MSNL Review

Growers have long since become familiar with one of the top seed banks on the Web, marijuana-seeds.nl (MSNL). Back in 1999, MSNL was one of the first to enter into the online seed bank world, and today they continue to be one of the top-selling seed banks online.

Seeds

MSNL has an excellent range and everything you’d expect including regular, feminized and autoflowering seeds. The best thing is that they stock the most powerful and awarded genetics so you don’t need to.

A clearly structured website and a huge range without being overwhelming, they have a quality range that makes you resection much simpler making it easy for you to find something that you are guaranteed to love.

There is a great variety of classic genetic cup winners like White Widow and Big Bud; as well as fruity flavours, massive yielders, rapid finishers and more. They also classify strains into easy to use categories like High THC / CBD, Autoflowers, Medical etc.

Genetic quality is outstanding: our testers all rated 100% success rate across a wide variety of mediums including, soil, hydro, coco and rockwool starters. Our testers matured the plants to fruition with zero hermaphrodites and a very even homogeneity. THC tests all shown results in line with stated expectations.

Value

MSNL offer one of the best bangs for your buck in the market. Perfectly matching quality and price to a tee. Their regular sales cover a wide variety of seed types, plus they frequently offer flash sales and seasonal promos. Check out MSNL’S Sale deals by clicking here.

For those interested in deals, MSNL has a “Sale” page that’s always full of savings. At the time of this review, there were a total of 32 strains available at as much as 50% off, with many “Buy One Get One Free” offers. This is something not a lot of seed banks offer, and MSNL is always changing this page up, so it’s definitely worth taking a look.

Value packs – A unique offering to MSNL is their selection of “value packs” which are a permanent feature allowing customers to try a selection of 3 individually picked and clearly labelled strains, from a shared characteristic. These include a Super Strong Pack, a Fruity/Flavoursome pack and an entry level “budget” pack.

Wholesale/Bulk – Those looking for larger quantity or wholesale volumes of seeds can buy EVERY strain in the rage at highly discounted rates (normally 100+ seeds of an individual strain), up to 55% off. (add in description of how this works) when we enquired about wholesale rates on very large orders they were happy to look at even larger discounts on an individually negotiated basis.

Loyalty-Rewards scheme – MSNL also provides their customers with even more savings by allowing them to accumulate MSNL Rewards. These rewards work just like a point card in a retail store, and seed buyers can use them towards future purchases, making that next purchase even cheaper. (eg leaving reviews, birthdays, refer-a-friend etc). It is definitely the best rewards program we found from any of our reviewed websites.

Free Seeds – MSNL is one of the only sites to offer a minimum of 5 free seeds with every order. The free seed volume and variation increase significantly as the value of the order goes up. Even a modest value order gives you 10 free seeds of three different types.

Website

“MSNL offer one of the best bangs for your buck in the market. Perfectly matching quality and price to a tee…”

Finding what you are looking for is easy with MSNL’s clever navigaton structure. The website is clearly broken down into categories from the homepage with filters allowing for refined finding of strains based on many categories such as THC, Yield, Speed, and price bracket.

Top Strains – The top strains across the site are easily accessible form the homepage allowing instant access to the best and most popular varieties on the site. There is also a specific top strains section which has strains classified by similar characteristic, such as: Top 10 Yielders, Top strongest strains, Top fastest flowering strains and many more. These are all easily reached form a single page hub.

Tasting notes – A truly unique and we found particularly helpful feature is the MSNL “Tasting Wheel”. This is a clear visual guide to the main flavour profiles each strain has as well as the more prevalent types of high or stone that using this strain delivers.

Guides – There are a number of pages that allow users to gain more info on types of strain, so if you are unsure on what strain is right for you, the simple layout and information will hold your hand through the decision making process.

