We all loved him, brother.

His passion was certainly an inspiration for me.

I am so happy to have gotten to know him, even if it was only through the grow session videos and the documentaries and an occasional reply in the forum.

So, now his dream lives on in us.

I am proud to be a Strain Hunter...

Let's carry on his work...

 

And thank you, Dust.  Your comment confirmed what I had hoped for, that we will fight on.  It would be a shame to not carry on what he had started.  I want to do my part.

 

My thoughts are also with his family and friends.  And he has lots of friends. 

 

Our hearts are heavy with grief, but time will heal.

It's a sad loss for all Francos family, including the ghs and strain hunter family too. I only knew of Franco from growhdtv and strainhunters videos but I feel like I've lost something too. I've never before seen somebody show such character and emotion at the sight of a plant. The weed world will miss him for sure.  I just planted some seeds this crops for Franco 

RIP BUDDY

My honest and deepest condolences to Franco's family & close friends, the GHSC staff and all who knew him personally.

 

So sad he had to leave so young, leaving his family behind, which breaks my heart.

I, too, have dropped a seed in memorium of Franco.

 

I'm sure that Franco was actively planning a number of strain-breeding projects, but one in particular, of which he may have been especially proud, was the SLEX (SuperLemonHaze x ExodusCheese).  At least he seemed very excited about it when he was interviewed recently by Zamnesia Magazine.  The testers here in StrainHunters have been very happy with SLEX.  The initial SLEX grows have already been harvested, and the smoke-reports are now being posted with positive opinions.

 

I will be ordering the SLEX for sure, as soon as it becomes available for sale.

 

By the way, if you don't know already, there is a Condolences Board opened if you wish to leave a message of condolence for Franco's family and friends, or a farewell message for Franco.  On the page showing various pictures of Franco and displaying his life's philosophy, before you click on the link to the actual Condolences Board, first simply scroll down below Franco's pictures, and then you can read Arjan's special message to Franco and to us, Franco's friends, the StrainHunters.

Here is the link to the Condolences Board:

Thank you , too, Arjan for the reassurance that Franco's legacy will continue.  Hang in there, buddy.  We're with you.

Still can't believe this! 

Haven't bin active in ages and come online and see this such sad news! 

He was good man! 

Lotta love for that dude! 

I remember when he gave some Panama Haze when i first arrived in Amsterdam one of the finest smokes i had the whole trip!

always had kind words and full of wisdom and inspiration could talk about strains for days! 

 

The community lost a good man! 

May his work continue with others and his knowledge he passed to us is passed to many others! 

 

Much love hunters and keep hunting and fighting the good fight! 

 

Peace

Potent,

 

"others" includes you.

 

His legacy lives on in you and me and all the others who keep hunting and spreading the seed and spreading the word about Cannabis.

About us

Strain Hunters is 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.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
