Who We Are
We are a nonprofit collective comprised of dedicated breeders and preservationists, with a common goal: connecting growers and breeders with the most authentic and reliable sources of indigenous cultivars from around the world. “Legalization” (aka prohibition 2.0 as we like to call it) has begun to put even more outside pressure than ever before on these already highly endangered cultivars, with the influx of foreign hemp and western hybrid varieties being imported to these regions by online seed banks. With more and more countries legalizing medical and “recreational” use, and creating a market for large mega corporations to move in and set up shop with their imported varieties from the EU and North America, indigenous cultivars from these regions are under very real threat of extinction. We see it as the responsibility of all serious cannabis enthusiasts and conservationists to do their part to preserve the genetic heritage of these crucial pieces to the cannabis genomic puzzle.

About Our Breeding Program
Bred and acclimatized in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and North Coast region, these lines have all been selected over generations for hardiness, disease resistance, and strong medicinal effects. Our mission is to preserve and acclimatize rare and endangered heirloom and landrace cannabis varietals from around the world. We focus on outdoor open-pollinated preservation/acclimatization of pure lines, as well as the production of hearty, vigorous, disease-resistant, bio-regional hybrids based on these precious cultivars. All of our preservation work is conducted in the Willamette Valley and along the North Coast of Oregon, where the climate lends strong selection pressure towards moisture and mold resistance. This allows only the strongest specimens to make it through our rigorous selection process. We believe that you should be able to grow cannabis outdoors wherever you live, but all of our varieties have been thoroughly tested indoors and out and will thrive in either environment. All of our seeds are produced using old world regenerative farming practices, utilizing only what is immediately available on our farms and surrounding beaches and forests.. without the use of any chemicals or pesticides. Simply put, we strive to recreate the mystery and the magic of the cannabis world of the 60’s and 70’s, and to keep alive the cannabis cultures from around the world that inspired a generation.
