The Real Seed Company is a group of traditionalists who got together in 2007 in order to save the old and rare strains. They became worried about the state of biodiversity in marijuana after the damage done to it by prohibition. So they travelled the world finding these pure, rare strains so that they could breed them and make sure the genetics were saved in their seed banks. They now sell these seeds to the public in the hopes that one day we will be allowed to grow them legally and these amazing strains will have the comeback they deserve.
They supply both CBD high strains and THC high strains for medical use and recreational use respectively. Their current catalogue is not immense but they are growing all the time. This is partly due to the rare nature of the strains that they supply, they also do not currently supply genetically engineered plants such as auto flowering and feminised as they can compromise the genetic makeup of their pure strains.
Feminised seeds are very popular on the current cannabis market as they eliminate the possibility of growing male plants. Most people have no need for male plants any more since few produce their own seed harvests. Feminised seeds do have a reputation for being simple and efficient as well as having a higher level of potency and uniformity. However with strains this rare, the breeding possibility is rather important. Having the males as well as the females means that a breeder can choose the best males and females to be the parents. This way we can not only keep the strains but possibly improve on them.
It is rare that you find a brand this passionate about what they do. They care a great deal about maintaining these strains which I feel is rather admirable. No one wants them to die out all together for the sake of them being frowned upon.
Please remember that the growing of cannabis plants and the cultivation of seeds is illegal in some countries – please check the laws of your country and don’t be growing any plants if it is against your country’s laws.
