As the owner of BC Seeds, I’m often asked about what it takes to run a successful cannabis magazine and seed bank. Both are a labour of love and labour intensive. The world has more interest than ever before, especially for my readers and growers. With the legalization of cannabis in many parts of the world, there has been a surge in the number of cannabis-related publications. However, running a cannabis magazine, forum or website requires more than just a passion for the plant.

We also have a strong social media presence, with active accounts on all major platforms, allowing us to connect with readers and grow our audience.
Stagnate and dieFinally, running a successful cannabis magazine requires a commitment to excellence and a willingness to adapt and evolve.

Mr. BC Seeds
Mr. BC Seeds is an over educated old school hippy who has been involved in the cannabis industry since the 1970's. He is one of the most experienced marijuana breeders in Canada if not the entire world. He was the first to use the most advanced breeding techniques in 2008 to create 42 of the world's strongest cannabis strains. He has been writing in-depth articles about cannabis in Canada for decades and looks forward to continue bringing you cutting edge cannabis strains for the decades to come. Mr. BC Seeds uses a "pen name" because he still travels the world collecting cannabis strains and continues researching cannabis in laboratories of non-legalized countries.
