Everything you need to know about Sensi Seeds
Dutch breeder Sensi Seeds is one of the favourites of our ICE Cannabis Seed community and we thought it was about time we delved a little deeper into their bank, founded back in 1985… somehow that’s over thirty years ago!
Ben Dronkers, the founder, has helped craft some strains that have gone on to change the genetic landscape of cannabis seeds as we know them today, improving the choice we have as collectors.

Specifically, the company grew and specialised in feminised seeds which now dominate the industry, and have a range of sister companies that educate on all things weed. Based in The Netherlands, they’re a truly international brand.
In their bank they have 17 cannabis strains, mostly feminised and some regulars. In addition to their seeds, they’ve placed themselves as a voice for cannabis activism and are known as a responsible company in the community.
