“Tradition is what makes the weed good in the first place,” according to the House of Aficionado crew. This Mendocino seed company’s goal is to showcase to the world the heritage cannabis genetics the Emerald Triangle has created and preserved. Through the limited release of rare and potent strains such as Black Lime Reserve and their high-end branding approach, they are elevating the seed market.
There are four people at the core of Aficionado. Chief Operating Officer Ele Elston is a Mendocino native, and she manages the many details of the business and maintains strong relationships with local farmers and breeders. Mean Gene is the Chief Breeder and Leo Stone is the CEO and Co-Chief Breeder — they plan for next year’s seed collection and research breeding possibilities. But when it comes to hash, the House of Aficionado turns to Hashishin Frenchy Cannoli, who has traveled the world to learn the many methods of making hash.
As the driving force behind this high-end seed brand, the Aficionado team has produced results. Aficionado is the first seed company to have their genetics win the top 3 places in the Emerald Cup for three years in a row. They also believe in their work: all seeds are 100% guaranteed to germinate, and they will replace any seeds that fail to germinate.
