Cannabis seeds are not controlled by the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, signed in New York on March 30, 1961, amended by the Geneva Protocol of March 25, 1972 and ratified by the Spanish State.
The Single Convention establishes which part or parts of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant are controlled; the flowering or fruiting tops of the cannabis plant, as well as the resin obtained from the cannabis plant, but expressly excludes the seeds. Seeds are excluded from the legal concept of cannabis and are not included in its Schedules.
The seeds of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant lack the active ingredient Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Therefore, according to the Single Convention, the seeds of the cannabis plant are not controlled and cannot be qualified as narcotic drugs.
In Spain, the sale, possession and cultivation for personal use of cannabis seeds is not a crime. The Spanish Penal Code criminalizes the cultivation of cannabis for the purpose of promoting, encouraging or facilitating its consumption by third parties.
According to the Supreme Court Prosecutor, Mr. Fernando SEQUEROS SAZATORNIL, the sale of cannabis seeds in quantities for domestic cultivation for consumption and self-supply for the same purpose (including the seeds reproduced from those seeds) cannot be considered, in any way, as a crime.
The cultivation of cannabis for personal use may constitute an administrative offense in accordance with Article 36.18 of Organic Law 4/2015 of March 30, 2015, on the protection of citizen security, if it is carried out in places visible to the public.
Global Web Market, S.L. seeds are not commercial varieties and are not intended for agricultural crops. These are amateur varieties, according to Law 30/2006, of July 26, 2006, on seeds and nursery plants and plant genetic resources. The seeds are sold for personal use by persons over 18 years of age only. Global Web Market, S.L. commercializes cannabis seeds, as articles destined for collecting or genetic preservation, with the specific restriction that they are not used for purposes that contravene current regulations.
In accordance with the principle of mutual recognition, EU Member States may not prohibit the sale on their territory of goods that are lawfully marketed in another Member State, even when those goods have been produced in accordance with different technical standards (Regulation (EU) 2019/515 of 19 March 2019 on the mutual recognition of goods lawfully marketed in another Member State).
National laws on the application of cannabis seeds differ greatly between countries. In some, the germination and cultivation of cannabis for personal use, and even the mere possession of the seeds, may constitute a criminal offense. Global Web Market, S.L. does not want to induce anyone to violate the law in force in any country.
For this reason, non-resident purchasers in Spain are kindly requested to inform themselves about the applicable local legislation. Global Web Market, S.L. encourages its customers to act responsibly.
Global Web Market, S.L. declines any responsibility for possible legal problems that may arise for buyers, and will not make refunds for seeds seized or rejected by carriers or customs in the performance of their duty.
The fact that some descriptions allude to the effects of consumption does not in any case mean that they should be consumed, since they are simply informative descriptions. Global Web Market, S.L. declines all responsibility for the decisions that the buyer can take based on this information, for the possible typographical errors that can contain the documents and graphs of the page or derived from the bad use of the seeds.
