You want to sell seed or have a seed company? 

Or You do a grow diary?

Aloha, Yes with a little help from my friends in Seattle, Bellingham, Olympia, and Portland.  I met with Nevil and he got 15 years of breeding and 11 strains of  Northern Lights. Arjan knows this is the case.

Aloha, Arjan, Shantibaba, Ben Dronkers, and Nevil know well who I am. If you were left out of the loop perhaps you were too young?

Go to youtube and look at my Guru Luther Burbank and study his methodology. He died long before i was born but left his broad grasp on plant breeding for my generation and yours. Thank God he was a writer too.

he did wonderful things with breeding and crossing hundreds of different food plants that we still use today and he did alot in that sense, but im afraid he was no writer or the maker of any new scientific methods the methods he used was created by others before him. he was rich and famous breeder but not a big contributor to science. Money, friends in high places and hype did a lot 100 years ago like it does today...

 

he got help from other botanist and professional writers also. most of the writing in hes 12 volume book series is done by  George Hull  and atleast 5 other authors that were hired by the publishing company, even tho books carry hes name he didnt make them (just like music biz today hehe).

 

he was good at producing new crop varietys that made him very rich as he sold the growing rights at high prices(wtf is that? he was like monsanto) ,  but the scientific methods of the era he used was done by other people like gregor mendel that lived  before him, or george hull that actually wrote most of the burbanks books and many other scientist of the era

 

the fact he didnt keep records  for us to see later(keeping records of the breeding/results/facts and work in general)  means that the work and books doesnt qualify as science, it confirms he was not in to the plant study but in to selling patents at high price

 

he held 16 plant patents while he was alive

 

he and hes friends including the evil scientist mr.thomas edison were the ones who started the whole plant patenting idea and brought it further after burbank had developed alot of amazing varietys...  that is quite sickening and inhumane to me so i find it hard to respect the man who made fast money in the name of science and yet didnt leave us any science to look at later on...

Aloha, I would love to have patent rights on my new dwarf  disease resistant pepper. To consider Edison evil is your call not mine and i disagree on these issues  100%.

Looks amazing !

Aloha, I am a little surprised myself at how well things grow here in Hawai'i using minimal inputs compared to indoors in Seattle.

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.
