Skunk Really Works, a pioneer in crop science, is thrilled to announce a significant milestone in their Saigon Skunk seed project. This groundbreaking initiative has successfully completed its first stage, with the seeds now beginning to germinate.

The Saigon Skunk collection, a homage to the rich heritage of Vietnamese landrace cannabis strains from the 1960s, blends historical significance with modern cultivation technology. This unique project was born out of a serendipitous gift — seeds originally collected by a U.S. soldier during the Vietnam War era, which lay dormant for decades in a pill bottle until their recent discovery.

The revival of these aged seeds was made possible by the collaboration with Cannomics Labs Tissue Culture Company. Utilizing advanced tissue culture and germination techniques, they have managed to rekindle the vitality of these seeds, bringing a piece of cannabis history back to life.

Franklin Beans has worked tirelessly to ensure the success of this project. Their efforts are not only a tribute to the legacy of seed collector Ray Darcy but also an illustration of the power of collaborative spirit within the cannabis industry.

As these seeds continue to sprout, Skunk Really Works looks forward to sharing the next phases of the Saigon Skunk project. This endeavor not only preserves genetic diversity but also provides cannabis enthusiasts a link to the past, fused with the technological advancements of today.
