Just because a seed bank has a nice website and on top of your search results doesn’t guarantee it’s dependable.
And on top of that, there are so many things to get right.
Even if they grow the best seeds and follow the most advanced cultivation techniques, the seeds can still get seized if your delivery isn’t stealthy enough.
Those are mistakes I guess everyone makes in the beginning. Then, there are companies who simply don’t take customer service seriously enough. And in a business like selling cannabis seeds, it’s important to have excellent customer service.
If god forbid something happens to your seeds, like they get seized or something, you would want a voice on the other end of the line telling you not to worry.
Before ordering from anywhere, make sure you check out a ton of reviews online on websites like Trustpilot and on Facebook.
Seed Supreme seems to receive a lot of flack online, mostly from the USA. And because I read through these reviews, I was super skeptical trying this out for myself.
About Seed Supreme
It’s hard to find much information about Seed Supreme on their website. However, they are based out of the United Kingdom, and their facebook page was started back in 2013, so I’m guessing that’s when they started the business.
My experience with Seed Supreme
My experience with Seed Supreme definitely tested my patience and anger-management skills. And I wouldn’t want to wish this experience on anybody else, which is precisely why I’m writing this review today.
I mean, I guess I knew what to expect going in. They have problems when delivering to the US, and naturally, I wasn’t going to be exempt from those problems.
So anyway, here’s why you should definitely stay clear of Seed Supreme.
Seed Quality (Depends)
Seed supreme is just a seed bank. They do not grow their own seeds. They simply resell seeds from other producers. In that way, they’re like an e-commerce store for cannabis seeds.
As a result, the quality of your seeds depends entirely on the seed bank (cultivator) you buy it from. You need to check up individual reviews of the Seed Banks you’re buying from in order to make a good decision on what to buy.
Now, there are some people out there who say, that its a scam and they didn’t get the seeds they ordered. Instead, they got something else which turned out to be very substandard.
I didn’t have any experience of the type though. I ordered from Seedsman, and my seeds felt exactly like genuine Seedsman seeds.
Seed Strain Variety (8/10)
One thing Seed Supreme does not lack in is seed Strain variety. Just going through the website, you’ll see that they have a huge collection of seeds from all the best seed banks out there. Sensi Seeds, Ministry Of Cannabis, Seedsman, you name it – it’s on their list. There are seed banks from all over the world, and you definitely won’t be at a lack of choice.
They have regular, feminized, and auto-flowering seeds. They even have them categorized according to THC and CBD content, Indica/ Sativa, Kush strains, Blue Strains, Hush strains, etc.
Just select a list, and then you get to compare the best strains from different seed banks.
If you’re having a hard time choosing, simply choose one of the staff picks or their highest selling strains or the ones with the highest THC if you want to get bombed.
There are seeds for all sorts of medical conditions like ADHD, glaucoma, bipolar and there are also types for symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, headaches, etc.
Shipping And Discretion (4/10)
This is where Seed Supreme gets really disappointing. They promise to deliver within 10 days, but it took 4 weeks before my seeds finally got delivered.
There are people everywhere going nuts over how their packages never reached them and they have been trying in vain to get a refund or something.
I always sign up for the extra stealthy delivery ($9.99) and delivery guarantee ($12.) That’s a lot of extra money, and I can’t imagine why it’s not possible to simply put the stealthy delivery and delivery guarantee together.
I would definitely not sign up for them if I was making small orders and that is why I guess so many people didn’t get their seeds.
Seed Supreme makes no effort whatsoever if your seeds get seized by authorities and they claim they are totally not liable if the seeds don’t reach you. My order got seized several times, and I had to show them photos and receipts to get them to send it again, which was a massive headache especially with their almost non-existent customer care.
As far as discretion goes, if you choose the stealth option, they package your seeds inside very non-suspicious items like the inside of a pen or a DVD case or a t-shirt. While that is okay, they must still be doing something wrong if so many of their orders are getting seized by customs.
Payment Methods (5/10)
As far as payment methods go, they seem very keen on promoting certain methods over others – this might seem like a shady practice, but I guess they just don’t want any problems that can be avoided.
As of the moment, they do not accept Paypal or bank transfers or wire transfers. I really don’t get what so many people have against Paypal.
My guess is they’re all terrified of leaving a paper trail with any bank whatsoever, which is also why they don’t accept cheques. You can pay with a credit or a debit card, but that’s only if the orders are above £50 and below £250. What’s also very weird is that you can make credit card payments only at certain hours of the day.
What that basically leaves you with is using Bitcoin or some other digital currency (they’ll give you a 20% discount if you do) or you could send them cash in an envelope. But again, they’ll take no responsibility if your envelope gets misplaced.
Who’s to stop them from taking your money and then telling you they never got paid? While that might sound like I’m being a little too suspicious, that’s just the way the website has made me feel.
Promos And Free Seeds
They do give away free seeds with every order, and they also give you back some amount of cashback or ‘Kush money’ as they call it. No matter what problems you might face – if the delivery is delayed or your seeds are broken, they’ll want to just give you some Kush money, which you can redeem for future purchases.
Don’t fall for it. It’s the oldest trick in the book. They’ll give you loyalty points which you can redeem, but you can’t use all of it – you can only use 25% or 50% at a time – you’ll have to pay the rest with your money.
That way you can only use the kush money if you want to order a second time and even then, you can’t use all of it.
Customer Service (2/10)
Who do you have to kill to get a reply? I must have mailed them a dozen times, and I got a reply only once. It’s always automated, and there doesn’t seem to be any real effort in providing a good experience for a customer.
When I finally got to talking with someone, they made every effort possible not to honor the delivery guarantee. They will transfer you to other people, claim it’s not their fault, and I’ve read countless reviews where people weren’t allowed to order with the delivery guarantee, and then their seeds never arrived.
Maybe it’s all their fault, maybe it’s not. Things would have been a lot clearer, and there would have definitely been a lot more clarity if I could just talk to a customer exec to find out what went wrong. But that seems impossible.
– Stocks seeds from reputed seed banks
– High diversity in strain options
– Free Seeds
– Highly undependable delivery
– Separate costs for stealthy and guaranteed delivery
– Very few payment options
– Lack of responsibility
– Terrible customer service
Will I order from Seed Supreme Again?
This is definitely the final time I’m ordering from Seed Supreme. They have an impressive catalog of strains, but their delivery and poor customer service is just too much trouble to deal with.
At no point during my purchase, was I confident the seeds were going to reach me (even with the guaranteed delivery), and all of my messages to them were coming back unanswered.
Also, with so many good seed banks out there, there is no need to trouble yourself with them. If you want to head somewhere which has just as diverse a catalog of strains and who are totally and completely dependable and reliable, I highly recommend you check out I love Growing Marijuana.
They are one of the best seed banks out there. The seeds are of top-notch quality and most importantly you can put your mind at ease, that the seeds will reach you, and they will germinate once planted. And if anything goes wrong, customer service will be there to help you out.
