Yes,red rider. Do bring forward those old school Colombians genepools.
The recently entry genepool, "strain crippy" ,has also contaminated the genepool on small island ,which was previously predominantly Colombian, from the 70's.

And now the proliferation of Internet budporn's,have got farmer on island attention.
They're not studying about the region's landraces.
I will love to get my thumb's on some ,Thia's (south east Asians,African's ;Malawi's, Ethiopians.. South American; Colombians.
Red Rider,blessing on that mission of yours,we all are rooting for you,grower!

Thank you very much, however my quest is not so noble as I'm not trying to preserve, I just like the Colombians and I want to grow them myself in country. We are still going through the licencing process and I really hate to say too much until we have it but the majority of the work at my licensed finca will be long flowering tropical narrow leaf plants. My Colombian investors (I have no money) want me to grow the plants I want with the exception of CBD plants. However I want to grow the CBD cause I believe that is what killed my bladder cancer and I still use it daily.


Even without the finca the rider always has some Colombian growing.

These guys have interesting CBD seeds availble for the new green rush of so called hemp flower market

Really its some complex phenos and very high cbd and terpene content that makes it valuable

Would probably want to hook up with oneof the farms and get seed that way so dont have to buy 1000seeds

Anyway,this is where all the farms are getting for 1$ a seed

TORONTO, Dec. 1, 2019 /CNW/ – Avicanna Inc. (“Avicanna” or the “Company“) (TSX: AVCN) (OTCQX: AVCNF) (FSE: 0NN) today announces that LC2019, Inc. (“LC2019“), the entity that holds a license to Avicanna’s intellectual property in the United States, has advised Avicanna that it has entered into an agreement (the “License Agreement“) with a subsidiary of Kings Garden Inc.

As announced by Avicanna in its November 26, 2019 press release, Avicanna has an option to acquire all of the outstanding shares of LC2019, which option may be exercised by Avicanna at any time and is expected to be exercised upon cannabis cultivation, processing, distribution and possession becoming federally legal in the United States.
Under the terms of the License Agreement, LC2019, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, has provided the Kings Garden team with an exclusive license to use the Rho Phyto trademark and to manufacture, market, distribute and sell the Rho Phyto advanced formulation products in the State of California. In consideration of the license granted under the License Agreement, the Kings Garden team has agreed to pay to LC2019 a royalty equal to 40% of the net profits from the sale of the Rho Products. Kings Garden, through its licensed subsidiary, will produce, manufacture and sell the Rho Products in the State of California. The initial term of the License Agreement is three years.
“We are thrilled to see the Rho Phyto brand and advanced cannabis product offerings have their initial launch in the State of California which represents the largest and one of the most sophisticated consumer markets in the world. We are also excited that the LC2019 team has decided to partner with the Kings Garden team which have demonstrated industry leading products, quality and execution. We hope that this launch in California will provide the Rho Phyto brand with a foothold in the US market place, help establish a leading global brand and attain both market information and efficacy data around the proprietary product lines,” stated Aras Azadian, Chief Executive Officer of Avicanna.

The Colombian government allowed the growing of medicinal cannabis in 2016 with the 1787 bill/ 613 decree. The first licenses were issued in 2017. Subsequently there has been some amendments to the laws, some improving conditions for the growers and some not improving conditions for the growers, but none affecting the legality of growing.
