the seed bank of holland

On June 24, 1990, Nevil Schoenmakers, who legally operated the Seed Bank in Holland, was arrested by the Australian authorities at the behest of the US government while visiting family in Perth. A 44-count indictment was lodged in New Orleans, charging him with the sale of marijuana seeds to undercover agents and indoor growers in the New Orleans area in 1989. After years of legal battles, the charges were ultimately dropped. He could not be extradited from Holland as his activities were legal under Dutch law. In 1991 The Seed Bank was bought by Ben Dronkers, the founder of Sensi Seeds.

Clones usually finish 2-3 weeks quicker than the seed mother plant and therefore will give the grower a possibility to finish something that normally needs the tropics to grow in. The full flavor is sativa all the way so for you Indica lovers this plant will not be for you! It was made by combining a pure Haze to a Northern Lights #5 x Haze, thus creating probably one of the most influential plants of our time, certainly for flavor, aroma and effect. It is a must if you are within 10′ of the equator for outdoor cultivation, but indoor would be recommended in other regions.

Nevil’s Haze is a mostly Sativa strain with a flowering time of about 16 weeks. For Outdoors, Greenhouse or Indoor.

About Nevil (The King Of Cannabis)

Indoors it depends on the grower but expect 400 g/m2, outdoors and green house this can increase enormously.

A tribute to the father of all modern seed companies, Nevil Schoenmakers. There is something very special about this 3/4 Sativa that those in the know will recognize once they smell the end product. It can be difficult to know what to base your selective reasoning on, but the plants that go longer than 16 weeks indoor will really not be of value in the end to indoor cultivators. A tip for those who do find a long flowering plant they wish to keep.

In 1988 Nevil introduced the first Haze to Holland. The ‘Haze x Northern Lights F1-Hybrid’ had it’s origins in the United States, where the ‘Haze Brothers’ had been growing the Sativa plants since the 70’s. The price in ‘The Seed Bank’ catalogue was then $100 for 10 seeds. It nearly became extinct beginning of the 80’s because growers were looking for easier varieties. The Haze Brothers eventually retired, but first made a trip to the Netherlands, where they met with Nevil, a breeder who’s name has often been associated with the Haze and its hybrids even before he was ‘The King Of Cannabis’. Nevil acquired Haze seeds from them, preserving the strain and using it for many crosses. Haze requires profeasional care and a lot of patience because of its long season.. but it has been very good for hybridisation. Today, the Haze variety is found in many crosses that are available, and is a favorite to many ‘Sativa Connoisseurs’

It was during Nevil’s 83/84 collection trips to the US that he aquired, from Sandy Wienstein (who passed in 1987) the only G-13 cuttings to ever leave Sandy’s garden. Nevil returned to Holland and made three crosses with G-13 at the Seed Bank. G-13 x Haze (in catolog only 1 yr, discontinued. Currently Barney’s Seeds), G-13 x Hash Plant (renamed: Mr. Nice. Currently Sensi Seeds), G-13 x Skunk#1 (Last, and according to Nevil, the best of the G crosses. Currently Mr. Nice Seeds).

Among the Dutch seed banks, Sensi Seeds is one of the most recognized not only in Europe, but worldwide.

Soma has a philosophy of life focused on what is natural and this is reflected in the seeds they offer to the public. The sensory experience they offer is so delicious you have to try them.

Green House Seeds

For example, in White Label by Sensi Seeds you can get feminized cannabis strains such as White Label Skunk #1 (the original, sold as surplus), White Label Super Skunk (same as the previous one), White Label White Skunk and many other quality seeds.

What better founder of a seed bank in Holland than a Rastafarian. That’s Soma, the founder of Soma Seeds, who since the 70s learned how to grow his own marijuana and, today, his seed bank is recognized among the best in Holland.

They have proposed to isolate and stabilize the genetics of quality seeds that come from the United States and other parts of the world.
