The Dutch seed bank Serious Seeds is one of the most famous seed banks in the world thanks to being pioneers in creating and selling stable strains that produce amazing results, designed for both indoor growing and outdoor growing.
Their story goes back to 1986, when their founder, a biologist called Simon travelled to Africa where he discovered cannabis’s curative properties. In 94, Simon started to work at Sensi Seeds, where he learnt everything he needed to know to found Serious Seeds a year later.
Serious Seeds Classic Strains
The team over at Sensi Seeds has an incredible wealth of experience, which is why they’re capable of offering classic old school strains that are still high in demand nowadays in Dutch coffee chops.
A great example of this is one of their most emblematic strains, AK 47, a strain that has won over 20 prizes and competitions around the world. AK-47 genes contain strains from Mexico, Colombia, Afghanistan and Thailand; the resulting strain produces a peculiar sandalwood aroma alongside a sweet, flowery flavour. Its effect is potent and mental thanks to its sativa-dominance.
Another classic by Serious Seeds is Chronic, and you could even say that it’s their most high yielding strain. It’s ideal for commercial growers and for those that are looking to keep their pantry stocked all year. This strain is known for its relaxing effect and potent, long-lasting mental effect, perfect for reducing stress. It produces soft, sweet aromas with flowery hints if cured properly.
Another strain well worth mentioning is Kali Mist, a strain known for being entirely sativa, producing incredibly potent mental effects. This strain has won multiple competitions ever since the 90s, and it’s still one of the most sought-after strains. It has a sweet and creamy flavour with hints of spice, ideal for those looking to enjoy some old school flavours.
Serious Seeds Feminized Seeds
Serious Seeds is constantly innovating, with hybrid strains made from crossing both classic and new strains; the results are spectacular.
Serious Happiness is a strain created using two amazing strains, Warlock and AK-47. This strain turns out to be quite easy to grow, as well as nice and sturdy. It’s a balanced strain, producing a happy and relaxed effect, ideal for social reunions. It has a fruity, spicy and long-lasting flavour.
Serious 6 is another sativa-dominant hybrid that was obtained using Canadian and African strains. This plant flowers fast and it grows strong with a highly sativa structure. It produces a fruity flavour with hints of liquorice, accompanied by a euphoric and mental effect which makes it the ideal strain for those into creative activities.
If you’re looking for an indica hybrid, check out Serious Kush, a potent cross between White Russian and OG Kush, which results in a plant that produces intense, relaxing effects. This strain produces a flavour that’s similar to charas, a type of traditional Indian and Pakistani hash that’s sweet and earthy. This cannabis strain produces high levels of THC, ideal for resin extracts.
Serious Seeds CBD Strains
As well as producing strains high in THC, Serious Seeds also knows how important medicinal consumption is for certain consumers, and the amazing properties of CBD or Cannabidiol. They have plenty of classic strains with high CBD levels.
This cannabinoid is present in most cannabis strains, although some more than others. Strains with high amounts of CBD and low amounts of THC, helping to reduce or even get rid of the psychoactive effect associated with cannabis. Multiple scientific studies have concluded that CBD has beneficial medicinal properties, which can act as an anti-inflammatory, provides pain relief, and a muscle relaxant. This is why CBD-rich strains are a great choice for medicinal consumers looking to obtain benefits without the psychoactive effects of THC.
CBD Chronic is the CBD-rich version of one of Serious’ Seeds best strains. The team of breeders at this seed bank created this strain by crossing their own Chronic with Remedy by CBD Crew. The resulting plant has a 1:1 THC/CBD ratio, producing a calming effect alongside moderate psychoactivity. It’s also ideal for recreational consumers that want to enjoy its sweet, flowery flavour.
CBD Warlock produces a soft psychoactive effect due to its 2:1 THC/CBD ratio. The resulting plant is ideal for recreational consumers who don’t want intense effects, or medicinal consumers who would also like to experience low levels of THC.
