to import the cannabis seeds. Would you like to give importing a try?

What should I buy if I want to buy Marijuana seeds?

That depends on what you need or what you want from your weed. Firstly make sure that you are familiar with what a healthy marijuana seed looks like. Fully mature and healthy marijuana seeds are dark brown, often marbled through with lighter shades or stripes. Seeds that are pale green or white since these probably aren’t mature or healthy and would most probably not sprout, let alone produce a healthy marijuana plant.

What you want is big fat seeds, that you cannot crush between your fingers (don’t actually try) with a teardrop to almost rounded shape. You can use smaller seeds too, but generally speaking, you are much more likely to get a healthy sprout from a bigger seed. From here you will also want to consider things like genetics, brand (breeder of seed), what type of marijuana you want and what your growth space is like.

Marijuana seed genetics

Genetics of the seed will tell you a lot about what kind of plant you are going to have. Basics to keep in mind is whether the plant is indica or sativa dominant. The better trained the genetics of a seed, the more likely the plant is to grow as it says on the pack. Please don’t buy bag seeds and then expect to get a plant that grows in a certain way or that has certain traits that the guy said it will. Creating a stable cannabis strain takes many years and lots of hard work. Crossbreeding and experimenting to create a seed with the needed genetics and characteristics can take a very long time. The more stable the genetics, the more the seed will cost.

What are Marijuana seed brands?

If you’ve done any research on the topic, you have probably seen or read about some of the more popular marijuana seed brands. These well-known brands have been developing and growing marijuana seeds for many years. These years of work and experience has obviously produced some really stable genetics that you can now purchase to grow for yourself. These well-known brands seeds are often more expensive, but worth it if you don’t want to end up wasting your money.

Here are some of the more popular brands to look out for:

That very much depends on what seeds you buy. Bag seeds you might be able to get for free, out of a bag of weed that you have. Or you might be able to buy some bag seeds from someone that has some for as little as R25 per seed. Or if you want a specific Dinafem genetics marijuana seed then it could cost you over R1000 a seed. It literally comes down to what you are willing to pay for the seed of the cannabis plant that you want to grow.

Where do you buy cannabis seeds in South Africa?

Like most people trying to grow dagga for the first time, it is often advised that you use bag seeds. Those are the seeds that you find in your bag of dagga. This can be a cost-effective way to acquire cannabis seeds without running the risk of wasting a ton of money by overwatering all your sprouts. Likewise, if all the plants turn out to be male then at least you will not have paid massive amounts of cash for a bunch of seeds.

Other than that there are many online options to buy marijuana seeds in South Africa. Just make sure that if you are using an international seed bank that they do in fact ship cannabis seeds to South Africa. There are also a bunch of local online seed shops that have a large variety of seeds to choose from.

How will I get my marijuana seeds?

Your cannabis seeds will be sent to you via the mail or via courier. That depends on the seeds bank that you buy from and the shipping methods that they offer. Normal mail is normally the cheapest, but you also run the highest risk of receiving crushed seeds or not receiving seeds at all. This doesn’t happen all of the time (or even most of the time) but it has happened. Couriers are generally a more reliable delivery option, but they almost always come at a higher cost.

Better seed banks will ship your cannabis seeds in some type of protective packaging, in an attempt to avoid any damage to the seeds. Crushproof and discreet packaging is the sign of a seed bank that wants to make sure you receive your product.

How can you pay for marijuana seeds online?

These days most seed banks will accept credit card or debit card. There are also seed banks that offer options like a cheque if you are old school, or PayPal and even Bitcoin if you are really new school. Credit Card seems to be the most hassle-free option available to South Africans that want to buy marijuana seeds, especially when buying from international seed banks.
