Out of This World: Rocket Seeds
Rocket Seeds sells all kinds of seeds for genetic collection, growers, and seed preservation. They are the first seed company with 24/7 live support. Rocket Seeds is the only seed company to offer an 80 percent germination guarantee. Maximum Yield chatted with Rocket Seeds team members Lannie, Camerin, and Jada to learn more about the company.
How did you come up with the name Rocket Seeds?
The origin of Rocket Seeds is unknown, but we’ve heard a few theories! After years of perfecting Crop King Seeds packaging and customer service, we decided it was time to elevate our platform with no limitations.
How important is safety when you’re engineering new products?
Safety is our number one priority from seeds to employees which is why we’ve scouted out the most experienced breeders with top-quality genetics.
What are some new innovations you are using in your products?
Rocket Seeds is the first site of its kind! Bringing in more than 600 seed types, each with specific packaging tailored to anyone who wants to collect CBD-only seeds.
Any new innovations/technology you are working on that you can tell our readers about?
Seed Tracker Technology (STT) is built for growers by growers. We offer all our premium brands along with the information that customers want.

What are some steps Rocket Seeds has taken to improve its environmental responsibility?
With the increasing popularity and expansion of Rocket Seeds, our core values have changed. We are currently searching for high-quality and environmentally friendly packaging.

Why should consumers choose Rocket Seeds over the competition?
We always recommend you try both! Rocket Seeds would not be here today without the hard work and dedication from seed breeders and growers all over the world. Our seed bank is unique! We are the first to offer 24/7 live support, strain-specific packaging, and an 80 percent germination guarantee (where applicable by law). Our mission is to partner with retail stores across the globe.
Do you have any expansion plans?
Before Rocket Seeds was ever a thought, we were a part of Crop King Seeds. Originally starting with 40 heirloom varieties to now having over 560 offerings, we are still expanding.
What are you doing to retain staff?
A full kitchen. Literally! Rocket Seeds staff becomes family. We work closely with each other in all positions and utilize everyone’s opinion. Crop King Seeds offers a bonus to those who are with us during our busy season and company paid trips.
What are some challenges you’ve come across in marketing your products?
One of the biggest challenges we’ve had to face is the well-known shadow ban and community guidelines protocol on social media platforms. The continuing battle of plant legalities often questions the differences in hemp and marijuana, forcing activists to take a stand.
How are you keeping pace in such a fast-moving industry?
We are constantly striving to stay ahead. Asking everyone for input no matter what their position is. Having a diverse team has helped.
Describe your company culture.
One of our goals in securing the future of seeds is to cultivate an innovative and progressive environment for the industry to grow.
