Rating: 4.7 of 5 stars
Sensible Seeds is a UK-based seedbank that carries a wide variety of seeds from many well-known breeders. Not to be confused with the similarly-named "Original Sensible Seed Company" (originalsensible.com), sensibleseeds.com is its own entity with no connection to the others.
After buying my VERY first pack of seeds on eBay for a great price & somehow getting very lucky with the quality, I branched out & tried Sensible Seeds as my first real seed bank. I was in the market for something high in CBD & low in THC that autoflowers, which is not easy to find. Sensible had a fairly great selection of options in this category. I spent a few weeks researching my options & finally settled on Industrial Plant Auto CBD by Dinafem. They also had Tonic Ryder from World of Seeds, Baby Boom by Kannabia & CBD Auto Compassion Lime by Dutch Passion to name a few of the strains that ended up in my Wish List. You can narrow your search according to traits like yield, feminized/regular, autoflowering/photoperiod, harvest time & THC content which makes it super easy to find what you're looking for. In addition to well-known breeders like DJ Short & Mephisto, they have their own line of "Premium Seeds" which includes medical-grade strains like Night Nurse & Old Man Socks as well as a number of bargain strains from lesser known breeders such as Irie Vibe, Black Skull & OG Raskal Seeds.
When it was time to check out, the process went very smoothly. I was able to use my preferred payment method & chose the $13 shipping option (where they remove the seed from the breeder packet & put it in a plain envelope for stealth). They offer a ton of more expensive & elaborate shipping options that I won't get into here so as not to blow their cover, but some of them go up to the $80 price range and get pretty complicated. But I can see how you'd want that extra assurance if you were placing a large order & needed to ensure your order made it through customs. I was only ordering 1 seed so I went with the "cheap" option. 😁
My seed arrived in a plain white envelope about 2 weeks after ordering, which was much faster than expected. Might've even been a bit sooner than 2 weeks. I wasn't overly impressed with the stealth of the packaging but it apparently was good enough to make it to me so I can't complain too much. With only the one seed I put all my hopes into it & really prayed it would sprout. Couldn't get it to sink in the germination cup for hours...bad sign. Ugh. Just my luck. But finally it took off & became viable, growing into a healthy female autoflowering plant! (See grow log here).
In conclusion, I give Sensible Seeds a 4.7 out of 5 stars. Their selection is huge & shipping time was super fast. I was highly pleased they took my payment method & I received a viable seed, but stealth of shipping could've used a tiny bit of work. And the price for that one seed was a little exorbitant. Think I ended up paying a total of $27 for the seed when shipping cost was factored in, and the shipping didn't come with tracking or the guarantee of a re-ship if the seed was seized. But I can't overstate how important it is that they took my payment method since it's the only one I had. You should definitely give them a shot if you're looking for a reliable seed bank with a huge selection.
