What is a California seed bank and where can I find one?

Cannabis may seem like it’s some top-secret, ethereal organism, but it grows from a seed like any other plant. For growers of all expertise levels, cannabis seeds are a vital resource for getting their crops started.

Big grows and little self-contained plant experiments alike all came from a seed — though maybe from a clone that came from a plant that came from a seed. The seeds themselves are part of cannabis lore and legend — as cultivation technology flourished, they became less prevalent in any given sack of weed.

Buying seeds is something you see advertised online, and while many growers all over the world use this method, California has easy access at places designed especially to get you the right starting materials, seed or clone.

Where to get quality seeds in California

A “seed bank” is that place, and it’s a strategy that farmers have used for thousands of years. Even self-sowing plants might need a little help from the elements, and cannabis is no different. Protecting weed seeds from the environment (or from being eaten by animals, as many are viable food sources), is one of the foundations of agriculture. Today’s seed banks are mostly shops versus community-operated storage.

The west coast allows for cultivation on a level that is largely owed to the plant’s popularity in states like California, which has informed counterculture. Cannabis is also largely dependent on sunny climes. The seed banks in the Golden State concentrate in the cannabis-heavy Humboldt/Trinity county areas, like Grower’s Choice Cannabis Seeds, but they are harder to find elsewhere.

At a seed bank, you can find starters of sometimes hundreds of cultivars, in seed or clone. These are the bones of any type of cultivation system and where you can find information about parentage via genetics. Sometimes the storied history of any given strain is also part of the sales pitch.

Some seed banks are collectively sourced, others are proprietary and involve the breeding products of just that company. In California, it is legal to have seeds stored, and any year now, interstate commerce in the cannabis sector could open up these seed banks to the rest of the country and perhaps, the world. Until then, buying seeds online isn’t legal.

When that happens, the decades of intense breeding and cataloging by tireless cannabis pros will be available to everyone, not just those in the immediate area.

How to Get Your Local Cannabis Seeds and Clones

As we’ve said around these parts before, “When the Snow Season Ends, the Grow Season Begins“, and even if the ‘Rona hadn’t shut down public gatherings and prematurely ended ski season, late March / early April is the ideal time of the year to start getting your cannabis plants ready for outdoor cultivation.

Not surprisingly, we’ve been getting a TON of inquiries for people looking for both seeds and clones, and since we’ve got a lot of very talented grower friends in Vermont, and it’s more important than ever to both support our local neighbors, and to be more self-sufficient yourself. So, it’s time to give the people what they want, and to activate the Vermontijuana network in order to connect you with locally-sourced seeds and clones.

We’re not in the retail business and Vermontijuana won’t be selling anything directly, that’s not how this works. What we’re going to provide is a match-making service for our growing list of vetted Vermontijuana cultivators and let you all take it from there. For seeds, skip below and follow the links for locally-sourced beans; for clones, keep reading, as it’s a little more complicated.

Before we go any farther, some HUGE and VERY IMPORTANT caveats: it takes good genetics and good cultivation practices to harvest outstanding cannabis, so just because you get a pack of seeds or a cutting of an amazing plant doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to have the same results. We can’t guarantee every seed/clone will be perfect, and we certainly can’t guarantee that you’ll successfully cultivate it, especially outdoors in Vermont.

Seeds

For those looking for seeds, the most direct Vermont recommendations that we can share are Emerald Rose Seeds and Sherpa Seeds. When you’re on EmeraldRoseSeeds.com, make sure to check out Vermont-based Ice Petal Flower Genetics (@icepetalflowergenetics), winners of two different categories in the original Headies contest and some of the most respected growers and breeders in the entire region.

Sherpa Seeds have also been breeding in Vermont since before it was cool, and have a similarly excellent track record and reputation. The Sherpa Seeds website may or may not be updated, so if you’re ready to order, we recommend sending a DM to @sherpa_seeds on Instagram if you’ve got questions. Rat Trap, Bird Song, Pig Pen, and Fly Tape are all proven outdoor winners in northern Vermont.

If you’re looking for a wider variety of genetics (autoflowers, feminized seeds, etc), then Archive Seed Bank is the place to go. If you really want to shop around, seedsherenow.com and dcseedexchange.com are two other great resources; however, the Archive team have consistently shown love to the Vermont community and they frequently attend events across the northeast, so they get the nod for online sales.

Wherever you get your seeds, plan to pay at least $50 for ‘standard’ (meaning there are male and female, ideally at least 50/50 ratio) seeds, and at least $100 for feminized (all female) seeds. If you’re paying over $100 for seeds, do your homework and make sure that you read a few reviews — searching Instagram is the fastest way to find ‘testers’ grown by the breeders and other customers.

Clones

For those looking for clones, it’s a slightly more complex process, and it’s only available to Vermontijuana subscribers ($2/month available here). If (when) you ARE a paid subscriber looking for trustworthy clones in Vermont, we’ll privately share the updated list of what’s available, and then work with you to set up a personal introduction and/or direct transfer.

As part of the vetting service for our subscribers, we’ll provide pictures of the clone, the mother plant, and most importantly, the bud that it produces. Registered patients and/or caregivers in need and facing hardship can always get discounted/free clones. Clones come in a variety of forms and sizes, and depending on the breeder(s) location and preference, the clones available may be rooted in soil, or unrooted for you to plant but most breeders value clones at $10-25 depending on the strain and if they’re rooted.

NOTE: There are definitely some OGs from around Vermont who have been left off this list, which will continue to evolve as we hear from more breeders and cultivators about what’s available publicly and privately. If you have Vermont-grown genetics available and would like to be added to the public and/or private list to receive vetted referrals, email [email protected] or DM @Vermontijuana on Instagram.
