From the jungles of Africa to Asia to the mountain ranges of South America, the Strain Hunters are on a mission to bring back the most important and isolated cannabis landraces known to man.
Over the past 34 years the Strain Hunters have collected some of the most unique and rare genetics from landraces all over the world and the hunt is still on!!
You can see what it takes to be a Strain Hunter below by watching our newest documentary from the Congo.
Skunk Autoflowering is a classic Skunk, but with a new livery. The guys at Strain Hunters crossed it with a pure Ruderalis from Kazakhstan and the outcome is an autoflowering strain with an outstanding productivity. Under a 1000W lamp and fed well it is possible to achieve a yield of up to 800g/m²! The robust plants reach a height of 90-120cm.
Only founded in 2012, Strain Hunters has strong ties with Green House Seeds, being founded by Green House’s Arjan, as well as Franco and Simon. The aim was to create a completely separate seed bank that dedicated itself to hunting down and preserving the many exotic landrace cannabis strains that can be found across the globe.
The combination of Green Crack x OG Kush, Flowerbomb Kush is an indica dominant powerhouse with multiple awards under her belt. She is highly productive and able to produce her yields after just 8 weeks of flowering. This combines with strong resilience during growth and some highly resinous bud when it comes to harvest! In terms of yields, Flowerbomb Kush can grow up to 800g/m² indoors (under a 1000w light) or up to 1kg/plant outdoors under optimal conditions. The high she produces is almost narcotic, transporting the mind and body into the depth of relaxation.
Not only do Strain Hunters hope to bring us some of the more unique and unusual genetics from across the globe, they also spend a lot of time documenting their travels. During this, they explore how cannabis can change lives and benefit society – in an aim to dispel the ignorance that can often go hand in hand with weed.
Also Included in the case is a DVD documenting the Strain Hunters expeditions, as well as a flavour wheel.
Strain Hunters make sure that all their cannabis seeds are well packaged to ensure safe delivery to you. Each seed is stored within a DVD case, with the seeds visible through the front behind a protective plastic shield.
Now, the Strain Hunters sell their fantastic strains, both ones they have sourced from remote locations and their very own strains created at their headquarters, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Seed Company and the results have been tremendous.
The Strain Hunters brand started as a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet. They deemed the worldwide persecution of cannabis to be uncalled for and so searched the globe for the last remaining ‘real’ landraces that were left in remote corners of the world.
These strains, isolated for decades and sometimes for centuries, constantly inbreeding, are at the origin of all the thousands of variations that we know today in the cannabis industry. In these landraces there are hundreds, maybe thousands of unique cannabinoid profiles that have never been evaluated by the pharmaceutical industry; nevertheless they could be of enormous help in the future, when the knowledge about the medicinal properties of the cannabis plant will advance further. One of these cannabinoid profiles could be hiding the next miracle drug for the treatment of very serious diseases. The concept of Strain Hunters stems from the need to preserve nature’s gifts to man, in a quest for a better future.
During their expeditions to the far reaches of the globe, the Strain Hunters; Arjan, Franco and Simon collated an extensive library of the most exotic, unusual genetics imaginable. From these genetics, Strain Hunters now have a collection of premium feminised Autoflower, Hybrids, Landraces and Regular cannabis seeds.
With a relatively small library of strains, Strain Hunters have released only the very best strains that they have created onto the market. All of which are available to buy at Seedsman.
