The origin of Soma Seeds is really a rather touching story. The creator of the brand, named Soma funnily enough, fell in love with marijuana at the tender age of 18. He was working as a mail clerk at the time; a colleague helped him to roll a couple of joints. He went down to the river in his suit and had his first joint, according to him he fell in love with the calm feeling there and then. How lovely.
He says that marijuana has since been one of his life's most positive influences.
The brand began when he was running a vegetarian restaurant and bakery in Vermont in 1971. He became more and more aware of the effect that he could have on the environment and so he began growing his own cannabis organically. From there everything just evolved and marijuana became woven into all of his interests. It even drove him to become more involved in some hobbies that he otherwise may never have enjoyed. He cares a great deal about his plants and his seeds and is of course not in favour of the pot laws in different countries worldwide.
He doesn't just use cannabis for smoking purposes either, he uses it for clothing, paper, food, medicine, the many different uses for cannabis really are stunning.
His website supplies a lot of information and even a tutorial/lecture on organic growing. Not just for marijuana but for plants in general. His intention being to help everyone get just a little bit greener.
An aspect of his site that I find to be rather clever is the strain guide. The blends are explained as well as a guide on choosing the right strain for you. They are even listed by the effect that they have i.e. whether a strain is useful for socializing, creativity, relaxing or sleeping, even which strain is the best for doing the do if you catch my drift. I think this is a fantastic way to organise the strains, it really relates directly to the customer.
He has also won quite a few 1st and 2nd place awards for his strains so not only is there a lovely, calm, hippy dippy vibe to this brand but the quality to go along with it. If you are looking for something informal, pleasant, and extremely useful and caring then Soma Seeds is the way to go.
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.
