Green House Seed Selection and Quality Review
Green House Seed Company began in Amsterdam, in 1985, as the passion project of founder Arjan Roskam. Since then, it has grown considerably in both scope and popularity. Since the beginning, Green House has been a contributor to the fight for global cannabis legalization. Green House Seed Company still operates an in-person cannabis seeds shop in Amsterdam, though a huge portion of its business comes from online orders from those people who aren’t lucky enough to live in the cannabis capital of the world.
In recent years, a concerning number of buyers have experienced germination issues, including seeds failing to sprout, plants growing up weak, deformed, or hermaphrodite, or successfully-grown weed lacking the expected potency. Another factor that some buyers find off-putting is the colorful coating Green House covers its seeds in. The company states this is for the purpose of telling different strains apart, but it seems that most buyers do not care for this method.
For the most part, Green House Seed Company has a good reputation and high ratings on popular public forums. However, a large enough number of buyers with bad experiences have drawn concern about the consistency of Green House’s lauded genetics and reliability of its shipping methods.
