Seedsman took some time to speak with the folks at Dankonomics, giving them our 10 quick questions in order to find out a little bit more about their well respected seedbank.
1. How was Dankonomics born?
We were born in the prohibition years, back before good herb was barely available and mostly everything was brick herb. I remember getting short changed a lot, and couldn’t get good quality and so began my quest for the best. Buying seeds from Holland was risky back then, and being a young guy that was still in school, I didn’t really have anywhere indoors to keep mother plants consistently at least. So seeds were my best option. I began breeding lines I liked, and from there learned a lot through trial and error (growing thousands of seeds a year gives lots of room to experiment), trying different breeding techniques and learning the proper way to do it thanks to legendary breeders.
2. Why was Dankonomics created? What is the aim of the seedbank?
Throughout 20+ years now we have grown. I breed what I like, and try to thoroughly test and stress test everything to ensure good vigor and ease of growth in all my lines. Only using elite clones, and elite seed lines, to create even better hybrids.
3. What makes your seeds different?
My seeds are created in a living organic recycled soil, with no harsh chemicals or insecticides/fungicides. All over-matured, and cured to try to ensure longevity, and vigour. Remember, scuffing my seeds before use is necessary because I leave the outer shell in tact.
4. What is your most popular strain?
Banana Kush, and Stardawg hybrids are our biggest sellers.
5. What unique strain would you recommend people try from your collection?
Whitefire Funk I’d highly recommend. It has the funk and flavor of the 91 chem, and the power of the 1988 G13. Just keep it short early on to ensure a low center of gravity, by topping early and often. It’s fast growth will make up for it. It is a powerhouse smoke with bag appeal, power and flavor.
6. In one sentence, explain why customers should buy from Dankonomics.
If you want quality yields, ease of growth, low mould and bug issues, with no hype driven market gimmicks, look no further than Dankonomics genetics.
7. Any special/secret cultivation tips you could let our readers know about?
Super-cropping and topping fast growing strains, while maintaining a low center of gravity, and allowing for better light penetration will up your yields immensely.
8. Do you have any new strains in the pipeline?
New strains are always in the process. More Stardawg, Banana Kush, Fruity Pebbles OG, and the White crosses are coming soon, as father lines and mothers. 3+ years of work have been put into the Stardawg projects, so slowly but surely, we will have them available.
9. What does the future hold for Dankonomics?
Dankonomics Genetics is constantly in the laboratory trying and testing new strains and lines as well as working on stabilizing existing lines to ensure many years of high quality cannabis genetics. Some old school projects will be coming down the road so be on the lookout!
