Frank’s rant: cannabis seed banks are ripping us off!

Two marijuana seed scams and a solution

I have been growing marijuana, dealing in marijuana seeds, and working with marijuana seed banks for over 20 years.

These days, marijuana seed banks are not just overcharging for their seeds they are doing a “Monsanto” on us.

It’s time to give them the boot to the rear end they deserve.

Let me explain:

The feminised marijuana seeds scam

Back around the turn of the century feminised seeds began to appear on the market.

This was a good way to turn 10 seeds into 10 female bud producing plants. That’s twice as many as if the seeds were normal and produced (on average) 5 males and 5 females, of which the 5 male plants would have to be eliminated to ensure strong sensimillia (no seeds) buds.

So if you just wanted to grow one crop and never grow again it seemed like a good investment.

Fair enough.

But the catch is that if you ever want to grow again you have to trot back to the seed bank and purchase more feminised seeds, and so on and so on and so on.

Now this is fine as long as there always a choice between feminised and regular seeds – but here’s what has been happening:

Regular (normal and healthy) seeds are getting squeezed out of the equation. Every year, seed banks eliminate regular seeds in favour of feminised marijuana seeds only for popular strains.

An example of this comes from Sensi Seeds, which use to be one of my favourite seed banks for robust strains and breeding.

I was checking out their selection of automatic strains the other day. It wasn’t clear whether they were regular of feminised so I asked them via email.

They replied that all their automatic strains are now feminised. You can no longer buy regular automatic seeds.

In other words, they want to be the sole supplier of their automatic strains. Every time you want to grow a crop you have to go back to them and hand over you cash for their seeds.

They are doing a “Monsanto” on us. Worse still, they are concealing it by not even making it clear that the seeds are feminised and cannot be bred.

This isn’t just a problem with Sensi Seeds. All marijuana seed banks have been going down this road.

It’s a mission creep.

Every year, regular marijuana seeds are being eliminated to be replaced by feminised marijuana seeds only.

Of course it’s in their interests to keep you as a returning customer, unable to grow your own seeds.

But it’s not in our interests.

I want to turn this boat around.

Other problems with feminised marijuana seeds

So how do you create a plant that produces only feminised seeds?

There are a number of ways, some using genetically transforming chemicals.

The common method is placing a female plant under severe stress so that it produces pollen sacks. This pollen, created by a stressed female plant, when used to fertilise another female plant will only produce seeds that grow female plants – hence feminised seeds.

It’s a perversion of nature. It’s not the best way to produce health seeds and plants as nature intended it.

I will never believe that a stressed out plant will produce as robust a strain and a naturally bred healthy plant as a regular normal cannabis plant.

The best way to a great strain is to get an awesome daddy plant co-mingling with a awesome mummy plant to create hundreds, if not thousands, of healthy marijuana seeds for the next crop.

By this method of selective breeding you get a much better result than continually buying feminised seeds produced by perverting nature. And it won’t cost you a penny!

The hundreds of “new” varieties with fancy names scam

There are 3 basic types of marijuana grown today: Sativa from the tropics, Indica from the cooler higher altitudes, and Ruderalis from the Russian steppes.

Ruderalis does not produce any psychoactive properties but it flowers throughout its vegetative growth regardless of light cycles. Its genetics are used to produce all automatic varieties.

Indica is a short and dark green plant with dense buds and produces “stoner weed” or “couch lock” and is the basis of all medicinal strains.

Sativa is a large and light green plant with less dense buds that produces a “happy high”.

All marijuana varieties in seed banks are a combination of one or more of these basic types, bred over and over, combined with other hybrids endlessly producing ever more “exotic” stains with ever more ridiculous names.

The genetics are getting so mixed up these days that when you plant, say, 10 seeds from a new strain from a seed bank, you will tend to get a wide variety of characteristics in different plants, as recessive genes from past breeding manifest during growth.

The only way to stabilise a new strain is to select the plants that produce the most desirable traits for breeding. Over a few generations the consistency of the strain improves. (But you can’t do this if you stuck with buying a new batch of feminised seeds for every crop.)