Other features include a highly accurate search function which not only displays strains based on the keywords entered but also any relevant articles of guide that match the search criteria entered. Each strain has its own customer review section so that you can see real feedback from other growers giving a more informative approach before you choose to buy. A clear and interactive cart, plus a fast 2 step checkout makes finalising your order a simple, straightforward and pleasurable process.

MSNL also has an FAQ page, where the most frequently asked questions – and their answers – can be found, so users can get answers to their questions even faster. )

 

Payment

Marijuana-Seeds.nl offers one the most comprehensive payment option of all the seedbanks we have tested to date. From Credit Cards, Bank Wire, Money order, cash and bitcoin no matter which way is easiest for you, they can serve your needs simply and efficiently.

Upon checkout these payment options are clearly displayed with full details and guidance on how to use them (and in many cases claim discounts or extra free seeds!). You receive an email immediately on checkout with the details of your order plus a reminder of how payment can be made so you don’t have to scrabble around for a pen before the window closes!

Our testers used a variety of options including credit card, bitcoin and cash, with all three being very smooth and secure; plus the customer support team were on hand quickly when we did have a query. With the cash payment we followed the directions on how to send it and the payment was received 7 days later, without any incidents. For more information on MSNL payment methods click here.

Customer Service

We found MSNL’s customer service to be second to none. Contact is clear and simple through their online form, response time varied form immediate to within 1 working day. They also have an active support through their facebook page which was an added bonus if you need a very quick response to a simple question. MSNL also has an FAQ page, where the most frequently asked questions – and their answers – can be found, so users can get answers to their questions even faster.. Responses were friendly and helpful, but they are very clear in that they are restricted to how some queries can be answered due to legal restrictions, this could lead to some potential frustration as certain questions will not be responded to at all if they are not within the legal limits. This is standard across all sites we contacted.

Delivery

Our shipping test had two sample orders placed and dispatched, one to North America and one to Europe with both orders arriving within a week. There are multiple shipping options available ranging from cheap and cheerful through to highest level stealth with guaranteed delivery. These shipping levels will not impact on the speed items arrive, with almost all orders arriving within a 5-10 day window, with the exception of eth UK being 1-2 days. The packages are all plain and unmarked as to their contents, with some of the stealth methods we have seen being outstanding, so much so that some customers initially could not locate their order even though they knew they were in that package! All orders that choose guaranteed shipping are sent with a tracking code and if you do not want to have to sign it, there is a simple non-signature request option when you check out.

View all our delivery options here.

MSNL has quickly become one of the best seed banks on the web, and it’s easy to see why. With stealth shipping, fast delivery, and most importantly, the best quality strains that are easy to grow, MSNL works with growers to get them the results they’re looking for, and so much more.

420 Seeds

420 Seeds doesn’t have a lot of information about the company on the site. But while one won’t learn about their history or find out how long they’ve been in business, 420 Seeds does promote the fact that they cultivate only the highest quality F1 strains available. Those strains include some top sellers such as Girl Scout Cookies, Auto Blueberry, and Critical.

Variety

The company certainly doesn’t have the largest selection of seeds on the web. While their competitors sometimes have hundreds of seeds, at the time of this review they had just under 30. Those strains however, are some of the most popular that can be found today, and they are advertising new strains that are coming in every day. Big Bud, Auto Cheese Feminized, and Lemon Haze seeds are some of the company’s most popular.

Value

The value customers receive from 420 Seeds solely depends on the type of seeds they are buying. While the seed bank prices over top of their competitors with some strains, they offer great deals on others. This might leave some consumers finding great deals, but it will turn others away as they know that certain seeds are available for better prices elsewhere.

However, the site may make up for its overpriced stock with the discount that it provides on every single order. With every order – no minimum required – customers will receive a whopping 10 free Bubblegum seeds. That’s far more than the one to three that are offered through other seed banks.

