    @Canna_bill, yup, one of those ol' sayings that is very applicable here: only break one law at a time.

    From what i've heard in recent years, many of the bigger European seedbanks had subcontracted seed production to spain... and that certain outfits (presumably like dinafem) made most of the seeds... or they themselves had an extended circle of growers that produced different batches of seed for them.
    Sounds like a lot of that wider circle got busted along with the central organisation.


    Does anyone know if Positronics were another that got affected? I know their 'new incarnation' was based in Spain...


    Interesting change too, not sure why/what is behind it.. but for years, growers have mostly been left alone in Spain.. maybe that period is over?

    Big outfit, small outfit, it doesn’t matter...the fact that these folks were busted for propagating a plant that we all love, cherish and revere us absurd. Like them or not, they were putting their lively hood on the line, and taking a personal risk, so that we all could grow our own herb. I may have disagreements with what they charged, how they went about it, who they consorted with, but at the end of the day they were doing the same thing that we do....cultivate cannabis because of the belief that it is a harmless plant that benefits more people than it could ever conceivably hurt.
    Gypsy is right, they don’t deserve the arrest and treatment as criminals that they have been served with....yes, maybe they were doing unfavorable things with their gains from it, but who are we to decide and pass judgement on their intentions. They were busted for doing what we all do....cultivate a plant that we all love. A plant that has never killed anyone in the history of time, and that has saved more lives than will ever be known.
    I don’t “like” the commercial seed business...I have been in the “industry” for almost 20 years...my personal feelings for how and why someone is doing it is beside the point, I don’t think that catching a case for cannabis cultivation is acceptable.

    Alot of companies have been outsourcing there seed from private growers like these in spain....an i expect that more companies than we know have been getting their seeds from this network, with some putting different names on there strains....it isnt just the big company fronts that have been busted but some small private growers who have been making the seed a I bet for more people than you know....plus the loss of alot of mother plants..that are responsible for alot of seed....gone

    Is there any word on whether this was done by the Spanish authorities on their own initiative or under pressure from the EU or US?

    Man whoever disses Dinafem must have had some bad luck. You find keepers in 3 packs. With fem seed they are easily in the top 3. I dont even know what to recommend, if I had the $ I would've bought the entire catalogue the best thing you can do is read the descriptions because they often are quite accurate compared to other seed suppliers.

    Are there any suggestions for strains that people should try and get before the stock dries up? Most reviews seem mixed but I'm sure they must have some gems in their lineups

    when dinafem first came out maybe 15 years ago - they seemed very professional in all they did - producing very glossy catalogues - and marketing/advertizing throughout the industry was very thorough - looks like they concentrated on feminized seeds -

    - I don't like to see the cops take down any canna-business - what radioman says above - ''it is just cannabis'' - and now the cannabis industry has lost a big seed distributor - and possibly hundreds of people have lost income = food on the table - in these difficult times - last year - I grew a little auto 'freebie' seed I got from dinafem (not sure of the variety) - here is a picture of it -

    If they weren’t selling the green, then they’re bigger people than I.
    Even if every last bud was seeded, I couldn’t in all good conscience trash the remains.
    There’d be buckets of extracts to be had!

    If you get that wealthy with no legal explanation, then you’ll shine up on the radar for sure.

    But if you own a bank, you can legally rob the whole world apparently.

    They don' t sell only seeds ,
    they' re the first supplyer for all growing purpose ( lights , boxs , soil , feeding , whatever you need. ) .


    for me the amount is not improbable .
