For today the Ukrainian Legislation allows buying, selling and storing hemp, marijuana or cannabis seeds. Cannabis seeds are not included in the list of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors that are in illegal circulation on the territory of Ukraine.

Note that cultivation of hemp in Ukraine without a license is prohibited and entails both administrative and criminal liability.

The existing “Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs” (as amended on March 25, 1972) defines:

Article 1:

b) “Cannabis” means the tops of a cannabis plant with flowers or fruits (except seeds and leaves, unless accompanied by the tops) from which no resin has been extracted, whatever the name.
c) “Cannabis plant” means any plant of the genus Cannabis.
d) “Cannabis Resin” means separated, untreated or purified resin from a cannabis plant.

It follows that cannabis seeds are not a narcotic drug or a precursor to drugs and are not on the list of narcotic substances, so they are free to use in many countries. They can be bought, sold, exchanged, etc. However, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the laws of your country regulating “drug trafficking”.

All seeds are sold as souvenirs only. Due to the fact that some countries legally allow growing of hemp seeds some specifics are documented. This data is normally distributed via the World Wide Web and is available internationally. It is supplied to us by the breeder. SeedsGear can accept no responsibility if you choose to break the law. Please don’t.
