Who pays these crazy prices?

213 posts in this topic

I wouldn't buy a Ferrari or a Rolls Royce or *insert any expensive/overpriced item you like* but I think overall humanity has benefitted by the very small percentage of these that turn out to be brilliant.....

someone has to pay for the massive amount of failures...

Is the place in Smithfield still open?

It's still there Jimboo, although they do not sell seeds from there. I bought some stuff from in there and asked the guy did he know any shops because the one round the corner closed down. The guy said its not somthing they can discuss they just dont talk about it.

In house genetics have always interested me, but i have never taken the plunge due to the price.

 

I still might do one day.

 

To be honest though no ones making people buy them, so i am happy for people to buy them for whatever price they see fit.

I love some of the new strains on the scene don't like the mental prices but I won't ever pay that. Will say though as other strains have got popular, I love coming across an old classic. Not seen cheese in a long time so probably would be happy to see some. Where as before in London it was all you could along with ami. Last night my dad's mate visited and he had some bubblegum and doctor. Not seen either in so long and both had been grown and dried with love lol . Soon as he opened the bag the smells took me right back. He reckons who he got it from just buys it but did ask him to see if he could get a clone. Anyone else find that they love coming across a strain that's not so popular today? Would happily grow it.

The most expensive seeds I ever bought cost £120-£140 for 16 (got 19) Sensi Seeds Jack Herer, circa whenever it first came out.

 

You could buy commercial F2 seeds for a quid a bean, usually ten packs sold in almost every head shop.They replicated commercial top seeds with slightly different names.  I tried them but stuck to F1 seeds as they did produce a more stable offspring with a lot of the siblings showing characteristics of that strain. After all, I have little space so like to fill it with plants that have a good reputation and plants which I already smoked in Holland.

 

The customer is king though. If we refuse to pay insane prices then nobody is going to ask a small fortune. I think its the one born every minute scenario. You could offer seeds for £100 a piece and someone, somewhere, will bite the hook.

 

Seed companies have costs but if they grow bud, seeded or not, its got some value. The hash from seeded buds grown in optimum conditions, is plentiful. I once seeded a crop by accident, every last clone seeded from top to bottom. Between the hash and oil I got, there was little waste.

 

There is no mystery in producing seeds. Anyone can do it. Admittedly, the more space you have and more plants the easier it is to produce something people would pay for.

 

I've produced seeds by the traditional method of choosing a good strong resiny male and mating it with the ladies. Resulting seeds were male and female. Wish I'd have kept the seeds but a series of moves and so on you lose bits of the collection of pot related things. Gave most seeds away and scattered even more back when hippies would tell you to simply scatter seeds in the hope of a plant being there the next year. :)

 

Seeds are overpriced but the average pot grower has money to spare because he or she is not spending stupid money buying cannabis.

 

Also, due to prohibition, many of us who would like to produce cheap top notch seeds are held back from doing so. This is a shame, you only need one seeded plant to pretty much be on the honour roll for people who have produced notable and legendary seeds.

 

It could be you! :)

Has anyone got any advice on the electric punches? I'm struggling to get them going.....out of 10 fems,  4 have died to what looks like damping off (even tho I didn't overwater the second time around....tried 2 first then another 2) 1 hasn't germinated and I've just potted 1 that has (4 left over)......this is my second grow, my first was th seeds strawberry glue which came out absolutely perfect 4 my first grow......the only thing I'm doing different this time round is a different medium.....I've gone to coco/perlite 70/30 with charge as opposed to just wanna coco like last time.....could this be the cause??? Any info or advise appreciated. Thanks.

I can't believe it, but finally the fun strains are coming through with great quality at reasonable money in our neck of the woods! 

The thing I love about the newer stuff is the different terp profiles - so different to what I've been used to, and fun to explore more of the green goddess - 

got an oz of Lodi Dodi and Space Candy for 300 - sealed (but not vacuum packed), with boveda's, no PGR's (obvious taste, smell, look and feel when they're present!), and the smoke is so so so smooth. 

Lodi smashes my head off - instant sledgehammer with smooth banana peel and earth tones. the Lodi smells of PURE banana, I've never had a banana terp like this before! 

space candy is more of an obvious spicey sweet pine with a creeping high - great euphoric vibes. 

finally this american hype seems to be dropping a bit if you know the right people - fuck paying £100 an 1/8th hahahaha I dont know how people can sleep at night paying that....

and the best part is - one healthy looking seed came out of the space candy bud, I hope I get a couple more :D

As for seeds that are great that aren't stupid money, I'd really recommend the Cali connection gold line - £90 retail or £60 with wholesale and delivery.... 

Cali connection seedbank has given me nothing but gorgeous massive plants 100% of the time.

When you theoretically put a based on those prices what can be pulled from an 0.8x0.8 tent lol it's just nuts as fuck 

I certainly wouldn't want POCA using these ridiculous figures.

£75k a year production from a dr80 lollol is be up the swanny for 150k POCA with 4 plants in my 1.2x1.5 lol

 

Just a reality check for any idiots willing to pay these prices, an eighth of 24 carrat gold costs less. Think about that.

 

£25 pound a pop joints with a monthly bill of 4 grand......what a fucking joke.

 

Remember that cannabis and tomato require much the same to grow. 

Would anyone in this world pay £25 for a tomato? No. So why pay it for weed?

Nope

 

Its all about finding something that YOU like. Yeah others may find a nice pheno and want to share the love but everyones tastes and expectations are different. Imo its all about planting as many seeds as possible to find a unique plant that suits my needs fuck anyone else! lol 

 

peace!! 

 

Lil d.

 

oh and fuck paying more than £80 for seeds (regs) its a fooking liberty!!
