Nice company i see they should be under…
Nice company i see they should be under a 2.0 rating soon and thats where this company belongs.
In the crapper.
So i purchased 3 seeds Dec 5 2020
So i purchased 3 seeds Dec 5 2020. Should of taken 5-6 business days. I live like 25mins from Toronto. Tracking shows it is lost. Contact true north and say wait 1 week. Please wait another 1week. Now wait another 2 weeks. No saying waiting on canada post. Customer service is Garbage. Don’t waste your money with this company.
Better pay for the insurance. Only way they’ll help.
Everything will be fine IF you get their over priced shipping insurance, If not they will not help you in anyway and just tell you its been confiscated at customs.
I know this is not true its at the post office with a damaged label.
I ordered Afghan AF and all 5 seeds did not germinate and they did not post my review on their site. Ordered again : Northern Lights cross Big Bud, 10 seeds only two germinated.
Horrible, rip off, scam
I ordered from True North Seed Bank in November 2020. The order was challenghing to pay for but after a few weeks I was able to get them to ship. The order arived in 14 days but about half the seeds were black, dense, sank and did not sprout. I contacted customer service and they generously agreed to replace them – so I also bought more seeds – about $160 worth. Now 14 days after estimated delivery they tell me my order is likely held up in customs and I will not be refunded or replaced! What a horrible, awful, very bad experience! I actually hate this company, their policies and customer service hacks!
Terrible service, never received shipment
Ordered some seeds from them, delivery estimate between 5-10 days with expedited shipping, no problem.
I waited 30 days, still have yet to receive my order from them. I contacted them telling them I haven’t received my order, they told me to wait 48 hours just in case and contact them again so that they could assist. I waited a WEEK, and STILL did not receive my order. I contacted them again, letting them know once more that I still have yet to receive my shipment.
They then go on to tell me that since I did not purchase the delivery guarantee, then they could do nothing. No refund, no reshipment, nothing BUT they would do me the FAVOR of giving me a discount on my NEXT order.
Next order? Why would I ever want to reorder something when it’s been a month and a half without receiving my first order? Charged back my credit card and will never purchase again, I would advise you do the same.
As promised everytime
I have ordered multiple times with many different strains and never had an issue in any way.
All my orders were delivered early and we’ll packaged, I purchase the delivery insurance (only available in Canada for some reason) for every order and have never needed to make a claim. I get about a 90% germination rate using well established seed companies like Barneys farm and Dutch passion and much less success with lesser known seed companies and lower rates with autoflowers regardless of the company,with that lesson I learned you get what you pay for when it comes to seeds, so don’t cheap out you will only screw yourself. Thanks TNSB and Happy growing everyone.
This company is crap PLZ read the…
This company is crap PLZ read the reviews from most
This company is one of the worst on the map.
Rated a 2 for a reason. Same issues across the board and they do nothing to rectify any issues with seeds. Doesn’t matter if you’re a returning customer or new customer. Your treated like crap equally
Thought I would give them a try and…
Thought I would give them a try and used the mail in cash to save money. Ordered $210 of auto flowering and that was 3 months ago. I am one of those Heroes fighting covid on the front lines (so what). I wanted to grow my own and thought after my order was mailed out it would be fine. Well learned my lesson on that. Just cannot trust a lot of these companies. For my money I will go back to AMS. Not much of a assortment there but, they have always followed up and made good any problems. Could not even get this people to respond.
Yeah total joke
Yeah total joke. Right from the ridiculous little vessel that unless you have dexterity of a contortionist, find it difficult to open. And then the foam inside ejects your seeds out like James Bond. Anyway, I contacted them about my situation. Too bad. They said they’d provide two seeds on my next order. Top it off I received no free seeds as advertised. Shameful customer support. Don’t be surprised, there’s enough bad reviews here had I known, I wouldn’t have ordered. Save your frustration!! Greenhouse seeds are much more pro. Ripper seeds too! if you have some disability with opening tiny, awkward containers, be warned these things are brutal..
Paid for Feminized and they gave me Males.
Bunch of Assho. they sent me male seeds when i paid for feminized, and they wont make good on what they gave me. Should have know they are scammers when the place in in Toronto, where so am i and i pay American pricing?? That doesn’t make sense to me except they are scamming people. And Selling Male SEEDS ,Jerks, behind on my crops now because of them. Now they won’t reply to my emails like the issue is resolved. I would find another seed bank!
So to start
So to start. They are indeed official retailers of seed banks you can find them listed on Barney’s farm. There parent company is CC Nexus who is also listed on many seedbanks websites as official distributors. However, they constantly have wrong information regarding genetics. Example Mamba Negra CBD by Blimburn. They had it listed as a CBD/THC 1:1 balance when in actuality its 10-20% CBD while only 1-2% THC. Now this may not seem like a big deal but I’ve called them out on this CONSTANTLY!! Order a strain thinking it’s sativa to find out after the fact it’s indica and the flowering isn’t 10 weeks but 8. The worst part is when you call them out they refuse to take blame and instead blame those who created the genetics, saying the seed banks are wrong. Used to be my go to place but they’ve become completely useless
Who are these jerks?
Bought autoflower seeds and they wont flower.
I wish I had read reviews on these guys beforehand.
Tempted find these guys warehouse and have a little chat with them.
Ordered 10 regular seeds received 5…
Ordered 10 regular seeds received 5 feminized. I wanted the regular not feminized they asked for a picture of the unopened seeds after 5 days waiting for a response, then said I had 2 options keep the seeds and get 20% of next order or I could send the seeds back and after they received the seeds in good condition they would resend, I would of had to wait for a package to arrive wait for them to receive and then hope they send back the right seeds or even send anything. They are not good only reason I ordered was I wanted male auto flower seeds for a breeding project and male auto seeds are hard to find and sold out in places I looked. I knew it was a gamble with them the seeds were from another bank that they distribute but in some cases they been known to remove other original seed banks packaging so they can possibly send there own bad seeds and make extra cash the crooks. I am not shocked at all the bad reviews all over the place I knew they had bad feedback, but I’ve found hundreds and hundreds of bad reviews all over the net. There own genetics are rip offs as I grew out some autos from there line a few caylex clusters here and there for bud sites. Never again for me them crooks im 64 years old with one leg and poor health i can not afford to lose money nor do I got the time for the dispair they caused, I had my area ready to go and needed the seeds asap they did not care or apologize. I feel for the person they send returned seeds to all the extra travel and seeds being bounced around for sure results in poor germination which seems to be a common complaint along with not receiving at all or getting the wrong seeds like me and them removing original breeder packaging. I will be warning others there name will be ruined every were.

