Would you agree that Cannabis is both unique and essential to mankind's sustainable existence on this planet?

Might you be willing to help with the grassroots globalization of "essential civilian demand" for Cannabis, before we run out of growing seasons needed to repair Earth's atmosphere?

"Essential civilian demand" is an accelerated, federal U.S. protocol, affording access to the strategic resource "hemp, " referred to in several documents having to do with emergency preparedness.

Thank you sincerely for your consideration.

Blessed rushes,

Paul

What is your favourite Sensi strain and your favourite non-Sensi strain and why?

Hello Andy,

My favourite Sensi Seeds strains would have to be Northern Lights, Northern Lights 5x Haze and Jack Herer. For non Sensi Seeds, I’d have to say the Diesel and Amnesia strains.

Best wishes,
Ben

1. What do you think will happen with (recreational) marijuana business in the USA over the next 5 years, and will it become a new "Amsterdam?"
2. With thousands of cultivars and hundreds of seed banks to choose from, does Ben and Sensi Seeds feel at all responsible (for lack of a better term) for the variety in the market today?
3. Do you think there are still wild patches of cannabis that have yet to be found in the world? Where do you think you'd find them?
4. When are you coming to Seattle next? :)

Hello Chris,

What do you think will happen with (recreational) marijuana business in the USA over the next 5 years, and will it become a new “Amsterdam?”

Yes, I thinks so. I can imagine that cafés will open where one can enjoy a coffee and a joint. Hopefully, one will be able to enjoy a beer there too!

With thousands of cultivars and hundreds of seed banks to choose from, does Ben and Sensi Seeds feel at all responsible (for lack of a better term) for the variety in the market today?

I really feel proud that our genetics became a platform for an entire industry to develop from. It wasn’t just me though, the coffeeshops are responsible for making the industry what it has become. [They] were behind the first cannabis magazines such as Bob Warren, the man behind Highest Magazine, which launched in 1986.
When we started to sell the seeds, we also [sold] fertilizers, and books. All the authors came to us and most of them saw what we did and wrote it down and taught us what they knew in exchange. This was crucial to educating cannabis enthusiasts the world over!

Do you think there are still wild patches of cannabis that have yet to be found in the world? Where do you think you’d find them?

I know that for a fact . 100%. We are currently busy discovering and gathering new ones in Eastern Europe, and to gather the ones we know of from their original locations, which is proving very difficult in certain cases as some of them have disappeared from nature and it is a question of finding the people who might still have them preserved somewhere.

As to Seattle, I have nothing planned in just yet.

Best wishes,
Ben
