“Every seed is a new opportunity” –That’s part of the shared philosophy that brought together two Trinity County farmers to found the South Fork Seed Collective. Neighbors Daniel and Matt formed the collective two years ago but seed breeding is actually something that developed organically over 10 years.
Matt and Daniel began experimenting with seeds and cannabis genetics to keep themselves interested in the craft. “It’s so boring just growing Headband over and over again,” Daniel said. Matt and Daniel believe in the entourage effect, a scientific theory that terpenes combined with cannabinoids like THC and CBD are critical to the overall effect a strain has on a patient. Every compound is important. The terpenoid and cannabinoid levels of all the females they use to progress their lines are tested and that information is used to track the medical efficacy of ratios of terpenes and cannabinoids.
“ We set out with clearly defined goals when developing new varieties , rejecting all plants that fall out side of our goals regardless of personal preference,” Daniel said of South Fork Seed Collective. “We look for strong plants with robust structure, we pay attention to the levels of terpenes and cannabinoids. The end game is to create a homogenous variety that is medically valuable.”
