Serious Seeds Review
COMPANY HISTORY AND REPUTATION
Serious Seeds originated from the nineties when a man found his passion for cannabis. Simon, a biology student at Amsterdam had never been a pot smoker before he travelled to Africa. It was during the trip that he discovered the amazing world of cannabis, it was such a life changing experience!
He immediately began collecting seeds for his private collection and, using his biology knowledge, started crossbreeding them to make his own creations. He worked for a time at Sensi Seeds where he accumulated valuable experience and knowledge before striking out on his own and forming Serious Seeds in 1994. As of 2018, they have more than 20 years in the business and they are one of the very first seed banks out there on the market.
That same year, 1994, Simon, the founder, created AK-47 and he immediately won a high times cannabis cup and until this day it still one of the strongest strains around. With this they won so many awards and did so many crosses that this propelled Simon and Serious Seeds into marijuana fame. Another of his strain won the high times cannabis cup. Talk about starting off with a bang! In 2012, they acquired Magus Genetics, which had a few popular strains of its own that had become cult classics in local coffee shops.
Rather than pushing out a flashy new strain each year to keep up with the other brands, Serious Seeds focuses on producing reliable, top-notch genetics and only releasing new products when they’re ready to be released. Because of this, they have a good reputation in the industry as producing great strains that are stable and easy to grow for everyone. They even guarantee the germination of their seeds, which earns them many major points.
SEED SELECTION & PRODUCT QUALITY
Serious Seed doesn’t have many strains, only 15 but each and every single one of them is unique and is an award winner. Some of the most popular are AK-47, Bubble Gum, Chronic, Kali Mist, White Russian, Warlock, Double Dutch, Exile Biddy Early, Motivation and Serious Happiness. Every single one of their strains has been created by Serious Seeds and some by Magus Genetics because they fused with this Dutch seedbank, but they only work with our original strains and they definitely don’t copycat other names.
Their credo is quality over quantity. Serious Seeds is like the curated, luxury marijuana brand – they only sell the best of the best. They also don’t rename a strain and market it as something new if they just tweak the genetics to make a few improvements, as other brands are apt to do. This cuts down on confusion for the customer while ensuring that they get the latest, greatest product. These 15 strains have earned nearly 70 awards in international competitions, so you know they’re “serious.”
The quality of customer service is one of the surefire ways to separate a good shop from a bad one. Apparently, Serious Seeds takes quality of its products and the satisfaction of its customers very “serious”. Being such a small company, they really do rely on a solid customer base and word of mouth, so they are more than willing to go extra miles to keep their beloved customers happy with the shopping experience.
Serious Seeds is among the vary rare weed seed banks that dares to guarantee its’ seeds germination. After all, as long as you receive your weed seeds as soon as you wish with great germination rates and an excellent finished product, what would you need to contact the company for, right? In the very rare cases that you have any problems with your seeds or are not satisfied in any way, they will replace your seeds completely free of charge. Now that is an unbeatable satisfaction guarantee!
The Serious Seeds website is easy to navigate with simple and straight-forward design. It has lots of good information and you can easily locate what you are looking for. You can search by types such as Indica, Sativa, Hybrid, Autoflowering, Medical, Limited Edition, Awards Won, etc. There are plenty of FAQs there to answer any questions you may have, and if not, it easy to get in contact with Serious Seeds through the ‘Contact’ page.
PRICE AND PAYMENT OPTIONS
If you ask me then I’d say Serious seeds are worth your salt at any price. Please keep in mind the value that the germination guarantee adds when you buy directly from Serious Seeds. Yet their prices are inline with market values! If you get 100% germination from Serious Seeds and only 50% from a different brand, it’s the same as Serious Seeds being 50% off in price. That’s a bargain!
As far as payment methods go, Serious Seeds accepts credit cards, direct bank transfer, cash in envelope, or iDEAL for those with a Dutch bank account. You cannot use money orders, PayPal, or bitcoin to pay for your direct order at Serious Seeds, which is such a shame. To get around this, you could order Serious Seeds from a different seed reseller offering the payment option you want to use, but that would negate the germination guarantee that Serious Seeds offers its customers.
Serious Seeds ships to every country all around the world except the United States, Germany, and Australia. They offer their customers several different shipping options including normal, stealth, and registered shipping. Both normal and stealth shipping are available for the cost of 5 Euro. If your order totals over 80 Euro, you’ll get normal or steal shipping free of charge. Registered shipping options will cost 10 Euro. Packages are usually delivered within 1 to 2 weeks after the payment is received.
Overall, Serious Seeds is a very reputable business that sells nothing but undeniably great products. Even though their selection is not a huge one, but each of their strains is specially taken care of. The other two disadvantages are the lack of payment options and the inability to ship to some major countries. You can get around this by buying through resellers, but that will make you ineligible for Serious Seed’s amazing germination guarantee offer. In other word, Serious Seeds are a great place to buy from for those who are able to. Those who can’t will be stuck on the outside, jealously looking in (hopefully only for a period of time. Only time will tell)!
