The Strain Hunters seeds bank was founded in the year 2013 and is part of the Green House seeds company that has its home-base in Amsterdam. The Strain Hunters themselves are 3 friends and cannabis connoisseurs Arjan, Franco and Simon who travel the world together looking for cannabis genetics and weed seeds of landraces. These travels are recorded on film and processed into documentaries, the well-known Strain Hunters video series. This series of documentaries is aimed to inform the general public about the cannabis plant and is a real hit on YouTube. The videos show the value of the cannabis plant for local populations and in which way it can have an influence on people in a historical, geographical, political and economic context and contribute to the social acceptance of cannabis.
The seeds they find on their travels are used afterwards to develop new crossings and species. As a result, the Strain Hunters seeds bank has built an enormous collection of exotic cannabis genetics which it has gathered during the expeditions and has now available. The varieties developed from these genetics are mostly feminised versions of hybrid species and unique crossings between landraces and already known varieties. One of the objectives of the Strain Hunters seeds bank is to preserve the cannabis genetics of the gathered landraces for future generations of cannabis connoisseurs, to develop the best cannabis genetics in the world and to make it available for fans.
Thanks to the expeditions the Strain Hunters have made, they were able to gain a unique and global insight, in addition to knowledge, with regard to the cultivation of cannabis worldwide. By visiting growth locations in several parts of the world they know the possibilities for the cultivation of cannabis better than anyone and they are well-informed about the most diverse cultivation techniques. This knowledge will be used later for the development of new types and techniques. The Strain Hunters seeds bank also has access to a worldwide network of passionate cannabis growers all around the world which network is spread until the most remote areas. Thanks to this network of partners who are helping to gather seeds, the Strain Hunters have the rarest types in their possession.
By localising, identifying, preserving and making the genetics of nature races or landraces available, it is possible for scientists to refine their knowledge in the area of medicinal cannabis. There are still many unknown cannabinoid profiles to be found in these landraces originating from inaccessible regions where scientific work is often difficult.
Over the years, the Strain Hunters seeds bank has won many awards at several international cannabis and harvest festivals with different varieties. Their assortment of seeds therefore includes several award-winning cup winners with familiar names such as for example the Lemon Haze, the Flower Bomb Kush, the Afgooey, the Caboose or the Money Maker.
Every sold Strain Hunters weed seed has first been tested on germinating power, using a machine that was specially developed for that purpose, so they are able to ensure that every seed leaving the door will germinate and grow into a beautiful cannabis plant which will provide first-class smoking material. A lot of attention is paid to the marketing and the packaging of the Strain Hunters seeds and all of the Strain Hunters weed seeds are packed in a DVD-cover with a free Strain Hunters expedition video.
The Strain Hunters team is absolutely convinced that the positive and the medicinal powers of the cannabis plant are capable of changing the world into a more beautiful and better place to live.
