B.c. grown seeds
For thousands of years marijuana was not only legal, but an important crop among cultures throughout history, and held commercial, medicinal, and spiritual value.

Cannabis: A Journey Through the Ages

In 1997, a hemp rope dating back to 26,900 BC was found in Czechoslovakia, making it the oldest known object to be associated with cannabis. Since that time, hemp has played an important role in humanity’s development.

For thousands of years marijuana was not only legal, but an important crop among cultures throughout history, and held commercial, medicinal, and spiritual value.

The cultivation of cannabis, commonly known as marijuana, can be traced back at least 12,000 years, which places the plant among humanity’s oldest cultivated crops.

Cannabis plants are believed to have evolved in Central Asia in the regions of Mongolia and southern Siberia.

The earliest cultural evidence of Cannabis comes from the oldest known Neolithic culture in China, the Yangshao, who appeared along the Yellow River valley. From 5,000 to 3,000 B.C the economy of the Yangshao was cannabis-driven.

Archaeological evidence shows they wore hemp clothing, wove hemp, and produced hemp pottery.

The first recorded use of marijuana as a medicinal drug occurred in 2737 BC by the Chinese emperor Shen Nung.

He documented the drug’s effectiveness in treating the pains of rheumatism and gout. Both hemp and psychoactive marijuana were widely used in ancient China.

The ancient Chinese used virtually every part of the Cannabis plant: the root for medicine; the stem for textiles, rope and paper making; the leaves and flowers for intoxication and medicine; and the seeds for food and oil.

Cannabis seeds were also one of the grains of early China and ancient tombs of China had sacrificial vessels filled with hemp for the afterlife.

The first medical journals in China were made of hemp and eventually it came to replace papyrus as the source of paper that eventually fostered the spread of written knowledge.

It was used to record the deeds of history, eventually replacing clay tablets and expensive silk to be read by everyone.

From China, coastal farmers took marijuana to Korea around 2000 B.C. or earlier.

It reached India between 2000 B.C. and 1000 B.C., when the region was invaded by the Aryans, a group that spoke an archaic Indo-European language.

They called cannabis “bhang.” In India, the Aryan religion grew through oral tradition and was recorded in the four vedas , or books of knowledge compiled between 1400 and 1000 B.C. They worshipped the spirits of plants and animals, and marijuana played an active role in their rituals. Like the Chinese, the people of India have a long history of using hemp in their clothing and medicine.

Cannabis use in ancient Egypt has been recorded as far back as 2,000 B.C., found on scrolls depicting medicinal plants. It was first documented in Kemet (ancient Egypt) to treat sore eyes and cataracts. According to Diodorus Siculus, a Sicilian Greek historian, Egyptian women used cannabis as a medication to relieve sorrow and bad humor. In 1213 B.C. Cannabis pollen was found on the mummy of Rameses II. Additional research has linked cannabis pollen to all known royal mummies.

Marijuana was introduced to the Middle East between 2000 B.C. and 1400 B.C., where it was probably used by the Scythians, a nomadic Indo-European group. The medical use of the plant in the middle east is recorded in 700 B.C. in the Venidad, an ancient Persian religious text purportedly written by Zoroaster.

The Greeks make mention of Cannabis as a remedy for earache, edema, and inflammation in 200 B.C.

From there marijuana went to Britain during the 5th century Anglo-Saxon invasions.

If u wanne keep following the yourney trough out time there are loads of documenatation about these beautys ,,so the next question >? How to recognize your genetics.

Indica vs Sativa: Whats the difference between these cannabis types?

You’ve probably heard that cannabis is devided into 3 main catagories:

Indica, Sativa and Hybrids, but what is the difference between these types?

and how can we distinguish one from another?

The words “indica” and “sativa” were introduced in the 18 th century to describe different species of cannabis: Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica.

The term sativa, named by Carl Linneaus, described hemp plants found in Europe and western Eurasia, where it was cultivated for its fiber and seeds.

Cannabis indica, named by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, describes the psychoactive varieties discovered in India, where it was harvested for its seeds, fiber, and hashish production.

Although the cannabis varieties we consume largely stem from Cannabis indica, both terms are used–even if erroneously–to organize the thousands of strains circulating the market today.

Here’s how terms have shifted since their earliest botanical definitions:

  • Today, “sativa” refers to tall, narrow-leaf varieties of cannabis, thought to induce energizing effects. However, these narrow-leaf drug (NLD) varieties were originally Cannabis indica ssp. indica.
  • “Indica” has come to describe stout, broad-leaf plants, thought to deliver sedating effects. These broad-leaf drug (BLD) varieties are technically Cannabis indica ssp. afghanica.
  • What we call “hemp” refers to the industrial, non-intoxicating varieties harvested primarily for fiber, seeds, and CBD. However, this was originally named Cannabis sativa.

