Expert Seeds was started by a group of friends and industry partners from across Europe. Brought together by their passion and expertise in growing marijuana, this green-thumbed group specializes in breeding exceptional hybrids using the most celebrated genetics in the world. Their creations have become favorites of many discerning growers, but are they only riding on the fame of legendary strains, or is the company a high-flyer that can potentially put Ireland, their place of origin, on the cannabis map?
Continue reading our detailed review to learn about Expert Seeds and the pros and cons of buying from them. At the end of the article, buyers can stack up the seed bank against its competitors, especially the big names in the industry, and tell if it is worthy of their business.
The Expert Seeds catalog consists of hybrids bred using cannabis classics from all over the world. Suitable for growers of consumable marijuana flowers, they offer a small selection of feminized and autoflower seeds that are primarily rich in THC, but there are a few great choices for CBD lovers as well. The breeder claims that they only use organic nutrients and insecticides to ensure the exceptional quality of the products.
Expert Seed Bank offers 64 connoisseur-grade seeds split into six assortments: automatic, Indica, Sativa, Gorilla, Cali Collection, and CBD Line. Handpicked to represent the best results of their selective breeding endeavor, the parentage and traits of the varieties available on their website are nothing short of impressive, and they have customer testimonials to prove it. Weed enthusiasts will be hard-pressed to find these strains elsewhere, except their partner retailers, perhaps.
If you haven’t tried any Expert Seed Bank creations yet, these varieties listed below are the perfect example of their outstanding work:
- Sweet Zombie
- Blueberry Glue Auto
- Expert Gorilla Auto
- Gorilla Cookies
- Gorilla x White Widow
- New York Diesel Auto
- OGesus Auto
- Expert Gorilla
- ZkittleZ Glue
- Northern Lights x Big Bud Auto
- Expert Mac 1
- Afghan Skunk
- Lemon Haze Auto
The CBD offerings of Expert Seeds have yet to attract a significant amount of attention despite their equally illustrious lineage and promising characteristics. Because we also haven’t tried growing them and using their flowers, MSFS cannot recommend these CBD-loaded strains just yet. That said, we do have high trust in this seed bank’s meticulous breeding program and are excited to try them in the future.
Buyers can contact Expert Seeds within seven days after receipt for any return concerns. Note that the purchased seeds can be returned for a full refund only if they are defective or if the wrong item has been received. Also keep in mind that any returns must have proof of postage from the post office as no refund will be processed if the item gets lost in transit. You can find more information on their return policy here.
Shipping and Delivery
Expert Seeds ships internationally except to Turkey, Brazil, Israel, Bulgaria, China, South East Asia due to certain cannabis prohibitions or shipping difficulties. If the company can ship to your location, make sure that you check local laws before purchasing to avoid delivery problems.
If Expert Seed Bank cannot ship to your country, we recommend checking their online retail partner www.seedsman.com. It ships to most countries and may be able to accommodate your order.
The order cutoff time is 2 pm (Irish Standard Time in the summertime and Greenwich Mean Time in winter months) except on holidays, so purchases placed after 2 pm are processed the next working day. Deliveries to Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom usually take around 2 to 5 days via standard or registered mail. The latter is the safer method as it is insured, can be tracked and must be signed for.
Expert Seeds uses plain brown, padded envelopes for small orders and boxes for larger ones. There is no indication on the container of its contents or where it came from, just stamps and the destination address.
While Expert Seed Bank receives plenty of positive feedback for their genetics, their still underdeveloped reputation suffers from their customer service’s mixed reviews. Many of the poor and bad ratings they got from TrustPilot are due to unsatisfactory experiences with the company’s customer ‘care’ team. Sadly, we also can’t sing praises to their non-existent customer support as our two e-mails were left unanswered after waiting for three business days for a response.
Ease of Website Navigation
Good usability of a website can turn visitors into potential buyers, which is something Expert Seed Bank got right. While not the prettiest around, expertseedbank.com is simple and easy to navigate, even for non-tech savvy cannabis enthusiasts. Additionally, searching for the right seed is straightforward thanks to Expert Seeds’ modest, 64-strain only catalog and single-page category display.
Price and Special Offers
Each product from Expert Seed Bank costs between $11.53 for one seed to $4,612.00 for bulk orders of 2000 pieces. If you’re on a budget, you’d be glad to know that this online store runs several promotions regularly. New buyers and those who pay using crypto get 15% off. Besides discounts, all orders come with free seeds. Buy any pack size and get the same number of seeds at no extra cost. Orders over €60 bound for European countries and over €75 for everywhere else qualify for free shipping as well.
Expert Seed Bank accepts payments via credit/debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, and Maestro) and Bitcoin. For over €500 purchases, they will also take bank transfers, postal orders, and Western Union payments.
Thank you for checking our reviews! If you recently bought cannabis seeds from an online store, we’d love to hear about your experience and what you think of their products and services. This will only take a few minutes but will save fellow weed growers from a lot of headaches later. It can also determine which seedbanks we should continue to work with.
