Purple City Genetics

Purple City Genetics (PCG) is an award-winning, Oakland-based collective known for cultivating unique cannabis phenotypes bred for potency, optimum yield, and superior terpene production. Our clones are absolutely free of molds, pests, and airborne contaminants. We’re extremely serious about clean, organic cannabis and the pesticide laws and regulations as defined by the DPR and CAC – as standard practice we regularly submit our leaf matter for testing to ensure cleanliness and compliance. Since 2008, our guiding principle has been simple: cultivate only the best cannabis strains and grow the highest quality plants.

The foundation of successful cannabis cultivation begins with use of healthy plant starts. Inherent in each clone is the entire potential of an adult plant. For this reason, PCG deliberately propagates premium genetic lines in order to produce the best qualities in every adult plant. We have spent decades selecting and breeding phenotypes — developing unique nutrient enrichment through the use of specialized equipment — and ultimately creating unmatched genetic potential within each clone. We further refine and perfect each genetic line by integrating feedback from customers, cultivation partners and dispensaries.

PCG’s commitment to the genetic excellence of our clones draws from three decades of horticultural and agricultural experience. We systematically bring forth uniform quality, root growth, height, and performance in each clone. Our clones are grown in state-of-the-art facilities — using proven scientific techniques — that naturally enhance each plant’s potency, vitality, and immune system. We continuously strive to achieve our goal of developing the highest quality genetic material, propagated from the most desirable lines.


These varieties are the backbone of our program. These genetics are well-known favorites that have proven out over time and are more straightforward to cultivate.


These emergent genetics are the vanguard of our program — they’re visions of the future. These varieties are often favored by experienced growers who favor exotics.


Collaborations are seasonals brought to market with a partner. We may help stabilize genetics for a seed producer or invest with partners to define next market.

Purple City

It starts with a simple cut: One snip of the scissors, one slice of the blade, one dip of the clone. Plant, water, cut, root, sell. These are the basics of the nursery and yet it takes a lifetime to truly cultivate cannabis.

We stand by every cut we’ve ever produced and we care about the community that brings her to flower: farmers, waterers, trimmers, cultivators, brokers, clubs and smokers.

We care about the herb. Our mission is to provide the best genetics possible. We search through hundreds of seeds every year looking for just one or two cuts worthy of the Purple City roster: high THC, unbelievable terps, high return in concentrates. We want our unique California heritage to live forever.
