Legal notice

Cannabis seeds are not regulated under the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, signed in New York on 30 March 1961, as amended by the Geneva Protocol of 25 March 1972, and ratified by the Spanish state.

The Single Convention sets out which part or parts of the Cannabis sativa L. plant are regulated; the flowering or fruiting tops of the cannabis plant, as well as the resin obtained from the cannabis plant, but explicitly excludes the seeds. The seeds, therefore, do not form part of the legal concept of cannabis and are omitted from the ConventionÔÇÖs Schedules.

Cannabis sativa L. seeds do not contain the active substance delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Consequently, in accordance with the Single Convention, the seeds of the cannabis plant are neither regulated nor can they be classified as narcotic drugs.

In Spain, the sale, possession, and cultivation of cannabis seeds for personal use do not constitute a criminal offense. The Spanish Criminal Code classifies the cultivation of cannabis in order to promote, encourage, or facilitate its consumption by third parties as a criminal offense.

According to Spanish Supreme Court Public Prosecutor, Fernando SEQUEROS SAZATORNIL, the sale of cannabis for domestic cultivation in quantities apt for its personal consumption and self-supply for the same purpose (including the seeds reproduced from the plants) cannot, in any way, be considered to constitute a criminal offense.

The cultivation of cannabis for personal use may constitute an administrative offense pursuant to Article 36.18 of Organic Law 4/2015, of 30 March 2015, on the protection of public safety, if conducted in locations visible to the public.

The seeds sold by Guardian Seeds are sold for personal use exclusively by adults over 18 years old. Guardian Seeds markets the cannabis seeds as items intended for collection or genetic conservation with the specific restriction that they must not be used for any purposes that contravene current legislation.

According to the principle of mutual recognition, the European Union 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 rules (Regulation (EU) 2019/515, of 19 March 2019, on the mutual recognition of goods lawfully marketed in another Member State).

National laws applicable to cannabis seeds vary 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. Guardian Seeds does not want to incite anyone to violate a current law in their country.

Therefore, we urge purchasers who are not resident in Spain to familiarize themselves with applicable local legislation. Guardian Seeds encourages its customers to act responsibly.

Guardian Seeds accepts no liability for potential legal problems that could arise for purchasers and will not issue a refund for seeds confiscated or refused by the shipping agent or customs service while fulfilling their duties.

The fact that some of the descriptions allude to the effects of consumption does not, under any circumstances, mean that they should be consumed, as they are merely informative descriptions. Guardian Seeds accepts no liability for any decisions the purchaser may take based on this information due to possible typographical errors contained within the documents and graphics on the website or derived from the misuse of the seeds. The information is subject to periodic changes in its content, which may be added to, improved, corrected, or updated without notice.
