Out of the other contest winners, I exchanged a ton of PM's with FeralA9x - who had a similar but even shittier experience with them. Also Stinky Snid and OldSchool64 had serious issues getting replies and getting their orders.
    Anyway- I eventually walked away from the whole issue and told Teddy I was content with that.

    This was before I stumbled on that CKS post accusing me of lying though.
    I haven't raised the issue with 420 since. The mods get around. They are very busy but they'll read these threads eventually and if there's enough stink they'll contact CKS about it. It'll work itself out. What goes around comes around. Personally I'm mainly just hoping get a chance to make CKS apologize for that post. Other than that- I don't expect them to suddenly turn into a good seed company or into nice people. I know that they are neither. I'll never deal with them again, and I will certainly continue to tell anyone who asks, to just not bother with this company. There are lots of good seedbanks out there.
    My 2 cent on the topic;
    When I claimed my POTM prize, aside from the costumer service representative being clueless regarding what 420s POTM contest is, everything went great. I mean really.

    Ones they figured out that I'm really entitled for the prize, everything went smoothly. They even packed my seeds along with the CKS POTM prize. Arrived within a week from B.C to Ontario.

    But I did hear alot of negative stuff towards then.

    re: Why buy Crop King Seeds

    What's up 420 family.... That's right "Family"

    I've gotten a couple orders from CKS without any issues. Delivery was fast and I received everything I ordered. Everything was packaged nicely and my first batch of seeds came with these little cheap flashlights... Pretty cool idea. Everything else was sent separately. The second batch came stuffed in a whistle.. I had fun making loud noises and screaming stranger danger.. Good times, thanx CKS..

    If you asked me how I felt about there products or there genetics or the way they treat my family i would politely answer "no comment" I guess nobody told them about all the American seed banks with the best genetics money could buy.

    re: Why buy Crop King Seeds

    If you are going to grow why waste your time and MONEY on subpar genetics? A grower of 30 years wouldn't touch CKS and I see why now, from his grows.

    They are a good learning seed bank I guess and their smoke is decent, just the genetics aren't top notch, why not grow top notch stuff....

    Delivery in Canada with tracking is always 100%, after that it can go either way!

    Edit: yep some great USA breeders/seedbanks but they are all available easily in Canada

    re: Why buy Crop King Seeds

    I had a very similar experience with them when I won the POTM back in January, didn't send what I ordered and received 6 seeds of a strain I would never even think about growing which was supposed to be $100 value, I didn't really worry about it at the time as it was a comp but thought I would let them know the wrong thing was sent. I then received an email back from them telling me that i was lucky to get anything where i live and maybe i should think about changing countries before ordering from them again. They go on about how they are the biggest seedbank in the world and have been running for 20 years, clearly stated on their website not that long ago est 2009 yet when you ask them about their genetics their reply is "we will have to ask the breeder", so they don't breed their own seeds and have very limited selection? massive seedbank That was just a little part of it but to me is one of the worst customer experiences i have ever had with any company If i ever win anything in the future i want nothing to do with them at all and i wouldn't recommend them to anyone

    I near pee'd myself laughing lol, so what they r saying is if they sent u the seeds u "actually" wanted, they would never have arrived Why buy Crop King Seeds. The more I read about their attitude the less I want anything to do with them.

    re: Why buy Crop King Seeds

    I prefer the US seed banks.... No worries about customs, shipping is quick and they ship them in the breeder packs. They seem to get new release months before the international banks too.. Most of the seed breeders are from the US anyways.

    On the site- up at the top right if I remember correctly, you'll see a little tab saying Español- click it and you'll get English.

    I've seen quite a few stories of bad service and crap attitude from Bonza as well, enough that I wouldn't order from them. But as with CKS, most people do get their seeds and are satisfied with them. I haven't had first hand experience with Bonza, + they're a sponsor- so I respect that and just generally just keep my personal opinion to myself.


    I'm just a bit fussy or naive that way. I like seedbanks that care. I'd like to believe the people I'm giving my money to are actually decent human beings, and are personally invested in the strains and care about cannabis in general, on top of just having seeds for sale and wanting to make lots of money.
