There's a lot of 'marketing' in the world of marijuana seeds, eh?

I say this because I have run into world-class strains which are really quite magnificent, both in growth and in the product which results, and the things last one year and are never heard from again. I expect that the opposite may be true, that some good but unremarkable stuff benefits from marketing - a term which covers a lot of ground, from advertising, rumour, to who-knows-what. Just like other types of products, there always has to be new stuff, whether it's better or not. Eh?

That's how it goes nowadays. Hyped up with pretty pictures on IG.

People don't smoke to judge weed anymore. They look to judge and read the commercial text underneath it.

I remember when I back started smoking, we wanted to know more about what we just smoked. Not like it goes now with we want what we see on this picture.

It's all about money and hyped out marketing.

There should be a reviews section here where people can check to see what's good and what's bs.

Yes, the high priced US market in particular has taken hype & branding to a whole new level. There's too many breeders to try, so the newer commercial ventures want their share. And if the genetics don't stand out, the advertising has to.

My rule is a hybrid with less than a paragraph or twos description, no mention of the type of effect, or sold by a cartoon image, isn't worth investing in. If a strain don't sell, it's dropped, like the end of the fashion season, and there's probably some lesser known gems that don't stick around for long.

Sadly, smoke reports seem to have fallen out of favour too. Just grow diaries with no mention of rare qualities, or smoke reports on store bought bud. Thought of a design for a new reports site, might be useful.

You will also see friends of a set breeder attack and post lots of negativity about competitor seed breeders work you see that in here to by set people attacking any of Nevil or shantis work.

Yet for decades Nevil's work was at the top of the pyramid.

I notice a lack of finishing of grow threads by the authors. The people take 15 photos of the 2 day old sprout write all the 15 strains names out and the breeder. They document the entire grow then say " I'll be back for the smoke report !!!" then never return.
