My name is Jaime, founder and breeder of Resin Seeds. Resin Seeds is a Spanish cannabis seedbank, founded in 2008, with the help of my good friend Juanma. We are the winners of 2 Hightimes Amsterdam Cannabis Cup Awards, in 2008 and 2013.
I have been active in the Spanish grow scene since 1998, when I opened one of the first grow shops in Spain, in Barcelona. Since then I have been involved in the Spanish cannabis movement, participating in various grow shop projects and as a speaker at grow seminars and medical conferences, as well as founding my very own social cannabis club in 2010.
I have always been eager to learn more and expand my knowledge about the beloved plant. There are many well known breeders of the Cannabis world that are my friends and have greatly helped me to develop my strains with all kind of contributions.
One of the main reasons that pushed me to start up my own seedbank was the contact with medicinal cannabis users; contacts I had established especially via the growshops I had been managing. Patients told me the different effects they felt when using different strains and provided me with their valuable feedback. I am truly interested in getting in touch with people that use Cannabis as a medicine – please send me your comments about our strains!
Back in 2008, Cannatonic was unveiled to the public, and accomplished a feat not easily imaginable at the time: winning a High Times Amsterdam Cannabis Cup in a Sativa category with a CBD-rich plant. We can only suppose that the judges were so overwhelmingly impressed with the initial sensation of a balanced THC/CBD high that they had no choice but to include our Cannatonic seeds amongst the winners.
Since then, we have continued developing our CBD line to include Hammershark and Dieseltonic, which again won an award in Amsterdam’s High Times Cannabis Cup, this time in 2013. And now we are proud to announce our newest addition into our CBD lineup, Kushtonic, whose lineage will soon be unveiled. Many of our other strains, the high THC strains, are also well-known world over, and recipients of extensive awards, from Chile to USA to the Balearic Islands. Our genetics are now being grown in places as atypical to the common grower as Gambia, Slovenia, Cambodia, New Zealand and more. We can only suppose that the global debate over cannabis is reaching a tipping point, where communities are finally beginning to ignore years of backlash and brainwashing over the cannabis plant, and finally embracing the true merits it can offer.
How does a sacred plant become a medicinal plant to then be an illegal plant and then back to a sacred and medicinal plant? This is a paradox of the highest proportions. But here we are, in these modern times with cannabis all around us, growing wildly and controlled, subject to inspection and eradication, accepted and denounced. To this very day, thousands of families around the world continue surviving on the ability of cannabis to grow and thrive in whatever harsh or lush environment surrounds it, to then harvest and process the fruit of their labors to endure. Millions more rely upon it regularly to help them get by the struggles of daily living.
Rather sadly and heartening at the same time, there are many millions more who regularly legally or illegally use cannabis or its resin to treat themselves of a medical condition. Unfortunately, the laws of the 20th century did not bode well for this special and majestic plant. But somehow, it found a way to fight back, to stay alive, to leave a footprint, to figuratively plant a seed with roots so strong it could never die. Now this plant is set into our collective mindset, as a species, we are finally, although often slowly, beginning to embrace the mystical healing properties of the plant. No more do we have to shun or shy away from it, nor do we have to promote or enforce a brainwashing that has gone on for too long. We are free to accept the marvelous benefits this botanical wonder has to offer.
