Ordering Cannabis Products
Bro you want to got to prison? In this here land there is no distinctions made between drugs and cannabis.
Well, the thing is if it’s disguised in tea or gummy form it’s most likely to go under the radar if carrying in luggage (which I’ve done multiple times before), but I’ve never tried ordering so I’m curious, I was thinking maybe a bag of cannabis tea would pass as just regular tea and some gummies would pass as vitamins since a ton of people order that, but I don’t know.

Sensible Seeds is "One Stop Shop". I am their customer for the last 4 years and they have never disappointed me. Product quality is always great. Deliver speed – even during these pandemic times they surprised me with their stealth speed. And yes their customer service is second to none!
10/10 I would say.

Amazing customer service, huge selection, great prices, tons of freebies, ultra-fast delivery. This was my first order and because of my location I was worried to say the least. I checked out all the reviews of different seed sellers, reviewed web post regarding shipping and payment problems and decided to take a leap of faith with Sensible Seeds. I was NOT disappointed! They are responsible, honest, and professional. All my whiny e-mails were responded to promptly and professionally. I choose Courier delivery out of an abundance of caution and boy was it the right decision. My order arrived in the USA within five days of shipment and that includes a day off for the holidays. It literally flew through customs in a matter of hours and was delivered a day earlier than tracking estimated. Did I mention freebies? I reviewed all the promos on the website and ended up with all the strains I wanted and more than double the number of seeds I paid for! They now have a lifelong customer. If you’re on the fence regarding ordering, make the leap. You will not be disappointed. They all deserve the highest praise and a big raise. especially Charly! Keep up the great work and I’ll be back soon.

Customer service was over the top. They showed deep concern for making sure all items would be delivered without incident, offering many options for my large order and we exchanged several emails. response time was always within 24 hours. Everything arrived quickly, intact and well packaged. Several unexpected freebies were also included.
Ordered Ghost Train Haze #1 Regular from Rare Dankness—5/5 seeds popped within 72 hours of being planted directly into soil. Genetics proved to be spot on. Yes there were males. Harvested 2 lbs from the largest outdoor plant.
Ordered Zkittlz Fem from Advanced Seeds—-Again 5/5 seeds popped within 72 hours of being planted directly into soil. Genetics proved to be correct with several slightly variable phenos and one plant that was quite purple （just awesome）. Ordered 10 more of these seeds for next year. Top colas were just enormous.. Averaged 2+ lbs per plant outdoors.
guest Canada, April 2021
Very impressive first order with Sensible. It took a little over 2 weeks to arrive, which is more than acceptable with all the Covid nonsense messing things up everywhere you look. The strains I ordered arrived in the original breeders packaging and the freebies were amazing. I ordered 15 seeds in total and received 20+ freebies of some high-quality strains that I can’t wait to try. I’m germinating a few now so I can’t speak to germination rates or overall viability of the seeds quite yet, but Sensible sure looks good in my books. I was hoping to buy from a Canadian seedbank this time around but none of the strains I wanted were in stock. So I turned to Sensible and they sure came through. I’ll definitely order again.
guest United States, January 2021
I order all my seed from Sensible Seed. Well staffed, trustworthy, and will help through the whole process. I always receive my orders very prompt. I have no problems at all with their service. Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.