Website

The website found at http://www.420-seeds.com/ may not be as flashy or graphic-heavy as other seed bank websites, but it’s just as effective. Every strain that 420 Seeds carries is listed right at the bottom at the home page with a brief description, so there’s not a lot of flipping through different web pages for users.

However, sometimes a simple website is just a simple website, and this seems to be true with this one. There’s little information to help growers and consumers, and even the contact page is simply a link that takes users directly to their external email. With a website that’s already provides basic information only, it would be nice to see more contact information such as a physical address or even a phone number.

Customer Service

Unfortunately, there is a lack in quality customer service that some of their competitors are known to have. While some users have reported ordering without problem, many have stated that they never received their packages, or that when they tried to grow the seeds, they weren’t viable for a number of reasons. To make the situation even more unfortunate, some users have claimed that when contacting 420 Seeds, the company turned it around and made it seem as though it was the grower’s fault, without taking any responsibility or trying to make it up to the customer.

Delivery

Shipment is global making it possible for anyone in the world to grow great seeds. Seeds are packaged in a crush-proof envelope so seeds arrive safely and undamaged, and 420 Seeds also has different stealth options ranging from plain envelopes to packages that have additional hidden security measures. Even the standard shipping option includes just a plain envelope without the words “cannabis” or “420” appearing anywhere on it.

420 Seeds is known by just about anyone that has ever tried to purchase cannabis seeds online, however there’s still too much unknown about them to really give them a five-star rating. It’s highly recommended that buyers choose an extremely secure payment method when purchasing from 420 Seeds, and that they track their shipment, when possible. When using these methods, 420 Seeds are sure to deliver some of the best marijuana strain seeds!

Bomb Seeds

As growers continue to buy from Bomb Seeds, they become more familiar with the different genetics, helping them choose which Bomb they like best.

Berry Bomb for instance, is a cross between the Blueberry strain and Bomb genetics, while Hash Bomb is a cross of a hash strain, Amsterdam Skunk, and Bomb #1. These are just a few of the strains Bomb Seeds has available, along with Bubble Bomb, Ice Bomb, and the classic THC Bomb.

Variety

At the time of this review, Bomb Seeds has twenty different strains from Atomic Bomb to Widow Bomb. Some growers may be slightly disappointed with this small number of strains, especially when comparing them to other seed banks that have dozens, if not hundreds, of different strains available. This selection also seems somewhat limited to standard strains and auto strains. Feminized seeds would be a nice addition to the seed bank, as many growers don’t want to mess around with sexing their plants.

The Bomb genetics that Bomb Seeds uses are also top-notch and produce stable plants that provide a strong smoke and high yield. However, growers may once again want to branch out of the “Bomb” varieties and for that, they will need to visit another seed bank.

Value

Bomb Seeds has fairly average prices, although many of their top strains such as THC Bomb are offered at a slightly higher price point than competitor sites. Like many other seed banks, Bomb Seeds does offer bonus seeds to customers when orders are over a certain amount, but at 60 pounds, that amount is also higher than average. However, the seeds offered are THC feminized and Ice Bomb feminized, which would definitely make it worthwhile for those searching for female seeds.

A sale or clearance page would be greatly appreciated on Bomb Seeds site. With prices that are already higher than average, growers would surely take advantage of any time this bank was offering seeds on discount, which unfortunately they do not do at this time. Users that like their Facebook page and share that day’s strain are eligible to win a free pack of seeds, but this takes time and isn’t suitable for everyone.

Website

Everything Bomb Seeds offers one can find on their home page. With the different strains listed down the side of the screen, growers can find the one they’re looking for at just a glance. Their FAQ section is perhaps the most helpful of all, describing the process of breeding and selecting seeds, as well as the different shipping methods that are offered.

While it’s great to have this information at one’s fingertips, it’s also worth noting that it’s all available on the home page simply because that’s all there is; even the “about” page simply transfers the user back to the FAQ page. It would be nice to see a small history of the bank, how long they’ve been in business, and other information.

