Brothers Grimm Seeds
Brothers Grimm Seeds
Brothers Grimm Seeds was founded in 1996, when arrangements were made though Canadian seed reseller Heaven’s Stairway to distribute cannabis strains created by MrSoul and partner Sly. Known for selectively backcrossing, cubing and inbreeding some of the rarest of cannabis genetics on earth, Brothers Grimm became known for uncompromising quality & for producing genetic stability, high potency, short flowering times, heavy resin production, and intensely tropical terpenes. In 2002, the company abruptly closed due to security concerns. For many years after our seeds were no longer available, growers either jealously guarded their favorite clone mothers or shared them with their friends to keep them alive. Some breeders famously used our Cinderella & Apollo to create new hybrids as well as breeding filial generations as far out as F5.
MrSoul waited more than a decade to retrieve the precious clones and seeds he’d stashed safely away. In 2015, he met Duke Diamond and together they developed a concrete plan to resurrect Brothers Grimm in Colorado. The combination of these two breeders’ abilities, along with a deep reservoir of unique cannabis cultivars, is the foundation of our company.
Brothers Grimm are famous for creating high THC strains that produce consistently outstanding results. The creation of Cinderella 99, through a multi-generation breeding program, distinguished us long ago as breeders who take the time to do things right.
After a dozen years on the sidelines, we can’t help but observe that today’s seed market is flooded with poly-hybrid crosses, seemingly created with no logical, deliberate goal or breeding plan. Such seeds produce plants of many different phenotypes – like lottery numbers.
By contrast, Brothers Grimm only cross a male and female after having thought of all the reasons WHY we want to do so. We design our seed lines to produce consistent plants that all share the qualities we selected for in the breeding program that created it.
We are able to take this approach because our breeding stock is a rare collection of landrace and other stable cultivars, each representing unique genetics. Using this gene pool, we painstakingly choose and combine males and females in a deliberate program to create hybrid seeds which produce plants consistently displaying the desired characteristics. There’s very little variation; our clients don’t have to hunt through several different phenotypes hoping to find a good one.
So which characteristics do we select for, when breeding our hybrids? The goal in each breeding program will vary somewhat of course, but the general list of traits we are known for include:
- Compact overall plant structure
- Dense budding
- No hermaphroditism
- High resin production
- Intense psychoactivity
- Unique palette of terpenes
- Optimal yield
Apollo 13: This skunky girl will make your eyes water with her pungent perfume. The delicate balance of indica/sativa makes Apollo 13 perfect for growers limited to a single strain. The long, fat colas and sparkling, sticky side branches really weigh in at harvest time. This is the type of smoke you can’t hold down; it expands and blasts off from the lungs.
She’s BACK… the legendary Cinderella 99. When Brothers Grimm closed in 2002, the small batches of our original seeds were quickly depleted. Over the years, elite growers continued to clone their Cinderella 99 moms to preserve them, and several notable breeders continued the legacy by creating hybrids of C99.
“Shortly before leaving NYC, my buddy “subcool” from TGA sent me a personalized copy of a book he’d written. In it, he waxed poetic over how much he loved the Genius bud I sent him a long time ago. I called him and thanked him for passionately continuing my genetics over the years while I was MIA and told him I’d create this strain, Green Avenger in his honor.
Our heirloom Sensi Hashplant by our Afghani father produces an old school line of indica bliss with all the great qualities of a old school indica hybrid. The narcotic euphoria, the incredible Afghani flavor, the aroma of rich, hashy, acrid pine and savory tones await you in this hybrid.
Short compact kush plants that are outstanding resin producers of the highest order. Dense, rich and sticky flowers combined with classic kush and hashy aromas can be expected. A hash makers delight.
We received so much popular demand to re-issue Rosetta Stone that it was decided to go one better. MrSoul had wanted this release to be even heavier in resin production and overall yield without sacrificing flavor. So this Rosetta Stone flowers a bit longer, but what a joy it is to behold these sparkling colas finishing their 8th and final week. It clones remarkably well and is generally an easy plant to work with.
