  • Midnight Express - Freedom Seeds new strain

    Freedom Seeds Midnight Express

    Freedom Seeds Midnight ExpressAs midnight struck on New Year’s Eve we raised a toast to 2015 and our new strain – Midnight Express. After a lot of work and development we couldn’t be more excited or proud of this new autoflowering addition to the Freedom Seeds range.

    Last year, as well as releasing our groundbreaking FreeBD strain, we launched Purple Express. That strain introduced a more colourful shade of purple to our selection for the first time. With Midnight Express we take it a step further - the dark colour is what immediately sets this strain apart.

    Parts of the leaves and buds are such a deep purple they could almost be black. Add to this the coating of glistening trichromes and it’s no surprise many have likened it to a night sky full of stars.

    It’s not all about appearances though and the substance of the genetics of Midnight Express is also impressive. Including something of a role call of classic strains, she is mostly indica, with influences of Citral Kush, Blueberry and a dash of White strain for the star dust.

    As a third generation auto flowerer you can expect a plant reaching heights of up to 110cm. With generous yields of up to 550gr/m2 per plant expected in anything as quick as 55-60 days.

    Although the genetics definitely lean towards the indica the high is more sativa which is another pleasant surprise.

    We proudly give you Midnight Express – the clue’s in the name.

    Available now in a 5 seed pack for the price of just £16.95.

  • World of Seeds – new seed bank at Freedom Seeds


    World of SeedsSo last week we announced the arrival of Humboldt Seeds to the Freedom Seeds website. As you may have noticed at the end of that post we mentioned we’d be bringing in another new seed bank. And so here it is – the latest seed bank to join the Freedom Seeds line up is…
    World of Seeds.

    The World of Seeds boasts among their number chemists, pharmacists and geneticists making up their team of breeders and researchers. They have always had a focus on the medicinal possibilities of cannabis as well as refining and stabilising their landrace genetics from around the world.

    Their catalogue is divided into four collections: Medical, Autoflowering, Pure Origin and Legend.

    Medical Collection

    This range includes a number of strains bred for their high medicinal value – such as Northern Light x Big Bud, Afghan Kush x Skunk and Mazar x White Rhino.

    Autoflowering Collection

    The autoflowering collection takes a number of classic strains and crosses them with ruderalis strains such as Afghan Kush Ryder, Amnesia Auto, Northern Light x Big Bud Auto and Sugar Mango Ryder.

    World of Seeds Northern Lights x Big Bud Auto

    Pure Origin Collection

    This selection focuses on landrace strains from cannabis producing countries around the world. Includes strains like Afghan Kush, Colombian Gold, Pakistan Valley and Ketama.

    Legend Collection

    A great selection of strains including Amnesia, Strawberry Blue, Mazar Kush and a number of AK-47 crosses including Skunk 47 and New York 47.

    World of Seeds strains

    As you can see World of Seeds cover all the bases – so we’re sure you’ll find something to fit the bill. To browse the selection head on over to the World of Seeds page now.

  • Humboldt Seeds - new seed bank at Freedom Seeds


    Humboldt Seed Organization 707 HeadbandAs 2014 draws to a close we’re really pleased to announce the arrival of a new seed bank here at Freedom Seeds – Humboldt Seed Organization. It’s not often we announce the addition of a new seedbank, and with good reason. We pride ourselves on stocking the best seed banks available and we don’t just invite anyone into the Freedom family. Quality is the name of the game and we feel that Humboldt Seeds fit very nicely within that remit.

    There are certain areas that have become synonymous with the cannabis industry in the United States, one of these is the Northern Californian region known as the Emerald Triangle. The region comprises three counties: Mendocino County, Trinity County and of course Humboldt County. The cultivation of marijuana in Humboldt has been a way of life for many since the 1960s – when numerous hippy communities sprang up in the area.

    Humboldt Seed Organization have brought together a collection of some of the best strains available from various breeders and collectors around the world. Not only have Humboldt Seeds selected great genetics though, they also place a keen focus on the use of organic techniques in the production of their strains. They believe that through the use of such techniques they can produce healthier and better tasting strains and we completely agree.

