Cannabis Genetics Preservation
Hey all, I’ve decided to do something that could help the future of Cannabis as well as helping myself and others in the process…
I seriously advise that everyone including sponsors, consider doing this as well.
It was insainly cheap (less then $20.00 CAD)
The purpose of this endeavor is to preserve Cannabis Genitics in the face of a real Government Genetics lockdown, to preserve strains that may die out or get diluted so much the original Genetics are lost in some manner ect.
I will keep the Saved Genetics until my death, at which point I will pass along to my kids for future generations…
So spread the word, invite people to come read this page and maybe they too can join me in this effort to preserve what YOU consider Valuable Genetics …
I’m planning to allow my seed collection to only reach 100 strains, Yip collecting seeds is a real problem sometimes, I’m already halfway to this goal…
I’m not talking only store bought, breeder bought, I’m saying ANY strain that’s been created via any means that I myself consider Valuable Genetics…
I know some of you guys/gals may have already hit this target, especially when breeding we end up with thousands of seeds and really, can we actually grow even just 1000 seeds in ourselves in a lifetime??
So I purchased these little Cryogenic vials that can be used to freeze and preserve seeds for many years to come… Detials:
Laboratory grade Cryopreservation Tubes that are suitable for ultra low freezing tempatures…
1.8 ml Lab Cryogenic vials
Box size 127x 127x 51mm
Screw on caps with silicone Orings inside.
Airtight and liquid tight.
These are suitable for seeds and/or Pollen.
What I’m going to do exactly?
Preserveing 25 seprate strains in 4 categories,
Each category will be compiled of
10x THC Indica Dominant
10x THC Stativa Dominant
3x CBD Indica Dominant
2x CBD Sativa Dominant
25x Landrace Genetics
25X Regular Photoperiod
25x Feminized Photoperiod
25x Automatic Photoperiod
For a tottal of 100 strains, 80 strains being THC dominant and 20 being CBD dominant…
So basically ANY strains that I personally feel the need to be preserved based on my own criteria I will obtain if necessary, grow them out and make a load of seeds of that specific strain… THEN, I will choose the best looking seeds and fill up a single 1.8ml tube and shrink wrap it and store in the freezer…
I will have a master list made up per vile, each vile will be numbered to a corresponding Strain Name with detials on that strain (kinda like a guide booklet) the sheets will also be stored with the seeds, each sheet with get laminated (just incase)…
All the remaining seeds will be used for personal use grows and for trading/swapping/gifting ect with friends and people who are in need… which helps myself and others right away, while we are here to enjoy them all !
Thoughts and suggestions?
