Like many seed banks worldwide, Serious Seeds began with one man’s journey, and for Serious Seeds, that man is Simon.
The founder of Serious Seeds, Simon, started life as a non-smoker. However, in 1986 during a trip to Africa, he discovered his love for marijuana. For nearly a decade, Simon cultivated genetics for personal use, experimenting with his favourite strains to satisfy his own tastes.
However, as more people began trying his product, he changed professions from high school to full-time breeder with Sensi Seeds. After a year of working in a popular seed bank with Sensi, Simon decided to start his own company, and in 1995, Serious Seeds was born.
Immediate success ensued, with a Cannabis Cup win in Serious Seeds’ first year as an active seed bank. That was followed up a year later with another Cannabis Cup win for his White Russian strain. An amazing start for such a new breeder.
Simon has always been keen to keep Serious Seeds a relatively small seed bank. However, their size has never diminished the quality of their seeds or their reputation as one of the most coveted seed banks in the world.
Here are our favourite Serious Seeds for sale at Seedsman:
White Russian – Serious Seeds Reviews
The plants yield very powerful buds, coated with resin. It produces a very strong, long lasting high, more cerebral than knockout. It is a popular medicinal plant. These seeds can produce plants that are fantastic in both appearance, and effect. One of the most typically indica strains, White Russian is a stable cross of AK-47 and White Widow (a prize winning indica clone).
Medium height, consistent plants and dense, very resinous flower tops (crystals appear after about 5 weeks of flowering). With such a strong indica background, the plants smell quite strong during both their growth and flowering period.
Kali Mist – Serious Seeds Reviews
Arguably the top sativa strain available today. With 90% sativa genetics, Kali Mist grows into tall, running, classically sativa plants with very few leaves. This strain produces dense clusters of full fluffy buds, producing much higher yields than you would expect.
The plant structure and few leaves allow the light to pass all the way to lower branches, allowing bottom buds to develop fully. When planted outside early in the year this plant can grow very tall, with spiralling flowers, a high resin content and a delightfully spicy scent. Kali Mist is often the choice of experts for their own personal grows. Also, particularly women seem to like this strain, next to the sheer pleasure of smoking it, we received several reports that it works great against menstrual cramps.
We are proud to announce that Kali Mist was improved in 2000 to produce bigger yields. In Spain, it proved to be very mould-resistant, even outside during bad weather. This strain has a flavour and subtle cerebral effect that gave it a Cannabis Cup first prize in 1995 (Hydro Cup) and again (with this new and improved version) in 2000 (Seed Company Sativa Cup)! Without a doubt the choice for connoisseur stash. Gives a very strong, clear and energizing High.
Double Dutch – Serious Seeds Reviews
Serious Seeds are proud to announce that they have incorporated 5 new strains originally developed and sold by Magus Genetics. The assortment of this small Dutch Seed Company fits wonderfully well into the menu of Serious Seeds.
Just like Serious Seeds, Magus has produced only a few seeds with unique and superb characteristics because of the outstanding quality; they have won several awards and, more importantly, are loved very much by the people who’ve tried them. Double Dutch is a cross between a Warlock male and a (Serious) Chronic.
Double Dutch shows its Indica side with its wide leaves, heavy stem, and a bushy growth pattern during vegetative growth. In the flowering stage, Double Dutch produces giant Sativa-like buds, like its mother, the Chronic. All tips that receive enough light will form huge buds similar to elongated popcorn balls. Double Dutch buds must be staked due to their heavyweight. The Double Dutch aroma is a pleasant fruity wildflower scent. The effect is complex and strong; the cerebral high and pleasant bodily effect gave this plant several awards.
AK47 – Serious Seeds Reviews
This easy to grow strain is one of the most popular. It is of medium height and produces good yields quite quickly. It is an extremely strong smoke, and in turn, has a very strong odour. The name was given not out of any idea of violence, but more in association with the ‘one hit wonder’ that the smoke is. These plants have a short flowering period for a sativa, producing compact, not too leafy buds that gleam with a coat of resin crystals.