Confused? Understandably so. As you can see, with the mass commercialization of cannabis, the taxonomical distinctions between cannabis species and subspecies got turned on its head and calcified. It seems the contemporary use of indica and sativa descriptors is here to stay, but as an informed consumer, it’s important to understand the practical value of these categories—which brings us to the research.

Sativa

Sativa is populair bij rokers voor zijn energieke, stimulerende high. Veel mensen melden een ‘head high’ gevoel dat goed geschikt is om met vrienden te hangen, buiten te bezoeken en creatieve projecten te werken, zoals muziek of kunstwerk. Sativa werd ontdekt in 1753 door bioloog Carl Linnaeus die de stam als een unieke soort identificeerde. Vandaag verdient Sativa in warme klimaten rond de evenaar in landen zoals Colombia, Mexico en Zuidoost-Azië. De makkelijkste manier om de Sativa te herkennen is dat het simpelweg lijkt op een lange dunne plant. De bladeren zijn slank, en de plant zelf kan zo hoog zijn als 250 cm lang. Als u op zoek bent naar hogere CBD-inhoud ten opzichte van THC, dan is Sativa voor u!

Indica

In 1785, Jean-Bapiste Lamrack published a description of a second species of Cannabis indica.

Lamrack based his description on the newly named species on plant specimins collected in india.

Cannabis Indica are short and stout in composure they are believed to have originated in the Middle East(pakistan & afghanistan) and thrive in cooler environments. Indica strains are typically darker green than sativa and have shorter,fatter leaves.

The all known Indica is well known for its Classic Couch lock.

When your looking to relax Indica is the way to go, the effects produced by indicas are very relaxing and narcotic-like typically providing a full-body,or “Couch lock”

Indicas are perfect for those days spent curled up on the sofa watching tv or reading a book however,, most people seek indicas after a long day at work to relieve stress, provide full-body pain relief, and help them fall asleep at night.

Indica strains are ideal for;

Chronic pains, muscle spasms, anxiety ,nausea , appetite stimulation, and sleep deprivation

Hybrids

Hybrids are a product of love for Cannabis by growers all over the world, by making a mixture of different genetic lines created by curious Cannabis lovers in the search of a superior product.

By now anno 2018 its hard to talk about specific traits that would identify hybrids, there are thousands what maybe milions of strains out there being bred by a huge public al having there difference demands in the medicinal herbs they are growing that there arent much point to hold on trying to identify one of these babys.

Every hybrid will have a different growth pattern, leave structure, terp profile, cannabinoid level so on,the thing that does visually seperate them from both Indica and Sativa is the Leave structure; , were Sativa a thin and Indica have fat leaves a Hybrid will be in between, once u had a couple hybrids you will know u had one.

In Cannabis culture for us its about trying new things but yet trying to stay true to the origins of the Species , when we produce our hybrids we work with pure lines we try to keep them as “clean as possible” and we do it organic along the way :0

About BC Seeds

BC Seeds is one of the oldest seed banks in North America.

Americans and Canadians have held bud from British Columbia in high regard for decades.

BC Seeds officially started in the 1990s, but the company’s history actually starts way before then.

It’s a story that mirrors the growing acceptance of cannabis as a whole.

The company’s mysterious founder, “Mr. BC Seeds,” became a cannabis breeder in 1974.

In 1998, he opened the first marijuana seed bank in Canada.

It was also one of the first seed banks in North America.

This was before seed banks were big on the internet, so BC Seeds spread mostly through word of mouth.

The company’s claim to fame is the ridiculously high THC content of its strains.

BC Seeds boasts that it has some of the highest-THC cannabis plants in the world.

Some of BC Seeds’ best-known strains include Forever Buds, Oracle Bud, Multiverse God Bud, Sky Heaven Bud, Walking Dead Bud, Space Buzz Continuum, and Euphoria Unlimited Bud.

In addition, BC Seeds developed Elephant Bud, a highly-respected strain.

Seed Quality – 4.5/5

BC Seeds is one of the best seed banks in North America.

It’s been around for ages.

It’s the same caliber as the highest-grade seeds from Amsterdam.

The company touts its cannabis as some of the best in the world, and there are plenty of customer reviews to back that claim up.

Many of the company’s seed packs boast a 100 percent germination rate.

BC Seeds released one of its most powerful strains in 2008.

Its Elephant Bud received a “World’s Strongest Strain” award in 2008.

However, you definitely pay for what you get. One of BC Seeds’ seed packs, their “Alaskan Delight” retails for $600 on their website.

And that’s when they’re on sale – usually a pack costs $800.

The strain is Essentially their version of a stable Afghani strain.

The website says that Mr. BC Seeds nearly died in an avalanche getting the seeds from a remote part of Asia.

That’s why the seeds are so expensive.

