King of cannabis arjan

Arjan: I thought you dropped away. I heard some sound. Me and my wife, I started growing other varieties then. I started breeding and working, and I made special sativa strains, and I was bringing them to the most famous coffeeshop at that time, like four of them. And I gave my new varieties, and they all said after two months, “You can come and pick it up because nobody’s buying it.”

Interviewer and Arjan: [laugh]
Interviewer: For people that aren’t familiar with you, can you give us just a little bit of background on who you are, and how you got into the cannabis business?

Arjan: So a very, very, very intelligent move from the Colorado State, and I hope it goes like that in the future.
Interviewer: Okay. For people that don’t know what the term “land race” means, can you describe that because that’s a big part of what you’re doing with strain hunting?
Arjan: Oh nobody does. It’s a big myth at the moment. Nobody is using genetic medication techniques in the marijuana world as far as I know. We just make hybrids and that’s it, very simple.
Arjan: That’s one place to log in. We have GreenHouseSeeds.nl, and these are two main websites where everybody can find us and everybody comes together there. Another nice thing is to watch us grow, HD.TV where there is a lot of people putting their little things on. And, of course, Instagram is really, really important, strain on Instagram where they can follow our trips and see a lot of nice pictures. And, yeah, that’s basically the way to follow us.
Arjan: And you can think whatever you want to about this message, but for me this is a very good message. Now there’s another very, very big league, the league of Paul Allen, the league of Sir Richard Branson and these kind of people. For me this is very important because these people are respected businessmen, and now they are standing up and advocating our case. And they are also financially contributing to my organization a lot. Sir Richard Branson donated 150,000 Euros last year for our Congress and a lot of mayors attended and a lot of people from America.

Interviewer: Okay. Well, how do you think you got so much of the market share?

Interview with “The Cannabis King,” Arjan Roskam. Arjan is best known as a strain hunter and his famous strains have won over 30 Cannabis Cups.

He’s won 38 Cannabis Cups and has dubbed himself the King of Cannabis.

In 1992 he opened his first coffee shop in Amsterdam and has since crafted his marijuana-breeding skills into a market-savvy empire known as Green House Seed Company, which rakes in millions of dollars a year.

VICE joins Arjan and his crew of strain hunters in Colombia to look for three of the country’s rarest types of weed, strains that have remained genetically pure for decades. In grower’s terms, these are called landraces. We trudge up mountains and crisscross military checkpoints in the country’s still-violent south, and then head north to the breathtaking Caribbean coast. As the dominoes of criminalization fall throughout the world, Arjan is positioned to be at the forefront of the legitimate international seed trade.
