In the light of the changed legislation we have decided to adjust our policy regarding the sale of cannabis seeds. In several (legal) online articles numbers of 200 plants are mentioned as being the boundary between hobby and professional cultivation. Although weed seeds are excluded from List 2 of the Opium Act, we think it is wise to keep a maximum of 25 seeds per customer.
To make it clear that we want to stay far from professional cultivation, we have decided to sell a maximum of 25 cannabis seeds per customer. In this way, it is possible for the hobby grower to grow a few plants of (medicinal) weed without facilitating criminal offenses by Dutch-headshop. The cannabis seeds are exclusively intended for collectors.
If you want to send more than 25 seeds, you will not be able to complete the order. It is not allowed to purchase various cannabis seeds in a shorter period of time. Should this unexpectedly succeed, the order will still be canceled or modified by us.
Our entire product range has been adapted to the new Opium Act, also known as the Growshop Law. We sell exclusively for own use; purchases for large-scale or professional cultivation are refused. We only sell products in small numbers for the small-scale hobby home grower. This means only small quantities, volumes and permitted products that are not on the list of indicators in Appendix 1 "Opium Act Designation". It is not allowed to make multiple purchases in a shorter period.
If you still order large quantities or volumes then the order will still be canceled or modified by us. If we suspect the intention to proceed with the illegal use of our products, we will refuse the purchase.
