Bonza Seeds History

This UK seed bank got its start back in 2009. In 2017, it has grown to become a mega mall of cannabis. The mission of Bonza Seeds is to provide a one stop pick and mix shop where customers can buy as many or as few seeds as they like, all different strains and different breeders, without having to place multiple order on multiple sites and pay multiple shipping fees then wait for multiple packages to arrive!

Their idea simplifies the whole system, and they do a good job of delivering on it. It is much easier to go through Bonza when you want to order a wide variety of seeds than to source them all individually and wait for them to trickle in one at a time. If you’re someone who likes to grow a ton of different strains at once, Bonza may be the bank for you.

Bonza Seeds Reputation

Bonza has a solid reputation among cannabis enthusiasts. They are known for having low prices, excellent stealth shipping methods, and being a generally trustworthy company. Their packages may take a while to get to you, but they more than likely will get to you without being incident. Their interception rates are low, even in countries where customs are notoriously hard to get through. They have also come to be known as the marijuana mega mall, because of the wide variety of seeds you can choose from on their site. Customers appreciate the ability to buy as little as one single seed of a certain strain if they wish.

Seed Selection

Bonza stocks over 2,500 seeds at last count, which is an insane amount when you think about it. Some of the brands you can find there are Barney’s Farm, Dutch Passion, Moxie Seeds, BC Bud Depot, Cali Connection, CBD Crew, DNA Genetics, Paradise Seeds, Sensi Seeds, Pyramid Seeds, Nirvana Seeds, G-13 Labs, and others. They sell regular seeds, feminized seeds, and autoflowering seeds, as well as medical strains and seeds specifically bred to give extremely high yields.

You should definitely be able to find something you like at Bonza Seeds, and they probably even stock seeds from your favorite breeder. With their unique pick and mix system, it’s easy to stock up on strains you know you like and dip your toe in the water by buying a seed or two of a new strain just to experiment with. When you don’t have to commit to buying a full pack each time you want to try something new, there’s really not much to lose!

Product Quality

Because Bonza Seed Bank is a true seed bank that only resells other brand’s seeds and doesn’t breed its own, the quality of the seeds that you buy will depend on the quality standards of the brand that you’re buying from. If you need to know more about some of the brands that Bonza Seeds stocks like Nirvana Seeds or Sensi Seeds, you can check out our separate reviews of those brands.

There could be a lot of variation in quality from one brand to another, which has nothing to do with Bonza Seeds. Of course, seeds that are distributed by a reseller are always bound to be slightly more expensive and slightly less fresh than seeds that are bought directly from the breeder. Just the simple act of adding in that middleman takes the price up and the freshness down, since they have to ship the seeds to their location first and then ship them out to you, all while still making a bit of profit to keep it worth their while. It’s annoying, but if you can’t buy directly from your favorite breeder because they don’t ship to your country, don’t accept your preferred method of payment, or for other reasons, it’s just a necessary evil.

We always recommend buying directly from the breeder if you can, but sometimes that’s just not possible. In those cases, it’s important to find a reseller who meets your needs, ships to your country, accepts your preferred method of payment, stocks the strains you want from the brand you like, and delivers quickly with a reasonable markup. You don’t want to be buying old seeds that have been sitting in a storage room or warehouse since who knows when. You want fresh seeds that are on premises and ready to ship out, but have been properly stored to maintain their freshness and viability, and haven’t been sitting around for ages either.

In short, product quality will depend on the initial quality of the original product, but expect it to be a step down from that any time you’re buying from a reseller. Bonza Seed Bank has been known to only order certain items from their providers as they are ordered from the Bonza store, which ensures the maximum freshness of the products, but it can also mean a long wait for customers- sometimes as long as 3 weeks or more. If you need your seeds in a hurry, be sure to contact customer service to see if what you want is currently in stock or whether it will need to be special ordered.

Customer Service

Speaking of customer service, that brings us to our next point of review. The customer service team at Bonza Seeds is fairly attentive and friendly. You can often see them posting in cannabis related forums, which is nice to see them contributing to the community. They are also eager to help with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your order. Bonza Seeds maintains a large database of answers to frequently asked questions, so you may want to check there first to see if your question has already been addressed.

If you’ve checked the knowledge base but still have unanswered questions, it’s easy to get in contact with a customer service agent. In fact, a live chat window regularly pops up while you’re browsing the Bonza Seeds site that you could type your question directly into. If you don’t want to wait for that to happen, you can also open up a new customer support ticket on the knowledge base page. You’ll also be able to check on the status of your previously submitted tickets through this page as well.

Bonza Seeds Sales, Discounts, and Promotions

In addition to their lower than average prices, Bonza Seeds also runs regular sales and promotions to help customers save even more or even get free seeds. Currently there’s an offer up for 20% off of your total purchase that’s automatically applied during checkout. Be sure to check out their sales page before you place an order with Bonza so that you can be sure that you’re getting the best deal. You wouldn’t want to miss out on free seeds just because you forgot to check for a promotion!

