The Cannabis breeder behind Serious Seeds, Simon, is responsible for the Cannabis genetics sold by the seed bank. He studied biology at one of the universities in Amsterdam. To begin with he was always a non-smoker of tobacco, and therefore also marihuana, because in Holland it is common practice to mix the latter with tobacco to roll a Cannabis joint. Simon discovered the merits of smoking pure marijuana after his studies whilst traveling through Africa in 1986. From that moment on he started collecting Cannabis seeds and back in Holland he immediately started growing them out for personal pleasure crossing what he thought were the best Cannabis plants seemed a natural follow up. Contact with other Cannabis growers gave him access to different Cannabis strains from which he also selected the best Cannabis plants.
The genetic background of this material was not always clearly known. Simon was teaching biology at a high school when Alan Dronkers asked him to come and work at Sensi Seeds. It was a serious career change but one he has never regretted. In 1994 after a period working for Sensi Seeds he decided to leave and start his own Cannabis seed company with some American cannabis refugees. That year AK-47 and Chronic both won prices at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. After the show the initial Cannabis seed company ended and in 1995 Serious Seeds was founded.
It has always been Serious Seeds policy to have the cannabis grown from the different Cannabis seeds they sell available in some of Amsterdam best coffee shops to help gauge opinion. The Greenhouse Coffee Shop is one which has carried Serious Seeds cannabis from the start in 1995 to this date. The Greenhouse Coffeeshop won a Cannabis Cup in 1995 with the Kali Mist grown by Serious Seeds.
In 1996 another famous Amsterdam coffeeshop the ‘Dampkring’ won the Overall Cup at that years Cannabis Cup with the newest Serious Seeds strain White Russian. Another supplier of Serious Seeds cannabis from early on was The Blue Bird and also more recently The Dread Rock.
Serious Seeds has always been a small company, with a select list of seeds. They started favouring quality not quantity and plan on maintaining that principle to the end. If your looking for reliable, stable feminised Cannabis Seeds, Serious Seeds are a company you can rely upon.
