There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.

Sensi Seeds is the multifaceted company of Ben Dronkers, who founded it in 1985. Ever since then he and his family and friends have continued their mission to do whatever it takes to enhance, protect , promote and love cannabis in all its forms, and mostly to protect and further develop its genotypes for future generations to come. In the early eighties Ben Dronkers himself went to various places in the world to find the original genetics of important strains such as Afghani and Haze and succeeded in bringing them to the Netherlands to further develop new and improved genetics and top-quality cannabis seeds. Sensi Seeds is responsible for the birth of many stable hybrids and deserves a top position in the history of commercial cannabis.

Information Sensi Seeds
Today, Sensi Seeds is one of the most renowned cannabis seed banks on the planet. Although it all started with one man’s passion for cannabis, the company has grown into a legendary titan over the decades, getting involved in every aspect of the cannabis community. Now they have branches that reach far beyond cannabis breeding, with various aspects of the company specifically dedicated to the advancement of industrial hemp, as well as another dedicated to educating the public on the many benefits cannabis has to offer society – helping dispel the myths perpetuated by the War on Drugs.
Sensi Seeds is more than just a seed company; it is a part of the lifeblood of the cannabis movement. Everything Sensi does is done by putting the plant first.
The history of Sensi Seeds
With this in mind, here is a rundown of Sensi Seed’s history, giving you a glimpse into the core values of this seed bank – one of the first to offer cannabis seeds to the general public.
Sensi Seeds’ story all comes back to Ben Dronkers, the founder of Sensi Seeds. It was back in the 70’s when Dronkers first got into growing cannabis that the insatiable appetite for knowledge took hold. Not only did he start collecting seeds, but he also worked closely with botanists, researchers and even farmers to grasp a better understanding of the plant. Over time, Dronkers concluded that, irrespective of growing skill or care, the core genetic quality of a strain dictated its potential for growth.
With this knowledge firmly in hand, he set about exploring the world, collecting cannabis from across the globe; cataloguing and documenting the particularly impressive examples he found. Everywhere with a rich history of cannabis cultivation, Dronkers visited, and the collection of top-class sativa and indica seeds he brought back home with him in the 80’s would be the foundation of Sensi Seeds’ breeding program. With these, he began to experiment, crossing the various strains he had collected and working to stabilise them into all new varieties of cannabis.
It was around this time that the first wave of US hybrid strains hit the scene, such as Skunk and Haze – and Dronkers was one of three Dutch breeders to get his hands on them. This only skyrocketed his knowledge of breeding and allowed him to further bolster and strengthen his breeding program with all new genetics.
In 1985, Dronkers took his creations and founded the Sensi Seed Club – a club for connoisseurs, and the first iteration of Sensi Seeds. With this, his “hobby” breeding took on another level, and the club worked to centralise their growing, as well as standardise the entire process involved. It led to a need for a newer, bigger area to work with – which is when Dronkers went official, obtaining the facilities required to grow, monitor and document his various cannabis strains with scientific precision. It was the true beginning of the Sensi Seeds we know today.
Of course, the story for Sensi Seeds did not end in the 80’s. It was in 1986 that they first opened up the Sensi Seed Club shop in Amsterdam, supplying their genetics and those from The Seed Bank – a company founded by another Dutch breeder who received the first US hybrid genetics. In 1991, Dronkers bought The Seed Bank, combining the companies and expanding their genetic library even further.
Since then, Sensi Seeds have continued to hunt down world-class genetics and use them to innovate. Such results include Mother’s Finest, Big Bud, Skunk #1, and Master Kush – all renowned favourites among connoisseurs, veterans and novices alike. In 2006, Dronkers was also offered the opportunity to buy the Flying Dutchman seed bank, another of the Dutch originals. This further augmented the Sensi genetic pool and ensured that the Flying Dutchman legacy was maintained.
Today, Sensi Seeds sit in the halls of fame as one of the most responsible, knowledgeable and reputable seed banks there is. They continue to push cannabis breeding to its limits and consistently amaze with the strains they produce. As you can imagine, they have quite a few Cannabis Cups under their belt.
Packaging Sensi Seeds
Sensi Seeds supply all their cannabis seeds with two layers of protection, ensuring safety and quality every time.
Firstly, seeds are housed in a plastic forward surround for added durability. This plastic is attached to the strain card, which details everything you need to know about it, including its general characteristics such as average height, yields and growing time. On the back of the packet, there is a small perforated section of cardboard, giving easy access to the plastic pod the seeds are housed in.
To add extra protection to the seeds, Sensi Seeds take all of the above and then place it in a sealed Sensi Seeds box, ensuring they get to you safe and securely.
Please note, the Sensi Seeds packaging is not resealable once opened. If you do not intend to use all seeds at the same time, ensure that you have suitable seed storage lined up.
Awards Sensi Seeds
Sensi Seeds have been in the cannabis breeding business for a very long time. So it is probably no surprise to know that they have won numerous awards over the years. Here is a collection of some of the best!
