    Where did Crop King get their White Widow strain?

    I asked once before when I was on the phone with them but I don't think I ever really got an answer. Would love to know the history of this companies strain. Feel free to chime in and let us know Crop king. Or anyone who knows.
    Thank you

    I would love to know the same about all their strains... Seems to be very secretive!

    What's funny I asked Nirvana same thing and this was the response. With this being said I wonder do all seeds banks do this.

    Nirvana, has from day one, simply knocked off (copied) their Widow, Sk#1, Northern Lights (Aurora), etc. etc.
    They did this by buying seeds from other Dutch companies and making more seeds. Crop King would have done the same thing, they produce knock offs.
    If you want to know more on the specific history of White Widow, go to mrnice.nl Forums and locate the Black Widow section.

    In short: Years back, Shanti, who was Arjan's breeder at Greenhouse, who created the Widow, left, and took the original White Widow parent stock with him, leaving Greenhouse without. He formed MNS in Switzerland, where it still is today. Info on the original parent stock is on the forums as well.

    So what's a good original seedbank bc there is a huge price difference between crop king, Nirvana, Herbies, etc.....

    MNS (Mr.Nice Seeds) sell their seeds direct. Attitude also distributes MNS as well.
    Nirvana Seeds are decent, cheap, and reliable, but they're knockoffs-like fake Yeezeys on Canal Street. I know little about Crop King. Herbies doesn't make seeds, they're just a distributor-if they carry MNS they're probably a safe bet as a retailer. If you want the best representation of a variety, always buy from the breeder they originate with.

    Don't be discouraged in trying out seeds from other places.

    CKS has always been great service. If you have problems they will help you out.

    You don't have to go with classic strains, try out autos, photos and new strains.

    I am sure you will be very happy with the strains CKS has to offer.

    re: Where did Crop King get their White Widow strain?

    I don't know, I am now not overly happy with CKS. I have a bunch of other plants from other "seed banks" we will see how they do in comparison.

    Today in live chat I asked her (maybe a girl) about candy canes not auto flowering. She told me to switch to 12/12 to induce flowering. Like no shit, but I wanted auto's...

    I honestly think the Candy Cane they sold me are not Candy Cane.

    Their customer service is OK but nothing great same BS responses, and I am in their country. I always thought of CKS as a good breeder but now I think of them more as a seed "bank".

    I feel your pain hard to really know what you got.

    Because you are not in Canada and they didn't send you their bullshit marketing material. Feel lucky!
