    Hi Amin! Thanks for the clear picture! Would you mind providing more details about these seeds? I noticed you used the tag houseplants-did you find them near a plant in your house? Where do you live? What kind of plants grow in your area? Are the seeds hard or soft? I'm asking because it will help people narrow down the choices of what they could be. The more details you give, the better answers you'll get! Have you had a look at our help center? How to Ask is a great place to start. It's nice to meet you; we hope you have fun here!

  • For me it's a nut variety, but without localization information it will be hard to identify.

It should be Cerbera Odollam, a fake mango also called Bintaro in Indonesia. See the pictures below. Apparently is highly toxic!

  • Well done, thank you for finding that one out. Have just looked it up,too. Yes toxic, but an article in the Indian Express from a few years ago states that workers say it's gown and exported for the bio insecticides industry. Which would make sense for the volume photographed.

    This is abosolutely not cannabis seeds. This seeds seem to be a lot bigger while MJ seeds measure approximately 0.5 cm.

  • Thomas, you are correct insofar as the exact same photo is listed on that (somewhat dubious) website - but unfortunately it's not a cannabis sativa seed, neither here nor there. Looking closely, you will notice the black "standard" box used for commercial markets and similar. I'd estimate the seeds in question to be way bigger, at least egg-sized.