Bonzaseeds.com Shopping Experience

The shopping experience at Bonza Seeds is a little bit disorganized, which is not a good thing when you have over 2,500 products in stock. There are search filters but they’re hard to get to and not that useful. There are also lots of pop ups that intrude while you’re trying to shop, asking you to do things like share Bonza on Facebook.

The seed breeders are all listed in one big list down the left hand side of the page in a small font, so you have to scroll through those to try and find the brand you want, every time. It’s a bizarre system. You can also only look at seeds from one brand at a time, unless you open a bunch of tabs in your browser. Overall, the user experience on this website could be a lot better and it needs some work. Here’s hoping Bonza takes our advice to heart and we see a total overhaul of the website sometime soon! If that happens, we will update our review accordingly.

Shipping Methods, Return Policy, and Payment Options

The shipping at Bonza Seed Bank is slow, but stealthy. They take great care with their packages to make sure that there is no reason any customs agent would be suspicious in any way. This may take a bit of extra time, but in our opinion, it’s worth it. They do also have shipping guarantees available which ensure that your package will be delivered to you regardless of loss, theft, or interception.

They ship worldwide without exception, and all orders ship with tracking numbers so that you can track your package through every stage of its journey. All seeds will be shipped in a SeedPod, Bonza’s proprietary packaging that keeps seeds safe during shipment. Bonza quotes its shipping times as 3 to 7 business days within Europe and 7 to 10 working days for everywhere else, but according to several customers, that estimate is frequently exceeded. Expect minor shipment delays when you order from Bonza Seeds.

If you need to make a return for a refund or exchange, just send back your unopened SeedPod within 28 days of receipt. Contact customer service to get the full instructions of where to send your package and to choose whether you’d like a refund or an exchange. Return shipping costs will be the responsibility of the customer.

Bonza Seeds accepts Visa, Mastercard, and Bitcoin payments in 2017.

Bonza Seeds Final Review

Bonza Seed Bank is a trustworthy place to shop when you want to buy small quantities of seeds from a variety of different breeders. Of course, you can also buy large quantities if you wish. They have a lot of helpful information on their website, as well as a friendly customer service staff that can help with any of your unanswered questions or concerns. They have a good reputation among growers in 2017, and you can usually find a sale or promotion going on on their sales page. Stealth shipping is where Bonza really shines, though the packages may take a little bit longer than normal to get to you.

The shopping experience on the Bonza Seeds website leaves a lot to be desired, with a very disorganized interface. A little facelift would make it a lot more user friendly and easier to find what you’re looking for. Payment methods are few, but they do accept Bitcoin, so that’s a plus. Their return policy is fairly lenient in terms of time, but the cost of return shipping is still on you, except in the case of your products arriving damaged. Our honest review of Bonza Seed Bank is that they’re a safe shop to buy from, but there are better options out there.

Our Recommendations

If you’re looking for looking for more upscale, extremely high quality seeds, there are a few places you can go to buy directly from the breeders for a more luxury product. When you buy directly from seed breeders, you get a fresher product for a lower price, and each breeder takes pride in their reputation and maintains strict quality controls on their products, meaning you can expect a more consistent level of quality from independent seed breeders over seed bank emporium type distributors such as Bonza Seeds. We recommend buying from any one of these seed breeders:

Marijuana-Seeds.NL (MSNL) – This British seed bank is a high quality seed breeder with a large variety of strains. They have a great customer service team as well as worldwide stealth shipping and awesome promotions. Payment options are Bitcoin and credit cards, free seeds are given with every order.

Crop King Seeds – Crop King may not have as wide of a variety as MSNL, but what they do have is very high quality. They have an impressive germination guarantee that will give new buyers peace of mind, as well as a friendly customer service team and worldwide stealth shipping. Payment options are Bitcoin, PayPal, and credit cards.

Ministry of Cannabis – For buyers on a budget, this Spanish seed bank is our top recommendation. Ministry of Cannabis may be inexpensive, but they are definitely not cheap. They offer a great value for your money and ship all over the world. Payment options are Bitcoin and credit cards.

If you would rather buy from a seed bank, either because your favorite breeder doesn’t ship to your country or doesn’t even have its own online shop, or because you want to buy seeds from a variety of different breeders all at once, we recommend Seedsman seed bank, which is the best seed reseller anywhere, as far as we’re concerned. They have an incredible selection (more than 100 different seed breeders!) and a sterling reputation to go along with it. Whenever you need a strain you can’t ship to your country, check out Seedsman first. They’re based in Britain, but they ship worldwide and accept credit card and Bitcoin payments.
