Can you legally buy cannabis seeds in the UK?

To many people's surprise, you can legally buy, own, and sell cannabis seeds in the UK.

Cannabis seeds in and of themselves are not illegal nor are they considered a controlled substance (such as THC).

What you do with the seeds determines whether or not possessing them is unlawful.

Germinating cannabis seeds

Germination of cannabis seed is illegal in most countries including the United Kingdom.

By section 6 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 it is an offence to cultivate any plant of the genus Cannabis in the United Kingdom without a license from the Secretary of State. Anyone committing an offence contrary to this section may be imprisoned or fined or both. Please note therefore that the germination of cannabis seeds without an appropriate license is illegal in the United Kingdom.

Why own cannabis seeds?

Under current UK law, you may own cannabis seeds for a number of reasons. People often purchase cannabis seeds as interesting collectors’ items, bird food, high-quality fishing bait, and other general interest purposes such as the preservation of genetics.
