Travelers may also bring small lots of seed (not to exceed 50 packets of seeds) without a phytosanitary certificate if the seeds are not otherwise prohibited and you have a Small Lots of Seed Permit issued by APHIS.
How do you smuggle seeds?
Similarly, can airport scanners detect seeds?
But if you have a small flat bag of seed. It’s not going to detected. Most countries allow you to possess and transport seeds as long as they’re not contaminated with an illegal drug.
One may also ask, can you take sunflower seeds on a plane? Aside from the fact that nuts are a common allergen, shelled nuts or seeds are still a terrible idea to bring on a plane. Sunflower seeds are an especially bad idea because you have to physically spit out the shells as you eat them. Do your seatmates a favor and just don’t.
Thanks for the link However these are the required provisions for said import. – from your link :
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates the importation of all seeds for planting to ensure safe agricultural trade. Under this authority, USDA is providing an alternative way for the safe importation of hemp seeds into the United States.
Hemp seeds can be imported into the United States from Canada if accompanied by either: 1.) a phytosanitary certification from Canada’s national plant protection organization to verify the origin of the seeds and confirm that no plant pests are detected; or 2.) a Federal Seed Analysis Certificate (SAC, PPQ Form 925) for hemp seeds grown in Canada.
21 U.S.C. § 812 – U.S. Code – Unannotated Title 21. Food and Drugs § 812. Schedules of controlled substances –
Schedule I – (C)- (10) Marihuana
In addition to hemp seed being legal, thc bearing seed for novelty, fishing, bait, animal food (non-germination) is legal.
Ive never received these certs ordering from Euro, UK or Canada.
Which is why you still get the green tape and seeds confiscated if CBP catches your order to the USA. And declaring it without proper paperwork at the airport customs would probably have the same results.
Back in the early 1980s we took 15 grams of hash from Canada over the border by car to help us enjoy our canoe/camping tripping among the Georgian and Florida alligators. My brother hid it in his mouth (seriously). We hoped he wouldn’t be forced to swallow that huge chunk. Lol
I read a few days ago (cant find the post back unfortunately) that somebody managed to travel with 20 – 30 seeds put in his jeans pockets, spread over the whole area of his suitcase.
Honestly now that I’m older I’d never risk it again. The backwards USA is very strict at the border. I have a career that 3 years in an American prison would seriously interfere with. Not to mention, my wife might be a bit freaked out over it. I’ve heard stories (yeah just stories) that people have lost their cars and freedom while having a few seeds in their ashtray in their car, or a dirty hash pipe hidden under the seat. When you visit backwards, socially undeveloped countries, your best bet is to obey their rules completely when you enter and while you’re there.
They are deemed souvenirs here, for your mantle piece..haha
IMHO this is not good advice, they are illegal. I wouldn't want to have a full body cavity search I can tell you that.
I wouldn't go with 'its legal for ornamental use', MJ seeds are illegal. Just put em in a pocket like everyone else says. I carry worse stuff than that on planes.
on many occasions i have brought them back with me from amsterdam,
. anyway it's an act, a statue, forced on you unlawfully. A STATUTE which only applies with your consent . dont consent.
I don't take any chances when flying, especially with the heightened security nowadays. I'd mail them before I left to a safe addy.
Fuck em bro..just put em in yr jeans pocket in your suitcase. forget about them, you left em there on accident. remember !!
