Dr Greenthumb seeds

So first let me say I have only grown about 12 different strains. I average roughly 98% success germinating seeds.
So I did some research on Dr Greenthumb seeds and decided to give it try. I was extremely excited to try 2 strains specifically Oh Zone and Headband. So I ordered them. Their seeds are more expensive than average but suppose to be very high quality. It took 28 days to receive my order. The order came with specific instructions on how to germinate their seeds. So I followed the directions to a tea which is not the way I normally germinate. I tried 3 seeds using their method. All three failed. I tried three more using their exact method and only one popped. I tried 2 more using my method and had 1 pop. So far out of 8 seeds “4 of each strain,” only 2 popped. Not very good odds at all. If I continue to have this type of results with the remaining seeds they will have costed me $150 per successful seed. I emailed Dr Greenthumb three times and my emails were returned to sender. So out of 15 seeds from that single order there are 7 left. Wonder what the odds are that the remaining 7 all pop. Zero!

I must say I am extremely frustrated as I have never experienced such a high failure rate of seeds ordered before. Has anyone else had issues with their seeds? I am going to write a letter along with the remaining seeds and send them back requesting fresh seeds or money back. I think we all know how that will turn out. That is why I am posting this. Beware, I hope you have better luck than I have with Dr Greenthumb products. I will update this thread at a later date if I hear from them.

Shit. Dr. Gruber had me thinking about greenthumbs Panama Red, claimed its the stuff from the 70s, and I was going to drop cash on it this fall for next years run!?

I’m going to watch this thread before I buy! wasn’t going to run it till early part of next year anyway but now I’m wondering if it’s a wise decision. Thanks for the heads up

Beware Of Dr Greenthumb.

Had a really bad experience with Dr Greenthumb seedbank and thought the community should know!
I am in a country which still hunts down and prosecutes smokers,growers etc so being careful is a must!
I placed an order (with Cash) and posted it to Dr Grenthumb in Canada as I had heard good things.

My wife has severe breast cancer so we are in dire need of good quality genetics, and so that is why we ordered through them, well we have waited and waited, and finally contacted them to ask what, where, why etc, about our order, and were told, “we never received it” .. Ok fair enough, So I waited another 2 weeks, emailed them asking what the situation was and if there was any news, and was told “we don’t have your order, don’t email again and f off. ”
Now I don’t know about you guys, but to me that is way too far!
Fair enough you are having a bad day etc, but don’t tell a customer to F off! We are the reason they are in business, without customers, business don’t succeed, so it is a fine balance, but this was ridiculous!

So I have wasted half a season waiting for nothing (to be told to f off) !

I’m out 500$ and will NEVER order through them again, and I will warn others to be very wary of them!

Many peeps send cash and get good results. I won’t send cash via mail. Ever.

International Money orders can be bought at many places. and some seedbanks now take Bitcoins as well. I’d never use a plastic card either. And I’d never have seeds delivered directly to an address where you plan to grow.

I do believe you could have gotten a USPS tracker number to insure that it was received..or not. OTOH, I guess they could say they received your mail but there was no money inside.

Thanks for the advice and thoughts guys.

I know, I really did stuff up, I have ruined the season for my wife, I used nearly all of my tax return to get the non existant seeds, and the only reason I did order through Dr Greenthumb was I was duped by good marketing and a mate who spoke well of there stuff.
I don’t think companies such as Dr GT realise the impact of there actions.
Yes I was foolish to send cash unregistered, but I believe he received it.
The season has been nearly lost due to waiting for nothing, the medicine I was hoping to have for my wife seems to be slipping out of my grasp, and to be honest the bushy weed we can get here is so poor it has no real benefit I think, more psychological.
So I still haven’t had the guts to break it to my wife, she has a lot of other stresses to deal with lately so I thought my best bet would be to order from here and just hope for the best.
There has been a couple of strains ive read about on here, I feel would really help her, Being in Aus we don’t get any of these varieties especially clone only ones, so varieties such as bruce banner , face off og, etc that have a high potency we just don’t see really interest me
Hence why I was ordering some varieties from Dr Greenthumb in the first place!

Anyways if this helps one other person from having to go through what I have then I will be glad to have helped.

I hate the punk ass fools in the cannabis buisness. I don’t get it, if I screwed my customers that way I would be shot by now. Bad Karma for Dr. Greenthumb.

If you weren’t in Aus, I would hook you up in a second. Sorry for your loss, hope your wife starts feeling better.

Thankyou so much for your words Bulldog11 (fantastic photo of your dog by the way!) WE have had a bad run, but hopefully things pick up soon.

Unfortunatel that seems to my biggest hurdle, being in Aus, I believe that’s probably why he took my money also, im just so far away to be able to do anything, and the other side of that is being able to aquire good honest genetics for very sick people.

Gday everyone, Had a really bad experience with Dr Greenthumb seedbank and thought the community should know! I am in a country which still hunts down and…
