We are a small company based in the south-west of England. Our first premises were a porta cabin in front of a garage, which is where our name kind of came from. The first thought was the Seed Cabin, but this sounded too creepy!!! So we looked up cabin in a thesaurus and came up with the Seed Shack. This sounded more like a place where you could relax and enjoy your seed collection.
We believe in the preservation of these beautiful plants and so by selling their seeds we hope to keep them around for future generations to enjoy (should it ever become legal in our country to grow them of course!!). Not only should they be preserved for their recreational uses but (in our minds, most importantly), also for their medicinal value.
There are at least two active chemicals in marijuana that researchers think have medicinal applications. Those are cannabidiol (CBD) — which seems to impact the brain without a high— and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — which has pain relieving (and other) properties.
Most people know about the benefits of cannabis with cancer but there are more studies being done into the benefits of cannabis for medical use. It is claimed that cannabidiol (CBD) can be used in the treatment of Dravet Syndrome, it is a catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy. There is tentative evidence that CBD had an anti-psychotic effect, but research in this area is limited. Nabiximols (USAN, trade name Sativex) is an aerosolized mist for oral administration containing a near 1:1 ratio of CBD and THC. The drug was approved by Canadian authorities in 2005 to alleviate pain associated with multiple sclerosis.
The list goes on!! We hope with our customers help to keep this beautiful species alive and to prevent plant genocide!!
The legal bit!! All seed are sold for souvenir and collection purposes only, to help preserve genetics for future generations. We at Seed Shack strongly advise any one purchasing our products that they check their local laws carefully before doing so. Seed Shack cannot be held accountable for, and does not condone, any unlawful activity involving our products. If Seed Shack believes that any of their customers are using their products for unlawful activity we reserve the right to refuse their custom.