    Humboldt Seeds Lemon Kush Headband

    As you may expect Humboldt Seeds shows a heavy bias towards American favourites in their range. Classics old and new such as OG Kush, Green Crack, Chemdawg and Trainwreck are joined by some truly glorious crosses such as Lemon Kush Headband, Sour Blueberry and Pineapple Skunk. They’ve also worked on some killer collaborations – working with renowned breeder Ras D from Emerald Triangle to produce Lost Coast OG. And perhaps even more interestingly Kief Sweat and Cypress Hill front man B-Real to create strains such as Dr Greenthumb’s Em Dog, Dedoverde Haze and Ewe-2. As Cypress Hill would say - when this shit goes down you better be ready!

    Humboldt Seeds 707 Headband

    And that’s not all – we’ve got another seed bank lined up for release in the next week. Curious? You should be! Keep your eyes on the Freedom Seeds pages for more details.

  • Freedom Seeds FreeBD review by Clark French

    Clark French

    Last month Clark French wrote a great article about our very own auto feminised strain Smokey Bear. With Clark's background as an MS patient and founder of the United Patients Alliance we thought he'd be the perfect person to review our latest strain - FreeBD. We produced this CBD rich strain in collaboration with the CBD Crew and we're pretty proud of the results - read on to find out what Clark thought.

    Appearance

    Long elongated sativa looking buds with quite a light pastel green colour, lots of trichomes. The buds are small but very dense. There is a nice coating of pistils coming out of each calyx, the calyxes themselves are packed in and not too bulky, they all blend together rather than standing out in foxtails.

    Freedom Seeds FreeBD

    Aroma

    The first thing you smell is a sickly sweetness, almost how parmesan cheese smells but not quite, there is also a deep and rich almost skunky earthiness. It is quite an interesting smell and one which remind me of some of the buds I got to sample in California. One strain in particular that I was given a sample of at the San Francisco Cannabis Cup in 2011. The smell is one of those things where you wouldn't quite believe it was cannabis that smelt that way!

    Flavour

    The taste is really good, the earth is really great along with the sweetness makes FreeBD a very tasty strain to medicate with. The earthiness in the low end of the flavour is reminiscent of some skunk strains I have tried and the sickly sweet higher notes definitely comes through in the taste but is more pronounced in the aroma, as with anything the taste is more definable in my Arizer Solo. In general though I'm quite happy with the taste.

    Effects

    Now here is the most interesting bit about FreeBD and that is the fact that it is a CBD rich strain. Now I got to know lots about CBD in 2011 in California and ever since trying it I have been actively seeking it. CBD is great for many people with MS. As you can see from the various anti-cannabis propaganda CBD is actually a immunosuppressive. Now in the media scare stories this is touted as a bad thing and an excuse to justify why cannabis possession is a crime. What they forget to say however is that for people with autoimmune diseases this is EXACTLY what we need. My other options for immunosuppression is a drug called Tysabri. Which is a form of chemo and infused every month (I hate needles) it has the chance of putting me into a coma which I will never wake up from and by not taking it I save the NHS tens of thousands of pounds every year!

    That is not the only benefit of CBD, a quick browse of our cannabinoid table shows CBD to be a highly medicinal cannabinoid. But not only that many of my friends without serious illnesses generally LOVE the effects of CBD rich cannabis. As I understand it CBD block the cannabinoid receptors meaning that THC uptake is much smoother and meaning that the effects last for a lot longer.

    Conclusion

    A lovely tasty and effective strain, generally I want more

  • Clark French joins Freedom Seeds as guest blogger

    Clark French

    Last month Clark French wrote a great strain review strain review for Freedom Seeds. Since then we've had the opportunity to meet Clark and are really pleased to say that he has agreed to join us on a full time basis in writing a series of blog posts. We're really excited to hear Clark's take on everything cannabis and we hope you are too. If you can think of anything you'd like him to write about please comment below and we'll see what we can do. So without further ado it's over to Clark...

