World Seed Preservation

4 posts in this topic

OK, so I haven't seen this before, I've always thought it was necessary but didn't realise it was already being done and so incredibly properly. 

I believe this facility also take deposits from multinational companies with an interest in the preservation of seed stock from around the world. I am sure GHSC and Strain Hunters keep Mums and seeds in controlled storage, but must live in fear of loss, damage, spoiling or government destruction. I seem to remember a story about some of Arjans parent stock being destroyed in Switzerland?? (May be myth).

Anyway, check out the video below, I hope this is of interest to Franco and Arjan.

I think we collectively, the enthusiasts for cannabis, are the best seedbank for the preservation of the cannabis species.

Keep buying, breeding, improving, storing, distributing, sharing seeds and GROWING...

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.
