Karimi, Johnny's Seeds lists Stinging Nettle seed for sale. A link is provided below. I have heard that when cooked that these plants do have healthful properties.
I will never forget an incident on the first day of our first trip to England. We were roaming the grounds of Dover Castle when I spotted a plant that I thought looked like some kind of mint. I reached over and rubbed its leaves with my thumb. My thumb felt like I had touched a Pack Saddle caterpillar - worse than a bee sting!

Here is a link that might be useful: Johnny's Seeds Page for Stinging Nettle
