Jamaican Blueberry BX, introducing our Regular Line

Jamaican Blueberry BX, introducing our Regular Line

Regular seeds are the basis of all cannabis varieties known today. Despite the success of feminized seeds, which took over the seed market almost a couple of decades ago, many growers still prefer regular strains for several reasons, such as originality of genetics, quality or breeding purposes.

The origins of most feminized seeds marketed today come from señlections of regular seeds made at the end of the past century, which were then used to make the first feminized cannabis hybrids. Philosopher Seeds want to honour these strains with our new Regular Line, a collection of regular seeds that we present you in this article fith the first inclusion, Jamaican Blueberry BX. We'll soon add new and amazing regular strains in this Line, so stay tuned!

Lemon OG Candy by Philosopher Seeds

Lemon OG Candy by Philosopher Seeds

The Philosopher Seeds crew is amazed with the success of one of the last strains added to our catalog, especifically to our Golo Line: Lemon OG Candy. It is awesome to see how all the time and work invested in this project have borne fruit, thus creating one of the best and most appreciated strains in our collection. We're pretty sure that she'll give us plenty of joy and great moments!

Lemon OG Candy is a hybrid between an exceptional Haze plant and an own selection of the popular and acclaimed Super Lemon OG. It combines the best traits of both parents in an explosive mix of flavor, scent and stimulant, uplifting effect. As we see, these chacacteristics make it ideal for those looking for quality Haze genetics, rich in nuances and easy to grow, without a prolonged bloom period.

Cannabis in Argentina

Cannabis in Argentina

Regulating cannabis, either for medical or recreational purposes, is still an issue that every country must face individually, especially after the failure of UNGASS 2016, where a way to develop global drug policies could not be found. However, in 2016 we've seen great advances with regard to decriminalise cannabis use, particularly in Latin America. In this article we'll take a look at the current situation of cannabis in Argentina (the last country to approve its therapeutic use) and also at the importance of social movements, which with their tenacity and efforts have achieved that the government takes a step forward.

Back in 2013, Uruguay already became the first country to legalize medical and recreational cannabis use, sale and production (controlled by the State). Soon after, Colombia and Chile regulated the therapeutic use. Now, it is time for Argentina, which has allowed the import and distribution of cannabis oil (although many people claim that this is not enough since growing is still illegal).

Name change of 6 of our strains

Name change of 6 of our strains

Initially, when we started developing cannabis varieties, we were most concerned about genetics rather than anything else. After this time focused on breeding tasks, it is now time to pay more attention to communication. This is why we have changed some names of our strains, to make them easier to understand in other languages and thus avoid confusion.

Philosopher Seeds at Canapa Mundi, Italia

Philosopher Seeds at Canapa Mundi, Italia

Philosopher Seeds’ first steps in Italy

About two years ago, our team landed in Italy, just when the cannabis industry had just come out from a harsh persecution that had lasted several years. At that time, not many brands were interested in investing in this country. Both the stringent laws regarding drug use and the strong presence of the church in institutions made this beautiful country a difficult place where cannabis cultivation for self-supply was unlikely to prosper. At present, a change in the course of events seems to be happening, since the end of the Fini Giovanardi law has been the starting point for many growers to get out of the closet as they don’t feel persecuted for growing marijuana for their self-supply. Many people are interested now in starting cannabis-related businesses,  while growers and users are joining groups of cannabis activists to make their contribution.

CBD marijuana strains from Philosopher seeds

CBD marijuana strains from Philosopher seeds

Philosopher seeds was established as a collective of marijuana breeders who share their genetic collections and create new hybrids with new features. Among this group of breeders we find the passion and experience of one of the pioneers of cannabis breeding in Catalonia, Jimi from Reggae Seeds, creator of the renowned strain Juanita la Lagrimosa - the first recognized high CBD commercial strain – and other famous hybrids that have entered the cannabis seed market through several seedbanks.

It all started when Jimi bought a batch of New York City Diesel seeds from Soma Seeds in which he found a male capable of transmitting its high CBD content to its offspring.  Jimi pollinated some female plants with this male, creating what would become his first breeding lines, where he found that all resulting hybrids offered CBD levels never seen before (up to 10%) in a variable percentage. This was also the beginning of the relationship between CBD and Philosopher Seeds.