Customer Service

Bomb Seeds does provide users with a contact page, where they’ll find an email address that can be used to send inquiries, concerns and questions. Users have reported fast reply times, with Bomb Seeds answering questions in an effort to help customers buy the very best seeds for them.

Delivery

Although their seeds are developed in the Netherlands, Bomb Seeds delivers worldwide and the closer the customer is to the bank, the faster they’ll receive their shipment. Bomb Seeds does state that international orders can take as long as three weeks to deliver, but UK orders typically arrive at their destination within just a couple of days.

Like many other seed banks, Bomb Seeds offers super stealth delivery options, much to the delight of customers worried about discretion. Also like other banks, Bomb Seeds offers different stealth levels, with the packages using the most discretion costing just a bit more that growers agree is completely worth it.

Bomb Seeds may not have the biggest selection of strains when it comes to seed banks, but everything else they do is superior. What many growers like best about this bank is that their product is available outside of their website, and can even be found offline. This means that when one falls in love with a particular Bomb Seeds strain and they don’t want to wait for the seeds to arrive in the mail, they can visit dispensaries to get their Bomb Seeds more quickly. And that’s a big benefit for many growers!

Sensi Seeds

Sensi Seeds

After finding success with his seeds, Donkers opened Sensi Seeds in 1997. Today, the entire Donker family is involved in the business in some way, either working in the bank regularly or as part of the IT department. Today Sensi Seeds is one of the biggest, and also one of the best, seed banks one could find online. Some of the best strains they not only offer but are responsible for developing are: Big Bud, Jack Herer, Northern Lights, Purple Bud, and Hindu Kush.

Variety

Growers can get any kind of cannabis seeds at Sensi Seeds, including feminized and auto-flowering seeds. Being a breeder, Sensi Seeds only sells the seeds that they have specifically developed but because they’ve been part of the industry for so long, and they have so much experience at what they do, there’s still a strain to be found for anyone at Sensi Seeds. In all, Sensi Seeds has approximately 100 different types of strains.

In addition to the many seeds they have available, Sensi Seeds also has CBD oil for sale. This oil, which the website recommends using as a dietary supplement, is simply taken in drop form every day, and brings those suffering from certain ailments relief in the form of CBD – the non-psychoactive component of cannabis.

In addition to CBD oil and seeds, Sensi Seeds also has merchandise, vaporizers, and other accessories, all that can be found on the home page of their website.

Value

Being one of the biggest seed banks online, it’s easy for one to assume that they’re also one of the most expensive, but this is not true. In fact, Sensi Seeds has some of the most reasonably priced seeds online, often even beating their most affordable competitors when it comes to pricing.

However, Sensi Seeds doesn’t seem to offer any promotions or deals with their seeds – something nearly every other seed bank does. There is no sale section on the Sensi Seeds website, nor do they advertise any free gifts with purchase. This is one way in which the competition has it easily over Sensi Seeds.

Website

The Sensi Seeds website is very easy to navigate and although they have many different products, it’s not at all overwhelming. Seeds are clearly listed at the top of the page, so one only needs to decide what type of seeds they want and they’ll be well on their way to claiming them. The FAQ section of the website will also not only help customers understand things such as payment and shipping policies, but they also include questions about actually growing. These will be helpful to any beginner who is just starting out in growing their own seeds.

Customer Service

It’s also easy to assume that because they’re one of the biggest seed banks online, that they wouldn’t have time for their customers and therefore, their customer service may be a bit lacking. In fact, the opposite is true.

Sensi Seeds wants to make sure that every single customer is happy with their purchase. They don’t only provide their customer support phone number at the top of every page of their website, but they also provide a physical address, as well as an email address, that customers can use to direct any of their questions and concerns. And, they even have a forum, something that’s rarely found with seed banks, so customers can also use it to get help with their seeds or find solutions for problems they may be having.

