On our journeys we, at Seeds of Africa, met a lot of interesting people, people that are as passionate about this work as we are and here we want to shed some light on these brothers and sisters and share some of their stories.
During a march to the Union Buildings in Pretoria in 1956, the women sang a freedom song: “Wathint’ abafazi, Strijdom! wathint’ abafazi,wathint’ imbokodo,uza kufa!”
Translated into English this means: “[When] you strike the women, you strike a rock, you will be crushed [you will die]!”
Have you ever thought about what the UK could be like if cannabis was fully legalized? I’ll bet you a Henry you have. It doesn’t take a great leap of the imagination, and cannabis users tend to be an imaginative lot. If you’ve visited the Netherlands, especially its coffeeshop epicentre of Amsterdam, it’s virtually impossible not to daydream about what our scepter’d isle could be like if its outdated, indefensible cannabis legislation changed.
Dutch Passions 1st Prize in the 2016 Highlife Cup with AutoNight Queen confirms what a lot of auto growers already knew, autos are just as good as photoperiod varieties for quality-focussed home growers.
Whatever walk of life you come from, generally it is safe to say that smoking ‘The Wisdom Herb’ is a turning point in our lives. A time when we were more in tune to nature and having the zeal to live life as uncomplicated as possible – in peace and in unity.
Going big is not always the key to long lasting success, but sometimes, it is the perfect expression of long years of dedication, sacrifice, and faith. At the Emerald Cup, California’s premier outdoor cannabis cup, hundreds of the finest growers and processors vie for a few coveted spots indicating they are at the top of their game. Competition is fierce and unyielding.
For the past 20 years, the top-shelf California cannabis market has been dominated by cultivars defined by bouquets of exotic fuel-tones similar to the piercing fragrance of diesel and gasoline. In regards to the four definitive terpene profiles indicative to ganja (i.e. earth, floral, and fruit, and fuel) fuel-based strains have proven to be the undisputed favorite in the market making them among the most sought after varieties commanding the highest premiums.
Seedstockers is a new seed brand, a sister company of Dutch Passion from Amsterdam with the same owner as Dutch Passion, Henk van Dalen. Seedstockers specialize in selling large quantities of high quality seeds for a very competitive price with a very simple business model; a small office and small young and motivated team.
Recently Sweet Seeds® celebrated the 11th anniversary as a seedbank and just like last year there will be many surprises not only in the social networks (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) but also in cannabis forums where they have their own commercial subforums. Do not forget to check these websites every day because you will find contests and many news shared directly from their new blog. The offer of 3 + 1 free seed and 5 + 2 free seeds with each pack will still continue and new varieties are expected very soon, some of them rich in CBD.
Every so often we are lucky to experience a collaboration between people whose deep understanding of our unique connection to the plant produces an extraordinary creation. Reverence for the terroir (the soil, water, micro climate, natural soil composition) infuses the cannabis with a special quality inherent to its place of growth. Royal Sour Hashish is of pedigree stock, grown in expert conditions, and processed with the utmost care. When given the opportunity to smoke eye popping combination of factors, I expect this experience is going to be practically holy.