Strain Selection – 4/5

BC Seeds offers more than 300 different strains of cannabis.

You can use their site search tool to filter what seeds you want by type.

For example, you can search by qualities, like high-altitude, low-light, and medical marijuana.

In addition, BC seeds offers coca plant seeds, poppy seeds, and salvia divinorum seeds on its website.

In fact, the company’s website says that its salvia is one of the most powerful strains on Earth.

They even sell spores for mushrooms.

It’s definitely cool to see a seed company offer seeds from more than one kind of plant.

BC Seeds’ coca plant is from the “Drug Lord” strain.

It’s a hearty and robust strain of coca that will grow in any area.

In addition, it will continue to grow no matter what sorts of herbicides are sprayed on it.

BC Customer Service – 2/5

One of BC Seeds’ weakest points is its customer service.

While the company says that it will return customer service emails within a few hours, I’ve seen it take days to get a response.

In fact, sometimes BC Seeds customer service doesn’t even respond at all.

Customer service is one of the worst aspects of the company.

While their response to customer service may not be great, they do try to make up for it.

BC Seeds offers freebie seeds with many purchases.

Freebie seeds come from one of 30 strains.

In addition, freebie seeds are never more than three months old.

The fresher your seeds, the better their chances of germinating.

As a result, BC Seeds’ freebie system is one of the only good aspects of their customer service.

BC Customer Reviews – 3.5/5

Customer reviews are generally very positive of BC Seeds.

Customers hold BC Seeds in very high regard.

Some customers cite BC Seeds’ potency as one of the main factors that keeps them coming back.

You just can’t find that level of quality everywhere.

In addition, customers say that BC Seeds have a high germination rate.

Many packs will see 100 percent of their seeds germinate.

This is a great number.

Many seed banks can’t get success rates this high from their packs.

Ultimately, a seed bank’s germination percentage is one of its biggest strengths.

There are a few negative reviews about BC Seeds though.

These generally focus on the company’s poor customer service and high prices.

BC Payment Methods – 5/5

BC Seeds accepts payments via American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discovery Card, bank transfer, cash, check, Western Union and Wire Transfer.

In other words, they’ll accept basically any kind of traditional payment method.

In addition, BC Seeds allows customers to pay via BitCoin.

I always appreciate when a seed bank lets me pay using Crypto.

It’s completely anonymous, so it helps put my mind at ease.

BC Shipping – 4/5

BC Seeds ships worldwide.

That’s right – if you’re one of our American or Canadian readers, this is a seed bank that you can actually buy from!

When you order BC Seeds, you need to register on their site with your email address.

However, you can’t use AOL, Verizon.net, Charter.net, or Comcast.net email addresses.

If you do, your ISP will block any emails from BC Seeds.

BC Discretion 4/5

BC Seeds offers an extremely high degree of stealth with its shipments.

The company has mastered the art of stealth shipping.

They’ve developed their own techniques for discreet shipping since 1994.

In fact, BC seeds offers a “100% Uber Stealth Delivery 7 Safety Guarantee.”

BC Discounts / Promotions 3/5

I couldn’t find any discounts or coupon codes for BC Seeds.

However, the company does send randomized freebie seeds with many of its orders.

Freebie seeds come from a list of more than 30 strains.

In addition, freebie seeds are never more than three months old.

BC FAQ

Below are some commonly-asked questions about BC Seed Bank:

Where is BC Seeds Located?

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Are there any BC Seeds discount codes?

I couldn’t find any discount codes for BC Seeds. It’s a bummer, because their seeds are so expensive.

However, they do frequently send random freebie seeds to customers.

Is BC Seeds Legit?

With a storied history and a respected brand, BC Seeds is one of the most legit seed banks in North America.

However, you need to take the company’s poor customer service into account.

BC Seeds ships worldwide. You don’t need to worry about getting shut out of the party.

Final Thoughts

No one can deny that BC Seeds has some great genetics.

Their plants have insanely high THC content.

In addition, they’ll throw down massive weight, and they like to finish earlier than many other strains.

BC Seeds packs regularly have a 100% germination rate.

This is great – it really sets them apart from many other seed banks.

They’ll also ship to the US and Canada, which is always a bonus for high-grade cannabis seeds.

I’ve seen too many high-end seed banks that won’t ship to North America.

In addition, it’s great that they allow customers to buy using Crypto.

I love using BitCoin to buy seeds online. It adds another layer of stealth and security, and helps put my mind at ease.

The only real issues I have with BC Seeds is their price and customer service.

When you’re paying $800 for a pack of seeds, you want to make sure that everything’s going to go right.

If you have any questions, you need someone who’s available to answer them.

If BC Seeds had better customer service, I would definitely rate them higher.

In this BC Seed Bank review, I’d rank BC Seeds with the following:
