Marijuana seeds laws are constantly changing and evolving over time. Right now, the cannabis community in the US, whether it be commercial growers, home growers, or businesses related to the weed market can get their seeds from all over the country and not have to worry about breaking federal law. Previously, due to federal illegality, cannabis seeds were restricted to the state in which they were produced, so a strain bred and grown in one state, legally, could not go beyond the boundaries of that state.

A recent legal clarification from the DEA could mean that seeds of cannabis strains popular in one part of the country could be legally shipped to another part of the country because the DEA considers all forms of cannabis seeds to be federal legal hemp.

What is the benefit of this change in the law?

First of all, it is great news because popular strains from a particular area of the US will be able to be marketed anywhere, meaning that the marijuana seed market will expand. Markets such as California, Washington, or Oregon could reach legal markets on the East Coast and also markets that will open soon such as New York and New Jersey. For the companies that sell cannabis seeds, this is great news and also for the people who grow marijuana plants as they will have more diversity of strains to choose from.

Are cannabis seeds illegal?

At this time, cannabis strains are somewhat isolated in the regions where they are bred and created as they cannot be transported across state borders. For example, while recreational weed is legal at the state level in both California and Washington, moving a plant from one of those states to another is illegal at the federal level. The truth is that many marijuana breeders and seed banks across the US operate in a legal vacuum. In some countries, they are sold as a collector’s item which gives them a loophole to circumvent the law.

In 2018, Congress passed a farm bill legalizing hemp in the U.S. It defined “hemp” as any cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC. This allows hemp to be grown and used for industrial purposes to create textiles and materials. The 2018 bill also opened up hemp production for the creation of cannabinoids other than delta-9 THC, such as CBD, delta-8, and others.

Because CBD and delta-8 products are generally extracted from hemp plants, i.e., cannabis plants containing less than 0.3% THC, they can be found in states that do not have legal recreational cannabis. Cannabis seeds have always been considered illegal because they come from plants with high THC content. The source of the seeds is above 0.3% THC, so anything that comes from those plants, such as seeds, has also been considered illegal cannabis. We encourage you to discover our strains with high CBD for people who need to alleviate their pains, illnesses, or enjoy a surprising terpene profile.

What does this change?

First, if the DEA and the federal government allow seeds to cross state lines, adults would be able to grow and consume seeds and strains from across the country in their own state. Certain strains would no longer be confined to a specific region, but could be enjoyed nationwide.

In a short time, we will see new companies emerge into the weed market. In addition, it may generate more investment, a larger industry, and greater acceptance of the plant.


From now on, breeders will have a greater diversity of strains to work with. The number and diversity of new strains is likely to increase, taking advantage of new consumer trends and tastes.


This is great news! The DEA’s recognition that cannabis seeds, clones, and tissue cultures are not controlled substances is not law, but it is a big step forward in relaxing restrictions on weed.
