Presenting Dank Genetics

Dank Genetics is a seed bank created from a community of growers from around the world established in the UK, formed with the intention of creating excellent quality cannabis strains either as regular or feminised seeds.

The search for genetic excellence has led Dank Genetics to use only the best strains on the market to make their own dank creations. So, unless the new genetics can pass their strict quality tests, they won’t be distributed, which means we can safely say that all of the strains presented by Dank Genetics are excellent options. Let’s look through the most representative current strains of this exciting seed bank below.

Summer’s here! Time to relax and enjoy the sun

It’s high summer and many of us are on vacation or preparing to go camping, to festivals, or to simply relax, enjoy the sun and have a good time. For cannabis lovers, the long summer holidays also represent the best opportunity to calmly savour our harvest… for example, enjoying a quiet summer afternoon with a good Sativa can be priceless, or taking a dip at the beach after a nice tasty dab.

In this article we’d like to suggest a few products from our catalogue that we think are ideal for cannabis smokers on holiday or who simply want to enjoy summer and share their herb with their friends in a comfortable and easy way.

Happy swimming!

The colours of cannabis

Pakistan Chitral Kush, Grape Ape, Grandaddy Purple, Serious Six, Peyote Purple, Panama Red…all of these cannabis strains show a wonderful colour palette which goes from reddish to purple. Indeed, and while the most common colour in cannabis is green, both leaves and buds may turn orange, pink, purple, black, red, blue…These awesome colours are often one of the traits that breeders want to fix, since it is also one of the most demanded traits by users. 93% of cannabis smokers have noted that they’ve been influenced by the colour of the strain sometime. But, how does cannabis develop such beautiful shades?

Presenting BSF Seeds at Alchimia

We’ve recently added a new Spanish bank to our feminised seed catalogue, a bank that, despite its young age (it was founded in 2017, although they’ve been working on it since 2011), has already aroused enormous interest among cannabis growers and users. We’re talking about BSF Seeds, short for Bigger, Stronger and Faster that perfectly sums up the philosophy of this team of breeders when it comes to developing the cannabis varieties they offer. In this article we’ll familiarise you with this seed bank and its work.

Introducing Cli-Mate Controllers

If we have a look at all the different pieces of equipment we need to set up an indoor cannabis grow, we can see that they fall into one of several categories according to the role they play in the grow tent: Illumination, ventilation, humidity control and heating are the main elements responsible for recreating as close as possible the natural cycles and ideal conditions for plant growth. The proper control and adjustment of these elements is crucial to achieving a great final result, with a healthy yield of the highest quality flowers.

Over time, various electronic devices designed to control the climate in cannabis grows have appeared on the market, these devices connect and coordinate all the elements required to recreate sunlight and climate, making it possible to program photoperiods, control air intake and extraction, and regulate temperature, humidity and pressure.

The air conditioning of a grow space must be optimised to create the ideal environment for the plants development.

Origins of Brothers Grimm Seeds and interview with MrSoul

The history of this North American cannabis seed company Brothers Grimm is quite uncommon, especially if we take into account the huge success of their strains since they were first introduced in the market in 1996. Indeed, and before their withdrawal from the seed market in 2002, some of their genetics had already become true classics in the cannabis scene, with names that will surely sound familiar to you: Cinderella 99, Apollo 13, Killer Queen or Rosetta Stone just to name a few. Over time, this varieties have also become the baselines for many other hybrids from breeders across the globe.
