Top 5 American Seed Banks
The order in which the American seed banks to be described will appear is not intended to be a ranking. The fact that one is described before the rest is merely situational and it should be understood that there is no favorite in the selection made today. Without further ado, we begin with a review of the characteristics of one of the most mythical US seed banks in history.
The first of the American seed banks that stands out in this list is Humboldt Seeds. The reason? its long history and excellent genetic quality of the seed specimens it introduces to the market. Humboldt Seeds began to take shape during the 60s, in one of the most important meccas for cannabis cultivation in the world: Humboldt County.
The founders of this American seed bank settle in this area of the American west coast with the aim of fleeing the repression and the bad smoke of the metropolitan areas of the country. Humboldt County was the perfect orchard to sit back and live an environmentally friendly lifestyle and in which to grow Cannabis in a safe and stable way.
This movement was called Back to the land and was closely related to the emergence of the hippie movement and the American counterculture of the 1960s. The climate was ideal for crops and gradually groups of growers began to appear who developed their own varieties of seeds, in an ecological way and respecting the natural characteristics of the plant.
Humboldt Seeds arises precisely from this, from a group of seed enthusiasts who started doing what they liked the most and which ended up becoming their profession. From this institution, they are experts in the application of innovative and eco-friendly cultivation techniques, and their containers are designed so that the properties of the seeds remain intact.
Some of the varieties that stand out most in the Humboldt Seeds catalog of seeds are Blue Dream, it is a Californian strain that brings together all the qualities of a premium USA variety: great yields, penetrating and complex aroma , powerful effects and flowering fast.

In this way, the members of Fast Buds work with seeds of Californian genetics and stabilize and select them in Spain.
The way this American seed bank works is simple: the chain of work begins with the choice of specimens of regular seeds in the United States, to be more specific in the California area. Subsequently, the specimen is stabilized and selected until the best possible version is obtained, to finally combine it with a small portion of ruderalis genes and give rise to a premium quality automatic specimen.