If you want a great crop that consistently produces the type of weed you want, (party, inspirational, medical, CBD, etc.) you have to have access to regular seeds and do selective breeding. Anything else and it’s a bit of a hit and miss.

And forget the fancy names. Anyone can take a two strains of specific qualities and reputations, breed them, and produce a new strains branded with some enticing name. It’s not rocket science It’s chicanery.

So why I’m offering free marijuana seeds

As someone who has been in the marijuana seed and growing business for many years I’m sick of the way things are going. I’m sick of the ridiculous prices charged for some seed strains. (It costs virtually nothing to create thousands of seeds naturally.)

Charging stupid prices for “specialised” strains is also a scam. It costs no more to produce seeds for one variety than another. And when these “special” strains are only available a feminised seeds you are being double scammed!

We need change. To get this ball rolling I’m first going to be offering free cannabis seeds. I’m not a wealth philanthropist who can throw money into a good cause so I will be asking you to cover the shipping and handling costs. But the seeds are free.

Super Blueberry Haze Automatic mother plant with seeds

I currently have bred and stockpiled Super Blueberry Haze Automatics seeds.

This is a great variety that grows around 2 1/2 feet tall (say, a little under a meter), produces thick sweet smelling bud that gives a happy inspirational high when consumed.

It can be harvested 3 months after germination (although waiting up to 4 months is best in my experience).

The original stock comes from Flash Seeds but this batch is a better version in my opinion because I only bred the most robust plants and weed out the deviants.

In the coming months I will have different seed varieties to offer. Medicinal and CBD stains are in the works. They will all be free. Just pay for my shipping costs. Deal done.

These seeds will move pretty fast. Free is a hard price to beat. If you want to get first dibs on these free marijuana seeds, enter your email in the field below and you’ll get first notification when I’m ready to ship. Also you can let me know what kind of varieties you are particularly interested in. If a lot of you say you want a strain good for stress reduction, (for example), I’ll get to work on producing those seeds.

Working towards a free marijuana seeds exchange

My longer term plan to counter these scams is to facilitate an online service where growers can exchange seeds among each other for free or nominal cost. We can all become our own seed banks producing amazing strains for each other through growing and exchanging.

When enough of us are in the loop and producing our own great varieties, we can set up a free seed exchange where we can swap seeds among each other. And yes, exchanging seeds is perfectly legal as far as I’m aware.

So sign-up below, not just to get free seeds now, but to become part of the worldwide free marijuana seed revolution!

Facts about medical marijuana that may surprise you

Medical Marijuana facts

medical marijuana factsMedical marijuana has existed in the medical world for many years.

There are two major cannabis strains: cannabis Indica and cannabis Sativa containing three popular compounds- CBD, THC and CBN.

Medical marijuana is useful in treating many conditions, including nausea, pain, inflammation, anxiety, low appetite, seizure, and many other conditions including insomnia and somniphobia.

Medical marijuana is taken to treat various conditions. Though medical and recreational marijuana come from the same plant, they do have some significant differences. For one, recreational marijuana contains more THC, while medical marijuana contains more of CBD. Moreover, many states are accepting medical marijuana and legalizing it, whereas recreational marijuana is still facing legality issues in many places.

Also, it is readily available at places where it is legal in different forms such as oils, seeds, tablets, or edibles. Thus, depending on your lifestyle and your needs, you can use the most suitable way to consume medical marijuana.

One can also grow their seeds at the comfort of their homes. You can buy medical marijuana seeds here and get started toi day.

Here are some facts you didn’t know about medical marijuana

THC is non-psychoactive when fresh

Did you know this? Many people do not use THC for medical purposes because of its psychoactive effects. THC is THCA while in its raw form. Several physicians are already using raw marijuana to treat people, and claim that “fresh” marijuana has a lot of medical benefits. However, it may lose some of its medical benefits when you dry it.

