CG Australia Review – Cannabis Seeds in Australia? 33


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 for Cannabis Seeds from Australia quite a few companies appear, but when you go to make a purchase, they send you 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 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.   


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.   Unbelievable 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?   


If you’re trying to figure out if CG AUSTRALIA is a scam, you’ll likely see this article at the top of the search engine.    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. 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!  🙂

Upon closer look it’s obvious the Weed Seeds Australia article is a hit piece from a competitor trying to discredit CG Australia.   



Firstly, an article slandering a service but written by the competition?    After our experience with CG (see below), we tried posting a positive review in the comment section of that page…..  It never appeared on the article!   Of course they have a vested interest to keep things negative….



CG Australia state in their T&C’s that seeds are sold strictly for souvenir/collectable/storage purposes only.  Therefore germination and growing support is not offered. 

While this is understandable it’s a bit concerning when you’re spending a fair wack 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 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….



Is CG Australia a scam?


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 naysayer


  1. Very satisfied with my purchase. Very fast delivery.
    Thank you.

  2. I’ve bought from CG seeds a few times now and everything done the way they say! Prompt service and emails and great germ rate on the beans over 95%!! Totally worth wile and not a scam!! Which some other sites can’t say!!! Don’t doubt !! Do it!!

  3. I’m very happy with CG , my seeds arrived within a week.

  4. I’m very happy being able to get seeds within Australia now. Communication, excellent, and arrival of seeds within 2 days….I highly recommend them, and I will purchase again.

  5. A little late on delivery but arrived safely, it did say free seeds with this purchase but I didn’t receive them only the ones I ordered, other then that I am interested to see how the seeds go and would use this site again.

  6. Very happy with price, quality, communication, and turn around time. Fantastic stuff team, will definitely be back to see what else you have.

  7. I gave up on trying to order beans in from overseas seed sites.

    I’m 70 years of age…old Bondi boy who started smoking in 1971.
    32 years of Hydge experience…always top shelf genetics.
    Nowadays, most if not all seed suppliers overseas don’t want to know about Aus. Too hard..our border security guys are very good at what they do.
    I had some time ago tried a few “Aussie” sites…all bullshit fronts for some sus overseas seed place.
    Pay by Crypto…NO CC. NO Guarantee your beans will turn up…and no reposting your order if it fails to arrive
    Same deal for MSNL.com….Sensi Seeds….TH Seeds…etc etc.

    NOT SO with CGAUSTRALIA….this sites is genuine, 100%.
    I have placed 4 orders with these guys, pay by EFT..Fantastic, too easy.
    Beans turned up in 3 to 4 days.😀😀😀
    5 x Bubble Gum, 5 x Gsc, 5 x OG Kush, 5 x Bruce Banner.

    I am fully confident these beans will sprout when I’m ready for them.
    Top marks to CG Australia…way to go guys !!!

    Thank you!

  29. Have been looking for a reliable Australian website that can deliver seeds direct to me, very trustworthy would 100% recommend

  30. No way they are legit. Well they do send seeds but you simply have no idea what they send you.
    Purchased thc and cbd seeds.
    When I asked simply if they had my order I got a barrage of abuse.
    I then got a replacement for the thc as they had run out.
    6 months down the track I ended up with 2 thc plants.
    Who knows if they are both indica that I ordered.
    They didn’t answer my email asking for replacement so I put a review on their page. That review doesn’t show up so they must remove the bad ones.
    They seen my review straight away and sent me an email within one minute yet didn’t have time previously.
    They offered a discount if I buy more seeds. Lol.
    Yeh right. Get another load of dodgy seeds.
    I wouldn’t buy again from this company

  31. Def legit. Purchased 3 times and keep going back for more! Genetics are tops. I tried weedseedsaustralia (Herbies) last year…. Got 1 lot through but other was confisgated by customs.:-( $150 gone… no help. Will keep using CG.

    1. Can I ask how you managed to get your seeds ? I cannot seem too be able to contact them ..
