Serious Seeds is a small company in Holland, concentrating on the production of high-quality, stable and consistent varieties of cannabis seeds. The founder of Serious Seeds, Simon started his journey as a non-smoker... In 1986 during a trip to Africa, he discovered his love for pure marijuana, particularly without the customary tobacco mix that has become the popular trend and so began his quest. For nearly a decade, Simon was cultivating genetics for personal use, experimenting with his favourite strains in order to satisfy his own tastes.
After years of studies, tutoring and first-hand experience from collaborations with reputable seed banks, Simon teamed up with two American “cannabis-refugees” and founded their own seed bank. Since their humble beginnings in 1995, Serious Seeds is unique among seed banks because they only sell award-winning cannabis seeds. Their mission is, "to develop easy to grow, stable and homogeneous genetics for medicinal and recreational smokers", and they definitely do deliver on that promise!
While a collection of 15 seeds may not seem like a lot, what sets Serious Seeds apart is that when a strain is improved, the improved product is sold with the same name. Some other companies give these improvements new names and consider them to be "new" strains. Working this way, it takes a long time to produce a new strain to meet high-quality standards to rank next to the existing strains of Serious Seeds. “Sorry to all the people who constantly ask for new names, but we are working seriously on new strains, not on making up new names.” Serious Seeds is stringent on keeping their quality high and releasing a seed only once it is stable and consistent.
Serious Seeds is the home of these classic award-winning cannabis strains AK-47, Bubble Gum, Chronic, Kali Mist, White Russian, Warlock, Double Dutch, Biddy Early, Motavation, Serious 6, Autoflowering White Russian #1, Serious Happiness, Serious Kush, CBD-Chronic and CBD-enriched Warlock. Until June 2017, these strains have collectively received more than 90 awards (that they know of) in different Cannabis competitions around the globe. Many of those awards were won by customers growing from Serious Seeds retail-seeds, which proves: Everybody can grow a winner with Serious Seeds!
