Best Coast Genetics sold untested seeds to Seeds Here Now.
SHN, James Bean specifically, offered the DudeGrows show free seeds for it's members as a marketing tool.
James Bean and the Dude Grows show guys didn't test them either and have been offering them as auto CBD seeds, because Best Coast Genetics defrauded them by assuring everyone that they were legit.
They are definitively NOT autoflower seeds. In fact, based on what I've seen so far, it's unlikely that you'll find more than a couple auto flowering seeds in an entire handful of seeds. If BCG had tested even 5 seeds they'd know they were defrauding people. This whole thing leads back to a giant greedy money grab by Best Coast Genetics.
Best Coast Genetics deserve nothing less from our community than a massive boycott that drives them out of the seed making business.
I'm not a paying member of the DG community, so I don't really have any inroads for alerting them that they're giving away fraudulent seeds.
Let it be known, that I am amiable to discussing anything and everything concerning my experience with Patch Adams seeds & plants, along with my broader plant experiences and expertise, with anyone, both informally and in a broadcast setting. So, if James Bean, the DG show, or anyone else would like to remediate this fraudulent situation, all they have to do is officially announce that an error was made and change all current written & future audio media regarding Patch Adams to state that it is NOT an autoflowering variety.
I posted an almost identical statement on the FB group Probiotic Farmers Alliance, tagging James Bean into the post, months ago, with no response.
(I am aware that this is a bad way to alert someone, but my concern for the community being aware of being defrauded outweighs my concern for James Bean or DudeGrows being defrauded, as it should be!)
Now, for what I originallly came here for!
