I can think of a few 'Kings of the cannabis jungles' - I have a favourite even..
But if you actually google:
'King of cannabis'
It comes up with someone I've met, respect & like.
Get a new appreciation for what the Strain Hunters actually do. I can't help but like any cannabis industry, business, dispensary who is helping a community and you can not deny - they are helping big time & have been for a long time. To watch the video, we are reminded Franco in no longer here.. he gave his life for 'us' if you think about it - working in the jungle, searching for the perfect strain. I believe he is watching & helping still and will forever be with the Strain Hunters for generations to come.
Arjan – the King of Cannabis Commitment to Conserve the Genetic
If you’ve been in the cannabis business, be it cultivation or sales, you’d have surely heard about Arjan, who is regarded as the King of Cannabis. And, if you’ve just entered the world of cannabis, you ought to know about this successful cannabis businessman. Arjan, the founder and owner of several cannabis businesses like Green House Seed Company, Green House Coffeeshops, and Strain Hunters, is the only marijuana breeder in the world to have won around 39 high times cannabis cups.
I think what the Strain Hunters are doing with the Africans is incredible & difficult work and they should be praised. They certainly don't have the 'luxuries of home' I am also a fan of his instagram account - It makes me SMILE. Many have NO clue of what is really involved.. Arjen educates, makes us aware of life for others less fortunate and is helping an entire community in more ways than many can even begin to realize to what degree.
It goes well beyond cannabis.
These are the people who are making a difference in the WORLD & bringing you quality cannabis. Hard working business men not your average cannabis consumers.' Certainly not 'stoners'.
Once considered 'criminals' now the King can sit up on his throne doing what he does best.. Growing some of the best cannabis in the world and trying to make a difference by making the lives of many easier at the same time.
I've met him on a few occasions and believe he is a very 'down to earth', nice guy.
You get what you work & IMO he deserves all he's got.
I agree with Franco when he said along the lines.. 'you can't dislike the poor- we've been there and you can't dislike the rich - we're going there." Isn't everyone striving for better? If you can improve the lives of others along the way... amen.
I respect and admire anyone who works hard for what they get.
I wish there were more like Arjan... there are and I am blessed to know a few.
* I will say - Arjan has a TEAM of hard working people behind him.
Time to focus on those who deserve the attention and love for they are making the world a better place through cannabis & erasing the stigma AND providing us with Quality Cannabis for all our recreational and medicinal needs.
More Lions.. more kings.. soon.