THCA has outstanding anti-proliferation and anti-inflammatory properties that have the potency of inhibiting the growth of cancer cells. THCA can also assist patients in controlling seizures since it has antispasmodic features.

Presently, THCA can help to treat patients with prolonged immune disorders. Patients who have Lupus confirm that using raw marijuana is of great help than the traditional treatments they have been trying.

Source of revenue for state governments

California was the first state to make medical marijuana legal 20 years ago. Now in 2019, more and more states are legalising the use of medical marijuana.

Typically, the legalisation of marijuana has seen states raise a lot of revenue from it. Legalisation of recreational and medical marijuana comes with a hefty tax of 15%, including income from licensing and fees.

Sales revenue vary from state to state, with Washington leading in its sale. The high profits from medical marijuana sales attract the government to impose taxes on the income of cannabis businesses.

The revenue from these businesses is a booster for education, mental health care, and other state projects.

Suicide rates are lower in legal marijuana states

medical marijuana strainsA study reveals that states that allow the use of medical marijuana has reduced suicide rates than in states that do not allow the use of medical marijuana.

As per the study, there is a 10% reduction in suicide cases because of the legalisation of medical marijuana.

The findings of this study go hand in hand with the theory that medical marijuana can treat depression and other stress-related conditions. Thus, people will not opt to take their lives even when facing a difficult situation.

In addition to lowering suicide rates, many types of marijuana can enhance ones enjoyment of life. This holds for a wide variety of activities including sexual activity. There is even a list of the best marijuana for sex.

There are more than thousand slang names for marijuana

You have probably heard of several of these many names, including weed, pot, Mary Jane, ganja, and many others. These are over a thousand slang names for marijuana. Since marijuana has been illegal in many states, the users and the dealers had to use a code language to avoid arrests and punishments.

The illegality of cannabis is the main reason as to why it has many slang names. There are other names of marijuana that might be new to many people, including Nixon, Aunt Mary, airplane, muggle, Houdini, Climb.

You can enjoy medical marijuana in different ways

You can either vape marijuana or ingest it as edibles. With many online dispensaries, you can mail order marijuana products. The different ways to consume medical marijuana include:

  • Drinks: You can make marijuana tea from its stems and enjoy its benefits. Moreover, you can add marijuana to various beverages. What better way to consume medical marijuana than to have it in your favourite drink?
  • Sprays: you can spray marijuana on the tongue to treat various conditions.
  • Blunt: this is the favourite for experienced weed smokers; it entails wrapping the weed with several cigar papers to create a robust joint.

There has never been a marijuana overdose

Marijuana has a lengthy history of its use and no overdose records. Overdose number will continue to be at zero unless there is anyone who will be able to vape 1500 pounds of marijuana in fifteen minutes, a figure that can lead to marijuana overdose.

You will have to vape 20,000-40,000 normal joints for within few hours to die out of its toxicity. Therefore, overdosing from marijuana is hypothetical and not possible.

Howard Marks on new CBD strains

Howard Marks, Welsh smuggler and cannabis advocate on CBD strains

Former worldwide marijuana smuggler and current marijuana rights campaigner Howard Marks from Wales (Mr Nice) talks to an interviewer in the recent Spannabis convention held in Barcelona this year, about a range of new strains for medical use.

Note: The video described above is no longer available on Youtube so this more recent interview with Howard marks was substituted. Howard Marks, originally from Kenfig Hill, Wales, passed away in April 2016.

These new strains have been specially cultivated to be high in both THC and cannabidiol (CBD). Both these substances have beneficial healing effects of various kinds, however most strains which are high in THC are fairly low in CBD. This is all changing now with increasing recognition of the valuable medicinal qualities of CBD.

While THC has more of a stimulant effect, CBD is more calming and sedating, making it good for anxiety and stress-related problems. Another effect of CBD is that it actually reduces the psychoactive effect of THC, meaning that you get less ‘high’ from the THC. Not good news if the buzz is what you’re after, but for many medical users, being able to get the medical benefits of marijuana without getting high is a huge advantage.
