Back in 1967, Soma, the founder of Soma Seeds, was working at IBM as a mail clerk in the office products division on Madison Avenue in NYC. Another employee helped him to get some Marijuana rolled up in joints. Right after work, he walked down to the East River dressed in his three-piece suit and tie and lit up his first joint. He instantly fell in love with the calm feeling it brought to his whole being. He was 18 years old.
In the 45 years that passed since his first joint he has found cannabis to be one of the most positive forces in his life.
He started growing cannabis in 1971 in southern Vermont. He owned and ran a vegetarian restaurant and bakery. As he became more aware of his diet, a deeper knowledge of ecology and its effect on the enviroment came with the territory. This naturally led to growing cannabis in an organic eco-friendly manner. From that point on, he has been finding different ways to make my thumbs greener.
Through the years this magnificant plant species has helped teach him the art of having and taking care of houseplants, the art of murturing, and the art of photography. Far from being a demotivator, marijuana has become interwoven with many of his interests. Although marijuana laws are never fair around the planet, he refuses to give up his right to have his my sacrament and medicine constantly near him in the form of clothing, food, plants, paper and smoke. In this way he does his part to overgrow the whole darn place.
Soma started in growing marijuana using eco-friendly and organic method in southern Vermont USA and he is now based in Amsterdam. He has since become an authority in biologically friendly marijuana cultivation process.
Soma Seeds is an earth friendly business striving to think of earth first in the business that they create. They grow their seeds biologically, and let their hearts guide us with the plants, not calendars, not money, not power trips, but a sacredness, a vibration of mutual trust, an exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, a friendship.
Soma is a hemp loving cannabis breeder and writer for various respected cannabis publications.
