People actually need herb atm? It's flooded here in cali, both with rain and herb.
I agree totally... That's why I figure I get better info from growers than seed companies. But I know it's also about finding that pheno.Anything with a fair amount of Afghani in it seems to get big buds.
You also need bag appeal though, needs to look ok and smell ok.
To he honest, it can be a bit of a search finding a good keeper if you don't live somewhere where clones are traded.
You have to go through a lot of seeds, maybe do some crosses of your own, to find one that has not only hight yield, but fast maturing and good bag appeal and smell.
And then when you do find one that ticks all the boxes, make sure you keep it, so have clones taken before it goes into flower, or reveg it and get clones off it.
I found seed companies tend to exaggerate their seeds; for example "dripping with resin" is a common term they use.
Always turns out to be bullshit.
But I do understand the middle man, and the reason to use one.That's why the consumer needs to buy direct from farmers, eliminate any middle man. prices are high enough for grower and low enough for toker...WINNING !!! I know...easy said then done. This isn't about how the middle guy that didn't put the work in growing can make money. Who cares? If you can grow quality weed, you should be the only one to profit from your harvest. IMO.....

Finally a reasonable positive comment.Some people go to the supermarket and buy the homebrand products, some buy the name brand products.
The homebrand products are cheaper, but often not quite as good quality as the name brand goods.
But people still buy the homebrand products.
Price is often the biggest selling point, and quality second.
I think the idea is to sell a product that does the job as cheaply as possible while still making a profit.
In the end it's not what you want, it's what the customer wants that should dictate what you do.
You have had a monopoly for years, and the prices have been artificially inflated because of that.
Prices are just coming down to a more realistic level for what you are selling, it a plant.