True North Seedbank Review 2021
This worldwide shipping, along with the incredible variety of strains that they are able to offer, quickly launch True North seed bank to the top of the list when considering the best online seed banks.

Reputation and History Review
True North seed bank is a highly respectable international company with a professional demeanor and desire to bring the best possible seeds to their customers! They do everything that they can to ensure that the strains they offer are the highest quality, ship wherever their customers are, offer a good value, and make sure that their customers are satisfied.
They offer unbeatable guarantees on delivery and quality that give buyers confidence. After all, they have been running a successful business with multiple branches for several years now, so they must be doing something right!
Seed Selection and Quality – True North Seedbank Review
Although True North does not develop any of their own seed strains, they sell an incredible variety of strains from more than 60 top quality breeders. Because they are not breeders themselves, their staff has plenty of free time to research the best new emerging strains from the highest quality breeders and negotiate the best prices so that their customers are always getting quality products at a reasonable price point.
However, this does have some drawbacks, as buying directly from a breeder like Crop King Seeds (Worldwide), Nirvana Shop (Exluding Australia), or Sensi Seeds (EU Countries only) is the best way to ensure the freshest seeds, every time. It is also often cheaper to buy directly from the breeder because you are cutting out the middle man.
A seller like True North is a good option if there is a certain strain that you really want, but it isn’t available online or the breeder doesn’t ship to your country. It may end up costing you a little bit more in the long run, but at least you’ll be able to get your hands on the particular strain that you wanted.

Customer service representatives are easy to get in touch with, professional, and genuinely want to help solve your problem. They are available by phone 7 days a week from 10 AM to 7 PM EST, or you may chat with them through email.
All accounts seem to show that True North’s customer service department is friendly and helpful in answering any questions you have and attempting to solve any problems you may run into with your order.
True North’s website is very easy to use and has an attractive design. Its products are organized in easy-to-follow ways, and its search function is one of the best we’ve seen on any online seed bank shop so far. It allows you to search for best selling strains, top rated strains, or strains from certain breeders and further allows you to narrow your search by flowering time, effect, plant height, grow location, flavor, yield, THC content, and many other parameters.
These tools make it easy to find exactly what you are looking for, or find something that fits your needs perfectly that you may have never even heard of!
The website also has a special section devoted to all the promotions that are currently being run, where customers can enter to win free seeds, apply discount codes to their orders, or even enter contests and sweepstakes run by other breeders. These promotions really help customers get the most value out of their purchases and also adds an extra element of excitement to buying your seeds.
They also offer a loyalty program that allows customers to amass loyalty points and earn discounts on subsequent orders, which can save a significant amount of money for customers who shop there often.
Price and Payment Methods
True North does offer a wide variety of payment methods, including Credit Cards and Bitcoin.
The payment methods that they do accept are as follows:
• Credit – Must be Visa or Mastercard approved for international use. This also includes reloadable cards or gift cards.
• International Money Order – Only accepted from customers in Canada or the United States
• E-mail Transfers – Only accepted from customers within Canada
• Cash, Bank Transfer, Western Union or MoneyGram.
• Cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Potcoin.
As you can see, some of these options offer reasonable anonymity, while others offer none at all. Bitcoin is the most recommended currency for online seed buyers, it is anonymous and has very low fees.
