Our 10 Most Popular Seed Banks
There are hundreds of seed banks out there, all with their own unique catalogues and variations on big name strains. But where to start? If you are a novice cannabis cultivator, then choosing a seed bank with a history of solid genetics can be quite a daunting task. How do you make a decision from the multitudes available? Well, normally it comes down to personal experience and word of mouth. As you become more confident in your abilities as a grower, you will likely find yourself branching out and trying new strains.
To help you make a decision, whether you are new to growing, or simply looking for something different, we have put together a list of the ten most popular seed banks on Zamnesia (in no particular order) – based on what our customers have been buying. So take a look!
Humboldt seeds has a long history of pedigree and prestige when it comes to growing and breeding cannabis. Hailing from Humboldt, USA, where the sparsely populated mountainous regions and favourable climate offer a discreet and tranquil environment for cultivation, the Humboldt team have created some world renowned strains. Their catalogue includes big names like ChemDawg and Blue dream, as well as some lesser known, but no by no means lower quality strains. They are an excellent choice for anyone looking for some top-shelf stuff.

Sensi Seeds have been producing some of the world’s best strains ever since. Popular strains from Sensi Seeds include Jack Flash, Skunk 1, and Big Bud.
