The web is full of so called cannabis seed companies that have sprung up over the last ten years. Many of these are nothing more than scams run by people that haven't even grown marijuana let alone bred marijuana seeds properly. Now that the heyday is over for these companies, they're being weeded out, and many are struggling to survive. The public are far more aware and only the genuine businesses will survive the next ten years.
Ceres Seeds is a 100% homegrown Dutch seed company. Its history goes back to 1988 when its founders started their first seeds and cuttings. There is a famous childhood story of one them, buying cuttings and growing supplies at the Sinsemilla Fan Club – with his grandmother! The Ceres Seeds team was learning the ropes back then. In the early 1990s, they worked for the old, infamous Dreadlock Coffeeshop in Amsterdam's Red Light District, as well at reputable seed companies such as Sensi Seed Bank, where they learned how to produce and cross strong, healthy plants.
Ceres Seeds’ original (land-race) seeds came from the imported Jamaican, Thai, and Colombian weed that formed the stock of many Coffeeshops in Amsterdam before the modern varieties took over. With a little help from their friends throughout the Dutch cannabis industry, Ceres Seeds also acquired some Indica-dominant varieties that had been in already Holland for many generations.
After 12 years of growing, testing and experimenting with many different cannabis varieties, Paradise Seeds was founded in 1994. About 25 years ago in Amsterdam, many coffeeshops started to sell imported hash from India Afghanistan or Morocco and weed from Thailand, Columbia, Mexico or Malawi. Most of this was of poor quality. But things were changing, new types were introduced from the U.S that were early crossbreeds of already higher quality. Since then Paradise Seeds got involved in the early research for better quality strains. This took place in Amsterdam and at several outdoor locations in Holland. The aim was to create better weed, with a sweet / spicy taste and stronger high, for own use.
