Are local cannabis seeds any good?
The short answer – yes, local seeds produced in South Africa are just as good, if not better than international seeds at a 3rd of the price and available immediately.
The long answer – Seeds are brought into South Africa and reproduced with the exact same genetics, just under a different breeder’s name. So you won’t have the bragging rights of claiming it’s from “Sensi Seeds” or “Green House Seed Company..”, but the look of the bud, taste and effect will be almost identical. Local breeders also cross-breed international with international or international with local strains (Same selective breeding process as international award-winning breeders) to produce unique strains with unique characteristics that they can claim as their own.
Personally we advise to support local breeders as South African cannabis seeds are just as good as international seeds – Not only will you be helping to create local jobs, you will be getting excellent genetics.
