It’s been 15 years since we started our grand adventure!
2005 was our year; we made our mark on the marijuana seed sector, which, at that time, was dominated by the large Dutch seed banks.
In our first year as a feminised marijuana seed bank, we launched three incredible strains: the magnificent hybrid Black Jack® (SWS01), S.A.D. Sweet Afgani Delicious S1® (SWS02) with an indica structure and the great sativa seeds of Sweet Tai® (SWS03).
It took us several years of studying and learning about this marvellous plant in order to obtain these strains. As growers and breeders, we wanted to surprise marijuana cultivators with our cannabis seeds. There is something very important that you need to know – here at Sweet Seeds® we create new genetics; we don’t simply just repackage genetics.
Accordingly, over the next few years we continued applying our passion, dedication and efforts to developing new high-quality, high-yielding genetics that are packed with resin and particularly aromatic, with feminisation of approx. 99.9% and germination rates of over 95%. And so through these quality parameters, which are also our commitment to you, she came to us, one of our most famous strains, our beloved Cream Caramel® (SWS04). Even today it is still one of the genetics in our seed bank that wins the most awards. Many others have tried imitating it, but there is only one Cream Caramel® and it’s only available from Sweet Seeds®.
2013 was packed with red novelties and genetic innovations. Our group “The Red Family” first rocked the market with three autoflowering red strains which would become the forerunners of one of the most flaming hot families in our catalogue. But 2013 had even more innovation on offer with the arrival of the first F1 Fast Version® strains. Wait a minute, you still don’t know about the F1 Fast Version® strains? Don’t worry, we shall give you a quick and simple explanation: they are feminised, photoperiod-dependent strains with ultrafast flowering, thus reducing the flowering period by up to 2 weeks compared to the original strains.
These F1 Fast Version® strains represented an international premier; Sweet Seeds® was the first seed bank in the world to sell this type of genetics. Remember, their most notable feature is that they can reduce flowering time by several weeks.
Their popularity with so many marijuana growers was a sign of their approval and assured us that we were producing excellent seeds! As you can imagine, your response to our strains is our greatest stimulus to keep on improving.
Over the last few years, given the boom in CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with multiple therapeutic applications (they are often called “medicinal” or “therapeutic” strains), we decided to develop the first “pure CBD” strain, our very own Sweet Pure CBD® with low THC levels. This strain was specially created to meet the needs of therapeutic cannabis users who prefer not to feel the psychotropic effects of THC, while our catalogue also includes strains with our distinctive flavours and aromas but adapted to these growers’ specific requirements. Medicinal cannabis growers, we hope you like our CBD line, available in both autoflowering and photoperiod-dependent seeds.
Those 15 years have flown by! And as you might have expected, we’ve got eight new additions to present in 2020 and we are sure you are going to be impressed.
Red Pure Auto CBD® (SWS81) is an autoflowering strain with high CBD levels and low THC levels; this beauty will captivate you with its striking red flowers.
Does the expression “Super Strong” sound familiar? This year we will also be releasing four high THC strains with genetic lines that include some of the most famous American varieties. Gorilla Girl XL Auto® (SWS82), Gorilla Girl F1 Fast Version® (SWS86), Red Hot Cookies® (SWS83) and Tropicanna Poison F1 Fast Version® (SWS85) – make a note of these names because you are going to love all of them.
We want to celebrate our 15th anniversary with a bang, so we will be releasing extra-large versions of two of our tastiest strains. Presenting our famous honey pot CRYSTAL CANDY XL AUTO® (SWS87) and the mighty sativa SWEET AMNESIA HAZE XL AUTO® (SWS57).
Finally, it just remains to say that we wish you a year full of sweet, powerful and tasty weed!
All the best from the Sweet Seeds team.

Photoperiod-dependent: Strains that flower according to the number of hours of light that they receive.
Autoflowering (aka Automatic): Strains that start flowering when they reach to a specific lifetime, regardless of the hours of light that they receive.
F1 Hybrid: The first resulting generation of the hybridization between two different and stable varieties.
S1: First resulting generation from the Self-pollination of an individual.
S2: Second generation of self-pollination.
F1 Fast Version®: Photoperiod-dependent strains with fast flowering. F1 hybrids between photoperiod-dependent and autoflowering strains.
3G, 4G, 5G… (in Autoflowering): Identifies the generational steps and not the generations themselves. We established a new generational step every time the presence of Cannabis Ruderalis genetic in the autoflowering strains is reduced. It is usually due to the cross with photoperiod-dependent genetics.
