Sales Warning!

Germination of Cannabis seeds is illegal in some states. Bay Area Seed Exchange sells Cannabis seeds as a collectible adult genetic preservation souvenir.

We refuse to sell cannabis seeds to anyone we have reason to believe is going to cultivate them in a state where it is illegal to cultivate them.  We will notify any customers when cannabis becomes legal in their state.

You must be 18 years of age or older to place an order.

Important notice! We do not ship Cannabis seeds to states in the USA where collection of Cannabis seeds are illegal.

We dispatch our seeds on the condition that they will not be used by others in conflict with applicable local law. Unfortunately, regulation and implementation in respect of cannabis seeds often differ from state to state. We therefore advise you as a matter of urgency to make inquiries about the regulations to which you are subject. For this reason, Bay Area Seed Exchange can regrettably accept no responsibility for products intercepted or lost in transit if you place an order for a product to be sent to a country where it is illegal.

As a Bay Area Seed Exchange customer, you are also prohibited from distributing Bay Area Seed Exchange seeds to states where possession of and/or trafficking in Cannabis seeds is illegal.

Germination
For states where Cannabis germination is legal, viability and germination rates of all varieties are tested on a regular basis. However, Bay Area Seed Exchange does not accept any product-liability and we do not give any guarantees.

Bay Area Seed Exchange does not wish to induce anyone to act in conflict with the law. All persons who purchase seeds are responsible for their actions in the future.  Bay Area Seed Exchange will accept no responsibility in this respect. All information contained on the Bay Area Seed Exchange website and any Bay Area Seed Exchange promotional material or packaging is for educational purposes only, and is not intended to condone, promote or incite the use or cultivation of illegal and/or controlled substances.

SEEDS ARE SOLD STRICTLY FOR KEEPSAKE, PRESERVATION PURPOSES AND NOT FOR CULTIVATION.
