What do you do when you win innumerable Cannabis Cup awards and become number one in Amsterdam’s coffeeshops? You release your own line of weed seeds, that’s what!
Super Strains, the breeders behind the highly praised, perennially popularOriginal Amnesia, have done just that. This seed bank offers an award-winning range of high performing feminized strains perfect for any connoisseur, with a focus on old-school genetics and high-quality, astoundingly generous yielding crops.
Though technically founded back in 2010 in Holland, the dedicated work of Super Strains reaches back for many years prior.
For decades, the work of this now-renowned seed bank existed solely as sub-activities for fertilizer manufacturing company HY-PRO. The shift from secondary project to independent entity came about as a natural consequence in the wake of the introduction and rising interest in feminized cannabis seeds.
The year was 2000 and feminized seeds had reached the marijuana masses, although the market remained divided of opinion towards these fresh-faced female weed seeds.
For Super Strains, this was the moment their work truly blossomed and breeding became so much more established for the offshoot of HY-PRO. Their work demanded more independence, more concentration and control, and so Super Strains as a definitive division of HY-PRO began taking shape.
However, to fully understand this seed bank’s success, we need to take things back even further in their illustrious history.
The Home of Amnesia
Despite not establishing themselves as a separate entity until 2010, these Dutch weed wizards have been evolving their game a lot longer. In fact, they’re one of the oldest seed banks in the Netherlands!
It was through their extensive experiments and efforts to merge the finest properties of the old-school genetics at their disposal that they created the global sensation known as Amnesia, a name so synonymous with cannabis to carry meaning with even the non-partakers of the world.
Since 1996, they’ve been known as the Home of Amnesia in Holland, sold through the Amsterdam Seed Center and famed for their notable Haze varieties.
Raising the Stakes
Of course you’ve heard of Amnesia.
You should know of Amnesia Haze, too. Well, it was Super Strains’ tireless efforts to combine optimal potency, cultivation ease, flavor, effect and resilience which brought about this outstanding strain - a veritable legend, recommended at every coffeeshop and with no equal in appeal (or so many agree).
In fact, Amnesia Haze is so famed, so unrivalled even to this day, that it is still one of the most potent and generous yielders on the market.
When their combination of crossing and breeding techniques met with feminized seeds and Super Strains released this perennial favorite, it’s easy to see how they secured their leading status as one of the finest seed banks in Holland.
30+ Years of Original Dutch Genetics
The guiding principle behind such a long and illustrious career with cannabis has been a simple one for Super Strains - to select only the very finest Indica and Sativa strains for their gene pools and release only strains guaranteed to delight their connoisseur consumers.
When you consider the badge of respect and honor to rightfully claim yourself as the parent of so many astounding weed varieties, it’s no wonder how they reached industry-leading status concerning the finest strains on the market.
These days, their attention to detail remains as attentive as ever, with particular efforts paid to understanding the genetic stability, heritability and lineage of their strains.
This unparalleled level of understanding the plants they work with has been integral not only in cultivating the loyalty of Super Strains’ recreational user base, but has also been invaluable in comprehending the medical applications of their products for the ever-growing community of medicinal marijuana users.
The majority of Super Strains’ offerings consist of feminized seeds designed for ease of cultivation, however, that’s not to say there are no regular seeds in their stock for the breeders out there. (In fact, there’s some real rarities in this collection!)
Their plants are known to grow large and tough, ideal for growing outdoors while remaining a perfect fit for indoor environments, too, where they can be trained to deliver some enormous yields.
Super Strains’ seeds come to us from a vast range of premium old-school genetics where only the best available properties have been considered. We’ll take a look at some of their finest strains below.
Of course, no trip to the Super Strains store can be considered complete without a look at the legendary Amnesia, a strain with no equal in over 20 years.
