Every once in a while, during our StrainHunting adventures, we come across a breeder who may have had some skills in horticulture, but totally missed the boat in marketing, and completely missed the boat in terms of staying true to the plant.

Porno Seeds uses overt sexuality to sell their Five Phenos.  Using names that correlate the strains to popular adult film stars, Porno Seeds is attempting to do what every single other industry has hired a 5th Avenue marketing company to do – use SEX to sell.

This will be a growing and ongoing theme in the world of Cannabis and Cannabis business.  The obvious aphrodisiac properties of Cannabis make it a major item for the Sex Strings to be plucked in marketing and commercials.

Using beautiful women to sell something is as old as prostitution, which is the oldest profession – so Cannabis will be marketed using this strategy no doubt.

Porno Seeds is over the top.  No one who is interested in Quality Genetics or Medicinal Properties of the strains is going to appreciate the information given or the pictures that are included.

Here’s their line-up boiled down from pages filled with porno-graphic women and slang sounding names.

NYC Diesel x “Mexico – Afghanistan” 40Sativa/60Indica

North Indian Indica x Haitian Haze ( 3 phenos) 50/50

Indica Mexico – Ecuador – Thailand – SE Afghanistan 80Sativa/20Indica

Indica – Afghanistan X Brazil 20Sativa/80Indica

Lowryder x Afghani, Ruderalis – Afghanistan (Helmund) Indica-AutoFlower

Regardless of whether Porno Seeds is actually finding it’s own Landrace genetics like it says it is, the crossing and marketing they’ve done on the above phenos is not something a serious grower is going to opt for when other Breeders are offering much more information and genetic background, and growing information.

Pornography and Cannabis Breeding do not need to overlap.  Lets acknowledge Porno Seeds as a step in the human/cannabis co-evolutionary stroll together.

Breeders, there is nothing wrong with assuming your Genetics can sell themselves based on the benefits they bring the human system.
