Blackskull seeds was formed by a pair of growers from the UK who moved to Spain in the early 2000’s to perfect their growing and breeding techniques. Hailing from the southwest of the UK we had been growing our own weed for personal use since our teenage years but as time moved on we felt more and more hampered by the UK’s draconian drug laws. We had brought back various classic cannabis strains from Holland after weekend smoking trips to the ‘Dam but we really wanted the time and space in our grow rooms to select the best individuals and work on our own strains. In the UK this felt too risky so we took the decision to relocate to sunny Catalonia where we now operate our breeding program from a rural Finca (farmhouse) where we have loads of space, unlimited summer sunshine and are out of the way of prying eyes!
The main philosophy behind blackskull seeds was to produce fantastic marijuana strains with much quicker flowering times. Having grown outdoors in the UK we knew how important fast finishing strains could be and with the increased price of electricity worldwide we knew that this was also a factor for indoor growers. We have worked tirelessly over the last 10 years to create 7 feminised photo period strains and 6 Auto-flowering strains which in our opinion produce some of the best weed in the world. All of our photoperiod strains can finish in as little as 7-8 weeks without compromising on yield, taste or potency and our auto flowering strains are superior to anything else we have seen.
Thanks to the space and sunshine afforded to us in Spain we have managed to bring down our production costs over the years so that we are now able to offer our feminised seeds at much lower prices than most seed companies. We don’t spend a fortune on advertising in glossy magazines or having big booths at trade fairs but rely on word of mouth and peer reviews to promote the brand. This means that all of our strains are available for £3.50 per seed which is half the price most other seedbanks will be charging you for similar genetics.
And the name Blackskull? Well that comes from a particularly dirty, smoke stained, skull shaped glass bong we shared for many a year back in the UK. Unfortunately the infamous blackskull bong died a sad death when knocked off a coffee table many moons ago but the legend lives on!
