CG AUSTRALIA SEEDS REVIEW – IS IT A SCAM?
Cannabis is becoming very popular among Australians, especially for medicinal purposes. In line with this trend, business are slowly emerging in the country to meet the demand for cannabis seeds.
When searching to buy Cannabis Seeds quite a few companies do appear, but when you go to make a purchase, it seems like every one is just passing you off to an overseas site? For example, weedseedsaustralia are obviously an affiliate site for herbies seeds which come from Europe. So you go there expecting to buy from an Aussie company with fast domestic Aussie shipping, only to find out you’re paying overseas and waiting up to 4+ weeks for your seeds and with all the risks of customs confiscation etc etc.
IS IT LEGAL TO BUY CANNABIS SEEDS?
The laws are still so vague in Australia, that most legit companies do not want to deal with the risks. There are however a few around who have found a bit of a loophole. Cannabis Seeds on their own are actually not technically illegal. It’s just a seed…. But as soon as you put that seed in water to germinate it, you’re suddenly committing a crime. Unbeleivable really…. So some companies sell the seeds for collectable purposes with no referencing to the growing aspects of the seed. If you think about it, that makes sense. Who says you can’t own a seed? It’s not illegal to own a seed, and even if it was do you think the authorities are going to bring in the SWAT team on you?!
One Aussie co that appears to be having a proper go, is CG Australia. So we thought what better way than to give em a try and find out for ourselves?
NEGATIVE REVIEW AT TOP OF GOOGLE?
If you’re trying to figure out of CG is a scam, well judging by this article at the top of the search engine, one would certainly think so! This article references a thread on reddit from someone seeking info on CG in order to buy Cannabis Seeds from Australia. The redditt post had a few comments, but none actually claiming CG was scam, even though a couple were just disgruntled customers by the sound of it. Despite this, the weedseedsaustralia post concluded that CG Australia was indeed a scam and that instead you should buy from them!
OK, nothing to see right folks! 🙂
Not so fast!
Upon closer look it’s obvious the article is a hit piece from a competitor trying to discredit CG Australia.
Firstly, an article slandering a service but written by the competition? Yeah, that’s not exactly credible is it? So we tried posting a positive review in the comment section of that page….. Low and behold, it never appeared on the article! Of course they have a vested interest to keep things negative for CG.
COLLECTIBLE SEEDS – DO THEY GERMINATE? AND WHAT ABOUT THE GENETICS?
CG Australia state in their T&C’s that seeds are sold strictly for souvenir/collectable/storage purposes only. Therfore germination and growing support is not offered.
While this is understandable it’s a bit concerning when you’re spending a fair wack of money on your precious gems…. This also begs the question:
“Are they just using that loophole to pass off worth less crappy seeds with poor genetics?”
WE HAD TO PUT IT TO THE TEST DIDN’T WE!
We purchased 2 lots of seeds. The first was Guerilla Glue Feminized. A 5 pack was $75 + $5 shipping. Placing the order was simple. Just add to cart, name/address then pay with direct deposit or crypto. We paid with direct deposit via our bank. Was great to see it was an Australian account we were paying into. 2 days later we received an email from CG with the tracking number. 3 days after that, the package arrived in the post. Shweeet!
We germinated them using the paper towel method. Just a couple seeds on wet paper towel in a ziplock bag. They germinated in 2 days. Nice strong, healthy little germs. On the 3rd day we planted in a small pot with 70% coco coir / 30% perlite then and then watered with hydroponic nutrien at an EC of 1.0 for the first few days increasing to 2.0 after a week then transplanted into largeer pots.
These things went totally balistic! As it was late September when we started, they took 2 full months to veg, but we’re talking 7 foot tall bushy bohemith plants with a base stem almost the size of my wrist. We were very happy to see that all plants were indeed female as expected. Another 6 weeks later and each plant over 1 pound dried! Legit high quality resounous, flavourful Cannabis. Un-fricken beleivable!
On the 2nd round, we purchased Auto White Widow. Same results for germination (100% germ) and this time the plants started flowering after 4 weeks (about the 5th node). We were harvesting 5 weeks later from then, and the buds were super dense, crystally and flavourful!
Conclusion: Yeah, don’t worry about the ‘souvenir/collectable’ thing… these guys are obviously sourcing high quality genetics….
ARE THE REVIEWS ON THEIR SITE LEGIT?
CG claim to have over 600+ customer reviews the vast majority of which are overwhelmingly positive. You can find these at the bottom of the buy cannabis seeds page.
Some would say, they’re too positive and they’re likely just fake… Honestly, have a squiz through them and you’ll see they look pretty genuine. Yes everyone seems super stoked but they appear to be different writing styles….
Anyway, we posted a review on the guerilla glue fem seeds page and it’s still there today in the same format that we provided it, so we know for certain it’s legit. Of course we did give it 5 stars so not sure if CG would post something with 1 star! Although you can see they do have 2 star, 3 star and 4 star reviews also all published, so that’s a pretty good sign actually…
Upon closer look the few negative reviews typically relate to poor germination so that is somewhat of a concern given CG will likely not discuss germination but then again, does the person actually know what they’re doing?
In conclusion, CG Australia is not a scam and is a legitimate cannabis seed supplier in Australia. As with any business, negative reviews will exist, but overwhelmingly, the reviews on CG are positive. Be careful in trusting reviews on competitor websites. They obviously have a vested interest in descrediting a genuine Aussie seed service. Don’t listen to the naysayers!
