About Mandala Seeds
Mandala Seeds was founded in January, 2004 by Mike & Jasmin. Their personal history is a mixture of adventure, travel, and a keen interest in studying, cultivating, and preserving cannabis and other shamanic healing plants. They have pioneered several unique breeding and seed production methods whose benefits are valued by growers world wide. Mandala Seeds is co-supervised by Jasmin, a biologist with work experience in the fields of horticulture and agriculture. Both owners not only share extensive professional experience through creating and distributing the Mandala Seeds genetics, but also regularly contribute articles on growing and cannabis botany in international publications.
The aim of Mandala Seeds is to provide a consistent high level of quality genetics and seeds at a minimal price. They believe in ‘green economics’ - an ideal based on mutual respect for humans and nature. Mandala Seeds business is therefore based on respect, honesty, transparency, and responsibility towards the customer. Capitalism focuses exclusively on the accumulation of wealth and a high profit margin and disregards any effects it’s policies has on society or the planet. It is a system that burns up human and ecological resources and gives very little back.
To achieve these goals Mandala Seeds knew that the company had to be structured and managed in a radically different way from the standard approaches. Much thought is put into how to save costs so that their seed prices remain customer friendly. A lot can be done by restricting so-called ‘overheads’, or business expenses, and by living on a modest income. They combine various money saving tactics to keep the company budget streamlined, even if this means having less media exposure and not taking part in high profile events. Their decision to take the road less traveled has never been a cause of regret and, although the journey began as a rather lonely path, during the years since then many growers world wide began to share it through support and encouragement.
