Is Cannabis legal?

  • Cannabis, unfortunately does not follow a strict line of being legal or illegal across the globe, and in fact can vary considerably in each country depending on its use and form.
  • Whilst it is illegal to own or possess the drug in the vast majority of countries around the world, many countries have in fact decriminalised possession in small quantities, with the reasoning that it isn't being used to sell or supply.
  • In the UK, it is actually legal to own cannabis seeds, such as the ones available on this website, but it is 100% ILLEGAL to grow or attempt to grow the cannabis plant from these seeds unless you have a licence from the Home Office.
  • WE STRICTLY ADVISE THAT PURCHASED CANNABIS SEEDS ARE NOT USED TO GROW CANNABIS PLANTS AS THIS PRACTICE IS ILLEGAL.

Drug licensing factsheet: cannabis, CBD and other cannabinoids

This factsheet represents the Home Office’s view on the domestic control measures applicable to cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD) and controlled cannabinoids. It is intended as a resource for existing licensees and prospective licensees who may need to apply for a licence, having fully assessed any proposals they may wish to make in the context of this guidance and that provided by other regulators.

There are two separate licensing regimes relating to cannabis cultivation, according to whether the varieties are high or low THC (as differentiated in the Misuse of Drugs (Fees) Regulations 2010). This factsheet may also be read in conjunction with published guidance relating to low-THC Industrial Hemp cultivation and use of non-controlled hemp products from fibre and seed.

Important Note: This is intended as general guidance only; it is not legal advice. Anyone in doubt should seek their own independent legal advice to ensure they are compliant with any relevant legislation.

Cannabis around the World

As is well known, certain countries permit the possession of cannabis in certain circumstances, such as the Netherlands and Uruguay. More recently, a number of states in the USA have enacted legalisation of the plant.
