As part of our 5+5 promotion, Seedsman is sitting down with the breeders involved to learn a little bit more about who they are. Up first is Royal Queen Seeds, a truly legendary figure in the seed bank world.
Right now on Seedsman, add a 5 pack of Royal Queen Seeds to your order and you will then receive a promo pack of 5 free seeds of the same type as your purchase (fem or auto fem) from the same breeder.
If you have purchased fem seeds you will be sent 5 free fem seeds and if you order autos you will receive 5 auto free seeds! These will be automatically added to your cart.
Here’s Royal Queen:
It’s been five years since we last interviewed you! What’s been the most signiﬁcant change at Royal Queen Seeds in that time?
A lot has happened! Not only for Royal Queen Seeds, but globally. There have been gradual changes in the mindset of our society—reﬂected in the growing acceptance of cannabis around the world and the legalization of the herb in various counties—which are slowly helping to remove the stigma surrounding the plant…
All these external changes have shaped and legitimised our commitment even more. At this point, we are more than exultant to share the most reliable genetics with home growers, so they can enjoy them on their own. But we are also happy to keep learning more about the plant—from its genetics and growing characteristics to its effects on our bodies—and share it with the world. It’s a liberating feeling: more knowledge brings better decisions.
Besides those feelings, we’ve added a new line of regular cannabis seeds to our catalogue, making it possible for home growers to breed their own genetics from a quality starting point. And following the same spirit, we have also developed bio-nutrients that are easy to use, powerful, and reliable.
Finally, we would like to say that we are working on lowering our footprint, and we will soon have a complete catalogue of eco-friendly products, starting with our line of freebies but soon to include other practical and high-quality, sustainable products—both merchandise and growing equipment.
Your Gelato strains are really popular on Seedsman. For those that love the Gelato collection, what else do you recommend they check out?
And I would personally recommend Royal Gorilla, Royal Cookies, and Northern Light Automatic. Northern Light Auto is well-known around the globe, but the others have become classics fast—and we’ve been getting tons of amazing feedback.
Any new strains on the horizon we should keep a lookout for?
Royal Queen Seeds is always working toward offering the latest and best genetics. Currently, we are in the middle of the breeding process and the necessary stabilisation of traits, which takes time.
We will soon share some news about it, but we can give a hint: some new automatics are coming! Stay tuned for more.
Are there plans to add another physical store, or has the last year of lockdown changed that?
We could say we were born near the people, in the heart of the Red Light District, and we plan to remain close to cannabis lovers and growers.
The lockdown has evolved our plans surrounding our stores, but maybe for the better. We reorganised our shops in Barcelona and just opened a bigger and more spectacular shop in the core of Ciutat Vella, next to Las Ramblas, where you can’t miss us. That way, we are focusing on a sole location that’s more convenient, where we can help anyone who stops by.
That being said, we have two more beautiful shops in Amsterdam (one in the fancy Harleemstrat and another one in the centre of the Red Light District) and one more in the exotic and exclusive Marbella.
The idea is to always remain approachable and present in key places around the globe. There is deﬁnitively more news to come!
What does the future hold for Royal Queen Seeds?
The future is greener than ever, but it’s evolving fast. That’s why at Royal Queen Seeds we are continually moving and planning the next steps. First, we are developing a new research branch that will keep pushing the boundaries of our genetics and growing processes, serving our community and the global cannabis market. Second, we will still ﬁght for accurate and honest information surrounding the plant to empower our society. And lastly, we wish to expand to new continents!
