Serious Seeds was founded by Simon, a former biology teacher who became fascinated by cannabis after a trip to Africa in the early eighties. He started collecting seeds purely out of interest, but soon became fanatical about crossing top-quality strains to create all-new breeds.

INFORMATION ABOUT SERIOUS SEEDS
Serious Seeds are well known for their top-quality cannabis seeds, so we thought we would dedicate a bit of time to find out all about them.
The origins of Serious can be traced back to one man, Simon, breeder and founder of the seed bank. It was back in university in Amsterdam that Simon first laid the foundations for the master breeder he would turn into. He was studying biology, and at this point, he was a non-smoker – due to an aversion to tobacco, and weed being mixed with tobacco as a standard in the Netherlands. However, in 1986 he discovered the wonders of smoking marijuana in a pure form, and his life was changed forever.
From here Simon made it his mission to collect a personal library of cannabis seeds, using a growing number of contacts to obtain rare and interesting varieties. Back in the day, genetic background was not as easy to determine – there was no internet and common knowledge to spread easily. It led to a lot of experimentation, crossing the best specimens that grew from these seeds and using them to supply a personal stash.
Although he was working as a high school teacher at the time, his growing reputation eventually led Alan Dronkers of Sensi Seeds to get in contact, asking Simon to work with them as a breeder. After a while of working with Sensi Seeds, Simon decided to go his own way, working on a few collaborative projects with other breeders that resulted in the infamous classic AK-47 and Chronic.
Eventually, in 1995, he founded his own seed bank and Serious Seeds was born. From here the seed bank went on to become in instant hit, winning multiple awards for such classics as Kali Mist and the aforementioned AK-47 and Chronic. Their bud was stocked throughout Amsterdam within the coffee shops as a customer favourite.
To this day, the focus of Serious Seeds has been on quality. Despite their popularity, Serious Seeds have endeavoured to remain small and dedicated – not focusing on large commercialisation, producing new strains every year, or entering every competition they can. Instead, they have focused their time on what matters, producing and refining one of the best selection of cannabis seeds available.
PACKAGING SERIOUS SEEDS
It’s not just cannabis seeds that Serious Seeds are serious about. They also treat customer care with the utmost of importance. As such, you can rest assured that their seed packaging does the job well. Each set of seeds is sealed in a hard plastic tube to ensure safety. This is then enveloped in a card case, both displaying the strain’s info and keeping the seeds in the dark.
Serious Seeds’ cannabis seeds are available in both regular and feminized varieties, in quantities of 6 for feminized and 11 for regular.

History and Reputation of Serious Seeds
Serious Seeds all began with Simon, the breeder behind the brand and the founder of the company. Simon studied biology at an Amsterdam university and discovered the fantastic world of marijuana while he was travelling through Africa. Up until that point, he had always been a non-smoker, but that’s when things changed- a lot!
He immediately began collecting seeds for his private collection and, using his biology knowledge, started crossbreeding them to make his own creations. He worked for a time at Sensi Seeds before striking out on his own and forming Serious Seeds.
That same year, two of his strains won prizes in the High Times Cannabis Cup. Talk about starting off with a bang! In 2012, they acquired Magus Genetics, which had a few popular strains of its own that had become cult classics in local coffee shops. Rather than pushing out a flashy new strain each year to keep up with the other brands, Serious Seeds focuses on producing reliable, stable genetics and only releasing new products when they’re ready to be released. Because of this, they have a good reputation in the industry as producing great strains that are stable and easy for anyone to grow. They even guarantee the germination of their seeds, which earns them major points.
Seed Selection and Product Quality
The seed selection at Serious Seeds is limited to only 11 strains: AK-47, Bubble Gum, Chronic, Kali Mist, White Russian, Warlock, Double Dutch, Exile Biddy Early, Motivation and Serious Happiness. That being said, their focus is on quality and not quantity, so each of these strains is an award winning, top of the line, knock your socks off strain.
Serious Seeds is like the curated, luxury cannabis brand- they only sell the best. They also don’t rename a strain and market it as something new if they just tweak the genetics to make a few improvements, as other brands are apt to do. This cuts down on confusion for the customer while ensuring that they get the latest, greatest product. These 11 strains have earned a cumulative 62 awards in international competitions, so you know they’re “serious.”
