The team at the cannabis seed bank Barney's Farm has been selecting genetics from around the world since the 1980s.
The selection process begins with Derry, breeder and owner of the Dutch bank, who settled on the Himalayas as a starting point to begin searching for landrace strains.
Nepal was the first country in which he collected cannabis seeds, but it was far from the last. Countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Tibet, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam and China all followed years later.
Barneys Farm - feminised, regular and automatic seeds of the finest quality
This huge genetic library is what allows Barney's Farm Research Lab to create the kind of hybrids that are out of the reach of most seed banks, and to offer its customers new and exciting crosses.
Today they offer feminized auto-flowering seeds as well as regular and feminized photo-sensitive plants, guaranteeing maximum quality in the final product, whether for medicinal use with high levels of CBD or for a more recreational use that's medicinal at the same time with high THC content.