Delivery

The one area in which Sensi Seeds falls short is that they don’t deliver seeds outside of European countries. This isn’t exactly unheard of, as a few other seed banks have the same policy, but it does leave those outside of the area searching for another seed bank.

Sensi Seeds also does their best in the number of payment methods they offer customers. Not only can one pay with credit cards, but cash is also accepted, as are bank transfer.

Like most seed banks, Sensi Seeds will deliver products to their customers using plain, white envelopes with bubble wrap inside to protect the contents within. While the words “Sensi Seeds”, “marijuana”, and “cannabis” will not be on the outside, if the package is opened anyone would easily be able to tell what’s inside. This is where Sensi Seeds’ competition ranks slightly better than them, as some offer packaging so discreet you can’t even tell what’s inside after it’s been opened.

There’s little doubt that Sensi Seeds is one of the best seed banks that can be found online (and in European storefronts as well). And with great customer service, a huge selection, and a website filled with information, one may even be tempted to say that they’re the best. However, the fact that they don’t deliver outside of Europe, and that their packaging lacks in discretion, are the only things keeping Sensi Seeds from a perfect score.

Auto Seeds Logo

Autoseeds

Variety

At the time of this review, Auto Seeds had only 17 strains available, which definitely falls short of other seed banks out there. However, these strains are some of the best strains that can be found, and of course, they’ve been crossed with the company’s own auto-flowering strain, giving them a slight edge over other seeds. The auto-flowering strain Auto Seeds uses ensures that no flavor or potency is lost, something that is often a concern for those growing from auto seeds.

And while there might not be hundreds of strains like one can find on other sites, Auto Seeds does have some strains that are typically hard to find, including Polar Express and Hijack. All seeds are kept in humidity and temperature controlled containers, as well as a medical refrigerator held at optimum temperatures. This ensures that all seeds are as fresh as possible when they reach the consumer.

Value

Auto Seeds does offer seeds at a fairly reasonable price that is on par with fair market value. Most of their strains stay in line with what their competitors charge, and while some may be a few pounds more, consumers also have to remember that these are auto-strains, so they bring an added benefit that other strains cannot.

Auto Seeds also likes to offer every single customer a discount on their purchase, while giving larger orders even more discounts. Every order receives free seeds and the more seeds ordered, more are given for free. Orders over 50 pounds in fact, will receive a total of three seeds, all from the best strains Auto Seeds has to offer.

The website accepts credit cards, cash, and money transfers as forms of payment.

Website

The Auto Seeds website is very easy to get around, with every strain they offer listed along the side. Each strain is complete with a full description, including THC content and potency percentages. The FAQ section is also very helpful when searching for information related to shipping and payment methods.

Customer Service

Auto Seeds has great customer service, and they are continuously looking to hear from customers, either about new strain suggestions or their questions and concerns. In order to do so, they provide an email address and PO Box on the contact page of their website.

Delivery

Auto Seeds does ship their seeds worldwide, and they use a plain unmarked package as their discreet shipping option. Compared to competitors, who “hide” the contents so well they can’t be seen even if the package is opened, this may be disappointing to those that are looking for the ultimate stealth in their packages.

Based out of Spain, Auto Seeds is able to get packages in and around the UK to their destination within just a couple of days, but that it can take as long as a week throughout the rest of Europe; and can take as long as 21 business days when packages are shipped internationally. Considering this latter option could keep packages from customers for over a month, that’s quite a long time.

Auto Seeds does try to compensate for any lost packages, but only if the tracking shows that the item has not yet been received by the customer. Upon proof that the customer never received their item, Auto Seeds will reship the package one time, in order to guarantee satisfaction.

Auto Seeds may be one of the simpler seed banks online, but they bring something that no other seed bank does – fully and completely auto-flowering, feminized seeds. Even if it takes a bit longer for them to arrive, once they do customers will be nearly guaranteed to get big, beautiful plants that produce beautiful buds.