guest United Kingdom, July 2020

Lebanon’s economy is going to pot — in a good way, it hopes
On a mild September morning, about two dozen girls and women, swathed in brightly colored shawls that revealed only their eyes, picked through a verdant field. With sickles that glinted in the waning summer sun, they reaped the blanket of spiky-leaved stalks stretching to the foot of the nearby hills.
The crop was cannabis. And it’s a lifeline, advocates say, that Lebanon urgently needs.
The country is scrabbling to escape an existential, multilayered crisis that has gutted the currrency to less than a quarter of its previous value, brought the specter of shortages to a place renowned for its excess and spurred a full-scale rejection of the country’s ruling order.
Most of all, Lebanon is broke. It produces very little, relying on imports for almost everything, and dollars are scarce.
In its desperate drive for foreign currency, it’s trying to develop homegrown industries, including taking advantage of what is arguably its most famous export: Lebanese hash.
This tiny Mediterranean country of 6.8 million people is, after all, responsible for 6% of the global cannabis supply, making it the world’s third-largest exporter of the stuff, according to a report last year by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime — this, despite the fact that cannabis had until recently been illegal.
The Lebanese are used to eating plenty of meat, but the country’s economic woes have made it a luxury as rampant inflation takes its toll.
In April, with the country slammed by the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lame-duck government still found time to legalize cannabis for medicinal and industrial purposes, making Lebanon the first Arab nation to do so.
The move now needs to be codified and implemented. The idea, officials say, is for the state to set up a regulatory authority that would issue licenses to private companies for farming, processing and selling cannabis and its derivative products. That could reel in potentially $1 billion in revenue, attract fresh investments in the country and generate new tax receipts.
The village of Yammouneh is one of the focal points of this plan. It unfurls around a placid lake, which perfectly reflects a landscape of tree-studded mountains and green fields.
As you enter Yammouneh, graffiti greets you on a nearby shack, calling for America’s death and pledging fealty to “the Resistance” — a reference to Hezbollah, the Iran-backed Shiite armed faction and political party, which dominates this northeastern village of some 5,000 people, as well as much of Lebanon’s eastern regions. (Washington designates Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.)
Officially, Hezbollah is against hash; it was one of the few groups to object to legalization. But the Party of God, as it’s also known, appears to have reached a detente with cannabis farmers, said Hilal Khashan, a professor of political science at the American University of Beirut.
“The state can’t stop them. Hezbollah can’t stop them and needs the support of this constituency. And these people are living off of cannabis,” Khashan said in a phone interview.
Amid coronavirus, a poor economy and the aftermath of a deadly explosion, Lebanon marks 100 years
He added that Hezbollah recruits members in these areas and also benefits from facilitating the smuggling of marijuana across the border.
“Whether they have an understanding or not, the cannabis production would continue,” Khashan said. “So why not have an understanding with them? . Publicly [Hezbollah] says it’s against them, but that’s because they don’t want the state to enter and take a cut.”
Ali Shreyf, a village notable, or mukhtar, represents a good example of that understanding with Hezbollah. In a visit to a field a few minutes’ drive from his home in Yammouneh, the trim 50-year-old with more salt than pepper in his hair pointed to an apple orchard standing alongside stalks of cannabis.
“You have two brothers. The one in Hezbollah plants apples, the other one plants marijuana. It’s a matter of beliefs,” he said.
Shreyf’s business is an inherited one: His father began growing cannabis around the 1920s. The trade bloomed during Lebanon’s devastating 15-year civil war, which ended in 1990.
Afterward, the state launched an eradication campaign, but those efforts foundered in 2011, when the conflict in neighboring Syria began and forced Lebanon’s security services to focus on new threats. (In 2017, nearly 100,000 acres in Lebanon were planted with cannabis, according to U.N. statistics.)
The state also tried offering incentives to farmers to cultivate other crops. But the problem is that cannabis is easy to grow; it thrives in Yammouneh’s rocky soil, cool climate and high humidity. Not much else does, and besides, the profits wouldn’t come close.
Around Shreyf, the women in their shawls continued their reaping, the wind heady with the fresh scent of cut grass and the earthiness of marijuana.
“Yalla, girls! Yalla!” shouted Muhannad, the foreman, who declined to give his surname. Like most of the field workers here, he’s from the Syrian city of Raqqa, once Islamic State’s declared capital, and escaped as a refugee to Lebanon.
“I have 25 workers in my crew. We’ll harvest anywhere from 50 to 60 dunams [about 12 to 15 acres] of cannabis per day,” he said.
Once cut, the stalks remain on the ground for a week to dry before being transported to warehouses. There they are cured until late November, when the cold makes the plant’s sticky resin brittle and ready for sifting.
The plants are placed inside a drum with mechanical rollers that shake off some of the resin into keyf, cannabis powder that can then be pressed into blocks of hash. Higher-quality keyf — which means “pleasure” in Arabic — is also extracted by rubbing the plants against a super-fine silk cloth or mesh.
Half-pound blocks of keyf are sold locally or smuggled abroad by traffickers who take hash overland to Jordan and Saudi Arabia or via Syria’s ports to Africa and Europe,
Smugglers have had to switch techniques to evade detection, Shreyf said.
“They used to put them under fruits,” he said. “Then they planted them in electric appliances. When that was discovered, they put hash inside stones and wheel wells of cars.”
A cannabis farmer can make between $10,000 to $15,000 a year, Shreyf said. The smugglers make the big profits, estimated to be $1 billion to $2 billion collectively.
But keyf is not the only use for the plant. “People use this for rope, paper currency, even clothes,” Shreyf said, adding: “We use it for nothing.”
He took out a strip of hemp. “Try to break it,” he said to a visiting reporter. A few vigorous tugs later, the strip remained unbroken.
Residents of Beirut hoping to rebuild homes and shops after the Aug. 4 blast are desperate for glass, even though fragments of it are everywhere.
Because legalization has yet to be codified, Shreyf’s activities technically remain a criminal offense. But he doesn’t care, and instead sees legalization as a ploy by Lebanon’s notoriously corrupt political class to benefit cronies.
“They’ve stolen everything except for the cannabis,” he said. “Now they want that, too.”
Supporters of the new law, including Ali Shoman, an official pushing for the creation of a cannabis growers syndicate, said legalization would help farmers.
“Is it better to enter the house through the window or the door? The cannabis they’re planting now they can’t bring out legally, nor is it used to produce alternative products,” he said.
Antoine Habchi, one of the architects of the law, agreed.
“Who is benefiting now? Only the distributor, and they can do that because of political cover,” the lawmaker said, adding that a raft of Canadian and Chinese companies had already expressed interest in using Lebanese cannabis for oils, perfumes and other products.
“When farmers work legally and the merchant works with them, then the state would have to deal with them,” Habchi said. “Through the law the farmer is liberated.”
But the plan faces several snags.
One is that the law allows cannabis containing an as-yet-unspecified percentage of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the mind-altering compound found in pot. Lebanese cannabis contains up to 18% THC, a relatively high proportion, potentially forcing farmers to switch to a different seed.
Another problem is that the bill bars anyone with a criminal record from obtaining a cannabis license. That would in effect rule out most of the current farmers and smugglers, said Talal Shreyf, Yammouneh’s mayor. (He and Ali Shreyf belong to one of the village’s dominant clans.)
“If people here are wanted, they’re wanted for growing marijuana. Whoever makes such a decision is crazy, because these are the same people who are planting,” he said.
