Canna Cribs Podcast: Episode #2.
Learn about Humboldt Seed Company with Nathaniel Pennington in Episode 2 of the Canna Cribs Podcast.
We document history with the pioneers of the global cannabis industry. In this interview, you will learn about how Nat ended up in Humboldt and how he started Humboldt Seed Company.
Humboldt Seed Company is on a mission to provide high-quality cannabis seeds to customers who want to grow their own cannabis plants. Founded in 2001 by biologists in Humboldt County, CA, we began breeding for patients under Prop 215. We have since evolved for the recreational market. Our Clean Green Certified seeds are available in several states at select retailers. We breed our seeds on our farm in Northeastern Humboldt County, CA. In 2018 we hosted the World’s Largest Phenotype Hunt through a collaborative genetic clone pursuit, teaming with local farm friends we choose the top percentile clones. The selections are now available in California and Oregon nurseries. The whole point is that we only keep the very best of the best.