    Introduction to Freedom Seeds

    Clark French at the Home OfficeHello cannabis connoisseurs, enthusiasts and anyone who is generally interested in this most beneficial plant. My name is Clark French and I'm very pleased to welcome you to my first ever blog for Freedom Seeds.

    As any introduction goes I will start this off by explaining a little bit about what I do and generally why Freedom Seeds thought it would be a good idea for me to speak to you through the medium of their website. I was diagnosed with MS in 2010 when I was in my final year of university, to cut a long story short (and believe me I could talk for days about this) I found out that cannabis really helped me and have been campaigning to see a change in the law ever since.

  • Freedom Seeds Smokey Bear review by Clark French

    Clark French

    We’re really pleased to have Clark French on board for this special blog post. For those of you that don’t know - Clark is an MS patient and cannabis activist. He has worked with NORML UK and just this year founded United Patients Alliance - a group founded to represent the interests of medical cannabis patients in the UK. In this guest blog post Clark gives a really thorough strain review on our very own Smokey Bear.


    I was lucky enough to get my hands on some buds & concentrates of Freedom Seeds' Smokey Bear so I thought it would be more than appropriate to write a review of what I thought of it. The Smokey Bear is a Jack Herer, AK47 and a Ruderalis to gain the auto flowering trait.

    Appearance

    The buds look gorgeous, really dense and trichome covered. The trichome content it actually really impressive especially under the microscope. You wouldn't be able to tell that this was an autoflowering strain from looking at it. The greens of the bud structure are quite dark and pastel, there is some hints of purple on some of the tips. The shatter is Qwiso and a nice constituency and colour it has a slightly orange tint to it.

  • Serious Seeds Happiness - New Strain

    We often get new strain releases but rarely do we get a limited edition strain release like Serious Seeds Happiness.
    Serious Seeds have combined their Warlock father with their legendary AK-47 mother and the result is Serious Happiness! But with only 4000 packs being produced you need to be fast to get your hands on these seeds!

    This hybrid brings happiness twice. First, you will be happy about how easy she is to cultivate with a perfect hybrid structure for indoor growing. Happiness produces several side branches spaced evenly apart, with big buds and very little leaf so she is also easy to manicure.

    The aromas and tastes coming from this plant are sweet and fruity with the occasional spicy note. When smoked she can also produce a sugary aftertaste, which is where she produces happiness for the second time. The effects are a long lasting buzz that combines a nice body stone with an incredible heady high.

    The name Happiness came after this strain was smoked for the first time because that’s exactly how the grower feels, happy while she grows and seriously happy when she is finished.

    Serious seeds aren't the biggest seedbank/a> around and have never strived to be. The company states "We strive to develop new and interesting plants with good medicinal properties, which are stable and easy to grow, in order for caregivers to be able to provide high-quality medicine for medicinal cannabis patients. This means we don't work to produce something new every year for commercial reasons or to compete in the next contest. We want to put a new name out when we think we have something worth while for medicinal users, pot growers and smokers to try out."

    Saying that they have won their fair share of cannabis cups with such delights as Kali mist, White Russian and Warlock.

  • Hampshire Cannabis Club Picnic - Southsea

    It was great to be down at Castle Field in Southsea on Saturday for the Hampshire Cannabis Club awareness picnic.

    It’s been a good few years since the Portsmouth Smokey Bears were holding their picnics on Southsea Common. A few veterans from those days were in attendance and they thought it was great to see a new generation carrying on the campaign.

    Freedom Seeds chatted to lots of people from a diverse range of backgrounds and we were pleased to see so many pick up a copy of our latest catalogue from the information stall.

    You can read the local rags’ report on the event here:

    As with many of these types of events there are various estimates of the numbers who attended. It’s clear that many people that had turned up at the beginning of the day had drifted away as others arrived later in the afternoon. We estimate that the total numbers attending throughout the day was in excess of three figures.

    With no public order offences or arrests made, it’s hard to see how any reasonable person could complain about the right to hold such an event.
