Genetic preservation of seeds

Genetic preservation of cannabis seeds

The aim of our business here at www.dope-seeds.com is to use the sale of souvenir cannabis seeds in order to help preserve cannabis genetics for future generations.

Prohibition of cannabis in certain countries could lead to the extinction of some strains with the possible loss of medical, food and scientific resources.

This act of genetic preservation is seen as very important and is demonstrated by the Norwegian government’s creation of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault:

“The Svalbard Global Seed Vault (Norwegian: Svalbard globale frøhvelv) is a secure seedbank located on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen near the town of Longyearbyen in the remote Arctic Svalbard archipelago. The facility was established to preserve a wide variety of plant seeds from locations worldwide in an underground cavern. The seed vault holds duplicate samples, or “spare” copies, of seeds held in genebanks worldwide. The seed vault will provide insurance against the loss of seeds in genebanks, as well as a refuge for seeds in the case of large scale regional or global crises”

svalbard seed vault

Obviously in this industry we cannot go to such great lengths but the more of us that collect souvenir seeds the more of a genetic base we will have to work from at a time when the growing of cannabis becomes legal again.

As is the case with all plants, the more genetic examples we have the better the defence again pests and disease so we are constantly looking for new strains to add to our seedbank.

It is currently illegal to germinate cannabis seeds in the UK and we cannot sell any customer who intends to break the law.

The information provided for the strains we sell gives the genetic preservationist the knowledge he/she needs about the strain being preserved and is also available for those who live in countries where it is legal to grow cannabis.

Storage of cannabis seeds for genetic preservation

At dope-seeds.com we are committed to the genetic preservation of cannabis seeds. We do this by offering a wide range of collectable seeds for the amateur genetic preservationist and souvenir collector.

In order to keep your seeds in a viable condition for the time when it may become legal to use them storage is of the utmost importance.

Over time various biological processes go on within seeds that reduce their viability but luckily there are ways of slowing this process and keep your seeds in the best condition for longer.

In order for a seed to germinate it needs light, moisture and heat so you need to keep your seeds away from all of these elements.

Seeds should be stored in a COOL, DRY and DARK location.

A fridge is the ideal place to keep your seeds and is where they will last the longest. If you do not have a fridge, a box in cool dry place is almost as good.

If you keep your seeds in these conditions they will remain viable for many years and could be used by people in the future if and when cannabis germination laws change.
