Top 5 American Seed Banks
The order in which the top 5 American seed banks will appear is not intended to be a ranking. The fact that one is described before the rest is merely situational, so it must be understood like there is no one favourite in the selection made today. Without further ado, we begin by reviewing the characteristics of one of the most famous seedbanks with American origins.
The first of the American seed banks to stand out on this list is Humboldt Seeds, the reason behind its excellent genetics is in the North of California. Humboldt’s growers began to develop strains during the 1960s, in one of the most important meccas for Cannabis in the world: the county of Humboldt.
The founders of this American seed bank were settling in this area of the American west coast with the aim of escaping the repression and the bad vibes of the metropolitan areas of the country. Humboldt County was the perfect orchard to sit on and lead an environmentally friendly lifestyle in which to grow Cannabis safely and sustainably.
This movement was called Back to the land, it was closely related to the rising of the hippie movement and the American counter-culture of the 1960s. The climate was great for cultivation and gradually more and more groups of growers began to appear and developed their own strains, all of it in an ecological way and respecting cannabis natural characteristics.
Humboldt Seeds was born from precisely this, from a group of cannabis enthusiasts who started out doing what they loved best and ended up making it their profession. At Humboldt Seeds they are experts in the application of innovative and eco-friendly growing techniques, and their packaging is designed to protect and keep the seeds with all its original properties unchanged.
We highlight some of the best strains within the Humboldt Seeds’ seed catalogue. First, the Blue Dream, the first strain of this seed bank, it has all the qualities of a premium US variety: large harvests, penetrating and complex aroma, powerful effects and fast flowering.
Another worth mention strain is their Bubba Kush, a compact plant with Indica genes that will produce impressive results in virtually all climatic conditions. It is capable to produce an excellent 24% of THC, as well as organoleptic properties that are highly appreciated by the cannabis lovers.
Another of the best American seed banks is Fast Buds. This seed bank was established in 2010 with a clear objective: to meet the demands of a public of Cannabis enthusiasts who required high quality autoflowering seeds. That means fast flowering plants with outcomes similar to the ones delivered by photo-dependent strains.
Despite the fact that this seed bank was created by Americans, the founders decided over time to settle in Spain, specifically in the Mediterranean area, because it allows them to grow in almost perfect conditions. In this way, the members of Fast Buds team are working with American genetics in Spain.
The way of work of this American seed bank is simple: they begin with the selection of regular specimens in the United States, to be more specific in the California area. Subsequently, the specimen is stabilized and breeded until the best possible version of itself is finally achieved, to finally cross it with a small portion of ruderalis genes to give it the autoflowering ability.
The excellent characteristics of the Fast Buds autoflowering strains has nothing to envy to the photoperiodic strains. In fact, the master work of this seed bank has won them several awards in cannabis competitions around the world.

As with the Fast Buds seed bank, DNA Genetics began its journey in the United States, although over time they decided to move to Amsterdam, where there it was a better environment to the development of a marijuana seed bank. However, without giving up their 100% American DNA, which is reflected in all the seed collections they introduce to the market.
The DNA Genetics’ strains are versatile and have undergone a very thorough selection and stabilization processes. Before introducing a new variety to the market, this seed bank opts for long research before.

We highlight also The OG 18, a DNA Genetics variety that belongs directly to their private reserve. This strain was created after a prodigious OG Kush backcrossing, where a specimen with outstanding characteristics showed up. The high THC level and the acidic aroma with Kush notes complete the profile of this remarkable variety.
