The Real Seed Company specializes in landrace Cannabis strains. We’re a group of seed collectors focused on pure, authentic landraces from Asia, the original homeland of Cannabis and its most crucial centre of biodiversity. We directly source landrace seeds from historic centres of cultivation such as the Hindu Kush, India, Lebanon, Nepal, Thailand, and Laos.
Since 2007, we’ve made these Cannabis seeds available through our websites. Landraces are an invaluable repository of biodiversity, and our ultimate goal is for these seeds to be preserved long-term and for any research findings based on them to be freely available to all.
We aim to provide the maximum possible transparency regarding any seeds listed. Where they are reproductions of the original accession or obtained indirectly, this is clearly stated in their description. We do not sell hybridized or feminized seed, and if any risk exists that a landrace may have been affected by modern hybrids this is indicated. We believe this is essential to respect the plants, the farmers who’ve maintained them through decades of prohibition, and collectors who are motivated by a sincere passion for Cannabis and its biodiversity.
Because the cultivation of Cannabis sativa L. without a license is illegal in most countries, all seeds are sold in protective packaging which is well-suited to long-term storage through refrigeration with silica gel, the best method for maintaining these invaluable landraces for our emerging post-prohibition era.
